Hunters and vampires seek The Vampyrnomicon, a book that could destroy the vampires...or mankind. Within the vaults of the Smithsonian Institute lies the key to finding The Vampyrnomicon, the Book of the Undead that contains the history and secrets of the vampires. According to legend, whoever possesses the book can establish a vampire nation on earth - or destroy the undead once and for all. With an opportunity to end the war against the undead so close, Drake Matthews is determined to find the book. But the vampires also want The Vampyrnomicon. When Master Chiang Shih and her coven of the most powerful and dangerous vampires arrive in Washington to claim the book as their own, the hunters find themselves facing their most deadly enemy yet. With the stakes so high, so is the ferocity of the struggle.
Holy Moly! The author's writing style has developed SO! The characters are even more developed than they were in book 1 and I couldn't help but fall in love with a few of them. Experiencing this story line just keeps getting more and more awesome with every turn of the pages. I'll have to admit that the length kind of scared me at first, but there is so much action that you flip through the pages fairly quickly and don't even realize you're halfway done when you get up for a break. I can't wait to see what happens in book 3, Dominion :)
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
