My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was very happy that this was done because it gave me a chance to catch up with characters who have not been seen fully for a while. This was the perfect short to bring this portion of the story to closure. With Sydney having been turned and not dealing with it, you had to wonder if she would even survive. Then there is the little fact that a serial killer that she put away has escaped and is making his way to New Orleans for some payback.
Anthony, Sydney’s old partner arrives in New Orleans with the news that a serial killer Syd put away has escaped and is more than likely on his way to her for pay back. What he finds is Sydney turned and unable to feed because she has psyched herself out because a demon tried to kill her. Kade asks for Anthony’s help and because he has always been a little in love with Syd, he gladly gives it. But Sydney is still a cop at heart and she wants to bring this guy down for even thinking about coming after her.
Though it is a short story it is a fully realized one that gives a great story with characters not seen before who are very interesting. It also sets up the next book in the series with a character who has been elusive for several books but who you know has been orchestrating from the shadows. A must read!
* I just finished listening to this book on 9/10/15. Listening was even better than when I read it. The narrator gives such life to all the characters, though the women do sound like a man doing a woman, he still gives it a great try. This can be enjoyed both ways very easily.
