How I Got It: I own it
Demons, enemies of both mortals and the undead, have found their way to Earth. To defeat them, Victoria Gardella proposes an alliance between her slayers and Lilith’s vampires. But the vampire queen wants the former slayer Max Pesaro in return for her cooperation—a small price for the world, but a price Victoria is unwilling to pay...
An amazing conclusion to a great paranormal romance series. I loved seeing where the story led. And I'm super excited to find a happy ending, albeit one with a huge twist. I can see the need for the twist, but holy crap it was a shocker. My only complaint was that I wanted a bit more of an ending. Thankfully, we Gleason made a short story to give the readers a bit more of a ending.
This is a short story (about 30 pages) that takes place after the end of As Shadows Fade, the fifth book in the Victoria Gardella Vampire Chronicles series.
And this is the story that helped me find a bit of closure for the characters. Plus, it was a cute little short story to follow up. Love it!
