From the opening chapter of this terrific series, Stein has sent her gutsy heroine on an uncharted journey filled with danger and bitter betrayal. A key element of this series has been the question, is Anna Strong the “chosen one” and what exactly does that mean? In this pivotal but emotionally brutal book, skillful Stein reveals some critical answers and delivers some devastating blows. Like a fine wine, this series is improving with age. Brava!

With the first anniversary of her becoming a vampire rapidly approaching, Anna would just as soon forget the date. However that’s not quite possible as, according to legend, if she is the “chosen one” her identity will soon be revealed.

When Anna and her boyfriend Lance visit Palm Springs, she is brought face to face with true evil in the form of Julian Underwood, Lance’s maker. Underwood has plans for Anna and he will do whatever is necessary to bring them to fruition. Although Anna has tried to ignore the fact that she might have a unique destiny, she may not be able to outrun fate! (ACE, Sep., 304 pp., $7.99)
