The characters are so well written that not only will you feel like you actually know them, you’ll miss them when you finish that last page. The brisk pace and witty dialogue make Nightbred a book to really savor.
Jamys Durand is an immortal warrior who has survived some of the most heinous persecution imaginable. When he falls in love with a human woman, he is distressed that he has nothing to offer her. Discovering a lost Templar treasure could be the answer to his dreams. Chris Lang wants to be with Jamys forever, so they set off together to find the jewels. But there is someone merciless standing between them and their happily-ever-after. He is another immortal who can possess other immortals’ minds — but what he really wants to possess is Chris.
