Hold your breath and grab your armchair! This gripping, chilling, fifth volume of the Gardella Vampire Chronicles is all fans of the series could desire. Gleason makes your blood run hot and cold as she skillfully paints a portrait of a unique world of vampires and vampire hunters.

Victoria, Dowager Duchess of Rockley, has more on her mind than vampire hunting and stakes. She's determined to force fellow vampire hunter Max Pesaro into confessing his love for her. Victoria is torn between Max and her onetime lover Sebastian as they're sucked into the fight to save the world from the Vampire Queen's wrath. They also must locate five magical rings and an orb that will allow them to close the portal through which a pack of demons from hell are let loose on earth. Their adventures lead to new and unexpected danger, passion, sacrifice and surprising revelations that offer new possibilities and happiness. (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Mar., 350 pp., $7.99)
