This follow-up to last year's emotionally charged The Darkest Touch picks up two weeks after the Realm of Light's bittersweet victory. War is not without loss and sacrifice, and these themes are explored in this latest gut-wrenching installment. Burton continues to display a deft hand as she combines emotional drama with plenty of sizzling sex and dangerous action.

At a critical moment in battle, demon hunter Dalton refused to follow orders and kill half-demon Isabelle Deveraux. Instead, Dalton snatched her and disappeared to his hidden refuge in the Louisiana bayou.

Dalton doesn't know that their leader was killed in the battle and that Michael now determines their fate. But Dalton and Isabelle are not Michael's biggest problem: The realm may have just discovered a demon breed who can walk in sunlight. (DELL, Jul., 432 pp., $7.99)
