Valen is a vampire hunter, going from city to city, clearing the nests of vampires. As the battles with the vampires become more and more difficult, Valen knows that he is losing the war. With other hunters keeping secrets and a mysterious light source at one scene, Valen does not know who to trust, but when he came across an enigmatic woman playing darts, he knew that he had to put his faith in someone.

The way the author describes Valen, you can sense he is a man on a mission, but that it took its toll. He took every death and every failure to heart.

As this is a story about vampire hunters you can expect action from the moment you start reading. At the start of this book, I did feel sorry for Valen as he had no one to watch his back or to talk to when he was feeling really depressed.  However, after he joined up with a partner his whole demure changed and he did start to feel more confident with himself and his actions.

Running through the story is the mysterious light source and whilst some fact about it come out, I hope more is explained in book 2.

This book is different to others that I have read about vampire hunters as this shows the loneliness of a vampire hunter. A good read full of vampire kills
