Nick, their boss, keeps them busy chasing all those creepy crawly things that tend to go "bump" in the night, keeping the cities safe and totally unaware that doors to other realms even exist. Mainly because Nick is the Door Keeper. He keeps order in what would otherwise be chaos.
But chaos has suddenly reared its ugly head in the form of a dangerous vampire. Ferociously brutal, he is a killing machine and must be stopped. So the last thing Nick needs is another partner. Especially one as sexy as Arrain.
To top it off, Arrain intends on being more than just a partner. Something Nick cannot allow. Not with the secret he harbors.
However, turns out Arrain has a few secrets of his own and one thing he knows. The vampire is after Nick to not only kill the Door Keeper, but to take his power. Can he get Nick to trust him in time to save him?
Review: I certainly hope this is the first in a series, or there's at least a sequel to this book. This is a very inventive world the author has created, or I suppose I should say worlds. Nick is apparently something of a legend, albeit a reluctant one with a guilty conscience. Arrain is just interesting. There's also an age difference between the two that bothers Nick more than Arrain. Arrain seems to be the very determined type. He knows what he wants and what he needs, and he just goes for it. If I have one critique its that he doesn't seem to be very understanding of Nick's issues, or maybe they'll just be worked on as they continue on their path. All in all, very enjoyable. I finished it in a day, and that was a work day. The ending tell me there has to be more, and I will definitely want to read it.
