In the depths of human desire, eternity awaits...
Beneath the foundation of a mansion in the heart of the Garden District, Alexandra will perform an illegal surgery. Her patient's disfigurement is beyond medical repair. But his body's ability to recuperate from his wounds borders on the miracolous.
Alexandra knows Michael Cyprien is no ordinary patient. Intrigued by how his remarkable physiology might benefit medical sciense, she is even more compelled by his presence-and the mystery sorrunding him and his associates, a cadre of immortals who call themselves the Darkyn...
In the city of chicago there is this very special doctor named Alexander Keller, a brilliant reconstructive surgeon. While in New Orlean's, dwelling in the shadows, is Michael Cyprien, a reclusive millionaire that is in desperate need of Alex's skills.
One word comes to mind when I think about this book, raw. The writing, the style, the story, a good raw. I love Doctor Alex, cynic, sarcastic, aetheist, my kind of girl. Michael well, he may be very sensous, but not my kind, he is still a good read though. The debate between religion and science is very interesting, the vampires think of themselves as "cursed" by God, while Alex think of them as a experiment gone wrong. Good start to a new series for me. Eager to read the next one.
