I have enjoyed all of these books so far. In this one (back to Menolly's story) she is invited to a Ball - an offer she cannot refuse - by Roman, one of the older vampires. She finds out his background, and becomes his consort, while planning a commitment ceremony with Nerissa. All while searching for a vampire serial killer. She goes out on her own a bit more in this one as Delilah is recuperating from injuries incurred (in the last book) and Camille is dealing with issues of her own.
