Review: Lucifer by D.B. Reynolds
Lucifer Scuderi is a vampire—handsome and charismatic, a powerful hunter of unusual skill—who arrives in Montreal to take on the most important hunt of his life. Someone has kidnapped the mate of Canada’s ruling vampire lord, and it’s up to Lucifer to find him before his death sets off a crisis that could engulf the entire continent.
Eleanor Morel lost everything—including the love of her life—when she became a vampire. But now, twenty years later, she’s a trusted bodyguard to the Canadian lord, Sophia, and the only person Sophia can count on to lead the search for her endangered mate. But what Eleanor doesn’t know is that the special hunter she’ll be working with is none other than her long-lost love. And he’s demanding answers.
Lucifer’s love for Eleanor burns as hot as his anger towards her for leaving him. But they’ll have to find a way to set history aside and work together if they’re going to unravel the twisted betrayal that threatens not only Sophia and her mate, but the whole continent. Because the European vampires are on the move. And if Canada falls, the rest of North America could follow . . .
There ain’t nothing sexier than a French-Cajun vampire! Lucifer is powerful, charming and very deadly. He’s been asked to help find the kidnapped mate to the Vampire of Canada. His partner for this mission is someone not unknown to Lucifer. In fact, she’s a woman he loved a long time ago. She vanished just vanished. Needless to say, Lucifer is a bit upset. And when a Vampire is upset, nothing good ever comes of it.
Eleanor is a strong vampire. She’s earned her place at the side of her Vampire Lord. She’s loyal, efficient, and also deadly. She’s not too keen on outsiders coming into their territory to help find the Vampire Lord’s mate, but knows they need all the help they can get. When she finds out who is leading the search, she is completely blind-sided. As they work together, old memories start to resurface and lines get blurred quickly as Eleanor’s resistance to the sexy vampire falters. Lucifer’s charm is just as deadly as it was when she was human.
As the pair search for the missing mate, deep layers of rot are revealed in the Canadian Vampire Lord’s territory. Loyalties are tested and traitors are more abundant than allies. Who can be trusted? Lucifer and Eleanor face countless unknown threats. The most dangerous one of all may not involve losing their heads…but their hearts.
I highly recommend this and every book in the Vampires in America series!
