Death follows Dr. Samantha Bartlett throughout her life until it claims everyone close to her. There’s one powerful man responsible on whom Samantha sets her sights for revenge. The price is her soul. For centuries, sex has been the weapon of men…now it’s her turn.
“I never intended to kill the President. As a doctor, I swore an oath to protect life – not take it. But that was before…”
Second year resident, Dr. Samantha Bartlett, is swept from the frigid New York winter to once again confront the sting of death back home – and face those she left behind. But she’s not alone. A strange man she dubs Shades haunts her every step as she seeks answers to the inferno which claimed her grandmother, an eerie reminder of her parents’ deaths. The secrets Samantha uncovers forever changes her image of those she only thought she knew.
Confronted by Shades, Samantha joins a secret underworld known only as the Elite, where a web of power and control is woven deep within governments worldwide. Their sights are set on the power structure of the United States, and Samantha becomes the unlikely key to infiltrating the White House at its most intimate levels.
The quest for blood threatens to destroy Samantha. From the darkness there is no escape.
I received this book for a fair and honest review. This book is a page turner and keeps you guessing. I can usually figure out the twists and turns. I did not with this book. I was constantly surprised and anxious to see what would happen.
Nothing in Samantha’s life is what she thought it was. She got mixed up with the Elite and thought she was going to make things right. Unfortunately things even with the Elite things are not what they seem. I don’t want to spoil it but wow was there a plot aspect I didn’t see coming at all!
I think this book would make for a great movie. There were times when reading the book I thought if not a movie, it would make for a great episode the show 24 on Fox. It was that action packed.
I can’t wait to read the sequel and see what happens with Samantha. The ending of this book left me gasping and wanting more!
