Reason for Reading: next in the series.
In the distance a wave of blood was building.
Comments: As Book 11 of a series a brief summary shall suffice. The final countdown is beginning. The characters who will participate are gathering together. Several events happening in quick succession starts the ball rolling towards the end battle. By the end of the book, a shock and a surprising twist have the reader gasping to reach the final battle between good evil that will bring this awesome series to an end in Book 12.
Once I again, I love this series and this book was no different. Several shocking incidents happen but the books main purpose is to set the scene for the last book and would make no sense whatsoever if read out of sequence. Not my favourite of the series but a necessary prelude to book 12 which I will be requesting from the library as soon as I finish this review. If you are a vampire fan than this series is a must read. I'm so excited for book12 and yet sad to see the end of these characters. Fortunately, the movie of the first three books is set for release in the summer of next year (2009) and I am definitely going to be there!
