Blurb:   Lance Shaw has achieved the impossible: secured an interview with the enigmatic and reclusive leader of the Inferi Brotherhood, a splinter group of vampires that broke off from the Romanorum in the 13th century. When he meets Triarius, he’s instantly intrigued. The vampire is petite but possesses a personality that far exceeds anyone Lance has ever known. Triarius isn’t beautiful by any means, and the silver mask he wears over half his scarred face attests to the brutality of his world. But just when Lance thinks he’s done, Triarius changes the game. Abducted and dragged deep beneath the Snowdonia Mountains in Wales, Lance discovers an entire world no one has ever seen, and, in time, he discovers the true man behind the silver mask.

Review: Lance is a reporter and has been investigating vampires for years. He gets an interview with Triarius, the mysterious, dangerous head of the Brotherhood, but does he get more than he bargained for?

I really liked this book. I loved that the vampires were evil, scary creatures. I liked how the tow bonded. I also liked the fact that Triarius wore a mask, his face was disfigured, and he wasn’t the typical pretty boy, hot sexy vampire model.

I did feel this book reminded me way to much of Interview with a Vampire though, and there was a lot of repetition in the sex scenes, but over-all the story was fascinating, captivating, and pretty hot too.

I recommend this if you like reporters, new worlds, Ghouls and of course Vampires!
