Blurb: When an ancient Italian vampire travels to the pioneering Australian outback, what he finds there triggers a decades-long love triangle from which there is no escape.
Mack, a young Australian cattle farmer, makes his living on his father’s cattle station. The work is hard and the days are long but he is content with the life he has been born into. Unfortunately for his family, he is awakened to forbidden desires of the flesh by intriguing visitors from far-off Italy.
When these visitors reveal themselves as lustful creatures of the night, Mack bites off more than he can chew and finds himself in a predicament he is ill-equipped to handle. Lost and seemingly alone, he spirals into a deadly path toward a decades-long love triangle between himself, the monster who made him and the love of his undead life.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of violence and death.

Review: The book starts off great as we see Zoran leave his lover Bela for an adventure. Bela moves on and tries to take over Mack’s property. But after this is where I found myself wondering what was happening at times.
The writing was good but some scenes seemed too rushed while others seemed to linger. I never did quite figure out the love triangle in the story. It was just a little messy and confusing.
All in all it was an o.k. with adventure, love, gore, fighting and action.
