Publisher's Summary

By day...
Los Angeles, 2040: When the terrorist known as Medusa threatens to kill millions with a stolen nuclear bomb, Nick Jameson makes a fateful decision. He reveals himself on global television as a Daywalker - a vampire with a soul. To save Los Angeles, Nick exposes not only his own gifts but three separate cultures based on millennia-old magic.
By night...
The three metahuman races exist in careful balance, working to maintain a fragile peace. Nick and his fellow Daywalkers successfully master their natural bloodlust. The Sentinels, armed with both magic and steel, repress their warlike instincts. And even some Nightwalkers, normally their natural enemies, have deserted the Court of Shadows to join the triple alliance. Nick Jameson is deeply involved with two such Nightwalkers - handsome Lorcan and powerful Rory. Both men love Nick. But neither can protect the new Ambassador to Humanity from the events he has set in motion.
By the sword...
Jeremy Harkness was lured into Medusa's service under false pretenses. A loner with no one and nothing to cling to, he was willing to die for his cause. But the night Medusa tried to obliterate Los Angeles, Jeremy met Nick Jameson, triggering the onset of his own psychic gifts. For Jeremy is the third race of metahuman, a Sentinel, born to kill the Nightwalkers with no quarter asked or offered. And neither Medusa nor the Court of Shadows will settle for peace when they can make war.

A Splendid Surprise

When I chose this book to read, I will admit that I was not 100% sure that this was the book for me. Daywalkers, Nightwalkers, & Sentinels...there all here. The book opens with an action scene and continues on a steady pace until the end. This is so much more than a "gay vampire" story. Ahsanuddin's tale consists of romance, adventure, thrills, excitement, terror, science fiction with a human twist, and toss in a little space and you have the makings for a fantastic story! Redemption, hope, love, and growth...the elements needed to fully explore the very act of living. I highly recommend this book. I look forward to reading the remainder of the series to find out what happens to Nick, Jeremy, Scott, Toby, the Armistice and the slew of other characters that enter into this realm of wonder. And on a side note, to discover that Ahsanuddin is a hematologist...yep, a blood doctor! Awesome to the 10th degree! The narration of David Stifel was fantastic. He brought the story to life... adding depth and distinction to the characters of this tale. Enjoy the journey!

Make a Pact to read this series.

Cashing in on the vampire hoopla, but who cares? Great story, well written, excellent narration. But read the series in reverse order. The story is better ordered if you read book 2 first.
