There exist those who oppose the Dark Ones: mystics attuned to the earth, the druids. From San Bernadino they come, sending one of their mightiest, their Draige-Uisge. He can shape energy, twist it to harm or heal. But he must have something to bend, and the requisite power can be summoned by one method alone¿and from one source: the beauty Xiao Fei, the Phoenix Tear. Her blood is the key, along with her ecstasy; her union with Patrick means salvation.
Yet in a world of vampires, werewolves and evil untamed, even a kiss can be deadly. Opposition lurks in every shadow, peril in every caress¿and both redemption and oblivion lie in one woman being...seduced by Crimson.

This made me really angry! I listen in 1.5 hour chunks, and in the first chunk you get the classic male-rape fantasy - woman forced into sex which is totally mind blowing for her as her traitorous body yearns towards him - shame on this author for promoting such drivel!
Then in the next chunk after she's forgiven him for virtually raping her, they make out in a room full of people. Now maybe they could forget the others but I sure as hell couldn't - it was really uncomfortable and I almost cheered when someone tells then to knock it off - hear hear, say I!
Later, having specifically told us how precious water is in the werewolf tunnels, they make out under the shower - wasting water! Again, maybe they forgot, but I spent the whole time thinking turn the bloody water off!
The ending was flip and this couple never get together just because they want to - there's always the \"we have to save the world through sex\" thing going on. Oh and the heroine is a hemophiliac whose blood heals, and she drips and pours and gushes all over the place, and it's a hell of a long way in before there's any mention of how pale or tired she is.
No, I didn't like this. I'd have chucked the book, but at these prices I feel I have to listen to the bitter end. And with an audio book it's difficult to skip bits!
