Evolution made music history when one bandmate turned vampire and another joined the vampire hate movement Preservation Group. Gene is trying to cling to the music as his relationship with Kerstrande begins to spiral into the darkness of hidden demons. Jaded by his years as a vampire flunkie, Kerstrande uses his newly won power over New York City to destroy his enemies and protect Gene. But a demon called a Fallen begins to take control of KC, slowly devouring his soul and through him the entire city. Battling against the evil that wants to destroy him, Kerstrande fights to hold onto Gene’s brightness.
A power unlike any other grows within Gene and shines like a beacon to the demons surrounding him. Realizing that only he can save his lover, Gene is willing to do anything to shake the darkness loose. Even if it means reshaping the future, the band, and his own existence.
This is the perfect sequel to finish out the story. I loved this book and how we see Genesis work through the problems his friends were facing. I felt horrible because of the events when he was “hanging out” with Lee. You could tell they haunted him for a while
Kerstrande was so hard to watch in this story. He was suffering so much from the Fallen. I didn’t know if he was doing to make it or not through a good portion of the book. Poor Genesis though. He had to watch his boyfriend slowly seep away as he fought the demon. My favorite line in the book is “I think I broke my legs. Both my legs. Well that’s a feeling I have never experienced before.” I was cracking up there.
I was glad to see Rob got himself a little more under control in this book. But Damon Phillips shows up in this book and wow is he all kinds of whacked out! I kind of want to know more about him but he’s also a tiny bit of a bad guy. I loved Cris in this story and so want more for him. I want him to have his own story.
I was amazed to see Genesis’ transformation throughout the story. Not just in the paranormal sense, but him as a person. He really grew and got to understand himself and his feelings more in the story. He realized his purpose and really came into his own by the end of the book. I desperately want to see more Genesis and Kerstrande but their story ends with such a happy ending there aren’t any loose ends to tie up. Doesn’t make me want more any less.
