About this ebook

“Have you ever stopped to consider which one of us is truly prey?” She still spoke in a soft purr, her tone somehow both menacing and sensual. “Maybe, human, we hunt you.”


Vampire Hunter László Fidatov finally snares his first kill, but his prize isn’t anything like he’s been taught to expect. With her dark, luxurious hair and red lips, she is every inch a woman. Drawn to the unexpected vulnerability in her eyes, he wrestles with an immediate, powerful attraction to his vampire enemy…never imagining the ugly consequences of his forbidden feelings.


Vika Năstase is desperate to escape her people, but she’s trapped in a miserable life by her blood-need. Unable to refuse a hopeless mission against a Hunter, she must do the impossible - seduce her darkly handsome adversary into accepting a truce.


But when tragedy strikes, László and Vika are once again thrust into opposite worlds. Embroiled in an age-old vendetta, both soon realize that their happiness can only be won by defying those who would keep them apart.


But will they be able to avoid further bloodshed on their way into each other’s arms…?


In this tale of forbidden love you’ll be whisked back to haunting Transylvania, the birthplace of Tracy Tappan’s “wildly popular” (Readers’ Favorite) Community Series, and catch a prequel glimpse of the dark vampire heroes who have readers everywhere fanning themselves!


“Tappan's storyline and characters bring this series to life in a way that isrefreshing. It's wonderful to find a unique slant on the vampire genre, but Tracy pulled it off.”

This is a short introduction to The Community series, and it’s an extremely good one! I will tell you vampires are not one of my favorite paranormal tropes, but after reading this prequel I am hooked on this series. It’s an intriguing and unique premise which grabs your attention from the beginning and holds you enthralled beyond the end. Fair warning, you will be left wanting more but in a very good way. Whether vampires are your thing or not, I highly recommend this very engaging and captivating tale!

This story took a bit for me to get into it. I got lost amid the story. Another reviewer mentioned that reading the first 4 books would help and I think she is right. Once I did get into it, I started to like it. The characters are so different from the other stories I read but they work their into your head anyways. I am now going to get the rest.

It was a memorable read in all the right ways. The characters are really interesting, so well developed you'll think they're based on living people. The story was not what I was expecting at all. I wanted, and still do want to know more about the key characters because their story is going to be so very interesting--the challenges they have ahead of them. I know one of the characters appear in another of Tracy's books, but that's not nearly enough for me. Like Oliver, please may I have some more. I love these books, though they inspire my imagination on so many levels. It’s a great book to curl up with and ignore the day to day reality.
