An exciting new star in contemporary urban fantasy, Tracey O’Hara returns with Death’s Sweet Embrace, the second book in her Dark Brethren series. In the bestselling vein of J.R. Ward and Patricia Briggs, O’Hara follows up her sensational debut, Night’s Cold Kiss, with a sizzling supernatural take on the Romeo and Juliet story, as two forbidden young lovers from rival shapeshifter tribes must join forces with Aeturnus vampires to thwart a fiendish serial killer. Gripping, dark, and sensual, Death’s Sweet Embrace is an exceptional supernatural adventure that will appeal equally to discriminating fantasy fans and lovers of paranormal romance.
After centuries of secret conflict, humans and parahumans have reached an uneasy truce. But unspeakable evil now threatens the tenuous peace.Teenaged shapeshifters are being slaughtered by a sadistic serial killer who rips their still-beating hearts from their paralyzed bodies. A task force forms to halt the madness, including the vampiric Aeternus Antoinette Petrescu, as well as Kitt Jordan and Raven Matokwe, members of enemy Animalian tribes . . . and forbidden lovers.
A centuries-old blood feud has divided their shapeshifting peoples, and if their passion is discovered it will doom them both. But past hostilities must be put aside, for the killer they seek is but the first sign of the all-consuming nightmare of The Dark Brethren.
