In a well hidden place, with Berich Lochem hunters as his prisoners and terrifying new species of vampires as his slaves, Nathaniel Krane awaits. He's like a phantom, planning away with very few aware of his existance, patiently awaiting to destroy and conquer. If that's not enough to worry about, there's also the repercussions of Cain - the very first vampire - roaming the earth. In The Cain Letters, the legendary huntress Alexandra Glade is forced to set him free. While she doesn't know if he himself is a danger to the world, his awakening certainly will be. The seeds are already growing...


Though the story is told from a number of point of views, the main ones are that of Alexandra Glade, Nathaniel Krane, Kyan, the captured comrade that Alexandra is determined to find, and Cardinal Felix Delgado, Alexandra's long time mentor. While the Cardinal studies The Cain Letters, unleashing a dark battle for himself, Alexandra is on the move. She has to find Kyan, but she can't until seeking help from others who are less than willing to get involved.


In the midst of all of this, time ticks away. Nathaniel awaits to make his move...but not for much longer.


This story worked its way into my heart. Months ago, I read and reviewed The Cain Letters, the first book (http://fuisti.blogspot.com/2011/01/cain-...). I thought that one was okay, but this one blew me away. Because Alexandra wasn't as able to rely on her badassery as a heroine to win, readers get to see more of her emotional side and the cliches associated with a badass heroine disappear. In fact, all the characters from the first book get even more fleshed out. The new characters introduced made me laugh, smile, and cheer (in my head), and I enjoyed the layers of sub-plots all merging into one plot.


One thing to watch for, reader. This story can get pretty religious near the end, and if you're not into Christianity, there's a chance the climax will bother you. Looking past that, I found this ending to be more fulfilling, at least in its execution, than the first book's ending. I'm very interested to see where Pierre takes this series in the third book. ( )
