Early Review: Twilight Fulfilled by Maggie Shayne

Twilight Fulfilled (Wings in the Night, #18)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Utanapishtim has paid dearly for the sin of creating the vampire race—imprisoned in a living death for centuries, driven to near madness. With a single white-hot glance, he immolates his descendants…and the vampire Armageddon begins.
Beautiful and deadly Brigit Poe, not wholly vampire but fiercely loyal to that shared bloodline, is called into action. She abhors yet cannot deny her destiny: to vanquish the once-great king of the immortals and save the vampire race.
Two warriors, equally matched in power and determination, are soon locked in an unwinnable battle, only to discover a passion so shocking it threatens every truth they've ever known—even as they must face one final battle that seems fated to end in death and heartbreak for them both.

My review:

Bridget Poe, self described (and family described) "bad twin" is given the assignment to kill the Father of the Vampires, Utana. As a 1/4 vampire, 3/4 human, she is the only one who can. So begins the final battle to save all vampire kind from destruction by both humans and their forefather.

First let me say, that though this is the 18th (and appears to be final) book of a series, this book can be read as a stand alone book.

I personally loved this book. Bridget's sense of humor, though occasionally dark, is full of snarky and witty things. She is frustrated by her family (and her own self) for thinking that she is the "bad twin", she so desperately wants to earn the acceptance that she feels that she isn't getting. Utana is a man from the beginning of time, before the Great Flood, has been in a living death for thousands of years, only to be resurrected in modern-day America. He is literally out of his mind because of being trap for thousands of years, and he is seeking redemption for what he feels is a his crime. Together, they make an amazing couple... He is the strong ancient man with old fashioned values, while she is a modern woman use to being in charge. The dynamics are delightfully hilarious, especially her responses to his ancient manly comments.

I highly recommend this book, and I'm definitely planning to read the rest of the books too!

**Be warned there are a couple of scenes that might not be appropriate for certain audiences.**
