Review copy provided in exchange for an honest review.
Depending on who you talk to, the Vampire Nation is either corrupt or a necessary evil. The Sect was formed to eradicate all things vampire, or maybe it’s just their mission to protect humans. Echo has been on both sides. He was once a Watcher for the Vampire Nation, but when he uncovers an ongoing plan to kill chosen Sect leaders to force war, he is driven to make a decision he never thought he’d make.
Echo becomes a Ghost, the name used for traitors of the Vampire Nation. It’s a dangerous way to leave the Nation, but Echo is sick of all the blood on his hands. However, leaving the darkness behind isn’t as easy as he thinks. Choices he made might cost him the one person that could help redeem his soul.
Olivia lost so much at a young age, and she has spent the last four years wading through the blood of vampires. Her goal has always been to avenge her family’s massacre. When she met Echo in battle two years ago, there was instant chemistry. Now, he is not only a part of the Sect but her new partner. Will she be able to set aside her hatred for vamps to expose the V Nation for what they really are?
Wow. Okay. Just wow! Sinners in the Dark was a freaking fantastic book. I hadn't expected to like it this much since the previous book wasn't my favorite ever, but man... Inger Iversen blew my mind with this one!
Echo is by far now one of my favorite male vampires. I simply loved him. His attitude and overall sexiness just makes me want to fan myself. And he's Russian. Talk about hot! I also really liked Olivia a.k.a. Via. She was fierce, witty and doesn't let Echo walk all over her. Yeah, she was awesome. I loved the way their relationship was written. Their attraction too each other was obvious yet Echo had to make her see it and I loved it all!
Correct me if I'm wrong but there was a total of three points of view in this book - Echo, Via and Vasily which is Echo's brother. If you know me even a little bit you know that I adore multiple povs. I really do and I even liked Vasily's, even though he was a villain. It's just interesting to get inside the bad guy's head. Though, of course Echo was my favorite's, what with being a little obsessed with the man.
The overall story was very well-written, in my opinion. I loved the plot and the twists involving a certain character from the previous books. Not going to say too much about this but damn that was good.
Sinners in the Dark was amazing. I was really surprised by how much I ended up almost not being able to stop reading and loving the book completely. Whenever I get bored of vampire stories, I'll just have to read one of Inger Iversen's and I'm back on team vampire. Way to go!
