Aden surprisingly wants to protect Sid from harm and help her end the slavery ring. Sid reveals that Aden and company missed an important vampire in the slavery ring named Carl Pinto, but Aden shrugs it off. Will the slavery ring be stopped? What does Sid mean to Aden? Will Aden become next Vampire Lord? Your answers await you in Aden.
I just adore this series. I've found a new favorite in Aden. Please don't get me wrong, I love Raphael and Lucas, but there is just something about Aden that curls my toes. All I can think of is one word: Yum! I found that Sidonie Reid is on par as a heroine like Cyn. She can match Aden toe to toe and then some. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in series. I think it needs to hurry up though!
