Eli is one of the Slayers; a member of
the Guardians’ League dedicated to protecting humans from the
Outcast vampires among them. One night, when he is chasing
several of his enemies, he is led into a trap. A trap that,
unknowingly, a mortal woman has also walked into. Now faced
with her possible death, he must keep her safe. He runs,
knowing that he will get revenge upon Caen, the Outcast that
bit her, at a later date.
Now that he has her, Eli doesn’t know
what to do with her. One of the Slayers must keep her as a
fledgling to guide her in her new life, and when his friend
Diego refuses to do it, Eli has no choice. One of the oldest
among his kind, he must watch her through her Change and
decide what to do with her afterwards.
Renee Hardin never expected this to
happen to her. She is furious that Eli has done this to her,
but she has nowhere else to go. She has to stay with him,
learn from him. With threats closing in all around her, Renee
has to find a way to stay away from the Outcasts and the
Slayers out for her blood. When she finds herself falling in
love with Eli, Renee doesn’t know what to do. Can a Slayer
and a woman sired by an Outcast find love together?
With appearances from Sian and Diego from
Hunted, Outcast manages to take up neatly where
the previous story left off. The world within Outcast
is interesting and multi-layered, the characters are
fascinating and the love story is deep and complicated¾exactly
the way I like it. I loved the interaction between Renee and
Eli, the little quips that she threw at him, their budding
relationship and the revelations about Eli’s past.
Outcast had me captivated from the first page and I
can’t recommend it enough.
