Calli Demour is
part of an order called the Seralin, who are watchers and try to
keep order between the Kindred, who are vampires, and the rest of
the world. She does not have any family, but has a close
relationship with her teacher, Ciel. Calli wants to learn more
about the Kindred, especially one called Marcus whose diary she
found and has been obsessed with ever since.
there are rules that he must follow to remain in good standing with
the Kindred and their coven. Marcus has endured some painful times
during his existence. He has had his heart broken, but is
completely amazed by this overwhelming desire he has to be near
Calli. He realizes what it will cost him, but he cannot break the
bond that pulls him toward Calli.
Calli has spent
years trying to gather information about the Kindred from Ciel, and
he has spent as much time trying to refocus her attention
elsewhere. Calli sneaks away from the Ciel and the Seralin to find
Marcus. She cannot resist him and is even more drawn to him after
seeing him and she is pleased when he responds back. Marcus and
Calliís attraction is about to completely change both their lives
forever as they break rules that have been around for centuries and
shake up both the Seralin and Kindred worlds. Will their feelings
be enough to sustain them or will their worlds be destroyed forever?
intense read filled with a very deep plot. Danielle Devon has
created a world that pulls the reader into the center of it and
engages their interest immediately. Calli is a head strong woman
who knows what her place should be, but cannot move past a love she
feels for a person who is forbidden to her. Marcus has never had a
problem following the rules of his coven, but Calli makes him
question their rules and his beliefs about love. I enjoyed
Forsaken and am hoping to read more from Danielle Devon
about the world of the Seralin.
