"From the author of the best sellers The Last Werewolf and Talulla Rising, the hair-raising conclusion to the saga that has galvanized readers' imaginations: an electrifying, startlingly erotic love story that gives us the final battle for survival between werewolves and vampires, and one last incisive--brilliantly ironic--look at what it means to be, or to not be, human. Talulla has settled into an uneasy equilibrium: with her twins at her side and the devotion of her lover Walker, it's a normal family life--except for their monthly transformation into werewolves hungry for human flesh. But even this tenuous peace is interrupted for Talulla by nagging thoughts of Remshi, the 20,000-year-old vampire who haunts her dreams. In turn Remshi can't escape the feeling that he knows Talulla from years before (many, many, many years). They have their distractions: Talulla is being pursued by a fanatical Christian cult, and Remshi is following the trail of reckless feedings by a newly turned vampire. But, as the novel unfurls, they are inextricably drawn to each other--and toward the moment when an ancient prophecy may finally come to pass--in this tale of pulse-pounding supernatural suspense"--

Overall I felt this book didn’t quite measure up to the two previous ones. Although I was pleased with the ending and Glen Duncan does a fantastic job of reaching into the mind of both vampires and werewolves, I felt this book had less to say than the other two. I found the similarity between the voice of Remshi to the original voice of Jake a little off-putting. I do however believe this trilogy will long be the werewolf saga that all others will be measured against.

This started out gorgeous--I was completely enthralled with the vampire storyline and the vampire. And then... boom, got dropped into a parallel storyline about a werewolf pack that, well, meh. I never could quite care enough about those folks for their fate to matter all that much to me; they seemed obviously doomed in any case. Perhaps this comes of coming into the trilogy at the third book instead of the beginning; I like this author's style enough to give that a try. But for now I have to say this book was disappointing in spite of truly impressive storytelling ability.

Final volume in a horror trilogy that transcended the blood and gore inherent in werewolf and vampire novels while also reveling in it.
