Synopsis

About Aaron and how he got reborn into a vampire.

Thoughts

It took me a little while to place exactly who Aaron was in the Women of the Otherworld universe. However, after two pages, I was able to finally understand who this illusive do-gooder was. The appearance of Cassandra helps to further the identification of this character – a vampire member of the supernatural council.

Armstrong’s use of vampirism in her stories takes yet another turn which I didn’t expect – it is not just a process which occurs through biting, but also an inherited trait for some. This different take on what is possibly a genetic mutation to enhance a member of society’s survival was a really nice new approach. As was Aaron’s approach to the required one death a year, and even those whom he fed off of. Although he feels guilt at the taking of another’s life force, he finds a way in which to do it in a conscientious way.
