Carli comes back to Pittsburgh to finish Aric off. Aric was planning for her so he is waiting. Night bane is truly awesome and epic. There is never a dull moment and it hurts to put it down. I found myself engrossed with the characters and actually generating emotional feelings for them. I have read the whole Anne Price Trilogy and this first installment is more appealing and epic with vampire folklore various locations that most trilogies that I have read this far. And the best part is that it’s only in one boo and I can’t wait for the next installment. I highly recommend this book to everyone. I am craving more and I wish to tell Travis Lyon that I want a copy of the next one as soon as possible.
