Advertising Exec, Clarity Parker thought she'd never see Baron Ford again. Five years ago, they shared the date of her life and then he literally vanished into thin air. Now he's back and has asked that she, exclusively, be assigned to his multi-million dollar account. On the day the fog rolls in, not only can she no longer avoid him but she can no longer avoid herself. See, Clarity has an ability that she's run away from her entire life. She's learning an ability like hers doesn't come for free, and something or someone is trying to make her pay for it with her life. Her world is soon turned upside down after she escapes to a place called Enu. It's here Clarity learns who and what she truly is. She also learns that Baron Ford is Baron Ze Feldis; he's a vampire, and what bonds them runs deeper than anything she can ever imagine. Their bond is further tested when they end up not only battling Baron's psycho ex-vampire girlfriend, who wants Clarity dead but also "the evil" as they journey in search of the book which holds the Prophecy of the Seven Seeds. One thing's for sure, from this point on, their lives will never be the same.
This is the first book in the Parched Series. Clarity Parker has a great job and wants for nothing. That is until she meets Baron Ford. All through this book Clarity has to be patient to find out what is so special about her while everyone else seems to already know. She has to put her trust not only in Baron Ford but her Guardian, Viesel Egos. This is not your regular vampire story. This has twists and turns and gives you a new perspective about God and Adam and Eve. This book does not overwhelm you with the religious background but gives you just enough to understand how everything began. This is a good book and I will continue to follow the series.
Rated: 4 out of 5
