Luna Sea Rakshasa inhabits The Dominion, a realm of immortals hidden within the world of humans. She is a Beanne Sidhe huntress, a killer of dark and dangerous things, but she harbors a secret that has been tearing her apart for nearly a thousand years. On the cusp of finally facing the demon
vampire who sired her, the last thing she needs is an obsessed vampire who stirs things she would rather not feel.
Aveon Ap Conwy was human before he was found, dying on a
battlefield, and turned into a vampire. For a century he has been tormented by the personal war to keep his humanity. Nothing has been stronger until the night he meets Luna. She arouses his deepest hungers, but Aveon knows he must resist his urge to take her...because if he tastes one drop
of her blood, they will both be lost.
Thrown together in an unwelcome alliance and fighting the heat that simmers between them, they travel to the mythical domain of Luna's demon sire. As their worlds merge Luna and Aveon become bound by something stronger than lust. Can Luna lay aside centuries of prejudice and open her heart to the only man who can stand beside her in the battle with the vampire king?

I have to admit, when I first read the cover and saw Lunacy
And The Vampire as the title I thought, Lunacy? But understood the title once I dug into reading it. The heroine is Luna Sea, play on words due to the fact her father calls her Lunacy.
Luna Sea has been on a life-long quest; vengeance against her father who is an ancient demon, and whom created the vampire race.
There is a lot going on in this book, including different factions of vampires called Abstainers, and I don’t want to give it all away by trying to sum up the book. I encourage readers to explore
this book on their own. There was an intricate story woven around Luna and Aveon, and you see their interest in each other turn into something much deeper than infatuation or lust.
The author took a complex concept, and did a great job of painting an intriguing world around
it. It’s not your everyday vampire story, which now days, is a good thing. I loved the idea of the quickening for bringing forth the beating of long silent hearts. There’s something hauntingly poetic
about that, but don’t get me wrong, the characters in the book are warriors, bad-ass for
One thing I found a bit distracting as I read was all the completely different character names, and uniqueness of explaining what kind of creature such as Beanne Sidhe huntress. I stopped the flow of the read so I could re-read names/origins to make sure I got them. But let’s face it. In the world of the paranormal and urban fantasy, names like Bob and Jane, Assassins from Newport, would be bland and not at all otherworldly.
All in all, the book was thought provoking, steamy, gritty, action-packed, and well done. I hope to be reading more from this talented author, Evie Jayne.
