Perpetual Light by Jordan K. Rose

Publisher: Crescent Moon Press
Pages: 286

(Released: February 26, 2012)

From the Cover:

Fate is cruel. Especially when the one you've sworn to love for all eternity, the very soul who changed your destiny, is the last person you should trust.

After more than three hundred years of running, Lucia Dicomano must make a choice.
Forced to take her place as a Pharo of Redemption, the divine slayer needs to master her forgotten powers. Lucia turns to Vittorio, the one vampire she's failed to deliver from eternal damnation. But overcoming smoldering remnants of love, lust and anger aren't their only obstacles.

Samuel, who may know Lucia better than she knows herself, hunts her with a fervor stoked by a thousand years of vengeful hatred. His plan-capture and enslave the weakened Pharo then take control of her elusive power.

Can Lucia trust Vittorio long enough to reclaim her powers? Or will she have no choice but to kill him and battle Samuel alone?

Lucia has been alive more lifetimes than she can remember, only she doesn't know it. In this lifetime, she's Lucia, the designer, but for all time, she's a Pharo of Redemption. Only she can bring the lost to the light. Her dreams, in reality, are nothing more than remembrances from the past, some purely pleasant, others outlandish nightmares to drive any sane person crazy. One constant in and out of her dreams, and real life, is Vittorio. He's the one true love of her life, and potentially, her deadliest enemy. Because, she wants him, it the bottom of her soul, he's the one who breathes life into her body. He's also one of the lost and must be brought to the light, and to do so, he must die.

Vittorio was ripped away from his cherished life that he shared with Lucia by a creature who turned him, possessing him, body and soul. He hates the killing, the blood, the madness. Only Lucia can save him from his cursed existence, and from himself. The search for her is the only reason he keeps going. And, when he finds her, he refuses to let her go, even if she is sworn to bring the lost to the light. But, first, he was teach her everything she needs to know to defeat Samuel. It is Samuel who has stolen her away, time and time again, and Vittorio refused to lose to him and his minions again. He will keep Lucia, or die trying.

Perpetual Light by Jordan K. Rose is a different twisted on the vampire love story. One that traverses the lines of time. Lucia and Vittorio's story starts three centuries ago when she is the daughter of the local vintner and he is a laborer on her father's vineyard. They marry, ready to start a wonderful life when Vittorio is torn from their happy existence and plunged into the world of death and destruction. Kerina steals the life from his body, turning him into a blood-drinker. It forces Lucia into her destiny as a Pharo of Redemption, bringing the lost into the light and the Abyss. Through all of her lifetimes, Vittorio has searched for and finally, his goal is in sight when Samuel raises his ugly head in a bid for the same soul, Lucia. It is Vittorio's goal to keep them both alive until Lucia realizes her full powers and Samuel is removed, one way or another. But, Lucia must bring the lost, even if she doesn't want to, she's bound by a power greater than herself.

Perpetual Light is a new twist in the vampire genre, one where the vampires may exist in the daylight, but not very well, their beauty becomes less and they're more vulnerable. Vittorio has created a small family for himself, but only forsaking those who would have died with his assistance. Lucia has a hard time forgiving him this, but everyone needs companionship, and she can hardly deny him his. Her jealous of other women though makes her realize another important fact, she wants Vittorio for herself, and only her. And there in lays the conundrum, how can she have what she has sworn to kill?
Perpetual Light is a fast, exciting read, taking place in the quite vineyards of Italy's past to the present day streets of Rhode Island. The evil Samuel would like to drain Lucia dry and claim her for himself, but Vittorio is having none of that, Samuel will meet the light, if it's the last thing he does. As a reader, I'm always on the look for something in the vampire genre to read, my first love, and Jordan K. Rose delivers that difference in Perpetual Light. It's one not to be missed by vampire lovers everywhere.

Five out of Five Fairy kisses for this reader and lover of the vampire genre.

I met the lovely Jordan K. Rose at RT2012 this Spring, (and yes, she really is lovely) where she offered me a copy of her book to review. So glad she did! All opinions expressed are my own.
