Review: Seventh Circle (Vampires Realm) by Felicity Heaton

Synopsis (via Goodreads Amazon):
Dark, sensual and fast-paced, Seventh Circle is a story of forbidden love so strong that it will save the world.

Born with strange powers similar to a vampire's, Lilith has spent her life hunting demons for Section Seven. Now, on the very same night that she watches a vampire kill her best friend, she's faced with her worse nightmare.

A client who is not only attractive, but a vampire.

Lincoln, a powerful pure blood vampire, has a problem. The prophecy he's caught up in is coming to pass and his only chance of survival is relying on those he hates most–vampire hunters. It has been foretold that one will save him, a female hunter, and when he meets her, the attraction he feels is both instantaneous and forbidden.

Their mutual attraction becomes difficult to deny as they work to unravel the mystery of a contract between Lincoln's lord and the Devil. The barriers around their hearts fall, but is there only pain ahead of them? With Lincoln's life on the line, can Lilith find the strength to protect him and embrace a side of herself that she wished didn't exist? Can Lincoln overcome his fear in order to save Lilith even if it means parting from her forever? What price will they pay to be together?
My Take: I enjoyed this one quite a bit.  It wasn't quite as emotionally wrenching as Winter's Kiss (meaning that I didn't get all teary eyed, thankyouverymuch) but it gave a much broader picture of vampire hierarchy and the laws that govern them.

As a Hunter, Lilith is strong, fast and a cut above the men and women she works with at Section Seven.  Her attraction to Lincoln is immediate and incendiary.  Of course, Lilith feels the need to fight against this attraction because no self-respecting Hunter wants to know the touch of a Vampire.  Unraveling the prophecy surrounding Lincoln and the part she might play in it becomes even more complex when her own origins are brought to light.

Overall, I liked it.  I like seeing the world expand.  I like seeing new demons and new horrors.  I like knowing that even the impossible can become possible.
