“Mad, bad and dangerous to know.”
Olivia Parr doesn’t believe her ability to see auras is a gift. It hasn’t exactly done her any favours. Quite the opposite, in fact. Having become something of a loner, she tries to avoid people and the glow surrounding them, preferring to view life through the lens of a camera, where she can’t see those telltale colours.
But when a rare visit to a theatre ends in death and bloodshed, Olivia’s life is about to become considerably more complicated.
During the mayhem, one man stands out, and not just because he seems oblivious to the terrible carnage. The reason? He has no aura.
But everyone has an aura, right?
Except for the dead.
Not only is she fascinated and intrigued by this strange, compelling man, in the aftermath of the tragedy she gains a protector; a man whose aura is deep, dark red – the colour of blood.

from the Prologue of this book I was intrigued. It was an eye-opening start. Following that, the first chapter was EPIC, it was so emotional, there was so much happening where characters were introduced and as I read it I wondered how the rest of the book could possibly live up to that first chapter. I am very happy to say that I wasn't let down. The following chapters kept me captivated and I couldn't read the book quickly enough to see how it would end. (Dragonrose Books Galore Reviews)

Davies takes this paranormal story back to old school vampire tales. It’s a paranormal urban fantasy – a sizzling and steamy supernatural tale. It’s very much in the flair of old legends and tropes of the supernatural. Where glamour is still used to enable romantic encounters and allow long toothed predators to nibble on their prey.
