Review by wyvernfriend
She's a bodyguard, trained and ruthless, she works for the sadistic Sergi Yakut who uses her and abuses her. She has the ability to use her mind to stun people, particularly vampires, an ability that's saved her more than once.He's Nikolai, a ruthless warrior, a man who is atoning for earlier misdeeds, a man who believes in the mission. His mission is becoming derailed by Renata.Add in the young Mira whose eyes reflect people's future and who is treated as a commodity or gaming piece and you have a fairly good cast. And it works fairly well until the end when it seems that misunderstanding and bitterness can be sorted in minutes. I'm looking forward to see what happens with the vampire from Berlin. I also have to wonder if the author saw an antidote to minionising, it seems to be a powerful thing that really the good guys can't do anything about.An interesting story, even if it was wrapped up a little pat at the end.
