A highly original supernatural thriller blending magic, science, martial arts, and the greatest desire of all: to live forever

Mia Lockheart has a secret. Her mother was a Keeper, as was her grandmother?women who were warriors, healers, and protectors. As Mia practices her craft among the boxers and martial artists of South London, and begins a romance with her childhood friend, the fighter Nick Duffy, she has no idea that a man who calls himself ?Dragonfly? is watching from the shadows.

Adrian Ashton is a brilliant scientist, an expert in the breaking field of biophoton emissions from cells within the human body. He is also a skilled martial artist?and a modern-day vampire. With the aid of the enigmatic Book of Life and Death, written in the thirteenth century by the legendary Chinese physician Zhang Sanfeng, he preys on other martial artists and drains them of their chi?the vital energy that flows through the body.

Mia finds herself drawn to his dark genius, but when he targets Nick as his next victim, she is forced to choose between the two men. It becomes a fight to the death in which love is both the greatest weakness and the biggest prize.

I really liked the complexity of Mia Lockhart. It's been awhile, that I have read a book that actually allowed a female character to be such a vibrant, independent figure.

Likes: The triangle was actually a triangle based with some depth in it. She actually is apprehensive about the stunning new guy coming into her life.

Dislikes: mid-way through the book you already know who Dragonfly is. I wanted to know more about being a Keeper, I felt that wasn't fleshed out enough or thoroughly explained exactly the role being a keeper has played in Mia's life. All you know it's like being a den mother, who uses chi and protects her fighters.

The story is well-written. You get to learn/helps you delve a little deeper into the martial arts of the book. Mostert doesn't leave you to figure it out, thus making you feel like a moron for not being apart of her word. she brings you in and makes you feel as if you are one with her characters.
