Lev Baronovsky, a soulless creature of the night, has a problem. Carly, the love of his life has just died in an accident and in three days will pass to the other side. Without a soul, he cannot cross over with her and the thought of spending eternity without his beloved is unbearable. Is seventy-two hours enough time to find a way?
With the help of his brother, Alexei, they must face the vilest creature of all, Boris, an ancient one with selfish motivations of his own.
There was a nicely woven pattern that merged both the beautiful vampires and the ugly. Some defy the stereotypes.
The author created Alexei quickly in such a short amount of time. He was probably the most well rounded though he isn't the main character. I think I enjoyed his personality best because it wasn't contradictory but still rich and interesting.
The primary focus is, of course, a love story and the separation of death. It didn't feel too short, nor was the pace slow. I think for a quick read, this one hit a lot of marks.
