Great start to what looks to be an exciting new series. Futuristic space travel, vampires, genetically enhanced humans, religious fanatics, hybrid humans, and an overpowered overbearing ruling society. I loved the mix characters. Rico has been around for close to sixteen hundred years, can’t really say he’s lived that long he’s a vampire. His long life has taught him to never get bored. To keep himself entertained he enjoys the company of a variety of different women and accepts high risk jobs. Both have walked onto his ship with a proposition for a new job. Skylar is working undercover for her employer. She needs this job to be successful. A big promotion is waiting for her in the end. She knows she can handle the job. The sexy vampire is her main concern.
I love genre mix of this book. This book has romance, sci fi, vampires, and plenty of action. The Crew of the Cazador has an incredible bond, they are really a tight knit group. As far as I’m concerned Rico is a new breed of vampire, he’s playful and fun. I loved his hobby of Earth sayings and his collection of Earth baubles. It humanized him as a character. He is such an easily likable character. Skylar as an undercover operative the readers know she is hiding something. When it all comes out the crews reactions are great. The whole reason behind her assignment is a shocker. The romance between Skylar and Rico progresses at a good pace. There is plenty of sexual tension. I found her evasive techniques interesting. I enjoyed this book and look forward to more in this series.
