 "Author Jerry Knaak cracks the verbal whip with new vampire Elizabeth (“Don’t call me Beth”) Rubis, as she desperately seeks to track down her narcissistic mentor, who is hiding and preying on others on the mean streets of San Francisco. The fast-paced action and dialogue sparkle as Elizabeth is forced to discover THE DARK TRUTH of what she has become and what might be hidden inside her. Her frantic quest to find out what she is capable of is both helped and complicated by contradictory cravings and a shaken sense of what is now right or wrong for her. To help and hinder her search, she is torn between new and old loyalties, extraordinary sensual powers, superhuman strength, ruthlessness, cunning, and wicked cravings that can both horrify and appease her temporary needs as she seeks her own answers."

The Dark Terror, Jerry Knaak

March 5, 2019

" . . . Knaak has created such a fantastic world in The Dark Passage series filled with vampire lore, comedy, suspense, and a hint of romance. So it's a perfect little package that hits a lot of genres. Elizabeth is a superb main character because she's strong and makes for a natural leader. Watching her grow over the series, she never disappoints. I'm still leery of Andrei and I can't wait to find out what Elizabeth has in store for him. And of course, Knaak left us in an intense spot, so I'm going to need the next book asap. . . . "
