Twilight Prophecy by Maggie Shayne
Title: Twilight Prophecy
SubTitle: Wings in the Night series
Imprint: MIRA Books
Pub Date: 04/26/2011
Author: Maggie Shayne
According to ancient prophecy, there's only one chance to avert the complete annihilation of the Undead. Twins James William and Brigit Poe, part human, part vampire, believe that they are that chance. In truth, the key lies with the reclusive—and mortal—scholar Lucy Lanfair.
As Armageddon approaches, antivampire sentiment fuels a war neither side can win, driving James to abandon his moral code and draw Lucy into a deadly battle she wants no part of.
But Lucy soon realizes that she holds this powerful immortal's soul in her hands and that it's her destiny not only to stop a war but to save him from his inner darkness. If she fails, his race will die—and so will her heart. Is the power of love strong enough to save the world?
I have not read other books in this series but I have no problem reading Twilight Prophecy as a stand alone story. The whole story is full of actions, drama and mystery, with lots of twists and turns to make me just want to keep on reading. It has some romance too between James and Lucy but I found the romance element is not very strong in the story. Lucy was not attracted to James at the beginning because he is an vampire. They were also have no time for romance as they kept on running since the beginning of the story. James was a vampire different from the rest as he had the ability to heal. While his twin sister, Brigit was a destroyer. It was their destiny to save their race. But Lucy was being dragged into their mission due to her ability to able to read the tablets from the Sumerian area. Those tablets were about the prophecy. The romance between James and Lucy get tension towards the end. The ending was a little unexpected but that's how it make it more exciting and get ready for the next book in the series.
I enjoy reading it very much. And I'm looking forward for her next book in this series. I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars.
