~ Love in the time of war ~
In a future world shattered by the invasion of beast-like demons, humans are fighting back as well as they can, using ancient weapons along with magic to defend their cities. Next to them, vampires are fighting too – some for the thrill of it, others to hold on to age-old Pacts, which demand that they protect humans.
When Kate’s squad of fighters meets vampires Marc and Blake, she is torn. Her squad could use their help, but the two men are distracting her from her duty. Night after night, they search together for the breach between realities that allows the demons’ invasion. They search, also, for the equilibrium that will allow Blake to forgive his Sire, Marc to accept Blake as he is – and Kate to admit she is attracted to both of them.
Can they find that delicate balance before the demons destroy the squad?

Blurred Nights review
The first book in the Blurred Trilogy and part of The Demon Age series is set in the future after a demon apocalypse and is full of suspense, action, vampires, demons and romance.
I found myself intrigued with this book right from the beginning. It starts off with a battle and the action continues throughout. The author has created a post apocalyptic fantasy world with a unique twist and very engaging characters.
The heroes, Marc and Blake, and the heroine, Kate, find themselves fighting on the same side against the demons set on destroying the world. The emotional drama the characters find themselves in draws the reader into the story as Marc and Blake join Kate’s military group to try to close the demon rip, and find themselves attracted to Kate. They each try to get her attention as they deal with their own personal issues with each other. Kate is equally attracted to them both, but doesn’t know what to think or do about that, besides she is on a mission and doesn’t need the complication.
The reader’s attention is also captured by the depth the supporting characters add to this drama filled story. The well written battle scenes come to life in this intriguing tale and you can feel the chemistry building between the three main characters. The sex in the story is very hot and leaves the reader wanting more.
The author leaves us with not only a war cliff hanger, but a romantic cliff hanger as well, but she left us a great spot in the story. This was a fantastic story and I will be reading more of the books in this series.
A Kallysten Must Read!
Rating: 4 1/2 stars
I was provided a copy of this book from the author for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review - all conclusions are my own responsibility.
What makes Kallysten's stories so good is it's not all about the sex. She develops the story first and the romance between characters is just icing on the cake. We have vampires and humans fighting against demons. It's a story you can finish in just a couple of hours and because it's so short you will find it difficult to put down. The action and suspense are what will hold your attention right up until the end where you'll be left wanting to read more. And you'll be happy to note that the second and third books titled Blurred Bloodlines and Blurred Memories are also currently available.
Blurred Trilogy, part of the Demon Age
Wonderful book. All of Kallysten's work that I have read as of yet as been wonderful.
This one took me a bit to jump in, and get the bearing and surroundings for some reason. I had a cold for a bit, so maybe it was just that.
Marc and Blake are vampires. Marc being the Master and Blake being his Childe. The setting is in the future when Pacts are no longer formed or mean much of anything. (Pacts are where vampires keep humans safe and in exchange they give vampires blood.)(To learn more about Pacts see Kallysten's series titled The Pact) Vampires used to keep humans safe from the demons that roam the earth. There seem to be more and more demons roaming, this is caused by rips in the reality. Marc and Blake are looking for the rip when they come across some human fighters who are in need of assistance. Of course humans nowadays aren't as trusting and fear that these 2 vampires might be working with the demons. so it takes some time before a little bit of trust is formed.
Amongst the group of fighters is Kate, who both Marc and Blake find attractive and desire. Kate is slow to realize it, but she too has an attraction to not just one of them but both of them. Although there is ground work set for more with these 3, there isn't much in this book. (can't wait for the next one and the one after that, as it will be about these three, but back to this one first.) They fight together and the start to trust one another, and slowly build more of a foundation.
The vampires and the humans main goal becomes to find the rip and get it sealed, so they move on to a new town and start once more. Slowly making earth a safe place once again. There is hurt, and some betrayal, and enough lust to make you want more. Once the story gets going, its hard to put down, it just seems to fly by and before you know it its over and your wanting the next book so you can continue on with their journey and see what more is to come.
