Daphne Urban is a member of a national security agency known as Team Darkwing. A team made up of four agents who all share a common trait, they’re vampires. Daphne and her team are assigned to put a stop to the manufactures behind a new drug known as susto that is leaving a trial of death in its wake. Not only must Daphne combat threats against national security but she must deal with her feelings for two men, a situation that leaves her a bit distracted. On one hand she has St. Julien “Fitz” Fitzmaurice, who she feels an attraction for and who Daphne believes to be as good as he seems but who she must get close to for ulterior purposes because he may have ties to the drug Daphne is after. On the other hand Daphne is still very much in love with Darius della Chiesa her ex-boyfriend who she had to convert into a vampire in order to save his life, a fact that’s caused him pain since he used to slay the very creature he has become.

Past Redemption is a fantastic continuation of this wonderful series. I love that Daphne is both strong and vulnerable; she is an awesome heroine that knows what she wants and is wiling to do what she must to get it. Fitz is shrouded in mystery but is appealing none the less and Darius's tortured soul will stir in any woman the desire to want to heal his pain, this will make it hard for readers to choose which guy they want Daphne to end up with. Savannah Russe has brought to life an enthralling world filled with characters that readers will want to not only learn more about but will want to watch grow and find their way to happiness. I am fast becoming an avid fan of this series and will look forward to reading more of The Darkwing Chronicles.
