This jumps a few years in the future and all is going well. The southern vampires are strong under David and Miranda's leadership. They are hosting the next council get together which offers challenges. Miranda's music career is flying. Then OMG! Crap crap crap... Another cliffhanger. This is turning into the series I love to hate. Great story, great characters, new guests appear, challenges, David and Miranda are great together, Deven and Jonathan too. Then you wonder who's scheming, what are they up to, who's behind to all. What's Deven up to again, then BAM! This is going to be another LONNNNGGGGG wait, but I will faithfully do it as the Shadow World addict that I am.
