|Plot Summary of Laws of the Blood: Heroes|
Ace, Oct 2003, 6.50, 288 pp.
The Council makes the laws that govern vampire security and the Enforcers make sure that all Strigori follow the rules. All Enforcers come from the Nighthawk line of changed vampires, but many other vampires feel that these are no longer of their species and must be destroyed.
Martina, a vampire who works at Vegas' Six Road Hotel and Casino, wants to see the Nighthawk line die out and she will use any means at her disposal to see that is happens. Nighthawk Enforcers Char McCairn, and her human lover Jebel Haven arrive in Las Vegas to attend the wedding of a former vampire companion to a mortal. Reclusive Nighthawk Valentine and potential Enforcer Geoff Sterling arrive in Las Vegas to check out their investment. All four of these people get caught up in the rogue vampire's scheme and know that if they survive each one will come away from the encounter changed in ways they can not imagine.
