Ever since I read about Drago in Double Image, I've been waiting for his story. Dark, compelling, and so sexy - so what if he's a vampire? Actually, that's one of his facets that's so intriguing. How does a vampire get to his great age and still have motivation for 'living'? Drago nearly loses his, until he meets Marya, the aberration. Who would have guessed someone so repellant to vampires would be the one person he could love with all his heart (undead though it is)? Lush with the richness of vampire culture, heavy with the threat of dark enemies, and hot with the passion of love between two beings meant for each other, AfterImage is a book I want to read again...and again...and again.

Afterimage is an outstanding work of fiction. Ms. Roycraft creates an exciting and believable world populated by characters so well developed you'll swear they're real. The sensual and fascinating plot unfolds with perfect timing. Once you pick it up you won't want to put it down. Afterimage is a fantastic novel you'll want to read and re-read.

Review from jeannie zelos book reviews 
I’ve not read book one, but again as with several recently  its a series where characters or setting are connected, and each book stands complete.
I was attracted to this book because I love vampires fiction, and  I do like those romances where the protagonists start off disliking each other – in this case they Hate each other. Alek thinks Marya is an Aberration, something that all vampires hate and think should be killed. Marya, because of her personal history and the constraints the vampires have put on her personal live the last twelve years, thinks all vampires are evil and need to die. Strong stuff eh? It starts off well, and I always love that progression from hate to love, like to see just how and when things begin to turn, but somehow here though it made that change from hate to love, there wasn’t really (IMO) a turning point or reason for it, and sadly I wasn’t convinced of the relationship or connection between them. That of course affected my whole view of the romance and it just didn’t feel convincing for me.
The plot is decent, trying to track down who wants Alek killed, and why, and of course he’s no idea who he can really trust. There’s some interesting moments, and some drama when they’re captured and need to use their wits to get free. I didn’t guess who was behind the move to kill Alek, and much of the political machinations made it feel that it could be any one of a number of people. Had a good ending though – I need a HEA to a romance, but overall thought the book was good its purely a one off read for me. 
Stars: Three, a good read but for me not a keeper.

The story begins with the "it's all a big misunderstanding" trope, and I almost stopped reading, but am glad I didn't. It had a good ending, but it was lack luster through the middle. Even though the story is all "telling" verses showing us what happens, it turned out to have the bare bones for a good story of reluctant, forbidden love.

It lagged in spots, and Marya's (the heroine) persecution complex for "her people" got old quick especially since she'd not been anywhere near any of "her people" since she was a young child, with the exception of dating/hanging out with a young man for a little while. She also blamed the vampire enforcers for how she lived her life. She chose the life of a hermit instead of living as many do, making the most of every moment because they know death is coming for them. Ever heard the saying "live like you were dying"? Marya also did some really stupid things, but she was not alone. Drago did as well.

I very much like Alek/Drago (the hero), and Revelin Scott (a secondary character) is an interesting fellow. Nik, the head vampiress, is also an interesting lady. The author embellished the vampire mythos with her interesting additions.

The author did a good job of making this a standalone book within the series. I didn't realize it was book two until after I read it. I believe I'll check out book four Immortal Image to see more of Revelin Scott.

After warning him about his unorthodox behavior on cases, Nikolena assigns Alex "Drago" Dargovich the Enforcer with eliminating a threat to their vampire race. Drago is to determine whether half-breed Dhampir Marya Jaks, daughter of a vampire hunter, lives or dies. Marya being a Dhampir has the innate ability to locate bloodsuckers and if she could become a slayer of the undead, Drago must eliminate her. After meeting her, Drago grants her life.

Drago returns to Paris, but is shocked when Marya leaves a message on his voice mail that she will kill him. Apparently another vampire has persuaded Marya that Drago changed his mind about her. No longer willing to wait for Drago to carry out his revised sentencing, Marya plans to take action. However, Drago never changed his decision. Someone wants one of them permanently dead and if this duo fails to communicate that assailant will succeed.

Who needs Anne Rice when they you have AFTERIMAGE, the second novel in Jaye Roycraft's vampire tales (see DOUBLE IMAGE) is an exciting supernatural romance that provides a refreshing look at the undead. The story line is loaded with action and plenty of bite as the lead couple is wary and mistrustful yet falling in love with one another. Supernatural romance readers and vampire lovers will enjoy this novel and look joyfully forward to more fables set in the Roycraft universe. This is one novel that is perfect in every, something few books are.
