Lords of Light by Steven Spruill

First sentence:

"I have done all I can to make sure no one but me will ever read this diary."


"At twenty-five, Dr. Jenn Hrulska is a promising resident in neurology. Her beauty and warmth draw people to her, and yet she chooses to be alone - for her white doctor's coat hides a vampire's body. Jenn is a hemophage: she must feed on blood, or she will die. She has managed to defy her genetic compulsion to kill and a millennium of lonely life stretches ahead of her.

Then a charismatic young doctor named Michael Avalon steps into her life. Helpless to resist her powerful and growing feelings for him, Jenn tries to convince herself she could survive when, inevitably, she loses him. But when Michael reveals an astonishing truth about himself, he gives Jenn the greatest hope of her life, and draws her into a war between two families - the rulers of darkness and the lords of light - which threatens the extinction of her kind . . ." - from the back cover

My thoughts:

I enjoyed this book featuring hemophages (vampires) and angels. I especially liked the interactions between the angel Michael and the hemophage Jenn and between the angel Uziel and the hemophage Chemosh.
