Eternal Beast is the fourth book in the Mark of the Vampire series by Laura Wright.
Ever since his abduction by the Eternal Order of Vampires, Gray Donohue has finally found his true calling: vengeance. He will stop at nothing to bring his fellow Impure vampires the freedom they deserve. Now if he could just release his primal need for the beautiful vampire who saved his life-and rules his thoughts and desires . . .
After nearly killing the senator she was assigned to protect, Dillon is now in mortal danger. The jaguar within her has been unleashed, and she can no longer control it. Sex is the only thing that can tame her shift. And Gray is the only man who can make her surrender to a passion strong enough to overpower her inner beast.
But she doesn't want to surrender-she wants her life back. Because she is determined never to belong to anyone, especially not Gray-the man who destiny claims is her mate.
Dillon has survived a past that is unthinkable - even to the most hardened vampire. A vampire herself, Dillon holds a secret that should have been the end of her at birth - she is a Mutore, a shifter. Looked down upon by the Eternal Order of Vampires, Dillon is considered an abomination - a status that will mean her immediate death should the Order find out she exists.
And they have found out.
Gray Donohue spent years trapped inside his own mind - relieving the horrible fire he survived as a child. With the help of his sisters vampire mate, Gray was finally able to overcome those memories - and because he is an Impure vampire, he gained the ability to hear the thoughts of others.
Everyone except Dillon. The one woman who's thoughts he is desperate to hear.
Now Gray is on a mission. He wants - he needs - to bring down the Order. And he will do everything in his considerable power to see that done.
I enjoy this series very much and look forward to the next installment. I give Eternal Beast 4 out of 5 stars.
