Toby Heaton awakens to find he is in the clutches of De Valis’ enemy. This enemy has waited hundreds of years to extract his petty revenge on De. To make matters worst, Toby learns that there is an informant at De’s night club, aiding the adversary.

A Feast of Choice is the second book in the Feasts of Fortune series. The well written plot illustrates incredibly sensual lovemaking, rejection, jealousy and heartbreak. In this episode, Toby is forced to be a pawn used to emotionally destroy De. Toby has a reasonable incentive to follow the perpetrator’s demands. However, he shows a lack of trust in the parties directly involved to rectify the dilemma he finds himself in. Toby is ruled by his fear, as well as his misplaced sentiment. Although Toby claims to love De, he still deceives him. Now he must live with the consequences of his betrayal. Toby ignites my irritation with his spineless behavior.

De is courteous, in addition to being particularly compassionate. De loves Toby for the man he is and not because he is a chrysalis child with the power to benefit a vampire. A Feast of Choice is a romantic cliffhanger interwoven with mystery. I look forward to the next installment to see if Toby finds the courage to redeem his self-respect, as well as what measures De will direct towards his enemies. Kate Steele has created a marvelous saga that I absolutely enjoyed.
