I figure if you're going to rewrite history you might as well go big and Walker does in this ending to the Cronin's Key trilogy. Alec is burdened with all the gifts of the vampire world and its taxing, to say the least. There's one more big, bad guy out there before anyone can settle into the "forever". We learn that these are loving vampire world here your fated one is yours for all time. There was a lot going on and the story meandered a bit but it was a good ending for this Scooby Gang.
