Orion's Way, by DC Juris
Orion is a vampire with a tragic past. After running away from abusive parents at the tender age of sixteen, he was turned by a ruthless elder vampire and forced to torture and sexually abuse human feeders and submissive vampires. Though that's all behind him now, he still lives in the shadow of what he was, and it has cost him the loyalty of Xavier, the human feeder he loves. Malagan is Orion's closest friend—the vampire who saved him from brutality all those years ago. Malagan knows the dominant side of Orion—the side Xavier needs—is still there, lurking below the surface. But if Orion's going to find his way back to who he ought to be, he'll need help. And Malagan is just the man for the job.

Orion's Way is about the vampire Orion trying to get over past hurts without repeating mistakes. He loses his feeder because he can't give him what he needs. Orion's coven leader, Malagan, steps in to help. In the end, with Malagan's continued guidance, Orion is able to take steps towards being able to over come his issues.
I enjoyed this book. DC Juris' vampires are hauntingly believable. Orion's scarred past showed through the pages. I could feel his pain and unsureness. Malagan was a good leader and helped him in ways only a true friend and leader could. The story wrapped with a nice happy for now ending.
