“TALL, DARK AND VAMPIRE has rekindled my appetite for all things fangy and paranormal.” ~Under the Covers
I am so excited I’ve finally read a Sara Humphreys book! My OCD tells me that I’m cheating because I read book 1 in a spin off series. I may still be twitching about that, but I’ll get over it.
After being on what felt like a paranormal fast, TALL, DARK AND VAMPIRE has rekindled my appetite for all things fangy and paranormal.
First of all, I’m a fan of the night club setting for books. Charlaine Harris gave us Fangtasia, Ellen Schreiber wrote about The Coffin Club and J.R. Ward created Zero Sum. I love the paranormal clubs. A bit goth and full of lurking supernaturals. Now we get “The Coven” a hip NYC club run by vampires, and kickass chicks at that.
As I said before, this book ties in with Ms. Humphreys “Amoveo Legend” books but it gives a glimpse of a different side of her supernatural world. Dead in the City is not about her shifters but more about vampires. Olivia is the club owner and also the ruler of the coven. She’s been celibate since she was turned because she lost her human love that same night. She’s also been taking in strays (making vampires of people who needed rescuing). And throughout all these centuries, she’s never forgotten her human love. However she has created some powerful enemies along the way.
I’m a sucker for second chance romances and Olivia does get a second chance to be with the only man she’s ever loved. Doug may be human now but he’s had dreams about Olivia in vivid detail since he can remember. Now that he finally finds her, it’s in the middle of a murder investigation he’s leading which seems to center around her and her club. But the inevitable attraction and pull they have towards one another are greater than any risk and any danger there could be in them being together. Sizzling chemistry!
Vampire politics, big bad councils, love and betrayal. TALL, DARK and VAMPIRE packs a punch of smexy and mystery that will leave you hooked for more. Definitely an enjoyable read which will make me rectify the fact that I haven’t read this author’s work before, sooner rather than later.
