“Overall, I liked it, but I would’ve liked more polished writing and characters.”
~ Under the Covers

It’s been a very long time since I have read anything by Alyssa Day, but I remember really enjoying her Paranormal Romance books in the past, so I thought that I would give this new series a shot. BANE’S CHOICE is book one in the Vampire Motorcycle Club. And obviously, the series title totally caught my attention. But I’m afraid that I may have had some high expectations because I was a little disappointed in this book.

It’s definitely not a terrible book by any means, but I did feel like there was a lot of info dumping in the beginning and also just a big mixture of different creatures. There’s mention of witches and warlocks and even necromancers. I guess I had the wrong idea that this would just be a vampire romance series. So if you’re going into this series thinking the same thing, there’s actually quite a lot of other paranormal creatures involved as well.

As for Day’s writing, I liked it. I kind of wished that it would be smoother just because the dialogue felt quite choppy to me. Bane didn’t completely win me over, but I think that’s also because of his roughness. It’s been a while since I’ve read a hero who just doesn’t seem to care. Overall, I liked it, but I would’ve liked more polished writing and characters. I will keep reading the series though and see what the next book will have in store for readers.

About alyssa day

Alyssa Day is the pen name (and dark and tortured alter ego) of RITA award-winning author Alesia Holliday. She is a multiple finalist in the prestigious RITA awards for excellence in romance fiction and has won several awards for her novels.

ATLANTIS RISING was the first of Alyssa's Warriors of Poseidon novels for Berkley Publishing, and was featured on the cover of the March, 2007, issue of Romantic Times BOOKClub magazine! Additionally, it rocked the bestseller lists, hitting the Waldenbooks, Borders, Barnes and Noble, Bookscan, and the prestigious USA Today bestseller lists! ATLANTIS AWAKENING came along several months together and did the same thing - only better!! And then her anthology SHIFTER, with authors Angela Knight, Lora Leigh, and Virginia Kantra, spent three weeks on the prestigious New York Times bestseller list!

Her publisher was thrilled, her family was thrilled (they could eat!), her dogs were thrilled (bacon!!). Now she's happily writing her fingers off, deep in the world of Atlantis, the Warriors of Poseidon, and a new exciting group of allies (??), the Fae.

Alyssa has long been an avid fan of all things Atlantis, supernatural, and in any way pertaining to lost civilizations. When she was six, she told her mother that she would discover Atlantis one day—and now she has!

In 2006, Alyssa (writing as Alesia) was awarded the Romance Writers of America’s RITA® award. The RITA is the highest award of excellence in the genre of romance fiction. If we can get this new website on track, you'll see a picture on your right of Alyssa with her agent and editor the night she won the RITA® award.

This was recommended to me but I’m not a fan of the MC storyline. I’m glad you liked it and hope it gets better.


I felt the same way about this book-I wanted to love it, but it was just okay.
