Book 4 in The Gardella Vampire Chronicles
Signet Eclipse, mm pb, 346 p.
Ruining Victoria’s homecoming, a vampire stalks the streets of London – during the daylight. Not only is Victoria unable to detect the vampire with her heightened senses, but she’s being framed as the prime suspect behind the killings.This made for fun reading on the bullet train on our way to visit the in-laws and it was the perfect kind of book to get lost in to forget the heat!. Even after we arrived I kept sneaking a few more pages whenever I could and finished it up the next day!
Meanwhile, her heart is still divided between the enigmatic Sebastian Vioget and her fellow slayer Max Pesaro. The battle is made even more difficult by the legacy of a vampire’s touch – a vampire who left in Victoria’s veins boiling blood that forces her to fight evil on two fronts: against the new breed of undead threatening London and against the darkness within herself.
It continues the story where the previous book left off and was another fun, exciting adventure into the world of the undead, vampire slayers, petticoats and romance. I don’t want to spoil anything so I’ll just say I was glad a certain something happened that had been building up for awhile but I still feel a bit sad for a certain other someone. But it was great to revisit these characters and I can’t wait to read the fifth book when it comes out early next year!
My Rating: 4/5
