Editorial Reviews

Review

“Pamela Palmer’s stories catch you, captivate you, and never let you go.” (Christina Dodd, NYT Bestseller)

“An amazing, action-packed series! I’m as hungry as a Vamp for the next book!” (Kerrelyn Sparks)

From the Back Cover

Quinn Lennox is searching for a missing friend when she stumbles into a dark otherworld that only she can see—and finds herself at the mercy of Arturo Mazza, a dangerously handsome vampire whose wicked kiss will save her, enslave her, bewitch her, and betray her. What Arturo can't do is forget about her—any more than Quinn can control her own feelings for him. Neither one can let desire get in the way of their mission—his to save his people, hers to save herself. But there is no escape from desire in a city built for seduction, where passion flows hot and blood-red . . .

Format: Mass Market Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Let me start by stating this should not be marketed as a romance novel. It is definitely UF. The book is raw (in a good way). If you like your vamps to be sparkly, or just to have some sort of moral compass, this is not the book for you. The vamps in this book are primal. Feral, even. They live to feed, and their whole world is designed around their food supply, and making sure they have one. The thing is, they don't only feed off of blood. Some of the vamps in Ms. Palmer's world also require the pain and terror of others to live.

The world building is absolutely superb. Ms. Palmer starts with very well-known D.C landmarks before dragging us over to the alternate world, V.C., so everything is easy to picture in your mind. The utter, unrelenting brutalitity of V.C. is never in question. It is survival of the fittest, the food chain is well evident, and humans are at the bottom.

Very Brief Synopsis - Quinn has talents of the magical variety that are manifesting themselves more and more frequently. As people are disappearing from D.C. at a rapid rate, Lily, a friend of Quinn's brother, goes missing. Quinn and Zack, her brother, go to search for Lily shortly after she disappears. They find Lily's pen, Zack reaches for it, and Quinn grabs his arm. They find themselves pulled through a sunbeam into the alternate world of Vamp City, which is layered upon Washington, D.C. Quinn and Zack become separated, and Quinn is desperate to locate her brother. She is being held by Arturo, a vamp who is completely out for himself and his own interests.

Quinn - So torn about Quinn. She is fearlessly brave when it comes to rescuing her brother, but also puts herself in harm's way an awful, awful lot.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Wow. I wanted to like this book a lot. It has excellent world building with some unique things to keep it very fresh in the vampire romance offerings. And it had a recommendation from Christina Dodd who is a fave author of mine.

Quinn Lennox knows something is wrong from the beginning but it isn't until she has to save her brother (and his girlfriend) that she really understands what the wrong is.

Arturo Mazz is a vampire with a lot of secrets. He doesn't share many, if any, of those with Quinn other than the fact that he really really really wants to have sex with her.

Oh yeah. He also feeds off fear more than blood. This was an intriguing twist (if not fresh, the way Palmer handles it was for me), but here's where I had my first "ewwwww" for this book.

He feeds off her fear. He intentionally scares her--not just once either. Then he tells her she can't be scared of him because sex won't be good for him.

WTH? Add to this the continued lying and this is a relationship that I would never want to be in nor would I want any of my friends to be in it. Arturo is truly the snake he is nicknamed. I found him to be slithery and not likeable. And I actually like snakes. Just not this one.

It ends with a strong hook and the revelation of more lies. Even with the strong worldbuilding and the really intriguing Vampire City concept, I just could not get past his character flaws. Even when I thought I might, then he does her a huge favor and asks her how grateful she is.

And they have sex. Ew. Ick. Ew. This book unfortunately triggered all sorts of personal buttons for me. Because it is well-written and I truly admired the world-building, I'm going for three stars. Without those? I would be hard pressed to offer even 2.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I should tell you this right off the bat: I found this book disturbing. I did not like the hero. I did not want him to end up with the heroine. I did not like the world in which it was set. And I almost did not finish it. The writing was good. The author definitely drew me in and made me feel things. They were just things I'd rather not feel when I'm reading a book.

The heroine is Quinn. For a while now, she has been plagued with visions of a shimmer in the atmosphere and glimpses of a dark world that mirrors her own. Through a series of events, she and her brother Zack are pulled into that alternate world and what they find there is horrifying. It's a city designed to be a vampire haven. The vamps run the show, keeping humans as slaves. Quinn and Zack are separated almost immediately and Quinn spends the rest of the book fixated on how she will rescue her brother.

The vampire who captures Quinn is Arturo. His vampire species feeds on emotion as well as blood. Arturo's delicacy is fear, though others feed on pain or other emotions. Right away, Arturo realizes there is something different about Quinn. She is immune to his mind control, which makes her interesting. We learn Arturo is planning to make her into one of his blood and sex slaves, using her once every four days to slake his desires. Obviously, Quinn's not on board with the plan --and frankly, this was point I started to worry about whether I could get behind Arturo as a hero. (After all, he'll be using his other slaves for the same purposes on the other days of the week.)

There are times he is less of a turn-off than others. That is to say, he is sexy and seductive and he doesn't seek to hurt his slaves. But if that's the best thing you can say about your hero, there's a problem.
