Editorial Reviews


“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 . . .

More About the Author

Pamela Palmer is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than a dozen paranormal romance and urban fantasy novels including both the Vamp City and Feral Warriors series. When Pamela's initial career goal of captaining starships failed to pan out, she turned to engineering, satisfying her desire for adventure with books and daydreams until finally succumbing to the need to create worlds of her own. Pamela lives and writes in the suburbs of Washington, D.C.

Customer Reviews

This book is more urban fiction than it is vampire romance.
L. Jonsson
It seemed like much of the book was Quinn bumbling around and accomplishing very little.
Mistress of The Dark Path
They were just things I'd rather not feel when I'm reading a book.

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.

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.

I love Pamela Palmer's books and I have been looking forward to this book. At first it looked good and went smoothly, then things went down hill. Don't get me wrong, dark themes are okay in romances and add spice to them, however thing just kept getting worse and worse. It's about a girl, Quinn and her brother who live D.C. Quinn can see 'shimmers' that do strange things like cause her clothing to change color. One day, the brother's best friend goes missing and this is when they fall though a glitch between the D.C and V.C (vampire city). When Quinn arrives in V.C. she becomes a slave for a vampire that feeds off of fear. Twists and turns happen and get darker as Quinn escapes from V.C but goes back to rescue her brother that was also taken as a slave by the vampires and finds herself in slaver's hands. The main love interest, Arturo, finds her again and buys her but not before she witnesses brutal rapes and death that the hands of other pain and fear feeding vampires. Arturo, who I cant figure out if he is good or not, betrays her and takes her to his master, a pain feeder, saying she is a sorceress.

This is where I finally said enough is enough. The two had walked in on a human girl being raped and fed upon while being burned so that the pain feeders could feed. This set the scene for the next chapter where she must attend a vampire party thing where a girl is tied down with barbed wire on her wrists, more around her neck and Arturo's master, the pain feeding king vamp, is putting more barbed wire on his member so that his rape can be even more painful.

Why non of the other people mentioned this in their review is beyond me. Maybe some people don't know what barbed wire is or Amazon doesn't want this sort of stuff mentioned?
