About the Author

Jeri Smith-Ready has been writing fiction since the night she had her first double espresso. A steady stream of caffeine has resulted in twelve published novels for teens and adults, including RT Reviewers Choice-winning fantasy EYES OF CROW; as well as the PRISM award-winning WICKED GAME and SHADE. Her most recent release is the YA contemporary novel THIS SIDE OF SALVATION, which Booklist called a "smart, unpredictable, and well-rounded tale" in its starred review.
 
Jeri lives in the rolling hills of Maryland with her husband and two cats, who often play tag-team "sit in the author's lap and keep her from writing." (The cats, that is, not the husband. Though actually...) When not writing, she's either out running or on Twitter.

My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)

I’m okay now.

Just so you know.

I mean, just so I know.

Not that I wonder.

I am not one for putting spoilers in my reviews. But what to do when a book is almost one giant spoiler? This was one of hardest reviews I've written. I loved the book and want to tell you why...but how to tell you that without ruining anything. Hmmmm......So here's my attempt at a non spoilery - yet interesting book review.

Bring on the Night is about Faith.

Ciara's lack of it.

Shane's complete, blind belief in it.

How many pieces of your soul will you sell to protect those you love?

And oh yeah - there are zombies!

Bring on the Night reminded me of a three act play.

Act 1: The set up to the story. Things are better than they have ever been.
Act 2: Then they are not.
Act 3: The aftermath.

Ciara's finally finishing up her college degree and has just completed her training with "The Control" - a secret government agency whose mission is "to balance the safety and well-being of humans AND vampires." Yeah right. They aren't named The Control for nothing....they blackmailed her into service and they are exerting an ever increasing amount of control over Ciara & Shane's lives.
Despite the Control looming over them, Ciara and Shane have never been happier - they're living together, she's helping to plan best friend Lori and David's wedding. That is until dead bodies start popping up. They have reason to suspect it may be one their own. Jim, one of the vampires that works as a DJ at the WVMP radio station has been acting more and more reckless.
But what they uncover is something much more sinister. A plague is spreading, the dead are rising and the events that unfold change their lives forever.
The tone is very different for Bring on the Night than in the previous two books in the series.

The first thing that put me off the series was the passing of time between book 2 and 3. As another reader said, they thought they'd missed a book since so much time had passed. I quite agree.

The continued unresolved sexual tension between David and Ciara is tiresome. I think it's been drawn out too long. I felt that Ciara's time at Control was too short and I would have liked to have seen more of her training. To jump into the world 2.5 years after book 2 and right into her training and then right back out of training within a chapter is disorienting.

Again, with the passing of time it was a way for the author to write what she thought should happen with the characters and make it seem realistic/plausible. It seems that it was expected that weddings, school, training, etc should happen and they really didn't add anything to the story at all. It was all this hype to push the story forward in time and it was a waste.

I believe this book was longer than the first two in words but it had no more actual content.

That said, the mysterious and fatal virus was an interesting take. It worked in the story but it was a stretch at times. The new characters we met were stereotypical and too obvious for my tastes.

This book was my least favorite of the series (so far). I still like the author and hope that future books have the kinks worked out. I just felt this book was a bit of a flop.

Ciara Griffin is an ex-con artist, but now she is spending her time differently. Trying to finish up her bachelors degree, enjoying living with her vampire/DJ boyfriend Shane McAllister and their vampire dog Dexter, and training for the paranormal paramilitary agency, the Control. Life is busy for Ciara and it is about to get crazy on top of that. A strange and fatal virus starts spreading all over her city of Sherwood leaving no human safe, and someone is causing corpses to rise from their graves leaving no one, not even vampires safe.

This is probably one of the hardest book reviews I have had to write in a really long time. I have literally sat here staring at my monitor for an hour and just thinking about what I just read. The problem is, the teeniest of details could totally spoil the whole book for readers. My goal here is to tell you how wonderful this book is without spoiling you, and convincing you to run out and buy it right now! How about I just tell you, RUN OUT AND BUY THIS NOW! Did it work? Hm, fine, here is my review.

Bring on the Night is the third installment in the WVMP Vampires series. The absolutely best part about these books are the characters. Jeri Smith-Ready writes them in a realistic way making their personalities shine through, and as a reader you get to know all their quirks and what makes them special. They feel like friends and you end up caring about what happens to each one of them. In Bring on the Night readers get to see a deeper side of the DJs and gain a better understanding of what they go through daily.

One of the most important parts, for me, was that the characters have to dive in and face their fears. The fear of losing someone, whether it be to death or from growing apart.

As I'm working my way through this series, I have to say that I'm really liking it a lot more. I found myself more interested and engrossed with Bring on the Night as I kept reading it. Maybe it was because the characters were more established or that the plot is pretty unique and entertaining, but this one definitely held my attention a lot longer than the first two did. I think it was because this book takes place a few years after the last one left off, a lot of things have changed and I think it was the confusion of not knowing and the shock of learning what has happened since then that got me engrossed in this one. Jeri continues to amaze me with her ability to create a fun and riveting story with equally intriguing characters. One thing I'm learning is that I can never know what to really expect from each book in this series. After reading the synopsis, I usually have a good picture in my head of how things will turn out, but Jeri flips it in a whole other direction and I really love how she surprises me.

Ciara is one character I am really growing to love. I always liked her from the beginning, but her life was still very much superficial in the previous books. Here, you see a whole other side to her, for obvious reasons you'll see once you read the book, and I loved learning more about her character and seeing how she handles her situation with Shane and the growing threats that surround her life. She faces some pretty tough decisions in this book and a lot of things change, but I think Jeri handled it in a great way. I'm also really starting to like Shane more. You can see how much he really cares for Ciara and the lengths he'll go to in order to make her happy and keep her safe, and vice versa.
