Book Description

From USA Today and New York Times Bestelling author, C.J. Ellisson:

Jonathan Winchester has clashed with his alpha one too many times. After another argument he leaves the Manitoba pack, his only home since the werewolf attack that changed his life. He returns to his home state of Virginia to start a new life free of pack politics. Jon finds work and meets a young waitress, Raine, who appears to be a lone werewolf, too.

As their relationship progresses, Jon’s embroiled in more intrigue than he bargained for and a danger bigger than he can handle. He's running scared until his own alpha tendencies surface, making him unable to leave the pretty werewolf’s problems behind. The young man is desperate to save Raine—even if his efforts may lead him straight to death.

Journey along in this first prequel novel involving the favorite characters from the bestselling V V Inn series. Written at reader demand, this stand-alone story explains how the beloved Jonathan came to serve the deadly redheaded vampire, Dria.

A long time ago, in a land far away from the frozen north, a young werewolf found himself on a journey fleeing the pack that took him in and sheltered him as he learned about his transformation from ordinary mortal to alpha werewolf. This is the story about one of the favorite characters of the Vampire Vacation series. Vivian's servant, Jon and how he came to be a part of Dria and Rafe's life.

After leaving Romeo's pack Jon met a beauty and fell head over heels in love. But treachery lurked, and Raine's own trials and tribulations with her own pack pulled Jon into a situation where his youth and his budding alpha didn't know what to do. He couldn't go back to his old pack. He'd burned those bridges. He had to find someone that could help Raine and her pack.

C. J. Ellisson has woven a story that answers the questions that I've wondered about. How did a young southern werewolf end up being a servant to a vivacious, death dealing vampire that owns a resort in Alaska? What could a very happily married vampire do to earn an alpha werewolf's supreme loyalty?

I honestly couldn't put the book down. Death's Servant was a quick read that works well as a stand-alone book. If you haven't read Vampire Vacation, The Hunt, or The Big Game I'll bet you'll want to pick them up to see what happens next to Dria, Rafe and her loyal were, Jon.

5.0 out of 5 stars another awesome book from CJ April 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is Jon's story. a prequel to how he comes to be in alaska . I read this book in 3 hrs i was hooked from the very first page. Trying not to give any spoilers here. Jon leaves his pack in manatoba after a big fight with the alpha. Heading on his journey. he finds his way to a diner and a sexy waitress and fellow werewolf raine. Then thigs explode and with the help of a sexy redheaded vampire and her mate . Jon becomes the alpha he knew he coulc be and the trusted friend and employee . This is a must read for anyone who has read VV Inn and the rest of the books. CJ does a great job telling the story in a way that hooks you from the very beginning, I stronger reccommend this book for everyone who likes werewolves and vampires ps the vampires don't sparkle and the werewolves are sex on a stick

5.0 out of 5 stars Jon is my hero!!!!! April 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a wonderful idea Ms Ellisson!! I have been an avid reader of your stories of the VV Inn, your characters have become family to me. I love Vivian aka Dria and her bonded mate Rafe along with the vamps, and weres living at the VV Inn located in the cold north country of Alaska. We have met Jon in the three novels already written, Book #1 Vampire Vacation, Book #2 The Hunt and Book #3 Big Game. We have seen Jon in the intricate web you have spun for his relationship with Vivian and Rafe. But we have never have been told how Jon came to be Dria's blood servant. This is their story.

Jonathan Winchester is a werewolf living with his pack in Manitoba. In his third year of college in Virginia, he was attacked by a werewolf and taken in by a couple who were the Alphas of a pack. Now the Alpha wolf in him is coming out, bringing issues between he and the same Alpha pack leader, butting heads. He had ideas that would be beneficial to his pack and was trying to bring the Alpha into the 20th century to no avail. This day, the fight was the last straw, hearing his Alpha saying, "If you walk out of here don't come back!" Jon was gone. Having given up his family in Virginia with them thinking he died in the attack, where would he go?

Jon drives south and realizes he is in Northern Virginia. It area is comforting to him, and he stops at a place to eat and meets Raine, a waitress there. He is interested in her, feeling her wolf within, and as their feelings grow she disappears. The only one he can turn to ask for the help is from his alpha pack leader and is refused. He is desperate to find someone anyone to help. As luck would have it he stumbles upon Dria and Rafe.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Sexy Alpha Wolf! April 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Finally we get a look into Jon's life and how he came to be. I couldn't wait to read this book. The author did an amazing job with bringing out all three characters that makes the V.V. Inn series.

Jon is the alpha wolf that we all know and love. He tries his best to help out a pack that he knows nothing about just because he has feelings for a woman in the pack. He knows that he needs to do whatever he can to help them and that is when you find out how his relationship with Dria and Rafe begins.

You just need to read this book and see what the adventure is all about. If you love hot sexy wolves and a strong and powerful vampire with a smart partner then you really need to read this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Exquisite April 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Death's Servant is the prequel to The VV Inn series, but with this particular prequel you don't necessarily have to have read the other books to be able to follow along.

When Jon has a falling out with the leader of his pack and decides to leave, he has no idea what his future has in store for him, but boy is it a bumpy & crazy ride. C.J. takes us on a wild, fun-filled, emotional ride. You get to see how Jon develops on his own away from his pack, how he meets Viv & Rafe, and what everyone goes through emotionally as a result of their meeting. I literally ran the gambit of emotions with this novella...laughing, crying, love, etc. From the very first page I didn't want to put the book down. As usual with C.J.'s books, I lost tons of sleep in order to read the book, but it was worth every minute of it!!
