Sarah Dearly's vampire life began about a year ago when a blind date went horribly wrong. It's not all bad, but it's not all B-positive cocktails either. A curse has made her a nightwalker, the most vicious and almost extinct kind of vampire there is. It forces her to wear a charm that keeps her deadly appetite at bay, but it's starting to wear off. Her master boyfriend, Thierry, is in a century long marriage that he cannot get out of, and her friends are still trying to hook her up. To top it off, a hunter from hell named Gideon Chase has forced her to break up with her very sexy, very French boyfriend to help him escape a doom of eternal hellfire. Turning up the heat, he threatens to kill the ones she loves if he doesn't obey his orders. As if that wasn't bad enough, her growing feelings for Gideon, a bad boy who keeps showing a sensitive side, is clouding her judgment. Will her dark side take over before she can cure herself of the curse in time to stop Gideon? More importantly, can she still have a happily forever after with Thierry?
I don't get to say this very often, but Michelle Rowen is truly a unique voice in this genre.Read more ›
Well, let's just say I wasn't disappointed! Another one I couldn't quit manage to put down (I read the entire thing in less than a 24 hour period despite having to work both days!) Fangsome is definitely more of a roller coaster than the previous books in the series. Its ups and downs keep you gripped so that by the end of every chapter you swore was to be the last one for the evening, you get sucked right back in. There's a lot of emotion in this one too. I laughed out loud. I found I couldn't keep from grinning at some of the lively dialogue between Thierry and Sarah. And at times, I almost thought I was going to cry because, yes things do get rather difficult for poor Sarah in this one.
This book does an excellent job at throwing in lots of twists and turns that keep the reader on her toes. Just when I thought I knew what was going to play out, something new popped up sending it in a different direction. But it also delivers a lot of that charming punch I've loved since the first book. The interaction among Sarah, Theirry, George...and yes even Quinn...is just as intriguing as ever.
Fangsome is witty, clever, and a stunning swan song for the Immortality Bites series. I only wish she'd change her mind and write more because I personally can't get enough of Sarah and Thierry.
Goodbyes are never very fun. I think I may have teared up a little bit.
The only thing that makes up for the misery of knowing that there won't be any further misadventures of Sarah is that this book was so damned good. Picking up right where "Stakes and Stilettos" left off, "Tall, Dark and Fangsome" finds Sarah still afflicted with a curse from a malevolent witch: the heroine has been changed from a relatively mildly, docile sort of vampire to a "nightwalker" -- sunlight can now kill her, and she has an uncontrollable bloodlust. In short and to her great dismay, she has become a Hollywood cliche.
The unfortunate vampire is not without her share of allies, however. Her series-long boyfriend, the enigmatic Thierry de Bennicoeur, master vampire of Toronto and hero extraordinaire, is always ready to help her, even in spite of her curse, and so is the Red Devil, an equally mysterious vampire vigilante ready to take up Sarah's cause. But to her dismay and fascination, she is also pursued by the infamous vampire hunter, who wants her to turn him into a vampire and can't seem to keep her hands off of her...
Of course, the outstanding side characters of "Immortality Bites" make their appearances, as well as a few new humorous additions; these guys really take this series from "another good paranormal romance" to funny, funny chick-lit and the best brand of urban fantasy.
I'd recommend reading this book as part of the series, though it could also stand alone; readers wouldn't be lost jumping in with "Tall, Dark and Fangsome", but they would miss so much that it's worth the extra time with the earlier books.
Amazing series, with an amazing finale. Wonderful!
