"A fun, fast-paced read loaded with well-developed characters and believable, fully realized settings. This is one of those rare sequels that almost outshines its predecessor, and readers who haven't read Redemption are brought up to speed quickly." - RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 stars (HOT)

I really like this series, it's fun and well-written while remaining fairy light and entertaining. I'm impressed by how realistic the characters' dialog is which is a deal-breaker for me. It also stays more on the PG-13 side of paranormal romance than most books nowadays which makes them perfect for reading in the lunchroom or in public. I love the "wilder" stuff but I just can't enjoy it on the bus! ;)
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series!

This book actually took me quite by surprise! I am not a reader of the vampire genre.. though lately there have been a few books that have me reading some of them. Truly loved how the author made most of the humans "off-limits" to the vampires due to an anomaly in the blood. The heroine, Glory.. of this story.. literally makes this book come alive in your mind as you read along. This is the first book of Susannah's that I've ever read. WOW!! I found that though I'd not read the previous book of this series that it was not necessary. I love that about books in a series.. and want to know.. that no matter where you begin.. you won't feel lost. A true stand alone! You will find yourself cheering for Glory and her new love! An awesome read! One that I'd highly recommend to anyone looking for a book to escape into.. no matter what the reason is!

I really liked this book in the series. Mirren is the 'tough ol guy' in the good camp of the vampires. He is the bad*ss. Then you have Glory, a sassy young girl who just kinda boom- finds a way into his life and heart. It's a great journey to watch. This series is modern, on the lighter side, and enjoyable to read.

In book 2 of the Penton Legacy, Aidan's second in command, Mirren Kincaid "the slayer" was captured by Mathias Ludlum, who hoped to force Mirren back to being the tribunals mercenary and/or his personal goon. During this same time, Mathias kidnapped a young Gloriana Cummings, a clerk at a Circle K gas station, because he sensed some special powers he thought he could add to his arsenal for his war against Aiden & the Pentonville Community. When Mathias was unable to break Glori, he locked her in a room with Mirren, a vampire who hadn't been fed in a month. But being a master vampire helped Mirren keep some control around Glori, and when Mirren was rescued he took Glori too.

Thus began Mirren & Glori's journey towards coupledom! A great, though not easy adventure. But it was a helping process for the slayer and the freak. This author has made a seemingly simple & predictable storyline very engaging and fun to read. I couldn't stop and I loved the that tortured hero struggle that Mirren was going through. He wanted the love, but felt he didn't desrving of it due to his past as an executioner for hire. I also love Glori's strength because she was much tougher than Krys. Glori had been battle tested by her family and thus a perfect match for Mirren. I love the various characters and how they were intertwined. I can't wait for book 3.

Reading the discription; I was expecting a completely different book. Like the first one, I had some issues with the "love story" aspect of the book, but it wasn't terrible - I just tend to over think things at times. In the first book, I took issues with someone falling in love while being held captive. In this one, I just had trouble with the immediate "love" of the book. But then again, it's a series about vampires so I got over it.

The best part of the book, for me, was the ending. It was kind of predictable, but then not. The bad guy is so terribly bad that although I'm cheering for his defeat, I'm excited that he's there and keeps slipping out of the noose to wreck more havoc.

Just started the third book and it's great so far.

It was a model city during a blood pandemic where Vapires and their human familiars lived together. The trial run was going perfectly unless you were the Son of a council member out for power or a young girl that had been brought here by someone trying to help her get over the fact the that same council member had kidnapped her and used her and now was the only one alive who could testify against him.For a YA vampire novel, it's a great read and new idea which l really loved.

I really liked this series from Susannah Sandiln the women are not your average boring same ole same ole they are strong minded, humorous and determined. The book was one that I kept sneaking in chapters when ever I had a moment! drew me in just like the protector series from Teresa Gabelman and I hated to leave.

Usually a series doesn't get better on the second book but this is the exception. I don't do spoilers so it's ok to keep reading. Mirren is the star of this book along with a new character and its just as saucy as the first book. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
