Review Two Vampires and a Baby - sounds like the beginning to a joke, right? This is what author Kallysten has written about in this book "Fangs & Lullabies" which is book one in the series "The Demon Age". The vampires in this story are Andrew who is Sire to Nicholas. When the story begins we meet Andrew with his human girlfriend, Cara, of twenty years as she is giving birth to their son, Jacob. Cara doesn't survive long into the story, leaving Jacob who she conceived using advanced science and magic, with Andrew. Not long after, Nicholas shows up on his Sire's doorstep vowing he has changed his ways and has returned to his sire. When Nicholas finds out about Jacob he steps up to help his Sire raise the motherless child.
This story goes through the life of Jacob each chapter a different year as he is growing up and showing different things that Andrew, Nicholas, and Jacob dealt with as a "blended" family. I say blended because this story takes place in a world where Vampires are known by humans yet not allowed to raise a child, as if anyone would ever believe a vampire could sire a human child. No they more than likely would have accused and killed Andrew & Nicholas for kidnapping a human baby. Needless to say this was one secret they all worked to hide.
As Jacob got older and traits of his vampire genetics started appearing such as super strength, speed, fast healing and excellent hearing, Andrew & Nicholas taught Jacob how to hide these traits and blend in with the human kids. They were able to hide their family dynamics until Jacob becomes a teenager and falls in love, sharing his families secret with his girlfriend. At that point Andrew has to decide whether to use magic or enthralling the girl to make her forget or to take a chance and let the girl in to their inner circle.
I enjoyed this story and watching the years go by the way the author wrote them. I really loved how the author rotated the view points throughout each chapter so the reader got an in-depth look at how each character felt. There were some parts of this story that had me laughing and some parts that made me chest hurt with those good ol' Feelz. I look forward to the next story in the series and wonder if we will see Andrew, Nicholas, and Jacob again. I can't help but wonder if Jacob would want to be turned as he gets older and starts to understand mortality more and how his two Dad's would have dealt with that - I also would have loved to see poor Andrew deal with Jacob going off to college, getting married, having kids... The story ends with Jacob age 17, so hopefully we will get to see more!
4 stars -- I recommend this story to lovers of Vampires!

Kally!!! Have you any idea what you're doing to me woman! You're killing me here. These men of yours are really something else. First there was the delectable Brett, Leo and Anando. Then there was the delicious Marc and Blake. And now. Now!! You throw Andrew and Nicholas at me. *fans self* It's too much for my perverted wee mind to handle. Imagine that! Scandalous! I swear, I LOVED this bloody book. Loved it!! I absolutely fell in love with the vampire daddies. Christ, they are amazing!!! And Jacob, that boy is gonna be a heart breaker. At the age of seventeen he was already making me melt for him. *cough* Sorry. Rant finished. I'll tell you about the book now... lol.
The book begins in a hospital room, Andrew is saying goodbye to his love and mother of his child, Cara. A brilliant scientist and mage she successfully impregnates herself with a half human/vampire embryo. Sadly, her body just couldn't cope with the pregnancy and birth. And Andrew soon finds himself alone with his new son. Taking his son away Andrew starts a new life for them, he's determined to raise his son in a way Cara would be proud of, and he succeeds. This vamp is strong, protective, loving, and just down right sexy. I loved how he could be the perfect dad to Jacob one minute, all caring and sweet. And then be the perfect lover and Sire to Nicholas the next, all dominating and sexual. While still saving the human race from demon attacks. Mmm...
A few months after starting anew Andrew is surprised to find his wayward Childe, Nicholas, on his doorstep. He had chased Nicolas away nearly a century before due to his unsavoury appetite, but now Nicholas is willing to behave in order to get back into his Sire's life. Once again we find a strong, protective and loving vamp in Nicholas, but what I loved about him the most was his deviant streak. Even after one hundred and fifty odd years he still manages to act like a child at times. He seemed to get off annoying Andrew... lol. It was great, especially when he made it up to him again *wink wink* Grr...
I have to say that I really enjoyed reading the story from Jacob's perspective. From the age of two or three years this boy told it as he seen it. I laughed repeatedly at some of the comments he made about his two dads, for example he made comments about them always 'wrestling' and on one occasion when he was told he was too big to sleep in daddy's bed he replied 'But Nicholas is a big boy too and you let him sleep in your bed'. Such a kiddie comment...lol. As Jacob grew his opinions and views on life did too, it was great seeing the world as he seen it. Having to deal with not only being raised by two vampire males, having to hide this fact from everyone he knew, but to also have to cope with hiding his own special abilities. This kid is amazing!! We really get a feel for the man he's gonna become from the last few chapters, and all I can say is wow! He is definitely going to be as charming, protective, and loving as his parents.
As I've said already, I loved this book. It's not the usual vampire romance we're used to getting from Kally, but it totally worked for me. This book was more family orientated, letting us experience the difficulties in raising a child and keeping a family together, while still having to fight demons and save the world of course. I love a good fight scene, all that action and blood spill, and I thought I would miss it this time around. But strangely I didn't. I was too caught up in the whole raising Jacob stuff that it didn't bother me. It was a nice change. We did however still get a good helping of steamy love scenes from Andrew and Nicholas. And as always Kally fails to disappoint there. One of the best sex scenes for me was when Andrew gave Nicholas a VERY special anniversary present for his one hundred and fifty year Siring. Lets just say Andrew was the one being dominated that night. Mmm...
I'm not gonna say any more, don't want to give away too much. I swear I could talk about this book all day...lol. But I wont. So, I'm sure you can already guess what I'm gonna tell you... Go buy this book! Now!
