JABRIL (Vampires in America) wins the 2010 RT Reviewer's Choice Award for BEST PARANORMAL ROMANCE (Small Press)--RT Book Reviews
"Smart, suspenseful and sexy. D. B. Reynolds' characters linger long after the last page." --Kelley Armstrong (NYT bestselling Author of the Otherworld series)
"D. B. Reynolds' debut novel is a fast-paced story full of dark power and rough primal action that'll keep you up late at night turning the pages. Her characters are genuine and damned likable, flaws and all. I fell in love with Cyn--tough, cool, and smart. I can't wait to journey with Cyn once more into her world of moonlight investigations, brooding vampires, and mystery." --Adrian Phoenix (author of A Rush of Wings and In the Blood
4 1/2 STARS AND A TOP PICK!(January 2010) A strong heroine, a sensual vampire and a menacing villain, evil in every sense of the word -- it doesn't get much better than this second installment in the Vampires in America series. Readers will have a tough time closing the book on this riveting story. Reynolds' complex mythology includes eight vampire lords who control North America. A top-notch series! -- ROMANTIC TIMES BOOK REVIEWS
FOUR TOMBSTONES! Full of ruthless vampires, the story depicts an interesting society reminiscent of feudal lords. Raphael rules his territory like a king, adding to the mystique the vampires hold for the human population in the book. Major points go to Reynolds for creating a tough female protagonist who saves herself rather than waiting for the guy to arrive. Abandoned by her mother and basically ignored by her father, Cyn grew up in, as she describes it, "a virtual emotional vacuum" (Ch.24), and the resulting toughness in her character feels real to the reader. Suspenseful and action-packed, Raphael, while providing closure of some plotlines, leaves the door open for the sequel to which this reviewer looks forward. -- BITTEN BY BOOKS

Jabril wants to irritate his rival Raphael so he pretends Cyn is his only sleuth working for him. His scheme backfires when she finds in Houston what condition Mirabelle is in. Cyn rescues her and takes her to her home in Los Angeles where she comes into Raphael's orbit because she must beg her former lover to make the teen his own. Cyn looks for Liz among the runaways, but is unaware that a snake creeps in Raphael's realm ready to sell the women to foster favor with an outraged fuming Jabril.
Jabril is a monster out of the Stoker school of vampires as power is his elixir and anyone else is expendable regardless of the laws governing the North American vampires. Raphael is his opposite coming out of the modern day romance school of vampires as he cares what happens to others and abides by the governing laws. The fabulous story line focuses on the vast diversity of ethics between the eight Vampire Lords with the concentration being on the two polar opposites. Cyn is sinfully perfect as the rope in the vampiric tug of war. Wit this sequel to RAPHAEL, D.B. Reynolds provides a wonderful and exciting Vampires in America urban fantasy that will appeal to fans of vampire romantic thrillers.
Ultimately, Cyn follows her conscious and battles to save the two wards of Jabril, sisters Liz and Mirabelle, who have been enslaved by Jabril, as he seeks to funnel their fortunes his way. Incurring Jabril's wrath, Cyn must seek shelter once again with Raphael. The romance scenes are intimate and sexy as always and my favorite vamp Duncan, shows why he is Raphael's trusted companion again and again.
Once more DB Reynolds has satisfied us immensely and has left us wanting more --thank goodness Rajmund, Book 3 of Vampires in America, is on the way to us this Fall.
Like the first book, the story is engaging and well-developed that moves at a good pace. Then there's Cyn who's still the kick-ass heroine we all love in book 1. It was nice to see Cyn show her vulnerable side; her heart breaking when Raphael left her; and finally admitting to herself and Raphael that she does love him, that she indeed is capable of loving another, even caring for the homeless teens. She may not be perfect (who is) but she's still tough, confident and smart when it comes to her job as a private investigator. On top of rescuing one girl outta the clutches of an evil vampire, Jabril, she's looking for a missing teenager. She's also taken it upon herself to find the real serial killer as police believe Raphael is the killer. Since the police are determined to pin the murders on Raphael, Cyn is intent to solve the crimes at the same time doing her best to move on without Raphael, which is next to impossible as he continuously invades her dreams every night which leave her hot and frustrated. I love how Cyn is able to solve the crimes beating the police at their own game, at the same time not being a cocky bitch rubbing it in their faces when it turns out she's right. As sexy as Raphael is, Duncan, Raphael's right-hand vampire (lieutenant) is definitely worthy of being mentioned. What a terrific, complex and sexy vampire, at times even sarcastic, being funny, which I love in a vampire. Between the two, I choose Duncan hands down.
As much as I love the story, there were a few things I found a little off.Read more ›
