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

But by the half way point, things started to look up, and I was once again so hooked in the story that household chores got pushed to the wayside. I’m very happy to say that this book did NOT end on a cliffhanger. I’m going to go right out and buy book 3, but this time, it’s because I want to remain in Cyn and Raphael’s world, not because I feel like I have to to get some closure.
Cynthia (Cyn)Leighton is still suffering from a broken heart after master vampire, Raphael, leaves her alone. As she is a private investigator, she decides to take on the case of a missing girl in Texas. Elizabeth is human, but under the care of her guardian, a vampire named, Jabril. The girl’s sister, Mirabelle, is also under Jabril’s rule, only she is also a vampire. The sisters have inherited a huge estate and Jabril has taken it over and is just waiting for Elizabeth to turn eighteen before he changes her, as he did Mirabelle. As he is their master, or in Elizabeth’s case, will be, that puts all of the estate in Jabril’s hands. I should mention that Jabril is just flat out evil-not one shred of anything else but evil. Cyn of course is having none of it. She takes one look at Jabril and knows that both sisters need to be free of him. And let me tell you, Jabril’s wrath is pretty unreal. Raphael is really not happy with Cyn either. He knows exactly what Jabril motives are towards Cyn, and they have everything to do with Raphael.
I haven’t found a series that I liked this well in awhile. I have a huge tbr pile and that means I usually read the first of a series, have every intention of reading the next one, and in most cases, still haven’t. So the fact that I immediately read the second one of this series after finishing the first, is very telling. I found them to be well written, suspenseful, bloody and very sensual. Cyn is not one of those simpering main characters that have to be rescued by the hero. She can hold her own with vampires and does so-even if the odds are stacked against her. I also enjoyed getting to know more about Raphael, and his reasons for leaving Cyn behind.
The next book features another couple from what I can tell. I do know that the author revisits this couple in at lease a couple novellas. I am going to try and read these books in order, no matter how much I want to finish reading more about Cyn and Raphael! My hope is that the next books, and their main characters, are just as entertaining, and the characters as well drawn, as the characters in these first two books. If you haven’t read the first book in this series, you really should, as this book will make a lot more sense! FYI-This one does not have a cliffhanger-good news! (RabidReads.com)
