Review

Reynolds offers up a fast-paced, well-plotted and skillfully-executed narrative that pulls the reader in from the very first page. ... The intriguing world the author creates comes alive on the page. FIVE TOMBSTONES from --BITTEN BY BOOKS

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

This follow up to Reynolds' "Raphael" does not disappoint. We are treated once again to tough, beautiful P.I. Cynthia Leighton and to die for vampire, Raphael. Cyn is on the outs with Raphael and takes an offer from an evil Texas vampire lord, Jabril, to find his missing ward. The action rockets from Texas to California and back to Arizona in this fast read. I couldn't put it down. The love scenes between Cyn and Raphael sizzle (yes they kiss and make up in one of the best written declarations of love ever written in a romance novel). I guarantee vampire romance enthusiasts will love "Jabril", but start with "Raphael". Then be like me and wait impatiently for next years' "Rajmund".

Jabril Karim used his political clout to gain guardianship pf Elizabeth and Mirabelle. When she turned the legal age of consent eighteen, Jabril converted her into a vampire like he is. He took over their home and the teen's fortune. The Vampire Lord is outsmarted by Elizabeth who planned and executed her escape perfectly. Jabril hires a male private investigator to find her, but also employs P.I. Cynthia Leighton who once had a relationship with Vampire Lord Raphael until he walked away from her.

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.

DB Reynolds has done it again with Book 2 of her Vampire in America series. Vampyric pleasure accrues when "sucking down" this great read. You just can't put it down. I had to finish it in one sitting. The ever tough, sexy and determined PI Cynthia Leighton (known as Cyn to her friends) takes a big vampire investigation job in Texas to try and blot out Raphael's rejection of her from her mind and heart. Yes Raphael is back, that hunky Vampire Lord who stole her heart in Book 1. In Houston she receives her assignment from the slimy and truly evil Vampire Lord Jabril Karim. All his conniving, evil and destructive ways are described in detail...I think I hissed out loud when I read his name on the page.
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.

Loved the 2nd book in the Vampires in America series. Detective Cyn (a human) kicks a$$ against the vampires. Fast paced, high action, hard to put down. Love the bit of romance thrown in, and that the story focuses more on the action. Another winner from D.B. Reynolds!

While I really enjoy this series and can't wait for the next book, Jabril was sort of disappointing. Raphael, Duncan and the others were "good guys" and their ladies were strong characters in their own right. Not so in this book. As an extension of Raphael and Cyn's story it was okay but Jabril was a creep as were his flunkies and deserved what they got in the end. But even as an extension of the previous book, Jabril was a weak story with no apparent conclusion. The territory and the reader are left hanging. As a stand alone book, don't bother with it. If you're reading it as part of the series, it actually could be skipped. Most of the important info is mentioned in following books.

The story of Raphael and Cyn continues in book 2 of the "Vampires of America" series. As much as I loved the first book in the series, "Raphael," I was just a tad disappointed with "Jabril."

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.
