Editorial Reviews


***** 5-Stars
"RK Close has delivered a fast-paced, intriguing novel that seamlessly blends the supernatural and the everyday into one un-put-downable read. Red Night has rightfully taken the vampire genre by storm, and RK Close is definitely a new author to watch!" 
- Elicia Hyder, Amazon #1 Best Selling Author, The Soul Summoner Series 
***** 5-Stars
"I liked how the romantic elements of the story didn't overpower the plot. The villain was a worthy adversary and the twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. I look forward to the sequel!" 
- Juliet Lyons, Author, Dating The Undead Series

I'm an enthusiastic vampire fan. It's fair to say that I've loved them long enough. I've seen many an iteration of the children of the night; from mindless beasts to those who sparkle and subscribe only to animal blood.

It's been a while though, since I found vampires that follow the cardinal rule: a balance between reason and savagery that allows a monster to pass for human before our very eyes.

R.K. Close gave me those vampires, and a little more. "Red Night", the first book of the Vampire Files introduces us to Samantha Chase. Sam is smart, independent and blessed by both common sense and the initiative to sign herself up for an adventure, if needed be. That serves her well, since she is a private detective.

Used to cases that mostly involve infidelities and other relentless pursuits of the careless, Sam seemed to keep a steady schedule of cases solved and new clients walking in... Until she stumbled upon the impossible.

Vampires. They are real, and in no way what she expected.

In comes Adam, tall, dark and deadly. For any other woman, this might spell doom. But being Samantha Chase... Well, our vampire ends up signing in for more the he bargained for.

The book is a fast paced, entertaining read that paints a believable picture of the other side of existence as supernatural elements weave themselves into the mundane. Soon our Sam will discover that there is more than meets the eye. Friends and neighbors reveal unexpected secrets and those handsome new acquaintances with dead cold stares are bent on dragging her into a centuries old vendetta that can only be settled in blood.

There is a natural flow of dialogue and action that helps along suspense of disbelief.

I love books that grab your attention from the very beginning. This is one of those. Our witty heroine is in way over her head in chapter one and she knows it. And I love Samantha Chase. She's not your typical paranormal leading lady. She's smart and confident, and while she does have thing for *ahem* questionable men, who can blame her?? Adam and his blue eyes lost me a whole day at work! This book puts a new spin on the old tale of the undead, so if you love all things sure to read it!

I was asked to give an honest review of the ARC I received.

Samantha Chase is a female PI, but she’s not dark and depressed like Jessica Jones. She’s upbeat, friendly, loves her clothes, her work-out routine, and apparently walking around her condo in just her panties and a t-shirt. LOL. I wouldn’t be surprised if she had been on the cheerleading squad in high school (not that that has a thing to do with walking around in panties and a t-shirt).

Her friends know her as Samantha Lewis, and only one of them knows what her real job is. She does tend to keep people (especially men) at a safe distance. At least a couple men are pining for her, but they’re not invasive and they most certainly don’t break into her condo in the middle of the night. That is until she happens upon a vampire named Adam.

It’s a typical job. A client wants proof of her husband’s love affair with another woman, but when Sam follows the woman into a parking garage and starts taking photos, she happens to capture something she shouldn’t have noticed. Was that attractive man really drinking that woman’s blood? And when the man noticed her, did he move faster than humanly possible, or did she get spooked and run from a danger that was never there?

Soon, however, this vampire – this Adam – forces his way into her life, and he doesn’t respect boundaries. He’s breaking into her apartment in the middle of the night, stalking her when she’s hanging out with friends. He’s used to getting his way and continually taunts her about her level of attraction to him. He seems to think it’s only a matter of time before she’ll be begging him to bite her.

But this vampire’s interest brings about a new danger. Zachariah has noticed Adam’s interest in Sam.

I requested this book because of the blurb and it didn't disappoint. I binge read paranormal romance and love it when an author tries to put a twist on vampire stories.
Samantha was a smart detective who runs into trouble while working a case. She suffers disturbed sleep and nightmares after that freaky encounter. Adam is drawn to Samantha, but his attraction puts her in the path of Zachariah, who wants revenge.

Meeting Adam completely changes Samantha's life. A serial killer brutally kills women who look like her, Gabe, her neighbour, may be more than a mild mannered professor and her life is in danger.
The love triangle was because of circumstance which made it realistic. Gabe and Adam, were as different as night and day, the author portrays this accurately.
There are other supernatural creatures other than vampires, you learn a little about their history, but you don't get all the answers.

The book was fast paced and unpredictable, Zachariah was menacing and Sam's nightmares added to the anticipation and tension.
I liked Gabe, but as of now, I'm definitely on Team Adam.
The book has a frustrating cliffhanger but I would love to know what happens next.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
