Night’s Templar is book thirteen in the inestimable “Vampire Queen series” by the incomparable Joey W. Hill. Ms. Hill’s writing always consumes the reader with rich characters, deep emotion and enthralling settings, but that she can sustain this particular series through so many books without compromising any of these elements is a testament to her skills, to these characters and to the world they inhabit.
What makes this book stand out, for this reader at least, are two elements in particular. While we have been given more than a glimpse into the Fae world in a previous instalment (Bound by the Vampire Queen), this is more an exploration of the quest by Vampire Lord Uthe and Fae Lord Keldwyn, as well as their evolving relationship. Both of these elements combine to further the interaction and cooperation between the two worlds. In so doing, the series is opened up to so many new elements and possibilities that it makes a series fan positively giddy with anticipation.
Second, and it is this I appreciate beyond measure, is the almost magical blending of history and legend, with the most imaginary of paranormal worlds. Uthe’s role as a Templar Knight and the quest with which he has been entrusted for nearly 900 years was slowly revealed in an engrossing weave into the fabric of time such that, for the duration of the story, it fit. Perfectly. Vividly. And oh so imaginatively. It was stunning how the small pieces of legend were enhanced when placed in this fantastical world, bringing them to almost tangible life.
Longstanding VQ fans will be able to get their ‘squee’-on with a liberal dose of familiar characters, deeper exposure to some newer favourites, and months of speculation as to who’s story is next. And the cache of possible characters just expanded exponentially. New readers will be clamouring for the backlist because no one can touch that place inside a book-lover that transforms escape into a momentary reality, quite the way Ms. Hill can.
Night’s Templar is quintessentially Vampire Queen, but the brilliant blend of the real, the legendary and the imagined takes this story to a new plane. Kudos for an exceptional, next-level read.
As already stated by by Jaycee the story is a superb blending of history and legend, with the most vivid of paranormal worlds. Uthe’s role as a Templar Knight is beautifully weaved into the fabric of the story. Ms. Hill really is a master of her craft.
For fans of the Vampire Queens series books, Ms. Hill has many of her beloved characters return and participate in this installment.
Although this is the 13th installment of the series (did you know that Friday the 13th is unlucky because of what happened to the Templar Knights on that day?), the characters and the story remain fresh.
For anyone that enjoys a finely crafted story with sexy interesting characters, this book is a must buy!
To begin I will have to disclose I a huge fan of Ms. Hill, because she and a handful of other authors are on my to buy list not matter what they write. Her work is that excellent. This is the last book in her vampire queen series-- it's a standalone (and Ms. HIll is so good that each of her books can be read by itself-- they each have a beginning and end-- but they will leave you wanting for more but not because it leaves you hanging to know, but because you care to see how each relatiohsip progresses), however, it is best enjoyed if you read the previous books first (different couples but the main characters of this book appear in some of them). The vampire and fae worlds are complex and captivating and full or rules, violence, deceit and prejudices. The main characters Kal (a fae lord) and Uthe (a vampire lord) are multilayered and captivating and reading how their relationship developed is breathtaking. The maturity these two bring to the table and how this beautifully written story reads kept me up all night long. And this is not a small feat to accomplish-- when your read about these two old souls- their actions represent their life span and the ability to learn and act accordingly. Their anguish and tributalitions are appropriate to their development and what they are willing to do for each other is captured with the poignancy achieved by very few in this genre in the English language.
As those who are fans can attest Ms. HIll is unsurpassed in writing romantic erotica and describes the power exchange among the characters beautifully. And yes there is sex and a lot of steamy scences (and can Ms. Hill write these such that you feel you are in the room and need a fan). But her books are more than just steamy scenes it's the story of two dominant men (and who really have not been warm and fuzzy in the past and somewhat unlikeable and arrogant to tell the truth). But as you embark in this Night's Templar journey and as you discover who these two characters are you fall in love. While I don't usually read m/m romance-- this book and all of Ms. Hill's books make you forget any particular bias or particular like and you get lost in this beautifully written story that brings history, legend and love to life to life.
If you have never read a Vampire Queen Series book your are in for a treat-- start reading asap such goodness coming your way. I am somehwat envious. If you are a long time fan you don't need any persuasion that Ms. Hill has done it again. My only small complaint (which is really is not a complaint but a constant wish for more of my favorite characters) is that we did not get to see more of Lord Mason and Jessica, but as I said it my constant mantra. Enjoy the read you will not be disappointed.
