And rest assured, this is not your typical vampire story! Ms. Vyne takes on a new approach to the vampire/vampire hunter genre. As a reader, I thought it was refreshing and left me guessing as well. I love that it does not follow a predictable story line. I also appreciated the various settings that you follow the characters through like Paris and Mexico. She adds the right amount of details to help you visualize where they are without over doing it.
The stories follow Oliver Ripley, born into the Vampire Hunter Ripley family. He has always known that there was something different about him, and he is determined to prove to his family that he is every bit the vampire hunter as the rest of them. He soon runs into a Vladula vampire, the seductive and lovely Miranda. They quickly realize that they both are special and more alike than they are different, and that they are both in terrible danger from Vampires and Vampire Hunters alike. Not knowing where to turn, they go on the run together. They don't know who they can trust, or where they can go to be safe. It is a roller coaster ride of a story, with the characters ultimately sacrificing much to restore the balance of the world.
This is a great read! It is a new twist on the usual vampire story, and a riveting combination of adventure, dark fantasy and romance. I highly recommend it.
These three stories are unique tales that mix Western and ancient American myths to provide a thrilling tale of 2 star-crossed lovers in a world where little is ever what it seems and many characters are smarter and more astute than they first appear.
Zander Vyne writes incredible battle scenes. Whether they are fights in the physical world or on the spiritual plane, the action sequences are clear, easy to follow, and make sense for their location. The erotica portions are just as precisely written and just as much a joy to read. The conversations in these books flow well and the description paint just enough of the picture of the environment that the reader has a feel of the location without being bogged down by needless details.
My one criticism is the chapter near the end of the third volume where the reader is told about how things are finally resolved instead of shown through the actions of the characters. I am sure this was done to keep the length of the book within the publisher's guidelines, but this author had been conveying the information within the framework of the story so well up to that point it was a bit of a let down to simply be told that after all of the proceeding actions, this was the result instead of adding a chapter or two more to show those same results happening to the characters.
The door has been left ajar for the possibility of at least one more book in this series. I will be interested to read it if it is written because over the course of the 3 novels I became invested in the surviving characters.
This Omnibus Edition includes a short story by the same author that I also thoroughly enjoyed reading. I do not feel I can review it without giving away the ending but, once I began reading it I could not put it down until I reached the end of it. Afterward, I just sat there dazed and amazed at how well and tightly written it was.
The first two stories follow on fairly well, but the third is set several years later and has a wider scope and rather darker feel. The backstory was filled in quite rapidly, then we were off again. There are more enough loose threads and an open-enough ending to allow further stories, if Ms Vyne’s muse inspires her. Personally, I’m curious to learn more about the talents Oliver developed between the second and third stories, and how things develop from the situation at the end of the third one.
There’s enough sexiness in the first two stories to make them distinctly saucy, but there’s more than enough story to keep things moving along very nicely.
