I thoroughly enjoyed Vamped Up. My favorite characters from Intervamption return, along with a few new gems who hooked me right away. Kristin does a great job of showing Ruan's anguish and self-loathing, and Eve's reaction in turn. She also does a bang up job writing dark, evil characters. Savage returns in this installment in a big way, and with him, a very compelling storyline. Between the unique lore, the fated love story and the non-stop action, Vamped Up has a little something for everyone. I highly recommend.
The characters often make stupids decisions without basis, the timing in it seems to lower the appeal of the events. A good example is the pregnancy of one of the characters, her sickness is mentioned then suddenly she tells her mate. How much time has passed, a day? Why didn't he and everyone else guess as it was so obvious? There is too much going on that following the plot is frustrating. It keeps digressing rather than moving to another scenario.
Ruan seems to whine most of the time, refuses to listen to logic and this takes away from him as the hero. It is a shame as this book could be better than this. The author writes well and the plot is very interesting but this time round I don't think I can be bothered getting the next book. I am sure many would disagree.
We first met Eve and Ruan back in Intervamption and it was clear even then that they were on the path to get their own story. Unfortunately, this book really kind of skips over all of the falling in love parts. We've had a time jump of a few weeks since the last book and our couple is already involved in a serious relationship as this story begins. Ruan is a vampire and Eve is a human, which is causing some problems. Ruan wants to take her blood, but he knows he doesn't have the control to stop feeding once he starts. He's been having dreams about killing Eve and it's scaring him to death. His fears are driving a wedge between them, which is made worse by the fact that he won't tell her what's going on inside him.
Meanwhile, Savage is back and he still wants to take over as the leader of the vampires. His latest plan to accomplish that is to learn how to harness and control the powerful dark spirits that dwell within the Elders of the race. It's not as easy as he first hoped and eventually his nefarious plan brings him to Eve, who turns out to be much more than a mundane human.
It took me a really long time to get into this book. Perhaps, this is because so much of the love connection between Ruan and Eve happened off page. Maybe because I was frustrated by Ruan's unwillingness to communicate. I don't know. The characters fell flat and I couldn't connect to their relationship. I just wasn't feeling the book at all, until about halfway-in... when we started to see the set-up for side character Dante's story. It wasn't a great sign that I was more interested in what happened to him than what was going on with our main couple.
Eventually, Eve and Ruan's story does get more interesting, as we begin to learn about their hidden pasts. But it took too long to get there. I felt like this book had potential that it just didn't reach. I liked the last book better and hopefully Dante's story will reel me back in to this series. He seems like a pretty tortured hero --and I'm such a sucker for those. 3 stars.
