Definitely one of the better vampire stories I have read in quite some time.
I actually had very little idea what the book was about, which put me off from reading it, so here is a quick and hopefully spoiler free synopsis:
The male and female protagonists, who begin as strangers and love to hate each other, and are forced by circumstance to take a very long road trip together. Between them fighting each other and fighting the people trying to kill them, there is never a dull moment.
I'd say more but I don't want to spoil anything. Dialogue, characters, and action are well written, fast paced, and funny. If you liked his other books you will enjoy this one.
There were 2 issues I had with this book. First, I did find some of the tropes derivative of his other works. Second, the end of the book raised more questions than it answers. I almost wish I had waited to read book 1 after book 2 was published.
Set in the same "universe" as the Chance Lee books, this centers on a Hunter named Ryan and a very awkward situation. I liked how Ryan is a very competent vampire hunter unlike his counterpart Chance, who usually ends up tied to a chair or something. Ryan is pretty hardcore about his profession and this lends some tension to the story.
In the interest of full disclosure, I will say that a large portion of this story is dedicated to a romance and all the hesitancies and awkward situations that entails. I didn't mind it at all but if you are looking for constant shoot em up or vampires that are basically bloodthirsty animals or demons, look elsewhere.
Bottom line: I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to fans of urban fantasy and especially Chance Lee fans. Buy this book and support an budding author, it's only 2.99 right?
