I stumbled across the first one in a collection I got from Amazon and just couldn't stop reading, and then I had to know how it continuous. I finished all 5 books in less than one week.
Now, that said, there were a few aspects in the story I didn't like and people who haven't read the book(s) might want to stop reading here.
Although Tessa appears to be refreshingly different from so many other female main characters in other vampire stories (the tall, skinny flat chested Tessa against the super busty, perfect shaped seductresses in other books), she is also on the verge of becoming a full on Mary Sue.
Despite being in the mountain for about a week with no food and rest (we only hear/read her talking about her power naps, but she never actually has one), she still seems to kill every enemy, no matter how strong and big, almost effortlessly, she constantly develops new abilities to rescue her friends and family, and even been injured by a silver stake, she doesn't only just recover quickly, but instead of feeling weak, her abilities only enhance from the injury. In the beginning of the books, we learn that Tessa doesn't feel accepted by the vampire world, because of her 'throwback (human) genetics', and that her own people like to make fun of her and talk badly about her, now, in a matter of hours and days, that completely changes. Not only starts everybody around her admiring Tessa, but also the two male main characters fall in love with her.
The second thing is, although the good vamps take the bad vamps down one after one, no one of the good vamps/guys dies.Of course, it wouldn't be nice to read, especially if you grow a care for certain characters, it is kind of unrealistic, especially with so much fighting going on. The only two people who die and used to be part of a closer circle of Tessa's family were betrayers and involved in the blood farm mess.
The last thing which I found a bit off was that the two ancients, vampires who have lift through centuries had the same language pattern like the young vamps (basically teenagers), thinking/saying/using all the same slang.
That is not supposed to be a rant, as mentioned in the beginning, the books in itself a brilliant and so addcitive.
The writing was however brilliant, as Dale has a great flare for use of language. Now back to reading the next. Keep up the good work of writing!
