The Vampire Mafia is a collection of novellas that tell one large story from several different views. I became engrossed in each novella and read one a day until I finished. I loved how the author was able to make the cast of characters so unique. It’s hard to do this in novellas I think. I have found that a lot of times you get the main characters thoroughly fleshed out, but the side characters are usually flat. This isn’t the case here! All the characters are utilized and have their own unique identities which really makes for a great read.
As the name suggests, this book has an element of paranormal but also an element of mystery/thriller. Personally I enjoyed the mystery element to these novellas. Reading the first novella, I kept picturing those old, black and white detective movies despite the fact it’s set in the present. Then in the last novella, one of the characters reminded me of Humphrey Bogart, right down to the nickname of his girl: "kid." *swoon*
My favorite of the four novellas is Collateral, which is the third in the series. It follows Sosie, a young woman who is being held by the vampires until her father can pay off his debt. I think the reason I like this one so well is the love interest. Rather than it being an insta-love/lust thing, it’s a slow build-up for Sosie. It’s interesting to read that slow build and how it plays out, especially in novella form. Plus I love J.M. He’s the ultimate bad-boy!
I loved the setting and world-building of these novellas. The story is set in the seedy underbelly of August, New York and focuses on the crime syndicate. I liked how the author built into the mafia-type world and gave it her own spin with the paranormal element of vampires. And friends, if you’ve read The Té-trad Tale trilogy, you’re in for some fun Easter eggs! I may or may not have squealed with excitement.
Overall, I really enjoyed this series. I liked each novella. There are some pretty graphic scenes of sex and gore which for me I can usually do without which is why it’s four instead of five stars, but that’s a personal preference and not a reflection on the story. The story itself is fantastic in my opinion! Oh and that ending!!!! Wilder has set it up for a sequel series and I'm crossing all my fingers and toes that it happens. If you enjoy mystery, horror, and urban paranormal romance, I highly recommend you grab a copy.

Beautiful: Penny Ames was offered a chance at financial security all she had to do was sell her body to her boss for a year. Then her boss went and died before she ever got the chance. Then her boss’s son, Simon takes over and gives her the same offer with some exceptions’ more money and less time on the contract. Only real difference is that Penny could fall for Simon and want more than a month with him. Penny quickly realizes there is more going on that what she knows. Someone is after because she was next in line for the offer from Simon’s father and they think she knows something. Will Simon be able to keep her safe? Will Penny be able to keep her heart safe from Simon?
Collateral: Sosie is taken by the Vampire Mafia to pay for the mistakes of her father. She must survive in their house however her focus soon turns towards the brothers. J.M. and Sebastien both interest Sosie just in different ways. Sebastien seems to want her back however J.M. makes her feel something that both scares and excites her. Sebastien is warm and caring; J.M. is blunt and a bit scary. As things continue Sosie is forced to look at her loyalties to her family. Her father doesn’t care about what happens to her just where he gets his next fix. J.M. protects her as best he can even when he could get hurt himself.
Vengeful: Beau has been kidnapped and tortured. He thinks death is just a punch away and then Francesca Slight comes in the room. She is the daughter of his family’s sworn enemy. She isn’t treated any better by her family than Beau is. Beau knows the moment he hears her voice that she is it for him. He must save them both. Bellamy (Beau’s twin) is frustrated with the lack of information pertaining to her brother and goes to find some herself. While doing so she witnesses someone murdered. The man had just tried to save her and so she does the only thing she can and bites him; finding out afterward that he is a cowboy. What will happen now?
Each book flows very well into the next one. I was hooked right away and couldn’t wait to read what happened next. I would love to read more about these characters in the future. The characters are so real and jump off the page at you. These books have romance, mystery, suspense, and more. I highly recommend this box set. I like the last book the best. Everyone comes together and I must say Beau and Bellamy’s stories are my favorite of the couples. Followed by Sosie and J.M.. I look forward to reading more by A.M. Wilder in the future.
