About the Author
Lynn Rush holds a psychology degree from Southwest Minnesota State University and a master's degree in Mental Health Therapy from the University of Iowa. Her experience as a former Addictions Therapist and competitive athlete lends to stories about complex heroines and the men who dare to love them.
Growing up in the land of 10,000 lakes and cold, snowy winters, Lynn has been known to weave a little of that cool Minnesota climate into her stories, but these days, she much prefers desert living. She resides in Phoenix, Arizona with her husband, and when she's not busy writing her next trilogy, she can be found pounding the pavement, training for her next endurance event.

Emma and Jake are two similar characters who are attending the same college. When I say similar I mean eerily similar, but from the second they lay eyes on each other the attraction they share is impossible to resist. Ah but the kicker to the story you ask? They both are keeping secrets that hardly leave time for a relationship. Technically this story would classify as "insta love" but I think it was done right and not over the top.
I really like the character of Emma, she is kind of a bad *ss chick. I mean she is kicking butt left and right and having her butt kicked left and right. Yet she keeps going back for more, Emma is no damsel in distress and for that Lynn Rush I thank you. I also really enjoyed Jake and his development in this story. You literally see Jake's character form right before your very eyes. The fact that Jake is hot only adds to how much I enjoyed his character.
Oh! What? How dare I talk about a YA character that way? No worries cougars the characters in this story have an age range in their twenties, mid twenties to be exact. Which brings me to another part of this story I liked; I am an older college student so I really loved the fact that the characters were older. Although maturity wise they still seemed like younger characters. I have noticed in these New Adult novels the characters are only like eighteen, so this was a nice change up.
My favorite part of this story is most certainly the action. I loved the fight scenes and the unfolding mystery that looms on the pages of Violet Midnight. I was desperate trying to put the pieces together of what was going to happen. No worries I won't tell you, you are going to have to pick up this story and find out for yourself.
I recommend this book to mature YA readers and lovers of Paranormal Romance.
I'm not much for long reviews, so I'll list three things I absolutely loved about this novel:
1. Jake and Emma's relationship. Their feelings for each other grew with each passing page, and it didn't seem forced. They share an easy camaraderie and work well as a team.
2. The action. Hello. My favorite part of Lynn Rush novels.
3. The original mythos--complex, yet easy to get absorbed in. Well done!
I'm ready for the sequel! :)
From the start this story catches you in its thrall, raising your blood flow - your heart rate and your blood pressure with the kick arse action scenes written. It will have you on the edge of your seat gazing into the pages at a vampire - hunter story that is of course is very unique. A romance - paranormal genre with the new adult concept blended throughout, this story is certainly a great start to an engaging new series.
I must say that personally I enjoy a kick ass heroine; Emma is strong, and not demanding. Caring and selfless , and determined to find her way in the new world of vampires that she has discovered. Her abilities gifted to her give her strength within herself, and a way to deal with the loss of loved ones.
The supporting characters were equally well written, living in the world amongst the dead unbeknown to what really goes bump in the night. Lynn Rush's storyline was great and certainly lays down a strong foundation for future stories; however from the ending of this you have to wander what adventure she will take us on next. I certainly can't wait!
I read this in almost one sitting; I was hooked within the first pages till I had turned the last page. Lynn Rush always captivates me with her writing, her stories are always unique, well detailed and easily envisaged and I immensely enjoy the characters that she scripts.
I was able to connect with the characters and submerge myself within the story, something that for me is important when reading.
Moments where you will be gasping for air with Emma and other moments you will be thinking OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NOT...... (( grins )) you must read it to find out !
Jake and Emma's romance is sizzling - I really enjoyed the new adult concept and I can't wait to see what these vampire hunters get up to in the next instalment. ** I personally would love Jake as my personal light bulb ** grins... His character was certainly put forth well with strength and determination of a Hunter. All the unique characteristics that Lynn has put forth with her Hunters were certainly riveting and refreshing. Something I can always expect from this author!
A fantastic start to a new series - Violet Midnight is such an appropriate title and the cover is just stunning!
