The grave threat to the tortured race of vampires is greater than ever in Kate Baxter’s THE DARK VAMPIRE. An unforgettable, intensely emotional, and hot series for fans of J.R. Ward, Nalini Singh, Lara Adrian and Larissa Ione.
Centuries ago, the vampire race was almost destroyed. Now, salvation rests upon one – the last true vampire.
For centuries, Jenner has been plagued by the shadows of his past. Now, a newly-turned vampire, he stalks the night like a wild predator, unable to satisfy his insatiable desires. Until a beautiful vampire sets his soul on fire…
Bria is pure innocence, hidden her whole life from a merciless enemy determined to hunt her down. When things become perilous, safety comes in the form of a fearsome bodyguard – Jenner.
One fateful night, Bria is saved by her vampire protector and a blazing connection is sparked. But surrendering to the powerful call of passion means breaking free from the shackles of their pasts. And with the war against the slayers more savage than ever, they must fight to survive. For the vampire race depends on it.
This, the third book in the series is, without a doubt, the best so far. Deeply sexy, edgy and completely frustrating. And, I should add, totally addictive reading.
Kate has created a cast of characters in this series who each have their own unique personalities, desires and weaknesses, and yet have an element of commonality which engendered an impression of family and loyalty in my mind as I eased through the story.
I really enjoyed the involvement of the other characters in this story – each was necessary for the evolution of the plot, whilst never distracting from the main players in the story – Bria and Jenner.
Additionally, we were gifted tantalising teasers for what’s to come in future volumes. I, for one, can’t wait to see how the story arc unfurls.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Kate Baxter is a die-hard romantic with a thing for Shakespeare. She lives in the great northwest where she hides away to write about all things fanged, furry, and undead.
