How much trouble can a night out dancing cause?
Hidden away in an idyllic cottage in Brittany, Rae was counting on finally getting some peace to contemplate life as a vampire, and the chance to let her shattered heart heal.
But Pretty One Layla is bored, and Chameleon Brian is lonely.
Trouble is brewing, but Rae is oblivious.
A visit from the charming and dangerous Lady Abigail is the last thing they need. Rae’s questions about the origins of vampires are about to be answered, in the most awful way.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
I absolutely loved Chole Hammond’s first book in this series which seemed to bring to life a more realistic vampire community than I have read about before. I would say that as this is a series do read book one first to get the background on the main characters, although it is briefly gone over in this book.
Rae is settling in pretty well as her talent is taken under control by her but a couple of the group are restless. What takes place jeopardises the whole group with a knock on the door bringing the indiscretion further into the light and puts the small group of friends in danger of exposure with the council.
The arrival of one of the original vampires has a devastating effect on the whole group. I was mesmerised by the story of the beginning of the original group but throw a bit of crazy in there mixed with a power-hungry tyrant and you really have a massive problem. There are massive shocks in this book that took me by surprise.
The vampires may be the living dead but they certainly have a lot of living to do yet. Simply can’t wait to get to book three to see the final conclusion to this brilliant series.
I wish to thank the author Chole Hammond for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
HERE IS A LITTLE ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Chloe Hammond is an Aquarius, very Aquarius. Born in Liverpool in 1975, she grew up in West Wales, but now lives in Barry in South Wales, with her husband and rescue cats and dogs. She always wanted to write, but life got in the way. Last year she was diagnosed with extreme anxiety and depression, which caused nightmares and sleepless nights. In her typically contrary way she used this to her advantage and the nightmares became this novel, and the sleeplessness nights were when she found time to write it.
She has a lovely sea view from her desk, which she gazes at to still her mind so her characters can burst forth and have their say. This is her first novel, but Rae and Layla are demanding book two and three in the trilogy are written as soon as possible, they have adventures to live.
