Rises The Night

Author: Colleen Gleason
Reason for reading: For fun and because the library wants its book back
Rating: 3.5/5

Just finished compulsively reading this book. I felt... enthralled in its grip... Must not look it in the eyes...

As I explained before, romance is not my genre, but I did enjoy The Rest Falls Away by Colleen Gleason. This sequel brings us once again into the world of Victoria Gardella Grantworth de Lacy, recently widowed thanks to a powerful vampire foe. She has been practicing her skills as a vampire hunter for almost a year when she learns about a new threat that could destroy the entire world.

In between staking vampires, there is just enough time for a bit of romance with an enigmatic man she isn't sure she really trusts.

Gleason writes an interesting heroine, and she pulls twists and turns that surprised me. I found it to be an enjoyable sequel to the first book, and if you are already inclined towards paranormal romances or vampire novels, you will no doubt enjoy this book.

I will probably pick up her next book The Bleeding Dusk at some point, after I've turned my attention to other challenge books.

{Hanging head in shame} I still haven't read this series yet... but I've them all in my pile. ;)

I haven't read this series yet either but will be soon honest. Would you class it more as romance then than urban fantasy?

Debi said...

Don't know why, but I just can't seem to make myself read these. Glad you enjoyed!

melody-well when you do get to them, I'll look forward to hearing what you have to say.

rhinoa-Hmm... great question. I don't think it quite fits into the urban fantasy category too well since that makes me think more Neil Gaiman. I am not really a romance reader, but I think it does fit into more of the Regency romance type category. There are some of the stereotypically "romantic scenes" but they are kind of an accessory to the action.

debi-well don't feel forced, they are good if you are already a fan of romance or vampire novels. Plus I know you have tons of other challenge novels to read anyhow.
