Synopsis

VENGEANCE WILL BE HERS

Allison Sekemoto once struggled with the question: human or monster?

With the death of her love, Zeke, she has her answer.

MONSTER

Allie will embrace her cold vampire side to hunt down and end Sarren, the psychopathic vampire who murdered Zeke. But the trail is bloody and long, and Sarren has left many surprises for Allie and her companions—her creator, Kanin, and her blood brother, Jackal. The trail is leading straight to the one place they must protect at any cost—the last vampire-free zone on Earth, Eden. And Sarren has one final, brutal shock in store for Allie.

In a ruined world where no life is sacred and former allies can turn on you in one heartbeat, Allie will face her darkest days. And if she succeeds, triumph is short-lived in the face of surviving forever alone.

~*~*~*~REVIEW~*~*~*~

three-half-stars

A great ending to a fantastic series

Jackal continued to wow me. He’s so witty, funny, sarcastic, and possibly the best written multilayered character I’ve ever read.

…impaled vampire, who was barely holding himself up by clinging to the pole through his stomach….

“Why did you do it?” I asked

“Sorry, sis. Hard to think…right now. Slight…stomach-ache.”

He always tried to put on a bad-ass facade but deep down he still had his humanity intact. I think Kanin should had given him another chance. He’s definitely the highlight of this book, as is with book 2. I think he deserves his own spin-off, or at least another book with him as the supporting character.

Allison was a bit whiny sometimes, and I agreed with other people’s opinion that there is a Allison 2.0 here. But, to me it was understandable and not done too out of hand.

The story was great but plot wise it wasn’t as complex or as intriguing as book 2. Action, though, this one definitely out weighted the last. From start to finish, the rabids just kept on coming, never giving them a moment peace. If you like zombies movies, you’d definitely love this one. The details that she put into the story was gritty, gruesome, and bloody.

I didn’t slow down. Drawing my katana, I met the rabid head-on, slashing through its bony chest even as we collided and it sank curved talons into my shoulder. It clung to me, ripping and clawing even though its lower half was gone. Snarling, I threw it off and kept running. More rabids blocked our passage, and we cut our way though, ignoring the claws that ripped at us, dodging the teth snapping at our necks. A rabid sank its fangs into my sleeve, barely missing my skin, and I tore it free impatiently, pausing only to slice the thing’s legs out from under it.

And the ending, I loved it even though it’s bittersweet.
