American Vampire

Quick Plot Run Through.......

Samantha Moon is a Former FBI gone freelance all because she was attacked 6 years ago and turned Vamp.  Not that she would admit it, the world thinks she has a rare condition that keeps her out of the sun.  All except her crazy ex-husband who cheated with his secretary and is now keeping her kids away from her using her vampiness as blackmail. 
As if that isn't enough Sam got a crazy phone call from a little girl being held hostage in need of saving, Fang her chat room love wants to finally meet, Kingsley her Ware love wants some nookie and she has cobwebs it's been so long and her Son is sick and only she can cure him or curse him.

My Thoughts.....

I dig this series I read all three books in two days.  Maybe because I am a Mom and so is she.  I can feel her pain when it comes to her kids.  That do anything attitude that Sam carries.  Even though I think I would have been a wee bit bitchier when it came to the ex-husband.  She gives him way to much control.  She is a vampire with kick ass abilities hello use that vampy mojo to convince him to do what you want.  Maybe as the stories progress she will grow into herself a bit more.  On to Kingsley, he's cool in that dark wolfy way but he totally gets off on helping out sickos.  Strike one,two,three in my book.  Then there is Fang the confidant with his own issues.  In a vamps world there are just no good choices in the love department!
I can't wait for the next book just to find out what she decides in regards to her son.  This decision could save her world or end it.  Want to know what I am talking about?  To bad you must read to find out. 

In the end I say this is a good read and a great read for the maternal instinct!

Hit List

A Quick Plot Run Through..........

To local law enforcement there is a serial killer on the loose.  Not to Anita Blake and fellow US Marshal Ted Forrester AKA Edward.  They know it is the Harlequin, a secrete Vampire Force over a thousand years old.  Just saying their name is a death sentence.  Especially since they are not working alone the Mother of All Darkness is pulling their strings. Mommy Dearest only wants one thing, to take over Anita's body killing all that are in her path.  It's up to Anita and Edward to figure out how to catch they-who-can-not-be-named and destroy The Mother of All Darkness once and for all. 

My Thoughts........

I love love love Anita Blake!  This was in my opinion one of the best books in the Series.  Anytime Edward is on the scene you are guaranteed a great book.  Anita is growing into herself and it has been so cool to ride through all the changes with her.  She had alot to deal with this time around Mommy Dearest, Pig headed Federal Marshall's, a psycho that wants to love her up in that bloody sort of way, feeding the ardeur, and just being away from home.  This book was kick ass from the first page to the last.  The only disappointment was knowing I have to wait a while to drink the next one down!

Smooches to Laurell K Hamilton!  This is why she is a #1 NY Times bestselling author!

Quick Plot Run Through.......

Eve Duncan world class forensic sculpter is on a journey to find her daughter Bonnie's killer.  She has exaughsted almost every avenue in past stories.  Serial killer Paul Black the last suspect on Eve's list is hot on her trail. Then her friend Cathrine has found a new suspect Bonnie's father John Gallo.  The catch is, Eve thought that he died in the military.

This opened a flood gate of memories.....causing some tension in her push pull relationship with Joe Quinn.

Will Eve finally bring Bonnie home?  Will she lose Joe?  Will she survive?

My Thoughts.....

I have given years to Eve Duncan.  This story gave me a even better appriciation for her strength and determination.   We get a real glace at Eve's past frankly what makes Eve, Eve.  We also get to met Bonnie's conflicted Father.  I enjoyed the ride thoroughly.  I will say that Joe quinn gets on my nerves.  I get he loves Eve whole-heartedly but I so would not be able to deal with such an over bearing personality.  I don't know maybe in July's Joe Quinn novel I will gain a new apprication but I doubt it.  So I say, Iris Johanssen delivers as normal!  I don't think you will ever hear me give her a bad review.
