Book Description

Beneath evil and destruction lies truth… and eternal passion

Soldier Cole Granger fights to restore peace to a world divided by war and evil. Enlisted for his extraordinary talents, nothing will stop him from preventing a horrific premonition from becoming reality…especially not a mysterious young woman claiming to be his comrade’s sister.

Unsure if she’s enemy or ally, Cole knows only one thing for certain – he must keep her close. Very close. Megan’s quest to uncover a family secret leads her to the centre of vampire riots.

She must join forces with Cole to find the answers, but they can’t disguise the potent attraction drawing them together. Yet trust doesn’t come easily for Cole and when Megan unearths the grim, dark truth, can she trust him to believe her?

3.0 out of 5 stars Night of the Vampires 3 Oct. 2011
By Jasmyn9 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Most of us know how deadly and devastating the civil war is. Now try to imagine it even worse. With a third enemy that doesn't care which side of the war you are on. If you are human, then you're fair game. There is a pestilence that is ravaging the land, both North and South, and that pestilence is an army of savage vampires that seem intent on wiping out the human race all together. Only a select few realize the truth behind the strange deaths. Most choose to believe that it is some strange new disease that is highly contagious.

Megan Fox is different. She knows the truth. In fact, half of her is the truth. She is half vampire and has managed to retain control of her hunger and kept her soul. She is on the hunt to eliminate the vampires that have turned to pure evil. Along the way she finds her half-brother, another like her, that also hunts the vampires with a group of his friends, and has been for years.

One of these friends is Cole Granger, a Texas sheriff that has not taken any sides in the Civil War. Apparently Texas has too much to deal with - outlaws, Indians, and vampires. Word of a large outbreak of this "disease" in a military prison brings them East and into the very heart of the Civil War. Cole finds it difficult to trust Megan at first. After all, he's only met one other half-vampire before and tends to hold to the kill it before it can kill you mentality.

As the death count rises and more and more vampires are brought back, Megan struggles with her rising feelings for Cole and strives to earn his trust. But can they learn to trust each other and work together in time? The scales are tipping, and it's not in favor of the humans.

This story had quite a nice twist on traditional vampire historical fiction novels. Since the war is taking place, it's very easy for unexplained deaths to be blamed on wounds received in the field. And with so many being buried away from home, who is there to notice that the dead aren't staying put. The characters of Megan and Cole were very well written. Neither one really trusted the other, with good reason, for quite awhile. Their relationship grew in a very realistic way, even if it did progress rather quickly. The downfall of Megan's character is that she is obsessed with the search for her father, a full vampire, and her search puts many in danger time and time again. It just seemed like she never learned and grew.

3/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Comedy and Horror 27 May 2012
By Coffee Addicted Writer's Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Set during the Civil War, dead soldiers are coming back to life, but not as humans. They are now vampires. Because of the chaos of the war, the vampires are using this to their advantage. They are feeding upon the innocent citizens of the United States.

There is a secret group of soldiers lead by Cole Granger that fights the creatures of the night. Along with him is Cody Fox, a half-vampire, soldier. During a bloody battle, they come across a young woman, Megan Fox. She claims to be Cody's half-sister. They try to work together to stop the undead from feeding.

I didn't realize that Night of the Vampires was set during the Civil War. By the cover I would say it was during modern times. The main female character is named Megan Fox. I laughed out loud when I read this, thinking of the actress. I have a few paperbacks somewhere of Heather Graham that I haven't gotten around to reading. I like the idea of vampires during the Civil War, but there times that I thought the author was telling instead of showing. At times the dialogue is a bit cheesy and unrealistic for the time-period. But for some odd reason, I still liked the book. I think the author meant for this to be a realistic novel, but I can easily see this being turned into a horror-comedy feature film. If you like reading about vampires, then I recommend you checking this out.

1.0 out of 5 stars What Happened to Graham? 22 Mar. 2011
By Randi Morse - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I used to be a HUGE fan of Heather Graham. I remember reading through all of the books of hers that I could when I was in high school. She had great male characters, and good female characters as well.

But in the last few years the Heather Graham books that I've read haven't been anywhere near as good as her previous ones. I thought that maybe it was because the books that I'd read written by her were not historical works, but were contemporary. So when I got the chance to read Night of the Vampires, I had a huge hope that this book would be better because it was Graham doing a historical work.

PROS:

Vampires, yay, it's about vampires. Just like every other book there is. Actually the reason why I'm putting vampires under the pro section is because she has a unique take on vampires - that there are "good" vampires and bad ones. And it's interesting to try to figure out if Megan's father is a good vampire, or not.

CONS:

Vampires. PLEASE! Can we get rid of the vampires stories for a little while?!

Actually this entire book was very, well, blah. I can see what Graham was going after - having characters who were in the middle of a huge battle against vampires. But? Couldn't get into it. Unfortunately I believe that Graham needs to get a different editor or a different muse or something, because all of hte recent books of hers I've read have not been anywhere near as enjoyable as I remember her older books being.

RATING: Buy from the used bin. It's something you could read in the summer on the beach if you have nothing better to enjoy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just couldn't get into it 17 Feb. 2011
By Dinakar Sarma - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I tried to read this one, and kept an open mind, but I just couldn't get into it. It just dragged feet a bit, and nothing really happened for too long. The prologue did catch my attention. It starts off with a sort of flashback to where this lady wanted out from her stifling society, and how this handsome stranger came in, and felt a connection. Then, the story starts, and we hear nothing about that initial relationship. Instead, we're in the "present", which is roughly American Revolutionary War times. Something something long lost sister, something something half vampires. It just dragged along like a Jane Austen novel.
3.0 out of 5 stars My rating for this was up in the air, between a 2 or a 3, so I went with 3 26 Jun. 2014
By Eskimo PrincessAlisa (Jenkins) - Published on Amazon.com

My rating for this was up in the air, between a 2 or a 3, so I went with 3. And there are several reasons for this.
*I felt like I was reading a History text book for majority of the book. I love Historical Romance novels, but this was insane.
*Two of the main characters in the beginning were similarly named and it was very confusing. A Huge turn off if I have to stop and think of who is who because the author can't think of a name that is different. I know Cole and Cody are not that similar but its close enough and way too confusing.

Now, I did love all the characters. Cole: very cocky and arrogant. Megan: very defensive, which very understandable. Lissette: a total Bitch all the way to the end.
I love historical facts in my books, but I felt this book went overboard- made it feel like you were reading a textbook throughout the majority of the book. But once Megan and Cole left DC to go to Harpers Ferry on a mission, the book took a better turn. Once the couple arrived in Harpers Ferry, I was hooked. Cole and Megan made a great team. And I just happen to be from Harpers Ferry, it made reading this so cool because I could actually see where things were taking place!
But once in Harpers Ferry, I do not recommend reading during storms, or power outages, especially if you live near Harpers Ferry like I do. LOL
Once Cole and Megan were in Harpers Ferry, all kinds of action was happening. But don't expect lots of sex or explicit parts in the story. There is just brief mentions of sex. Personally, I would have taken out so much of the Textbook material and added a little bit more steamy scenes.
This books contains:
voilence, politics, suspense, vampires, and lots of historical facts
