Doesnt get much better than this in Vamp Land,
This review is from: Fury's Kiss (Paperback)
Karen Chance really hits the spot with this superb addition to the Dorina series. I am totally addicted to Vamp novels at the moment and this has to be, by far the best I've read in some time. Not bad for a third outing for this particular set of characters.
Nothing formulaic in the book at all. Dory is typically mad as a hatter in a super cool way. Louis Cesare is a perfect foil and the relationship between the two of them has none of the predictable mush that you often see. No drawn out love hate ups and downs here that make you wish the characters were real just so that you can punch them. (I really want to smack Ethan and Merit in the Chicagoland series).
Dorys mind says one thing and her body another, this duplicity is a really good device to move forward with the split personality business. But Dory is just a primal instinctive character who is very disingenuous and very real.
Kit Marlowe is completely knocked for six by events in this book and seeing him discombobulated alongside Dorys spontaneity is exciting. The two of them make a surprisingly good pairing. Great action.
And Raymond Lu, who would have thought he could add so much hilarity to proceedings - really super dialogue an comraderie.
What a great ending too - I read the epilogue twice in quick succession I was so satisfied. I envy my friends who have yet to start the series!
The only character that doesn't please is Mircea. Who'd have thought it. But I can't really complain given the roundedness of the rest of the characterisation. Other than that previously he had been very much a favourite.
And well done Cassie who puts in a brief appearance!!!!!
