Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
This is book six of the “children of the night” series. I've not read earlier ones, but its not difficult to pick up the general theme. It's clear from the way this novel is set out some of the events that have passed in earlier books. I like the idea of “born” vampires, Derek was perfect in his role and I felt the attraction between him and Sheree. Mara and Logan too were realistic characters. So why wasn't this book a hit for me? Well, somehow it just felt too “light”, too clichéd almost, with warring Hunters and Vampires, a blossoming romance between human Sheree and vampire royalty almost Derek, and the two dotty, elderly scientist sisters popping up all over the place. Each time something happened it was over with so quickly that the event almost passed without notice. There was some humour too, that could have been fun but that just didn't work for me. Maybe I just need my vampires deep, dark and dangerous, and plots that are more involved and intriguing. This novel just felt too easy to read for me, I seemed to guess what was going to happen when I want to be surprised at the turns in plot. As always – I’m just one reader, and everyone wants different things from their reading.
If you're looking for an easy to follow story, with characters that fit the plots, and aren't worried about the lack of overall depth in plot of people then this book may well appeal. For me though I need a bit more. Of course for those that are following the series as a whole, and who will of course enjoy this style of writing this will be a perfect wrap. At £3.72 for 336 pages, its a decent length and well priced for the genre. Just shame its not my kind of read.
Stars: two and a half. A well written book that just didn't engage me.

Vampires are an obsession for Sheree west and night after night she immerses herself in L.A.’s goth club scene searching for a legend who lives in the shadows not just her dreams. Derek Blackmore is no ordinary vampire and everything Sheree ever wished for – and more, but something wild has been unleashed in Derek. Something dangerous, something no vampire can control or stop… even for the woman he loves.
This steady to fast paced plot sends shivers up the spine with delicious romance, suspense and a sexy vampire. The author brings the life to each and every scene with vivid imagery and details that draw the readers and make them feel like they are part of the story. The characters are bewitching with strong presence that grab the reader’s attention and keeps it to the very end.
The attraction between Sheree and Derek leaps off the pages, the sex scenes sizzle with passion, and the romance sends sparks flying with emotional turmoil and conflict. The author makes it easy for the reader to get emotionally involved in the characters with her well written scenes and vibrant descriptions of their lives. The Queen of Vampires describes Sheree as “Honest of Heart” a description that fits her well as she seems to be strong but innocent when it comes to Derek and vampires while being just a little too “wishy washy” when it comes to herself and what she wants.
The emotional drama and personal conflict that Derek must endure adds spice and depth to the story and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat with anticipation to see how the issue is resolved.Read more ›
