Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Gleason's latest in the Gardella Vampire Chronicles picks up a year after Rises the Night. Victoria Gardella is mourning her husband, Lord Rockley, and eager to get back to work as a venator. She becomes aware of a plot by the demon Akvan to break through the Door of the Alchemists and steal valuable secrets that will bring him to full power. Complicating matters is the return of venator Maximilian Pesaro, still in thrall to Lilith and determined to break free. Sebastian Vioget, ally of both Victoria and his vampire grandfather Beauregard, has a secret that will change the balance of power. And all three, none of whom trust each other very much, must band together to stop Akvan. The chemistry between Sebastian and Victoria is palpable, and Max is given a level of depth lacking in previous installments. Gleason, who ends the book on a cliffhanger, is really on a roll. (Feb.)

    Awesome

    Each book just keeps getting better. This series is definitely one of my favorite. I really enjoy the romance between Sebastian and Victoria because its like a passion unwanted because of trust, not because of a persons inner demon or something of that nature. I don't understand why this series is not as popular as others from the penguin books because these books are really damn good and deserve a little more attention. I recommend this series if you like the night huntress books and others of my recommendations.

    Like a Fine Wine, This Series Keeps Getting Better.

    I love this series. In this latest book, The Bleeding Dusk, Victoria is still in Rome, recovering from the death of her Aunt and she is now the leader of the city's vampires hunters. Victoria is still hunting and slaying vampires when she finds that a demon is among them and is allied with the vampires. She reunites with Sebastian for help, still not sure if she can trust him or not, after all he is the Grandson of a Vampire. Max returns, another Vampire Slayer, but he is still in thrall to Lilith, the vampire queen. With the help of Max, as well as Sebastian, Victoria attempts to destroy the demons plot. There are a lot of surprises in this book. Victoria starts to fall under the thrall of Sebastian's Grandfather, Victoria desires Sebastian. This book moves along at a fast pace and is action packed, the ending keeps you on the edge of your seat. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

    Pretty damn good

    This book gets better and better. I dont honestly know why they would place this book in romance because it is not the conventional romance novel more like science fiction or horror. The only qualm I have with the book is that the girl protagonist doesnt do much in this book and Max keeps on being the hero but the poor guy gets no play. Another good thing about the novel is that it makes you like both Max and Sebastian as leading men.

    want to sink their teeth into this complex entertaining tale

    One year has past since the events in RISES THE NIGHT. Victoria Gardella Grantworth de Lacy still mourns her loss, but feels it is past time to move on although she will always cherish her late husband, Lord Rockley. Her plan is to return to her duties as a venator and as the leader of Rome¿s vampire populace.----------- Victoria learns that the demon Akvan plans to cross the plains via the Door of the Alchemists in order to steal the confidential secrets they hide Akvan believes he will find what he needs there and become too powerful to stop. Meanwhile Victoria¿s venator peer Maximilian Pesaro wants to help her, but he belongs to Lilith. To defeat Akvan, Victoria needs help from Sebastian Vioget and his vampiric grandfather Beauregard, but none of the trio trusts any of the others and Maximilian, whom she feels she needs to trust, remains a wild card as he must do Lilith¿s bidding.--------------- The vampiric triangle of Victoria, Sebastian and Max is complex and filled with depth as desire and distrust attract and detract each of them. Victoria struggles with her feelings especially can she depend on either male when she confronts Akvan. Fans of Colleen Gleason's Gardella Vampire Chronicles will want to sink their teeth into this complex entertaining chapter of the saga.--------------- Harriet Klausner

    Very good book.

    Again I agree with the previous reviewer: I'm suprised that this serie isn't more "Popular". These are very good books! And on this third one, Victoria is becoming aware of...her feelings??!! so many up and down, now I'm split, you'll need to read the book to know what I'm talking about. Still kicking actions, bad A.. Victoria. Moving on to next book!
