I really liked this book. It was interesting to see what Libby would do when she found out her new client wasn't what he appeared to be. The suspense was great and now I can't wait to see what happens in book two.

I usually only write reviews for stories I liked. I was annoyed enough by this story to break the pattern. While I don't expect Libby to have super powers, I do expect some intelligence. Saying Libby is to stupid to live is being kind. The only reason there might be a sequel is that the bad guys are equally incompetent and their actions improbable.

Libby Fox is a private investigator who is struggling to make it big. As her usual cases concern cheating spouses or corrupt business partners, she is thrown for a loop when when the enigmatic Adam Ryder hires her regarding the kidnapping of sixteen year old Julie Bowman. He is adamant that the police should not be involved as the kidnappers want a rare artifact that is in the possession of Julie's father. And under no circumstances will the kidnappers walk away with the relic . . But this is the only information Adam Ryder is willing to part with.
Libby takes the intriguing case and embarks on a journey which brings her into a world she never knew existed. Vampires, vampire hunters and an ancient relic that can destroy all vampires in a heartbeat.
I really enjoyed this book. Libby is strong, independent, sarcastic and smart. When she discovers the truth about Adams' nature, she takes her own time to process everything and I really like that! Adam is handsome, loyal and fiercely protective of his family and friends. As heroes go, Adam Ryder ticks all of the boxes. A great short read that will have the reader plowing into book 2 for more. I read this trilogy as a set so before I review each book individually, here is an overview.
As book 1 and book 2 ended I kept reading on. Libby Fox is a brilliant heroine. What I loved most about her was, even though she had strong feelings for Adam, she knew she wouldn't share him with a blood donor, nor did she want to be bitten. I loved the way she visited him to remind herself that they came from different worlds. I feel this made her stay true to her character. She has been self reliant all of her life and had she u-turned without any reason, I don't think it would have fit. She is funny, sarky, brave and very likable - even when she jumps the gun.

Book 1 of the Libby Fox Trilogy: Dark Relic by Lauralynn Elliott
Private investigator Libby Fox is approached by Adam Ryder to help find a young girl who was kidnapped while in his care. And he's willing to pay a nice fee to get her back. This case changes everything Libby ever believed to be true. Vampires existed but there were others out there who are more evil. And could she fall for a man who was dead in the day and needed blood donors to survive? And what about the relic?
These books are sold separately or in one book called the Vampire's Curse, I'm glad I had the complete trilogy as I couldn't stop reading after the first book. You know more is going to happen. They are shorter books and easy reads. There is romance, but it's somewhat secondary to the suspense going on. It is all told from Libby's point of view as well.

This had a good story but I felt the characters were not very well developed. I had a hard time believing they would do the things they did--I could not figure out their motives from the small amount of background I had on each of them. I did like the main character, Libby Fox, a lot. Given time, I think her personality would be fun to get to know. The read was quick and I did end up wanting to know what would happen next and will probably buy the second book in the series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
