Grave New Day is book 3 in the vampire hunter series. You do not have to read any of the others to read this, you would be able to start right in. The main character is a female vampire that hunts vampires. She had a great partner but he is now missing. I don't want to write more on that do to spoilers. She has a bounty on her head from other vampires and there is plenty of action. She meets a strange man with incredible abilities. Once she finds her partner, he has strange powers. Together they must fight the oldest of the vampires to save their closest friends. I can't say much here so it sounds dull but trust me, it is so filled with excitement. The characters are well developed, plot is action packed, twists and turns, surprises everywhere, and a little romance in the mix. The book never gets dull. I read book 2 and 3 in one sitting. You will want to read this series! I reviewed this book for NetGalley.
Jess is lost, heartbroken. Britt is gone. Prometheus drained him in the last book. Even though his body has disappeared she is still having a funeral for him. After the graveside service Jess meets a man in the cemetery that says he is a friend of Britt’s. Not was, is, and he wants to be friends with Jess. He says his name is Zeke. She doesn’t believe him... Jess goes to check on her friends James, Terry and their adopted daughter Sephina, but what she finds is a house full of vampires. And her friends missing. She’s fighting them off when she gets some help, from Britt??? Impossible, he’s dead, but his body did disappear. But… Britt has amnesia. Doesn’t know who he is and who Jess is and what they meant to each other. But Britt has changed, he larger more muscular. So what happened to Britt to change him??? This book was so engaging, I couldn’t put it down. The whole story pieces are starting to come together. I recommend this series because it’s so not like other vampire books. The vampires are dark and evil. No goodness in them at all, and although Jess herself is a vampire, she has some humanity due to her brother Father Regent who prays for her every day to keep the darkness at bay. I was gifted a copy of this book by NetGalley for an honest review.
Grave New Day, (Jess Vandermire, Vampire Hunter Book 3), Lina Gardiner Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre: Romance, Sci-fi and Fantasy Well, I hadn’t read book one, enjoyed book two, though with some reservations and was keen to get to this one. Sadly for me there’s one major flaw that makes it a three star. Its well written as was book two, full of great characters and fun plots but – and its a huge issue for me – I hate when characters get some unheard of mysterious new powers right at the moment they need them :-( This book is really based so much on that happening, it occurs in one of the characters throughout, and to Jess at one point. (I didn’t Jess’ choice quite as the description suggests, but it does make her think about what she needs to be for herself v what she needs to be to continue to fight for others. ) I like to see characters fight it out, winning by the skin of their teeth using the powers and skills we already know about. To me getting new ones just when needed is a cop out. Its a personal issue and one many readers aren’t bothered about, they simply accept it and enjoy the story, but sadly I can’t. It impact in a major way how I feel about things. This was the problem that didn’t make for a great read for me. I did like that there was a continuation of a storyline that was left open at the end of the last book, something really sad happened but was left so that maybe, just maybe there could be some good come from it. Its kind of hard to write without giving things away, but I do love it when it gets this result. I love Regent, he’s so loyal to Jess, worked so hard over the years and still the Church gives him grief, but of course they don’t know, can’t know what he’s been doing. He’s such a strong Christian, so unwavering in his faith and I love that he answers to God only, not the church officials...well, that’s how he seems to me anyway. Jess as always is a puzzle, so strong, almost cold appearing on the outside and yet inside she’s such a moral, do the right thing, always person trying to save everyone from evil. Her friends though know her true side, and I really admire her. She’s had a tough life but worked hard to make the best of it despite the cost to herself. I didn’t like the idea of – I’ve forgotten his name, Kier? – who kept popping up just when needed. I guess that relates to my dislike of the new powers things too....It was just too timely, too convenient. It wasn’t him as a character I disliked, just the way he worked in the story. It was an interesting and unusual storyline but for me the way it played out just didn’t work. Stars: Three, a good storyline but the way it worked out irritated me at times.
