More About This Book

Overview

The Pacific Northwest . . . home to lush forests and constant rain, to lumberjacks and computer geeks, especially those of the vampire kind.

Sophia, beautiful and deadly, has spent the last hundred years dancing her way through the balmy nights and hot-blooded men of South America. But when her Sire sends an urgent summons, Sophia rushes home to Vancouver only to find he has disappeared, leaving nothing behind but three dead vampires and a letter with Sophia's name on it.

Colin Murphy, a former Navy SEAL, came to the Northwest seeking a quiet place to heal the scars earned in more than a decade at war. But when someone starts killing local vampires and torturing their mates, Colin takes on the mantle of a warrior once again as he sets out to find the killers and do whatever it takes to stop them, even if that means hunting with vampires.

Following her Sire's trail of death to a small town in northern Washington, Sophia unexpectedly discovers the heat of a South American night in Colin's arms. But too soon Sophia and Colin find themselves in a race to uncover the killers before the next dead vampire becomes Sophia herself.

    Excelent storytelling

    Her sire Lucien urgently orders Sophia to come to Vancouver. She leaves her home in Rio immediately and flies to Toronto where she connects on flight to Vancouver, British Columbia. There Lucien's lieutenant in name only Darren informs her that their sire has vanished, but left behind an explanatory letter and a picture of three murdered vampires for her.

    Former Navy SEAL Colin Murphy works security in Cooper's Rest, just north of Seattle. Over a decade ago, he and Sophia were lovers. He learns that someone is murdering vampires and torturing their mates. He and Sophia unite to end the psychopath's killing spree. Coming to the Pacific Northwest from Malibu also seeking the murderer is Vampire Lord Raphael accompanied by his mate Cyn. Raphael is raging as two of the dead vampires (Marco and Preston) are his offspring. The four team up as a predator must be stopped.

    Besides the return of stars from the previous Vampires in America urban fantasy (see Raphael, Jabril and Rajmund), Sophia is a refreshing Undead as she is confident in her power, but instead of being Lucien's lieutenant prefers her layback lifestyle in South America (or does she?). Her only weakness is courageous Colin who is human but not afraid to confront danger or vampires; especially a Brazilian beauty. With a strong whodunit and several surprising twists, readers will relish the latest entry though perhaps the series title should now be Vampires in the Western Hemisphere as D.B. Reynolds has started to go global.

    I was rather worried that I wouldn't enjoy a romance book where the girl is the powerful vampire, but I really did like this one! It helps that our main characters from book 1 & 2 are present through much of this book, but Sophia's a great character and Colin is totally his own man and holds his own in a room full of powerful vamps. This is such a great series! I love the characters, plot, action, vampire politics, oh heck everything, LOL (oh yes, and the steamy sex too! - though unlike some vampire romance novels, this one doesn't force the steamy parts into every crevice of the book - it's definitely a romance, but there's PLOT and the girl doesn't helplessly fall for the guy, nor is she completely stupid in her rebuttal of him). Make sure you read the books in order! While it's not strictly necessary, each one does build on the characters introduced in previous books (specially the couple introduced in books 1 & 2, they're our gateway to all the other books and often have very integral rolls in all the other books).

    My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!!
    ***Received ebook from Belle Books for an honest review

    The cover has recently had a makeover and it looks awesome :)  very sexy :)

    Okay I loved this books as much as the first 3 :)  D.B. is an awesome writer :)  I can imagine being there with everything happening.  She is very descriptive.  

    I was excited because Cyn, Raphael, and his crew were all back in this book with a few new characters to love too (Sophia and Colin).  Of course there were bad guys and action galore :)  I never want to put these books down when I read them :)  Some things happened that made me yell Noooooo, but I won’t give it away.  What would be the fun of that ;) it is your journey to enjoy :)  Cyn is still head strong and getting into trouble and Raphael is trying to protect her from herself…lol  I didn’t like Sophia at first, but after she started interacting with Colin and you got back story, I liked her much better :)  She seemed more personable.  I thought she was uppity and wanted to slap her at first :) Colin is awesome, and I hope to see both of them again :)

    I highly recommend this book and series to anyone who likes vampire romance and lots of action :)  Time to pick a new book to read :)…I’m thinking the next book in the series :)

    The fourth book in the Vampires in America keeps the reader on the edge of their seat.
    The beautiful and deadly Sophia has spent the last 100 years dancing her way through the balmy nights and hot-blooded men. Her Sire sends an urgent summons and Sophia returns home to find that he has disappeared, three dead vampires and letter with her name on it.  A former Navy SEAL, Colin Murphy takes on the mantle of warrior once again when someone starts killing local vampires and torturing their mates. Following her Sire’s trail of death, Sophia unexpectedly spends the night in Colin’s arms, but they both soon find themselves in a race to uncover the killers, before Sophia is the next dead vampire. 
    This fast paced plot gets the adrenalin pumping with lots of action, suspense and romance.  The author describes every scene with vivid imagery and detail that captures the imagination and makes the reader feel as if they are part of the story.  The bewitching characters have strong charismatic personalities that are easily related to and leave the reader wanting to know more.
    The sex scenes in the book are hot and steamy and leave the reader scorching. There is plenty of romance with Colin and Sophia which is complicated by their past adding depth and emotional turmoil, but the story is spiced up even more with Cyn and Raphael’s explosive romance as well.
    The intriguing story line keeps the reader guessing with a few surprises that the reader doesn’t see coming. Once I started reading it, there was no way to put the book down until I finished the last page. I love that the original characters from the first book is still a major part of the series and how each book not only includes them but brings in more wonderful vampires and humans and give them their stories as well.  So far I have loved each and every one these books and so far and I can’t wait to read the next one.

    I immediately had to dive into this book because of the cliffhan

    I immediately had to dive into this book because of the cliffhanger in the epilogue of Rajmund. Thankfully it wasn’t as bad as I thought. Raphael was crying blood tears because he felt two of his children, people he’s turned into Vampire, die. His grief is monumental but his thirst for vengeance is greater. Raphael and the gang hop a plane to Seattle to find and eliminate the ones responsible.

    Sophia flies to Vancouver at the summons of her sire. When she gets there, he is mysteriously absent but has left a letter for Sophia. The letter prompts her to find her sire and directs her search to Seattle, Raphael’s territory. After receiving permission to cross the border, Sophia is immediately escorted into the territory by Raphael’s guards. Sophia is curious about the security measures but understands them as soon as she and Raphael realize that both their missions are intertwined. 

    Colin Murphy is following up on an investigation of the rape and torture of a local vampire’s mate when his presence is requested at the Seattle vampire compound. Colin knows about vampires but he had no idea there was a hierarchy in place. His meeting with the vampire lord Raphael reveals that his investigation and Raphael’s purpose for being in Seattle are linked. Someone is killing vampires during daylight hours and Colin’s knowledge of the people and the area will be vital in helping find the humans responsible.

    While Colin is at the compound, he is shocked to see a familiar face. Sophia, a woman he met ten years ago and who he thought died in an explosion in South America. Seeing her again brings all these old feelings to the surface; love, despair, loss, and seeing her alive, burning anger. How could this woman who he’d loved so deeply pretend to be dead? Can Colin put his feelings aside and focus on finding the killers or will Sophia work her way back into his heart, and his bed?

    There was a lot of action in this story! I loved watching the mystery unfold in trying to locate the killers and Sophia’s sire. I enjoyed Sophia and Colin’s story but I really loved Raphael and Cyn’s story line. It seems their happily ever after is sometimes not so happy. The couple ended up fighting most of the book about who should protect whom. But when Cyn’s mortality handicaps her in a deadly ambush, Raphael’s rage cannot and will not be soothed.

    I love the characters and the plot. There is never a dull moment with the Vampires in America series. That being said, the author is KILLING me with these little cliffhangers in the epilogue of each book. She gives us just a taste of what’s going to happen in the next book that forces us to locate it and read right away. D.B. Reynolds is a sly one, but a damn good author. I am looking forward to reading about Raphael’s sexy second in the next installment of the series!

    "I think I might have been wrong about what the Fates were

    "I think I might have been wrong about what the Fates were telling me back then. Or maybe I just don't care anymore. You're the only man I've ever loved, Colin Murphy, and I'm tired of living without you." (Sophia)

    ******************
    Cyn: "It's good to be the king, huh?"
    Raphael: "Only if you're my queen, lubimaya."

    ***********************

    Once again, it was a pleasure to read a new book in this series and I'm excited to start with the next one! As happened before, I felt na enormous thrill when I started with "Sophia". I liked very much that the main character is a woman and her mate a human man, it's unusual that the man figure is "weaker" in a book.

    In Canada 3 vampires are murdered and Lucien, the canadian Lord is missing. Sophia, the most powerful vampire in Lucien's circle, having lived in South America for decades, goes back to Canada, responding Lucien's request. After the deaths of 2 of his vampires, Raphael travels to Seatle to find out what happened, soon realizing that the canadians and the Seatle deaths are linked. Sophia too travels to Seatle where she meets Colin, the police figure in the small town where the murders occured. Sophia and Colin are old acquaintaces, more, they were lovers a decade ago, separated when Colin thought she died in an explosion. Looking for the murderers brings danger to the vampires and humans involved, especially Cynthia, trigging Raphael's wrath.

    This was a book for Sophia and Colin, but it was also and more even, to Raphael and Cyn, this couple had a strong presence and intervened more than the other. I loved it! Cyn and Raphael became the best couple I met in the last years. The love stories and emotional and the mystery/action is so riveting it's hard to stop reading.

    The best series I met the last few years, no doubt.

    Don't let her pretty face fool you!!



    Sophia is book 4 in the Vampires in America and for lovers of the previous books in this series, Raphael in particular, Sophia's entrance and initial meeting with Raphael has the potential to make readers dislike her from the very start.
    How wrong I was.
    Sophia is on a mission, and proves to be as much a force to be reckoned with as her male counterparts. Don’t let Sophia’s striking physical presence and her stunning face fool you; she is just as ruthless and determined as any of the male Vampire Lords.
    D.B.Reynolds` Sophia is a deeply enigmatic character, with emotions she keeps closely guarded and a yearning desire for the man she thought she would never see again.
    I thoroughly recommend this next instalment in the Vampires in America, and loved that Reynolds continues to keep readers apprised of ongoing developments in Raphael and Cyn’s intense relationship too.

    This is a wonderful story in the series. This book is about Sophia and Colins. They have an interesting past and it kept me wondering what would happen next. One of the things that I enjoy about this series, is that you still hear about previous character you have grown to love!

    Check it out.

    Loved this book. Nice to see that the author made the main character a female vampire. The other books in the series were geared towards male vamps. Highly recommend this book, and the other four in the series. The characters and stories are very intense.

    GREAT SERIES OF BOOKS!!

    This is the fourth book in the series and although the title is Sophia, the book is actually about Raphael, Cynthia, Sophia and Colin, the first two commanding the plot of the book. Raphael, the Lord of Vampires, feels the death of two of is children and goes to check out what happened to them. His mate, Cynthia, hunts by day despite Raphael's objections. She teams up with Colin a local law enforcement agent who, in the past, was involved with Sophia. Sophia has returned to search for her maker after being summoned, telepathically, by him. The basic plot is a vigilante group has targetted Cynthia because they believe it will weaken Raphael. The opposite happens and after she's hurt, the vampire Lord goes hunting. For the most part, I LOVED the interaction between Cynthia and Raphael as they are characters that command your attention when together. The other parts of the story are engaging but I found myself rushing through the text to get back to the parts written for Raphael and Cynthia (I am a fan of theirs). I RECOMMEND this book to those who love vampire stories. Raphael, in my opinion, is a Master vampire bar none.
