Glynis kicks butt! Love her. I enjoyed reading this book and thought it was a great followup from the 1st book. You get to see Glynis become her own woman and grow to become a powerful vampire. *possible spoiler -I do hope there is more to the story cause I doubt Vlad would give up. He is just evil and i feel he would seek his revenge.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

After the intense ride of The Tale Of The Vampire Bride, it was a
welcome relief to relax (a little) as Lady Glynis embraces her role as
Countess Dracula and begins to unfurl her plans to exact revenge on all
those that made her life, um, HELL in the first book. And even though
this second book in the Vampire Bride series is a tad bit lighter, I
could not walk away from this one for longer than maybe a pee-break or
two. I was seriously camped out on the couch with snacks and drink
surrounding me for the duration. Where the first book focused on
Glynis, Vlad and the brides, Vengeance takes off and adds some really
fantastic characters. I’m actually amazed that Ms. Frater could add so
many characters to a story and not one of them got lost in the story nor
made the story feel overwhelmed and without plot. Each and every
character had a role in the story. Some I wanted to see more than
others (Ahem, Ignatius!) Some less than others (oh, Katya, what are we
going to do with you?) And some just left me wondering what they’re
going to do next and why are they there (Percy?). My favorites? It
would have to be Adem and Magda, with Laura coming up a close third.
Next, I absolutely love where Frater has taken her Vampire Bride world
in this sequel. Instead of having to spend her time introducing her
world to the reader, Ms. Frater takes the opportunity to use all her
characters to build up a new “supernatural” world for Glynis to
assimilate into. While we learn about this new world with Glynis,
Glynis struggles with her identity and figuring out who she can trust.
If that wasn’t enough, she still has to enact her plans for revenge and
get her love, Ignatius, back into her life. And because Glynis knows
very little about vampire law or protocol, she’s going to make mistakes
along the way, which only ups the excitement. Add in the cranky fallen
angel Astir and the brother/sister House of Gavril and Frater works her
writing magic up to the astonishing ending that had me gasping
(seriously, I was gasping!) for more! Notice I’ve said nothing about
the plot? No spoilers here, sorry! You’re probably wondering why I
only gave Vengeance a 4.5 instead of 5. Well, there was a bit of a lull
(for me anyways) about a quarter of the way in that lasted for maybe a
chapter that, frankly, surprised me that it was even there. Frater is
such a succinct, well worded, fluent writer that I didn’t expect to have
a point in the story where I actually thought, “Hey, Glynis! Get off
your butt, stop over thinking and do something!!”. Yes, I do talk to
characters regularly. But only if the book wraps me up and takes me
away to the world inside. Obviously, Ms. Frater was able to transport
me back to Buda in 1820. Rhiannon Frater is that talented of an author
and I suggest you read anything of hers you can get your hands on,
including the Vampire Bride series. As for the next book in the
Vampire Bride series, you’re going to have to wait until 2013 for The
Lament of the Vampire Bride (Vampire Bride #3).

I was so excited when i saw a second book to the first vampire bride story. It was just as wonderful and epic as the first, though a bit slow at times, which was ok with me as the awesomeness of the book outweighed the lags. Am deffinately looking forward to the next book in the Vampire Bride series! Hope it comes out soon!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
