The Vampire Guard: Book One
Meet the newest members of the Vampire Guard, where legend and myth meet science and technology.
Jonas Forge, vampire. Once a spy and soldier, now a cop, Forge enjoys the life he's built with his friends in Flint, Ohio.
Blair Turner, PhD. Blair, a vampire and computer hacker with exceptional skills, shares a powerful empathic bond with Forge, his soul mate.
Declan, vampire, ex-pirate, ex-fur trapper, thief, and con man. Declan is Forge's former lover and soul mate to Lucas Coate.
Lucas Coate, MD, Flint's medical examiner. A werewolf living among vampires, Lucas is also one of Forge's best friends.
Their lives become complicated when an impending presidential visit throws them headlong into a world of high-tech vampire spies and espionage. Recruited into the Vampire Guard by the secret society of the Akhkharu Nasaru, they uncover a werewolf terrorist organization known as the Qiguan.
Together they must thwart a murder attempt on the open waters of Lake Superior while tracking a previously unknown biological weapon controlled by the Qiguan--a weapon that may very well mean death for one of them.

Code Name Jack Rabbit Elizabeth Noble Even though this book is "the first in a series," clearly there are some books behind it. That is its first problem; the book does not stand alone. The writer has a problem with point of view. Ms. Noble should take a writing 101 course so that she can master the third person point of view. I suspect she was going for the Universal point of view, but did not succeed. At times there is some third person point of view but most of the time you have no idea who "he" is. The plot is OK. I suspect with good writing style it might had made for an enjoyable book. The characters are not realistic, but then again neither are vampires, werewolves, or the Akhkaru Nasaru - Vampire guard. I don't recommend the book.
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book. Forge, Blair, Declan and Lucas are kidnapped and invited to join The Vampire Guard, a secret task force working to keep humans safe. Their joining this task force allows them to use their own particular skill sets in ways they are not in their current daily lives. It also brings them into contact with another secret society, one with much darker plans. SO!! I always say different is good, and this is no exception. What's different about it, is that Forge and Blair, and Lucas and Declan are already mated to each other, and this is NOT about their meetings and pairings. Its about their recruitment to Akhkharu Nasaru, and their discovery of a plot to remove a huge number of werewolves who are more forward thinking and progressive in their packs. Its about the Akhkharu Nasaru and what they do, what they have been doing for many centuries. You are not fully aware of that bigger picture immediately, and I do like being kept waiting. I did love the being that was used for the "accidents" because we don't get any (or none I have come across) with that supernatural being. I'm not saying what it is, because that might give too much away! The relationship between Forge, Declan and Blair (all vampires) and Lucas (who is a werewolf) is very close knit, and at times it did almost seem that Forge and Declan had a pairing, rather than Lucas and Declan, its really that close a thing. Forge and Declan have shared a home together for almost a hundred years and have a longer a history than that, so it makes sense they should be close. The story moves along at an even pace and is well written from all four men's POV. Its not overly explicit, for a vampire/werewolf book and I am NOT filing it on the romance shelf. There is love, yes, but as I said at the beginning, these guys are already paired and fully bonded. A little bit of gore, when dealing with a captive wolf who does not wanna play nice, but not too much. There were some things mentioned in the book, that happen many years previously. I would like to have known more about those things, but maybe that information will come out in future books. This is the first in this series, and also the first I have read of this author. I should like to read more of both. 4 stars **same worded review will appear on: Goodreads, BookLikes, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com, Kobo and Barnes and Noble**
