The saga of Macey Gardella continues in the second volume of award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Colleen Gleason’s Roaring Trilogy...

In the dark underworld of Jazz Age speakeasies and gangsters, Macey Gardella finds herself caught up in a dangerous alliance with Al Capone. The murderous crime boss squires her about Chicago, showing her off as his moll while she struggles to fulfill her duty hunting the undead on the midnight streets.

She’s learned the brutal lesson of loss and betrayal that comes to those who live out the legacy of the Venators, walking away from her friends, co-workers, and even Grady—the intrepid newshawk who seems to dog her every movement.

But when the worst comes to pass, and the powerful Venator alliance of Sebastian Vioget, Chas Woodmore, and Macey herself stumble in the face of the insidious evil of Nicholas Iscariot, even Macey has cause to question her motives and decisions.

And when the ultimate sacrifice must be paid, who will remain to wield the stake—and who will walk away?

Praise for the Gardella Vampire Hunters:

"...turns vampire stories—and romances—on their ear." --The Detroit News 

"With its wonderfully witty writing, action-infused plot and sharply defined characters, Rises the Night is deliciously dark and delightfully entertaining." -– The Chicago Tribune 

"A tense plot line and refreshingly diverse supporting characters complete the package, giving series fans plenty to sink their teeth into--and plenty more to look forward to." – Publishers Weekly 

"…Heart-stopping scenes and sexual tension. With numerous twists, [Gleason] leaves you hanging, eagerly awaiting the next installment." – Romantic Times

Macey Gardella sinks her stake into you, and twists you through a whirlwind of the Roaring Twenties! Colleen has done herself over and beyond yet again, pulling Macey through the fight of her life. If you want action, adventure, and passion this is the book for you! Macey is the perfect culmination of her predecessors Victoria Gardella, and Max Pesaro, and the perfect rival to Nicholas Iscariot. Macey has to balance her legacy as a Gardella with her yearning to try to stay somewhat normal, in the Roaring Twenties era. She also has the fear that she will turn into other Vampire Hunters before her: cold, hard, and alone, dealing the with the fate they have: that everyone they love will be destroyed. I enjoyed the book immensely, and couldn’t put it down. You won’t regret pulling this book from the shelf!

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. This second book in the story of Macey Gardella does not disappoint. This part of the story line will take you on an emotional voyage through rough seas. I smiled, laughed, felt my heart swell with joy, cried, became angry, and even found afraid at times. Gleason does such an amazing job with character development that I truly feel as if I know them personally, and as if I am going through these trials alongside them. I don't want to go into details and spoil any of it for people who haven't read this yet, but I give you my word that this is definitely worth reading. I can't wait for book 3 now!

Colleen Gleason has done it again!! An amazingly talented author with a gift for bringing her setting and characters to life. Book 2 in the Macey Gardella series will have you forgetting everything else going on around you, as you can't book this book down! 1920's Chicago, Macey is caught up in a whirlwind of crime, passion, murder, Al Capone and Vampires! Secrets are revealed, loved ones lost and the ending....shocking! An absolute must read!

na Groat Part of my agreement when I obtained an advanced copy was that I review it when I finished reading it. I just finished reading Roaring Shadows, and let me tell you - it's a story that reels you in, and keeps you reading to the very end! I didn't want to put this story down as I had gotten pulled into the story line. When I got to the ending, all I can say is "wow". Once again, Colleen Gleason , you did a wonderful job with this story. I can't wait to the next boo!

Roaring Shadows is an action-packed and emotion-filled continuation of Macey Gardella Denton's part of the Gardella Vampire Hunters saga. Macey has to learn to balance her personal life with that of a vampire hunter in 1920s Chicago ruled by two titans of the underworld--the gangster Al Capone and the leader of the undead Nicholas Iscariot. Suddenly, everyone is coming after Macey for their own nefarious purposes. It doesn't help that she thinks she has to push away everyone who cares about her in order to protect them. As Chas is fond of saying, "The life of a Venator is a lonely one." Macey's dilemma churns up a lot of emotion, and some parts are so tense, it was gut-wrenching. While I'm not really a fan of the bloody aspects of vampire stories, they do serve to get across the importance of Macey living up to her legacy and continuing to fight evil. The ending of this book was very satisfying, and I'm looking forward to the next installment!
