About the Author

C.J. Ellisson is a New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, who writes adult urban fantasy, mystery, and romance. She lives in northern Virginia with her husband, two teenagers, three dogs, and two cats-reporting to love the energetic zoo that's become their home.

When forced to give up a career due to her decreasing health, C.J. turned to writing in 2009 and claims the escape helped save her sanity. She battled severe chronic illness for years and has finally reached the end of her long-term treatment.

Instead of dozens of pills, IVs, exhaustion, and pain, C.J.'s days are now filled with writing, exercising, eating healthy, and running a novel-writing club at her daughter's school. It all leads to a fun-filled, busy day, and she's incredibly grateful to be so involved in life again.

You have got to read the Preface. The reader gets to see how human our author is – she puts it out there. And it’s something that some of us can relate to. Vivian and her husband show that this is a series that’s best read in order. If you start here, you will be confused by certain events. There was one scene where I had to go back a little and re-read because I lost track of whose point of view I was reading. Once I figured it out then the scene made sense. This is not a story to read if your mind is elsewhere. That’s why once my life takes on some semblance of normal I’m going to re-read this book. This is a series that showcases the author’s creativity. It’s a world that the author has created from scratch. It’s where the reader’s imagination can fly. Anything is possible. You know you’re in for a crazy ride when our author sends a vampire to Alaska. Our author also shows that vampires can care about something other than blood. The bad news is that the ending leaves you hanging. The good news is that this means there may be another book coming. If you love paranormal series than this may be an author you will want to check out. Maybe you like something out of the ordinary that will grab your attention. Maybe it’s something that will have you hanging on the edge of your seat – what are the characters going to do next. Maybe you don’t mind reading a book that’s told from different points of view – because that just adds to the enjoyment. And then there’s the fact that I want to go up to Alaska and see if there are folklore tales of vampires in the vicinity. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Vivian, a master vampire, and her husband are in Alaska at their resort. They are preparing for trouble. She and her friends are in danger. Can she keep everyone safe? I've always found Vivian to be a larger than life character, but she's changed in Sharpen The Blade. She's more empathetic and approachable. I like to see her connect with those around her. Rafe, as always is her rock. Their relationship adds romance to this suspenseful story. I was pulled in by Jon and his relationship with Candy. I liked this werewolf and wanted him to find what he needs to make him content. C.J. Ellisson wrote an exciting addition to The V V Inn series. The ending was unexpected and heartbreaking. Just be aware that this book ends with a cliffhanger. I can't wait to see what happens next. I received a copy of this book which I voluntarily read. My comments are my honest opinion.

One of the things that stand out most for me is how this writer manages to entwine multiple situations around a storyline. Coupling the complexity with mad writing skills, it glues me deeply into the book. Now this book is part of a series so yes, it's best read in order. Honestly, if this one was the first I read, it really would make me want to read the prior ones not just to fill in the unknown history, but because it is a literary work of art. The characters feel real, and my emotions were fully engaged and I find myself hanging on the edge with other fellow readers now waiting for the next. There is happiness and heartbreak abound in this book so be prepared!
