The Energy Vampires #2
July 11th 2017
Two strangers—one warm and human, the other deadly and craving—become pawns in an all-out vampire war as this series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Nightwalkers saga heats up. As an energy vampire, Halo enjoys the chase for human blood—if it’s pure and consensual.
But Halo goes from hunter to hunted when he is knocked unconscious and taken hostage by vicious sycophants. As he comes to, he realizes that he’s naked, starving, and trapped in a sealed room. With him is a deliciously human female, tempting him to feed—except her blood is heady with the scent of poisonous drugs. Never has nourishment been so near, yet so far . . . and it’s all part of the sycophants’ sick game.
The last thing Felice Mendoza remembers is everything going black. She awakens stripped, drugged, exposed, and alone—with a vampire. Halo is at once savage and tender, terrifying and alluring. Felice senses that her only chance to escape depends upon his survival. Given the choice between Halo and his enemies, Felice surrenders to his ravenous hunger. It’s a calculated risk—and a delirious pleasure. As Felice is ushered into a world as dangerous as it is desirable, their fight for deliverance is only the beginning.
It has been a while since I read the last book by Jacquelyn Frank, but still she is one of those authors where after the first few pages you feel like coming home. I was really happy to receive “Hunger” the latest book in the Energy Vampire series for review. It only took me a day and half the night #snicker and I was already done with it. As the Blurb is not yet public it seems my review will be not to deep into the plot.
Mrs. Frank created an interesting setting from page one by throwing the reader into a scene where not only the leading characters but also the reader were at a loss of what had happened and that made the whole thing a lot more interesting. It was easy to get into the story when you are used to the extremely developed worlds this author creates.
I did not read the first book in the series but I read other books from her so I knew what to expect and she did not disappoint. If you want you can read this book as a standalone like I did but I think reading the first book before this would bring def. a little more light into some things in the background of some secondary characters of this novel.
Well I really liked the dynamics of the characters but still I am not able to give the full star rating because I could not involve myself emotionally in the way I would need to give 5 stars. Especially towards the end I had some issues with the female lead. I would have liked it a little better if the male lead would have had more issues with the decisions he made.
The way it was told the whole load of the relationship ended on the shoulders of the female lead and that did not suit the set up of this strong lead. Anyway I am sure lovers of this author will devour this book and love it – so enjoy.
