Genre: Paranormal, Vampires, Urban Fantasy, Fantasy, Romance
Goodreads Rating: 3.84
My Rating: 3/5
Being a vampire is a life-or-death situation. When I was first turned, I had only my survival to worry about. Now I’m locked in a battle for the existence of the entire human race—and the cards are definitely stacked against me.
The Voluntary Vampire Extinction Movement headquarters are destroyed, and their pet horror, the Oracle, is on the loose. She’ll stop at nothing to turn the world into a vampire’s paradise, even if it means helping the Soul Eater become a god and harnessing his power for her own evil ends.
An ancient vampire, a blood-sucking near deity and oh, yeah, my presently human former sire thrown into the mix. I say bring it on. May the best monster win. (Goodreads)
“Hey, Baker! You give her the seven O’clock meds yet?”
This series is really just a soap opera! I’m still hoping that this series would eventually pick up. I loved Max’s character and his sassy werewolf girlfriend. In Ashes to Ashes, there was more development in their relationship but I was quite disappointed when Bella was so clingy and whiney. There were parts of the book that I did enjoy, like that the world is so different from other books in the genre. But I just couldn’t go any higher with the rating since I just don’t like Carrie. At the time I really liked Cyrus and even liked Nathan at times but Carrie. I absolutely just can’t seem to connect with her.
