I’ll admit it – after book two in the Noon Onyx series, I wasn’t super eager to keep reading. However, as soon as the cover to WHITE HEART OF JUSTICE came out, I knew I had to stick with it, logic being that there was no way a cover so pretty could be on a bad book. Luckily, I was rewarded with a well-written world, a maturing heroine, and enough action to keep me entertained the whole book.

The second in The Awakening series, VAMPIRE’S THIRST follows immediately after VAMPIRE’S HUNGER, and I was excited to see what Kimber and Duncan were going to do next. Turns out, it was have a bunch of sex, and fight. A bit more on the erotic side than most books we review here on All Things Urban Fantasy, VAMPIRE’S THIRST could have been so great, but unfortunately it fell flat for me, with characters behaving in a nonsensical manner in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, nearly a complete lack of world building, and a mish-mash of tangents that were frustrating distractions from the main plot.
If I’m ever asked for a recommendation from a contemporary YA reader for an entrance book into YA paranormal, HEXED would be at the top of the list. Not so much for the caliber of the story, but because it’s a pretty good blending of the two genres in one little package.
This is one of those series that I kept on meaning to read and after finishing this book I definitely want to start at the beginning as I felt that I was missing out on certain past events that were referred to in CASINO INFERNALE. Ending CASINO INFERNALE with a burning desire to read more of Secret Histories aside, this story is
