I’m not certain why I picked up FIRST YEAR. I pick up YA books a lot less often these days, and even less so if they’re about kids going to school. I’m glad I made an exception for The Black Mage series though because it is amazing.
DATING THE UNDEAD introduces a world where vampires are “out” and don’t need blood to survive. It’s also a world where vampires need a website to find dates though, which is a bit strange.

With such a well-established series, it is impossible to judge the emotional heft of GENTLEMAN JOLE AND THE RED QUEEN outside the context of its predecessors.

BLADE BOUND was a solid end to the thrilling and action filled Chicagoland Vampires series. It had everything you have come to expect from this series, from humor, Merit’s love of all of the food (there is an amazing moment involving chocolate that I want to experience myself), drama, cool fight scenes, to demonstrating the true strength of the bonds of love and friendship.
Note: This book is available online for free. Read it now!
I read this book so quickly, I could barely believe it. The main character’s drive consumed me the way the zombies in the book consume the living.
Tim Kempfer if not a warrior. He’s a librarian on a very simple mission: kill the zombie that murdered his wife and son, and if needed, end them as well. How does he know which zombie he needs to kill in a post-apocalyptic, quarantined Seattle? Easy: his wife’s death was on the news, and it was so graphic and iconic of the disaster that the broadcasts have been playing it on a loop.
This gorgeous illustrated novel is one of the scarier things I have read. Nearly a collection of short stories, the tale is told by three strangers around the table of an inn. It’s a story about war, plague, human weakness and vampires.
These vampires are original and disgusting. The translation of the horrors of the Great War as literal monsters is very effective.
I love how this series unravels the overarching plot along with new details about Gin’s past ever so slowly across the books. SNARED is no different.
MER was a quick read with lovely art, a story that held my attention, but it left me with a number of questions at the end of the story.
