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.

SECRET OF THE WOLF is the second book the Warriors of the Rift series which introduced an interesting concept to paranormal romance with werewolves, vampires, fey, and demons being beings who came over from a parallel dimension. In a way that makes them even more fantastical than they already are and puts a fun spin on creatures we are very familiar with.
