Book Review of Tall, Dark & Fangsome by Michelle Rowen
Sarah Dearly's vampire life is not all B-positive cocktails. A curse made her a nightwalker, the most vicious vamp there is; the charm she wears to curb her deadly tendencies is losing its juice; and a hunter from hell is turning up the heat. Gideon Chase will kill the ones she loves most if she doesn't obey his orders. That includes breaking up with master vampire Thierry and turning Gideon into an immortal vamp so he can escape a doom of eternal hellfire.
Making things worse are Sarah's growing feelings for Gideon, a bad boy who keeps showing a vulnerable side. . .but is it for real? Will Sarah's dark side take over? Or can she cure herself of the nightwalker curse in time to stop Gideon and finally live happily ever after with Thierry. . .forever?
Lighthearted and fun, Tall, Dark & Fangsome effectively mixes romance with vampire paranormal action. It's my first time to read any of the Immorality Bites series and I found the book to be an enjoyable read. The vampires and the slayers are entertaining and the plot full of twists. This series isn't as graphic or gory as some of the other vampire series - which I liked. Overall, a fun escape!
