Judy Serrano is such a wonderful and talented story teller. There is not much she leaves out that don’t catch your attention.
You have suspense, thriller, paranormal and romance all rolled into one. The idea of taking gangsters, and making them vampires, what and awesome combination.
What I like the best was these were not your normal vampires that you read about or see in movies. And oh yes there were also werewolves and sabers you had to worry about as well. There was even one part of the book that brought a smile to my face, but not going to ruin it by telling you. You will just have to read the book and find out. But if you are a Judy Serrano fan you will understand what brought on my smile.
I’m always sad when I reach the end of one of Judy’s stories. I don’t want it to end. You can’t help but get caught up in it all. You can’t help but fall in love with her characters. Her stories bring on so many different types of emotions.
Watch out Laurell Hamilton and your Anita Blake series. Judy Serrano is in town and she has gangster vampires.
