I have read all of Sands' Argeneau books and I thought this one just wasn't up to par with the others. Maybe it is because Thomas is the laid back Argeneau who no one takes seriously because he is so young (young to other immortals anyway.) I liked Inez and do like Thomas but there was something about this story that I just couldn't connect with. I did enjoy seeing all my other favorite Argeneau men towards the end of the book though. On a side note this book takes place simutaneously with the next book in the series, Vampire Interrupted. I read that one first and then read this one. I have never read these books in order but do recommend that you read this book before Vampire Interrupted. Although the plot lines happen simultaneously there are some things that are best read in the proper order.
A little bit of a disappointment. Would still recommend reading as it continues the story line. Wanted to like it alot as I liked the character Thomas in earlier books in the series. The whole story line seemed slightly superficial and seemed to serve to just move the characters to the next book. Still I gave it a 3. I always seem to laugh out loud at least once (actually a couple of times) with her books and this one was no exception.
I read Vampires Are Forever after the Accidental Vampire in the last few days and was disappointed in both.
My preference for vampires is a too-die-for handsome, somewhat arrogant bad boy, highly sensual being who is bought to his knees by the heroine. Sands' books leave me wanting what her characters lack. Her vampires are soft, too nice, and seem powerless.
I'll look for the vampire fix elsewhere.
good light read,easy to finish in a couple of days.Did enjoy it!
I love this book! It has lots of suspense, romance, battle scenes, and plenty steamy scenes! What a page turner!!!
