The Secret Diary Of Detective Vampire (Interracial Paranormal Vampire Romance BWWM)

Kindle Edition119 pages
Published February 19th 2014
by J.J. Jones

Let me get one thing out of the way first, dam cliffhanger ending, grrrrr.

The book is short one about 119 pages. It was a free kindle find. It is the first part of the "Detective Vampire" Trilogy. The other two are less then 100 pages each. But don't let the lack of pages fool you. It is a great story.

Love how each of the 12 chapters have a title that pertains to something that will be said in that chapter. Didn't put two and two together about this till a few chapters in, after that I couldn't wait to see how it was used.

The main characters Detective Jack Van Pierre and Olivia are both likable and to say that Jack is mysteries is putting it mildly. You keep reading just wanting to know more about him and how he interacts with other. Oh and you got to love his brand of justice to those he deems unworthy who are walking around free.

I was able to read it in a few nights, which for me is an accomplishment. My reading time is scarce to say the least. But I kept finding time, wanting to see what happens next.

Can't wait to read the next installments of the series.

I would give the book 4 out of 5 stars.

The Pretenders (The Cemetery Girl Trilogy, #1)

Graphic novel
Hardcover128 pages
Published January 7th 2014 b
by Charlaine Harris, Christopher Golden

I have read only one other graphic novel which was Anne Rice's The Vampire Lestat and that was some time ago. But since this was the only way to read the book I took a chance.

Anyway I really enjoyed Book 1 The Pretenders and will be looking forward to the rest of the series. The story kept me reading wanting to know what was going to happen next. The art work was good as well, did not need to use my imagination which was a treat.

Would highly recommend the series to anyone that likes suspense and mystery, don't let the graphic part scare you. Will not hesitate to try other graphic novels, just hope they live up as well as this one did.

I would give the book 4 out of 5 stars.
