A Cold Day in Hell is one hell of a ride that you just want to get right back on to experience all over again.

In book two Sharon left us with one heck of a cliffhanger and she opens with Gabi and Julius still falling right off of that cliff, into a pit of nonstop action and some serious challenges. Gabi’s secret is out, she is a Damphir and the consequences for her and all of those she loves are worse than she could have ever imagined. Gabi, being quite possibly one of the most badass female leads in a series, doesn’t run away from her problems; she goes right into them with guns a blazin… well with her sword “Nyx” strapped to her anyway 😉

Gabi of course doesn’t go in alone; My man (and Master Vampire) Julius is right there with her along with the amazing cast of sexy Vamps, Kyle her best friend (who also happens to be a Wolf), and of course Razor her very special cat.

The author made this story darker and of course a bit sexier than its predecessors and by doing so she really gave great depth to all of the characters; especially those that were not in the main cast. Her world building is just getting better and better. Sharon Hannaford has pulled out all of the stops on book three and she has me ensnared in her trap for good. I am already waiting on the edge of my seat for book four!

The City may be calm, but is the Hunter about to become the hunted?

For the first time in months the City is peaceful, so peaceful that Gabi’s suspension from the Societas Malus Venatori doesn’t feel like a punishment. Her relationship with Julius is stronger than ever and Kyle has finally found his soul mate, even if he seems to need some convincing. Gabi thinks boredom is her most serious problem. She couldn’t be more wrong.

The visitor Julius has been both expecting and dreading arrives, bringing with him dire news. An old enemy, out to destroy them, has revealed to the Masters of the Vampire race that Gabi is a Dhampir. The visitor’s presence also answers the question that’s been simmering in Gabi’s head for years; the truth of her origins. This truth brings with it a deeper understanding of the implications of her very existence, and she doesn’t like what she discovers. But it’s too late to change what’s been done and Julius must now answer to the Princeps’ Court.

As Gabi makes plans to leave the City, drawing danger away from friends and family, a dark prophesy by the Magi Oracles forces her to change course. She will not be leaving the City alone, and she will not be running from the threat. She, Julius and a handful of others will be heading straight into the mouth of the beast. They must present themselves at Court before the Princeps travel to the City and inadvertently uncover one of the most closely guarded secrets of the Magi world.

While the Princeps wear a face of impartiality and civility, what boils beneath the surface is a storm of selfishness, greed, lust and perversion. Danger lurks in every corner and it soon becomes clear that someone is determined to ensure that Gabi will never get the chance of a fair hearing.

Old friends and old enemies do what they have always done best, while new friends and new enemies emerge at every turn. Only one thing is sure; it’ll be a cold day in Hell before Hellcat goes down without a fight.

Put the coffee on and warm up your page-turning finger, it’s going to be a long night.

This is a full length novel.

Please note this novel is written in UK English and contains some adult content.

 

Succubus is a novella and the fourth book of Gladys Quintal’s Dream series. Instead of moving forward the reader is thrust into an erotic journey of the past. A past before the chosen one was born and when Elizabeth first became a succubus and Sebastian first became vampire.

Elizabeth and Sebastian make great villains. Elizabeth is cold and calculating. She is devoted to her role of delivering souls and her appetite for sex is insatiable.  Sebastian is much the same way, but within him there is still a shred of emotion, especially when it comes to his half-brother Gabriel.  He is as seductive as Elizabeth; the difference between them is Sebastian possesses a little more finesse.

I was happy that Quintal went back and filled in the gaps left in the previous books. My favorite quote is when Elizabeth failed at her first attempt at playing the role of succubus and taking the soul, “Stupid c*ck-sucking fetish. I need to get a handle on that if I am ever going to get anywhere in this f*@king job!” I got a good laugh and for a moment I got a whole new perspective of Elizabeth.

Not only did the novella have more erotic scenes than the previous the books, Quintal takes the reader on a journey through four centuries to the time of the chosen one. We learn how Chloe came into existence as well as Alexi’s view on falling in love with Cassandra.

If you have been a follower if the Dream series, this is a must read. If not, pick up the series and prepare for a very intriguing saga!

Succubus is book 4 in The Dream Series, written as a novella to fill in a few gaps – which you know by now is something I love to do. Rather than continuing the plot from book 3, it takes the reader back in time to just after Elizabeth “dies.” You’ll find it a bit more erotic than the first three books, so fair warning!

What happened in the 400 years between Elizabeth dying in her castle tomb and the birth of The Chosen One? Take an erotic step back in time and learn more about what Elizabeth and Sebastian were up to as they prepared for that monumental event to take place.

They certainly didn’t get bored while they were waiting, that’s for sure!

VRB REVIEW

 

About the book:

Grief stricken Katie Dillinger is on a mission to claim revenge for the death of her lover. In a race against time to find the murderer, Katie reaches out to Riker, a man listed as her boyfriend’s emergency contact. The cold-hearted man comes to Katie’s aid, but she doesn’t completely trust him. To keep her friends safe, she insists they leave town immediately. But her efforts come too late. A friend disappears and a clear message is left in the wake: surrender or more people will die.

 Katie’s world is turned upside down when she discovers Riker has vowed to protect her. She’s involved in a prophecy, one which her lover had been preparing her for before his murder. All the combat training he gave her suddenly makes sense, and as Katie fights to keep her friends alive, she’s forced to prioritize. Revenge now, saving mankind next.

Excerpt

Ravenous flames devoured the headless body pinned to the makeshift cross in the front yard. Katie stared, frozen in shock as she sat in her car. Chills shot down her spine. Her gut instinct told her the body burning was her boyfriend, her lover for the last nine years.

Smoke drifted into the car from the vents. One breath triggered bile to rise in her throat. She shoved the door open and bent. Her dinner came out in a mad gush, flying onto the driveway. Tears streamed down her cheeks while her stomach muscles tightened. More of the disgusting fluid rocketed up to her mouth. Pain and heartache overwhelmed her mind, body and soul. He was gone. Forever. He’d said the word countless times over the years. The meaning of the word never hit home, until now.

Sirens screamed through the night, moving closer by the second. The irritating sound intensified the deep throb in her head. She vomited again, unable to control the spasms. Through the thick smoke, she smelled gasoline. Oh God, they’d poured it on him to make sure he couldn’t survive. As if decapitation wasn’t enough.

Bright lights flashed in the darkness as they headed toward her. She’d stopped in the middle of the long driveway, not far from the burning cross holding her lover. Two police cruisers rushed from the road and came to a stop behind her car. Large fire engines blaring their horns passed them and her vehicle. They drove by so fast her vehicle swayed slightly.

“Katie?” Officer Hildebrand asked. She recognized his voice from having served him drinks at the bar every Friday night when he was off duty. “Katie, are you all right?”

She wiped her mouth with the back of her hand as she watched him jog toward her. He passed her and stopped a few feet in front of her car.

“Holy mother of…” He directed his gaze to the burning cross. “Is that a body?”

Another violent spasm hit her stomach. Teeth clenched and lips tight together, she held the urge to barf again, but she couldn’t stop the flood of tears pouring from her eyes.

“Ben, would you stop looking at it and help her out,” Officer Charles Donahue said, walking toward them. His deep smoker’s voice identified him anywhere.

“Katie!” Officer Hildebrand blurted out as if he’d forgotten about her. He rushed toward her and stopped short where her dinner lay on the ground. “Are you all right? Did someone hurt you?”

Unable to speak, she shook her head. Grief stabbed her in the heart. Why? How? Who? Something such as this shouldn’t have happened.

Officer Donahue stopped a few feet to the side of her door and took off his hat. His white hair gleamed thanks to the bright flames. He stared at the sight on the front yard. “My God.”

Officer Ben reached across the circle of puke and placed his hand on her shoulder. “Are you injured? Do you need medical attention?”

She shook her head again as more tears ran from her eyes. Gone. Kyle was gone. How could this happen? The question repeated in her mind.

“Ben, why don’t you drive her back to the station?” Officer Charles said. “I’ll take her car and meet you back there in a few minutes.” He placed his hat back on his head and straightened it.

“Katie, would you like to come with me?” Ben asked softly, as if he were a parent speaking to a young child.

Katie straightened her tense body. From the gap between the car door and the front windshield, she stared at Kyle’s farmhouse. Large flames leaped toward the sky and consumed the structure. Firemen carrying long hoses ran toward her home, but kept a distance. Clearly they couldn’t save it. God, so many memories. So much passionate love shared. So much laughter and happiness occurred within the walls.

“Come on,” Ben said, wrapping his fingers around her arm.

She grabbed her purse sitting in the passenger seat. Leaving the keys in the ignition and the car running, she slowly rose and avoided the disgusting mess on the ground.

Ben kept his hand on her arm while he escorted her toward his vehicle. She walked with her head up and as much poise as she could gather, but her heart ached fiercely. More tears escaped her eyes. Everything she owned and ever cared about was gone. She had nowhere to go.

Ben helped her into the passenger side of the police cruiser, opening the door and closing it once she was situated inside. Katie’s lip quivered as she stared ahead at the bright flames devouring the home she’d known for the last eight years and the one man on earth she’d loved. He was invincible, a fighter to the end. He was strong, smart, experienced, a teacher and lover at heart. He was also immortal.

Immortal Revenge is the story of Katie Dillinger. Katie has just lost her lover of nine years, Kyle, who was exterminated by his own kind. Now Katie vows revenge, she seeks to avenge Kyle, and her other friends who have been affected by the ruthless vampires. What Katie doesn’t realize is she is part of a much bigger picture- a prophecy.

There were so many characters in this book that I liked. First, Katie is bad-ass! She is a fearless heroine who is loyal to her friends. Although she is hurting over Kyle’s death, she pulls herself up and faces what needs to be done. Jules, her best friend, is a great side-kick for Katie. She has strength, but she is also observant and intelligent. The two ladies really click and their bond of friendship is unbreakable.  I am quite smitten with Riker, Kyle’s friend who swore to protect Katie. He is harsh and rude, but you get a feeling he can also be a bit mischievous.  He and Katie are like oil and water which made them very entertaining to read.

Immortal Revenge has a basic storyline I have seen in paranormal books before, but I really had fun with this book. It was the type of read you just sit back and enjoy.  Abshire provided her readers with likeable characters, heartbreak, some mystery, and plenty of action. I didn’t have to look too deeply into it, I was able to just settle in and enjoy the ride!

I can’t wait to see what Abshire brings with the second book of the series. I can only see it getting better and better as Katie’s mission unfolds. Fans of the paranormal genre who would like an easy going read with a heroine that makes you want to get up and kick someone’s ass shouldn’t let this one pass!
