1st RIP Review


Hubba-hubba! You just have to love this cover! In fact, this turned out to be a rather steamy read. Colleen Gleason's Rises The Night is the 2nd in The Gardella Vampire Chronicles. The 1st book in the series The Rest Falls Away was an OK read. It was good enough that when Rises The Night came out, I put it on my library list, but not good enough to buy the series.

Rises The Night has me pleasantly surprised. I still found it a slow read, but by the end, it really had my attention. The story-line had my attention, I just think that writing could have been a little more in-depth, a little more fleshed out. Gleason's sex scenes and her interactions between Victoria and Sebastian were the best in the book. It show cased her writing talents well. I just wish the rest of the book was as good.

I've been wanting to get into this series, too, but have so many other books I need to get out of my house (I'm a BookCrosser), I've been holding off. I'm pretty certain that my local library will not have these books, so I will have to invoke the Powers of Interlibrary Loan.

Interesting that you found it a slow read; I zipped right through it. The cover is awesome, isn't it?
