SFSignal Review: Two New Book Reviews Available at SFSignal

I’ve penned two new book reviews over at SFSignal: ASHES OF MIDNIGHT by Lara Adrian and CARPE CORPUS by Rachel Caine. Here’s the quick lowdown:

carpecorpusCARPE CORPUS:

While Carpe Corpus is the sixth installment in the Morganville Vampire series and I have not read any previous books, the story and characters immediately engaged my attention. While not a superhuman vampire slayer, teenage protagonist and brainiac Claire Danvers helps fill the void left by Buffy Summers.

Under the rule of the evil vampire Bishop, the tense peace between vampires and humans in the small college town of Morganiville, Texas, has been broken. An underground resistance is brewing led by the town’s former vampire leader Amelie, but all protagonist Claire Danvers can think of is the fate of her boyfriend Shane, who Bishop holds prisoner. Claire risks everything to rescue Shane from Bishop’s grasp and set the town of Morganville to rights.

Ashes of Midnight is a Paranormal Romance novel that continues Adrian’s Midnight Breed series depicting vampires descended from beings from another planet.

As the Order fights to stop Dragos and his second-in-command Wilhelm Roth from taking control of the Breed world, Roth’s estranged wife and Breedmate Claire reignites an attraction thought long forgotten with German vampire Andreas Reichen.
