As Michael’s eyes lit on a female not twenty feet away, he knew without a doubt that it was her blood that called to him and her scent that had awakened him.This female had tethered his soul and returned it to him.

Soul Survivor

He is the last of his race. The one true king of the vampires. Michael Aristov roams the nightclubs of L.A. after dark, haunted by his past and driven by his hunger. The last of the Ancient Ones, he alone has survived the destruction of his race at the hands of the slayers. Now he is forced to hunt and feed like a common vampire, a creature of lust. Nothing in this world can fulfill his needs…until he meets a woman who’s everything he’s ever wanted. And more.

Sweet Salvation

Her name is Claire Thompson. Her blood is so sweet, so intoxicating—the smell alone draws Michael to her like a moth to the flame. Sly, sexy, and seductive, Claire seems to be the only mortal who can satisfy his craving and seal his fate…forever. Can she be trusted? From their very first kiss, the last true vampire sweeps Claire into a world in which darkness rules desire—and where falling in love is the greatest danger of all…



BOOK REVIEW: 

I stumbled across this book at my local library. It was an impulse loan. I came home and had a look at the overall rating on Goodreads. 

It was not above 4 stars. But, I am a reader who wants to find out for myself and I am so glad I did. Man, peeps on GR are being a bit harsh.

It's a vampire book. 

There is love, biting, lust, villains, loyal friends, sex, some graphic violence due to bad guys, hunters, throw in Claire a hustler and a bit of intrigue for the next book and I thought it was just over a four star read.

There is the Collective which I thought was quite original, not that I have read a squillion vampire reads.

Siobhan is a dhampir leader who is a good guy when it suits her. She's a manipulator. 

The Sortiari are the hunters out to stop the world from co existing with  dhampirs ( the not quite a vampire) and the Last True Vampire , aka Mikhail who when he finds his mate can turn dhampirs into vampires.

Gotta say I have certainly read much, much worse than this book. I dug it and was entertained and I think I have a sense of a good read.

Ronan's book is up next, The Warrior Vampire. I totally dug Ronan in this book, so I am looking forward to seeing what he brings to his story.
