For Halloween, WVMP is throwing a bash sure to raise the dead. They’ve got cool tunes, hot costumes, killer cocktails—what could go wrong? Well, for starters, a religious firebrand ranting against the evils of the occult preempts the station’s midnight broadcast. Then, when Ciara tracks down the illegal transmission, the broadcast tower is guarded by what appears to be…a canine vampire? And behind it all is a group of self-righteous radicals who think vampires suck (and are willing to stake their lives on it).
Now Ciara must protect the station while struggling with her own murky relationship issues, her best friend’s unlikely romance with a fledgling vampire, and the nature of her mysterious anti-holy powers. To make it to New Year’s in one piece, she’ll need to learn a few new tricks.…
I loved the premise of this book. Ciara and the vamps are looking for the group/person that is backing the Family Action Network. Who was behind FAN and why were they blocking the radio transmissions whenever a female vocalist played or the only female DJ talked. There was so much going on in the book I can't possibly narrow it down but it kept my attention that was for sure.
Then there was Shane who was as wonderful, protective, loving toward Ciara and OCD as ever. I just love how his character is developed. Yes he has his issues but I think he's a incredible person.
Ciara, as a vamp protector and investigator was great. In those roles I loved her. But in her personal life, not so much. I know that she is still growing and trying to figure out who she is but at times I had a hard time relating to her. By the end of the book though she did seem to get more of a grasp on what she wanted in her life. I'm hoping for the next book she's a tad more stable. :)
And then there was Dexter: vamp dog extraordinaire. I loved that dog. He was abandoned and saved by Ciara and I want him for my own. He was a fabulous addition to the cast of characters and I'll definitely want to see him stick around.
As usual I loved Ms. Smith-Ready's writing - she truly knows how to suck you in and not let go. Although we got a small glimpse into Regina's life during this life I do hope that we'll see more into the lives of the other vamps in future books.
