The Blurb:

Vampires in America: The Vampire Wars, Book 12
Ireland—a land of magic and fantasy, of fierce warrior kings and fairy mounds . . . and, of course, vampires who’ve been around for nearly as long as those beguiling fey.

Brilliant and ambitious, Quinn Kavanagh was aiming for the top, even before he was turned. But now, as a powerful vampire lord, he’s driven by the demands of his blood, compelled to conquer and destroy, to defeat Ireland’s criminal ruler, and make the territory a better place for all its vampires and humans alike. 

Smart and beautiful, Eve Connelly was a graduate student with life’s endless possibilities stretched out before her. She knew nothing of vampires and didn’t care . . . until she watched two of them murder her beloved brother. Now she’s driven, too. But she doesn’t want to help Ireland’s vampires—she just wants to kill them.

Bound together by love and hate, Quinn and Eve will risk everything to bring down the bloody regime of Ireland’s current vampire ruler. But in order to find revenge for Eve and the ultimate power for Quinn, they first have to learn to trust each other. And that might be the most dangerous thing of all . . . .

My Review

3 Where is the love Stars

*Mild Spoilers

I love the Vampires in America series. I adore almost anything D.B. Reynolds writes, but this one while entertaining was not as good for me as past books. The reason this was only a 3 star read for me was because I didn't feel the love. Quinn and Eve had very little time together and their relationship was very superficial. I didn't feel a connection or a bond, because there was no real build up, no real time spent together. Just some lust and a few hook up and then I love yous at the end. Now while the relationship felt lacking, Quinn and Eve individually were very likable. 

I loved Quinn he was almost perfect. The only thing he did that made me lose a little love for him was when he fed from another women. See I could have forgave that, but later he went to that same woman planning on feeding and having sex with her. Eve caught him and was like WTF and he was like I'm a vamp I need to feed and have sex and we aren't together. Even though they had been sleeping together. Then he turned with the other woman and walked away. Of course he doesn't touch the other woman because Eve stopped him and let him feed from her instead. The problem was that I didn't like him even thinking about having sex with another woman when he and the heroine had already been together. Even if they were not a couple yet. I still loved Quinn and that was the only time in my eyes he wasn't awesome. Eve on the other hand was likable but sometimes came off really childish. She let her mother treat her like poo. She would put herself in dangerous situations and was so closed minded about vampires that it came off immature. I did find her sassy, and brave. But I would have liked it better if she would have told her mom off or something. 

The action in the book was good, the plot too. I loved Quinn's vampire power. The last boss battle was good. I just really wished A) there would have been more romance and B) I would have like some Raphel and Cyn. They are my favorite! Now even thought I didn't like this book as much as others I still enjoyed it. I still love this series and plan on reading the next book as soon as it comes out!
