The Vampire's Curse (Undead in Brown County #2)
The tingling, mesmerizing heat blazed even hotter in my veins as I watched him stroll towards me. There was a blatant elegance in the careless way he moved, from the slight swing of his arms to the fluid action in his long legs. He leaned over me, his eyes cold and calculating, his cool breath swirled over ...more
This was a good read for me. I was annoyed when I had to put down my book to do things because I wanted to read it straight through. Even though I didn't read book 1, I was able to have an idea what happen from book2. The author made sure to give brief descriptions on what ...more
The characters I really enjoyed all of them! Michael is still a bit of a mystery to me but I think that is what the author is going for. I still fell for him in the first book and that carries on to this one. He's powerful but desperately in Love with Sarah.
Sarah she is feisty, strong-willed and has a strong sense of family. All these things make her a great female lead. She fell in strong for Michael but is wary of him which is to be ...more
Since this was a second installment of the Undead in Brown County series, and I haven’t read the first book, I was excited to see what the series is about. I have read reviews and blurb and books excerpts from the first book, so I had a approximate picture what the first book was about. I wanted to read and review The Vampire’s Curse and it was all worth of the time spent. The Vampire’s curse is novella of 128 pages, so I read it in one sitting. I enjoyed the writing style of S.J. Wrig ...more
It kind of went downhill for me, starting with the unexpected hook up and almost killing of the heroine and a dude from the first book (trying to not give anything away). It felt so out of the blue to me I actually flipped back to the description on my kindle to make SURE I didn't actually download book #3 or something.
It just felt like this book was missing big chunks and that was ...more
Big thank you to all the new readers! I love you guys.
The tingling, mesmerizing heat blazed even hotter in my veins as I watched him stroll towards me. There was a blatant elegance in the careless way he moved, from the slight swing of his arms to the fluid action in his long legs. He leaned over me, his eyes cold and calculating, his cool breath swirled over my cheeks like a freezing winter mist.
“You’re not afraid?”
I could not move. He was holding me prisoner without chains, without bars of a...more
Michael was still what carried me through this story. I couldn't really get into any of the other characters. Sarah was just annoying, her sister was self absorbed (Really, you get mad at your sister? Like it was actually her fault.), and Alex was just all over the pl ...more
I have really enjoyed the love triangle. In the first book, I was leaning more toward Alex. In this boo ...more
There was a major twist early on in the novel that really caught me off guard and added some excitement ...more
Sarah is coming to terms with the task, of being a warden, that was left to her by her father but I think she is beginning to become a little bit overwhelmed by it all. It’s all still surreal to her and she can’t believe that ...more
Once again S.J. Wright brings us a fast, compelling read. I enjoyed learning more about Sarah and the story of who she is and how she became that person. I loved Michael in the first book, and continue to love him in this one. He is my favorite character and my heart bled for him when he feels betrayed and lost. I was torn between loving Alex and hating Alex - I guess that was the author's plan. I was thrilled with the supporting characters and the roles they played in this book. Kat ...more
Can you tell I loved the second book in this three book series. Just a little bit huh. It just might be my favorite out of ...more
CAPTURED MY INTEREST: 3.5
ESCAPE FACTOR: 3.5
Out of all the many vampire/paranormal books I've read there are by far the most beautifully writen. I don't like flowery, uber-illustrative descriptions, but the way Wright blends that in to her writing is gorgeous.
I was unhappy with the direction she took Sarah - is she strong, is she weak, why is she sleeping with random people all of a sudden. I felt like her character got mangled and was not dev ...more
The book though is really fast paced always something going on. There are lots and lots of surprises. And just wait until you see who she ends up with! I was always for Michael then I switched it up to Alex in the beginning of this book. But you just wait and see how that all plays ...more
Completely engrossed with the whole story. Can't wait to read the third one to ...more
I hate to give this 2 stars, but while I'm interested in the story I just don't want to keep reading. Everything happens too fast. The entire time I'm reading I'm trying to figure out what the heck is going on, not the literal actions, but the why. A two second explanation is not motivation! I'll probably read the next book, but it seems like a chore.
I really do enjoy the concept, but I wish there was more characterization and background so I can actually understand the characters, not just the ...more
