At a Glance
I have not read the two previous books in this series, but seeing as it's a paranormal romance--with a new couple each book--I don't think it made a difference in regard to the likability of this book. With that being said, I did not enjoy reading The Half-Breed Vampire.

The Good
The last one-fourth of the book was pretty exciting. I actually felt the suspense as I fidgeted from the stress of what would happen next. The action was a

I enjoyed reading The Half-Breed Vampire. This is a short read but one that will leave you satisfied. The combination of vampires, werewolves and intervention of a mystical being made The Half-Breed Vampire a fun read. Theresa Meyers created a very interesting story by combining interesting characters, exciting story and kick ass action.

4 stars!

Popcorn fun, with fast-pacing and dark and dangerous hero. The plot didn't offer many surprises and wouldn't stand up to much analysis, so I'm not going to over-think this one. It kept me engaged in the story, and I liked all of the characters. Bracken, the werewolf alpha had as much depth as a wet paper towel, but that didn't even diminish my enjoyment.

The Half-Breed Vampire by Theresa Meyers is the third installment in her Harlequin Nocturne Sons of Midnight. In this world, humans know about vampires.

My only issue with the story is that I was a bit confused, as I didn't know the mythology in the story--but it was easy to catch up. I would recommend, though, that you read the other two before the third if this kind of thing annoys you.

Slade Donovan only knows that he's a vampire. He knows he's having some kind of moon-sickness, but doesn't kno

The Half-Breed Vampire is the third story in this series. I have not had the pleasure to read the previous books, but I can assure you that it reads just fine on its own. This story brings us Slade, a vampire, as he fights to save his clan from a goddess who has talked the local were/shifter clan into starting a war. He teams up with a human woman, Raina, who is the local game ward
This book was good, it wasn’t bad, but it certainly was great either. I’d categorize this book as an ok Vampire genre book with nothing that really makes it stand out from a crowd. It’s just average, I didn’t feel like I knew either Raina or Slade much better by the end of the book as I did in the beginning. Their characters were fairly one dimensional. I didn’t really route for either of them and the characters chemistry didn’t seem to really leap through the pages. I felt more chemistry from ...more

Slade Donovan is a security enforcer for his vampire clan. He doesn’t remember much from his life before he was 8 years old when he was living on the streets and was taken in by his current clan. He made his own choice to become a vampire. Slade struggles with feels that there is something different about him as he experiences “moon sickness” and because of this difference he doesn’t really feel like he belongs.

Slade Donovan can't remember anything of his life before his 8th birthday. In his earliest memories, he lived on the streets, until adopted by the local vampires. For years, he served as part of their mortal security team --and eventually became a full blooded vamp. He'd do anything for his brethren. So when his superior tells him to help a lovely game warden track some special wolves, he agrees, even though he knows the wolves are actually weres who'd love nothing more than to tear him apart.

Vampires have recently came out of the closet (er, grave), and so far have a pretty decent relationship with the mortals. But the mortals don't know that there are other things that go bump in the night. So when problems arise with the local Weres, the clan must try to take care of things—without the humans finding out.

Slade always felt like an outsider within the Cascade Coven of vampires. Homeless as a small child, he was brought to the coven and trained as one of their mortal foot soldiers. When he was twenty-five, he was given the option of becoming a vampire, which he grasped with both hands. But since his transition he's been plagued every time there is a full moon and he can't figure out why.

So it's close to the next full moon when Slade it assigned to work with a local game warden to hunt some large wo

This book or series of books are unique in my experience in that they are set up as a mini-series similar to what one would find on television. Or course the reader has to wait much longer then a television viewer to read the next episode. Because of this fact however I won’t be marking this book down for not standing on its own merits and for leaving so many questions unanswered.

The first thing that drew me to this series of books was the setting. I am from Washington state so I am familiar wit

The Half-Blood Vampire has a different take on what causes vampirism. Vampirism is treated as a virus. Humans can be injected with vampire blood, or Ichor, and get some of the vampire abilities while not turning into a full-blown vamp. Slade Donovan joined the clan when he was 10 years old and being a Shyeld and part of the clan is all he's every known. But there are mysteries about his parentage and his past that are finally coming to light and will rock his world to its core.

Theresa Meyers is a new-to-me author, but based on this delicious read, I'll definitely be looking out for more by her. The Half-Breed Vampire is the story of Slade Donovan, a vampire who has no idea of his true heritage. He remembers being on the streets, then taken in by his tribe and turned when he was old enough. They are the only family he has - and he is in danger of losing them when they find

3.5 stars - The Half-Breed Vampire is actually the third story in Meyers Sons of Midnight miniseries and even though I haven't read the other books, I didn't have any problem jumping in to Meyer's world – though I suspect fans would have enjoyed catching glimpses of what I am certain were the past pairs who had cameos here.

I have been waiting for this book since last year when I read the first two books in the Sons of Midnight series. And I am so glad its finally available.

I was drawn into the story from the first pages and didnt want to stop reading until I was finished. Actually the only reason I did take a break and stop reading was I did have to go to work the next day and needed some sleep. Although it was still hard to stop thinking about the story and what was going to happen next.

The Half-Breed Vampire by Theresa Meyers was a real fun read. The story and plots were faced paced and left the reader wanting more. The author introduced several mythologies as vampires, weres and a goddess that woks in a fascinating way. The characters flaws and issues only stemmed to make them more realistic and pleasurable.

Questo libro ha alcuni aspetti che mi sono decisamente piaciuti, come la relazione fra Donovan e Reina, la presenza di una dea, e una modalità abbastanza originale di vedere i licantropi. Eppure alla fine mi sono ritrovata a chiedermi: tutto qui?
Dal mio punto di vista la trama aveva potenzialità non sfruttate. Resta comunque un libro godibile ma che lascia insoddisfatti. Non so se il motivo è che non ho letto i primi due della serie, o che sia io a non trovarmi con la scrittura della Meyers, o q

I received this as part of a Goodreads group The Knights of the Round Table giveaway. This was a great quick read. I thought that the characters were well thought out and very believable. And even though the plot centered on the conflict between vampires vs weres, it was done in such a way (with a nice little goddess twist) that didn't have me thinking 'enough already'. Theresa Meyers is a great author and I can't wait to read the previous two books from this series. And hopefully there will be ...more

But when game warden, Raina Ravenwing, wolf whisperer, arrives she inadvertently unlocks his past. Together they go in search of a pack of rare wolves terrorizing the tribe while fighting the attraction bubbling between them. Working together, the half-breed and the wolf whisperer find their passion unfolding as Slade’s true identity threatens ...more
I enjoyed this story but not having read the first two in the series I felt I was missing something sometimes. It could be read alone but there are references to things you can only assume were mentioned in the first two books in the series. I liked the romance but felt it was not too realistic. One minute they were thrust upon each other unwillingly then it seems they are in love. I did enjoy the story line and the action however.

There's something about this book that I still have not identified, because in a way I really liked it, even the plot has a little bit of innovation even if we are still talking about vampires and weres, for example the Greek Goddess, but still I couldn't get to love it, probably I miss the first three of the series, or maybe she doesn't write as I like.
Anyway thanks to Netgalley and Harlequin for the preview!

I did enjoy this book. There was plenty of suspense - the attacks, the world-building, the questions surrounding Slade (who/what is he), and the hunt for the villain. I applaud the author for introducing new vampire and werewolf subtropes in a genre that's had a lot of vampires and werewolves. Well done.
