Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Vivienne Courbet, and I've been a vampire since 1719. Let me assure you I don't look a day over twenty-nine. You're probably more familiar with my blood sister, Deirdre Griffin, but she's on holiday right now so I thought I'd take center stage and tell you my life story.

Today's review is on The Vampire Vivienne by Karen E Taylor

The Vampire Vivienne is the 5th book in Taylor's Vampire Legacy series and though it does not center on the main character's Mitch and Deirdre, it still flows nicely with the rest of the previous installments.

As the title suggests, the book is written about and from the voice Vivienne Courbet. She was made vampire in 1719 by Max while he and Victor were in Paris. She was the newest of the Ladies of the Night at the local brothel called t
Stavroula V.
Like most vampire tales, the main character takes you though a walk through the ever changing world around her. You love and hate her, and because of this, you won't be able to put this book down.
it was a decent book. You can read this one without worrying about the rest of the series, but I am not sure with the other books.

Its a big ass summary of a great story....

I hated the narrative voice.
