My English review
While receiving the fifth book in the series I thought it was time to get into the fourth. It had been years since I had not plunged into this series, and I admit I forgot a lot of things from the first three volumes. It was still a great pleasure to find the characters that I had discovered earlier, even if it is true that I really do not remember them all.

*Genre* Urban Fantasy
*Review* (Contains series summary)
In Memories We Fear is the fourth novel in the Vampire Memories series.

Also, I can't believe it took 4 books for Eleisha and Phillip to progress in their relationship to something a bit more adult and a little less teenage.
A series of killings in England point to a new-and feral-vampire. Vampires Eleisha and Philip and their human companion travel to London to make contact with the terrified creature, to offer him sanctuary and stop the bloodshed. But the vampire they find is not what they expected...
