Enjoyable Paranormal Historical Romance!

What a fantastic twist to put in a Historical Romance. It's bad enough that the Civil War is going on but when you add a plague of rouge vampires to the mix, the fight between the North and South gets put on the back burner as Cole (Texas Sheriff) and Megan (half vampire), along with a few troops fight to put a stop to the spreading blood disease before it spreads nationwide.

The romance was such a tease throughout the whole book and I have to say that as

Recommends it for: historical fiction fans interested in trying out the paranormal

Rating: 2.5

Quick Take: The setting and integration with actual historical events is quite riveting. However, the romance and character development felt a bit flat to me. All told, I'm not sorry to have read it.

This book initially caught my eye when I saw the title (anything starting with "Night of the" is bound to be horror-rific!) and read the book's description, noted above. You'll notice that the blurb is not completely clear on the setting of the story. So I'll begin this review by noting th

I found this to be a fun read. Yes, I said fun even though there are horrible vampire attacks. I loved the mix of paranormal and historical elements. I'll never think of some of the well-known names in American history in the same manner again. Ms. Graham wrote a very satisfying story for her fans to enjoy. The beginning was full of danger and questions. The middle is perfectly balanced with plot and character development. The ending holds many surprises, big battles and hope for the future. Ove ...more
I received this book from NetGalley as an ARC. I have to say that this is not the kind of book that I would normally read. I was honestly expecting a cheesy paranormal romance novel with lots of steamy scenes and no plot. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Graham sets this vampire novel during the American Civil War and there is quite a bit of historical content in this novel. I wouldn't say that Graham goes in depth about the war but at the same time I found that I had ne ...more

Cody, Brendan, and Cole are all fighting...but not against the North or South. They're fighting a much darker force, one that the rest of the country is ignorant about, something of myths and legends: vampires. Then Megan enters their lives, claiming to be Cody's sister. She seems to be fighting on the same side they are. They accept fairly quickly that she is who she claims to be, but can they trust her? Megan knows a lot about vampires; her and Cody are both half-breeds, so she proves to be a ...more

Masked behind the death and destruction of the Civil War, a more sinister war rages. One of a supernatural kind.

Cole Granger, a Texas sheriff and his friends—a former union soldier and a Confederate native, have put aside politics to fight the real enemy of humanity. Vampires!

Cole has learned that in this war any hesitation could cost him his life. But, in the midst of a battle to cleanse the “disease” from a Union prison he encounters a woman with lightning reflexes and a sassy wit. Only her t

Heather Graham has a wonderful talent for taking bits of history and blending them in with urban fantasy. With Night of the Vampires, set during the Civil War, she creates an alternate history during which our nation was divided and watched brothers fight against each other for what they believed in, while vampires took advantage of the great death tolls to feed and replenish their numbers. For more on Night of the Vampires, to be released November 23, 2010, catch my review soon to be posted at ...more

This book wasn't as tense as the first of the series however, it was a bit more dull. I will read the next one in the series, keeping my fingers crossed that the children of Lawrence Fox finally get to meet their father. I'll be a bit upset if this series goes on and on for several more books before the father appears in their lives. He made a brief appearance in the end but never fully interacted with his daughter or son. Perhaps he never will which would end up as a big bummer.

My rating for this was up in the air, between a 2 or a 3, so I went with 3. And there are several reasons for this.
*I felt like I was reading a History text book for majority of the book. I love Historical Romance novels, but this was insane.
*Two of the main characters in the beginning were similarly named and it was very confusing. A Huge turn off if I have to stop and think of who is who because the author can't think of a name that is different. I know Cole and Cody are not that similar but i
Most of us know how deadly and devastating the civil war is. Now try to imagine it even worse. With a third enemy that doesn't care which side of the war you are on. If you are human, then you're fair game. There is a pestilence that is ravaging the land, both North and South, and that pestilence is an army of savage vampires that seem intent on wiping out the human race all together. Only a select few realize the truth behind the strange deaths. Most choose to believe that it is some strange ne ...more

This is a continuing series that occurs during the Civil War, or as I like to call it , the war of Northern Aggression. The heroine, Megan, was sired by a vampire on his human lover. Megan's father left before she was born, and she spends the book trying to atone for her vampiric bloodline. The hero Cole, is a sheriff from Texas, who saw his town decimated by vampires, and is dedicated to eradicating them from the planet. They are thrown together as Megan searches for her half brother, who just ...more
Two of my favorite genres combined into one book! Historical fiction and the paranormal meet in this great read! Megan Fox, a half-breed vampire, is tasked with going to Washington D.C. by General Robert E. Lee to try to stop the spread of the "disease" as they call it. There she unites with her brother, Cody, who is also a half-breed and meets Cole Granger, a Texan sheriff. Cody and Cole have teamed up with others who are also fighting the outbreak of vampirism. President Abraham Lincoln sends ...more
Review (with a few details that might be spoilerish):

The historical details are what really make this story come alive. Things like the Pinkerton Agency, Lincoln's work on the Capitol, actual Civil War battles, and the Smithsonian Castle. I found these inclusions all the more interesting because I just spent the last year living in Washington D.C. so I was able to reconcile words on the page to reality, all seeming very accurate.

Using Lincoln as a side character was a risky move and one could ha
I won this book from goodreads on dec. 16 and just received it feb, 12. I will read asap and post a review. Thanks goodreads.

Sorry it took so long for me to review this book but life just blew up in my face this last month so I had little to no reading time.

This book for me was just not my style. I thought the writing was flat and I really didn't like the char. very much. This is about a soldier, Cole Granger who is fighting vampires to save the world from a vision the President had from coming
There’s just something about a heroine with the name “Megan Fox” that makes me take that character a little less seriously. I know it isn’t fair, but I can’t help but imagine the actress each time I read the book & wonder if Heather Graham had been watching trailers for Jonah Hex when she was inspired to write this book. Mercifully this book isn’t as horrible as Jonah Hex was. To Graham’s defense though, this is more of a re-imagining of history ala Pride, Prejudice, & Zombies, though. ( ...more
Follow up to Night Of The Wolves Night of the Wolves by Heather Graham where we first met the characters of Cole Granger and Cody Fox in the town of Victory Texas... In this second book we are once again draw into the Civil War era setting and the middle of a more sinister war against the creatures of the night we all call "Vampires"!
Not only is this book chock full of interesting historical tidbits that take place during the Civil War such as numerous battle references and names of historical figures but some interesting and very
As ever I read books out of order and then think, well it would have made much more sense if I had read the other first.

Heather Graham is a wonderful historical romantic suspense author. Her facts and knowledge of the Civil War are rich and add much to the general story.

Though this was an excellent story -- I liked Bride of the Night better. The problem with a star setting is that you can't give a half a star!

If it isn't bad enough the civil war is going on there is a much greater threat.........rouge vampires.

Megan Fox, a half breed vampire is send to Washington D.C. to help put a stop to the spreading of 'the disease'. Here she meets up with her half brother Cody who's joined forces with the Texas sheriff Cole. Cody, also a half breed doesn't know he has a sister and she isn't exactly welcomed with open arms. They believe soon enough that she is Cody’s sister but can they trust her? Cole especially
I promise - this is my last book left over from Halloween! Set at the end of the Civil War, I was interested in how vampires made their way onto the raging battle between the North and the South. Unfortuately, I didn't find out. While the connections to President Abraham Lincoln and specific battles were interesting, the plot rambling with too much background information and not enough action until late in the book. That's what I get for reading Halloween books during Thanksgiving.
Paranormal Suspense
I highly recommend reading "Night of the Wolves" first before reading this one so you know who some of the key players are.

Megan is a vampire hunter from the south who is in search of her step-brother Cody and to find her father. Cole is a Texas sheriff who has put down a previous vampire infestation with some other vampire hunters from the South. He's best friends with Cody who is Megan's half-brother who he didn't know exsisted. Cole and Megan collide in a Virginia prision during another vampi
This book is set in civil war era America. There is a "plague" happening during the war. The plague of vampires attacking the soldiers.

Cole (with partners Cody and Brendan) are sent to take care of the situation where they come across Megan who claims she is there for the same reason. There is no trust between Cole and Megan at first. They are then sent to Harper's Ferry to handle the plague there.

This is not your typical vampire book... In fact I wondered if it was more like vampire zombies. So
I'm not a big Heather Graham fan. I've tried several of her books and this is the first I've finished. She excelled in this paranormal romance, with just the right amount of history thrown in. She portrayed President Lincoln just the way I've thought him to be. A man who loved this country, his family, and the people.

She had great characters, even though she could have utilized them better. She acted as this was a second book and we had already heard Cody's story. I would have enjoyed Cody's sto
I am usually pretty lenient in my standards for romance novels, but this one just about fell short in every aspect. The plot was slow and only mildly interesting. The romance was awkward and barely there. And the entire novel was riddled with typos. I have enjoyed other books by Heather Graham, but this one will make me be more selective in which book I grab off the shelf.

This book, which is the sequel to Night of the Werewolves, takes place during the civil war in the North. There's been a rash of violent killings and reappearances of "diseased" soldiers from both sides of the war line. Cole Granger, sheriff from the first book, is deep in the fight to control this disease with fellow comrades Cody Fox and Brendan Vincent. He expected lots of things, but not the beautiful and dangerous Megan Fox, a woman claiming to be Cody's long lost sister. Together they must ...more
I tried, but I can't get through this book. When I picked it out at the library, I saw "soldiers," and "vampires" on the backcover blurb. The cover art involves a manly chest and a headless hero and I thought "oh, supernatural romance, this will be fluffy. Staking and snogging. Perfect beach read." Well. What the blurb neglects to mention is that the story is set during the Civil War. That's right. The Civil War. And not in a subtle sort of way either. After Abraham Lincoln showed up to exhort o ...more

I received an ARC from for Night of the Vampires by Heather Graham. I had read a few books by Heather Graham and had found them enjoyable, light reads. However, I found this book a struggle for several reasons, primarily that the the Civil War setting felt like window dressing to me. While there was a wealth of historical detail, the book just did not seem to be firmly rooted in the period. I never formed an emotional investment in any of the characters, something which I always ne ...more

I am torn with these books. I love the history aspect of them, being set during the civil war, and this book partially takes place in Harper's Ferry, a town I have been in so I am familiar with the setting but I am unable to get into her vampire books as much as I can her other books. I did enjoy the book, but I did not enjoy it as much as I do her books with a more ghostly plot. I am not connecting to the characters in this book as much as I would like. The writing is still solid and it is a de ...more
Wasn't really blown away by this book. The story itself was a little intiguing. The prologue really had me excited about reading the book. Once the story got rolling along it really didn't take of from there. This was more of the traditional vampire story where they could be killed with holy water, stakes, etc. The romance was not fully developed either. The two main romantic leads: Cole Granger & Megan Fox blended into the background. I wouldn't really consider this a romantic thriller it w ...more
Lissa Leadford
Another wonderful story from heather graham! Tooke a while to get into it because i typically don't care for books dealing in different times from now. But this book made me interested in the civil war and Abraham Lincoln. That's one thing i love about HG's work. She uses real places, people, and events. I find myself googling certain things to learn more about them. I can say now that on my bucket list is to visit key west, fl and new Orleans, la. The only thing that really bugged me was that t ...more
Cristina (a book away from an episode of hoarders)
I think that my 3 star rating reflects more on myself rather than this book.

It was interesting and tightly paced. The characters seemed well rounded and developed and I know very little about the time period that this story is set in (Civil War - History wasn't my favorite in school) but it seems fairly accurate from my sketchy memories.

The problem lies in the fact that I am pretty much sick to death of vampires.

If you're not, this is a solid read.
