This book had a great story behind it; yet, the delivery of the pertinent information felt like fly balls being hit from every direction. It was clumsy, disjointed, and more focus was placed on character detail than plot.

* "Dead by Dusk" is set in a tiny Italian village, where an archaelogical dig has loosed a demon. Much is like "The Awakening", also by Shannon Drake. Both start with the mysterious mutilation and murder of a lovely innocent, although this book has more blood and carving, in keeping with the medieval origin of the darkness. The couple are estranged, but come together for work, here acting, helpful friends and relatives are indistinguishable from villains until the final pages [and spoiler - are ...more
I think maybe I should have liked it more than I did. The characters had their own distinct personalities, and I liked the story line and how it got to the end. The action and love scenes were the same as usual, terrific, but I didn't enjoy it as much. It was lacking a little 'oomph', but I can't quite put my finger on what was wrong. Having read the rest of the series, I don't know how many times the words: 'what the hell?', came out of my mouth. I got confused at certain points, but then it wa ...more

Jade and Lucian make a small appearance when an Italian dig releases a long-buried evil.
I got this from my husband's grandmother, but...we apparently don't have at ALL the same taste in books. I hadn't realized that this was the sixth book in a series or I probably wouldn't have even started it. But even if I had known what was going on, I don't think I would have enjoyed it--the writing just seemed awful to me. But then, I do not read romance novels. This might be a very good one, if you like that sort of thing. I just don't.
Part of Shannon Drake's vampire series. This one took me a year to get through. I didn't like the characters- did not CARE about them at all. And the guy and girl who got together- they had already been together before and broke up- I don't like those types of stories- if YOU do though, you'll LOVE this book. I mean, if it didn't work out the first time.... why does it work out the second time?? HELLO!
