Sam Parker is a vampire with a gift so strong and substantial that she is invited to partake in a test for a place in the Grand High Master Vampire’s private army. She finds that not only has the army never included a woman, but it has never included a Sventé vampire; a breed that is regarded by the super strong Pagori breed and the hypnotically beautiful Keja breed to be ...more

I am so excited!!! I just discovered a new vampire series!!! And I am beyond thrilled!!!

Suzanne Wright has created the most exciting and yes, different world of vampires in her Deep in Your Veins Series.

Three different kinds of vampires, ….and each vampire with their very own special powers.
“Three breeds? Well you see, basically, you know how there are varying accounts of vampires? Some humans report us to be terribly aggressive with hulk-like strength, some report us to be entra

This book is immediately hitting my love-you-forever-and ever-shelf, and in honor of this fantastic author a new shelf has been added; Addicted to this author. This book was a real honest to goodness, 'I don't want to put you down ever' page turner.

Oh my gosh, so much fun! And, I had a few doubts at first, but they were quickly thrown out the window as the baddest badass female heroine ever made me want her in my girl-tribe.

Sam (Samantha) is in the weakest of the three vampire races, but she has a special ability that is rarely seen and is therefore offered a job with the vampire king. Now, first I need to address the "special snowflake syndrome" that might go through your mind. Yes, she's special, but she isn't the most powerful vampire e

So, then, vampires are sexist. You know who else is sexist? Suzanne Wright.

But hey, Wright did her homework about sexism, worry not: so she knows it's, like, when men don't recognize women as their equals. Or something. That's why she came up with Sam, our resident kick-ass heroine, a "crazy bitch" with a foul mouth and an attitude who'll teach these misogynists what's what. Or something.

In Wright's vampire world, there are two kinds of women:

The question I asked myself several times while reading this book was 'why haven't I read this sooner?'
I suppose in this case it's easy since neither the title nor the original cover appealed to me I'd continually skipped past it in fact it was only seeing my friends reviews come through that made me even look twice.

Why would any author use giggle, fucking giggle to describe how all the men laugh, at all times. There are no guffaws, deep belly laughs, chuckles, or chortles to be had in this book. You get a laugh or snicker here or there, but fuck the word giggle. Now that that's off my back, to the ac ...more

Well, what can I say... Suzanne Wright has done it again! She's the queen of the strong, feisty female leads and the deliciously brooding alpha males! From the moment I started reading this book I could not put it down. Chapter after chapter the story became more interesting and before I knew it I'd already reached the final page. With all the fights and action going on as well as Sam and Jared's constant bickering, there was never a dull moment and all the equally unique side chara
I've read the Phoenix pack series by this author, and since I loved those books, I thought I would give this one a try. Holy shit this book was good. I think I have a little girl crush on Sam. She was "take no prisoners" fucking awesome. I want to be her when I grow up ;)

Jared...he was one hell of a hot badass, alpha asshole. I love that asshole. So when I grow up to be Sam, I want a Jared for myself !!!

Suzanne Wright and Vampires! Need I say more?

Badass Vampire Chick meets sexist Vampire! There are three races of Vampires and two of them are elite while one is looked at as lower class. Samantha is one of the Svente vampires that are generally looked down upon, but her vampire gift is one that is rare and usually only ever seen in Pagori Vampires which are the highest class.

It's official, Suzanne Wright writes the absolute best female leads!

Sam is smart, mouthy, strong, mouthy, level-headed, did I mention she is mouthy? Loved her!!

Sam is a Svente vampire. These vampires are more human like than the Pagoris (known for their super strength) and Kejas (known for their hypnotic beauty). All vampires have gifts. Sam's gift is she is a Feeder. She can feed on the energy surrounding her, absorb it and control it. She can also take gifts from other vampires

I've changed, that's for sure. While I love Jared, I also found him - this time around - bratty, annoying, childish and frankly...weak. As for Sam - this time around - I find a bit too strong headed. While I understand her reasons, it's just, yeah, too much. Also, something I've noticed why reading paranormal/fantasy lately, it that the women in them are just so powerful, unique and perfect and so forth... and it's st

*** This definitely was a delicious and fun paranormal read. It focuses a bit more on action and paranormal aspect with a side of paranormal romance/steam. If it is for you proceed to read it you won't be sorry as I have yet to be disappointed by S. Wright's stuff. ***

Sam Parker is a Sventé vampire who is offered a chance at being a part of The Grand High Master's personal army/legion. She jumps at that chance as it would help her


It was concise, to-the-point, gripping, thrilling, and entertaining as hell.:D

A vampire race with powerful gifts, preparing for the imminent battle.

A strong-willed heroine, set on proving herself against the prejudice of her own race.

A commander antagonizing and driving her nuts.

A laughing-out-loud, crazy-as-hell adventurous, sexually charged experience merged with the telltale signs of romance.

I love Suzanne Wright's imagination, humor and a perfect set of main and secondary characters to hold every aspect of a brilliantly interesting suspenseful plot filled with action, bickering, banter, thrill and tension...just in the right moment, just for the perfect imaginary set of display...

If you are looking for a fantasy thrill with smart, strong and feisty vampire heroine, that can take on an arrogant, smug and dominant alpha to change his perfectives and further

I enjoyed this book - nice storyline, great characters (especially Sam!) and full of humour.

However, I will say that the experience was marred a little bit by a few things.

There were a few little mistakes scattered throughout the book which didn't bother me overmuch, but the repeated use of 'seen' instead of 'seeing' (as in, 'seen as' instead of 'seeing as' or 'seen that' instead of 'seeing that so and so') was a bit distracting.

I also wished that the characters weren't constantly described as

I F-LOVED this book. It's x-men meets vampires, superpowers and all. And it's a series too..
The heroine was kick-ass, sassy and took no nonsense from the hot, arrogant, sexist hero!
Loved this couple, loved the banter and this story had the best action.

When Sam Parker was turned into a vampire, she did not realize her life would take a dramatic turn. As a consort/assassin for the last three years for her vile maker, Sam just tries to get by on a daily basis looking for an out. That out comes in the form of a mind changing offer, try out for the Grand High Masters Vampire Army. It is a rare offer especially for a woman, but Sam's gifts are unprecedented and would be a huge asset to the Army.

Giggling. It is a word I now cringe to see on the page. Everybody giggles in this book. Laughing and chuckling do not exist. Every time a strong male character, or even the lead herself, started giggling I was completely pulled out of the book. In real life giggling is annoying, I think on the page it's only made more annoying. Don't even get me started on some of the other grammatical errors.

Yes, this book made me laugh. No, the plot was not engaging. The male lead, Jake, was horrible. He is a

I listened to the audiobook, and this is the first time the male narrator plucked my nerves. I usually have problems with the female. Since I will most likely continue with the series, I am hoping his voice will grown on me.

A few weeks ago I was spoiling a book… I was having very much fun… my friend Iva a little less! *wink*

So she said she’ll forgive my bad behaviour if I read this book.

Since I really want her forgiveness I’ve read it and … SHE WAS RIGHT!!!

This book is really, really good!!!

I thought that this would be a usual vampire book, but it was not!

Here the vampires are like super-heroes in Marvel’s comics.

Meh, it's ok.

I found the main characters thoughts and feelings a bit contradictory and nonsensical, so it is not a surprise that the romance did not reach me at all. In addition, I didn't find the characters likable and the male protagonist put me off.

The aspects of the story revolving other characters were, at times, tiresome and overly detailed. Likewise, the relationship between some of the characters and their actions felt generally unrealistic.

Do i now want to have vampire babies with Jared?

Do i now also have a crush on Sam?

Do i seriously recommend you read this book?

I was in the mood for a vampire book (which is already weird since I’m not normally the biggest fan of PNR), and somehow this one stumbled on my sight.
Well, it was a good thing that it did because this was just… awesome.

So, basically Sam is a Sventé vampire, the less powerful of the three breeds of vampires, but she is unusual strong and gifted.
