Let the Hunt begin…
Blending in with her college co-eds proves difficult for vampire Hunter, Emma Martin, considering the mystical tattoo on her wrist glows whenever Vamps are near. And after three months of silence, the glow is back wi ...more
Emma's near and dear to my heart. She's been with me since early on in my writing career. Violet Midnight was the fourth book I ever wrote! There's a long story behind this novel that I'll share one day, but it's seen it's fair share of excitement, for sure.
I'm just glad it's going to make it to the shelves with Crescent Moon Press. They made a beautiful c ...more

This "new adult" book is set on a college campus, but the main characters are all over 21. Vampire Hunter Emma Martin lost her parents in a car crash that left her "marked" with a mysterious tattoo that glows whenever there are vampires (she calls ...more
We are introduced to a new world of vampires and vampire hunters in Violet Midnight. Emma Martin is a strong young woman dealing with the normal college routine... well, normal except for the detecting and hunting vampires. Emma isn't quite the normal girl she pretends to be. She's strong, she fight ...more

She’s become destined to save humanity and protect those who don’t know about the danger that lurks in the unknown. Jake Cunningham has discovered that he’s destined for something special, too. The attraction between Jake and Emma is undeniable, but Jake’s destiny may be something darker than...more
Violet Midnight is the beginning of new series that I am looking forward to reading; I found I quite enjoyed Lynn Rush’s writing. The plot, characters, and over all flow of the story was written extremely well, I found myself wrapped up in the novel and read it in one afternoon. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series.
So we meet Emma who is attending college by day and fighting vampires by night. She likes to keep a low profile at school and only hanging ou ...more
I'm not much for long reviews, so I'll list three things I absolutely loved about this novel:
1. Jake and Emma's relationship. Their feelings for each other grew with each passing page, and it didn't seem forced. They share an easy camaraderie and work well as a team.
2. The action. Hello. My favorite part of Lynn Rush novels.
3. The original mythos—complex, yet easy to get absorbed in. Well done!
I'm ready for the sequel! :)
It’s not hard to imagine Buffy the Vampire Slayer while reading this inventive vampire tale. The girl on the cover even sort of looks like Buffy. But Emma, the vampire slayer in Violet Midnight, has skills that would put Buffy to shame. Known as a Hunter, Emma has been hunting and killing “Vamps” (as she refers to them) for the past two years, since she woke up from an accident with a tattoo on her wrist that glows whenever the creature ...more
Violet Midnight follows a young woman named Emma. She has been chosen to be a Hunter. She hunts and destroys vampires. She is the only one of her kind, so she tries her best to make sure no one knows of her special powers and the things that go bump in the night. One day she while being forced to go on a party with her best friend Ava, she meets a guy named Jake. Emma does her best to avoid ...more
I'm a little biased, because I already liked Lynn Rush's writing long before I picked up this book. I'm not sure how she does it, but there is never really a point in any of her books I've read where the story lags. The pace is always right on point and they suck you in to the point where you want to read the book in one sitting, and then get made you don't have the next book in the series in front of you to read.

Emma and Jake are two similar characters who ar ...more
Emma Martin is doing the best she can but sometimes it's hard. Trying to balance college and killing the undead is beyond tiring. Good thing, she didn’t sleep anymore. Not ever since her strange glowing tattoo appeared and marked her a Hunter. Now she has no need for food or sleep and with a personal vendetta against the filthy bloodsuckers, she only lives for ridding the world of all ...more
I received Violet Midnight in return for a honest review as part of the Violet Midnight Tour at Bewitching Book Tours. Emma Martin's life changed forever the night she lost her parents, she was welcomed into a new world she didn't know existed. Hey eyes went from brown to Violet, she has a tattoo on her wrist that glows when a vampire is near, her skin in tough unable to be pierced, and she can call objects from her car truck. She has no idea how or why her, but with help from another hun ...more
Emma Martin finds it a bit hard to blend in with her fellow students on campus these days. She's got a glowing tattoo and unimaginable powers and... well, she hunts vampires. Think Buffy with violet eyes and a tattoo that tells her when one is near.
When she's discovered by the handsome Jake Cunningham they have an instant connection and he divulges some in ...more
I'm sorry to say that it just didn't do anything for me. I don't think the writing style suited me. It felt jumpy and quick and too much seemed to be assumed in the conversations and relationships. I didn't engage with the romance as I couldn't en ...more

Emma is freakin' awesome. She is a hunter, although since she is one of a kind I don't really know how everyone knows to call her the hunter, but the name isn't really too important. What is important is that she kicks butt ...more

It is set in college with Emma, who lost her parents in a crash. This is where the tattoo appeared, which glows when vampires are around. How cool is that?! But Jake’s marks are different and soon they di ...more
But initial feelings after I read the book -
To begin with this book reminded me of Buffy the Vampire Slayer - i liked that idea, except the story got so wrapt up in Jake and Emma's romance then it became sort of a cliche story.. The book definitely dipped – there were times when it was like yes this is a good book – fantastic plot and all.. Then other times it was OMG Jake and Emma again (I'll be commenting again on that in my proper review ;) ).. There were definitely some clich ...more
