Aphrodite, goddess of love and lust, is not impressed. After giving up her penthouse suite in trendy Manhattan to go monster hunting around the world, she finds herself in a sad hotel room in Vancouver with a decidedly distracted Loki. She hadn't expected this job to be so serious, and her Norse partner isn't exactly bo

4 - Two worlds - the old and the new, mortal and immortal - collided. Stars!

The Vampire of Vancouver picks up Aphrodite and Loki’s story straight after the first book in the series; The Maenad of Manhattan, left off. I really like where Liz Meldon is taking this couple, what with the mix of Gods, Godesses and mortals, the paranormal and its beings are also included in the story as well. It makes for a unique blend of characters all with their own special skills and abilities. The combining with

This is such a fun and clever series... lots of giggles... I really liked book one, but I liked this second installment even better than the first. Aphrodite cracks me up... Love Goddess aka Vampire killer!
Aphrodite and Loki make a really fun couple as Gods trying to cope with living in modern society. Aphrodite is now a love columnist and Loki is working as a supernatural Private Investigator. Since Gods are no longer worshipped in modern times, they do not have the same powers as they once ha

I always love the banter in Meldon's books, and these two main characters are especially excellent at it. Because two powerful beings are in charge of this series--Loki and Aphrodite--it was inevitable that their strong personalities would clash at some point. That point is this book, friends.

Loki is focused on the job and the job only, whereas Aphrodite sees the love between their targets. They're both stubborn mules, so you can imagine how well that went down.

And that's before everything escal

Aphrodite and Loki are working together, to find a missing girl. But there are other forces at work, and Loki and Aphrodite come face to face with creatures of the night, all the while fighting their obvious need for each other, but neither will admit it.

The second book in The Lovers And Liars series, and its longer than book one,132 pages, taking it up a peg, in my opinon.

Zeus help us! Now we are talking about more than Pantheons and some crazy chick. The intrigue is deeper, Vampires and new (or very old forgotten) powers are becoming a tangible reality. What appeared first as an easy job soon reveals deathly traps even for the Trickster. And while Loki runs after new adepts, Aphrodite is reminded of her own affinity (not pink and frills apparently).
I loved how Loki rage looked like a man-child tantrum in the eyes of the god

I was intrigued when I read the synopsis of this story. I love reading stories about different mythologies and seeing those characters brought into the modern world is something that will always snag my attention. If you haven’t read The Maenad of Manhattan, I would suggest you do that before diving into The Vampire of Vancouver. It explains a lot about how Loki and Aphrodite met, what their lives were like before meeting, and how they decided to team up. It adds some good back story to who they ...more

Yay! So I had been excited to read this story but hadn't had the time until now to read it. I had read and reviewed the first book in this series, Maenad in Manhattan and absolutely loved it! The writing is still as lovely as always and the pages flew by as I read. No worries about this being a slow read despite it being longer than the previous book.

I still loved this book, almost as much as the first one but just in a slightly different way. This time Loki and Aphrodite are in Vancouver which

I won't ever rate my own work, but I'll definitely leave a little blurb about what it was like writing it!

I had an amazing time writing the second book in the series. It was a time for me to really explore these two familiar characters, and try to decide what will make them different from what readers expect of them, yet still keep them Aphrodite and Loki.

All I can say is that my homegirl Aphrodite went from my least favourite Greek goddess to my most over the course of reading about her and c

This book ticks all the boxes for me. I’m not going to give a plot rundown – it’s all there in the blurb, but suffice to stay Loki is still on the hunt for worshippers and Aphrodite is still helping him. That alone, is an excellent part of the plot. Loki’s search means we get to explore different cities. Manhattan, Vancouver and I can’t wait for Idaho.

Aphrodite is a great female character. Snarky, intelligent and tough, she’s what fiction needs. There is no damsel in distress and, for me, this s

The Vampire of Vancouver is the second book in the Lovers & Liars series by Liz Meldon. Loki and Aphrodite are back, ridding the world of troublesome immortals for the Humans money and worship. Staying in a not so fancy hotel in Vancouver hunting vampires is not what Aphrodite had in mind when she accepted Loki's offer, and dealing with a softhearted woman who seems to be making this job harder than it should be is not keeping Loki in a good mood. With their two totally different attitudes a ...more

This is the second book in the Lovers and Liars series and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Aphrodite and Loki are headed to Vancouver to locate the missing daughter of an affluent couple. Aphrodite is not happy with the hotel chosen by Loki or about the train journey she had to endure. In this book we get too see Loki's point of view which was a treat. He is strong, cunning, persuasive and stubborn in his pursuit of his goals. He is irritated when Aphrodite interferes but ends up with a better deal on ...more

Before reading The Vampire Of Vancouver, please make sure you read The Maenad Of Manhattan, you will get a better idea of Loki and Aphrodite’s relationship and how it began.

I love all things mythological and paranormal, combine the two and I am one happy reader to put it lightly. Add in a little humor, some hot sex scenes and a little drama and suspense and I am an even happier reader. The Vampire Of Vancouver has all those things and more. I kept seeing the fir

Aphrodite and Loki returns once again on another case this time in Vancouver.

Aphrodite finds herself in a sad hotel room in Vancouver with Loki hunting monsters who is distracted. She is not happy giving up her penthouse apartment in Manhattan and did not expect to take this job as serious. She did not expect to be ignored or she would not have come along, figuring their sexual chemistry would be played out in the bedroom.

I loved this book tremendously. It was chock-full of my favorite things: fantastical creatures, romance, really descriptive action, and some tasteful sensual scenes.

Meldon is very skilled with words; her descriptions of both Vancouver and Aphrodite's growing feelings for Loki really painted a real picture (and made me want to move to the beautiful city immediately!).

I enjoyed how the two vampire lovers were women; that was a nice touch. Meldon is not afraid of a bit of gore and violence either

This book was just as good as book one in the lovers and liars series. The author has a way of writing that leaves you craving more. I love the witty edgy main characters. In this book Aphrodite and Loki are in Vancouver on a job, that job is to find a newly turned vampire and return her home to her parents, along with the head of the woman who sired her.

I feel that it was a little better than the first book. I felt the characters were developed a bit more. You see more of Loki and Aphrodite and I loved it.

Liz Meldon just brings all of the worlds together into one place. We've got Norse mythology, Greek mythology, vampires... all sorts of paranormal happenings all in one cover. I love the whole big melting pot of fiction.

Loki and Aphrodite are so fun together. They both have the huge egos of Gods... but when you get in their heads they're really just as self-conscious and anxious over what others think of them as everyone else. They like each other... but worry that they don't really like each ot

A great sequel. I'm beginning to get very attached to these characters. Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess, is still writing her love advice column for a Manhatten magazine but is now doing so on the road with Loki, the Norse God. Loki is a, sort of, private detective who takes on jobs not only for the money but for the worship that he also demands in payment from his clients. As we all know God's need followers and worshippers to keep their powers! These two are great together. The humour

I give this book a 5 on creativity because it was my first time seeing well known characters in this such a way. The two main characters are Loki and Aphrodite however the author puts her own spin on things. My overall opinion was that I personally didn't enjoy how Loki's character was written even though I did enjoy his interactions with Aphrodite. I also liked that the Aphrodite was a strong charact

This picks up where we left of in Maenad of Manhatten, and I liked this one better than book one. Aphrodite didn't seem AS shallow and boring as she first did to me in book 1.

In this book it sees Aphrodite travel to Vancover with Loki in search of a missing daughter of a affluent family. Which in turn leads them to Vampires. They soon realize that more is at work than they initially thought, and that then changed the deal Loki had made with the girls father.

Author Liz Meldon nails clever and witty dialog in Vampire of Vancouver, this new adult follow up to Maenad of Manhattan. She expertly weaves mythology against a modern backdrop. It's polished, irresistible, and dangerous. Also note, definitely for a mature audience. Aphrodite and Loki are well developed and unlikely allies who are like fire and water, but lovable and adorable in their own way. The drama and conflict is intense as gods, monsters, and mortals push and pull between the old world a ...more

I am really loving this series. This book was longer and meatier than the first (haha...longer and meatier... #ImTwelve). It really should be called "The MisAdventures of Loki and Aphrodite."

Definitely liked the delving into more of the folklore around how the Gods and Goddesses got their power, and the general plot with the vampires. Still, I'm a gal who likes the longer stories, and while each of these novellas are full-length, I still wish Meldon would take them into the full-length territor

Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed reading The Vampire of Vancouver. The story is about Aphrodite and Loki gods from the Old World living in the modern world. The story was great. Aphrodite and Loki go vampire hunting and Loki is kidnapped. Aphrodite to the rescue. However, it seems someone is after Aphrodite. I highly recommend this one.
