Excellent Adventure

You would think that the directive would pass out a memo about this Vampires Thirst with all the recent vampires being afflicted. But this Thirst makes for a wonderful story.

This books leaves you addicted with each page turn wondering what was going to happen next. It's one twist and turn after another. Will this hot patient Vampire ever get to claim his mate once he finally finds her.

This book also teaches us that prejudices against people span every walk a lot.

What a fantastic addition to the Vampires Thirst series!! I have read a few of Monica la Porta's other books and this one does not disappoint. It tells the story of Adrian and Lavinia and what a brilliant story it is. It stays true to the series and is full of hot romance, action and surprises. I can't wait for the next in the series!!

This book is very well written, action packed highly entertaining story! You have half breeds, wolves, and vampires .. oh my. You will travel from one location to the next and be kept on your toes.

Now, it is a tad bloody.. but so well put together that it doesnt matter to you. The author did a great job of putting together a well written plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat!

He is rich this Vampire, drives the best cars can have any woman he wants, when the Thirst hit it hit him hard, he had never felt so out of control, the need to feed, to drain them dry, to kill, until t ...more

This is an exciting book that envolves paranormal love at its best.

This is an exciting book that keeps you turning page after page until you finish. The characters are likeable and fun. The author told a great story in a world that I would enjoy reading more books about in the future. Definitely, a great read for anyone who enjoys a good romance. It is especially great as a vampire and werewolf romance.

What a wonderful book this is , Adrian is a daywalker a very old vampire with morals and a strict code my which he lives until the thirst comes from no where to rock the very foundations he lives by. Lavina a half breed trying to stay under the radar of the directive is caught up in what Appears to be a serial killers web. But it turns much more sinister than that, full of twist and turns this book ail keep you hooked till the end ..

Meh...

A few editing errors...like "quitted" which was both a tense error and an imaginary word. The overall writing was good but this isn't something I normally read. Truthfully I found the story exceptionally shallow. A little mystery and a ton of tastefully described sex...and more sex...and more...well, you get the picture. Unfortunately, I bought a couple of the rest of the series while on special price. So I will check them out in hopes they are better...

I LOVED this. Monica has paired two very unlikely characters but it works so well. It is very much a PNR but also a murder mystery. All the characters are great and I'd love a spin off from this book where Mark Lane finds love.
The Thirst can do strange things to it's victims and this series leaves you wondering how they will deal with it and does it affect both parties in equal measure? This is a great addition to the series.

I REALLY enjoyed reading Adrian. I was engaged from beginning to end. I was totally invested in Lavinia and Adrian's relationship and everything that came with it. The drama, the passion, the heart stopping action makes this 4th book in the series a must-read. I definitely recommend it and the first three books too!! Enjoy!!
