Jack McShane: lover, killer, seducer, family man, and vampire. In the shadows of Savannah, with its hip nightspots and moss-draped oak trees, Jack is trying to save humankind from a threat it doesn't know it faces: an explosion of the otherworldly, the weird, the wanton, and the wicked.

Tourists are heading to Savannah for St. Patrick's Day—and Jack is racing through tunnel

I just finished this book and was left hanging, literally at the sentence end. I had no idea, when I began this series, that the co-author had passed away. This is such an amazing series, so I am left wondering why the co-author has not continued to write the story?

I enjoyed this book just as much as the others, even though I wondered, when one of the main characters had been eliminated, if Jack would be able to carry the story on his own. There was a point, about a third to half way through, w

Jack McShane is a vampire and his life is a nightmare. As a soldier during the Civil War, Jack laid dying on the battlefield when William Thorne turned him into a vampire. William was not only Jack’s sire, but his mentor and his friend. But now William is dead, killed by the woman Jack loves. When Connie took William’s life, she was turned into a vampire slayer. So now Jack has to not only con

Jack McShane does not have it easy. Not only is he a vampire, his "sire" (the man who turned him) has just been brutally murdered by Connie, the woman he loves, who - oops, bad luck - has just completed the ceremony to become the next Vampire Slayer and is lusting for his blood. And if that wasn't enough, a gang of demons and other double deads have infiltrated Savannah, making the place unsafe for living and undead alike. Only by cooperating can Jack and Connie rid the city of the threat these ...more

Con La vendetta del vampiro possiamo scrivere the end alla serie dei Vampiri di Savannah.
Nel primo romanzo vi avevo accennato circa la possibilità di un sesto libro che la scrittrice stava scrivendo, ma è passato più di un anno da allora e sviluppi al riguardo non ce ne sono stati, quindi deduco che possiamo dire di essere alla fine, con non senza colpi di scena. Prima di scrivere questa recensione ho dovuto necessariamente rileggermi la precedente per cap

The Savannah Vampire series is a well written adult urban fantasy series that is more based in drama and intrigue than romance. (ie.,more like The Noble Dead series than the Black Dagger Brotherhood.) That is not to say there isn't romance and sex in it, it just isn't the purpose of the story, which really is about (vampire) character development. By this 5th book, you really get attached to the crew and NEED to know what happens in the end.

Heartbreak of heartbreaks however, the series hasn't b

I am still disappointed about William's death in the previous book. I really like Jack though and he seems to have grown into a better character in this book. He seems stronger (yet overwhelmed) with his new responsibilities. I'm hating the Seth/Connie storyline though. I just want Connie and Jack to be together. I really hate this Seth complication. As usual, the author leaves us with cliffhangers. Will Rennie survive to become a vampire? What will happen with this new doctor character who want ...more

I have really liked this series in the past, this book had a silly unbeilable feel to it. William, the Father figure vampire is double dead and the characters grief is off and on with silly comments and actions. The emotional level felt in previous books was gone. All the characters except for the twins, were all the same silly mess. The story was all over the place as well, like she didn't know where to go from here, so she opened all kinds of doors ? How sad for me I was waiting for this book ...more

I started and realized that William does not have a voice in this book so I shelved it to read after I read some other ones. I love Jack's wit but I don't see him pulling off an entire book, so....
I just finished and it sucked. That's the bottom line. What was Raven Hart thinking. It made no sense. It is obvious that there will be more but reading a soap opera on a yearly basis is crazy. She needs to think about wrapping up one of her books in a way that makes sense. If a reader likes a series t

*Spoilers below*

The basic storyline is okay, but seems to be just a vehicle for moving the characters lives around. I have no idea what the author's doing, because by the end of the book, she's killed off or moved away or otherwise removed almost all the original characters. I hope it makes sense in the next book.
There's going to have to be almost all new bad guys and alot of new good guys. So basically, Jack's story will be a new series with Savannnah, Werm, the garage gang and Diana & W
Serinin çıkan son kitabı ve kitap 2009 da yazılmış ve bittiği yere bakılırsa seri sonu olarak yazılmadığı kesin yazarda gördüğüm kadarıyla bu tarihten beri hiç kitap yazmamış yada yayıncı devamını çıkarmadı bilmiyorum artık

yani yarım kalmış bir seri ben araştırmadan biten bir seri diye ne zamandır aklımdaydı okuyayım bari diye başladım ama şimdi pişmanım acayip sinir oldum tamda bi yerlere geliyorduk benim gibi yarım şeylere sinir oluyorsanız bence şimdilik okumayın sonra onlarca soruyla kalaka

I speed through this series with an ernest heat and determination to see it to the end. I am now eagerly awaiting the 6th book. It has sex, suspense and humour with a heavy dose of action. You feel with the characters. You find yourself worried about them when you have to put the book down for a bathroom break. You do not even waste time between books you are eager to get to the next installment just to see where the story is going next.

If you can get through the first couple of books, the series gets progressively better. This book is the last of the Savannah Vampire series (I guess). It was a really good, quick read - much easier than others since it is only told from one character's point of view. I just disliked the ending. I felt like too much was left unfinished.
It they had half stars it would be 2 1/2. After losing one of the main characters I'd lost interest. I kept reading because, 1) I'd bought the book, and 2) I wanted to see where it was going from here. I have to say the end was dumb. Soooooooooooo many questions and no answers. I don't know when the next book is coming out, and at this point I don't plan on reading it when it does.

Very disappointed- the series did not wind up at all like I expected. Something differed with the author's style after the first 2 or 3 books. Not sure if there is to be another book after this one...

Love this series. I just hope that the author can get the next(and probably last) book published. She lost her deal with her publisher.

My least favorite of the series. I felt like I was reading a story put together on the fly, as if the author had no ideas where it should go.

Ok, I love the series, but I hated the ending. Killing off one of the main characters is just not cool.

I hated the way this left me feeling, it felt incomplete. So hopefully we won't have to wait to long for the next book in the series.
