Just a note: I would give this book 4 1/2 stars out of 5 but I can't figure out how to do that here - just wanted to let you know.

I am not one for putting spoilers in my reviews. But what to do when a book is almost one giant spoiler? This was one of hardest reviews I’ve written. I loved the book and want to tell you why…but how to tell you that without ruining anything. Hmmmm......So here’s my attempt at a non spoilery – yet interesting book review.

Bring on the Night is about Faith.

The first thing that put me off the series was the passing of time between book 2 and 3. As another reader said, they thought they'd missed a book since so much time had passed. I quite agree.

The continued unresolved sexual tension between David and Ciara is tiresome. I think it's been drawn out too long. I felt that Ciara's time at Control was too short and I would have liked to have seen more of her training. To jump into the world 2.5 years after book 2 and right into her training and then ri

I love the WVMP books by Jeri Smith-Ready. They make me happy. Last night I picked up Bring on the Night... and I just finished it. They're fun, they're quick. They are a hell of a read.

I think I liked this one the best so far. Smith-Ready always manages to tell very inventive stories, but in this one she has surpassed herself. In the town of Sherwood, Ohio there is a fatal outbreak of a very extreme bout of chicken pox. At the same time Ciara and company encounter the walking dead, zombies!

I'm lucky enough to have read an advance copy of the manuscript and loved the book. I think all of Jeri's fans, in particular the WVMP fans will love this book too once it's released.

Well, that was interesting. I knew from reading the blurb of the last book (total spoiler!) that (view spoiler), but I was not expecting it to happen under those circumstances. I didn't realize that she would regret it so much and have so many doubts. Her relationship with Shane went all topsy turvy, too. Some of that was annoying. But I realize that they needed to be able to work through the issues of Shane's belief that his soul-and Ciar ...more

It seems like Ciara's life is never normal or boring, especially since she started working at the radio station. I mean come on how many people lived as grifter's when they were kids, have a vampire for a boyfriend, and even has a vampire dog. She also has to start working for an organization she really doesn't want to, to repay a debt for her boyfriend.

With all of this craziness going on it is a wonder that she even has any normal aspects to her life at all. But she does somehow manage to do no
I'm a little too tired to grasp it all, but a summary would be that it's a very poignant and thoughtful kick-ass adventure. The Big Bad was a little lame because I didn't feel emotionally invested, but it totally wasn't the point. The book was about love and trust, faith and self-confidence, loss and love again. Many different kinds of love are portrayed. Faith is examined, reexamined, turned upside down and made to dance a little jig. The author took the story in directions I never expected, an ...more

This was a fabulous read!!! WOW!!!

I recommend you read the first two books so that you get the real impact of vampire friends and human friends in this book!!! I wish I could tell you more without spoiling it!

There is a huge OMG moment that will make your jaw drop and changes everything...

Not to mention that this series with OCD vampire radio DJs is so different and fun!

Defintiely grab a copy! You'll love it! :)

The only thing I didn't like was that this book started almost 3 years after book 2 ended, with a relationship btw two characters that were no where near dating, suddenly engaged in this book. Sorry but that was too much for me. I have read books in a series that did that, but I understand why it was that way. In this book I didn't really see the point. Other than that, it was a great addition to the series. And this time, there were zombies. Braiiiiins...

Another urban fantasy with vampires, this time running a radio station. Ciara gets involved with a quasi-governmental organization that polices supernatural beings. But when she catches a deadly disease, her only hope may be becoming a vampire herself. The one interesting idea here is Ciara has a sort of anti-faith so her blood can cure holy water burns. I might have liked this better if I had read the previous two books in the series but nothing here compels me to seek them out.

This book is the third installment in the WVMP series and in my opinion it is the best one. That summary up there is good, but it does not even come close to summing up everything that happens in this book. There is also one EVENT (I put in all caps because it is a big deal) that I am not even going to attempt to talk about because I would not want this surprise ruined for me, so I am not going to do that to you. Let me just say, it is big and you will definitely know it when it happens.

As I’m working my way through this series, I have to say that I’m really liking it a lot more. I found myself more interested and engrossed with Bring on the Night as I kept reading it. Maybe it was because the characters were more established or that the plot is pretty unique and entertaining, but this one definitely held my attention a lot longer than the first two did.

The third book in the amazing WVMP series brought so many new aspects to the table, I couldn't put it down! Our favourite Vampire DJs are back and dealing with more trouble than they've faced before. I loved every moment.

There's a bit of a time jump between books 2 and 3, and I'll admit I thought I'd missed something at first. I was almost certain there was more to the story than what was in front of me - but that was probably because I wanted to see every detail of Ciara and Shane's life, I di

Excerpt from my review - originally published at Offbeat YA.

Pros: Original take on the overused vampire theme. Interesting, mostly tridimensional characters. Lots of adrenaline, even in the not-action-driven moments.
Cons: More graphic sex scenes in this one (if you aren't into the stuff) - even an almost-threesome with two girls involved. Gorier than the previous chapters. Radio station and music play a big role in the series, but they're less prominent almost nonexistent in this installment.

Jeri Smith-Ready's WVMP series has, from the start, been a refreshing splash of color on the blood red landscape of vampire fiction. (And that is possibly the worst opening sentence I've ever written for a review.) Fortunately, she is a much better writer than I am. If you haven't read any of this series yet, make your way over to Wicked Game and start there. You'll want to follow these characters from their literary genesis.

The problem with reviewing Bring on the Night is trying to write a mean
Two and a half years after the events in book #1; Ciara just completed her training at Control and finishing her study. Her relationship with sexy vampire DJ, Shane was moving forward (he proposed to her). Her best friend, Lori, was marrying Ciara's boss, David. Things were going nicely ... or not. Because suddenly, there seemed to be cases of deadly chicken pox epidemy and then .... zombies were rising!

Oh, my, I love this series more and more. I think this one is my favorite (and the best) yet.

BRING ON THE NIGHT picks up 2 1/2 years after Bad to the Bone and initially the giant leap forward feels a little disorienting. Honestly, I’m not sure why there is such a big gap between books 2 and 3. Several times during the first few chapters I checked to make sure I hadn’t missed an entire book (I hadn’t) or maybe a bridging novella somewhere (nope). There easily could have been another book, or two, before this one, but it feels almost like when a

I've been waiting for Bring on the Night since I read the last page of Bad to the Bone. This is a great series and Bring on the Night did not disappoint. As a matter of fact, I think it' my favorite of the three books in the series so far. If you haven't read this series before, the (very) basic premise is that the radio DJs at this station are all vampires. Each is from a different era, and in this world vampires are "stuck" in the era they died in, they have a lot of trouble with change (and O ...more

BRING ON THE NIGHT is the third of five planned books in the stellar WVMP Radio series, and it is clearly a turning point. Needless to say, it is impossible to be specific about anything that happened in this book without there being spoilers. In the interest of NOT being that person that messes up your reading experience, then, I will instead focus on how BRING ON THE NIGHT is yet another example of Jeri Smith-Ready’s world-building and characterization talent.

Bring on the Night is about Ciara, a once upon a time con artist who is dating a vampire. In this world of vampires, there is an agency called "Control" that watches over the vampires and makes sure they assimilate correctly into society. Apparently this is necessary as the vampires tend to get stuck in the decade they were turned in. They then have difficulties accepting new styles and coping with modern electronic equipment. It almost sounds like they are any normal human, wanting the sounds a ...more

Romantic horror is a fascinating new genre. Of course it may not be new, just new to me. Scary stuff with lots of lusty behavior seems to rile the natives. Look at Shades of Gray, sadomasochism porn for the masses. In this case we have vampire human lust and rock and roll with a leavening of zombie.

Again, you can see my thoughts on the series as a whole, and on books 1-2, in their respective places, so I'll just add a few comments about Bring on the Night, book 3 in the WVMP Radio series. If I have my facts right, this will not be the last in the series, there is currently a novella online on Jeri's blog, along with the last full book coming out sometime next year.

This entire series is just completely...meh. I wanted to like it; there's a unique take on vampires, a heroine that should be interesting, side characters that should also have been interesting - but none of them really were. The writing was uninspired, the characters flat, the romance kind of creepy, and any real tension developed was solved via various forms of deus ex machina. It's not godawful or even terrible, just rather dull and forgettable overall. I couldn't even get through the last bo ...more

I don't think I could have loved this book more! Even though its about vampires, the characters all seem so real. Ciara battle with her changes and didn't just accept them and bounce back like lots of other paranormal heroines.

Bring On The Night is the third book in the WVMP Radio Series. I can't believe how addicting this series is. I thought I would read one book and then continue on with my TBR list for a while. I read a few books and then had to return to this series. It is THAT good. In fact, I would read the final book next if I didn't have other Book Nerd commitments.

A decent book to read to pass the time. At first it disappointed me a little that Ciara had switched from unbeliever to believer by the end of the book. I've got nothing against characters who believe in God, but unbelievers need heroines and role models too. But I've somewhat changed my mind about that. Faith is definitionally (to me anyway) not something that you reason your way into. So it makes a certain amount of sense, or has a certain amount of plausibility, however you want to word it.

It’s definitely different than most vampire books I’ve read, which is a plus. The downside is that I grew bored with it at several points. The “tension” between Ciara and David was annoying because she is with someone, and he is engaged to her best friend. And, the crazy vampire’s (forgot his name) lusting after her is just plain creepy/gross. I’m also not into the “erotic” storyline, but expected it, so I wasn’t surprised. All in all, not a horrible read…just not my cup of tea.

I felt like this book didn't know where it was going, or what it was trying to be. Events seemed to occur when it was necessary for the plot to move on, and similarly ignored when Ciara needed to be in turmoil over something going on in her personal life. Characters appeared suddenly, did something, and then disappeared again until they were needed again. Puzzle pieces came together at the end of the book to solve a mystery that hadn't really been a pressing issue throughout most of the story. C ...more

Bring the Night by Jeri Smith-Ready is a popcorn vampire novel, as soon as you read it you have forgotten it. It starts out as action, gets caught up in romance and then brings angst into the picture. It doesn't know where it is going. It has some interesting and new concepts but never fully explores them so you are left feeling unsatisfied. OK if you have nothing else to read but I wouldn't buy a copy.

The jump in time between this book and the last (3 years) was a bit off-putting at first. Though, now I can see why the time lapse was necessary. At several points, I became sincerely frustrated with the choices that characters were making.y frustration kept me reading. I felt like someone who wanted to shake their good friend and say "what are you doing?" I'm curious about what happens next. The "Code Black" teaser about the next book grabbed my interest.

Not the best book in the world and I found it pretty corny but hey I finished it! that has to count for something right?

I had a bit of trouble on what to rate this book... think i'll go 2.5 stars.
