4.5 - "Forget everything you think you know..." Stars!

We return to the Dark Protectors universe for book 8 in my favorite ever Rebecca Zanetti series. I have to admit I wondered how she would manage to glean more full length books from a series that had already been pretty much been fully explored, but with a unique twist, a little artistic license and a having previously spent a few hundred years locked away in a sphere in another realm we are now introduced to Ronan Kayrs.

The guy was sexy on a sexy stick of pure melted sexiness…

I don’t think I have ever made a secret of the fact that this series is my all-time favorite. The read the original books whilst going through a pretty dark time, and they were one of the few highlights of it. Who knew a war between Vampires and Demons could turn into someone’s happy place! But for me, you just have to say the surname Kayrs and it will produce a smile.

"I spent four hundred years seeing your face and feeling your soft touch in my dreams…"

For me this series is also the most consistent from the author when it comes to the quality of writing, characters, and story-lines, and for that reason I did start Vampires Faith with a little trepidation, we all know the phrase; 'flogging a dead horse' and I have to admit I did wonder if this return to the series was based more on keeping milk flowing from a well proven 'cash cow' rather than having anything more relevant to add to what has already been a series that will be hard to top.

He needed to know her better before he could woo her.

I with the premise of this book, the new characters introduced (as well as a few we already know) and the bigger story arc the author has opened there is a high chance that the forthcoming books will offer enjoyable additions, Vampires Faith itself was enjoyable, you get the usual character traits from Rebecca in that Ronan, is deliciously alpha, a little old fashioned, and a lot growly, and as usual Faith is no shy, retiring violet. The secondary characters were developed enough to make you eager for their own personal stores in future books and the introduction of the little known Kurgan-cyst and the plot surrounding their leader is likely to be the mainstay of the backstory for the entirety of the series.

"The foreplay was nice and all that, but you have no claim on me."

There were however some glaring similarities from the original series, in a way that felt like the author is essentially recycling a few tropes that were popular from it, and I have to say that one of my gripes that seems to flare up every couple of books is the characterization of the leading heroine. I find there is a fine line between confidence and independence in a woman, before its steps into dumbass-big-headed-arrogance territory, and we were bordering on that a couple of times with Faith’s behaviour in this book. That-said it wouldn’t have been the story it was if she hadn’t done a few of the things she did, but it’s the reluctance to take responsibility for your fuck-ups that is what mainly grates on this readers nerves.

"You beat here and always will. Everything I am or will ever be is yours…"

All-in-all a really good start. I’m glad to be back in this world, and I am pretty sure that the more this story arc develops the more of the original Kays clan will be included in its telling. I look forward to seeing how things play out in future books.
