Series Review:


I LOVE this series! There I said it and I will say it as many times as I need to. Marta Acosta does the impossible and brings something new to the Vampire table with the Casa Dracula series and the result is a hilarious, fun and amazing series that I am sad is over.

Milagros is an aspiring writer who has been burned by her pretentions ex-boyfriend. One night during a literary event for his new book, she meets Oswald and is instantly captivated. They share a kiss and an overzealous bite on her lip changes her whole world. She gets sick and is taken to his family’s ranch to be taken cared of. That is where she finds out that Oswald and his family are Vampires, even though the churn the term and prefer to treat their condition as an allergy to the sun and iron deficiency that makes them drink animal blood cocktails.

Milagros is a spit-fire Latina and I love her for it. She is so different from the regular UF heroine that you can’t help but fall prey to her wits and crazy ways. She takes to Oswald’s family and embraces their “Vampire” culture wholeheartedly, not to mention that she completely embraces Oswald himself!

The Casa Dracula series is not a Paranormal Romance, it doesn’t follow the HEA of one couple through a book, it is a Comedic Urban Fantasy series that definitely has Romance elements and even thought Milagros does get her HEA, the ending might surprise you.

I’m sad this series is over and I’ll miss all the characters, from Oswald’s grandmother and her sharp tongue to the worldly Ian and his sex-appeal. I hope Marta gets a chance to write a new series with Milagros and her man’s adventures! I would totally read that!

If you are an Urban Fantasy fan and feels like you need some new blood *snicker* in the genre, you should definitely read this series, I can’t recommend it enough! =D
