Review: Vampire’s Kiss by Veronica Wolff
IF YOU’RE GOING TO BE PARTNERED WITH A VAMPIRE, YOU HAVE TO WORK THE NIGHT SHIFT.
By her wits, blood, and sacrifice, so far Drew has survived the intensive training on the Isle of Night. As a second-year Acari, her ultimate goal is to become a Watcher, and now she has a shot at her first mission. Except nothing is as it seems. The vampire Alcántara is as sinister as he is sexy, Ronan is more distant than ever, and it turns out there are other vampires out there. Bad ones.
Ancient, bloodthirsty, and powerful, these undead are really old school. They’ve captured one of the Watcher vamps and are torturing him for information. The only chance to save him is to infiltrate a major summit the baddies are holding on their own island. There will be mortals there, serving as butlers, maids, and various hired help. Drew had better brush up on her skills as a serving girl, because she’s about to go undercover…
But, when their vampire prisoner turns out to be a gorgeous bad boy, Drew’s first mission quickly turns into more than she bargained for…
Full of adventure, vampires, kick-butt girls, and hot guys galore, VAMPIRE’S KISS is the perfect follow-up to ISLE OF NIGHT. Seriously, if you haven’t yet read this series, you are missing out on some good stuff! Wolff pulls you in right away and doesn’t let you go until the very last sentence.
Drew rocks my socks off. Seriously, I love her so much. Full of spunk and sass, she doesn’t let anyone step on her, no matter the punishment she may have to endure. And the guys that follow in her wake only make her more enviable. Seriously, by the end of the novel, Drew has four guys possibly pining for her, each of whom she has a bit of a thing for. I would willingly take any one of them off her hands!
The story line is just as entertaining as Drew’s love life. Wolff’s vampires aren’t your average vampire–sure they are technically dead and drink blood, but there is more to them than that which makes them oh-so compelling. What I really want to know more about is the vampire Trainees. How do they become vampires? What is the process like? I am definitely in for the next novel, if only to have answers to my questions!
Wolff has created an enthralling vampire YA series that has me completely hooked. I can’t wait for the next novel, BLOOD FEVER!
