London (the writing team of Lorraine Heath and her son) kicks off an engrossing story of love against a post-war backdrop of human/vampire prejudices, politics and family dysfunction. The first-person, present-tense narrative is a little jarring at first, but you’ll be flying through the pages before you know it. A less-bleak Hunger Games with a Black Dagger Brotherhood twist.
Confession time. The Draug, Caine’s watery main villains in the second big arc of her Morganville Vampires, wasn’t as gripping as the initial race for vampire survival. With the Draug’s defeat, Bitter Blood got back to what’s best about the series -- the power struggle between vampires and humans living in the small Texas town – and let the reader have it with both barrels. Griping, fast-paced, and our favorite characters at their best. Never been to Morganville? Glass Houses is book one.
