Rated 3 out of 5 by from Why do I keep going on...? ***Spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned*** Why do I torture myself by reading this? It seems I have a love/hate relationship with the Vampire Knight series. I can’t help but reading it because the action is pretty awesome and the vampires in it are what you want. Bad, evil, tyrannical, ruling the world, pretty much all seeing and all knowing.Yes I’m rooting for the bad guy in this one. I have an affinity for vampires. So where does all the hate come from? Valentine himself. He’s not swoonworthy. He’s not that big of a badass even though he has his moments. I’ve seen better. I’ve read better. A newbie jedi knight has a better chance at being a badass than this guy. And somehow the ladies love him. And I quote: “Is that some kind of crack?” (female character asking) He explored further with his fingers. “No but this is” Yes ladies and gentlemen, vampires and ghouls, that above actually happened in the book. Pardon me while I go into this insane rabid rage and nearly throw this book across the room. I don’t know about you but someone having a hand on my bum crack isn’t my exact idea of lovely and romantic and could possibly emit a hard slap across the face or a good knee in the groin from me. Not even my fiance could get away with this type of behavior on me. And lo behold Carrasca is also pregnant. For crying out loud when are we going to advocate birth control in novels like these? Did they cease to exist? If this is some kind of idea of romance then this is exactly why I can’t stand romance in novels. It ruins everything. I’ll accept it in YA novels. But this? Not in an action packed book. Please. For the love of humanity don’t put things like this in novels. It’s tacky, ridiculous and just all around wrong. I cannot fathom why. What the heck is so attractive about this piece of meat with barely any personality but is basically used as a tank. I would seriously cheer on for the vampire who can take this POS on and just have a feast. I digress.So besides the action, what the heck do I like about the novel? The secondary characters are really what lets me hang onto this for dear hope that this story will turn into something tolerable and readable. The action is just really great to read and as long as I ignore Valentine’s odious personality and character and just see him for a cardboard stick character that just goes through the motions, yes it’s a tolerable read. Yes the action is really damn good. Yes read it for the vampires and the fighting scenes. Despite all this, am I going to read the next novel? Because of the bloody cliffhanger ending. Yes. Valentine, please for the love of all things human (because there’s a few in the book and there’s going to be fewer if the vampires have their way) stop saying stupid nonsense and stop impregnating the female locals. Seriously. Just stop. Slay the evil guy and stay that way or at least, have them feast on you while I cackle with evil glee.

Editorial Reviews

Knight is a master of deception and tension. (Black Gate) A compelling new world. (Creature Corner) I have no doubt that Knight is going to be a household name in the genre. (Silver Oak Book Reviews)
