Gabrielle’s writing is focused on actions and dialogs, making it a fast paced read with “OMG” moments.
After the “OMG” moment, when our hero and heroine meet, they get into a weird relationship. What does he want from her? What is she supposed to do? And then, a twist by the middle of the book…
Gabrielle was hiding the gold!Vajilise could’ve shown up earlier. His appearence was a surprise. I was reading and by the way things were going, I thought it would focus on their feelings for each other and about their decision (I can’t tell you more or it would be a spoiler) and suddenly…the sire?! Where did he come from? What does he want? He’s got that “Lestat” presence, a mixture between mentor and “maker”, emanates fear.
I missed more character description and setting characteristics. It’s imperative for the reader to connect with the story. Afterall you’ll feel like Vampire Dreams is a steamy surprise you wouldn’t wanna miss!
SEXUAL CONTENT: 4/5
