Review @Kallysten - Homeward by Kallysten (Ward of the Vampire #5)

Ward of the Vampire #5
by Kallysten

Goodreads blurb:  When Angelina decides to put some distance between Morgan and herself, she is certain it is the right thing to do. It isn’t fear of his vampire fangs that motivates her, nor the fact that she’s been maneuvered into his life by Morgan’s meddling family, but rather the realization that he needs time to be ready for a relationship.

Her certainty that this is the correct course of action doesn’t last long.

Between nosy friends, regular text messages, impromptu lunches at the mansion and an invitation to have tea with Miss Delilah and the blood-chilling Irene, her resolve is quickly tested. And when she’s offered a private flight to the nearest thing to paradise on Earth to save Morgan from himself, she can’t say no anymore.

This trip, however, turns out much different from what she expected…

About the Author:  Kallysten is a writer of romance novels and short stories, most of them with paranormal elements.

Her first eBooks were published by Linden Bay Romance in 2005. The defunct Venus Press subsequently published a few of her short stories. Because so many of her stories are linked as series and part of the same universe, she decided it would make sense to have them all in the same place, which is why she self-published, first with the co-op Alinar Publishing and now on her own. When she sees calls for submissions that speak to her muse, she sometimes tries for them, and was published this way by Samhain and Torquere.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 unicorns - I really liked it!!!

The cover is beautiful with the red orchids, but it does not have anything that screams paranormal or that I should grab this book.  Of course it would be a mistake to judge this book by its cover because it is the perfect conclusion to this serial series.

When I started this series in February of 2013, it was before I knew what a serial series was.  Kallysten was kind enough to share it with me, and I have bought most of the series, but for whatever reason, I never knew the conclusion was out.  I stumbled onto it and bought it back in November.  This is a complete serial series meaning you can buy the whole thing no waiting for the next part.  This of course is for adults only because it does have quite a few steamy scenes.

I probably should have gone back and read the whole thing at once since it has been more than a year since I read book 4, but I didn’t :)  Kally easily sucked me back into the lives of Angelina and Morgan.  There is not action in this serial, but there is lots of drama and tension and threats of violence.  She does a fabulous job making this story come alive where you can feel the characters pain, fear, and torment.  This was the perfect ending to the serial though I had my doubts it was going to happen while reading.

I recommend this to fans of vampire romance who don’t mind when it comes in the form of a serial :)

Interested in reading??
