Chaos and Moonlight by A.D. Marrow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
After reading the synopsis I thought this book would be more drama than romance, but the blend is just perfect. You get some good setup for future installments without having the book bogged down in backstory.
This book begins with a glimpse inside a breed of vampires desperate to save their race. What once was viewed as an invulnerable species is not on the brink of extinction because of the way humans have evolved. Their only hope at living "normal" lives anymore (with families and children) is to engage the leading scientists who are making breakthroughs that might apply to their unique genetic issues. Lucky for them, on the eve of another horrible funeral, Dr. Sarah Bridgeman makes a memorable appearance on a TV show, telling off the news anchor while describing her research. Taris, the eldest of the surviving vampires, is determined to get her on their side and working on their "cure."
Still stinging from her suspension based on the horrible impression she made on national TV, Sarah didn't think her life could get worse until she finds herself kidnapped by a vampire, running from another, and leaping from tall buildings with no safety net. The plucky doctor makes a good match for the serious Taris. Even his friends, the remaining "nine" who are tasked with policing their own kind, find a good symmetry between the couple and try their best to give them space to discover their feelings. There's action, adventure, betrayal, discover, and (of course) some sizzling sexy scenes thrown in to make this a truly entertaining paranormal romance read. Since this is only the start of the series, we got a good dose of introduction to the rest of the nine and I cannot wait to see who gets a book next.
