Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost
Halfway to the Grave - Jeaniene Frost

Great intro into a new series for me. People have been suggesting Frost's work to me for awhile, and I'm glad I've finally checked into something by her. Strong female lead. Hunky, strong, romantic interest with an accent. Just two vampires... er.. excuse me, one vampire and one half-vampire... out to change for the world for the better. Loved it!

Braced to Bite (Half-Blood Vampire Novels) - Serena Robar Interesting view on vampires. Really nice book, though I expected more.

The Half-Breed Vampire (Harlequin Nocturne)
The Half-Breed Vampire - Theresa Meyers Originally Reviewed at: Mother/Gamer/WriterRating: 4.5 out of 5 ControllersReview Source: NetGalleyReviewer: HeatherThe Half-Breed Vampire is the third story in this series. I have not had the pleasure to read the previous books, but I can assure you that it reads just fine on its own. This story brings us Slade, a vampire, as he fights to save his clan from a goddess who has talked the local were/shifter clan into starting a war. He teams up with a human woman, Raina, who is the local game warden, a member of the were community, but doesn’t actually believe in any of it. They both set out to investigate the sightings of large wolves as well as the disappearance of a community member. However, Raina soon learns she gets more answers than she bargained for. She is the were packs Whisperer, and the last woman to hold that position was brutally murdered by the wolves. Slade on the other hand gets answers to his life long questions: who his parents were and why he was abandoned at the age of eight. Can these two come together to save not only the vampires, but themselves too? Does Slade’s past come back to bite him, literally? As always it can be difficult when you read a new author, and this is especially true with any paranormal genre. Each writer creates their own rules, beings, and how they come to be. This author chose a different perspective than what I am used to. In this story both were and vampires are based upon an actual virus, and both are passed through blood – typically when bitten. I feel it’s good to know this before hand as in this story there is always the choice, well usually, but I don’t want to give anything away. Overall I enjoyed the story, and I savored upon the love scenes. If you enjoy paranormal, strong romance, and a lot of physical action then this one is for you. There is even a bit of humor here and there, and I found myself chuckling out loud in a few places too. My only complaint is that there were a few typographical errors, but since I was reviewing an advanced version, it’s unlikely that they will be in the final version.

The Half-Breed Vampire - Theresa Meyers This book was good, it wasn’t bad, but it certainly was great either. I’d categorize this book as an ok Vampire genre book with nothing that really makes it stand out from a crowd. It’s just average, I didn’t feel like I knew either Raina or Slade much better by the end of the book as I did in the beginning. Their characters were fairly one dimensional. I didn’t really route for either of them and the characters chemistry didn’t seem to really leap through the pages. I felt more chemistry from the side characters then I did with Slade and Raina. The book definitely had some entertaining moments, it isn’t a boring read, but with so many fantastic vampire books to choose from an author really needs to have something that will make this book stand out from the rest. Her vampires did have some fun vampire abilities such as fluxing (going invisible) and the ability to transport themselves and objects. I think I wouldn’t mind being a vampire to have one of those handy dandy abilities.

I think my biggest issue with this book are the gaping holes in the plot. Truthfully, I haven’t read the first two books in this series and I am not sure I have much desire to go back to read them. Although, this is not the first book in the series I do not believe that the holes in this plot would have been filled by having have read the previous two books, they seem pretty isolated to this particular book. One question I have is how it is everyone in Raina’s tribe but her seems to know about the shifters? Also, when the disappearances started if the tribe was keeping the shifters secret from Raina, why did they let her start investigating in the first place, knowing what would happen with it? Probably my biggest question is how in the world did she know Slade was the missing boy from her tribe and where to find him? She just popped up knowing his real name, when he didn’t even know his real name. There were just holes upon holes and once my mind starts dwelling on one hole it finds others and it becomes almost impossible to fully enjoy the book, unless of course the book was entertaining enough to ignore it.

The Half-Breed Vampire - Theresa Meyers 4 stars!

Popcorn fun, with fast-pacing and dark and dangerous hero. The plot didn't offer many surprises and wouldn't stand up to much analysis, so I'm not going to over-think this one. It kept me engaged in the story, and I liked all of the characters. Bracken, the werewolf alpha had as much depth as a wet paper towel, but that didn't even diminish my enjoyment.
