A Shade of Novak by Bella Forrest book review


The Shade of Vampire story continues in with our usual cast and Sofia and Derek. Now it’s a decade later and their twins are full grown and making mischief along the way.

This book is a transgression from our normal leads. As usual this book is written in multiple point of views but Rose,one of the twins, is mostly who we see things from. As with the first Shade of Vampire book this one has a bit of the Stockholm syndrome thrown into play but you feel it is only a hearing up for a more elaborate story as books come.

I liked that these books didn’t just let go of our normal leads as most do when trying to add the “new generation” of characters into the story. You feel like they are still heavy hitters in the story.

After so many previous books in the series this one is a little slower not as much happening but it is still a good read. Like I said you feel it’s just ground work for the next books in the series.

I hope Sofia and Derek are still part of the next reads as much as they were in this one. As a reader you never want to let go of your favorite characters.

With all this I will confess it wasn’t as thrilling as the story of Sofia and Derek but I can tell it just leading up to more! Forrest will not disappoint I am sure! I am sure to be rewarded by reading on to the next installment.

My Rating: 3Stars

Over view form Goodreads
I never could have imagined that Derek and I would willingly turn back into vampires.

But there are some things in life that you just can’t predict. Like the strange human disappearances that had started happening on the coasts surrounding us.

There would have been nothing mysterious about these kidnappings so close to our own turf, had The Shade’s vampires not given up drinking human blood almost two decades ago…
