NIGHT OF THE VAMPIRES was not what I expected... it was
enticingly more! In this book set during the Civil War,
author Heather Graham provides a fresh twist that I had
never read anywhere before. The war was gruesome, it was
horrendous for thousands of Americans all across the
country; throw in a vampire infestation and it becomes
deadly on a whole new level.
Cole Granger, Sheriff of Victory, Texas, was brought into
the war to fight, not for the North or the South, but to
fight a whole new evil. This evil does not choose sides.
This is an evil that preys upon the North and the South,
both the living and the dead. Cole had swept his town of
the vampire infestation and now joined forces with Cody Fox
and Brendan Vincent to clear the capitol of the same deadly
sickness. Suddenly there is a stranger in their midst and
the attacks seem centered wherever she goes. Cole finds
himself doubting whether to trust her, love her, or leave
her for the shadows in the night. When troubles brew in
Harper's Ferry, Cole finds that this stranger may be the
only home he needs to know and he will die to protect her.
Alone in the world, Megan Fox is searching for her family.
A family like no other, for Megan's father is a vampire.
When Megan learns that her half-brother is headed to
Washington, DC to fight the undead, she can do nothing but
join him and his group of friends in their quest. Once
there, Megan finds Cole just may be the biggest obstacle
she has to overcome. Filled with doubts about herself and
her family, Megan goes with Cole to fight and cure those
who have been bitten. Megan begins to think that the master
of the vampires may be passing herself off as one of the
living. In fact, Megan believes that this shadow just may
belong to their group. Will she be able to ferret out the
evil or will more lives be lost in the fight?
The settings of the story, characters, and fight were so
vivid that the story stuck with me from page to page, day
to day until I found that I wasn't able to put it down!
Once again, Heather Graham has hit a home run with this
As a soldier, Cole Granger fights to restore peace to a
world divided by war and evil. His extraordinary talents are
enlisted to prevent the president's horrific premonition
from becoming reality. Nothing—and no one—will stop him from
fulfilling his duty. Especially the mysterious young woman
who claims to be his comrade's sister. Enemy or ally, he
can't yet determine. But one thing he knows for certain is
that he must keep her close. Very close.
Megan Fox's quest to uncover a family secret leads her to
the center of vampire riots in West Virginia. To find the
answers she needs—and clear herself of suspicion—she must
join forces with Cole. They work undercover to bring
justice, but they can't disguise the potent attraction and
need that draw them together. Yet trust doesn't come easily
for Cole…and when Megan unearths the grim, dark truth, can
she trust him to believe her?
