Falling apart - Jane Lovering

Jessica Grant liaises with Otherworlders for York Council so she knows that falling in love with a vampire takes a leap of faith. But her lover Sil, the City Vampire in charge of Otherworld York, he wouldn t run out on her, would he? He wouldn t let his demon get the better of him. Or would he?

Sil knows there s a reason for his bad haircut, worse clothes and the trail of bleeding humans in his wake. If only he could remember exactly what he did before someone finds him and shoots him on sight.

With her loyalties already questioned for defending zombies, the Otherworlders no one cares about, Jess must choose which side she s on, either help her lover or turn him in. Human or Other? Whatever she decides, there s a high price to pay and someone to lose. 

My thoughts:
Truth be told, I could not remember much from book 1. My memory is always bad, so in a way, yes it could work as a stand alone ;)

We are thrown right in. Something has happened to Sil. But what? Is he evil now? Should he be hunted down? Most of the book is about Jessica trying to find out what is going on. And we also learn some interesting facts about..ahem things. 

This is the world were everything was normal and then otherworlders showed up. You can understand the tension. Even if it has been quite some time since that.

We did not see much of Sil, a shame really. But we did see Zan instead, the leaders of the vampires and I must say, I quite fancy him more ;)

Jessica, oh I do not know. I think it was the constant Sil business, she could have thought about other things too. Even though she did but still, a bit lovesick.

Conclusion:
Anyway we have, vampire demons, zombies, werewolves, angry humans, two lovers torn apart in good old York.

This is a new series for me too, but I think it sounds pretty interesting ;)

Unknown said...

I haven't read this series either, but it looks pretty good!

Unknown said...

It sounds like it is a bit of everything thrown together. I agree about the cover!

Elysium said...

When I saw the cover, I thought the book was about fairies or elves... This was new author for me.

BiblioSanctum said...

My memory is horrible too, but chances are if I don't remember much from book one it means nothing really special stood out! This sounds like your usual paranormal fare, but it does look quite interesting!

Zombies? yay! I like books with zombies in it. :) the cover is indeed a bit too much.

I like the sound of this one! I'm glad it can be read as a stand alone.

Good 'ol paranormal creatures, what a classic combo although I have yet to really indulge in zombie stories

Carole Rae said...

Vampires, demons, and zombies....OH MY! hahahaha. But yes...this sounds fun.

Anachronist said...

I am alive - barely so- but vamps, zombies and demons seem a tad too much tbh.

Blodeuedd said...

ALIVE!!! And yes not for you, you'd tear it apart

Blodeuedd said...

:)

Teddyree said...

that's a whole lot of otherworlders ... not heard of this series.

Blodeuedd said...

There sure are

Aurian said...

Not a fan of zombies, but the rest sounds good. And I must have missed your review of the first book as this is new to me.

Tabitha (Pabkins) said...

That's great this could work as a stanalone. Like you sometimes I forget so much about the previous books I've read.

Blodeuedd said...

It's not really about zombies, they are just there for a few pages and they are nice

Blodeuedd said...

I just read so many :/
