Vivian thinks she can control every aspect of a deadly game with her usual manipulations… but what if she can’t?

Seven vampires and seven werewolves pay to hunt a supernatural criminal across the cold, vast grounds of an Alaskan resort. The one to catch her, and live through the encounter, will increase their power by feasting on hers.

The tiny vampire they track is more than she appears, however. To escape a fate of twelve years in silver chains, she'll do anything to survive the weeklong excursion. This time, the darkness holds more than just the stinging bite of the Arctic—it holds death.

Journey along, in this next installment of The V V Inn series, for a wild ride as the tale is told through the eyes of all the new seethe members.

My Thoughts

The last book left on a cliffhanger so I was interested in reading the next in the series. This book picks up right where book one ended.

Vivian has some how pulled together a hunt for a group of vampires and a group of werewolves. They are going to hunt down a convicted vampire criminal. First one who can catch her gets to kill her. Things don't go off as planned. From the first day things start going wrong. People are ending up dead, not killed by the convict. So now there are two killers on the loose with only Vivian and her people to try to hunt them down.

In this book the author used different people to narrate the book. I didn't really care for it. There was so much going on that you kind of got everyone's perspective. However, there was no real character development. Most of Vivian's seethe is unknown because they're all new, which is fine but you don't really get any more development with those characters.

There is a lot going on in this book. There are a lot of things that happened in this book that I never saw coming. All in all, I would say that this book is definitely solid. I would say that you would most likely enjoy reading it if you were just looking for a quick, fun read. It's not something that you would remember forever though.


  1. Gret review Amber...I have this one on my NOOK to read. Hope to start it soon

  2. Thanks for taking the time to review the second book, Amber. I know the multiple POVs either rub people wrong, or they enjoy it -- sorry you were the former. I appreciate you gamely getting through to the end. I hope you'll give the series another try. The third book is told the same way, so if you're not up for it, I'll completely understand.

    Thanks again, Amber!
