[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Sophia

D.B Reynolds lives with her husband of many years in a flammable canyon near Los Angeles.  When she’s not writing her own books, she can usually be found reading someone else’s.

D.B is the proud creator of the VAMPIRES IN AMERICA series.  VAMPIRES IN AMERICA currently consists of 5 books – “Raphael”, “Jabril”, “Rajmund”, “Sophia”, “Duncan”, Vignettes Vol. 1, a collection of short stories from the VAMPIRES IN AMERICA world and the newest release BETRAYED, a Cyn & Rafael novella, which was just released only a few days ago.  The 6th book in the series, LUCAS, will be released October 2012.

Sophia, Book #4 of the VAMPIRES IN AMERICA series
Author:  D.B Reynolds


The Pacific Northwest . . . home to lush forests and constant rain, to lumberjacks and computer geeks, especially those of the vampire kind.

Sophia, beautiful and deadly, has spent the last hundred years dancing her way through the balmy nights and hot-blooded men of South America. But when her Sire sends an urgent summons, Sophia rushes home to Vancouver only to find he has disappeared, leaving nothing behind but three dead vampires and a letter with Sophia’s name on it.

Colin Murphy, a former Navy SEAL, came to the Northwest seeking a quiet place to heal the scars earned in more than a decade at war. But when someone starts killing local vampires and torturing their mates, Colin takes on the mantle of a warrior once again as he sets out to find the killers and do whatever it takes to stop them, even if that means hunting with vampires.

Following her Sire’s trail of death to a small town in northern Washington, Sophia unexpectedly discovers the heat of a South American night in Colin’s arms. But all too soon Sophia and Colin find themselves in a race to uncover the killers before the next dead vampire is Sophia herself.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

If you follow my reviews you know that I adore this series and have had nothing but great things to say about it.  This book had me a little worried though. It has a female lead, and I've been so enamored of D.B's super alpha male vamp leads up until now that I really wasn't sure what this book was going to be like.  Even after starting it, I still wasn't entirely sure, but things quickly turned around and once again, it captivated me to the point of distraction.

This may be sort of a weird review. The book is technically Sophia and Colin's, but I honestly didn't care about them like I should have. What I loved about the book was the action and the continuation of Raphael and Cyn's story.  Sorry Sophia, you're an O.K gal and all, and Colin, I really like you, but Cyn and Raphael stole the show in this one.

Most of the story was centered around Cyn and Raphael and uncovers even more layers to not only each of them as individuals but especially them as our alpha couple of the series.  It also broadens the stories of some of our other supporting characters in preparation for future installments and I absolutely loved it.  The new relationships forged in this book were beautifully written and believable, and the mystery and intrigue were stellar as always.  I'd love to tell you more, but I'm not a spoilery reviewer, so you're just going to have to read it for yourself.

LITERAL ADDICTION gives Sophia 5 Skulls.  I LOVE this series!
