[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Jabril

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.

Jabril, Book #2 of the VAMPIRES IN AMERICA series
Author:  D.B Reynolds

Houston, Texas-Cowboy boots, baseball and journeys to the stars . . . right? Wrong. Because Houston is also home to Jabril Karim, one of the eight powerful Vampire Lords who control all of North America. And as Private Investigator Cynthia Leighton will soon discover, not all Vampire Lords are created equal. For Jabril is the face of evil in the new world, a vampire who values no life but his own, who enslaves those he desires, steals whatever he covets and destroys anyone who stands in his way. Running from L.A. and its seductive Vampire Lord, Raphael, Cyn sees the Houston job as a welcome refuge, a place to get away and heal her broken heart. But Texas will be no vacation. For in Jabril Karim, Cyn will confront a true enemy, one who will go to any lengths to satisfy his lusts, enrich his coffers and expand his power. Fighting for the lives of two young sisters, Cyn's journey will take her through the streets of Houston and back to L.A., where the human police are determined to bring Raphael down for the murder of one of their own. But the danger doesn't end there. For Jabril has set his sights on Cyn, and he will stop at nothing to have her.

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

The 2nd installment of D.B Reynolds's VAMPIRES IN AMERICA series did not disappoint.  

Picking up where Raphael left off with Cyn sorting through her feelings regarding Raphael, DB introduces an insidious villain who readers will absolutely love to hate and a mystery that will keep you turning pages like wildfire!

In keeping with the first book, the action is uber intense, the dialogue witty and engaging, the characters lovable (or despised depending on the spectrum, the romance intense and steamy and the emotions real.  The world building continues to amaze and while I was sad to see the book end, I was thrilled with the way it ended and couldn't wait to start reading the next book.  

VAMPIRES IN AMERICA has easily become one of my very favorite vampire series out there and I simply cannot get to the next book fast enough.

LITERAL ADDICTION gives Jabril 4 1/2 Skulls and continues to recommend this series to everyone!
