He had everything under control until she crashed into his afterlife...

Fledgling vampire Jonathan Kerr has just met his match.

Not even his past life as a former Marine and FBI agent could prepare him for the battle against the monster inside him, struggling to take hold. After an old nemesis of the Senary surfaces in Brooklyn, unleashing chaos and terror in the battered borough, Jon sets out to take him down. Instead, he ends up with far more than he bargained for when he clashes with the beautiful half-vampire hybrid, Lawan Knight.

After escaping near death and suffering unspeakable horror at the hands of vampires, Lawan trusts no one, regardless of species. In between bouts of drunken stupor, her only goal is to exterminate all those who've wronged her, including every member of Jon's vampire bloodline. But Jon's soulful eyes and quick smile crawls under her skin, transforming her black and white world into a hazy shade of gray.

As the days rapidly grow darker, Jon and Lawan turn to one another, but their inner demons threaten to tear them apart. The only way either of them will survive is if they overcome their greatest fear-- Love.

MY REVIEW

In BLACK BULLET, L.D. Rose's writing is as strong as ever. There wasn't as much world building in this one because the heavy lifting was already accomplished in Book 1. I strongly suggest that you read Releasing the Demons before tackling this story.

My review of RELEASING THE DEMONS

Jon Kerr was once a former marine and FBI agent until a bullet to the heart took him out. Thanks to a vamp bite he suffered before his death and his hybrid besties, he's given a new life - as a leech (vamp). What no one counted on was his sire insisting on sharing his head space, threatening to take over his consciousness. Not to mention his sire's twin, Regin Ramsden, is back in town, giving new meaning to the words depraved and deadly.

Lawan is a hybrid. Separated from her brothers as a young teen, she's forged a life for herself out of her own pain and destruction. She has more than a few bones to pick with the Ramsdens after they tortured her to near death and has a rigid hatred for ALL leeches. Until she encounters the one vamp with warm obsidian eyes and a kind soul - Jon Kerr.

There's plenty of action, angst and bloodshed. This author doesn't seem to cut any corners when it comes to giving a story all she's got. She gives us the entire guts, glory and mayhem that make up this series and it leads us on an extraordinary journey. She captured the feelings of these characters so eloquently and each touch had a profound effect on how I interpreted each scene. She allowed her characters to be naked in body, mind, heart and soul and I couldn't help but be equally captivated and enamored by both their brokenness and fluidity. I have no clue which characters I'll meet next, but this author now has a new dedicated fan and if it's anything like what I've read so far, it will be a must-have experience.
