Marked By The Vampire, Cynthia Eden
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

I’ve read several of Cynthia’s books now, so I know I enjoy her classic, succinct writing style. All story, no waffling! This one is paranormal ( its that vampire bit in the title that gives it away – yes?) and was a fun read.
To begin with we’re given a clue that some people aren’t exactly what they seem, and that there is clearly some uncover/underhanded work going on. That fits in with much of Cynthia’s novels that I’ve enjoyed, they have that suspense element and she does that really well, keeping me guessing exactly whats happeneing. So it was with this one, til it got to the point where I was wondering just what and who was going to be revealed next…dealing and double dealing, people who were working for others and not the side I expected, all wrapped up with some danger, violence, and sexy, sensual sex….A great mix.
I liked Shane right from the start, and it was clear that he was in Purgatory for reasons other than what were given, but I didn’t know who else was in on that, and what he was actually there for. Olivia seemed a troubled person, seeking to find out what made killers act as they did, but she didn’t fit the usual “do-gooders” mould, and wasn’t afraid of danger – til she reached Purgatory where the danger wasn’t just the usual from interviewing dangerous prisoners, but had the added addition of someone – or maybe several someones – flipping and messing with the safety measures. Why, who, when and where was the next danger coming from. It’s a novel full of suspense and danger and some vivid surprises, but with a perfect ending. Its the second in a series, I’ve not read the first but that was fine, as it seems each is a standalone, but with connected characters so it’s the sort I like, where novels are complete but integrated with each other and carrying an overall story arc. I look forward to more.
Stars: Four – a fun read.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
