ALMOST HUMAN – The Third Trilogy
Novella #1 UNITING VAMPIRES (Vampiress Reigning – Part 1)
Fulfilling her destiny as the divinely appointed queen of the vampires is turning out to be a lot more work than Alyson had in mind…
She’s finally gotten her blood lust under control (mostly), talked her vampiress friend Sindy into behaving herself (mostly) and has managed to loosen up her husband just enough to let her have some fun, but being the all-powerful leader of the vampires is a position of politics with little room for playtime. Of course, Allie was never one to follow all the rules.
Visiting her human friends Ben and Felicity makes a nice excuse to shirk her responsibilities now and then, and if she doesn’t pull her mentor Cain out of his sulking, heartbroken shell, who will? The perks of being queen are pretty cool, but a free spirited vampiress with powers beyond belief and an itch for fun has little patience for unraveling court intrigue in the interest of uniting vampires…
ALMOST HUMAN – The Third Series
This paranormal fantasy follows a beloved ensemble cast of vampires and humans as they navigate intricacies of love, friendship, shifting shape, shifting allegiances and using paranormal powers of persuasion to unite vampires for the good of mankind…if they can manage to survive.
*This series continues the story of all of the characters from ALMOST HUMAN – The First & Second Series, but can be read independently on its own (although it does contain spoilers of the first series for those who haven’t read them.)*
I love this series, I loved the first 2 “books” in the series and I was excited to see where this story goes. Unlike the Second book (or series), where apart from a few spoilers if you wanted to go back and read the earlier books, I don’t personally feel that this works as a jumping off point despite what the synopsis says. As a continuation as the series though, it is a great read. I love how the characters are expanding and how things are setting up for what I feel will be very interesting conflicts down the line.
As the first of a series of Novella’s this has the expected “non end” that I expected and just makes me even more anxious to get my hands on the next installment. For those that haven’t read any of Melanie Nowak’s books before I personally suggest going back to the beginning and starting from there. Those that are already fans will love where the story is heading!
A 4 1/2 rounded up to 5 stars from
