Jack McShane is a vampire and his life is a nightmare. As a soldier during the Civil War, Jack laid dying on the battlefield when William Thorne turned him into a vampire. William was not only Jack’s sire, but his mentor and his friend. But now William is dead, killed by the woman Jack loves. When Connie took William’s life, she was turned into a vampire slayer. So now Jack has to not only contend with the motley group of vampires that want to challenge him for the chief enforcer role he inherited from William, but the love of his life wants to rip his head from his body.  Oh, let’s add a little more drama to the mix . . . Connie has yet to discover that she is pregnant with Jack’s child. Yes, this story has many twists and turns and leaves you wondering if there will be a happily ever after. I love how Jack sums up his life at the beginning of this novel, “So as you can see, reality bites. Even worse than I do. Welcome to the new normal. Welcome to my nightmare.”

The Vampire’s Revenge is the fifth book in the Savannah Vampire series. I do believe it would be beneficial to readers to read the series in order. I felt like I was missing some of the background information gathered from the previous books. I really enjoyed the references to areas in and around Savannah, including Fort Pulaski and Tybee Island.

This was my first ever urban fantasy book and I have to say that I did enjoy it. While I prefer more romance in my reading, I found myself glued to the pages and wondering what would happen next to Jack. It was like watching an action/adventure movie. Also, this novel is told from Jack’s point of view. I found this to be very refreshing. Following the current trend of some romance novels, this book leaves you wanting more by ending with somewhat of a cliff hanger. I found myself reading the last sentence and saying “but what is going to happen?”  Needless to say I will be looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

While I would love to go into more depth about the plot of the novel, I feel that I would be giving away some of the surprises in the book. So following the pattern of this book, I’ll leave you wanting more.

    I enjoyed your review and encourage you to read the other books in the series. The author really has a way of engaging you in the city and the people. I’m really looking forward to this one because each book gets better and better.

    Great review, Buffie! I remember meeting Raven at Moonlight and Magnolias and getting a couple of her books. I haven’t read them yet, but you’ve made me want to, so I can follow up with The Vampire’s Revenge. I love vampires and Savannah is one of my favorite Southern cities!
