I kind of feel bad because it’s been so long since I’ve written a book review. I’m already a slow reader and an even slower one in the midst of school. But I haven’t really had an excuse because I’ve been on my spring break for the past week. Lately, I’ve been reading what other bloggers have shared more than I have done actual reading, so I thought it’d be appropriate to write a review of my latest reread before I lose all rights as a book blogger.
In this installment of the Shadow Falls: After Dark series, Della begins to learn more about her new powers as a reborn vampire. She’s much stronger, swifter, and even more badass than the last book. Della continues to unravel the mysteries in her family history, including learning about her murdered aunt and estranged vampire uncle. In the process, a ghost continues to bother her (yes, apparently, these reborn vampires are limited necromancers as well) with visions and clues to an underground vampire unit, where young fresh-turns are used as slaves. And even worse, she’s assigned to work this case with Chase, a vampire she’s bonded with that shares these ghost visions. Della’s attracted to him but the perpetual lies and secrets makes her dislike him. Like in Reborn, there’s more issues with family, mysteries, and love interests (yup, plural, but don’t worry, the love triangle doesn’t dominate the plot).
