ARC When Darkness Hungers by J.K. Beck

Jun 25, 2012

Book 5
Shadow Keepers Series

FBI agent Alexis Martin knows that vampires exist—because one of them killed her sister. Assigned to investigate a series of bizarre homicides in Los Angeles, Alexis believes the murders are the work of rogue vampires—perhaps even the monster responsible for her sister’s death. Now she finally has a chance for retribution. Even better, Alexis receives unexpected help from a sexy stranger as hungry for rogue blood as she is.

Serge is a centuries-old bad boy who stays off the grid—keeping his secrets, his hunger, and his heart safe from exposure. A new breed of vampire that feeds off other shadowers, Serge finds sweet torture in Alexis’s arms. Loving her is a chance to be free from the hiding, the loneliness, the secrecy. But the truth about what he is, and what he’s done, may banish him to the dark confines of his own private hell—and destroy the beginnings of their love.

I gave this book a 3
      When Darkness Hungers by J.K. Beck reunites enemies of old. Beck brings us Serge's story in this new story of the Shadow Keepers. I enjoyed the first three books in the series, but unfortunately When Darkness Hungers felt bland to me. The first two chapters captured me, but then the story seemed to drag on, and become predictable. Serge, for all his power, felt lifeless compared to Lucius and Vincent from previous books in the series. Alexis' character was wonderful, but I felt as if she was reckless when she confronted vampires, especially when she didn't posses powers. I do want to read book 6, When Temptation Burns, it will be Doyle's story and his character is one that we have been following since the beginning, it is due out, July 31.
