Tall, Dark & Fangsome Review

Sarah Dearly was adjusting to life as a vampire but ever since she was cursed as a nightwalker, life hasn’t been easy for her. As long as she wears her gold chain around her neck, the nightwalker inside her stays in control. But the minute the necklace is taken off, her eyes turn black and everyone becomes an all you can drink buffet. Since she has consumed the blood of two master vampires, Sarah is extremely strong and not even her vampire boyfriend Thierry can stop her when she becomes out of control.

Gideon Chase is a vampire hunter until he was stricken with hellfire. The hellfire is consuming him and he can’t live like this anymore. He’s found the answer to his problems in Sarah. He wants her to turn him into a vampire so he can escape the hellfire and be healed of his scars. But in the mean time, he has forbidden Sarah to be with Thierry anymore and this leads her to have to sneak around to see him. Gideon has spies everywhere and he is not one to be disobeyed. He holds something very valuable that can finally free Sarah of her nightwalker curse but if she doesn’t obey him, he will not give it to her.

As Sarah spends time with Gideon, she starts to develop feelings for him. She’s convinced it’s
her crazy nightwalker that likes him and not her, but things are becoming increasingly dangerous now. Gideon is not who he seems and can not be trusted. Will Sarah fall for the wrong man and lose her life in the process? What will happen between Thierry and Sarah?

Tall, Dark & Fangsome is the fifth and final book in the Immortality Bites Series starring Sarah Dearly, a reluctant vampire who seems to always attract trouble. The story moves along at a fast pace with a healthy dose of humor, romance and mystery to keep readers riveted until the exciting conclusion. Michelle Rowen’s books always make me laugh out loud more then any other author and always leave me with a smile on my face.

I absolutely adored Tall, Dark & Fangsome and did not want it to end. The writing is engaging, the characters are wonderful, and it was just so much fun to read this book. I have never read a Michelle Rowen book that I did not adore and rave about and there is a reason for that, she writes damn good books! I am very sad that this series is concluded and definitely see possibilities for it to be continued, which I would be completely overjoyed about if it was. If you haven’t read this series yet, you are in for a real treat. Try to read the books in order if you can, starting with Bitten & Smitten. Overall, Tall, Dark & Fangsome is everything that I hoped it would be and more.

Tall, Dark & Fangsome will be released August 25, 2009.
