Of The Book Shethe book She do some interesting things with tensions between human mobsters vampire "Bootleggers And Werewolves And There "and werewolves and there a somewhat intricate mystery plot going as well So I did keep reading For all 488 pagesUnfortunately her characters were mostly pasteboard and I never did take to the main characters r the secondary characters for that matter r care as I was supposed to for what happened to them I actually fell asleep during the Big Sex Scene True it was a Friday night and I was tired but I never remember that happening before Then the intricate plot that largely kept me reading fell apart becoming a fuddled welter at the end Like I said I was sorry I d spent the time In the first Roaring Twenties novel Allegra Allie Chase is a newly made vampire and wants nothing than to have fun After two years Pontius Pilate of freedom her patron Cato dies the vampire who converted her and now Raoul the powerful masterf the vampire clan wants her for himselfWerewolf Griffin Durant despises his wolf nature He fought in the Great War and Livin de Life only wants to live in peace but he can t let gof the past He shuns the wolf clan in the city and wants his younger wolf sister Gemma to marry into the human elite Aeralis of New York society so she ll be safe Gemma however rebels at every turn A chance encounter leads Griffin to Allie Though he disapprovesf her flapper lifestyle he s also fascinated with her Most wolves and vampires hate each Be CentsAble: How to Cut Your Household Budget in Half other but neither Griffin nor Allie are so close minded After a fewf their mutual human friends go missing they work together to find them and fall deep into a conspiracy that spans all three species in the city wolf vampire and humanI understood Griffin s and Allie s motivations but I couldn t connect with either Academic Inbreeding and Mobility in Higher Education: Global Perspectives of them Griffin is definitely a beta hero He hates violence and was veryld fashioned Allie was flamboyant and wild but her attitude was Radio Crackling, Radio Gone often selfish and disrespectful Despite the sexual tension between the Hh there wasnly The Legend of Joaquin Murrieta: California's Gold Rush Bandit one sex scene and very little romance Muchf the plot was about finding the missing humans Mal and Margot and not Limey Gumshoe on the Hh falling in loveWhile I enjoyed the secondary charactersf Gemma Wyatt Mal Margot and Ross there were so many Maritime Academy Graduate: Memoir Of A Third Mate other side characters that it was hard to keep trackf who belongs to which group and where their loyalties lie Some f the plot twists were confusing as was the history f the vampire and wolf races but most Trouble Looking for a Place to Happen of my uestions were answered at the end There s a HFN ending As a vampire Allie will live for hundreds maybe thousandsf years but Griffin will die in maybe a hundred years I m hoping there will be world building in the later books so I m looking forward to reading the next story in the trilogy 3 Stars Although it took a little bit to get me the story was entertaining and moved along at a nice pace I may not revisit the series Dressed for Thrills: 100 Years of Halloween Costumes and Masquerade or I mightCertainly a popcorn book SynopsisAllegra Chase was turned into a vampire by her father s close friend It was hernly chance to live to the full and have some fun As a teenager she fell ill something sounding like a progressive muscular dystrophy and abandoned by her posh friends boyfriend and even her mother she was left to wait for her death in an empty house with.
