Eighteen-year-old Corinth Taylor didn’t sign up to become a Watcher—an elite warrior destined to restore balance to the human race—he was chosen.

Corinth can barely control his own hormones… much less the deadly blade. And to make matters worse, his best friend, Larna, just so happens to be the very thing he’s supposed to eliminate.

But when vampires and slayer find a common enemy, Corinth knows it’s his innate calling to hunt evil down. And evil has a name: Gabriel Stanton. The enigmatic vampire who escaped their capture, has plans for Corinth, Larna, and Alastair… and it’s a threat they’ll never see coming.

When the line between good and evil gets crossed, devastating consequences start to happen. As Watcher and vampire worlds collide, Corinth must decide where to place his trust: with his old allies or his killer instincts. An upstart slayer. A clan of vampires.

What could go wrong?

It’s only the end of the world.

Check out my review of The Outcasts (The Blood Dagger #1)

Misty Hayes did T H A T.

Not to be overdramatic but I am shocked, appalled, and dying to know what happens next for Larna, Corinth, and the gang (especially Vinson, my actual new book husband. I want that man to–not–murder me). I loved volume one so much but volume two, this thick bad boy, was a roller coaster ride out of this world.

Larna is amazing, such a truly strong, admirable heroine. The true example of what makes a ‘strong female character’ in a not-so-cookie cutter form. I loved seeing how much she has grown in this book.

Corinth and Alastair were also great. Corinth is my favorite of the two and I was glad he got his own POV chapters this time around. There were so many interesting situations and revelations about his character. I sense more to come.

..And Gabriel. I still love him. I just have a thing for his type.

Read. this. series.

Opal Whilstead knows she has a reputation: a reputation as a bright, giving, upright woman—smiling and laughing her way through hopeless spinsterhood. It’s been so long since she’s had serious feelings for a man, but now she finds herself taken with the Commander Exemplar of Diachona’s army.
And she regrets it.
Not only is the Exemplar a widower still longing for his wife, but he’s the father of the reigning king. Even if a man of such prestige could find love again, he’d be unlikely to search for it among the kingdom’s old maids. Besides, Opal dreads being found, due to a grievous secret she carries…

Mystical relics.
Powerful vampires.
Strange allies.

It’s hell being a teenager.

Larna Collins has never understood why her dad skipped out on her and her mother when she was twelve years old. Until then, he was a devoted and loving father.

But six years later, during a renovation of her childhood home, she unearths her father’s journal from under a dusty floorboard. According to his final entry before he left, he had recently visited a small parish in England.

The entries draw her to this seemingly quaint village, which Larna discovers isn’t as charming as its blood-craving inhabitants want her to believe, and she learns that she isn’t the only one trying to track her father down.

Could this explain her father’s disappearance? Or was placing her in the center of danger her dad’s master plan all along?

The Best Vampire Book Ever™
The Best Female Main Character in a Vampire Book Ever™

A vampire book with a bigger girl as a protagonist and is also seen as a desirable love interest? This is it. Right here.

I don’t have the right words to express how much I enjoyed The Outcasts. It was everything I’ve ever wanted to read for a long, long time. I loved the plot, the characters, and the villain (oh, yes, I love him). I can’t wait to read volume two to see what happens next.
