ï When Twilight Burns ð Download by ✓ Colleen Gleason Twilight Burned out by all the vampire romances out there I can pretty much guarantee that this series will draw you right back into the vampire world, and keep you reading until you finish them all This is the fourth in the series, and this series hasn t let me down yet Victoria is a member of the ton, otherwise known as the high society of 1822 England She is also known in vampire circles as the Summa Gardella due to being the last of the Gardella s bloodline It s a bloodline that means it s her duty to be the leader of the Venators, a group whose mission is to kill vampires When this series started, she was a debutante, and just learning about her heritage It s all very hush, hush, and she can not even tell her mother She wears a talisman that makes her stronger then most humans, but still has to train often. So by day, she s being called upon by members of the ton, evenings are mostly spent at balls, dinners, and other frivolities But it s night that finds Victoria roaming the streets of whatever city she happens to be in, sometimes by carriage, sometimes on foot, hunting evil vampires in their quest for blood Don t get me wrong, she also manages to killthan her share of vampires at some of the events she attends, and it makes for quite the story and adventure. There are two men in Victoria s life Max is a venator one of the few not of the bloodline but one that won the title after many trials He is enigmatic and fiercely loyal to the venators Recently, he lost his venator powers and is not taking it well Sebastian is the great many greats grandson of one of the strongest vampires, Beauregard He is charming, good looking, and Victoria has spent a few pretty sensual moments with him in the past Even so, Max has been my favorite throughout the series up to this point. So much has happened to this trio thoughout all of these books I really don t want to tell specifics, but things are always changing in Victoria s life Her mother and her two friends are still trying to calm Victoria down so that she can find another husband from the members of the ton She, of course, knows she can never again marry someone that doesn t know her secrets, but she also is aware that she must have a child to carry on the bloodline Her mother s two friends are also the cause of much needed levity during parts of the story. This installment fulfilled one of my wishes for Victoria, and that just added to my enjoyment of this read Lilith the vampire queen is back, and causing all sorts of havoc in the characters life as is her usual This book is a bit darker then the others, although the last one had it s fair share of darkness as well There s plenty of tromping around in the bowels of London, lots of staking of vampires, and of course it has it s moments of gore to the extreme This one features the coronation of King George IV, and the author had fun with involving Victoria, and her cohorts in that event. I could ramble on and on, but I won t Suffice it to say, if you love vampire books, love a good urban fantasy, with a side of romance and don t care what the time period is, I feel certain you will love this read, as I do RabidReads. com After Narrowly Escaping From Rome, Lady Victoria Gardella Returns To London, Where Not Even Sunrise Can Stop A Vampire S CarnageRuining Victoria S Homecoming, A Vampire Stalks The Streets Of London During The Daylight Not Only Is Victoria Unable To Detect The Vampire With Her Heightened Senses, But She S Being Framed As The Prime Suspect Behind The Killings Meanwhile, Her Heart Is Still Divided Between The Enigmatic Sebastian Vioget And Her Fellow Slayer Max Pesaro The Battle Is Made Even Difficult By The Legacy Of A Vampire S Touch A Vampire Who Left In Victoria S Veins Boiling Blood That Forces Her Fight Evil On Two Fronts Against The New Breed Of Undead Threatening Londonand Against The Darkness Within Herself Is it wrong that when I read this series I wish it would turn into an episode of BIG LOVE I can t decide who I prefer for Victoria I love them both Fu un bacio famelico che la sorprese per la sua intensit Un momento prima erano saliti sulla vettura scambiandosi cortesie, e adesso era un viluppo di labbra e lingue, mentre le mani sembravano essere ovunque Ardente e umida la bocca di lui copr la sua, e lei tenne il viso fermo in modo che egli potesse esplorarla e assaporarla Dita calde le strinsero la base della mascella, e Victoria sollev il mento per trarre un rapido respiro, prima di immergersi di nuovo nel bacio, cercando di tener lontano ricordi sfumati di rosso, la strana sensazione di labbra fredde e calde contro la pelle Il crepuscolo dei vampiri, quarto capitolo della serie L eredit dei Gardella, ambientato dell estate del 1841 e ha come vicenda principale il complotto di Lilith, regina indiscussa dei vampiri, e l incoronazione di re Giorgio IV che, poverino, si trova a dover scappare da una moglie trasformata in vampiro. Victoria sempre pi combattuta su chi amare Max, il cacciatore d adozione con un carattere burbero o Sebastian, un cacciatore nato dal ceppo dei Gardella, un uomo con un sex appeal invidiabile e capace di far cadere ogni donna ai suoi piedi Fu un bacio rabbioso, feroce un disperato scontro di bocche, labbra contro labbra, lingua contro lingua, e ancora, ancora finch lei non rimase completamente senza fiato, ma riluttante a fermarsi per respirare. C da dire, inoltre, che questo un romanzo carico di aspettative Innanzitutto spero che nel capitolo finale della serie finalmente sceglier tra i due, soprattutto perch qui vediamo un Max super presente, un uomo che non ha pi paura di esprimere i propri sentimenti e di combattere per ci che vuole Illa Gardella, invece, deve combattere contro il suo stesso sangue, nel vero senso della parola Grazie alle due vires bullae, nonch gli amuleti di forza dei cacciatori, non stata trasformata da Bereguard ma, appena sente l odore del sangue, un velo rosso le appanna la vista e i sensi Solo un combattimento con la sua nemica le far vincere la battaglia. Ho sempre amato la serie Buffy l amazzavampiri per il carattere forte e cazzuto della protagonista, e ancor pi per la sua cocciutaggine E Victoria Gardella, Illa Gardella cos passionale, cazzuta all inverosimile, indipendente e una gran spaccamaroni La storia narrate ne Il crepuscolo dei vampiri ricca di personaggi nuovi e vecchi, di avvenimenti, un susseguirsi di colpi di scena, coinvolgente all inverosimile, un fantasy paranormal romance di cui non si pu fare a meno Maljka per RFS SIGH GASP. SIGHCRYSQUEEEEELLSIGHCRY. BITES HANDSREMEMBERS TO EAT. SIGH AGAIN. CRY AGAIN DOES A HAPPY DANCE. Thats pretty much the rollercoaster of emotions i experienced whilst reading this book I m only saddened now by the fact i only have one book left in the series to read Fantastic prequel to the final installment. I ve been following Gleason s Gardella Chronicles from its inception A mix of sub genre s is it historical romance PNR Fantasy who can say, either way I love the hook of a Venator, that s vampire slayer to you and me , from Jane Austen s world. Like many of you following this series as well, the love triangle between Victoria head Vamp Slayer and Illa Gardella in Gleason s world and her two men, Max and Sebastian, keeps me coming back as well Continuing where Book 3 The Bleeding Dusk left off, Victoria awakens with those she cares about most hovering over her Concern over the fact she drank the Vampire Beauregard s blood at the end of the last novel, has left them on pins and needles as to whether Victoria will turn Vamp It has kept them by her bedside since she slew Beauregard and saved the day once again But because of the presence of not one, but TWO vis bulla piercings that give added power to Venators in Gleason world she was able to hold off the turning that would have happened to anyone else if they had not been she at least for now. Immediately upon her return to London, Victoria is reluctantly thrust back into the world of the ton with her oblivious mother scheming once again to get her married off But Illa Gardella is not the only one to return to London The dreaded Lilith Queen of the Vamps is back too and she has a plan A plan that Victoria, Max and Sebastian must uncover and thwart before all of London falls prey to Lilith and her evil horde. I loved, LOVED, the way this book came together The beginning started off kind of slow for me, but by the time Victoria and thereby us understood why she must remain within London s elite society, I was with her all the way It was very cool how the author played with history in WTB and I liked that aspect of the plot immensely Love alternate history story lines and this one has an edge of it I also liked the internal tug of war for Victoria s soul that played out throughout the novel and it s eventual resolution Because, like the character Wayren, I happen to believe that selfish actions are the seed of all evil as well There were several threads coming together in WTB from the previous novels and I liked how Gleason tied them up especially the love triangle aspect Of course the door is always open, and everything in that regard is probably not tied up, but I hope PRAY she keeps on with where I think she s going Questo quarto romanzo della serie di Victoria stato decisamente meglio del terzo Tutta un altra cosa E come sempre pieno di azione, e so di ripetermi ma le scene di caccia e uccisione di vampiri sono le migliori che ho mai letto, la Gleason davvero bravissima in questo. E non tutto c una scena bellissima che mi ha fatto battere il cuore e che sinceramente aspettavo dal primo romanzo Sono gasatissima, legger al pi presto l ultimo volume di questa serie per sapere cosa succede E Sebastian mi ha deluso parecchio, ma in qualche modo me lo aspettavo.
4 StarsReview This is such a great series And this book was especially exciting for a certain reason that I can t talk about because spoilers I feel like these books are almost a guilty pleasure at this point I mean, they re good in all the conventional ways a book should be good characters, plot, etc , but they also fulfill some sort of juicy, angsty, soap opera y romance need I didn t even know I had. For one thing, I love Victoria s love life She always has all these different guys interested in her, and so she flirts, dates, kisses, has sex, etc. , and I swear reading about it is this feeling like she s my best friend and I just can t wait to hear all the juicy new details. Victoria is also sarcastic and snarky, but I swear she has the classiest snark ever It cracks me up, and I just love this girl But all the characters are so good at making biting remarks at each other, and I feel like I should just keep a cooler full of ice with me to hand out to them for all the burns they re continually getting I m constantly oooh ing and cringing and feeling bad for them but also secretly loving it. Then there s all those conventional things I mentioned, like the three dimensional characters who have all been through and done terrible things that no one should ever have to experience or do And the amazing, tension filled, historical esque writing And the Victorian London setting, which, to a girl who lives in present day America, is like being transported to a whole nother world. And to top it all off, I LOVE the emotion laced throughout these books, especially the oftentimes heart tugging romance This time there was even a love triangle, which only made me happier since it was a good one SPOILER view spoiler And Sebastian, who I pretty much haven t liked since the beginning I mean, he s great as a character, but as a person he made a terrible first impression on me even managed to gain major points with me, making the triangle even better for me because I started to almost kind of get torn between the two guys Almost I still knew who I really wanted hide spoiler I just love this series, even though I don t usually enjoy a urban fantasy, b historical urban fantasy, or c heroines with special powers But view spoiler How dare you throw over Sebastian, Victoria HOW DARE YOU For fucking Max UGGGHHHHH Typical heroine, going for the strong, silent, asshole, completely unaffectionate type hide spoiler
