  • Vampire Shift (Kiera Hudson Series) Book One on Jan. 13, 2012

    Vampire shift is the first book in the Kiera Hudson series by Tim O’Rourke. I was pleasantly surprised with the book and cannot wait to start Vampire Wake (#2 in the series). The book follows Kiera Hudson, a new police graduate, as she starts her first assignment at a post. She is sent to the secluded town The Ragged Cove. She accepts the assignment originally because she was drawn by the thrill of real action because of a serial killer that has plagued the area. She quickly realizes what a dangerous situation she has really put herself into. She is a great detective/constable and really knows her stuff however what she learns as she uses her “gift” and digs deeper changes her life forever. She doesn’t back down and really holds her own. I loved the way it was written; you really get a feel of being in the moment and there with her. I loved the different twist on vampires; it’s not just the typical blood sucking horror creatures or the romantic mind manipulators. There were many surprises while reading. Just when I thought I had followed clues and figured out things there would be a twist that blindsided me. I am anxious to start the next book and see where things go for Kiera. I would defiantly recommend the book. I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

  • Vampire Wake (Kiera Hudson Series) Book Two on Jan. 17, 2012
    (no rating)
    Vampire Wake is the second book in the Kiera Hudson series by Tim O’Rourke. I wasn’t sure if it was possible for the second book to be as good as the first. I was wrong. In the second book Kiera thinks she is getting a break away from her worries and problems only to find out she is put in the middle of an even worse situation than before. Kiera finds out more about the Vampyrus and in turn more about herself and her gifts. I loved this book. It was suspenseful from beginning to end. I often had to force myself to put it down and get other things done. I cannot wait to start reading Vampire Hunt. I would defiantly recommend the book. I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
  • Vampire Hunt (Kiera Hudson Sereis) Book Three on Jan. 18, 2012
    (no rating)
    Vampire Hunt is the third book in the Kiera Hudson series by Tim O’Rourke. Obviously I loved this book. I read it a day. Kiera, along with Murphy, Potter, Luke, and Isidor, continue their search for Kayla. The book is suspense filled and had me reading non-stop. Kiera continues to learn more about herself and her changes. I was glad that things with her and Potter were finally addressed. I actually cried while reading this book. I have gotten so connected with the characters and the way the books are written you are right in the middle of things. There are even more twist in the story line that catch you off guard. I cannot wait to read Vampire Breed! Defiantly recommend this book and the series. I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars!
  • Dead Flesh (The Kiera Hudson Series Two) Book One on May 09, 2012
    (no rating)
    Dead Flesh is book one in the Kiera Hudson Series Two. The story picks up right where the last series left off. Kiera and the “gang” return to a world that is not quit the way they remember it. They soon find that there are more changes than they thought. Kiera finds herself faced with a problem she just can’t decline that may have bigger consequences than she planned. If you are a Kiera Hudson fan just know that Tim and the characters do not disappointed. This is the perfect start to a new series. As always it was hard to put down and I found myself hanging on every page. Tim O’Rourke is a master with words and suspense. I am anxiously waiting the next installment and can’t wait to see how some things play out. There are new characters and a surprise return of a past character. I don’t want to give too much away so I will stop now. I loved this book and was sad to reach the end. I highly recommend it and give it 5 out of 5 stars. Thank you again Tim for such an amazing book.
