I have NEVER enjoyed a vampire series as much as I enjoy this one. I could kiss the author, that's just how much I love The Lamia series. I laugh and I cry......I really can not praise this series enough. I started "The Silent Ones" Saturday morning and was almost late to church cause I couldn't put the book down to get myself and my kids ready, LOL.I finished it once I got home. My favorite character is Pierre, absolutely love him. My thanks to SJ Bach, you are awesome, and I can not wait for the next installment.
