Synopsis borrowed from Goodreads:

In search of Kayla and on the run, Kiera and her friends make a race against time across the Cumbria Mountains. With the vampires predicting their every move, the trust amongst Kiera and her friends starts to fade.

From the desolate monastery set high between the mountains, the mysterious lake and the caves beneath the fountain, Kiera must discover the connection between the vampires and her mother, Isidor and Kayla, and resolve her inner feelings for Potter and Luke.

Kiera herself has started to change and this frightens her. So turning to her friends for help, she realises that it is only her mother who can provide the truth. But Kiera has other questions that she needs to have answered. Why did Isidor murder an innocent girl? Who is the person that Murphy has been meeting in secret? But above all, why have they put their lives and trust in the hands of a serial killer?

A Greta & Darkfallen review:

Darkfallen: OH...



*drops mic and walks off stage*

Greta: Really? That's it? That's all you're gonna say? Well I can do better than that!
Holy Batburgers with Extra Cheese, Batman!!

That's the way he's going to end it? Are you kidding me? With a cliffy of so and so doing something something? Fo shizzle? Now, that's just plain evil!!

Darkfallen: Oh and that's soooooo much better? Ok so maybe I'll leave you with a little more than that, but I assure when you read the last page of this book that is exactly how you'll feel.

Kiera and the gang are on the run now after the event at Hallowed Manner. Trying to find Kayla while the world is being taking over my vampyrus that all want to kill you is no easy feat. Picking up where Vampire Wake left off Tim takes you on a journey only for you to end up in a place you never thought existed. The whole time Kiera is starting to change. Her vampyrus side growing stronger by the day, and the thought of growing wings completely freaks her out. Luckily for her she isn't given much time to think about those things. Unfortunately that's because all of her time is spent in one near death experience after another!

I mean seriously this girl just can't catch a break! Note to self if you ever meet a girl named Kiera RUN as fast as you can in the other direction if you want to live! lol

Greta: In this one, Kiera is now learning what it means to be a half-breed. I'm very curious what will happen in the next book since she's matured a bit in this one.

Although.... COME ON HOBBIT!! Are you kidding me? I do not want a love triangle!! And Potter creeps me out!!! LOLZ! That's right boys and girls!! THere is more love triangle magic in this one. YOu know how she kissed a Potter and liked it in Vampire Wake? Wait till you hear what she does in this one. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Let's just say that my eyes,.... they burned!!!

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm all for a live triangle with a TAY TAY and a RobBurger but uggs... I don't like Potter's mouth and I totally don't find him hot or suck facable ;)

Darkfallen: You wouldn't know suck facable if it smacked you on the ass and called you Greta. Long live Team Potter!!!!!

Now lets talk relationships shall we? Remember in New Moon when Jake made his move and suddenly there was a bunch of teeny boppers, and a few moms NO I was NOT one of them. walking around wearing shirts that said "Team Jacob!" or "Team Edward!" on them? And then when Fallen by Lauren Kate came and everyone was "Team Daniel" or "Team Cam"? Do you remember those days? Well let me tell you that I ALWAYS root for the home team. For me the answer was always Edward for Bella, and Daniel for Luce, and in every story where there has been a love triangle my love for the original guy always won out.

Until now...That's right folks. Forget Luke I'm in the stands chanting Potter Potter Potter! Something has happened to me. Or maybe it's not me. Maybe Tim O'Rourhe is some sort of pseudo-psych genius with words. Because I didn't even know it was happening. I hated Potter. I despised him. For somewhere over 600 pages, and almost two whole books, I was madly and irrevocably in love with Luke Bishop. Then in those last few chapters of book two something happened. I was in love with Potter before I even realized what was happening to me. It was to late. There was no going back by the time I woke for the spell that Tim put on me. So much so that I found myself here in Vampire Hunt reading about Kiera in the arms of Luke and all the while thinking Damn it Potter kiss her. KISS HER! Oh and when he did...*swoon* So I stand before you to say I'm officially rooting for the away team on this one. Go Team Potter!
Greta: An-y-ways....moving on shall we? I must admit that I really did miss KAYLA in this one. I rather enjoyed her in VAMPIRE WAKE and I think that's what really MADE that book for me. But Isidor was a good replacement for her. I really enjoyed hearing his back-story and there's actually a secret present that I got to discover in this book. Read it and tell me if you can find it ;) LOLZ! It is most awesome and made me go super sonic squee!

The histories of a certain race was described (if I tell you it will be a spoiler) and I must admit that it is the most imaginative back story that I have ever heard. I loved it! Well done, Hobbit!

And this place that they go to at the very end is out of this world!! Very very clever!!
Darkfallen: Now on to something else that doesn't usually happen to me and therefore I feel the need to share with you. The ending of this book. The evil cliffy will make you gasp out loud, knots form in your stomach, only to turn the page and read "The End." I am the queen of the evil cliffy. I am the girl that will write you a story and then then last words will be something like "She stopped, toes curled over the edge of the building, thinking this is it. She can hear them calling her name in the back round. Their shoes slapping against the tar roof as they run to stop her. Turning over her shoulder she catches his eye. She jumped....THE END and now your left waiting for book two to find out if the chic died or not. Yes I am that evil! Well Tim I come before you, to bow beneath you. I here by declare you my King of the evil cliffy's. The reader in me hates you for making me wait to know what happens next. The writer in me has never been more happy.

This again is another great addition to the series, and you would be a fool to not take this thrill inducing, action packed, at time terrifying ride! And remember these vampires don't sparkle...

Greta: All in all... A most fantastic story! So run along and pick up your own copy. And at 99 cents each this is a series you can't afford NOT to buy;)

Greta gives it...
