[Review] - The Renfield Syndrome
Author: J.A. Saare
Series: Rhiannon's Law
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: August 23, 2011
I received this book for review from the author.
Summary: Vampires, and werewolves, and demons, oh my.
Rhiannon thought facing off against a deranged child vampire was the most dangerous task she would ever have to undertake, but she’s about to discover making a deal with a demon is far, far worse. Sent forward into another reality, one in which vampires are now dominating nearly extinct humans, she realizes the sooner she returns to her vampire lover, Disco, the better.
Unfortunately, time changes a lot of things; including those most trusted around her. When she’s faced with a loss and betrayal unlike any she has ever known, her focus shifts from severing the debt between the demon that wants to kill her, to exacting a revenge that will bring forth consequences she never could have fathomed. By reaching out to the darkness lingering within her, she’ll find the strength to push forward despite the circumstances that would see her dead and buried.
After all, when it’s all said and done, all that she has left to lose is her soul.
Thoughts: If you have read the first book you know that Rhiannon has been sent to the future, October 28, 2112. That's exactly where we find our girl at the beginning of book two. But the hits keep coming. Not only has she learned what year it is but also that the human race is dying out from something called the Renfield Syndrome. She decides the first thing she must do is find Disco. But you know what they say about the best laid plans...
An amazing, intense read. Rhiannon is put through the ringer in this one. While she is brilliantly mouthy, it's her actions that make her who she is. The Renefield Syndrome is a whole new ballgame- and one that includes half-demons and werewolves. I loved it. Dark, sexy and a great adrenaline rush. The twists and turns of this story will have you on the edge of your seat. Yes, Ms. Saare it was definitely worth the wait!
Score: 5 Stars
