SHADOW KERRY THE MC RESCUES A VAMPIRE IN DISTRESSKerry the MC rescues a vampire in distress far so corny The dude is a teenager meh and pretty much kisses her ass for saving him Wait You mean that a vampire super strength and all that gets rescued by a mere teenage girl What the hell is this crapWell yeah Duh right Super strength should have gotten the dude out of trouble NOT IF IT WAS TWILIGHTAnd you are right again But this is not Twilight Vampires are evil and selfish They only care about their wellbeing They might faking it OhAnd they might threaten to kill you Abduct you Force you to work for them and threated to kill your family if you don t comply OH NOOh yes This is how things go in Companions of the Night And I ove it It makes sense Ethan s the vamp personality matched my image of vampires I absolutely hate the usual sissy vamps in Paranormal books No these are not nice people that happened to grow a fang or two No they don t sparkle nor eat Animals Because They Are Too Kind To because they are too kind to people No they don t stay virgins for 100 years nor want to have a relationship with the Mary Sue next door They are vile cruel disgusting creatures that belong in your nightmares not your sexual fantasiesUnless you re into that sorta thing Which is fine by me Whatever rocks your boat strangerAnyways I have two main things that I disliked about Companions of the NightOne the story was not creepy I was expecting something else and I didn t get it Disappoint Two the romance I think I would have given it four stars if it wasn t for the romance It didn t bother me since it took an incredibly small part of the book say 20 pages or so but I think the story would have been better without itIf you ever have the possibility of reading this book then take it It s a very fast and fun read Should you buy it Maybe if it has a discount yes Else try borrowing from someone One of the few really excellent vampire novels out there The entire plot has so much common sense and believability working for it and the characters are so ikeable.
