Colin Murphy lives peacefully in the small town but now several attacks have been done to vampires and their mates. Colin will join the vampires to find out who is murdering them but he will be distracted as Sophia will be part of the group.
The fourth book of D B Reynolds Vampires in America series is Sophia. So when I started this book and met the character Sophia I wasn’t really liking her especially as she tried using her wiles on Raphael with Cyn by his side. As Raphael and Cyn are my favorite I don’t like anyone who threatens to break them up, but I figured as she is the main person in the book I would warm up to her character and did. Sophia in her own right is a strong character as she has a lot of depth to her but its hidden and secret from those around her. I loved that she had a past with the tough Colin Murphy. Colin is an ex Navy Seals and is hard as nails especially as he closed up his heart ten years ago when the woman he loved died. Lust was driving the two characters which made the book spicier with those two heating up the pages once they got over the shock of seeing each other again. Of course lust wasn’t the only driving force as love swept in or that it never left them.
Sophia to me was bloodier than Reynolds other books. I guess as the plot dealt with death it was to be expected, but Reynolds does a very good job at the description along with the bad guys. The group of men who were doing the killing were lethal and deceitful. She does especially good job at describing the tragedy that hits close to Raphael. It does not end fatal but certainly a close call which had my fingers tightening at the sides of the pages. Now Luicen’s character left me annoyed. He was a weak character to begin with and I was not unhappy with what happened at the end.
The fifth book to the series is going to be Duncan’s story which I can’t wait to read as he has been by Raphael’s side for more than two hundred years. It will be interesting to read where Reynolds will take Duncan’s story.
