Russell’s main goal was revenge. Since turning into a vampire he had wanted to kill Master Han who had held him prisoner for thirty nine years. Russell will be getting unwanted help from a weretiger, Jia.
Jia was a princess weretiger whose quest was to get revenge. She needed to kill Master Han who had butchered her family. She will find the chance with the vampire, Russell, who will not be happy with her tagging along.
Crouching Tiger Forbidden Vampire is the sixteenth and final book of the series Love at Stake by Kerrelyn Sparks. Over the years I have enjoyed the series and think overall this was a great vampire series. The sixteenth book was a great finish to the series.
The character of Russell I wasn’t sure about. You knew a little about him but it was only little pieces and within this last book you get to know his character a lot more. I found him to be very honorable and a good man though lonely. He finds some fire when he is with Jia whom I loved. Jia was a great weretiger. She was a little naive in life but fierce with her conviction of justice for her family. These two were destined to not be together but Sparks will make sure that another vampire and wereanimal will find happiness together.
The surprise of Master Han threw me. I did not figure out the mystery of Master Han until the secret was revealed. I liked that Sparks had Russell keep to his path of revenge even though there was a twist that made him rethink everything.
Sparks has the ending wrapping up everything for all of the characters which will have you smile and know that all your favorite characters are having their happy ending.
