Review: Rises the Night


Author: Colleen Gleason
Pages: 300
Star Rating: ✪✪✪✪


The saga of Victoria Gardella continues as the glorious nineteenth-century city of Rome gives rise to a new threat from the immortal undead…

Lady Victoria Gardella Grantworth de Lacy has been a vampire slayer for just over a year, balancing her life as a peer of Society with the dangerous role that takes her out on moonlit streets, stake in hand. She has learned brutal and heartbreaking lessons about the sacrifices that must be made in order to save humanity from the evil that secretly preys upon it, but she has not wavered in her vow to fight on.

Now, in Italy, a powerful vampire is amassing the power to control the souls of the dead. As Victoria races across Europe to stop what could be the most deadly army the Gardellas have ever faced, her unlikely companion is Sebastian Vioget–a man as tempting as he is untrustworthy.

But when Victoria discovers she has been betrayed by one of her most trusted allies, the truth will challenge all her powers as a Venator…and as a woman. 

My Thoughts

I have to say I really do like this series. The main character Victoria made choices you would assume a typical young girl to make who has only been a vampire slayer for just over 1 year. I personally thought she should have listened to people more and stopped getting herself into situations with certain character as much. 

I did enjoy the plot and the story did shock me in places as a twist came out of nowhere, the plot does pick up in this book and I find this series to be quick reads. I can’t wait to carry on with the next book and continue on with this series.
