In October I like to ready spooky books. One that I enjoyed years ago was Kiss of Night by Debbie Viguie, Christian fiction featuring a vampire. (I know it sounds weird, but it really worked!) I liked it so much I bought the other books in the series, Kiss of Death and Kiss of Revenge. Unfortunately, those two are still gathering dust on my shelf. Have you read either of these books or the whole series? What did you think? And would you recommend that move them up to the top of the pile?
In the wake of a failed attempt to defeat the vampire Richelieu, Susan and her friends are weakened and divided. Raphael must set aside his animosity and join with his enigmatic sire Gabriel to discover a powerful weapon before Richelieu claims it. Meanwhile, Susan and her cousin Wendy translate a 12th century diary belonging to their ancestor, Carissa, to learn the origin of their family’s connection with the vampires. As Carissa’s story of love and betrayal unfolds, they discover the secrets of the present will only be revealed by solving the mysteries of the past.
Susan and her friends must prepare for their most important battle with the vampire Richelieu, but they find themselves divided. Wendy has been kidnapped by a centuries-old enemy of her ancestor, Carissa. While they search frantically to save her, a greater danger threatens as Richelieu’s army of vampires and humans fills the crevices of Europe. Susan learns the rest of the ill-fated romance between Carissa and the formidable vampire Gabriel of centuries ago and soon realizes that history is repeating. But it is the secret of the cross that might save them all if she can discover it in time.
