Acquainted With the Night

Book 1

When I first received Acquainted with the Night, the sheer size of the book intimidated me. It took me over a week to work up my courage enough to attempt to begin reading. It didn't take me long to get hooked and I finished the thick paperback in just a few days time. I found the entire plot line to be fascinating. I love how the author uses scientific terms to describe the existence of vampires. Her spin on these overdone creatures is refreshing. I especially love how Caro gets up getting hot for sex after being bit.

The sex scenes were pretty arousing and the action was abundant and entertaining. I enjoyed following the relationship of Caro and Jude as they struggled to stay alive and solve the clues Caro's dead uncle left for her. Piper Maitland did a wonderful job of tying up a lot of the loose ends but I was very disappointed when the story ended. I would have liked to see more about what sort of future Caro and Jude end up having.
