Book twelve in Maggie Shayne’s bestselling Wings in the Night series
Vengeance will be hers…
Briar is driven by only one thing: her need for vengeance on Gregor, the rogue vampire who turned her, then betrayed and brutalized her. To make that happen, she joins Reaper, himself a renegade vampire, and his gang of misfits, who are also on Gregor’s trail.
A loner by nature, she tells herself she’s only with them until she can destroy Gregor, and then she’ll be gone. But she hadn’t counted on the way the gang feels like family, the way they need her to complete their circle. And she definitely hasn’t counted on the way Reaper, the charismatic vamp who holds them all together, needs her—much less the way she has come to need him.

This series is really starting to lose steam on me. The lack of appearances from the original group of vampires that I've grew to love - except in cases of emergencies where they swoop in like super heroes - has really hurt these for me. The new batch just isn't as much fun at the old one.
Reaper and his gang are on the hunt for Gregor for a multitude of reasons. In fact, as the story goes on, more and more reasons pop up. Soon it seems like each of the good vamps has their own personal vendetta against the guy. He's bad - like really really bad - but it was a little much.
Crisa was a little over the top and the story really seemed to revolve around her instead of Briar, who is our main female in the romance. Perhaps this one took a little more of an Urban Fantasy feel to it. I love a good urban fantasy, but I went into this knowing I wanted to read a romance. The romance just didn't seem to take center stage like I would have expected it to.
There was a lot of action, but much of it was over the top and seemed to be thrown in there just to be there sometimes. I'm really hoping that future books get back to the feel the series had in earlier titles.
