"highly original twist on the vampire genre"
I am getting a little weary of vampire tales of late, but
there seems to be no stopping the genre. One of the best to
emerge from this over-crowded category is Robin T. Popp.
Popp pulls a cross-genre twist on this, making her Night
Slayer series unique. Her first novel Too Close to the Sun
(June 2003), a highly innovative Sci-Fi Romance for
Dorchester, made me an instant fan. However, in the switch
in publishers and genre, I had to wait for the edge of the
seat, brilliant Out of the Night (September 2005), the
first book in her Night Slayer series. I am delighted there
wasn't the long wait for the second one. Seduced by the
Night, shows Popp is a talent to stay.
Bethany Stavinoski is a top biochemist. It causes her to be
sucked into the dangerous world of rogue vampires and half-
vampire changelings. The Bad Vamps want her to replicate a
formula so they can dominate the world, only there is a
Night Slayer bent on stopping them. Dirk Adams is a
changeling, a Night Slayer, a human with all the powers of
a vampire, but not all the bad side effects. He is a slayer
who a hunts down the rogue vamps. Currently, he is assigned
to protect Bethany. As he tries to shield her, Bethany find
Dirk drawing her closer. As they are relentlessly pursued,
she faces giving herself to Dirk's dark power in order to
save their lives.
The pace is breathless, Dirk and Bethany's desire for each
other sensual. Popp weaves threads of her former Sci-Fi
genre into this vamp series to give a stronger base in
reality. It sets the Night Slayers apart from all the other
vampires books, showing Popp is a talent to watch.
