Review: The Vampire Voss
It took me a little while to get into this book. My favorite supernatural books tend to be dark. And this one isn't. Voss isn't a tortured hero. He's a golden boy, who has to learn humility. And while he is charming, it was hard for me to get very emotionally invested in him. That was even more the case as he continued boffing other women as he allegedly pined for Angelica. About halfway through the book, I found myself growing more interested in the story. By that point, Gleason was weaving threads through several characters and storylines, which will no doubt set-up the next two books in the Regency Draculia series.
As for the sex. Well, there isn't much to speak of. Don't get me wrong, Voss is humping all over the place. But most of what happens on-page is a lot of virginal pining as well as some kissing and a little wandering hands. The book is nearly over when our couple seals the deal. And while that scene isn't exactly chaste, it didn't make me blush either.
In all, it was a good, light read, that got better the further I got into it. I liked the world building and most of the characters. And I find myself looking forward to Dimitri's book. 4 stars.
