Tomorrow (October 31) is the release date for Midnight: Century of the Vampires 1-3 from Ami Blackwelder. This is a collection of the first three novellas. Here is the excerpt from Goodreads.


The world is no longer the way we remember. Few are even still alive to recall the days when midnight didn’t mean cowered away & hidden. Out of sight became our only way to survive since the…Century Vampires. If you want to live, trust no one.


It is 2125. Vampires have taken over the world. Most humans live between 6 am and 6 pm. Those that don’t are eaten. Mark and Aura are two people that are trying to survive but also kill as many vampires that they can. They have been together for a couple years and have become a good team. But there is something about Aura. She can sense the vampires, knows different tricks to keep them safe, and although she is petite, she packs one heck of a kick.

There are also a couple humans in the Underground that are working to defeat the vampires. Aura discovered them and visits them regularly. She tends to get sick and they provide the medicine she needs. They also have a vampire repellant that Aura and Mark use every night to keep the vampires from breaching the doors and windows of their home.

One night while Mark and Aura are out, they come across a vampire that has been hunting Aura for several years. Although they escape, they keep running into him. At one point several vampires attack them and Aura is taken. Now it is up to Mark to save her.

I really liked this book. It is actually a collection of the first three novellas in the series. I loved the concept. Here are these two people that are trying to survive and kill the vampires any way that they can.

I will admit that there are a couple things that kind of bothered me. Mark is rather whiney. When Aura is kidnapped he started acting like an emo brat. I do like a guy in the story really loving a woman and willing to fight for her. But I’m more into the strong guys, not the ones that become obsessed stalker types.

Having said that, I really did enjoy the stories. I will be getting the next books as soon as they come out. This is a story that I think most paranormal romance readers will like.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
