When Twilight Burns
Victoria Gardella, vampire hunter, returns to her home in London. The homecoming she gets though is not one she was looking forward to. Instead Victoria has to deal with a vampire who is doing its killing during the day! For Victoria killing vampires is her specialty. This vampire is different. Victoria can’t locate this vampire, even using her sharp senses. As bodies start piling up, they all have one thing in common… the clues point to Victoria as the killer. As if Victoria doesn’t have enough problems to deal with; she also needs to make a choice between Max Pesaro, a vampire slayer or Sebastian Vioget, a vampire.
Both Max and Sebastian are very handsome, dashing gentlemen. I could relate to why Victoria had such a hard decision to make. If I could pick both I would. When Twilight Burns is the fourth book in The Gardella Vampire Chronicles. I would recommend reading all the books in the series in order from one to four. The story just continues in When Twilight Burns, so if you haven’t read the rest of the books you can get a little lost at the beginning. Ms. Gleason writes that she likes writing historical novels based on actual events because you get to play around some with the events. The story in When Twilight Burns was based around George IV’s coronation in 1821, which I thought Ms. Gleason did a great job incorporating this event into the book. I can’t wait to read As Shadows Fade, the next book in The Gardella Vampire Chronicles series.
