The Nightlife: Paris ARC Review!

The Nightlife: Paris (The Nightlife, #3)The Nightlife: Paris (The Nightlife #3)

Vampire master Michelle, and her slave, Aaron Pilan, flee to Paris, leaving behind the slaughter in Las Vegas. Aaron made the costly mistake of taking a bloodslave, and then married her. The tragedy of his wife's death has driven a rift between them and Michelle is desperate to heal the breach.

Struggling with his predatory alter ego, Aaron is fractious, rebelling against his master. He desires another bloodslave, and that Michelle cannot allow. She opens her heart and soul to Aaron and he relives, through her memories, her dark, gritty tale of survival in the savagery of WWII Paris under the German occupation. Michelle's staggering revelations are deeply disturbing. The confrontation of master versus slave comes full circle as the couple faces death and separation.

And they are not alone in Paris. An investigator has followed them from Vegas seeking the unique gifts of Michelle’s blood. He’s watching and waiting for the opportunity to make his move against them.

 My Review

The Nightlife: Paris (The Nightlife, #3)The Nightlife: Paris by Travis Luedke
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! It is obvious to me that Luedke has become more comfortable with his characters and the idea of revealing them to us in depth and detail. I never thought of Michelle or Aaron as two dimensional, but in The Nightlife Paris they step out of the pages as flesh and blood, so real that you can almost smell them. However, smelling them may not be such a good thing as this story is as gritty, bloody and fascinating as the rest of the series, but better!

I will not offer a synopsis of this installment as I feel like the reader needs to experience this one without knowing what is coming. I will say that a large portion of this story is Michelle's history, which we know from book 1 is dark and cruel. However, the depth of her suffering and lengths to which she had to go to survive was almost shocking in its stark depiction.

This segment of Michelle and Aaron's tale is dark and graphic, but with mesmerizing descriptions and a morbidly compelling storyline, I felt this was the best of The Nightlife Series by far.

I was provided an advance copy of this book without charge for an honest review. My opinions are my own and have not been influenced by any payment, agreement or other compensation.
