Vampires don’t get happily ever afters.
Jack Valentine finally has her shit together. She has a great job, great friends (well, one at least) and a girlfriend whom she loves, even if she can’t work up the courage to tell her that yet. Unfortunately, she also has an archnemesis who’s about to punish her crimes in the worst possible way: by making her spend time with him.
Which she could cope with, maybe, if she didn’t have problems at work as well. When the body of a human judge is found in a locked library, there’s no denying that she was murdered by one of the Silver – by a vampire – and the evidence points worryingly close to home. If that wasn’t bad enough, some of Jack’s least favourite people are opening a new blood bar in Oxford with questionable motives. For Jack and her team, it’s becoming increasingly hard to separate allies from enemies.
With conspiracies on every side, the simmering tensions in Silver society are about to come to a head. As usual, Jack intends to be right in the middle of it. She does like it when things get messy.
*Non Spoiler Review*
The second instalment in the Seeker series and boy did it pack a punch! Jaffrey brings some more twists and turns in this sequel.
Again we enter the world of Jack (Jacqueline) Valentine, a Seeker (detective) of the vampire community. You find her trying to manage a semi normal life, yet, she has to face consequences for her previous actions. Not only that her current relationship with Tabby is on a knife edge due to her undercover job with Killian Drake turned into something unexpected.
Jafrrey’s mixture of murder mystery and personal challenges makes Judgement Day a great follow up. Again fantastic storyline, well rounded supporting characters and some sexual tension which I am all for!
Overall this Urban Fantasy gave me everything I wanted! Jaffrey has even written it so you could read it out of order, which I always think is an asset.
