Review: Bonfire (Hours of the Night #1.5) by Irene Preston, Liv Rancourt

Silent night, holy hell.

Thaddeus and Sarasija are spending the holidays on the bayou, and while the vampire's idea of Christmas cheer doesn't quite match his assistant's, they're working on a compromise. Before they can get the tree trimmed, they're interrupted by the appearance of the feu follet. The ghostly lights appear in the swamp at random and lead even the locals astray.

When the townsfolk link the phenomenon to the return of their most reclusive neighbor, suspicion falls on Thaddeus. These lights aren't bringing glad tidings, and if Thad and Sara can't find their source, the feu follet might herald a holiday tragedy for the whole town.

This holiday novella can be enjoyed alone or as book 1.5 of the Hours of the Night Series. Bonfire takes place the December after the events in Vespers.

The second book in the Hours of the Night series where Sara and Thad are falling into their love/lust and getting to know each other more. Thad is still coming to terms with his feelings and that his “sin” is in a way justified and something he deserves. Sara wants all of Thad but understands that their traditions are very different and well old.

I was excited for this one because I have fallen in love with this story line. A vampire who fights demons for the Vatican in order to save his soul and redeem him for his sins who also happens to love men! Where do I sign up to watch? However, even if i really liked the buildup in this book and without the run around of feelings from the last one, I thought it was quote anticlimactic. I was actually left with a few more questions than were answered. Like what happen to those locals who were lost? Why was Maddy out on the swamp? Is this the end?

It was interesting and fun to watch Sara get Thad interested in everything Christmas; with the huge tree, presents, and plenty of lights. Thad is starting to see that Sara is so much more than a pretty face who can actually be a full partner in fighting the demons. I am soo hoping that this is not the end as there is not “I love Yous” exchanged or a for sure future between the two. Plus I am not ready to let these two go! Overall, It was an enjoyable read and I hope there is more to come.

I was gifted a copy of this novella from the JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review.
