I loved Larissa Ione’s Demonica series. I had to grab this novella so I could venture back into that world even if it was just for a small bit of time. As much as I enjoyed that series I still cannot believe that I have not moved on to the Lords of Deliverance books. I even own the first few.
Many readers will be pleased to know that if you are not familiar with the above mentioned worlds you can still read this novella and not be confused about what has gone on at Underworld General. Fans of those series will be pleased to know that the Seminus demons they’ve loved in the previous books have small roles here in Vampire Fight Club.
Working as a nurse at Underworld General has forced Vladena to see many injuries and deaths. One she never expected to see was her brother Vaughn. His injuries and subsequently his death are what push her to do a little investigating of her own. All it takes is a little snooping and she knows exactly where she needs to go to find out what happened to her brother, Thirst.
Nathan is in Thirst for his own revenge. Over the course of his long vampire life he has discovered keep your friends close and your enemies closer is the best way to exact that revenge. Sadly for Nate time has allowed his desire for that hate to fade. Now he just runs the club that the individual he hates the most in this world owns. Enter Lena. He knows she’s hiding something. He knows she has walked into his club as more than a medic looking for a job. He still over looks it all because she has awoken something in him that he has believed dies a long time ago.
One of my many problems with novellas is the insta-love and must mate and must mate now that makes the shortness and sex work. I didn’t experience that here. Yes this read is short, but it is still uber hot without the rush. On top of that both Lena and Nate get the justice/revenge that brought them both to where they met.
