Black Bullet – Review

Black Bullet by L.D. Rose

 Black Bullet (The Order of the Senary)

By L.D. Rose

Release Date: November 9, 2017

Fledgling vampire Jonathan Kerr has just met his match.

Not even his past life as a former Marine and FBI agent could prepare him for the battle against the monster inside him, struggling to take hold. After an old nemesis of the Senary surfaces in Brooklyn, unleashing chaos and terror in the battered borough, Jon sets out to take him down. Instead, he ends up with far more than he bargained for when he clashes with the beautiful half-vampire hybrid, Lawan Knight.

After escaping near death and suffering unspeakable horror at the hands of vampires, Lawan trusts no one, regardless of species. In between bouts of drunken stupor, her only goal is to exterminate all those who’ve wronged her, including every member of Jon’s vampire bloodline. But Jon’s soulful eyes and quick smile crawls under her skin, transforming her black and white world into a hazy shade of gray.

As the days rapidly grow darker, Jon and Lawan turn to one another, but their inner demons threaten to tear them apart. The only way either of them will survive is if they overcome their greatest fear–

Love.

Black Bullet by L. D. Rose tells the love story of Jon, who we met in Releasing the Demons, and Lawan, a part vampire hybrid.  Their story begins shortly after the first novel with Lawan and Jon trying to destroy all vampires and find their leader, Regin.  Lawan is an aggressive Alpha Female while hunting and almost kills Jon, not believing they are on the same side.  Yes, they are both attracted to each other, but the relationship is slow moving.  Which, I believe, is not the norm for paranormal romances.  Many paranormal stories that I have read offer a quick, instant love connection and this slower romance was refreshing.

The story line was chock full of drama and action, although it took me a little longer to get drawn into the story than the first.  The main characters were complex, but I often had a difficult time remembering who the supporting characters were.  

Black Bullet was written to be a standalone novel, although I would have been lost without the knowledge of the first book, Releasing the Demons.  Therefore, I do recommend you read them in order for the best experience.
