Lord of the Vampires - Gena Showalter rating: 3.5

My Thoughts: I wanted to like this much more than I did. The premise of Nicolai trying get his memories back and seek revenge seemed good in theory but seemed to fall short. It felt like there were chunks of the story that were taken out in editting to meet a page count.
I also had a problem with how Nicolai seemed more caveman posessive than Alpha posessive. It made him harder to like than the story called for. I liked Jane more than I thought I would at the beginning. She seemed to be trying to hard at first. Later, when she was dealing with Laila and trying to get back to Nicolai she seemed like the strong female we were supposed to be seeing her as.
Overall it fell a little short on story but I will read the rest of the series to see if it picks up. I'm also intrigued by a series written by four different authors.
