Review: Bloodstorm (Heart of a Vampire Book 1) By Amber Kallyn

When duty forces a shaman to stop a vampire from her revenge, love doesn’t just burn... it bites.

For two hundred years, Niki DeVeraux has been tracking the monster who murdered her family and made her a vampire. She finally catches up to him in a small Arizona town, only to face more than she bargained for. Amid an imperious vampire King, a shaky truce between the local clan and shifter pack, and a too-sexy sheriff who makes her remember she’s still a woman, Niki’s single-minded purpose is threatened for the first time since her turning.

Between his duties as Keeper of the peace for the Magic Council and heir to his tribe’s shamanistic magic, Sheriff Shane Spencer’s job is to protect humanity and stop the friction between the local Arcaine races before it turns into an all out blood war. To make matters worse, there’s an irresistible rouge vampire in town enflaming his senses.

When wolves start turning up dead, the tension between the paranormal races grows and suspicion falls on Niki. Shane knows she’s not to blame, and it has nothing to do with the primal urges she stirs within him. Working together, they must find a way to stop the hostilities from going over the edge. Trouble is, the desires raging between Niki and Shane might prove more dangerous than the surrounding threats.

What an awesome story. This book has all of the angst of fated lovers believing they shouldn’t and can’t be together and overcoming it all. Niki has been suffering for 200 years and is so scared to hope that she might actually have a life after her vengeance is obtained. Then she hears Shane say something stupid that he regrets as soon as he says and takes off.

This story is nonstop action and has it all, a mage, vampire, werewolves, witches and a shaman. What more can you ask for? I was on the edge of my seat. I can’t wait to read book 2 and see who is the focus of that story.
