The Rift Walker (Vampire Empire, #2)The Rift Walker by Clay Griffith

My rating: 3 of 5 stars (Good, I liked the story but it isn’t one I’d list on a top 10 list for the year.)

Book Two of the Vampire Empire Series.  Review of book 1, The Greyfriar.

Princess Adele is the heir to the throne of Equatoria.  She was captured by vampire forces in Europe and rescued with the help of the Greyfriar.  Only she knows the secret of his identity.  Now she is back in Equatoria and her unique knowledge of vampire society is being ignored by the men plotting the war against the vampires.  She is told to focus on her impending political marriage to Senator Clark.  But they don’t know that she has powers that can be used against vampires.

I listened to this book on audio also because it is narrated by James Marsters.  I kept leaving this one for one periods and then coming back.  It has periods that are very slow and I’d lose interest.  When I picked it up again this week I was just a few minutes away from it getting very interesting.  The pace was rapid up to the ending.  Adele is learning to be a weapon against the vampires but she does not want to be used like her teachers desire.

I think I will read the last book.  I want to know what happens and the audio is too slow at times.
