      I love vampire books, but not this one. I've had enough. DNF 59%.Victoria has to go to Italy to find some fringe pro-vampire group called the Tutela, who she hopes will lead her to a powerful vampire named Nedas who has an object that can give him the power to, I don't even remember or care, control the world somehow or something. The whole beginning just seemed like boring filler to me, nothing happened. There is this romance brewing with a pretty hot and sexy roguish character named Sebastian; [...]

      Colleen Gleason's series, The Gardella Vampire Chronicles, is not your average paranormal romance. It's heavier on the paranormal rather than the romance and is multi-layered, textured, and a cut above the pack. Her stories are so much more then girl meets vamp, vamp bites girl, struggle ensues (i love him, but I shouldn't), vamp saves girl from outside evil and they all live happily ever after.The big thing, and the thing that might drive average paranormal romance readers crazy in this series, [...]

      Oh, sure, just STAKE ME IN THE HEART why don't you!I talk about the love interests and romance portions of the book in the spoiler below. The plot stuff is your average plot stuff. Pretty good, but I have no complaints or urgent thoughts about it.(view spoiler)[I spent half the book ADORING Sebastian, my precious little cinnamon roll. Even though I am 98% sure he is not going to be the one for Victoria, because my ships never sail. Whatever, he was so charming and sexy and just ever-so-slightly [...]

      I really couldn't help it. As soon as I finished The Rest Falls Away, I immediately began reading book 2, and literally could not put it down-as in, I read it until 6 am. I am so happy I found this series. If you haven't read the first book, there is going to be a big spoiler coming up. Just a heads up.It's a year later, and Victoria's mourning is officially over as far as the ton(high society) is concerned. Now she is a very rich widow, and can pretty much do as she pleases. And what pleases he [...]

      4.5 StarsFull Review:*I received an ecopy of this book via Edelweiss. This has not influenced my review.*I went into this book fully expecting to have my heart ripped out after how painful the first book in the series was. Instead, I ended up on this rollercoaster of deceit, lies, subterfuge, and betrayal and I loved it. Seriously, if ever there were a book that perfectly compares to a rollercoaster, it's this one. Right from the beginning I was hooked, then everything kept building up and my an [...]

      Rises the Night was disappointing. I did not have high expectations for this series after the meh first book, but it did have the smallest spark of potential that I was hoping Gleason would ignite. She did not. This sequel ignored all of the things that worked for me in the first book: Max - by far the best character in the first book - was largely absent and a bit of mess upon his return. I also not expect a romance to be at the forefront of the story, especially after The Rest Falls Away’s e [...]

      After a long year of mourning, Lady Victoria Gardella Grantworth de Lacy is back to patrolling the streets of London, making sure that vampires can no longer feed on the innocent. She soon discovers that vampires plan to seize Akvan's Obelisk, an artifact that will allow the holder to control the dead. Victoria finds herself traveling to Italy where she tries to infiltrate a group of vampire supporters in order to find out who has the Obelisk. But there are too many people in the group who may b [...]

      *4.5 Stars* Gah! This seriesI just love it! ***I was an instant fan of this series following the stellar first installment. Vampire hunters in Regency-era England? Yes, please. Rises the Night picks up almost a year after the end of book 1 - that heartbreaking ending. Rises the Night is every bit as exciting and fascinating, with intrigue, a new evil on the rise, and questionable loyalties. This installment finds Victoria investigating and attempting to locate a new threat to humanity. No one ha [...]

    9. Paulina on said:

      Gah. It would have been a great book if it wasn't for the heroine's abominable taste in men, and the fact she turns into a doormat when hormones are involved. It was infuriating and severely dampened my enjoyment. It's been obvious since the first book that Sebastian is a spineless little worm who runs away at the first sign of trouble, but in this book he ups his game. Now, I like a literary bad boy as much as the next person, but he is not a bad boy. Again, he runs and hides when things get di [...]

      My ratings system is as follows. One star is GOOD. The book is entertaining, easy to read and you don't want to stop reading because something about the book is compelling you not to. Two stars is GREAT! This time the story is not only entertaining, but highly creative, unique, easy to read and hard to put down. Three stars is EXCELLENT. Here the book has all aspects of one and two stars, but now the book is thought and emotionally provoking. Four is AWESOME. This is the read that is not only cr [...]

      This is the second book in the Gardella Vampire Chronicles. There are a total of five books in this series. If you enjoyed the first book, you will enjoy this one. The world broadens some and Victoria is less care free than in the first bookIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T READ BOOK 1 IN THIS SERIES.Victoria is recovering from her husband’s untimely end in Book 1. Things between her and Sebastian are heating up. She ends up going to Rome in an attempt to uncover a new vampir [...]

      Book 2 in the Gardella Vampire chronicles. This book is good, but I didn’t think it was as good as her first. Maybe because I felt this is a little darker in nature. I marked down the stars simply because I was having a little trouble following the story line, the different characters, and the new vampire “object” which would help the vampires rule the world (this time it’s Akvan’s Obelisk, and the bad guy is Lilith’s son- Nedas). This book reminded me of The Empire Strikes Back , be [...]

      3.8Ever read a book and know that it's not going in the direction that you want/like? That there is a character that is more of a hindrance than a help to the main character? That the inclusion of the character is killing you enjoyment and some of the plot?Yet.You are somehow still interested enough, curious enough, to find out what happens?Well, come on down, you'll find out here, in this installment!!!Can you tell that I still want Sebastian to die a crazy, horrible, painful death? Let's put i [...]

    15. Cassandra Frederick on said:

      Rises the night was entertaining, but a step down from the first book. Rises the night was all over the place story-wise and seemed to move at a snails pace so I found it hard to stay interested at times. Another disappointment is Victoria. In the first book, I related to her struggles a lot and forgave a lot of her mistakes because she was young and still trying to balance a normal life with her duties. I was hoping that after the events of the last book, she would've returned a much stronger c [...]

      "Rises The Night" is the second book in Colleen Gleason's Gardella Vampire Chronicles series.Victoria has grown up a lot from where "The Rest Falls Away" leaves the readers off at. The characters in this series are all interesting and though they may not be unique characters (I find myself comparing Victoria, Max, and Sebastian to Mac, Jericho, and V'Lane from Karen Marie Moning's Fever series [which I loved] often), they are definitely likeable.One thing that didn't bother me as much in the fir [...]

    17. Duchess Nicole on said:

      So much better than the first book! I don't know if I'm more frustrated with Victoria, Sebastian, or Max. But I have a feeling my faith with at least two of them will be restored, though I'm guessing that that one of the big questions of the series is: who will Victoria end up with? Sebastian shows a bit more empathy, though there is still plenty of his sarcastic, cocky humor. While the 'darkly brooding' Max is absent for a good bit of the first half of the book, he more than makes up for it in [...]

      *Whew* The author was not afraid to go places that a lot of authors would not take their characters. I loved that it was so difficult to tell who was good and who was bad in this book.I can't give away my shocking moment without spoiling the book. So, I won't. But, I did gain a lot of admiration for the author when something major happened near the end of the book. WOW. :)I will definitely be continuing this series. Love the love triangle. Love the characters. Love the historical angle. Love the [...]

    19. Deena on said:

      I've never actually been grateful to have a book end at 95% of the file before. There was probably an excerpt for the third title (or possibly the first) in some of the remaining space, but I didn't look to see.This book didn't start out badly, and for a while it seemed like it might be a bit better than the first one. By about 75%, however, Victoria was really wearing on me. When I started this I would have predicted that this could make a reasonable "filler" series while I wait for new titles [...]

    20. Yodamom on said:

      Great book, exciting story and caracters, fantasic story line, the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it broke my heart. It would be hard to read this again, though good enough to read several times. Victoria has her family torn and ripped from her, he beliefs crushed, it left me with a feeling of no hope for her. I need a break before going on in this story, what a great author, she really drove the story home !

    21. The Flooze on said:

      This installment is frustrating and thrilling. Victoria's tendency to be stubborn and impetuous leads to numerous close calls, and make me want to shake the woman. But the results are nail-biting scenes that had me frantically worrying about the final outcome. Others are right--it seems this series does get better and better!

    22. Heather on said:

      The two men in Victoria's life are infuriating. They both kind of love her and they both betray her while somehow continuing to save her at every turn. Great read!

    23. Laura on said:

      Victoria is finally coming out of mourning and ready to get back to killing vampires. Unfortunately all of the vampires seem to have left London. So she seeks them out in Italy where one vampire in particular is seeking to raise an undead army.which is very bad. She stumbles her way through an investigation where she gets little help from those who know more than her, who then chastise her for acting so rashly. I didn't enjoy this as much as the first one but I am definitely committed to continu [...]

      Mix perfetto di tutto ciò che dovrebbe esserci in un libro: azione, amore e colpi di scena.Fra i due rivali in amore (Seb e Max) per ora preferisco Seb: Max è piuttosto antipatico, arrogante e maleducato, mentre Seb è piacevolmente audace.Victoria è proprio l'eroina perfetta: non troppo arrogante, nè troppo modesta, abbastanza simpatica.e un po' confusa, ma chi non lo è?Si merita il massimo dei voti!

    25. Sandra Lazzell on said:

      A Step Up From the First Ok. The first book was cute then serious and good at the end. This second installment was great. I smiled with school-girl glee at the romantic scenes, rolling my eyes at my own self whilst doing so, and the action scenes had my heart pounding and my eyes racing accross the pages, unable to keep up with my adrenaline. Upon completion I instantly downloaded Book 3 lol

    26. Veronica Buckler on said:

      An excellent follow up to book one. More character interaction, exploring deeper into what makes everyone tick. Victoria’s mother and her two friends are sweet and funny and maybe a bit irritating at times, but in the best, doting mother way. This book is filled with edge-of-your-seat, Page-turning fight scenes, big bad vampires you love to hate and seriously smoldering lead men. Loved It! On to book three!

    27. Nicole on said:

      A lot of it is predictable, and still it had me wanting to continue reading and reading and reading the beginning was a bit slow I think, but from the moment on they arrive in Italy the pace picks up and I had a really hard time putting the book down. So yeah I enjoyed it A LOT! Can't wait for what the next book will bring. :)

    28. Robin Brock on said:

      This was the second book in a five-book series. I normally don’t seek out vampire-themed books, but I read the first one for a book club discussion and decided to try the second. I wasn’t blown away with the initial one, but this second one was better and am now officially hooked. 😊 I’ll get back to the third one soon.

      Con La Condanna del Vampiro continua la saga Cacciatori di Vampiri, di Colleen Gleason, pubblicata dalla Newton Compton e dedicata alla cacciatrice di vampiri Victoria. Sin dalle prime pagine è possibile notare quanto questo secondo volume sia nettamente superiore al primo, sia per quanto riguarda lo stile dell'autrice, sia per quanto riguarda la trama: se Cacciatori di Vampiri non era riuscito a convincervi del tutto, La Condanna del Vampiro riuscirà a farvi ricredere e a convincervi a dare u [...]
