Hooked on yet another series

Yup, I actually went shopping at a bookstore (Books-a-million... and stop gasping in shock!) last Friday and actually bought a book.  "Night Rising" by Chris Marie Green.  And, well, it's a very awesome book and I now want to go find the rest of the series and buy 'em up.  (They're only $8 a book and I only have four more in the series to get... so far... has anyone found that ever-elusive money tree yet?) 

Seriously, though, it's a great book filled with action, deliciously raunchy scenes, and enough to keep you guessing that you want to read the next.  The vampire mythos fits perfectly with Hollywood and its glitzy scene.  It isn't your common variety of Dracula-type vampires that feed on the unwilling, either.  Which only adds to the fun of this series.

Night Rising:

Welcome to Hollywood—after dark…

Stuntwoman Dawn Madison is a girl with a lot of attitude—and a lot of issues, mostly about living up to the legacy of her mother, a world famous movie star/sex symbol, whose death left Dawn to be raised by her dad Frank, nobody’s notion of single-father-of-the-year. Now that she’s all grown up, she and Frank aren’t on the best of terms, to say the least.

Still, he is her dad, and when he vanishes while investigating the bizarre sighting—caught on film—of a supposedly long-dead child star, she comes home to Tinseltown to join the search for him. Working with his colleagues—a psychic short in stature but big in dreams of stardom, a beautiful Latina techno-geek, and the P. I. firm’s never-seen boss—she discovers an erotic and bloody underground society made up of creatures she thought existed only on the screen.

They are devious. They are deadly. And some of them are dangerously attractive…
