Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

In the Company of Vampires by Katie MacAlister
When Francesca arrives at GothFaire to save her mother from the trickster god, Loki, things go from bad to worse. Her immortal ex, Benedikt, is there, full of secrets-and with a new girlfriend. Now Fran must battle a power-hungry group who wishes to dominate both the immortal and mortal worlds-and the woman who claimed Ben's heart. It's a good thing Fran's no ordinary mortal...
Another hit from Missy MacAlister! I love it, she always has a new amazing read. In The Company of Vampires is the eighth novel in the Dark Ones series by the awesome Katie MacAlister.
This novel is all about lost love, and redemption, but with a supernatural twist.From the start, I enjoyed this book. The plot was good, the characters were fun, especially the three out of touch, hot Vikings.
Francesca is destined to be with Ben, she loves him but refuses to accept this destiny and with her own free will, she wishes to make her own destiny.
It's now five years past her "break up" with Ben, and she's as mixed up as ever. While reaching the door with her roommate, her roommate is kidnapped, when it turns out it was supposed to be Francesca that was kidnapped. Now her love life doesn't seem like such a big problem, because this assault is only the start of her problems. Now she has to deal with Loki, a missing mother and a broken heart. All while three vikings try to live the viking way in a modern world. She doesn't have it easy!
I really enjoyed this read. I liked the supporting characters a bunch, and felt they really made the story come together. I had a few problems with how easy it was for her to get back with Ben, not that I didn't want to see them together, because I did, but because there wasn't much of a build up to it. I like when a couple has to overcome obstacles throughout most of the book, before they unite. But that's just me.
That being said, this was a great read, and I hope MacAlister continues with these characters in another book. I would love to read more!
