Jun 06, Briar’s Reviews rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love Katie MacAlister macalsiter she’s not your typical romance novelist. One summer, years ago, I binged as much of her and Gena Showalter as I could get my hands on it helped that I didn’t have a part time job at the time, so literally all of my time was allocated to Katie, Gena, Rachel Vi In The Company of Vampires is a romantic tale told by Katie MacAlister.
One summer, years ago, I binged as much of her and Gena Showalter as I could get my hands on it helped that I didn’t vammpires a part time job at the time, so literally all of my time was allocated to Katie, Gena, Rachel Vincent, and a few other novelists. Fran and Benedikt are the leads of this book – if you haven’t picked up Katie MacAlister before, these two leads were going to be the main character in her Confessions of a Vampire’s Girlfriend YA series that didn’t go very far.
I absolutely loved that little series, and was broken-hearted when I discovered it was not being continued. But then, Katie did what all the best novelists do, she brought them into the adult romance genre. This book was hot and steamy and everything I wanted it to be. She starts it off in a great manner – these characters haven’t seen each other for a while which makes sense since the YA was cancelled and we never knew what actually happened to them, since it was a sudden stop.
The drama, romance and steamy sex scenes that follow will melt you. This book is fast macaister, and it’s absolutely hilarious. Katie always adds a sense of humor into her books – so it’s not a serious romance novel.
When you have vampires, crazy unrealistic drama and the supernatural around, you might as vanpires add in some humor! All of that together ties in for a perfectly good guilty pleasure read! I’ve picked up this specific book quite a few times, because it’s my favourite out of all the Dark Ones series. And if you have read her previous books, yup, the vikings are back.
Katie has a thing for vikings You’ll figure that out the more you read her novels. Overall, I love this series. It’s one of my giant guilty pleasures that I reread when I’m having a bad day. I definitely recommend this book if you want something easy to read, something funny, romantic or fast, or just kaatie something that isn’t your typical romance novel.
Five out of five stars. Mar 19, Cindy rated it really liked it Shelves: This is the third in the Ben and Fran books. The first two, Got Fangs? And Circus of the Darned, were young adult novels. This tthe is not. It takes place five years after the previous two and Fran has broken off with Ben, graduated from college and finds herself still miserable. The action starts off with the kidnapping of Fran’s roommate.
During the rescue by Fran of course it becomes apparent that Loki is at the root of the kidnapping. Norse gods have long memories. When Fran calls her mot This is the third in the Ben and Fran books. When Fran calls her mother, only to find tye her mother is missing, she fears the worst. Fran immediately makes plans to head for Europe and the GothFaire, only to be interrupted by the arrival of her Vikings from book 2.
It seems that Freya sent them to help her get rid of Loki using the necklace. Unfortunately she left the necklace in Europe so it is not immediately accessible. Her Vikings insist on going along with her.
Fortunately Freya provided them with their own Visa card so the only problem is convincing them they have to leave their weapons behind.
In the Company of Vampires |
She arrives at the GothFaire only to discover a wide range of problems. Ben is there and with another woman. Yes she blew him off but she hadn’t really expected him to move on vampiress after all, she hasn’t. Imogen is there but the necklace isn’t and her mom is still missing. While checking through her mom’s things for clues she finds a birth certificate indicating she has an older half-sister she never knew about.
Like the other books this one has lots of wacky details; the town where the GothFaire is currently located is competing for a Wagnerian opera company so everyone is wearing Wagnerian costumes including cross-dressing mermaid cabdrivers and frequently bursting into song.
Her Vikings have gone shopping and are now being Viking ninjas based on having seen a ninja movie on TV and have picked up new weaponry. The plot concerns rescuing mom, saving shape shifters, compamy Loki, and of course resolving Ben and Fran’s relationship problems.

There is really hard not to like any of the books Katie MacAlister writes.
That is why I asked B. So In the Company of Vampires ey? Yes, ja and da! Trouble starts brewing with a capital B. Make that furiously boiling. Did I mention Vikings?
Fran left the Goth Faire five years ago to go to college and also got a job. Fran fights the whole system. She wants her and Ben compan be together because they belong together and can make it work together, not because of some destiny. In effect they are practically broken up. So with romance trouble, mystery mayhem, pillaging and rutting their own words Vikings, a bitchy friend, liches, demons and carnivals, Fran has enough to deal with right?

Well there is also the little problem of her arch enemy…Loki. That makes that is book is full of plot and then some.
It makes for a highly entertaining story that moves at maccalister fast pace. The Vikings are constantly entertaining us with their comic relief and annoying Fran to no end.
At points I thought it was a little too much, but they were too cute to be a bother. What I liked The above is not enough? With Katie Ths, no character is alike.
The same goes for Ben. But Fran is no woman to mess with. She is not so accepting of the whole Beloved thing. That cause some bumps in the road and Fran to overlook some vital issue. Ben for his part is very accepting. MacAlister made him a perfect blend of caring, seductive, romantic, protective and accepting. Katie knows how fompany spin a story and to use the right words so they make not only a unique story, but also unique characters.
