Gleason, RISES THE NIGHT & THE BLEEDING DUSK

I read the second and third of Colleen Gleason's Gardella books while vacationing. Both Rises the Night and The Bleeding Dusk are more cinematic than the first one. I particularly thought the comic relief, in the form of Victoria's maid bantering with her driver, and Victoria's mother and her two silly friends, was like scenes you'd see in a movie. They were cute, but I didn't enjoy those scenes as much, because I was reading for the dificult decisions and angst.

I am still liking that Victoria, while a venator (vampire slayer), is still only twenty years old, and her choices seem age-appropriate to me. Also, we can see her growing and learning.

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on yaoi, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc. Repost in your own journal if you are so inclined.
