"As a soldier, Cole Granger fights to restore peace to a world divided by war and evil. His extraordinary talents are enlisted to prevent the president's horrific premonition from becoming reality. Nothing--and no one--will stop him from fulfilling his duty. Especially the mysterious young woman who claims to be his comrade's sister. Enemy or ally, he can't yet determine. But one thing he knows for certain is that he must keep her close. Very close. Megan Fox's quest to uncover a family secret leads her to the center of vampire riots in West Virginia. To find the answers she needs--and clear herself of suspicion--she must join forces with Cole. They work undercover to bring justice, but they can't disguise the potent attraction and need that draw them together. Yet trust doesn't come easily for Cole...and when Megan unearths the grim, dark truth, can she trust him to believe her?"--P. [4] of cover.… (lisätietoja)

Most of us know how deadly and devastating the civil war is. Now try to imagine it even worse. With a third enemy that doesn't care which side of the war you are on. If you are human, then you're fair game. There is a pestilence that is ravaging the land, both North and South, and that pestilence is an army of savage vampires that seem intent on wiping out the human race all together. Only a select few realize the truth behind the strange deaths. Most choose to believe that it is some strange new disease that is highly contagious.

Megan Fox is different. She knows the truth. In fact, half of her is the truth. She is half vampire and has managed to retain control of her hunger and kept her soul. She is on the hunt to eliminate the vampires that have turned to pure evil. Along the way she finds her half-brother, another like her, that also hunts the vampires with a group of his friends, and has been for years.

One of these friends is Cole Granger, a Texas sheriff that has not taken any sides in the Civil War. Apparently Texas has too much to deal with - outlaws, Indians, and vampires. Word of a large outbreak of this "disease" in a military prison brings them East and into the very heart of the Civil War. Cole finds it difficult to trust Megan at first. After all, he's only met one other half-vampire before and tends to hold to the kill it before it can kill you mentality.

As the death count rises and more and more vampires are brought back, Megan struggles with her rising feelings for Cole and strives to earn his trust. But can they learn to trust each other and work together in time? The scales are tipping, and it's not in favor of the humans.

This story had quite a nice twist on traditional vampire historical fiction novels. Since the war is taking place, it's very easy for unexplained deaths to be blamed on wounds received in the field. And with so many being buried away from home, who is there to notice that the dead aren't staying put. The characters of Megan and Cole were very well written. Neither one really trusted the other, with good reason, for quite awhile. Their relationship grew in a very realistic way, even if it did progress rather quickly. The downfall of Megan's character is that she is obsessed with the search for her father, a full vampire, and her search puts many in danger time and time again. It just seemed like she never learned and grew.

If it isn't bad enough the civil war is going on there is a much greater threat.........rouge vampires.

Megan Fox, a half breed vampire is send to Washington D.C. to help put a stop to the spreading of 'the disease'. Here she meets up with her half brother Cody who's joined forces with the Texas sheriff Cole. Cody, also a half breed doesn't know he has a sister and she isn't exactly welcomed with open arms. They believe soon enough that she is Cody’s sister but can they trust her? Cole especially is weary of trusting her. When Abraham Lincoln himself sends Megan and Cole to Harpers Ferry to put a stop to the spread of the disease, they need to rely on each other to survive.

The chemistry between Megan and Cole is great, the attraction is obvious but the issue is trust. Cole doesn't know he can trust her since she is half vampire, although he would trust Cody with his life. The attraction just gets bigger between them when the story developed.

While certain events take place Megan is beginning to believe that her and Cody's father (fully vampire) is fighting along beside them. While the others are (very) skeptical about this, she is getting more and more convinced.

This was my first novel by Heather Graham and I really liked it. It's well written, suits the time it's written in, the characters are well developed and it’s fast pasted from the beginning, not a dull moment in this story. I already got a few other books by Heather Graham added to my wish list. ( )

Two of my favorite genres combined into one book! Historical fiction and the paranormal meet in this great read! Megan Fox, a half-breed vampire, is tasked with going to Washington D.C. by General Robert E. Lee to try to stop the spread of the "disease" as they call it. There she unites with her brother, Cody, who is also a half-breed and meets Cole Granger, a Texan sheriff. Cody and Cole have teamed up with others who are also fighting the outbreak of vampirism. President Abraham Lincoln sends Cole and Megan to Harpers Ferry where he has seen a vision of a little drummer boy that must be put down and the final battle will ensue. Along the way they figure that someone close to the camp must be a traitor because the vampires seem to be attacking out of revenge not out of hunger.

Megan and Cole's attraction to each other is obvious. But the problem is trust. Cole isn't sure if he can trust her because she is part vampire and Megan isn't sure she can trust herself with Cole. It was easy to fall in love with these two characters and cheer for them. This book was just a great fantastic read! ( )

Wonderful Romantic Historical Fiction

In "Night of the Vampires", vampires are not your suffering protagonist who is trying to hold on to their humanity. Here, vampires return to their role as horror monsters in this romance set during the Civil War. Except, in this universe's Civil War, there is a third player who doesn't care about the differences between North and South or slavery or states' rights - this one wants to use Americans' distraction killing each other to establish nation of vampires.

Our heroine, Megan Fox, is a vampire hunter from the South and she struggles with her past and her identity. Cole Granger is a Texas sheriff who put down a vampire infestation before and has been working with other vampire hunters from the North. Cole and Megan collide with each other during a hunt to put down an infestation at a Virginia prison. She must prove that she's not a vampire, not a spy for the South and is indeed the sister of one of the hunters. Above all of that, she must prove that she can be trusted when in a fight.

Graham weaves a wonderful historical fiction tale that takes the reader back in time. The pain and the horror of the human war is a powerful backdrop for this battle with vampires worthy of any horror film. Readers of paranormal romance or historical fiction will love this work! ( )

This review and others can be seen on my blog: http://bookworm-meags222.blogspot.com

I received this book from NetGalley as an ARC. I have to say that this is not the kind of book that I would normally read. I was honestly expecting a cheesy paranormal romance novel with lots of steamy scenes and no plot. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Graham sets this vampire novel during the American Civil War and there is quite a bit of historical content in this novel. I wouldn't say that Graham goes in depth about the war but at the same time I found that I had never read anything quite like this. A book that combines historical fiction and romance. As a history minor in university, I found that I was intrigued by this spin on history. I liked the direction that the book was going in and for the most part it kept me entertained and interested. In fact when the book was done I was left wanting a bit more. I almost felt that the ending was rushed a bit. The author could have taken the time to develop the plot and add more to it. When I finished reading the book I just felt that there was something missing. I really liked the characters in the book and I also would have liked to know a bit more about Megan Fox's relationship with her mother and her father. Overall, I have to say that I enjoyed this book and I give it 3 out of 5 stars ( )
