Sandra “Dee” Daniels is a vampire’s worst nightmare. Sure, she couldn’t get up to five-six in the highest heels money can buy—not that she ever wears heels. But the monsters in her past and the stake in her boot are enough to keep most bloodsuckers interested in staying undead out of Baton Rouge.
But there are changes afoot on her turf. Rumors of a Born Master in town—a vampire so powerful he can make the streets run with blood. And a new face in Dee’s dive bars and alleyways—Simon Chase, a strong, sexy shadow with a haunted past of his own. Simon knows a lot about the dark side of Dee’s work. He knows even more about how to make her body spark with desire. But the hot lust shimmering between them is only the beginning. Because Simon also knows a secret that will change Dee’s life—if she can live long enough to uncover it.
I'll Be Slaying you is the 2nd book in the Night Watch Series.Some of you who have read the first book Eternal Hunter,it is Judes Story. I honestly did not believe Cynthia could get any better than that, but she has proved me wrong! I truly love that book, But after reading I'll Be Slaying You, I believe Cynthia has out done herself. The story she has brought us just kept getting better and better, and I could not put it down.
In I'll Be Slaying You we get the story of Sandra “Dee” Daniels and Simon. Dee is the only person in the Night Watch Group that is human.She may be a little thing on the outside, but don't let that fool you. With a horrible and tragic past, Dee lets nothing stand in her way when taking down the bad guys. Especially if you are a Vampire! Now Dee's character was not one of my favorites from the beggining, she just seemed like a girl who was trying to prove herself as being " a tuff girl" too much to everybody, but then again if you worked with all supernatural beings i'm sure one can tend to feel the need to prove you are just as bad ass as they are. But in I'll Be Slaying You we get a good mixture or the hard core bad ass, and the softer side of Dee.
Simon Chase, now Simon is Yummy in a giant package. Full of Mystery and running from a bad past. We don't get to find out what Simon is till about half way through the book, but Dee has many ideas of what she thinks Simon is, and man could she ever be farther from the truth. Simon comes in to help Dee, and knows everything there is to know about Dee. Simon even has a secret of his own about Dee, that will change everything, and the way Dee looks at the world. I really do enjoy Simons character. He's very mysterious, but does his best to help Dee, even when it means she very well may hate him in the end.
The world Cynthia has created with The Night Watch, has a great balance of mythical creatures such as Shape Shifters, Vampires, Demons, Witches, and who know what else she will bring us in the upcoming books in the series. We also get a nice mixture of all the characters so far and not just Dee and Simons. We get to see Jude, Zane, and a few other charcters from the first book. Jude.....we can never get enough Jude. But we also get to see Zane, a Demon, and Catalina a witch.I cannot wait to read Zaine's book. But Catalina, I don't like her very much. She seemed like a very good friend, and very strong willed witch, until the first sign of danger and she's running the opposite direction. So we will see how her story fares.
After starting this series, I have to tell you Cynthia's Night Watch Series is deffinently in my top 5 of the year!!!
