"The Longer the Fall" by Inanna Arthen is the 2nd in The Vampires of New England Series. This is a paranormal fiction novel written in the period of 1952 when the turmoil in America was just another obstacle for Diana Chilton to overcome as she teams up with Thomas Morgan, a vampire and fellow member of the order, to help him overcome his demons. Diana finds herself in a situation that will both try her beliefs and strengths.

Diana was going through a divorce, which was very much frowned upon in the 1950's, when she embarked on a journey to find the "hermit" of Pepperell, Thomas Morgan, a fellow member of the Order (oh yeah...he's a vampire too!). Diana is as high as a woman can get in the Order, which she has been a member of since childhood. Once Diana gets to Thomas, she realizes that he has been looking for her as well. He proposes a work of magic that neither one of them can resist. This plan will envelope their lives for the next two years and bring them in the path of many a friend and foe. They will struggle to complete their work as it involves many more outsiders than they had planned. During this journey, they both gain and lose, and they must give in and face things they would have never imagined.

My Thoughts: Overall, I only mildly enjoyed this novel. I found the storyline to be very "busy" and, at times, hard to follow. Diana seemed to have her own agenda while trying to help Thomas with his. Then throw in the other characters, a budding romance, hate, ex-lovers, and magic...it can make your head swim! The sex was definitely hot in each situation;  however, Diana came across as a little too aggressive for her time. The book even touches on lesbian relationship, which I found to be out of place for the time period, although not a turn-off. By the end of the book, I was a little confused and mentally exhausted. I found it was a drastic difference from the first novel in the series, "Mortal Touch", which I loved. I will probably give this author another chance.
