Black Bullet & Releasing the Demons by L.D. Rose WITH REVIEWS

L.D. Rose

 Black Bullet by L.D. Rose
Book Blurb:
Displaying Black bullet_505x825 (1) Final.jpgFledgling vampire Jonathan Kerr has just met his match.

Not even his past life as a former marine and FBI agent could prepare him for the battle against the monster inside him, struggling to take hold. After an old nemesis of the Senary surfaces in Brooklyn, unleashing chaos and terror in the battered borough, Jon sets out to take him down. Instead, he ends up with far more than he bargained for when he clashes with the beautiful half-vampire hybrid, Lawan Knight.

After escaping near death and suffering unspeakable horror at the hands of vampires, Lawan trusts no one, regardless of species. In between bouts of drunken stupor, her only goal is to exterminate all those who've wronged her, including every member of Jon's vampire bloodline. But Jon’s soulful eyes and quick smile crawls under her skin, transforming her black and white world into a hazy shade of gray.

As the days rapidly grow darker, Jon and Lawan turn to one another, but their inner demons threaten to tear them apart. The only way either of them will survive is if they overcome their greatest fear—love.

Black Bullet is the second book in The Order of the Senary by L.D. Rose. It follows the story of Jon and Lawan both who are damaged souls so to speak. There past makes loving someone hard.

I personally did not love this book. I liked it and found the plot interesting. I just could not get into it. I would certainly read a different book by L.D Rose. I would also say just because this book was not my cup of tea does not mean you won’t love it.

Black bullet is the second book in this series. It follows the exact same storyline as the first. It's full of action and of course drama. In book one we followed Blaze story whereas in Black Bullet we follow Jons. I think the characters fit the story well. 
The order has a new vampire hybrid around and she's female which brings about some issues. They are unsure of what she is fully capable of nor does she understand what Jon is. He's not a hybrid nor a vampire out to kill, but can she trust him? Lawson like Blaze has been through hell (I'll leave it at that) and she is terrified to get close to anyone. Will she find closure with Jon? The order is out there again trying to save the world from these vampire's who apparently think they get away with it.

Displaying RELEASING THE DEMONS2_505x825 (2).jpgBlaze Knight has been through hell and back, but the nightmares aren't over yet.

Five years after Blaze was maimed by Cyrus Chimola, a powerful vampire with a penchant for torture, he’s still trying to pick up the pieces of his shattered life. As a genetically engineered mercenary with the ability to bend fire to his will and to see in infrared, Blaze’s mission is to protect what’s left of humanity. When Chimola and his crew return to the Bronx gunning for Blaze’s blood, Blaze is forced to face the demons of his past. Hell-bent on revenge, he seeks the help of Valerie Medeiros, an NYPD detective who manages to steal his heart and save his life in more ways than one.

Motivated by her sister’s gruesome death, Valerie has made it her life’s goal to bury every vampire in the ground where they belong. When she brings in Blaze Knight for suspected murder, she discovers he’s not only innocent, he isn't a man at all—he's a half-vampire hybrid working with a band of brothers for the U.S. military. Valerie has a hard time trusting anything with fangs, yet she quickly falls headlong into Blaze’s life, a life full of darkness and horror she can’t even begin to fathom. The bodies are stacking up, but Valerie can’t seem to let go of this hybrid, a beautiful monster filled with pain, rage, and passion unlike anything she's ever known.

In a world where the line between good and evil is blurred, Blaze and Valerie will find danger at every turn, risking everything they’ve come to know and love, including one another.

Overall I think I really enjoyed this book. It's a bit different and took a little while for me to grow to understand where the the plot was leading me but it all seemed to fall in place as I got further in.  
Blaze and Valerie both struggle with haunted pasts of intense suffering and pain. Blaze is a half breed and Valerie is an agent investigating a crime she believes Blaze committed. But there's more.....
This book has a good mix of suspense with an extra splash of romance. Some scenes are graphic and brutal to read through but the intensity is worth it.
