Review: Stolen Nights
Stolen Nights by Rebecca Maizel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lenah Beaudonte was a Vampire Queen, but that status is no longer valid because she is not a vampire anymore. After she sacrifices her newly mortal life in order to turn another vampire back into a mortal, she finds her life has not ended and she has powers of her own. As she learns what these powers are and tries to come to terms with their impact on her life, a former member of her vampire coven comes to her boarding school community and begins killing and threatening Lenah’s friends. This vampire wants a ritual that Lenah is not willing to share and she must accept many truths about herself and those she loves in order to save any of them.
Stolen Nights takes the reader back into the Vampire Queen Story just days after the first book ends. New facets of Lenah’s past lives are revealed during conversations and flash backs; additional twists and turns of the supernatural world impact those currently around her. Rebecca Maizel does a wonderful job of weaving reminders into this book so that readers who have a gap between the first and second book don’t feel confused. The ending of Stolen Nights may make this a pair of books, but I see a few openings in which Maizel may continue the series in the future.
