Someone is hunting shadow demons.
A magical amulet is trying to control Val.
A sexy cowboy vamp is tired of waiting.
When unknown demon hunters from a dark religious sect focus on killing Shade, Val's ex-boyfriend and shadow demon, she has to bury her feelings of rejection and do her job as Paladin for the Demon Underground. But protecting Shade is more difficult than she ever imagined.
Shade is fighting his own internal demons as long-suppressed memories begin to surface. Lola, Val's inner succubus, can barely suck, which leaves Val dangerously weak. Austin, Lola's vamp of choice over Val's objections insists his job is to protect the Paladin regardless of Val's opinion on the matter. Fang is distracted by the impending birth of his pups.
Val is distracted by Austin and the tangle of feelings she has for two gorgeously irritating guys who couldn't be more different.
When she learns the demon hunters' shocking identities, Val will need all her allies ready, willing and able to help her fight. Even with luck, the cost of saving the world may be more than Val can bear to pay

There were some changes in this book. It wasn't as funny as it used to be with Fang and Val. Maybe because Fang's getting too serious, what with his responsabilities with Princess and the puppies, and Val's lack of strenght and her problem with Lola messing up her life big time. Shade's acting like an idiot didn't help either. He was too damn annoying for his own good. I really wanted to kick his sorry ass in this book! As much as in Make Me. I'm starting to realize he's a selfish, childish, insecure and annoying jerk. He seemed so cute and sweet and hot at first, that even though I still thought he was a tiny bit childish at times, I could see he really liked Val and I kind of liked him. Especially after how Dan hurt her. But since their adventure in Austin (the city) in Make Me, Shade's been acting really stupid and all he's done is hurting Val and blaming her for his mistakes and has put her in danger because he's too stupid to admit she's right and he sometimes needs to be rescued.
I am starting to really, really like Austin, instead. I admit that I might have fallen in love with him already. He's near perfect. He's protective but not oppressive, he's sweet in his own way and he's incredibly sexy. He shows his feelings and his need to protect Val without being an annoying Macho Man. I have to say that I suspected since the beginning that he liked Val. Even though she had the impression he wanted to make a fool of her, I knew that his secrets smiles and jokes were because he liked her secretely. And damn, how sexy he is! I love cowboys! One other thing I liked about Austin was his will to finally let Val see how much he cares about her and how much he's into her. He also showed her she deserves better than a selfish child as a boyfriend. She seems more mature than Shade is, even though she's younger.
I also liked a lot the scene of Austin and Val on the bed after she healed Shade. How cute and hot! And I also liked the ending. The final scene with Val and Austin. He was so sweet giving her roses and staging a zombie party for her on Valentine's day.
The only thing I resent is that we don't even know what color his eyes and hair are. Or did I miss it??? I've been re-reading all the books these days and I haven't found anything about his features but his cowboy hat and his lean, muscled, yummy body. I'm assuming he's got brown hair and eyes though. I'm imagining him that way. Then maybe I'm wrong and he's blond and green-eyed, who knows? (But I hope not) So, I'm asking the author for details on Austin, please! We don't know much about him!
The story was good and I couldn't put the book down, not even a minute! The mystery, the fights, the romance, the drama.... all good! I wanted more and more and couldn't stop reading!
Highly recommended! And I assure you, you'll fall in love with Austin too! If you haven't yet!
Well done, Parker Blue! Now I want Catch Me as soon as possible! I NEED it!
It felt like this book was trying to fit the mold of typical YA books. Tons of brooding, a love triangle, with adventure as a afterthought. It is a shame, because the fact that this series is different is what made it great. I'm not going to give up, hopefully the next book will get back on track.
Well, since Ms. Blue insisted on making the love triangle one of the main focuses of this book, I figure I'd humor everyone with some insight into that particular headache:
Val and Shade's relationship takes a turn for the worse after many trying occurrences in "Make Me." Shade is resentful toward Val and her part in his overall feelings of abandonment. Here we start to see Shade showing his true colors. (Or perhaps they're not necessarily his true colors; More like his hidden shades. Seems fitting for one named after such shades.) He is pushing Val away at every turn, claiming it's for her own good, yet it's truly for his good alone. He also maintains his bogus claims of self-help, insisting that he can save himself/take care of himself, without Val's help. Needless to say, no one else is near as confident and so he's forced to suck it up and accept Val's help, and by default Austin's. What a recipe for disaster. Shade makes it clear that, though he doesn't want Val, Austin can't have her either. He's constantly jealous of the time Val and Austin spend together and makes life unbearable for them all because of it. What a baby.
Austin has sworn himself as Val's protector, since she is still weak from the backlash of invoking the spells of the Encyclopedia Magicka. To help rebuild her strength, he's only too willing to allow Val to use his lustful energy to regain it. He's falling hard for Val and everyone knows it; except of course for Val. Poor cowboy. He's loyal, faithful, and an all-around caring person. All he can see for Val is her welfare and he'll leave no ends unmet in order to see that she's safe.
And then there's Val. She's still hopelessly pining after her shadow demon, believing time will heal all wounds. She fails to realize that Shade isn't capable of or willing to heal all his wounds where she's concerned. She thinks that her love for him will be the cure to all heartaches. But the wounds won't heal quickly enough for Val to regain what she's lost, so she must rely upon the only person willing and able to help her. (Insert hunky, awesome, vampire cowboy HERE!!)
And I think that's enough of that jazz.
Once again, an unknown evil is trying to take over the world, one human, vampire, and demon at a time. With the use of his own blood, he can control any being; anytime, anyplace, anyway. Allies will fall victim to evil's embrace. And only one person can contain the madness that has entered into their world; that is, if she doesn't fall victim to her own personal demons first.
I very much enjoyed this fifth installment of the DU series. However, I'd like to suggest a vast change of plot, and pronto!! Sorry, but this 'unknown evil taking over Texas through blood corruption to the general paranormal/human populace' is getting very worn out. It's time for some fresh material Blue! If nothing new arises, I'd suggest a tied-up ending with rainbows and sunshine, please!!
Shade has pushed her away, but no matter, Shade Demons are being hunted and she's decided she will prove her love to him by saving him. Val and Shade have a complicated relationship as it is. He's trying to stay so far away from her, and she heartbroken that he could just throw her away. But she has to keep going. There's people that need her help and she needs to be their protector. And then Shade's sister shows up, hell Shade has a sister?!? So things are even more tense. And Val needs help protecting everyone, so she reluctantly lets Austin, the SMOKING HAWT vamper help out. I cannot believe I'm going to say this, but I am all team Vamper right now. After this book, Austin has my sole vote. He's damn well earned it. And Shade, I loved him, but boy oh boy is he making it hard to just not hate him.
Seriously though, I always thought it would be Val and Shade to the end. Well, I now see the end of them. This one was definitely an emotional ride for me. I was so mad, then sad, then excited, then worried. And now, I'm still a little shocked but I can't wait for so much more! And seriously Austin is HAWT! Like I LURVE him :) Damn, I'm on team Vamper, which is surely not my usual pick LOL But after getting a few sneak peaks into POVs from Val, Shade, and Austin, I can't help it. Having those POVs has made things so much more intriguing!
Val deserves to be happy, even if she has to risk her life all the time for everyone else, so I sure do hope we get MORE MORE MORE, SOON SOON SOON! I love love this series and I cannot wait for another great ride! 5 EXCEPTIONALLY PHENOMENAL PAWS!
Plot: So, this is a series and this is the 5th book i the series. I have been following it since the first time I discovered it and look forward to every book released since. So, with that said the plot once again moves in so may dramatic ways. Val is fighting for life and is once again, fighting for the guy she loves. I like that the plot is never boring but always entertaining. Either by sarcastic comments or cray dog conversations, I totally enjoyed being immersed is this book.
Love: What is it with Val finding a bunch of jerks? I want Val to find someone worthy of her cause to be honest those guys that she sees are soooo not good enough. Val doesn’t think highly of herself. She…well Val is Val. She need someone strong and capable like her. Like the sexy cowboy who keeps coming in her life. (wink,wink)
Ending: I think the ending is very good and can carry on to another book. Which I’m totally excited about. I’m hoping that Val can find some peace and LOVE that is stable and not from her dog Fang. Fang, I love that dog. He is so funny and keeps Val in check.
If you haven’t check out this series you should! It’s very good with lots of great action and characters. This is a great addition to the series and I can not wait to see what happens next. Dare Me is awesome!
