Book pick: ‘Rajmund’ a must read for Vampires in America fans August 26, 2010

Here’s another good one from Dot on the latest book in the VAMPIRES IN AMERICA series.   “I love this author (D.B. Reynolds)! ” says Dot — PR’s vampire expert.  “She keeps me riveted to the books. Only problem, I have to wait a year for the next ones.” And we all can relate to that when it comes to reading a good series. Dot’s book pick follows. CLICK HERE to read her previous reviews on this series.


D.B. Reynolds weaves together a mystery along with sizzling romance in RAJMUND, book No. 3 in the VAMPIRES IN AMERICA series.   A young human woman has been kidnapped and vampires are suspected of not only this crime but of the kidnapping of several other women.  Rajmund (pronounced Rye-mund or Raj like in Rodger) is called from New York City to Buffalo, NY, by his vampire lord, Krystof, who has a tenuous grasp on his territory.  Raj is poised to take over the territory but first he must clear up the mystery of these missing women.  A distraction comes in the person of human Sarah Stratton, a professor at a Buffalo university.  Sarah has information about the missing women but has secrets of her own to keep hidden.  She has been previously introduced to Raj while on a weekend in NYC.  Sparks flew then and they continue to fly when they meet again in Buffalo.

RAJMUND, the third installment in D.B.Reynolds Vampires In America,  series does not disappoint one little bit.  It has all the action and romance of the first two books (RAPHAEL[1] and JABRIL[2]). There are tantalizing surprises as the story unfolds. Raj is a totally hot, sexy, dangerous, alpha vampire.  His only discernible fault is calling the heroine “little one.”  For those who want their heroines to be of the kick-ass variety, Sarah is not that. Sarah is sometimes annoying in her disregard for her own safety.  But Reynolds compensates by having Raj’s second in command, a vampire named Emelie, do more than an adequate job of butt kicking. Once again, this was  a Reynolds’ book, I could not put down.   I personally enjoy how dangerous Reynolds’ vampires are because they are not to be trifled with one bit. Yum! I do suggest that the series be read in order, if only so you can enjoy the series as it unfolds.

Books  No. 4 SOPHIA and No. 5 DUNCAN will be published in 2011.  Reynolds has just announced that her contract has been extended to include eight books in her series.

I thought Rajmund was a great read. The characters were interesting and complex without being too complicated. Both Rajmund had internal and external conflicts that they battled and those battles kept the book interesting and engaging. There were two places in the book where Ms. Reynolds and her editor missed that she had changed Rajmund’s name to Raymond but other than that…it was an entertaining and engaging read.
