Serafina and the Silent Vampire (Serafina's #1) by Marie Treanor

The Book
Release Date: 28 August 2012

Silence has never been so sinful…

Welcome to Edinburgh's unique psychic investigation agency, Serafina's.

Serafina MacBride is psychic - but not strictly honest. While staging a hilarious vampire attack at a client's party, Sera is stunned to encounter a real vampire - annoying, gorgeous and inaudible to everyone but her. When her client's son is found dead with puncture wounds in his neck, she tracks the silent vampire to his lair.

But the amoral and seductive Blair is also on a mission - to find and kill a nest of young vampires who've invaded his territory. Soon Sera is drawn into the bizarre world of the undead, where danger lurks in the shadows along with forbidden sensual delights - and a murderous conspiracy to flood the world with financially astute vampires who talk.

Supported and hindered by Blair's eccentric, undead friends, and by her own motley crew from Serafina's, Sera and Blair uncover surprising truths about each other and about the mysterious Founder from whom all vampires are descended.

In the end, Sera draws on powers she never knew she had in a frantic fight to defeat the forces of evil and preserve the strange, complicated being she's trying so hard not to love.

My Opinion  3 STARS
**ARC Provided by Netgalley and Marie Treanor for an honest review**

This book certainly had a different twist on vampires. Vampires that didn't dazzle and couldn't talk other than telepathically with each other.

Serafina was a strong character but i found it hard to identify with her or her emotions and found the relationships a little stiff.

Blair the love interest and main Vampire held true to what he was portrayed and i loved his honesty. Still he fell a little flat for my tastes.

I struggled through this book, finding slow reading. I was never gripped by the story and struggled to pick the book up once i had put it down. 

I probably will never pick this up again to read.
