Friday Memes: Dead of Night by Lynn Viehl

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week.

Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I am reading Dead of Night by Lynn Viehl. This is the second book in the Youngbloods series. I received this eARC from Flux via NetGalley. It will be published on July 8. Here is the description:

True love . . . and an undying obsession

Catlyn Youngblood has a secret life. Despite being a natural-born vampire hunter like her two older brothers, Cat has fallen for Jesse—an ageless boy from a centuries-old vampire clan.

Cat’s job cataloguing rare, mystical texts at a bookstore allows her to meet with Jesse alone every evening. But when girls who look disturbingly similar to Cat start disappearing from town, Cat and Jesse discover frightening clues to their whereabouts within the book collection. Together, they must stop a crazed man from realizing his dark scheme— one that would claim Cat’s life. 
Most people have two lives. One is the life we carry on in the open where everyone can see it.
Friday 56:
"I was thinking that we could put something inside the cabin," I said. "It would just have to be light-proof, and big enough for you to get inside. That way we could leave the outside of the cabin like it is, as camouflage."

This is a very modern day version of Romeo and Juliet except Romeo is almost a vampire and Juliet is from a noted vampire hunting family. Neither family is pleased that two have fallen in love.


  1. I like the sounds of this. The two families have more reason to be upset with their children dating one another than the Montagues and Capulets did.

    Here's my Book Beginnings.

  2. I like the beginning, it's very true. I'm usually bit pessimistic about modern versions of Romeo & Juliet, especially when vampires are involved! But I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for sharing!
