Review ~ The Rest Falls Away by Colleen Gleason

5 Stars!!

Beneath the glitter of dazzling 19th-century London Society lurks a bloodthirsty evil...

Book Description (from author's website): Vampires have always lived among them, quietly attacking unsuspecting debutantes and dandified lords as well as hackney drivers and Bond Street milliners. If not for the vampire slayers of the Gardella family, these immortal creatures would have long taken over the world.
In every generation, a Gardella is called to accept the family legacy, and this time, Victoria Gardella Grantworth is chosen, on the eve of her debut, to carry the stake.
But as she moves between the crush of ballrooms and dangerous, moonlit streets, Victoria's heart is torn between London's most eligible bachelor, the Marquess of Rockley, and her enigmatic ally, Sebastian Vioget. And when she comes face to face with the most powerful vampire in history, Victoria must ultimately make the choice between duty and love.

My Thoughts: If you are looking for something a little different in your romance novels look no further then the Gardella Chronicles. This is the first book in a 5 book series it takes paranormal and combines it with the Regency time period.
When I say that this is a different type of romance I mean that you don’t really know who the hero is or who Victoria will ultimately end up with.
Victoria is a vampire slayer or a Venator she is given this legacy by her aunt who is also her mentor.
There are three men that Victoria is involved with through out the book. There is Max who is a fellow Venator. He was not born a Venator he had to go through certain tests to become one. There is a lot of chemistry between Victoria and Max. He is always there for her as she is learning how to be a vampire slayer. There is the mysterious Sebastion who is the bad boy that you’re not sure you can trust, but there is just something about him. There is also Phillip who is the normal guy who Victoria can never tell him what she is.

So who does Victoria end up with? I don’t want to spoil it, but I will say that make sure you have the second available after you finish this one or you will be very mad!!

There is a lot that happens in this book and I don’t want to give any spoilers.

Pick up this series if you’re looking for something a little different. Do you like historials? Do you like paranormals? Then you definitely want to pick up this book.

Happy Reading!!

I loved this series!! The first isn't a favorite of mine, but they really pick up steam later on.
