Ruth Miranda has a way with words that really pulls me into her books.
I Am the Night is a continuation of the Blood Trilogy series. It takes place inbetween the first and second novels, but it’s still one marvelous read.
In this little novella, we take a peek into Marcus’s life. His back story of becoming a vampire is more fleshed out this time around. I have to say that I really enjoyed it, despite all of it’s brutality. There’s lots of blood, gore and sex yet it doesn’t feel over the top. Somehow, Ruth also manages to mix in the raw emotion and crazy roller coaster that Marcus is going through. The highs and the lows are all present, and somehow she moves seamlessly from one to the other. It’s really intriguing to read, to be brutally honest.
I was totally addicted to the Blood trilogy, so this little novella made perfect sense to me. I wouldn’t recommend picking this story up unless you’ve at least read the first book in that series. It won’t make much sense otherwise. I’d label this book a “companion” novel to that main series. I’d like to see more little side stories like this one in the Blood trilogy series. It’s such a good series with so much plot and development! It deserves little stories like this to keep it alive!
I’d give this book an R rating for the intense horror of blood and death. It’s not overly horrific, but if you don’t like hearing about vampires killing people or blood then this book won’t be for you!
Overall, this book is epic! I love Ruth Miranda and her work! It’s no surprise that I’d binge read this book in one sitting too. It was well worth the wait and I hope Ruth brings some more books my way!
Five out of five stars!
