Series: Deep In Your Veins #1
Published by Suzanne Wright on January 13th 2012
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance
Sam Parker is a vampire with a gift so strong and substantial that she is invited to partake in a test for a place in the Grand High Master Vampire’s private army. She finds that not only has the army never included a woman, but it has never included a Sventé vampire; a breed that is regarded by the super strong Pagori breed and the hypnotically beautiful Keja breed to be too tame and human-like. Most refuse to take her seriously, especially a Pagori commander named Jared who she craves in spite of herself.
The Grand High Master, however, sees her potential and offers her the position of Jared’s co-commander to help train the newest squad in time for the impending attack on his home. Sam has to demonstrate to Jared and the squad of chauvinists why it is incredibly foolish to underestimate a wilful, temperamental, borderline-homicidal Sventé female.
Warning: This novel contains an iron-willed female vampire with an energy whip, a sexist male vampire who is determined to have her, explicit vampy sex, and a romance story with real bite.
Here Be Sexist Vampires is book #1 in the Deep In Your Veins series by Suzanne Wright.
This is a re-read for me. I read it back in 2013 and I don’t think I did a review for it… at least not on this newer blog anyway. I finished with Suzanne Wright’s werewolf series The Phoenix Pack and the new Mercury Pack and when I went to buy her other books I didn’t realize that I already had the Deep In Your Veins series as well. Upon further investigation I remembered this first book and then got sidetracked and completely forgot to go back and finish the series. So, I re-read this one to refresh my memory and am starting book 2 now as well.
It’s not like this book isn’t good with Wright’s ever present humourous dialogue and fantastic characters, it’s more like I strayed away from vampires for awhile and focused more on the werewolfy books. So when I went back and re-read this one I enjoyed it very much. I particularly loved the main character Sam! She is an awesome heroin!
The other thing I enjoyed was that there isn’t the normal done-to-death vampire characteristics. This series shows actually three different types of vampires with three types of characteristics mixed in with some individual magical powers for each character. It’s pretty unique and interesting to read. I really liked it!
There are some really amazing characters in this book. Not just the two main characters but I found myself really interested in a lot of the background characters too. Not so background I guess.
Unlike her other series, the first three books in this one is about Sam and Jared and then another couple of books are about other characters. So Sam and Jared’s story cannot be told in one book and I’m glad, because at the end of this book I wanted more… and now I’m getting what I want.
In A Nutshell:
I very much love Suzanne Wright’s writing and I’m so mad at myself for letting this series slip by me like that. I’m not sure what side-tracked me, but I’ll be sure to not let it happen again.
