Book blurb: The Slayer

The Slayer (The Legend Chronicles, #2)The Slayer by Theresa Meyers
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

An adventurous romp that starts in Bodie, CA, crosses the continent, the Atlantic, and Europe. A reluctant "Slayer" of supernatural threats must team up with a beautiful member of Vampire nobility to deal with a threat to both humanity and Vampires alike.

I'm not a big romance novel fan, but this kept me engaged because I wanted to find out how they were going to solve a variety of problems. Lots of smouldering looks between the principals. Cool weapons and gadgets and vehicles. Some decent suspense, especially in the last third of the book when the poop really starts to hit the fan. Don't go in expecting Jane Austen with gadgets or Jules Verne with women. Do go in expecting a nice, light supernatural Romance.

Noteworthy: a strong female character who isn't a Harpy with multiple personality disorder!
