Unmemorable

This is the third in the Immortal Rogues vampire series, although it isnít necessary to have read the other two books. In fact, it would perhaps be an advantage not to have read them as the two I have read now are very samey.

The queen of the vampires, Nefri, has divided up an important relic into three amulets, each of which has been given to a mortal woman to protect--and of course these women have their vampire guardians to look after (and fall in love with) them.

What I have been unable to understand, plot-wise, is that after the first amulet is safely protected, what good are the next two if they will, together, not make the full Medallion? The author never mentions this, but I wasnít particularly worried about Amelia Hadwell, guardian of the third amulet. Even if this werenít fiction where goodies win, her one-third of the Medallion wouldnít do our baddie much good.

Perhaps the author thought a bit about this as we actually meet a new, badder baddie in this book and thereís even another medallion to liven things up--and they needed livening up, as this is a very pedestrian book. Our hero, Sebastian St Ives, is a bookworm vampire who prefers studying philosophy in his library to being vampiric. Amelia is a nice young woman looking after her brother who has learning difficulties and being dazzled by the first handsome man (or vampire) who has really paid her attention. Thereís not much more to the plot than that, and I found a distinct lack of characterization in the story.

At the end, everything is nicely wrapped up and we meet the heroes/heroines of the other books. It all feels a bit rushed, vague, short--the print is pretty large, perhaps to stretch it out to a 300-page book. Itís not something I will bother to read again, and I suspect I will have forgotten the story within a few days.
