This is the last book in this Vampire Series. It is also the fifth book. It would be beneficial to read them in order as there is not much context in this book, for the previous installments. I typically do not choose paranormal or vampire books to read, but I decided to give this series a shot! The artwork on the cover immediately drew me in. Plus a rockstar female leads the show.

Rowena continues her badass actions in essentially deciding the fate of the empire. I was greatly impressed with this author’s ability to continue on with so much excitement in this series. Unexpected twist at the end, and so much sadness knowing this was the true end of this series.

If you like danger, excitement, and things a little weird – this series will keep you busy for a while!

This Night Has Ended: A Dark Supernatural Fantasy (Vampire State #5) by Alexander Charalambides

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. This is also the first book I’ve read in the Vampire State Series. This Night Has Ended is the fifth book in the Vampire State Series. This book will have you hanging on to every word.

Rowena is a human who is turning into a vampire thanks to her boyfriend. Rowena stands up for humans and others don’t like that. Now they’re in danger and she wants to protect them. The quote I chose for Rowena is: “Shut up, let’s go up to my office, people are less likely to see us and we can watch the street for Quintus.”

Vincenzo is a vampire and is sticking by Rowena’s side. He is helping her with what she wants to do. The studio is somewhere they can stay safe while they figure out their next move. The quote I chose for Vincenzo is: “We’re mapping the city, assigning scarcity and danger levels based on first hand reports, telling people where to stay away from or go to, that kind of thing, take this, find them on the map, red pin for dangerous, green pin for safe, black pin for places we still aren’t sure about.”

Highly recommended for Dystopian Romance lovers.

This book had my attention from the start. I honestly say that I am not normally into Vampire Books but this one has me on my toes. I really wish that I could have read Book 1 first, but alas I started on book 5 again. Either way, I will be reading and getting caught with the other books from this series. I feel like I could relate to Rowena more than anything, but I also understand Vincenzo’s character as well and can relate to him as well.

So I am starting this series a bit lost because I am starting at book 5. This was truly a great story and a fun read, but I need the back story as well. The concept of vampires and humans is quite common but this story takes it to a fun and new level.
Rowena is an amazing character who I found to be a bit complex but she really sticks with you. The story as a whole has danger, romance, action, twists and turns, and a plot that kept you going until the end. I will for surely be going back to book 1, but I still recommend book 5 as well.

This story picks up and runs full throttle. There is so much going on. The characters have been constantly evolving and they are just trying to do what is right for everyone. At its base, this is a story about social injustice set in a dystopian setting. Really, you have two different things going on at the same time — trying to survive in what this world has become, and trying to get everyone to live together peacefully, while getting the word out as to what is really happening. Then there is the evolution of Rowena herself. There is so much build up as to what will happen on all of these accounts. There are many surprises along the way, too. I never saw what was coming next and could not put the book down.

The previous books should be read first since there really is no back story given to lead us into the current book. But the story is quite interesting and the characters are unique and complex. You should try this series.

So at first I couldn’t get into it because I hadn’t read other books but then I finally caught on. Rowena treats everybody equally regardless of species human or vampire or other being. Rowena and Vincenzo have a deep relationship even though Luka is in love with her. Rowena ends up heartbroken because of Luka’s incident with Vincenzo. I would love to say what comes next for Rowena.

A paranormal series that will turn upside down whatever ideas you had about vampires. It’s a page turner for sure! Great world building and great characters that you grow to love. One of the things I really loved about this story was the originality. Yes, give us a different spin we haven’t read before. Please keep writing great stories like this one!

The Night Has Ended is Book 5 in the Vampire State Series. Rowena’s fate is hanging in the balance as she struggles to keep a dark secret to herself. She finds herself often doubled over in pain and battling frequent seizures as her transformation continues. Rowena cannot let the pain slow her down because the Empire is in chaos and the fate of the human population of Sanguinia is precarious at best. Sanguinia is in desperate need of a new Emperor and Rowena has a plan, but will anyone listen to her or go along with her plan?

The story was well written, the characters were relatable and the world of Sanguinia was described so vividly that I felt as though I was there. I loved the character of Rowena and found her strength and courage in the pursuit of her plan to be admirable. She never allowed anyone or anything to get in her way or stop her from pursuing her plan. I found the character of Vincenzo to be smart, determined and it was obvious that he loved Rowena and would do anything for her. Luka was a character that you love to hate. He is bloodthirsty and angry at the world for how his life has turned out. Luka chooses to lash out at everyone and is determined to kill anyone he feels is responsible for his bad fortune. Although you can understand his pain and empathize with him, his behavior as a result seems unforgivable. This story put a new spin on the battle between vampires and humans. It is full of action, danger, politics, violence, suspense, and secrets. It leads to a conclusion that takes a twist the reader does not see coming. This book is a must read for anyone that loves a good vampire story!

In this last installment of the Vampire State series Rowena continues to go through her transformation. Her body is wracked with pain, betraying her at every turn, and her humanity is teetering on an edge, all the while the empire is ripe with discontent and malice. Rowena’s fate and the fate of all of Sanguinia’s human population rests on one crucial election, it is Rowena’s final test.
This was a beautifully written end of the series and I can not wait to binge read the rest of the books! Alexander Charalambides brings a wonderfully creative new take on the Paranormal/Vampire story with a unique portrayal of vampires and their politics. It was engaging and powerful with dynamic characters like Rowena and Vincenzo who you can’t help but like. This book had me reading as fast as I could just to find out what would happen to them. The detail he put into this series gives it a sense of realism that anyone at any age can enjoy. This series has everything you could ever want with vampires, action, danger, and politics. Definitely worth it!!!

This is the fifth and final book in this series and I’m sad it has to come to an end. I found this story to be original which made it that much more exciting to read. This story is full of danger, vampires, twists and turns, politics, and great characters. Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down, I kept turning the pages needing to know what was going to happen next. This book took me on an unexpected journey. The author did an exceptional job writing a great series and keeping me on the edge of my seat. Rowena has been through so much but she stays strong throughout. I can’t wait to read what the author gives us next. I recommend this book.
