My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book! My favorite yet in this series. I loved how I was pulled in to this story right from the beginning and kept me turning pages until the end. The characters took me on a journey that was full of action and twist and turns that left me sitting on the edge of my seat. I loved Jonathan’s character. He wakes up a vampire, something that he has hated and hunted but now he is one of them. Now he tries to make a difference but how big of a difference will he make? A must read!

4 out of 5 Stars

Blaze Knight, what a freaking cool name. If I ever had the desire to change my name, I would want to pick something like like. It just screams, I am a HardA**. Blaze is this books main character, and he is one B.A. He was maimed and tortured by vampires and his mission is to protect what is left of humanity. Not feeling very human himself, Blaze ventures out into the desolate waste ground of America….also known as the Bronx. When the demons from his past come raging back, he is determined to get an eye for an eye and have his revenge.

He meets and joins up with Valerie Medeiros, an NYPD detective who has demons of her own, be they more mental than actual demons. These two perfectly tormented people are drawn together like the opposite points of a magnet. Val tries her hardest to ressit and with the bloodshed that is happening around them, she really should be focusing on staying alive, but when outside forces are pushing her and Blaze together…who is she to deny that?

I loved this book. I tossed with giving it 5 stars, but I felt that it was a bit to fast paced for me. I had to go back and reread few passages and the relationship between Valerie and Blaze was not moving as fast and I would have liked, but that is my personal opinion, that, and I am also highly impatient.

“Fifty-three years ago, a vampire took the podium at a G20 summit in London and decided to show the world exactly how real he was. Needless to say, no one human came out of that building alive. Since the Insurgency, the entire United States’ justice system restructured itself to target monsters. Both Valerie and Deron had undergone intensive training to combat vampires. To fight like them, hunt like them and think like them in order to take them down. Although the NYPD did more than their share of wiping the scum off the face of the earth, it seemed like the vampires’ numbers only doubled. With every leech they took out, two more appeared in its place.
But Valerie and Deron kept on going, kept chugging through the endless days and nights. Giving up wasn’t an option for either one of them.”

Releasing the Demons is the first book in The Order of the Senary series by L.D Rose. This was the authors debut novel, although she has since written more books. It is a wonderfully original paranormal romance that is a little bit like a cross between X-Men, Buffy, and Blade. There is plenty of action, violence danger and adventure as the story unfolds. This was a great story- well written with a multi-layered plot that kept me engrossed the whole time. The hidden agendas and sinister forces added an extra element of tension and intrigue- while the vampire/human conflict gave the whole book a slight dystopian feel for me (in a good way).
Blaze Knight is a genetically engineered mercenary with paranormal abilities- a hybrid who is on a mission to eradicate vampires and protect the human population. He is tormented by his memories of torture and unimaginable horror at the hands of his vampire captors 5 years earlier- as he endured 7 months of hell, wishing for oblivion, before finally being rescued. Now he wreaks his revenge while still trying to put what happened behind him. Circumstances occur that thrust him in the life of a feisty NYPD detective, and his world is tipped on its axis.
Valerie Medeiros is a highly trained Detective, who along with her partner, works to keep the vampires from decimating the humans in the city. The human crime rate was non-existent, but the same can’t be said for the vampires. She lost her sister in the most gruesome way and that fuels her quest against the vampires. When bodies begin to stack up, and things take a perplexing turn, Blaze enters the scene, and danger ramps up that will threaten everything.
Blaze is one of 6 brothers who all have unique abilities. But, what happens when the hunters become the hunted? Will Blaze and Valerie make it through, or will the sinister forces win out in the end?
An original take on the Vampire genre! I look forward to reading the rest of the series!

Thank you, Ms. Rose!

Releasing The Demons (Order of the Senary) by LD Rose is a great example of a dystopian fantasy book.
Blaze and Valerie should be the last thing each of them wants. Blaze because of his past and the scars it has left him with. Valerie because the death of her sister and the mission it provides her. However these are also the very reasons why they need each other.
The same thing has destroyed their lives – vampires. Vampires if responsible for causing each of them pain. Responsible for tearing them apart. And with one of them determined to hunt down Blaze, the two of them need to work together to put an end to their nightmares.
But can each of them overcome what has happened? Can Valerie get over her distaste for the supernatural? Can Blaze overcome his trusts issues after the torture he has suffered. It might be the only chance for them both to move on.

This is the first book I have read by this author but it certainly won’t be the last. The book had me hooked right from the word go. I was so intrigued by Blaze and everything that had happened to him. And for him to be pursued yet again by his tormentors, I just couldn’t wait to see what would happen. And Valerie was the perfect fit with his character. Everything about them worked so well. I loved the authors writing style, the way the words completely painted the picture in my mind of what was happening. This was a great way to discover a new author and I am excited to read more.
