Sarah Brookes' Rebirth Series returns with book 2, BLOOD FEVER. Parts of this unique story feel hauntingly familiar as the reader realizes that much of this story occurs simultaneously with the events of book 1, Flash of Dark. Many of the events that seemed important but weren't fully explained become clear in this almost alternate view of events. Again, Ms Brookes draws the reader into her uniquely crafted world where vampires, humans and the Fae collide. BLOOD FEVER lifts the veil on the eagerly awaited story of the Tuatha de Danann High King, Quinn and the woman he has never forgotten, Evande.
Evande Austin, Vampire Elder, has been hiding in plain sight for centuries. Denying her nature, running from her past, until one night Evande makes a spontaneous decision to save a man dying from a vicious vampire attack in a New York City alley. Logan Hughes' rebirth as a vampire, a definitive crime in her world, sends Evande and her new creation back into the life of Quinn O'Brien.
Quinn hasn't seen his former love for fifty years, not since she abruptly left his ranch and failed to return. Together, the three must navigate the secrets and deceptions Evande has had to maintain to keep her friends safe and her heart safer. Only love that transcends time can save Evande from her past when it comes back for revenge, but will she have to forsake a new love to maintain an old one?
Creating strong-willed women who revel in their power is what Sara Brookes does well. Evande, her business partner Callista, Ana and even the human Gina - all wear their mantels of power and intelligence in enviable fashion. BLOOD FEVER continues the delve into the darkness within and this makes for some sizzling sexual exploration. Quinn and Logan vie for dominance in an age-old struggle but their desires for Evande do not cloud the storyline.
BLOOD FEVER is a well-written, well-edited darkly sexy paranormal treat. The action is solid, the sexual tension palpable throughout. The world building that can be frustrating in a series debut fleshes out nicely in this second round. Firmly caught in this writer's web, this reader cannot wait for Callista's story to be told!

BLOOD FEVER, the second book in Sara Brookes' Rebirth series, continues with more twists in a wildly magical world. Just like the first book, it is sure to capture readers' attention. Immediately jumping into the adventure, the story goes full throttle from page one—readers will not be able to put it down. Focusing on Evande, a female vampire who walked out on her lover, Quinn, years ago but now turns up needing his help, this book includes mystery, fantasy, and romance.
The story is told from the heroine Evande's perspective. Evande once ran from her lover, Quinn, believing that he expected more from her than she was willing to give and fearing the intensity of her feelings for him. Quinn wanted Evande to be true to her vampire nature by drinking human blood to sustain her life or allow him to convert her to a human but Evande refused. An independent woman, Evande would not be swayed and instead, true to her propensity to run, she left Quinn.
Quinn, as an exiled fae king, lives as a human though he is all-powerful and would've done anything for Evande. Now he gets his chance when Evande finds herself in trouble with no one to turn to but Quinn. Having broken the laws of the vampire Elders and re-birthed a vampire, she's on the run for her life, and she and Logan, her newborn vampire, head for Quinn's ranch. In the midst of her trouble, Evande now also needs to deal with the reasons she left Quinn in the first place. Seeing Quinn again reminds her that she has never really gotten over him and now she's beginning to have feelings for Logan as well.
The three main characters are well developed. While I struggled with liking Evande, I thought both Quinn and Logan were great. Both had redeeming qualities and I fluctuated in my opinion of which one was best for Evande. Though I loved loved loved that both men had the same goal of keeping Evande safe and neither man was willing to give her up. Through description and realistic dialogue, their love was reflected in their actions as their chemistry burst from the pages. The sexually charged moments with Logan and the emotionally packed moments with Quinn raised the sexual tension to a breaking point while all three were at the ranch.
BLOOD FEVER is another good book in the series. Readers run along with Evande on her action-filled adventure that leads to an unexpected ending. Fans of paranormal romance and urban fantasy will enjoy this book but... read the first book in the series first to get a background.
