A first-rate, sometimes gloomy paranormal romance with exceptional and dynamic characters, Nightstalker by Rebecca Rock is intense and filled with action. It follows the life of a vampire huntress, Angelina, a hybrid creature, half-vampire and half-Landian, who is raised by a vampire ex-priest, Brendan, and trained by the Church to hunt rogue vampires. With her partner, Tanner, she has succeeded in killing many rogue vampires. But her worst enemy is Rogan, the man who turned Brendan, her father and former priest, into a vampire and forced him to raise her. A golden opportunity presents itself for her to take down the scoundrel, but as she takes risks with her partner and a werewolf friend to face this inevitable moment, is she aware of what awaits them?

I enjoyed the strong female protagonist, a character that is hard to ignore; Angelina. She is written with sufficient backstory to make her likeable. The setting is on another planet and the author does an impeccable job in creating a culture that doesn’t come across to readers as strange—it feels like the street next door, in fact. The conflict is phenomenal and it propels the story forward in fascinating ways. Readers encounter different groups of people living in the cities and the Church seems to have a strong influence, regulating the powers of vampires. The relationship between Tanner and Angelina is beautiful and the author gives hints of Tanner’s affection for her. The suspense grows as the reader wants to see what happens. I also enjoyed the suspense that develops around Rogan, a character that creates fear and leaves misery in his wake. Nightstalker is deftly plotted and written to a satisfying conclusion.
