Book Review: The Vampire's Hourglass by Shayne Leighton

The Vampire's Hourglass (Of Light and Darkness #3) by Shayne Leighton
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published:  October 28, 2014
Publisher: Decadent Publishing 

After narrowly surviving a near-death experience in an effort to save Valek from yet another showdown with Aiden, Charlotte awakens inside the forsaken, crumbling walls of the Regime Palace. Though she finds herself surrounded by her closest friends, she is conflicted by her feelings of the sudden absence of her Vampire guardian.

With Nikolai to console her, Charlotte cannot shake the undeniable chemistry she feels for this familiar stranger. But they are running out of time.

Charlotte’s peculiar ailment will return, and she will die.

Charlotte, Nikolai, Sarah, and several others travel to the underbelly of Prague to search for Valek. But what they discover are the dark secrets the elder Vampires have been hiding for centuries. Charlotte must overcome her mortal limitations to win back the heart of the one she truly loves and escape the gates of Abelim with her throat intact in this enthralling, highly anticipated third installment of the Of Light and Darkness Series.

The Vampire's Hourglass is the third book in the Of Light and Darkness series by Shayne Leighton. Nothing is easy for the characters in this series. They are always in a fight for their lives, and if they survive, tomorrow will be another fight. This almost constant action kept me glued to the pages. Add in the chemistry between Charlotte, Valek, and Nikolai, and I may as well have holed up in a cave until this book was read. So, my loyalties were leaning towards Nikolai after finishing book two. Don't get me wrong. Valek is swoon-worthy in his own right, and I completely understand his vampire instincts override his conscious thoughts and actions at times, but he does something this time that has pretty much tipped my favor completely in Nikolai's direction. If I were Charlotte, that would be it for me. Helloooo Nikolai. Of course, it's never that easy, because now Nikolai has issues of his own that effect everything, but I'm holding out hope. This was my favorite book in the series so far. I'm ready for more!

Shayne's first year out of high school (after meeting mentor, friend, and executive producer, Marcie Gorman), she penned, co-directed, and starred in the feature-length film, The Incubus a paranormal romance, which obtained distribution and opened in over fifteen theaters across South Florida among popular chains like Regal, AMC, and Cinemark. The Incubus has obtained a fan-base of over 60,000 girls online, and has garnered the attention of reporters from the Miami Herald, CBS News, and NPR Radio. Leighton also starred alongside Scream Queen, Tara Cardinal in the film, Legend of the Red Reaper. Now, 20-year-old Leighton is excited to release her debut young adult novel series, Of Light and Darkness, set in contemporary Prague as well as penning several other screenplays, a novel adaptation for Legend of the Red Reaper, an original pop/rock album, and acting in various film roles.
