Book Review! The Darkest Vampire Juliana Haygert

The Darkest Vampire (Rite World: Vampire Wars #1) Juliana Haygert
Genre: New Adult Fiction (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: October 8, 2021
Publisher: Self

Supernaturals around Portland are turning up dead. I’m next … if the vampire I just made a powerful bond with doesn’t kill me first.

Magic is in a short supply for a half-witch like me, which makes things very difficult when I’m bound by a blood promise to avenge my parents.

With no leads left to follow, I make a bargain with a demon for help. Bad decision. The quest the demon sends me on binds me to a vampire named Killian, a half-mad, half-naked monster who hates my guts almost as much as he longs to drink my blood.

Killian swore to kill all witches on sight, but we agree to work together to solve the murders ravaging the city. He despises me, and I can’t stand him… but there’s an unexpected connection between us, something I can’t help but be curious about.

No, I can’t let anything distract me. Not even a hot and enraging vampire who presses all of my freaking buttons. I’m determined to find my parents’ killers, and stop the chaos taking over the supernatural world.

If only love didn’t get in the way.

A delicious slow-burn enemies to lovers novel, The Darkest Vampire is a new adult urban fantasy that’s full of dark romance, adventure, and twists you won’t see coming. Fans of Linsey Hall, Leia Stone, and Jaymin Eve are going to become obsessed with this brand-new paranormal series by Juliana Haygert!

The Darkest Vampire is the first book in the Rite World: Vampire Wars series by Juliana Haygert. Lavinia is a half witch who's never had access to her powers, and there are supernaturals being killed left and right. Not a good time to be powerless. Killian is broody, but I like him. The romance is a slow burn. The attraction is there, but there is baggage that needs to be worked through. I'm on board for all of it.
One thing I found funny, was the references to how big cell phones were 20 years ago, and how most people didn't have them. Umm.. I don't know about that. I remember the ginormous cell phones of the 90's, but 20 years back from when this book was published would have been 2001. I'd had a cell phone for at least three years at that point, and it was significantly smaller than the giant ones referenced in this book. My friends and family all had phones too, and I live in po-dunk Tennessee. So, I think the timing on that was a little off, but it didn't bother the story in anyway. It just made me think back and giggle a little whenever I saw the references. It was the time of "Free nights and weekends!" When 8pm rolled around, it was on! Remember those days? haha! 
This was a fantastic start to a new series, and it takes place in the same world as The Rite of the Vampire Trilogy, so it's going to link up with some of the characters we got to know there, and I'm pretty darn excited about it.

While USA Today Bestselling Author Juliana Haygert dreams of being Wonder Woman, Buffy, or a blood elf shadow priest, she settles for the less exciting—but equally gratifying—life of a wife, mother, and author. Thousands of miles away from her former home in Brazil, she now resides in North Carolina and spends her days writing about kick-ass heroines and the heroes who drive them crazy.
