I freaking loved this book! Like devoured it in just a few hours loved this book! So much is going on in this book that I need to take deeps breathes in order to slow down and tell you whats going on in my head!*Takes deep breathe* Okay the plot line is dynamic. So much from the very first page to the last page, I ate it up. With every turn of the page, new things unfolded, war is started and then BAM! ending! I think I read this book so fast that I didn't even realize I was at the end till the end and then I was just angry. I mean, I wanted more!The characters left me very happy. The authors did a great job on the progressing growth of the characters and the way it flowed. I loved that the authors hooked the reader and kept the reader entertain till the very end. I felt that the book not only gave the reader everything they wanted but also gave the reader the feeling of satisfaction. Questions from the first book were answered. I like how the authors left you hanging at the end. I don't like cliffies but this one left me squealing!!If you have not pick up Vampire Empire, you must! It is a great steam punk read that I can never get enough of. Action filled with a great romance, The Rift Walker is a book you must read now!
