*Received from author in exchange for an honest review
Amaliya Vezorak never believed in happy endings…

When Amaliya harnessed her necromancer powers to defeat her greatest enemy, she believed she had finally found a happy ending with Cian, her lover and the master of Austin. That happiness is short-lived when the vampire ruling over San Antonio attempts a takeover of Austin in order to capture Amaliya and use her power for his own devices.
To make matters worse, Samantha, Cian’s ex-fiancée, is seeing ghosts, the untested vampire hunters of Austin are running scared as a supernatural war looms, a mysterious man is hunting Amaliya with the help of her one time lover, Pete, and Rachoń, the Summoner’s favorite progeny, appears to be out for revenge.
When Amaliya’s grandmother, a powerful medium, experiences terrible visions that reveal there is another necromancer vampire and she is crying out for help, Amaliya realizes happy endings do not come easily.

Pretty When She Dies: A Vampire Novel (Unabridged) - Rhiannon Frater


 Check out the rest of the tour HERE

Another hit out of the ballpark! Miss Frater has a home run in this series!

Amalyia journey continues, but this time she is a little more confident and she has more power!

In the latest installment of The Pretty When She Dies series, -In Pretty When She Kills we are left with a feeling of excitement and awe! I mean really Miss Frater takes her series up, not just a few notches, but all the way up the ladder to the top!

In this book we are introduced to so much more. More creatures, were coyotes, witches, more heat between her and Cian. More adventure, fights, kills, a roller coaster of emotions and a fantastic ending.  Amalyia is faced with the aspect of a  huge paranormal war  she is being hunted by a mysterious man and the progeny of the Summoner, and now her grandmother is having horrifying visions of another necromancer vampire. Can Amalyia and her "new" vampire family save the Austin vampire group before they are overtaken? Now, that secondary players have reached a pinnacle in this book. We see them take center stage and I felt they worked well as a group, coming together for the same outcome.

I love the way Miss Frater has the ability to write characters whom are less than stellar, but still make them shine, and no matter how much you dislike the enemy, you will still have a slight feelings toward their outcome, screwed up, right! That's what she manages to do. I've read about six books of Miss Frater's so far and have yet to find one that I dislike. Pretty amazing if you ask me, since your talking to a non-horror reader. She makes it easy to read and the horror actually takes a backseat, to the amazing stories that are always fill with heart with strong character leads. She doesn't dwell on the horror aspects, she just puts it out there and you will find yourself loving everything she writes!
