This is the third book in The Dark Ink Chronicles. In this book Riley is starting to feel changes from being bitten by two Strigoi vamps, Victorian and Valerian. She tries to stay strong but there is a darkness inside of her that is growing and slowly starting to take over. Eli, her vamp boyfriend is starting to notice the changes in her and is worried. He constantly stays by her side watching and it's driving Riley crazy. Victorian, who still talks to Riley in her head, is feeling the darkness in her growing as well and he knows how to stop it. Riley blows him off and tries to act like it's not bad, that she can handle it until she wakes up, not remembering anyone and almost kills her friend Nyx. Victorian, Eli and others take a crazed Riley to Romania where Victorians Father lives, he is there only hope for helping Riley. While their away Valerian's newlings are growing in number and reeking havoc on Savannah.
I'm a huge fan of The Dark Ink Chronicles and couldn't wait to read Eventide. I wasn't disappointing, this series is full of action. I love Riley's character and the relationship between her and Eli as well as Victorian. In this book we learn a lot more about Victorian, how much his love for Riley has grown and how much he want to save her. I'm starting to really gravitate to him. There's also new character's introduced and new "beings". This is not the end of the series even though it kind of gives you the feeling it is by the way the book ends. Book four is called Black Fallen and here's a teaser from Elle Jaspers website.
"There’s only one thing more lethal than a vampire.
A Black Fallen. Rather, a fallen angel engulfed in the blackest of magic.
And three of the most dangerous have descended upon Edinburgh…
Tattoo artist, RILEY POE, has changed. After surviving the bites of three potent Strigoi, she has acquired traits from each that parallel those of the most lethal of vampires. Her strength, speed, hearing are unmatched. She’s a stick of dynamite, fuse lit. She’s about to put those unique powers to good use. And she’ll need them.
Now that the rogue bloodsuckers plaguing the Lowcountry are under control once more, and Riley, along with her guardian vampire, ELI DUPRE, Riley’s brother, SETH POE, and Eli’s brother, PHIN DUPRE, and Strigoi vampire VICTORIAN ARCOS agree to join JAKE ANDORRA’S elite WUP team. Worldwide Unexplained Phenomenon takes cases too powerful and dangerous for mere humans to handle. Comprised of vampires, humans with tendencies, immortal druids, werewolves and witches, there aren’t many situations the WUP members can’t handle. But there are unholy, lethal disturbances in the ancient city of Edinburgh, Scotland, and Riley and the others accept the mission."
