The Whitcombe Legacy: Triplet brothers were initiated into the vampiric life one hundred and twenty-five years go. Now they will either fulfill their family legacy and save the world from evil . . . or forfeit their chance to ever become human again.
Jonah Whitcombe enjoys a satisfying life in a remote Washington state community. An accomplished musician, Jonah’s lifelong dream is to play the piano at Carnegie Hall. But fate has another thing in store for him . . .
When the earthquake in San Francisco interrupts Jonah’s blood-substitute delivery, his supply is delivered by Angela Martin, the woman destined to be his lifelong mate. But before the two can plan a future together, all hell breaks loose.
Mt. St. Helens is about to erupt, Angela is abducted, the vampire leader Zurik has been spotted in the area, and the ritual—that will grant the brothers power to rid the world of the evil vampires forever—must soon be held in New Orleans. On top of it all, Jonah learns his audition at Carnegie Hall is just days away.
Will Jonah be able to fulfill his family legacy, save the woman he loves and fulfill his lifelong dream?
Read on for my thoughts on The Vampire Jonah. No true spoilers, promise.
Jonah had gone his one hundred and twenty some years as a vampire without running into his mate. Some might say bad timing, truth is more like she hadn’t been born yet. Now here she was, the lovely Angela in the flesh and at the worst possible time in Jonah’s history for her to arrive. Yes she brought his life sustaining artificial blood supply to him when nature (or something more sinister) had blocked most ground transportation with that earthquake. And yes, she knew what she was delivering so she knew what Jonah was – yet, he had so much on his plate right now, he wasn’t counting on the attraction to this human or the deep felt knowledge that this woman was the one he’d waited a long lifetime to find.
All hell was about to break loose. Jonah had battles to fight, evil to defeat and a ritual that along with his brothers had to be completed. Personal dreams picked a really bad time to come true. If they survived, when they survived those dreams could be fulfilled – for now he had a love to save and a legacy to complete.
The Vampire Jonah brings the Witcombe Legacy to a satisfying close. I enjoyed Jonah and Angela’s story very much. If I wanted a little more of some things – that is on me, not the author. Ann B. Morris told a wonderful tale of three vampire brothers that captivated, entertained and delighted me. And in the end, what more can I honestly ask for. I’m looking forward to what she brings to us next.
If you are a paranormal lover, if the fight between good and evil is your preferred reading material then The Vampire Jonah is perfect for you. While I believe anyone can enjoy these stories separately, I would have to suggest to read them in order because in some ways each book builds on the previous stories. I would happily recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys paranormal romance or any kind of romance novel.
