Review: Vampires Not Invited by Cheyenne McCray

Vampires Not Invited 
Release Date: November 30, 2010
Publisher: St. Martins Paperback
ISBN: #  9780312532680
Genre: Urban Fantasy
New York Times bestselling author Cheyenne McCray sets the night on fire in her blazing-hot Night Tracker series—where the fangs come out when the sun goes down…
Vampire attacks are on the rise in the city that never sleeps. So why is half-human, half-Drow private eye Nyx tracking down Sprites? Sure, these “young bloods” are causing mischief all over town—like painting the Statue of Liberty’s toenails neon pink. But it’s not until Nyx finds herself at the Pit, Manhattan's hottest nightclub for paranorms, that she understands what she’s really up against…
Seems Master Vampire Volod has a plan—and the Sprites are in on it. By targeting the weaknesses of every paranorm in the city, from Elves to Shifters to Zombies, Volod and his fang gang aim to rule the night once and for all. Over Nyx’s dead body. She loves a good challenge—and she will seduce danger at every turn to throw Volod off course. It’s time for Nyx to enter the beating heart of this dark conspiracy…before driving a stake through it.

Nyx is back for a 3rd time in Vampires Not Invited. The Vampires of her world have decided they are sick and tired of being the underdogs so they decide to steal a list of all the paranorm's weaknesses with the help of the sprites. Nyx puts herself in a pretty bad spot and her friends and fellow trackers help her get out of it without hesitation. The book is FULL of action at every turn. I laughed a ton which is always nice while reading, I also cried a bit because I'm a sappy emotional reader. Nyx gets over some prejudiced that she has for other races as she makes new friends and allies and sees what she perceived as race/species wide behavior really was only what a select few were like in reality. On a scale of 1-10 the romance between Nyx and Adam is about a 2 but they are still going strong in their relationship. The ending kind of leaves you feeling like the storyline for this book will continue into the next. I look forward to what Nyx does next and how she takes what she learned in Vampires Not Invited to grow as a person and tracker. 

I gave 4/5 stars
