Review Ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Õ Susan Krinard Chasing Midnight Summary Å 6 Susan Krinard Õ 6 Free read There are far worse evils than jazz and lipstick By day Allegra Chase lives among the artists and eccentrics of 1920s Greenwich Village in search of adventure By night she haunts the city's back alleys and seedy speakeasies driven by a primal hunger Here amid the glitz and unrestrai. SynopsisAllegra Chase was turned into a vampire by her father s close friend It was her only chance to live to the full and have some fun As a teenager she fell ill something sounding like a progressive muscular dystrophy and abandoned by her posh friends boyfriend and even her mother she was left to wait for her death in an empty house with only one servant Small wonder that being given the second chance she took it without regrets and never looked back Small wonder she doesn t want to swear allegiance to anybody be it a vampire a human or a werewolf even if it means she is an oddball in New York considered a traitor or a dissenter Who cares when you can hound Greenwich Village with your bohemian friends in tow having the time of your lifeGriffin Durant s parents and siblings a whole family of werewolves were killed by a fire when he was just 14 He was able to save only his little sister Gemma Then he was drafted and the First World War left his psyche horribly scarred even though he survived Now Griffin a wealthy bachelor living in Long Island NY wants nothing than forgetting who and what he is He steers clear from the local pack or in fact any supernatural creatures and tries to find his sister a nice respectable human husband However a teenage girl during roaring twenties is able to stir trouble as efficiently as her contemporary peers Gemma clearly doesn t share the outlook of her conservative older brother Allegra and Griffin meet and have to cooperate because their friends get into serious trouble Soon enough it becomes obvious that the disappearance of Margot De Luca a friend of Allegra and a daughter of a local mafia boss and Malcolm Owen a poor playwright and her beloved is a part of a larger scheme of a truly sinister character What will take to discover who really stands behind it What I likedAt first I thought it was just another vampire novel with a kick ass heroine but set at the beginning of the 20th century that s why the subtitle After all vampire fiction is as common as muck nowadays This one was a bit different thoughMaybe it was because of the period Roaring Twenties in the USA but not only of course were the era of jazz prohibition and mafia the time of flappers a new breed of young Western women who wore short skirts excessive makeup bobbed their hair listened to jazz drove automobiles imagine that smoked had casual sex and generally flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior Allegra is such a flapper even if for slightly different reasons she finds it an excellent way to express her love for freedom Yes she freuents speakeasies establishments that illegally sells alcoholic beverages has a bunch of bohemian human friends and seduces men but only in order to drink their blood This novel proves that a vampiress doesn t have to wear black leather wield a catana or another sharp weapon to be considered a kick ass heroine The strength of Allegra lies in her psychological make up she can think and she uses her brain she is altruistic up to a point she knows what she wants and she doesn t hesitate to get it Overall the vampires and werewolves of New York fit that period perfectly bootlegging fighting among themselves for supremacy not unlike in any good mafia and dreaming about the ultimate supremacy Psychological veracity was another feature I really appreciated Allegra and Griffin are dynamic characters They fall in love almost at first sight but it takes them very long to overcome their own limitations and prejudices Griffin is shocked by Allegra s free manners and independence not to mention the fact that werewolves despise vampires Allegra cannot believe Griffin wants to suppress his natural instincts of a predator and expects the same from his sister It takes them long to see that they are really very much alike even longer to trust each other at all They don t jump to bed instantly their relationship rings true and is a pleasure to follow in my opinion it was a real highlight of the story I liked little Gemma and her clumsy attempts to imitate Allegra as well it was a good move to make her play a bigger role than that of a supporting damsel in distressThe world building was ok perhaps not very original or especially prominent but still interesting enough to add to the storyWhat I didn t likeI admit the plot had its weaknesses especially at the end In my opinion everything is resolved far too slickly during one bloody showdown then main leads and their friends get their orange blossom scented HEA bad people kill each other summertime and the livin is easyat least in Long IslandI was especially surprised when the elders of the pack who had an excellent opportunity to fleece poor Griffin willingly reduced their claim by half becausethey feared too much money might have a degenerative effect on the werewolves Excuse me You are a bunch of brutal mafiosos and all of a sudden there are no greedy people among you Have you had an epiphany of a sort It would be far better if Griffin a rich clever businessman after all found a legal loophole or drove a really hard bargain and snatched a part of his money back But he poor puppy was too busy being in love or saving his beloved Allegra and the pack had to take pity on hima bit too good to be true don t you think Especially that he and the pack were hardly on friendly termsI am also not a fan of the cover art Seriously the book is about Roaring Twenties and instead of flappers dancing charleston or mafia boys shooting each other they put just a blue face with amber eyes with a were in the backgroundI would never pick it up just because of the coverFinal verdictIt was a really nice surprise I liked this book much better than I thought I would It was far intelligent than your ordinary vampires and werewolves story I recommend it to people who like their paranormal romance with some historical flavour a nice backstory and a HEA guaranteed BTW there are two books of this series but it seems each of them features a different set of characters so you can easily read them as stand alones Strong three stars
