Jack Templar and the Lord of the Vampires (Book 3)Jack Templar and the Lord of the Vampires by Jeff Gunhus

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the third book in the series that I have read, and although it is book three, it honestly can be read as a standalone book. The author does an excellent job of introducing the characters and main premise behind the book. For all of that, the author is to be commended. I am also happy to report that there is no profanity nor intimate scenes. This makes it a perfect fit with its correct genre–young adult.

My only minor complaint with this book is that it seems that the violence level has stepped up a bit. Although it is never gory nor inappropriate for this age range, I just feel that this may be intended for high school rather than middle school. Then again, the characters are a bit older. I fully expected this to be the end of the series, but I discovered at the end that I was wrong!

For much of the book, I was not overly interested in the storyline. For some unknown reason, I struggled to connect with the book. But the last twenty or so pages drew me into the books like the previous two did. If you are a fan of young adult fantasy, this book is definitely for you!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
