    ARC Vigilante Vampire begins with Bo being extremely different in this one. She's a lot harder now, and she's under X's thumb. She knows that she and Michael have a lot to work through, but with X and the other Families in the way it keeps getting harder and harder to figure out which problem she should work on first. But when things start to go crazy for Bo, and X has her working on a crazy case things start to go out of control even more. Especially with X's threats hanging over her head even m ARC Vigilante Vampire begins with Bo being extremely different in this one. She's a lot harder now, and she's under X's thumb.

But when things start to go crazy for Bo, and X has her working on a crazy case things start to go out of control even more. Especially with X's threats hanging over her head even more. This one was really good. It starts out with us learning how much Bo has changed, and what she's going through right now. She's a lot different now, and she's not going to let people push her around, well maybe X, but she's working on get out from his thumb, although that may be easier said than done. But as she and her friends work together to figure out what the humans and vampires are going through things get a little out of hand. This book ends in a cliffhanger, but it has me super excited for the next book in this series. This one was great. I just wish there will be more Michael and Bo time, especially with all the new problems they have now!

    An action packed story. Why 3 stars bc it ended in an especially awful cliffhanger too many threads left unresolved. It felt like a "bridge" book simply bridging one book to the other in an effort to move the reader along the plot with the next book being this books goal. (Hope I explained that right) Cliterary genius a to z book challenge letter V

    I just finished the 5th book in the series, and as if I wasn't scratching to get to the next book already! I loved the premise of Michael and Bo swapping characteristics and softness for a more interesting character in Bo. I love that Helen Harper always foreshadows what is going to happen in her writing; It is perfectly subtle. I always have an inkling as to what is about to happen, but I'm still in complete awe when it actually happens!

I'm fairly certain I have read 14 of Helen Harper's books in about a month and a half, and with a toddler, you can bet how good those books must have been! I just can't stop!

    One of my favourite urban fantasy authors, Helen Harper continues to offer enthralling, creative, and smart mysteries. I enjoy reading bad-a$$ Bo and her take-charge attitude even when her life is full of challenges--becoming a vampire, 'employed' (aka threatened) by a kakos demon, her father in a coma, having left the New Order (triber detective agency), avoiding the loss of a friend, and her romance forcibly on hold, she still manages to stay independent, unaffected, and her witty dry humor as One of my favourite urban fantasy authors, Helen Harper continues to offer enthralling, creative, and smart mysteries. I enjoy reading bad-a$$ Bo and her take-charge attitude even when her life is full of challenges--becoming a vampire, 'employed' (aka threatened) by a kakos demon, her father in a coma, having left the New Order (triber detective agency), avoiding the loss of a friend, and her romance forcibly on hold, she still manages to stay independent, unaffected, and her witty dry humor as she helps others. A vigilante of the night--whether you want her 'helping' or not--with a strong attitude and with dry, witty comebacks that have a 'sharp bite' so to speak. The tension between Bo and the other characters are a large part of this one reminding us that Bo can be ruthless but underneath it she is still (barely) hanging onto her morals and humanity, with the plot remaining exciting though fairly even paced until that crazy, tortuous, suprising (and somewhat enraging) cliffhanger of an ending, for which I'm still somewhat upset with Ms Harper. The writing is a beautiful balance between vividly detailed and blase brush-offs that are quintessentially Bo (she only notes things she finds important, so those are the things we read about). There is a bit more romance in this one--thank goodness for more Michael--and more interaction with 'friends' that give a social warmth to uplift and offset all the cold death and horror Bo faces. Another great book that left me both in dire need for more while fearful of what next Bo will be put through!

    I liked the darker, grittier Bo. And I'm a big fan of Helen Harpers writing style and humor. She doesn't disappoint and delivers once again a tight, witty story. Vigilante Vampire is an absolute fun read. I think that everyone who loves the Chicagoland Vampire series will enjoy this book.

    Well this series started out good. Although there were a lot of parallels to the "highland magic" series which i read first. Female investigators like Veronica Mars in a magical world. A feisty young female character, who thinks she is the rescuer of the world. Sadly both were too Stubborn, too independent and lying constantly by omission or not so apparently good reasons. The author did not manage to write a constantly engaging story in both series. The concept wasn't bad and it is a good woven Well this series started out good.

The author did not manage to write a constantly engaging story in both series. The concept wasn't bad and it is a good woven net of cases and stories to solve with a strong backbone story to go along. But the humor for example fell flat and barely made me laugh in both books. The stories are both stretched out too long and i was left dissatisfied at the end with both books. A love story in the background, her being scared of getting hurt. And the romance drags along through the entire series before anything substantial happens if it happens at all, which lacked big time for me and felt like pulling a tooth. The first 2 books were a nice read, book 3 was at the limit of my patience, then it went fast forward into boring and annoying, i scrolled through book 4 and 5 only to not loose the hang of it and finally read book 6 fully again. The finale wasn't that bad, but i missed the love from the author. The ending was disappointing and uncaring.

    ''It's no more Miss Nice Vampire.'' This is the starting line of the book blurb here on Goodreads. I'm thinking whoever came up with that obviously never read the books, because Bo has never been particularly nice. This was pretty disappointing for me actually not least because character motivations, Bo's and X's especially are trite and ridiculous and unnecessarily over the top (for instance when Bo professes her love to Micheal (at the most inopportune, randomest time), who btw she's hardly ever ''It's no more Miss Nice Vampire.''

She only slept with him that one time and then spent any of the other five minutes she was around him being rude and fighting). Then that ending with the revenge aspect because of pettiness?Pettiness!?! Nope. Just No. Keep that nonsense. I'm currently reading the last book in this series hoping it gets better but I'm pretty cynical about it.

    So much happens in Vigilante Vampire. I could not wait to read this book after how Red Angel ended, and Harper did it again. She sure loves a cliffhanger. Good thing I don’t mind cliffhangers and that the last book is already released. Bo is the new Batman in town, working for her ‘benefactor’ she goes after those that the police miss.

Bo is definitely in a lot darker place than in previous books, there’s a lot more anger and guilt warring inside her, but at least she’s more accepting of her vampire needs. It feels as though everything comes to a culmination at the end of Vigilante Vampire. And if I thought everything changed for Bo in the last book, that’s nothing compared to how everything will change after the events in this book. Cannot wait to find out what happen for Bo Blackman and her friends in the final book.

    This is a gritty Bo Blackman, harder, more edgy than previous books. She is working for X, the Kakos Daemon, who has forbidden her to let anyone in on that secret. Micheal, head of the Montserrat Vampires, is worried about her, and wastes a good deal of his time trying to find her and make sure she is alright. We have humans, the "tree people", against vamps and missing people & missing vamps. Medici is blindly recruiting for his own ends and the other Families are trying to combat them.

We have a mysterious girl, Maria, who has some powers, but has escaped abuse and isn't talking much, now living with Bo. Definitely a horrible, horrible cliffhanger and I'm so glad I am behind with this series, as the last book is already out and I have it.

    Simply brilliant. OMG this book was brilliant, I will admit it was hard to see Bo becoming a vigilante after trying so hard to do everything in her power to do what was right and in the end getting stabbed in the back in the last book (Red Angel) but as time goes on, this book became better and better. I've loved every minute of it I cannot wait to get onto the next one. I just cannot believe the twist in the Tale towards the end, I was screaming.

    Disappointing entry to the series Bo Blackman has gone vigilante and for the first half of the book oscillates between annoying and teenager level of stropping. There’s a half hearted ‘mystery’ to solve that ends on a cliff hanger. The book feels incomplete and shows up Ms Harper’s weaknesses as an author. When one is forced to not care for the main protagonist then you better hope there’s enough good will in the supporting cast but they were all cut off through other machinations.

    Well - I am currently listening to these books - not reading them. I really enjoy the narrator, she has narrated all Helen Harpers books. She has the most amazing range of British dialects. I am not sure I would enjoy them just as much reading on my own. The men in her books should be stronger and more persistent and the women should be a bit less standoffish- it quickly becomes old when they keep their love interests at arms length for the most time.

First off I'm glad that this was not the last book in the series because if not that would have been a very messed up ending to this series. I'm glad that Michael survived the explosions despite the Kakos daemon massive betrayal and the fact that he is now a human again. I don't know if Matt, Beth, and Nell survived the explosions as well. I'm hoping they did but we won't know until I read book six and find out how many survivors there were from each house.

    Huh... What a way to end it? I'm like gaping at my kindle right now. But at least Michael survived! Now we just have to find a way to make them pay and boom! Bo Blackman is going to save the day once more.

    We all need a little humanity! In this book, Bo faces the challenges of renewing old bonds and accepting that one person, however strong, cannot do everything, She digs deep to find her humanity and ends up facing X’s punishment.

    I enjoyed this one more than the last entry. However, Bo is mean, cruel, and unlikable throughout much of the book. Some actions by her and others make no sense. The ending still has plenty of loss, which will leave faithful readers unhappy. Error: The head of the Bancroft family is a woman in this book and previous ones. However, when the heads all meet up, "he" and "his are the pronouns used for Bancroft.
