Vampire Watchmen by Tim O'Rourke

vampire
The second addictive adventure in Tim O'Rourke's acclaimed Sammy Carter series

It's been a year since Samantha Carter blasted back to 1888, barely escaping with her life. Now, returned to present-day London with only her flatmate for company, she's starting to believe that everything - the blood-curdling vampires, her strange and sudden skills with a gun, even her mysterious lover Harry - was nothing but a dream.

Just when Sammy is about to lose all hope that her friends and memories were real, it finally happens again. This time she's pulled back to a city she does not recognise: a London in the grip of a terrible plague, where death haunts the night and a deeper, darker threat lurks underground, waiting for its chance . . .

Fighting side by side with her friends once again, Sammy encounters horrors beyond her imagining; yet what really terrifies her are the endless questions, one most of all: who is she really? Torn between the life she longs for and the life she can believe in, Sammy must decide whether she's brave enough to risk everything, even her heart . . .
Review: Vampire Watchmen is a gripping story filled with horror, mystery and intrigue. Samantha Carter is a brilliant character torn between her unusual choices and he writer really drags you into her dilemma with his wonderful writing style! I was gripped from the very first page. I read this book  before the first one, and although I had no trouble following the plot, I will definitely be returning to read the previous! I can't wait for more in this amazing series.
