Running in the Dark by Regan Summers was a fast pasted vampire romance with lots of action. The heroine, Sydney Kildare, was clever and unique. Her internal dialog was very entertaining and her overall resilience and spunk was a great recipe for an awesome heroine. Running in the Dark starts out after a major change in Sydney’s life. She has been uprooted to Chili after a disturbance in vampire politics in Alaska forced her to relocate into hiding. I would have liked to learn more about this major event before reading Running in the Dark and believe Don’t Bite The Messenger probably clarifies a lot of Sydney’s history. I will be snatching it up as soon as I am finished here! At times It felt that I was reading the second book in a series. However, I still really enjoyed Running in the Dark. I enjoyed Regan Summers spin on vampires and the relationships they have with humans. The world rules were clear and Running in the Dark had a great Urban Fantasy feel with a touch of paranormal romance added in! The action in this book was fantastically written and I loved this blend of genres.
After surviving a vampire turf war in Alaska, vampire courier Sydney Kildare is back behind the wheel and working under an assumed name in Chile. She doesn’t speak the language, doesn’t know the city and—worst of all—has to drive a crappy car.
What she does have is Malcolm Kelly, her sort-of boyfriend and manager of the city’s vampire population. But with Malcolm preoccupied by bloodsucker business—and a gorgeous vampiress from his past—Sydney feels more alone than ever.
But Sydney has more than her love life to worry about. She’s got vamps on her tail, mysterious deliveries that leave death in their wake, and old enemies targeting her to get to Malcolm. Turns out he’s got a history more deadly than she ever imagined, and she’ll have to use every skill in her arsenal to stay alive…
I rate Running in the Dark 4 out of 5 Bullets!
