Author Anita E. Viljoen continues the McKay vampire saga in Hybrid, the sequel to her book, Feeders.
Gemma Anne O’ Sullivan, also known as Gem, is the daughter of a human mother, Megan McKay, and a vampire father, Michael O Sullivan. She is a hybrid and the first female of her kind, a secret kept by the McKay council for two and a half decades. The reappearance of Sire Raymond Pitout in Canada threatens and compromises her secret, as the International Vampire Council sends out its head of security, Lord Malcolm Murphy (the first hybrid), to protect Gem and destroy Sire Pitout.
Malcolm finds things becoming complicated, especially when he falls in love with Gem. He meets Gem’s friend, Deidre Wolff, who turns out to be an alter-seer (an oracle/vampire hunter), and also her human sister, Grace O’ Sullivan, who has the same unique trait as her aunt, Mia O’ Sullivan, Michael’s twin sister. With all of these unique personalities under one roof, Malcolm has his work cut out for him.
It has been ages since I did a book review on here! I promise I have a few up my sleeve :) So, I've been in the mood for something other than YA of late, and have been reading a few "adult" books, such as Hybrid. I won a copy of this quite a while ago, and it was finally cropping up close to the top of my tbr stack! Anyhow, there was lots going on this book--and by lots, I mean LOTS. It was a fun romp, with some delightful *ahem* steamy scenes (hey, I may write YA, but I am an adult...). I did find myself wanting to get to the action toward the end sooner, as it felt a little drawn out, but overall, it was a fun book!
