    One thought on “The Line”

    1. I thought the myth about vampire and krsnik -- fae turned vampire slayer -- was interesting. And when Rafael and Lan were together, it was sensual and sexy. BUT, this is another story whose potential is cut short because of the length. The romance and the conflict-resolution felt rushed. I would love to read this in a longer version.

    2. People, or in this case a vampire, who are at the top of the food chain can easily begin to be complacent when they begin to believe their own propaganda. Rafael is a case in point. He may be slightly unusual in that he doesn’t kill his "food", or "prey", but he does see himself as the man in charge, so to speak. When he runs into a creature who challenges that notion, he knows exactly what to do: kill it. Interestingly, the creature has other ideas… and Rafael will need to think about what [...]

    3. This is a Goldilocks book. As in, if you're in the mood for exactly sweet porridge, an exactly so bed and a few moments of life-threatening OMG Bears!, it will hit the spot.The angels/demons/wing-boy thing is a relic of my overwrought metal-and-eyeliner Grade 10 days. Wish this thing had been written back then ;)Brightened up my day.

    4. Really cute but way too short to feel fully finished. Vampire Rafael was funny, and also very kind. Krisnik Lan's character wasn't developed enough. There wasn't enough relationship development past instant love. Weirdly, Rafael and Lan's only sex scene was frotage, which was hot by the way. But they did need to have another sex scene to balance out Rafael having sex with his human donor Danny before he met Lan. Rafael joked that he hadn't bottomed in over 256 years!

    5. Very interesting characters and I liked their banter. I just wish their story could have been a bit longer to develop the romance

    6. 4.5 StarsI hate that moment when I sit down to write a review of something I loved and the only thing I can think is, "Wow, I really liked that." Then I spend an half hour writing a review that doesn't say exactly that because it's not really helpful. What I end up with is a mediocre review for something that I loved and no one has any idea why. That's what happened when I wrote and sent in my review of The Line by Angel Martinez. Later I look at it and say, well fiddlesticks, I can do better th [...]

    7. Review Written for mmgoodbookreviews.wordpress/Rafael is a vampire and has become so use to being the top of the food chain, the hunter that now being the hunted is quite new to him. Part of him fears the thing that is eating vampires, part of him is intrigued.Oh wow! This one had it all. There are vampires, death angels, hunters, and a complicated but slightly sweet love story. There is lots of action from the beginning and twists galore. What more can I say, nail-biting, frightening, sexy, and [...]

    8. I have that song, "Walk the Line". I have never paid that close attention to the lyrics, though I know them. It was the perfect piece for this story. I thought the author would try some fantastical cure so that the vamp could drink from Lan. The resolution to their situation made sense and allowed them to continue walking the line. I like it when an author maintains the integrity of his/her story while still giving me the HEA. Sometimes writers write themselves into a corner and then come up wit [...]

    10. Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5For the full review, visit wp/p220KL-4N1From that review: " The Line by Angel Martinez is another terrific story from this "auto read" fantasy author. The Line takes the typical vampire character, normally an apex predator when they aren't sparkling, and gives him an adversary, the Krsnik, worthy of such formidable being. Furthermore, Martinez doesn't just give us a remarkably scary hunter in the Krsnik, no, she gives us the haunting backstory as to how this creature ca [...]

    11. This story was entertaining. Raphael is a moral vampire who doesn't kill his very willing victims. And Lan, a predator to vampires, comes out of nowhere to chase him. Lan's chase was the best thing about this story. I actually wish it could have lasted longer. However, I do like the star-crossed lovers theme and I'm glad it ends with a HFN.

    12. 4.5/5.0I loved this lighter Angel Martinez book. Her vampire mythology is fun and the introduction of a Krsnik had me searching google for more information when I had finished the book. (I love it when I find something new to explore)The main characters are charming and the story is fast paced and sexy. A great quick read.

    13. Sweet romance between a vamp and a new-to-me paranormal breed. For a short story, I felt this packed a punch with good character depth and a very interesting pairing. I was in my happy place all through the story. Really enjoyed it.

    14. 3.0 stars I'm done with this book @ 76% and that percentage is not a typo. I don't like ebooks that end at 76%. It's jacked to the nines. And sadly, it detracted from a fairly enjoyable (if you ignore the insta-love) book.Bottom line: Irked me.

    15. The story was well written and I enjoyed reading it. I had never heard of krsniks until this book, and now I am very interested in them.

    16. Cute and entertainingI really enjoyed this quick read. It was entertaining and drew me into the story . I enjoyed the main characters and how the story developed .

    17. What should a vampire do when suddenly he's no longer predator but prey? Run for it! Or, if doesn't work confront his nightmare and see what happens.
