Patriarch: Coiree Guardians - Book Three
When I received this book in the mail I was worried.. I saw the cover, I am horrible at judging books by their covers and I didn't think it was going to be something I liked at all. I love it when I am proved wrong! The story's main character is Beka, who's had her fair share of bad luck in her past and has the emotional and physical baggage to prove it. She is living with her brother in a building that is owned by Vincent.
It starts off right away with Beka learning that Vincent is a vampire When I received this book in the mail I was worried..

- Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann – review?
- Killer (Coiree Guardians, #2) by Mari Miniatt.
It starts off right away with Beka learning that Vincent is a vampire and that she is the only one that didn't know. When she finally starts trying to get use to the idea she is attacked by Steopa another vampire. What goes on after is a story of how she copes with becoming a vampire with the help of Steopa who is linked to her through his bite.
She learns that she has a rare gift, something that is beneficial to her more than once. I was so captivated by the story of her transitioning and the adventure that she embarks on to rid her city of evil at it's deadliest. I am trying REALLY hard not to have any spoilers here Another thing that stood out in the book is the characters, but it did leave me wanting to know more about Vincent and Steopa's lives pre and post vampire.
I really liked Beka's character for the simple fact she wasn't the perfect 10 girl that you read in most books. She's got a little weight on her and she's very insecure about herself in many ways. She's selfish to the point that she's only concerned about what goes on in her worldl Although after turning into a vampire she learns to except herself and in turn learns how selfish she had been.
I believe she more than proves herself as being selfless and learning that even though her past has demons, it doesn't mean that it has to rule her life.

She has to learn to accept the changes, and the consequences. There are always consequences. Her first problem is a power-hungry runt, who will do anything to get what he wants. But, what exactly is that? Once they find out what this guy wants, things get complicated Independent author Mari Miniatt has gone back to fan Beka just got bitten.
Independent author Mari Miniatt has gone back to fantasy basics with this little gem. Her first reaction is exactly how people should be reacting, which is what makes her lovable from the beginning. Another great thing about this book is the different take on other fantastical creatures. One thing that I was a little disappointed with was the lack of characterisation. With this criticism, I think this book is very original, in comparison with some of the drivel that gets published these days. Sep 06, Ruth rated it it was amazing.
This is why I enjoyed this book: First, it was a book I didn't skim.
I tend to do that when the description or action gets too long. This is a personal preference. Some people enjoy lots of description and action, but I don't. I do enjoy a little bit of description to get me into the setting, but from there, my imagination takes over so I want the dialogue, internal thoughts, and action that adds to the plot rather than is randomly placed there or extended to the point where I lose interest.
This This is why I enjoyed this book: This was a book that read quick because it was to the point, and I liked that. Second, it had horror elements. I found this to be a refreshing change from the lovelorn vampires currently popular on the market. Sorry but I'm not big into that kind of thing. Like the other person said, it probably can't be defined as horror, but there were parts where I cringed and said, "Ewe. It was so gross that it was awesome. Another example is when her head came off. So yeah, I'd say this is not for the faint of heart. Third, I love that the main character, Beka, is not one of those gorgeous and slim women who have men falling all over themselves to meet.
She's overweight and has real problems from her past to deal with. And as a bonus, Steopa, the vampire who attacked her and ended up making her a vampire, doesn't see her the way "humans" do.

He kept saying, "Think like a vampire instead of a human" and it spoke of how he didn't notice all the things "wrong" with her that our society tends to view as wrong with women who are not perfect. I also loved that they slowly established a bond. Nothing was forced or rushed. And last, but not least, it was not a cliffhanger. This book neatly ties itself up but also leaves you wondering what happens to the characters next.

How fire caught on and unicorns took off: 2017's book trends
There's a lot to like in this book. And here a second theme emerges, a twist. White cracks the case, using guile, new forensic methods and exploitation of the fears and grudges of the very crooks Hale had used, now turned against him. Though Grann does not write like a Cormac McCarthy or Larry McMurtry , one can forget sometimes that this is historical investigation, and not fiction in their vein. Then turn the page, and there are photographs of the characters about whom we are reading, from the archive, in real life.

Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. Zombies will always be my favorite undead people, but author Mari Miniatt has introduced me to a new vampire series that does not have the silly garbage found in the Twilight Saga like glittering vampires who are actually pedophiles, if you stop to think about it.
I've already reviewed her first book Fledgling, at THIS, and was very excited to be offered the chance to review Killer: Coiree Guardians Book Two. After reading her fabulous follow-up, I'm thinking Miniatt's vamps will be allowed to coexist with my zombies in my personal library. In the first of the series, we meet Beka aka Rebecka, who is turned into a vampire, and realizes that another world has existed right underneath her nose before her change.
