Summary of the Book:

Can Kit serve a vampire warlock without becoming evil herself?

When vampires in Austin break the centuries-long code of silence, bloodsuckers around the world are forced to choose sides. Vampire Guild Leader Holzhausen allies with the traditionalist Quieters who kill those who speak the truth about their kind. Kit feels duty-bound to support her patron, but as a tsunami of vampires take to social media, the enormity of her boss’ position grows untenable.

As Holzhausen uses dark curses and assassinations to solidify his political base, Kit realizes that the only way to keep from becoming complicit in her mentor’s massacres is to escape the city. But when a betrayal thwarts Kit’s plans to flee, she finds herself faced with an unspeakable choice: murder a friend or endanger her family’s lives by refusing.

Will Kit remain loyal to the warlock who trained her or die for refusing to cross an ethical line?

Vampire’s Pawn is the ninth book in the Kit Melbourne series. If you like character driven urban fantasy with an ethically nuanced plot, then you’ll love Kater Cheek’s dark novel.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This book pushes Kit to so many limits and she has decisions that had to be made. When some vampires want the world to know they exist, but it divides people on all sides of the issue. Kit wants to protect her family and she decides she needs to get out of the city. But keeping up with her track record she is betrayed by someone close to her and she has to make a deadly decision that will come with some dire consequences. I know this series is winding down and I don’t want it to end, but I do want Kit to get a little piece.

My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
