Ritual by Alex Duval


Things at DeVere Heights have been quite and just as Jason thinks he's out of danger, trouble comes and finds him. While at the local psychic fair that his sister dragged him to, the psychic there predicted that his life was in a world of danger but Jason just scoffs at the idea. But after an afternoon at the beach filled with surfing and volleyball, he takes the warning a little more serious. While walking alone on the beach, he gets shot with a crossbow.

There's a vampire hunter loose in DeVere Heights and the culprit could be anyone. At first Jason believes that it was just an accident but when bodies of his friends start piling up tension starts to run high between the vampires.

I absolutely loved reading this. It's so addictive, and the way that Duval writes just draws you into the story and doesn't let go till the very end. The suspense of the killer is kept right till the end where you're kept right at the edge of your seat. It's an fast and easy read. It's always nice to see in a vampire novel the main character is a strong male character rather than the usual damsel. This was one of the main reasons as to why I picked this series to read.

What I didn't like about this book was how Duval kept the action scenes too late in the book so I felt the ending was a little rushed. And I felt that there was a little too much build up for such a short book. I could have done so without so much suspense when the hints and plot was leading to an pretty obvious outcome. But what I really loved was that it was really hard in trying to guess who the killer was and Duval did a fantastic job in pointing fingers at everyone.

Through reading the first three books of this series, all the characters especially some of the minor characters really starts to grow on you. An intriguing read.
