Shane and Ciara has more battles to fight, new enemies, and they also need to continue their training with the Control. Everything is happening very fast, and Ciera continues to show signs of a strange power that seems to have stayed with her even after she became a vampire. As Shane and Ciara has a wedding to plan, they also need to stay on top of everything else going on - and the pace is fast, but then again, the game is definitely on!

Lust for Life is the fourth and last installment in the WVMP Radio series. I kept it unopened on my kindle for a very long time, because this is another series I just don’t want to end! The ending, however is absolutely perfect! There is still mystery, surprises, love, friendship, loyalty, courage and romance.

Lust for Life is really action-packed, but there are still some tender moments between Ciara and Shane. They are both still training with Control, even if they don’t like having to do that at all. Jim is in retirement after he tried to kill Ciara, and strange things are happening at their favorite bar. The story starts with a huge bang! There’s an anonymous bomb threat to the Burning Pig, and they just manage to leave before the bar is blown apart. Lust for Life is a very apt title, because with everything Ciara learns about her anti-magic abilities, she also learns that this makes her a very volatile vampire – and she might fade faster than her friends because of it.

There are a lot of revelations in Lust for Life, one being that Jim had changed Deirdre into a vampire before he was taken by Control, and he told noone. When she desperately calls Shane for help, and blood, he an Ciara rush to Deirdre’s house to help her out.

Lust for Life is extremely difficult to review without any spoilers, so let me just say that Shane and Ciara are true to character, their love is still strong, even after Shane has spent a whole month in control. The writing is very fast-paced, because there are a lot of things happening – both good and bad. There are several unexpected twists, that made me very satisfied with the conclusion of a series I truly love! And it’s wonderful to read a series in which all of the books continued building the characters and the world true to form, even with different sub-plots, things make a lot of sense in WVMP radio.

If you haven’t read any books in this series, now is the time to start – since all the books have been published, you can pick them all up, start reading and just be completely immersed in this world of vampires, witches, necromancers, wanna-bes, DJ’s and blood-lust!

As Jeremy and I head toward the bed, I realize that this is what it means to be a vampire. our survival is tenuous, and a constant obsession.

One by one we drop into the crap-oleum (like a mausoleum for crap, is where I’m coming from, linguistically.)

At least one of us should be sanguine about this. (Heh, sanguine.)

    • I’m a big fan of Jeri Smith-Ready, and these vampires are a little different than the vampires I usually read about. There is a lot of magic talk as well 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by Stormi. Have a wonderful week!

    • I know, right? I love this whole series, and I agree the cover is made of awesome. I wish there were more to come in the WVMP series – but at least I have all the books to re-read whenever I choose to 🙂

    • Now that the series is completed, it’s even better, you could read the books back to back if you’d like 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by Kate!

    • Thanks Naomi! I kept it on my TBR for a very long time too – I didn’t want the series to end 😉

      Have a great day.
