The House of Cards (Addune #2) by Wendy Potocki


addune 2



I finished reading the first book and went straight into this one. The characters from the first book return (some only mentioned in named and play no actual role) as well as a bunch of new characters.

Miranda is slowly realizing what she has become and what has happened to her. She makes a new friend, Tatiana, who helps her to escape the evil place where she is trapped. Tatiana and Miranda become good friends after Tatiana realizes that what Miranda says is true and that she isn’t indulging in the drink. Miranda knows she is different than Peter and Rachel but doesn’t understand why she still cares and loves. She finds out later by a gypsy named Dagmar who helps to free her.

Reginald Charles and Victor Rodriguez (Tiffany’s father) form a sort of alliance to bring down the one responsible for Tiffany’s death. The police and media are blaming Miranda Perry but they think otherwise. Victor’s sons are smart and pick up on clues that the police like to ignore. Unfortunately, another member of the Rodriguez family is lost during this investigation.

This book is split between following several different characters: Miranda, Reginald Charles and his family/friends, Tiffany Rodriguez’s family, Peter Addune, Stroker and Rachel Abbott. Everyone except Tiffany’s family are key players from the first book.

Overall, I say this is a good book. Like the first book, it doesn’t seem like there are that many pages. You just read from page to page. It’s not like some of the books that you are excited for the ending to be in site. The only bad thing I can say is that the author leaves it in a cliff hanger.

The third and final installment of this trilogy isn’t set to release until September.

The Vampire’s Game (Addune #1) by Wendy Potocki

addune 1



Miranda Perry takes over Perry Antiques after her father dies in a terrible car crash. Unbeknownst to her, things are on a roller coaster long before her father perishes. Her father isn’t the man she thought he was and it comes to light through the course of the book.

Things start falling into place over the course of this book and you can follow along and sometimes guess what is going to happen. (You won’t always be right!)

Peter Addune is out for revenge and he starts playing a game with Miranda who is too daft to see what is right in front of her face! So many clues are right there but she doesn’t realize anything until it’s too late. She loses people she loves dearly before she realizes what was there all along.

I really liked this book because it doesn’t follow the typical vampire books in some senses. You’ll know what I mean if you have read or if you read this book.

99 cents on Kindle

498 pages (It sure doesn’t seem like it is this many pages. Trust me, it’s not one of those books you’re counting the pages on until you’re done!)
