Chained and tortured in an underground cell for seven long years, Master vampire Luukas Kreek vows to take revenge on the raven haired witch that took his power…and his sanity...the witch with the face of an angel. Emaciated and weak, he desperately tries to hold on long enough to find a way to destroy her. But with one taste of her blood, only one word bursts through his fragile psyche…MINE.
Keira Moss has spent the last seven years trying to figure out a way to get herself out of this hellhole…and to save the strong-willed vampire she’s grown to admire, and to love, while she’s at it. But she’s afraid that not even a witch as powerful as she will get out of this one. Forced to destroy him or have her sister pay the price, she knows that the vampire that holds her heart will kill her the moment he gets the chance. And she won’t stop him.
Once free from their chains, Luukas discovers that the one who broke him may be the only one who can put him back together. But then, in a cruel twist of fate, Keira is taken from him, and now Luukas must return to the nightmare where it all began to get her back. Tortured and confused, his overwhelming need for her wars once again with his lust for Blood Vengeance, and his shattered mind must choose: to kill the witch or to love the angel…making her HIS, forever.

A Vampire’s Vengeance is the second book in the Deathless Night series and is Luukas and Keiras’ story whom I met in book one. It was here I learnt someone kidnapped them and they have been missing for seven years. I enjoyed the first book and looked forward to reading the second book.
As a master vampire, capturing and imprisoning Luukas would have been impossible. However, his enemy had the perfect weapon to subdue him, a powerful witch named Kiera.
Seven years of captivity at the hands of an insane vampire hungry for power would break anyone and Luukas was no exception. I felt for him. It could not have been easy for someone so powerful to be brought to his knees in such a fashion.
Keira found herself in a precarious position. Forced to use her powers to subdue and torture Luukas. One might say as a powerful witch, it would have been easy to thwart the enemy’s plan. However, the enemy had a contingency, either Keira complied or Emma, her sister dies.
Luukas vowed to get revenge on the witch responsible for holding him prisoner. It did not matter if she had been under duress. However, things took a turn when she tried to protect him. He then found himself with this intense desire to protect her, even though he still felt the need for revenge. This mental battle haunted him during his time of captivity and after his escape from the hellhole. His mental battle intensified upon learning Keira was his mate. Despite all he has been through, Luukas proved a force to be reckoned with, especially in protecting Keira.
Keira felt remorseful about her part in Luukas‘s imprisonment and was willing to accept whatever punishment he dished out,even if it meant her death.
Leeah, the vampire who held Luukas and Emma captive was one screw short of crazy. Her quest for power led her down a demented pathway. She wants to become the ruler of all vampires. The author expounded on her life after she became a vampire providing insight as to the reason for her current actions. At one point I felt sorry for her, but the feeling only lasted for a moment.
The story took place within the same timeline of Emma and Nikulas’ story. The author provided updates on what transpired with the members of Luukas’s hunting team since their appearance in book one. I am curious to learn what is in store for them. We also get information about Nikulas and Emma, which did not feature in the previous installment. This was an easy read and like its predecessor, I had a hard time putting it down. There were some intense moments, which had me holding my breath.
A Vampire’s Vengeance provided suspense served with romance and a side of magic. I am excited to continue series. The epilogue left me wondering what happened to Aiden and what will be Leaah’s next move.
I recommend this series to fans of paranormal romance.
