|Plot Summary of Resurrections|
Pinnacle, Sept 2002, 5.99, 304 pp.
Deidre Griffin and Mitch Greer are still very much in love and happily married but that is the only thing in their lives that have remained the same. They reside in Whitby, England where they run the local pub and live on the edge ever since vampires have come out of the closet and humans know that they are real. The Others, beings who know how to fight vampires, are determined to exterminate them.
One day while Mitch and Deidre are looking for human blood, an Other attacks her. They destroy him but Deidre drinks his blood only to realize it has been poisoned and that toxin flows within her. Deidre falls ill and everyday that goes by she is losing more and more of her memory. A desperate Mitch calls Sam and Vivienne for help because if Deidre is not cured soon, she will forget all about the deep and abiding love she has for Mitch.
Nobody can ever predict what direction “The vampire Legacy” will take (probably the author as well) and RESURRECTION is no exception. Fans of this series will find many surprises in store for them, some joyous and some horrific. Karen E. Taylor's viewpoint of vampire society is fascinating and enthralling while her heroine endears herself to the audience with her human emotions of love and regret. This reviewer will impatiently wait for the next book in this popular series.
