What readers are saying about Chase Nightly, L'Uccisore

" a southern flavor to the story with southern charm and manners, and a few Italian words....​​a story more about the hunter team, its connections to each other and own sense of family, than about the vampires. This is a nice change of pace from most vampire novels."
