review 1: I received this book to give an honest review.Disarming picks up right where Reign of Blood ended. Now with the prologue of this story I was a bit confused at first going okay what does this have to do with that? I do not remember this person. But later on it became clearer, and I understood the prologue. I have to say that was cool writing that in there. April has some tough things coming her way in Disarming, how will she hold up. April and Rye have some unfinished business but April being her stubborn self doesn't seem to understand Rye's feelings for her. April is trying to take care of her mother and brother in this world of vampires. When something happens to someone close to April, she doesn't know what to do. There are plenty of twist and turns going on that you a... morere wanting more and more. This was a book I could not put down.April ends up hearing that there could be humans living in Las Vegas and she sets off to find the, but does she bite off more than she can chew? An old character comes into play that I did not even think would be alive. Not only that something happens between April and this character, something that she didn't want to happen but it was the only way to survive. But these humans who are they, and what are they? All the answers come to the surface, there is a bit of heart-break and decisions that have to be made. I do wonder if there could possibly be a book three in the works? If so I really want to read it. I want to know what is going to happen to April now.
review 2: This series must be read in order. The first book is Reign of Blood (Reign of Blood #1). This is the second book.Murphy's Law truly describes the world now... Whatever can go wrong WILL go wrong! April is stuck with her mother Helen who has retreated into agoraphobia and distanced herself from her children and the world to the point of complete introspection and self loathing disinterest. Helen will not even allow April to see to her grooming needs. April does not know what tortures her mother endured at the hands of Christian's Hive but she wishes her mother would snap out of it already! She(April) is just waaay too young to be the mother/teacher/protector/decision-maker for her family of hybrid humans! After all she is just 18!!! The new world order is no order at all with feral Zompires around every corner and more mysteries surfacing every day... Why can't she bring herself to commit to Rye? What is she going to do about her mother Helen? Does she really have a say on the Hive's ruling council or is it just for show to keep her around(she is after all the salvation of the hybrid vampires as she carries the cure to the wasting/rotting disease in her blood)? Will they ever find out what caused this terrible plague of death/undeath? Who or what is mass exterminating the Ferals? Or are they just committing mass suicide?This book has the romance as a major issue for April to deal with... so I definitely would not consider this in any way a romance novel lol. The thrills and chills are a good spice for all the action and adventure. While the mysteries definitely make you want to yell at April to just mind her own business and stay in her quasi safe world instead of poking at every little thing that is new or different or confusing! I felt like the kid in the theater yelling at the girl on the screen "don't do it!" Alot of the time reading this book. The humor is present throughout even if it is of a Much darker flavor this time around :) I really enjoyed this book and can not wait to read the next one Amplified (Reign of Blood #3) or maybe Elijah (The Miel Chronicles) (A Reign of Blood Series Companion) the companion novella! I havent decided which yet ... But whichever I read I know it will be Awesome :)***This series is suitable for mature young adult through adult readers less
