Revenant is what they call him. For centuries, Kye has not lived, he has merely existed. Moving from city to city, continent to continent, Kye is always searching for the one man who visited upon him the destruction of his family and the shattering of his soul.

Tali is a woman with a mission of her own. Her objective, find the vampire Balthazar and, by any means, send what is left of his soul fleeing from this life.

When two slayers meet, the results are bound to be… Violent. Explosive. And erotic. But if they both work together, they may overcome the insane odds stacked against them and, just possibly, come out alive.

The Slayer is a standalone novel featuring vampires and revenge. I have read quite a few of this author’s books and this is the first one that didn’t work for me.

Kye is not a vampire but he’s not human either. Tali is a human on a mission. One problem, two different angles. Both of them are aided by different characters, but a lot is left unsaid and unexplained.

The trouble I had with this book is I didn’t connect with either Kye or Tali. Instead of being immersed into the storyline, where I feel like I’m there, and care about the characters and situations, I was most definitely outside the book, reading in. I felt no connection to either of the main characters, indeed, none of the characters. I also didn’t really care if Kye and Tali got together, which is sort of one of the main points of the book.

I feel this is a marmite book – some will love it, others, not. Unfortunately for me, I fell into the second category on this one. It was an okay read that I finished. The writing is good, the story – good, but I just didn’t feel anything. Saying that, I would still recommend this book as I know this author has written some amazing stories, and this just wasn’t one for me, but someone else might love it.
