Book Review: Vampire Wake

Greetings everyone, welcome to my blog and hope you enjoy my latest review for Tim O’Rourke’s book, “Vampire Wake.” This is only the second book in his first series featuring Kiera Hudson and I couldn’t wait to start it. I hope you will enjoy my thoughts and snatch this book up for your next read.

The Review

They suspend Kiera Hudson from the police force after what happened in the small town of Ragged Cove. Now on her own with nothing to do she looks for work as a detective. She waits for signs of the horror that will come by watching the news like a hawk.

Then the day comes she meets Ms. Hunt and gets hired to protect her daughter, pretty much babysit her. Little does Kiera realize that her life has already begun to unravel. Life outside Hallowed Manor disappears while she sits behind its safe walls. With a strange man wrapped in bandages on the grounds she finds herself on the mission to find out his true identity.

Tim O’Rourke creates a puzzle of events that come together as he sews them together as one. I found myself so captivated by this book I read it in one sitting without realizing time passed. The ending still leaves me reeling and wanting more. The nice thing about this series is I don’t have to wait for the next book to come out. I can jump right into the next one and trust me this book just makes you hungry to keep going.

Some questions that ran through my head while reading this book:

Where is Murphy, Luke and Potter?

What happened to them?

Who is pulling the strings to bring Kiera to Hallowed Manor?

What secrets lay within the hidden wing of Hallowed Manor?

If you want to know the answers to these questions like I did, you must read “Vampire Wake” to get your answers.

Ranking: 5 out of 5 stars!

The Book


Since escaping from The Ragged Cove and finding herself suspended from the police force, Kiera Hudson is hired by the mysterious Lady Hunt to protect her 16-year-old daughter from a stranger she believes is lurking on the moors. But little does Kiera know that it is she who will need protecting.
Arriving at the Hallowed Manor on the desolate Welsh Moors, Kiera soon realises that the vampires she has been seeing are not just the stuff of her nightmares, but are very real – and are closing in.
If Kiera is to escape the vampires who hunt her, she will have to discover the true identity of the bandaged man, the secret of the children’s graveyard beneath the weeping willows, and who, or what, is hiding in the “forbidden wing” of the Hallowed Manor.

Vampire Wake is Book Two of The Kiera Hudson Series One.
