Review: The Coward's Way Out Ward of the Vampire #4 by Kallysten

Image
I received this ARC copy to give an honest review.

Man Kallysten does it again in the 4th book of this series. Not only that these covers look amazing! They just draw you into the story. These novellas just keep getting better and better. When you start thinking you know what is going to happen bam she starts to surprise you yet again. With The Coward's Way Out we get a better look into Morgan and why he is the way he is and you get to see his personal demons. 

My favorite quote in the book is "Love is a strange thing. Trying to reason with it is a fool's errand." 
This goes perfect with this book being as Morgan and Angelina are so attracted to one another but yet only one of them wants to act upon it. 

You also get to see a side of the butler Stephen that you never saw before. It is like with this book you get a personal view from those that live in the mansion which I think is perfect especially since I have followed this series from book one. 

Morgan is still as hot …

Before the day… before M-day… people used to read books and watch movies about zombies. They used to dress up as zombies; pretend to kill zombies… Basically, zombies had become a part of popular culture in a very unexpected way.

The highly anticipated zombie apocalypse never came.

What did come was much worse than any city over run with shambling corpses after brains and flesh. A virus… a virus that only affected men. Nobody knew what caused it, or where it had come from, not that it really mattered. It's here and there’s no going back.

Maxine was one of the lucky ones--she got out alive. She and her friends banded together to survive the new desolate conditions left behind by the virus. When a supply gathering mission goes awry, Max and company are left with no better choice than to trust a group of uninfected military men. No longer on the run from her infected husband, Max discovers there could be worse dangers for her on the horizon… Like losing her heart to her mysterious savio…

Life was never boring in Defiance!
Excerpt: "Our class went to the school library for a research project. As I was looking for a book, a note that was folded up like a football flew over the top of a six-foot-high bookshelf and landed at my feet. It was a request for my friend Cindy and me to go on a double date with Randy and his best friend, Tim.
The following day, a five-pound bag of sour balls mysteriously appeared in my locker, along with another note requesting a date. I found out where Randy's locker was and returned the candy, along with a note saying that Cindy and I had to work on Friday night, so we could not go on a date with them.
A day or two later, the persistent guys asked where we worked, and I told them we worked at Murphy's in Defiance. (I actually did work there, but Cindy didn't have a job.) I thought that was the end of them, until they showed up at Murphy's on Friday night and tried to talk to me while I was working. I didn't even know …

Financed a good part of General Lee's war against northern aggression. Yep, we did. Here recently, we almost got us a fat mailbox money deal, but things didn't quite work out, well not for all of us. We ran when we shoulda stuck it out, spooked when we shoulda been calm and lived in an ignorance of our own making. But it wasn't all our own fault. No, you see, if'n our fine neighbors had been on the up and up, I'd wager things woulda been just fine. I put it all out on paper, good and proper so you can see for yourself. It's a right fine mess. Might want to put away the beverages while you read; I hear tell Coca-Cola …
