**BOOK BLITZ** We Own the Night by Kristen Strassel

We Own the Night
(Night Songs Collection, #3)
by Kristen Strassel
Publication date: September 1st 2014
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Romance

Callie Chabot would stop at nothing to save her ex-boyfriend Blade Bennett from the clutches of vampire clan leader Talis de Rancourt, even if means becoming immortal herself. What she doesn’t know is that Blade has already defeated Talis, and he’s waiting for Callie in the afterlife.
Now Callie only has her creator, Tristan Trevosier, to turn to for guidance. But he’s too wrapped up in the debauchery of the Las Vegas rock scene to give a damn about the particulars of being undead. That’s enough to drive Callie crazy on its own, but female vampires are automatic clan leaders.
Not only does Callie have no idea how to wrangle a vampire clan, but her would-be followers have more to gain from her failure. They instead choose to follow Blade—and he’s hell-bent on making Callie pay for her bad decisions. Since he took out the existing clan leader, that automatically puts him at the helm of what should be Callie’s new clan.
That’s when seasoned rogue vampire, Cash Logan, shows up, shrouded in magic and mystery. No one is sure which side Cash is on, but Callie needs to take a chance on the one vampire who is willing to give her the answers she needs, no matter how dark and frightening they may be. Callie must trust her instincts and form alliances that may backfire. Cash shows Callie that playing nice is no longer an option, and that fixing her wrongs won’t always make everything right.
To take control of her clan, Callie must look to her rival to discover exactly what makes her a leader.

Top Five Vampire Movies/Shows:
  1. Interview with the Vampire. 

How can it not be? This is the book that introduced me to vampires, and the first series that I actively sought out the next books for. Before Anne Rice, I’d read my mom’s books, Stephen King and Jackie Collins. Rice was the first author who was mine. I loved this movie. I’ve always been more Team Louis than Team Lestat, and I’m always Team Brad Pitt. I’m anxious about the upcoming remake. Remakes are seldom better than the original, but I’m extremely curious how it gets updated.
  1. True Blood.

 I don’t have HBO anymore, so I’m behind on the last two seasons, but I love this. Love the books, too. See a trend forming? The cool thing about True Blood is that it’s only loosely based on the Stackhouse Series, so it’s almost like a two for one. I wrestle with which format I like better: even though the storylines on the TV show border on WTF, I love the extra characters they added. And Alexander Skarsgard. Praise be to Jesus.
  1. Forever Knight.


  3. Not everyone knows about this Canadian TV series, but I loved it. I discovered it at midnight one Saturday night, and thought Ben Bass was hot, so I got hooked. Another theme forming. Rick Springfield starred in the pilot movie of Forever Knight, and I may or may not like Mr. Springfield a little bit. (I do. A lot.) I discovered the movie after the series, so Rick being in it was just a bonus. I had to arm wrestle someone on eBay to win a copy of it.
  5. Queen of the Damned.


  7. This one took me a long time to warm up to. Aaliyah is creepy as hell in it. While I was writing We Own the Night, QotD was on one of the cable channels a couple times a week, it seemed. Again, I was a little reluctant to watch it, because rock star vampires and I didn’t want to borrow too much inspiration, but once I did, I liked Stuart Townsend better as Lestat than Tom Cruise. However, I struggled with reading this book. For me, the historical stuff with Akasha and the statues was too slow. Give me the rock stars. All of them.
  9. Dracula.


  11.  The NBC show. Why didn’t anyone else like this? I loved it. JRM was a bonus, but I loved this adaption of the story. It looked gorgeous, I loved all of the casting, I felt like it took good risks. I only watch a handful of TV series faithfully, so if it grabs me, I’m really into it. I also love that NBC is attempting to do some classic remakes, even though Rosemary’s Baby was so full of WTF I couldn’t make it to the end of the first episo
