Reviewed by Danita Dyess for Readers' Favorite

In the book “Taken in the Night” by Tara Fox Hall, human beings transform into animals. Vampires lead “normal” lives in between “feedings” – that is vampire-speak for sucking blood -- and babies fathered by werecougars soon develop paws and catlike characteristics. But that is just part of the story. Sar, a 30-year-old lady and mere mortal, is part of an interesting relationship between Danial, her former lover and Vampire Ruler of the U.S., and Theo, her current boyfriend and professional bodyguard. Theo recently became a father to another man’s wife, Tawny, a werelion. Was that why he was killed? Could a deadly potion be the reason for Tawny’s sudden death after giving birth or is Peterson, a weapons dealer, part of a sinister plot to destroy Danial?

“Taken in the Night” was totally different from what I expected. Hall is a gifted writer who definitely lured me into the inner sanctum of vampires and immortals. The cover is very provocative and true to the author’s distinctive, erotic style. The pace is fast. The dialogue between Sar, Danial and Theo was so real. I could relate to Sar; she was the girl next door or the sister that every woman has. Some parts were sexy if not sexual. Hall is a prolific writer of suspense, paranormal, historical romance, etc. This book is part of a series including “Promise Me,” “Broken Promise” and “Take for His Own.” "Taken in the Night” is highly recommended.
