   I received this book in exchange for an honest review in December. I previously posted my review for this novel on GoodReads but I decided to also include it on my blog. I know, it’s like April now, so I came across that thought quite late. But, better late than never, right?
    I've read Unholy Alliance in a matter of hours because I just couldn't put it down. When I signed up to review it, I thought that it might very well be the typical cheese vampire/human(hunter) story which wouldn't really get me interested. But, it turned out the opposite way. I'm not a big fan of Vampire-stories anymore, but I really enjoyed this read.
    The story is very entertaining and filled with action scenes, which already mark the beginning of the novel. The characters are believable and funny. Their actions are mostly relatable and interesting.
    But the ending is really mean. It leaves you hanging and wanting more, even though I'm not sure if I like the idea that book nr. 2 is centered around Rachel, due to the fact that she wasn't one of my favorite characters. But I might still read it.
I quite enjoyed the 2 POV's. They had distinct voices, which was very nice. Many books fail at creating two good voices but the author did quite a good job in this one.

    I give it 4 out of 5 stars and can honestly recommend it to vampire fans or people who want to get out of the reading slump, because it’s a light and enjoyable read.
