After reading Bloodborn, Book 1 of this series, I was disappointed a bit (3 Stars). Although it was a well written suspense story, I felt like I was reading about human nobles and assassins rather than vampires. 1000 year old Vampire Mages, Vampire Warriors, and Vampire Shape Shifters were thwarted by doors that lead from the master bedroom to the hallway. The action was well written but there was nothing superhuman about it. I always imagined that vampire fights would be more like Marvel Superhero Movies utilizing their superhuman strength, speed, and agility with collateral damage. It seemed like 1000 year old vampires were easily duped and their senses failed them. Also, Ulrika's character was a bit inconsistent and she seems to master her stark raving mad blood cravings overnight. With these things in mind, Bloodforged is an improvement over Bloodborn in every way.

In the second book of this trilogy, Ulrika Magdova continues to chafe against her new vampiric state, trying to live her life on her own terms. She flees her benefactor Gabrielle and returns to Praag, intent on battling the hordes of Chaos laying siege there... but the situation there is entirely different than what she expected. Ulrika soon finds herself waging a one-woman war against a diabolical Chaos cult, while at the same time caught up in an ancient vendetta between vampires, with the fate of every soul in Praag at stake.
I found the story slow to start, but once Ulrika gets to Praag the pace picks up and the book becomes the kind of page-turner I've come to expect from Nathan Long. As usual, Long does a great job bringing life to even minor characters, and Ulrika is as fiery and conflicted as ever.
The finale of the story hints at the true nature of the villain behind the events of both this and the first book, and promises an epic conclusion to this tale...
