Guest Book Review: Oliver’s Hunger (Scanguards Vampires #7) by Tina Folsom
Oliver’s Hunger was a great read for me because of the action and romance between Oliver and Ursula. I think that Ursula was a perfect match for Oliver in that she is able to comfort him and care for him in ways that his vampire family are unable. I have always loved Tina Folsom’s books and the Scanguards Vampire series especially. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves vampires and romance.
Oliver’s struggle with his hunger for blood seemed like a great basis for the novel as it created a problem. However I was slightly disappointed with the way the other vampires handled it. The Scanguards Vampires always seemed close in previous books and almost like a family, but in Oliver’s Hunger they are quick to believe the worst in Oliver and, when proven wrong, they are dismissive with their apologies. I loved Ursula as the heroine in this novel because she supported Oliver when it seemed like no one else would, while still being determined to bring down the vampire slavers even though it would have been simpler for her to walk away.
Each character has a significant role in the plot of the novel and is fully developed through their own book, although it isn’t necessary to read the Scanguards Vampire series in order. The action scenes are straight out of an action movie with Oliver coming to the rescue as a superhero. The action scenes are also needed to balance out the steamy scenes between Oliver and Ursula, as he attempts to help her rediscover something she believes she has lost. Oliver’s Hunger made me smile and believe in love, even though you may have to fight against other people and yourself to get it. I will definitely be reading the rest of the Scanguards series when it continues.
Oliver cannot control himself any longer when his family closes in…
“You have no idea what’s going on inside on me!”
The nightmare that Ursula was forced to live through causes her to do something she never thought she would do…
Desperation made her say words she thought she’d never utter. ‘I’ll sleep with you if you help me.’

If you enjoyed Oliver’s Hunger, I would recommend the rest of Tina Folsom’s Scanguards Vampire Series. I also recommend J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series (starting with Dark Lover) because of the similar bond between the characters through the novels in the series that appears familial.
