Publication Date: March 30, 2022

Genre: Paranormal Romance


732346E9-25F0-4E16-A65E-58A196ED531AGemma Leight doesn’t believe in magic—not after years of witnessing senseless tragedy as an ER nurse. But the sexy vampire anti-hero in her new favorite medieval-esque TV show speaks to her. As in, he says her name while looking at her through the screen. Just when Gemma’s convinced she hallucinated the whole thing, she gets pulled into his world.

For over a century, Skarde Blackmann has roamed as a hunter-for-hire against evil creatures. The moment he begins to believe the prophecy about him is bogus, Gemma comes through a mirror. One slip up, one bite to the sassy woman who makes him laugh, and she’ll become a vampire—and condemn his soul to damnation. Not a problem; he’ll just keep his distance.

But when Gemma’s life is at stake, staying away is no longer an option…



This is my first novel by Zoe Forward, and it won’t be my last. I found Nightslayer to be a fun and quick paranormal romance. Gemma’s life was rooted in gritty reality despite her friend being a witch. I liked that about her – that friendship helped her deal with the odd circumstances that propelled her into a new reality. It was a hoot watching her ramble on about things and sayings we would understand but were completely foreign to those on the other side. That made it fun to watch the taciturn  Skarde struggle to maintain his reputation as the biggest badass around. The storyline seemed a bit rushed at parts, and some behavior made me want to smack them upside the head, but I still enjoyed the dangerous twists and turns around their friends and foes…especially the characters I wasn’t sure about. I hope the next books is about Skarde’s brother. That I would like to see.
