Review: Born in Twilight by Maggie Shayne

Title: Born in Twilight (Wings in the Night #5)
Author: Maggie Shayne
Source: Self-Purchased
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Length: Novel
Release Date : July 1, 2007
Reviewer: Jasmyn

He found her in an abandoned building, half-starved, her face chalk white yet strikingly beautiful. Those violet eyes drew him closer, even though Jameson Bryant knew what she was. Even though she warned him away. But it was too late. With one parting of her lips, the hungry creature of the night took him...
Nine months later, their tiny dark angel was twilight.

Born in Twilight tells the story of Jameson.  The little boy we first met in Twilight Phantasies (Wings in the Night #1), is all grown up and not sure if he wants to be turned or not.   Angelica is a newly turned vampire on her own with no one to teach her.  She takes Jameson without realizing what she is doing and leaves him for dead.  Now, as you can tell from the blurb on the book - Angelica ends up pregnant with Jameson's child, but I don't want to give away too many of the specifics - let's just say that the bad guys have a hand in the whole thing.

This was not my favorite of the series so far.  Jameson got on my nerves with his super macho attitude and the religious symbolism was a little over the top.  I did love to see how all the characters from the past books played their own role in the story without taking away from the romance budding between Angelica and Jameson.  I also enjoyed seeing how the little boy I grew to love in Twilight Phantasies turned out all grown up.


  1. I love her books. I'm such a big fan.

  2. Maggie Shayne was one of my very first paranormal romance authors that I read. Her great writing is what really drew me into the genre.

  3. I'm a huge Maggie Shayne and Wings in the Night fan. My favorite parts about Jamie were his interactions with the rest of the characters, particularly Rhyannon, and as you said, it was nice to see him all grown up after having been there for the start of his story. :)

  4. Maggie Shayne was the first author to introduce me to paranormal romance with her vampire books. The Wings in the Night series is a great series.

  5. I love this series! It is my favorite series of hers and one of my top all time favorites.

  6. This series is one of my absolute favorites out there. I think I own every book in this series as well. Wish there were more of them.

  7. Love Maggie Shayne and everything she writes!!!

  8. Loved this book and the entire Twilight series.

  9. To me, Maggie Shayne created the real Twilight series, it's just for big girls. Love her books, love her vampires, I just wish there were more!
