Gemtastic Series: The Crusade Series

Hello Gemmies! Now that more of us are staying home, I thought it would be fun to feature completed series that you can binge right now in their chronological reading order. This weeks feature is the gemtastic Crusade Series by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié.

I remember when I first read this trilogy back in 2010, it knocked me off my feet. It may actually be time for a re-read! The Cursed Ones aka Vampires have declared war against humanity and only a handful of rebels have pledged to stand against them in an attempt to save humanity. Make no mistake these are not friendly sparkly vampires. This series is so much fun and chock full of vampires, witches, werewolves, and more! We follow 18 year old Jenn, and a rag tag cast of characters as they train to become hunters in the Vampire War. Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié have created a detailed world full of complex characters, monster history and hierarchy. There are plenty of bloody battles, betrayal, love, friendship, action, and adventure to keep you turning pages well into the night.


Here is the chronological reading order to help get you started.


  • Crusade

  • Damned

  • Vanquished


All of these gems are published by Simon Pulse and are available for purchase from all major booksellers. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I did. If you have already read this series let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment below. Happy Reading!
