Book Review: Living Dead Girl (The Vampire Hunter, #1)

Kindle Edition150 pages
Published April 30th 2013
by S.C. Reynolds

I am usually not one for books about the undead unless they are vampires but this one caught my eye all the same. I read it in one sitting, which is a sure sign of a good book,turning the pages, wanting to know what was going to happen till the very end. The end came before I knew it and left me wanting more. 

More review to come.......Lets rewind this review a bit, grr now I know why I don't do these often. The book is a quick read but a great read all the same. It is about a girl named Aurora Stone, who manages to crawl her way out of her grave a year to the day not knowing what had happened. Taking things rather well she seeks out her best friend Henry. Once he gets over the shock of seeing his best friend alive so to speak. They take matters into their own hands to figure out how and what is going on. Add in a mysteries stranger who knows more then he is saying causing an instant connection between Aurora and Lucas that in the end could lead to both of there deaths. Do I smell a love triangle in the making. We will have to read and see. 

I would highly recommend the book. Didn't realize there was a second book in the series so off to find that one and read it as well.

I give the book 4 out of 5 stars.

Book Review : A Shade of Vampire (A Shade of Vampire #1)

Kindle Edition 
Published December 14th 2012
By Bella Forrest

Goodreads Synopsis 
On the evening of Sofia Claremont's seventeenth birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake.
A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.
She is kidnapped to an island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine.
An island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.
Sofia's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is the one selected out of hundreds of girls to join the harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal Prince.
Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.
Will she succeed? ...or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novaks?

Wow what a book. Forgive me a moment while I gather my thoughts. 

Let me first start off saying that I am not a professional reviewer, I don't do reviews on a regular basis. But with that said I was approach to do an honest review by the author. 

I received my copy of the book some time ago as a free read through kindle. 

Now on to the review. I started the book a few hours ago and just now finished it. For me to read a book in one sitting speaks volumes on how captivating the story was. I kept turning the electronic pages needing, wanting to know what was going to happen next. 

The story of Sofia and Derek in Blood Shade spins a new tale of the vampire and human dynamic. Can they overcome their difference's? Can they protected each other from those who would do them harm? Will love prevail? In my opinion that is a resounding yes, but it won't be easy.

I would totally recommend this book and I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

I give the book 5 out of 5 stars.
