I got this book sent to me a week ago and finished it in three days.
This book is by Laurie Bowler, has a 133 pages and 27 chapters.
Marinette, Nessy, has escaped her Maker, Hervidor, King of the Undead and leader of the terrible Tellis coven. She runs into Charles and his coven and feels an immediate attraction to him. Although she doesn't want to stay, she is convinced to stay by Charles and By Herqacio, Hera, leader of the Gulons, a feline animal that is the vampires sworn enemy.
I really liked this book. I think it has a really interesting take on the vampire-stories. In most vampire books a full human is the protagonist and has to choose whether to stay with her immortal love or not. This story centers around Nessy, who is a vampire with incredible morals. The book manages to stay away from msot cliches and the writer has a skill in writing descriptively.
What I loved were the flash-backs into her human and her vampire past. The writer also aknowlegdged the fact that a bunch of vampires in a forest can't go unnoticed by the human people in the village next to it. This is something Stephenie Meyer missed, which damages the credibility of her book.
My favourite character is probably Hera. He is really funny and serious at the same time. At the beginning I worried he'd be the JAcob in this story. But I was relieved to read that he had his own lover, Melody, Charles niece. This just makes the friendship between him and NEssy credible and enjoyable.
I give this book:
If you like vampire stories you will definitly like this one. It is different and nice to read. I'm just readin the sequel, 'Sunrise to Sunset', and will post a review of that one as soon as I finished it.
