I loved this book! It starts right off with a bang & just keeps going. Dr. Carrie Ames is turned to a vampire by accident one night in the morgue, and ends up w/ a blood tie to a very evil vampire. There is a bit of graphic sex, but it ties into the story instead of just trying to add some sex to the story. What I really liked was it actually had an ending/conclusion. So many books leave you with questions or frustration over a weak ending. I have also read the 2nd book in the series Possession, and it was just as good, if not better. Even left me misty eyed at the end. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
Let me just say that this book will definitely fool you. It has such a promising beginning... the story of becoming a vampire from a newbie perspective which I really enjoyed. The problem is, about halfway through this book, the writer decided, "Let's not write fiction... let's write about my life and my own personal disappointments and veil them as a sexually charged yet empty vampire story!"
My suggestion is that if you really are into stories of people who just can't seem to fall in love unless it's either with a self loathing man who still loves his wife and specifically tells you he doesn't love you or with a truly evil, yet needy, blood-thirsty killer, this book is sooo for you. If you really want a good, action-packed, supernatural love story, stick with Kelley Armstrong.
Are you a doctor who smokes, or a doctor who can't shake off the text book warnings of blood born pathogens? Pick one.
I couldn't get into the heroine, because frankly I don't think she was even into herself. I didn't get the whole creepy attraction to the eyeball-less pedophile, and if that kid is your son why are you letting him peddle his blood out to random vampires?
There's just so much going on here that I don't get. There is no chemistry, plenty of self-loathing, and the sex wasn't even that great.
Fantastic first book in a new series. Dr. Carrie Ames realizes she is turning into a vampire after being attacked while working. She seeks the help of Nathan Grant and discovers she must make a choice: either side with her sire, the most evil vampire on earth, or join the movement.
This was a very good book. I really enjoyed it, the story keep you captivated.
I'm no coward. I want to make that perfectly clear. but after my life turned into a horrow movie, I take fear a lot more seriously now. I finally became Dr. Carrie Ames just eight months ago. then I was attacked in the hospital morgue by a vampire. Just my luck.
So now I'm a vampire, and it turns out I have a blood tie to the monster who sired me. The tie works like an invisable leash and I'm bound to him no matter what I do. And of course he's one of the most evil vampires on earth. With my sire hell-bent on turning me into a souless killer and his sworn enemy set to exterminate me, things couldn't get much worse-except I'm attracted to them both.
Drinking blood, living as an immortal demon and being a pawn between two warring vampire factions isn't exactly how I'd imagined my future. But as my father used to say, the only way to conquer fear is to face it. So that's what I'll do. Fangs bared.
