Review: OK, first off, I didn’t realize this was a vampire book. I, personally, have had issues with the idea of a “Christian” vampire book. HOWEVER, I’ve read Tracey Bateman’s books before and thoroughly enjoyed them, so I wanted to give her the opportunity to change my mind. Which I am happy to say she did! Though, I’m still not sure how I feel about vampire books, I did enjoy this book immensely.
The author did a great job of drawing me into the story. The author allows you to solve the mystery along with the protagonist. I found myself not only trying to figure out who was involved in the killings in this small Missouri town but the whys. As Amede reflects on her long life and her family, she struggles with her urges and her desire to find her half sister, Eden. It was intriguing to watch her character develop throughout the story.
To say the least, I found this story intriguing on many levels. I’ve not read any other vampire stories or watched the Twilight movies, so whether the author stays true to the vampire mythology I don’t know. What I do know is this story was really well written and I enjoyed it more than I expected. If you have someone in your life who is into vampires, this might be a good book for them to read. There are definite Christian themes in the story, that aren’t too overbearing, to scare off those who are anti-Christian.
