Book Description

Erin's mystery begins here, with Alone. The four novel series continues with revelations about a vampire history spanning the ages and the globe, along with action and passion that will be familiar to fans of Kill Bill and Underworld. This is Vampires and the Life of Erin Rose.

Twenty-two-year-old Erin Rose wakes up one morning with no memory of her past. She's in a strange apartment with only one clue: a vampire bite scar on her neck.

Determined to unravel the mystery of her true identity, she contacts the Spectavi vampires, who drink synthetic blood. When they can't help her, she turns to the Sanguans, who feed on humans. Her investigation leads her deep into a centuries-old vampire war.

Erin must decide how far she's willing to go to learn the truth about her origins.

Praise for Alone

"Compelling and calling for one to keep turning the pages... thank you for renewing my faith in a good vampire story."

The action picks up after Alone, in Lion

"With the second book, Steve has built on a great foundation to really deepen the mythology and characterization. The action moves along at a really quick pace."

Hope

"If you are a fan of action Anime then this series is for you."

War

"This is a must read series. If you really like mystery and suspense I really recommend these."


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Thanks for checking out Alone. I hope you'll read it. As you get into the sequels, as the pace quickens, more secrets are revealed, and the intensity builds, you'll be glad you gave Erin's story a chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars More I can not wait for More October 9, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
From the beginning this book was a pleasant surprise. So many vampire novels of late focus upon the sexual drive and sensual nature of the vampires that at times I feel I'm reading nothing but one long drawn out romance novella or story that could be wrapped up in a matter of minutes instead of hours. The predictability of the story disappoints me and I would put the book down and move on to find something else. HOWEVER! I was pleased and very happy with Alone: Vampires and the life of Erin Rose. So much so that from the moment I started reading last night I did not put the book down till I had finished today. Minus the few hours of sleep I actually got.

Compelling and calling for one to keep turning the pages you get to see the life of Erin Rose or what she remembers what she goes through of love and loss as well as friends and her made up family before all of this. She is a marvelous young woman that you root for every time to over come what her life has put before her. All her struggles that culminate in the ultimate decision you would have never seen of her but find yourself shouting out HELL YA! and throwing your arm up in victory for her. I am so eager for the next installation of this series of books that I want to beg the author to allow me to read over his shoulder as he types just so I know what happens next. I am usually very patient but this one.. thank you is all I can say thank you for renewing my faith in a good vampire story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost, But Not Quite November 6, 2011
By JM
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a hard book to review because I know it's going to look like I'm tearing it to pieces, but I only do that with books I read that I feel have a lot of good/a lot of potential. Alone is definitely one of those books. I love stories that involve amnesia and having to investigate to find out ones identity. I also like Perlow's choice to separate out the vampires and giving them a 'who is the real bad guy?' war between them.

That being said, Alone doesn't quite make it as a favourite for a few reasons.

After the first chapter, the reader jumps two years into the future. I didn't understand the jump or even the purpose of the jump. At no point did I feel it was necessary to the plot to have that jump.

I think the matter of Erin's amnesia could have been handled better. Admittedly, in this day and age, amnesia like hers is hard to handle - especially when you want to keep the reader in the dark - but it continued to bother me throughout the book.

For example, she has a license, a lease on an apartment and a bank account - all of which you need a good amount of identifying documentation to get. If all of that had been set up for her, documents forged, officials bought off... Anything like that could have worked for the story, but those things simply weren't addressed and it didn't work at all for me. Even more so after the two year jump when she had more than enough time to find these things out.

Erin herself was a cold character. She seemed to be more vampire than the vampires with little emotions and little response to pain - even her fingers being broken. Little touches could have gone a long way to making Erin seem more human.

Yet, even with those things, I kept reading. I got sucked into the mystery and wanted to keep going. In that, Perlow did very well.

Alone, Vampires and the Life of Erin Rose by Steve Perlow
Filed under: Uncategorized by klred -- Leave a comment

A girl wakes up in a strange apartment in a strange town with no memory, not even who she is. The driver's license with her picture says her name is Erin Rose. Also, there is a vampire bite on her neck. Strange enough for you yet? It gets better.

The character of Erin Rose is unbelievably simple. She gets a job and searches for clues about her past. She has a friend and eventually a boyfriend. You only find out about what Erin is feeling as the book goes on. The mood stays at dark and mysterious, slow and quiet throughout the entire story. Steve Perlow is excellent at describing a scene and making it real in your mind without being obvious. And yet I wanted to know more about Erin. I wanted to know what she was feeling when she awoke with no memory, how lonely she was with no friends and family.

The book held my interest by not providing me with enough details. I wanted to know more. Eventually, in the last couple of chapters I did find out enough enough about Erin to make the book worth while. While I was satisfied with the ending and am looking forward to reading the next book, I do hope for more action, more plot twists, and more information about Erin Rose - where she came from and who she was.

I received this book for free in the Epub format as a part of the Library Thing giveaway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Story, I can't wait for the next one February 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
In this world, there are two kinds of vampires. The Spectavi, who drink synthetic blood, are very spiritual and advertise that they are out to protect humans from the Sanguans. The Sanguans are the bad vampires of the story that drink human blood and always kill those they feed from. The Spectavi hunt down the Sanguans and kill them for harming humans.

Erin wakes up one morning with no memory of who she is or what happened to her. She is in a white, sparse apartment with a credit card and a driver's license with the name Erin Rose on it. When she looks in the mirror, she has no memory of who she is looking at and is very self-conscious of a scar on her neck from a vampire bite.

A year and a half later, Erin has been trying to find out what happened to her. She went to the police and the Spectavi but no one can help her. So, she has taken it upon herself to go to Sanguans night clubs and ask around if anyone know what might have happened. While one the way to a club, Erin witnesses an old Sanguan killed by the Spectavi. Thinking this strange, she hunts down another Sanguan that was at the scene of the murder but was let go free.

Erin has stumbled into a war between the Spectavi and the Sanguan. Erin becomes caught in the middle when the Sanguan that is helping her find her past identifies her as a favorite human of the leader of the Spectavi. Erin goes undercover to find the truth but gets more than she was expecting.

I really liked this story. I got sucked in trying to figure out what happened to Erin. I liked how the Sanguans were defined as evil yet a lot of them really were just trying to survive like regular human. The only thing that I didn't like was how wishy-washy Erin was.
