In a world where humans and vampires live together peacefully, Lena Thresh is one of a group of students who donate blood regularly to the vampires at her school. Things get interesting when the entire schools is evacuated and rumors start of a student being murdered on school campus.

This was a clever book set in a unique universe that was very well written by first-timer J.O. Osbourne, and it's quite a debut. J.O. has a unique voice and does a great job of drawing up unique characters who grab your attention while still being easy to relate to. The story moves along at a nice pace, really sucking you in as it progresses, keeping you guessing as to what exactly is going to happen. A great short story I would definitely recommend.

Vampires are all the rage, maybe it's the fantasy, or maybe it's the romance, whatever it is this book nails it. Not to be confused as a Twilight clone, this book has an original and enthralling story line. The book follows Lena, the main character, as she grows into adult hood, in the presence of vampires. In the fantasy society vampires are simply men with a mutated "Y" chromosome... except as the story progresses you see this is not always true. Packed with action, adventure, romance and sadness this book is a great read. The plot moves quickly and introduces new aspects to the story line you would never expect in a vampire book (a dying father, a murder, well I won't ruin all the fun, there are a lot of twists). Buy it on the kindle, it's a long book and the bookmark function makes it easy to remember where you left off, plus its super easy to read where ever you are as you can always read it on the computer via the kindle cloud reader.

Bag of Blood by J.O. Osborne
This was a nice easy read and I enjoyed it very much. It was a totally different vampire, with blood donors, good guys, bad guys, sweet at times and heart wrenching at times. Didn't foresee any of the challenges which was a good change for me. I would recommend.

This was a great book that I read a few days ago. In the world of vampire stories, books like these are refreshing, and very enjoyable to read.

J. O. Osborne's BAG OF BLOOD is an unusual vampire tale set just a few years in the future. In Osborne's world, vampires are accepted members of society - or accepted high school students, I should say. Osborne's vampires are born that way - they aren't made that way by other vampires. There's none of the traditional vampire lore here - no stakes through the heart, upside down crosses, garlic, or coffins (no "sparkling," either!). These vampires are pretty much like regular teenagers . . . except they drink blood. Sixteen-year-old Lena Thresh donates blood each month to help feed two of her vampire classmates (and to earn money for college). Gabriel is a bit on the scary side, and he hangs out with two human girls who aren't too happy with Lena; they want Gabriel all to themselves. But Elliot is a different story - he's tall and blond and gorgeous and Lena can't help but feel attracted to him. At the same time, Lena's not exactly overflowing with confidence, and things at home are hard (her father is having open heart surgery, her mom is working herself to death trying to pay all the bills, and things aren't looking too bright for the future). When girls suddenly start dying and disappearing, the police suspect a vampire is behind it - could it be Gabriel? Could it be Elliot?

BAG OF BLOOD is really more teen mystery/romance than it is vampire story. There's something very tame and down to earth about the vampires in this novel - even crazy Leslie, the only female vampire among the group, never seems particularly dangerous. There are descriptions of fangs that grow longer when their owners are hungry, and there are a few close calls for Lena, but there's nothing really scary here.

I'm a grandmother and I read some pretty wild stuff and wasn't expecting anything great, just something quick and light. This is a teen book but I couldn't put it down, a very interesting premise and a better explanation of vampires than TWILIGHT. I'm reccomending it to my grandaugthers.
