More About the Author
I've been writing since childhood, but earned my bachelor's degree in psychology and my master's in English literature. When I'm not writing, I'm a straight-laced English teacher at a two-year college in Detroit. I've been married to Mr. Right for over twenty-five years. I also have three teenaged children: a boy and two girls, all of whom have threatened to never speak to me again if I turn them into characters and put them into my books.

I had high hopes for this when I started reading it. I was looking forward to the friendship and the romance. I was disappointed. I usually love reading vampire books. This one just didn't keep my interest, I found it boring at times.
Once Starla and Jordan become vampires they quickly realize it's not what they thought it would be. Jordan soon leaves Starla so she can serve the oldest most powerful vampire in the city. Starla roams the lonely streets at night deciding whether or not she wants to complete the transformation by feeding. Along the way she meets and falls in love with vampire hunter.
This book was unique in some ways and it had a good story line but it fell flat. It started off slow and I thought it would pick up but it just never really developed into anything. I liked Mercer and the little vampire that Starla becomes friends with. I just wished that their story lines would have developed. I felt that the ending came to quickly. It felt rushed to me.
I have read Uncommon Magic by Michelle Scott and loved it. I will continue to read more books by her though. With authors, there are some books you love and some not so much.
This e-book was given to me as a review copy. This did not affect my review in any way.
Okay hoping I'm working this spoiler thing right! I thought that her descriptions were so very beautifully done, and were very orginal. When the character was feeling something there was a comparison that fit very well. I really enjoyed the humorous yet cynical bond between Starlet who is the main character and her new relationship with the tiny child vampire Maybel. I thought that the author had different quirks for her vampires. That her main character was different in teh aspect that she wanted to become a vampire then became one that she realized that this new life style wasn't fully what she thought it would be. I liked seeing that the character realized the mistakes of her actions. I wish the main character, Starlet, was a smig more stronger with her personality since she was able to crush a table with her hands I don't mean strength. I liked the the vampires were seen as beasts and could beome lazy. However with all this good things I did have a couple of problems. I wish that there was a chapter or a preface before chapter one. I kind of just felt a little dropped into the story, a little too much was left to let grow. There was a couple of typos in the story. I almost wish this story was in first person to get a little more in Starlet's head, since her, her best friend Jordan who she is searching and trying to understand throughout the book, in addition to the love interest Mercer are all growing a little bit. The characters still seemed a little flip floppy. I read this almost all in one day so it is a quick fun read, it takes a little bit to pick up, but the ending was interesting. I literally laughed though when Starlet is beign stubborn and trying to avoid drinking blood from a human and tries a rat, I just thought back to the movie "Interview with a Vampire".
This story rates between a 1 and a 1.5. It was very unique...but in an peculiar way. It was kind of like Twilight meets I Am Legend.
If you do not like the YA genre, then this is not the book for you. With that said, I am not a fan of the YA so I struggled reading this book. The premise of the story seems a bit too immature for an adult audience. Starla and her friend Jordan become vampires so that they can be wealthy and glamorous but the story opens with the two friends standing outside of Jordan former childhood home; now kicked out and homeless because of her new vampiric state. The two Blood Sisters resign themselves to their new status and go looking for their first "meal" as vampires. They stumble upon a house with a former classmate who was reviled by Jordan because he used her sexually and then threw her away. A midnight snack and revenge at the same time...two birds, one stone. Perfect, right? Wrong, the girls' effort is thwarted by a usurper. He stole their meal and drained their first meal dry...taking away the opportunity for a meal and revenge. Darn!
Poor girls...now, what are they gonna do, it's not like they can pick up blood in aisle thirteen at their local grocer. Nope, they have to figure out another food source. They continue their hunting and wind up at a local nightclub. They target a young girl, a doppelgänger for Starla according to Jordan, as their victim. The girls have their first food fight, literally, as the battle over who will win the quarry. Their first attempt of food acquiry ends in an epic failure. Their young victim escapes them while they are fighting each other over who gets to draw first blood. Starla's "twin" runs back into the club shrieking and the girls end up hungry...still.Read more ›
