Book Description

Lexi Hawthorne's world is turned upside down when a virus sweeps across the world stranding Lexi halfway across the country from her family. She goes into hiding, and after two years, she is forced to face the new world as she tries to make her way back to her family. Her journey home becomes dangerous when she finds out the truth. Some of the people that survived the initial virus were changed to something more vampire-like than human. While on this journey, she finds love in an unlikely place and their love is put to the test when it comes to her family.

Enjoy this excerpt from the book:

Andrew looked at me asking what to do with his eyes. “Please… let ... him.” It was all I could get out. I was in so much pain and my body was starting to convulse with chills. I must be going into shock like Ryder said. I saw Andrew and Ryder talking, but I couldn't hear them anymore, my hearing was fading as unconsciousness grew inevitable. Andrew gave Ryder a nod and Ryder bit into his own wrist. I saw his bloody wrist approaching my mouth as everything around was fading to black. I held on as I tasted the salty blood enter my mouth and swallowed it down. I took a few more gulps as I stared up into Ryder's blue eyes.
“That’s it, drink as much as you can.” Ryder said. I took a few more gulps before I passed out.

I wasn't sure if I was going to like the book from the summary. Once I started reading I couldn't put the story down. Absolutely loved. When is the next book coming out?

5.0 out of 5 stars When will we get the second book?! November 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is worth your time. A few pages in, and I was hooked. It is an easy read that keeps you interested with the romance action and suspense. Lexi is a likable character who has determination to find her family- even though there are dangerous vampires everywhere. I could not put this book down and as I finished I wished that the second book is already out. Anxiously waiting for your second book Lisa!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book! October 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just couldn't put it down once I started. I'm so anxious to read the second book. If you have seen Twilight and you loved it, then you are going to love this book. The main character's choices she has to make are what any girl in her position would do. Her first love, Andrew, that's what it is....first love. The relationship she has with her second interest, Ryder, is being built on mutual trust and love. Maybe more on his side, but she realizes that Ryder would die for and protect at all cost. She is a very strong character sometimes too naive, but all in all I I'm glad I met her. Her loyalties are to be admired, and her tenacity also. It's what has kept her alive when humans were infected by a virus and began a society much like the vampires. At least she also has the loyalty of Rick, Ryder's uncle Caude's man. Claude is the leader of this Northwestern faction trying to unite all the others. Up to know Claude has let her live because of his nephew Ryder, but one false step and all could change.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good read! July 22, 2013
By Chris
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I very much enjoyed this book. The book lends a different and interesting point of view of a virus that has killed much of the human population. Those people immune have either remained human or have changed into blood thirsty beings. Is this new race of vampires capable of being more then just killers? Lisa explores the relationship between vampires and humans as both populations try desperately to live in this new world the plague has created. I look forward to reading more from Lisa Hall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite the first novel! July 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed following Lexi Hawthorne through her post-viral apocalypse trials. She was a college student when the outbreak occurred, and was stuck in her dormitory far away from her home. Forced to brave the elements of a newly rearranged society and the unknown, she and her friends persevere and survive but Lexi is missing two important people in her life, her mother and brother. In her attempts to reunite with her family in Texas, she faces many challenges and new faces, including some of those that have been affected by the virus. This story flows well, better than many I have read on the top 100 list, some of which are on the top 10! Not lacking on romance, action, and suspense, this story is a definite must read! An excellent choice in a great YA fantasy novel, Lisa Hall has outdone herself with her first installment in The Blood Ties Series! I am eagerly anticipating and look forward to the rest of this series! Great job Lisa!
