This was a fast and fun read!
Lucy has moved to New Orleans in hopes of finding some clue to the father she never knew and still knows nothing about.Soon enough she learns what her father was if not who, and joins up with a team of vampire hunters. While she hates killing anyone she'll kill to stop others from killing.
Not all vampires are blood-eaters though and many do not even know they are vampires. We even meet a vegetarian vampire. However, there are plenty of evil ones out there including a race of super-vampires who are cruel killers and need to be stamped out if they can't be reformed. But can one small New Orleans team and one small Paris team even manage to put a dent in them?
I thoroughly enjoyed the thriller build-up of this yarn as well as the diverse characters. Lucy is smart, cute, and strong willed. And the story is well-paced. In fact, it almost moves too quickly.
The book is a definite go for people who enjoy the genre and anyone looking for a fast and furious read! The author does hint at a sequel, but the book also works as a stand-alone.

I was lucky enough to get this 1st book in the series for free on its promotional day at Amazon.com along with its prequel 'Dissonant'.

Little did Lucy realize what her world would become when she traveled to New Orleans in search of a father she never knew. Author, Christina McMullen, not unlike a fabled alchemist, skilfully weaves a tale that mixes science, technology and vampire lore, then adds a dash of romance to pull off this exciting tale that sets Lucy on a journey that would challenge every last one of her insecurities, and call upon every strength that she possesses.

Lucy is catapulted into a world where genetic engineering of minds and bodies, vampires style, are running rampant and along with a strong cast of characters at her side, she takes on her dangerous new role as someone that might just be able to make a dent in the incredibly dangerous and murderous elite vampire organization known as The Eyes Of The Sun.

I totally became enraptured with Lucy's character and personality as she 'found' herself and what she was 'cut out' to become and couldn't wait to read what decisions she would make about love and battle.

Thrilled to be along for the ride with her, I was amazed time and again with the kind of details that made me feel the author did her due diligence as I was taken on an explosive quest that didn't let me go until the very last pages.

I highly recommend this book for all fangsters!

I liked this book, a lot! It has a lot going for it. Interesting characters, check. Engaging dialogue, check. Likable main character, check. Cool premise, check. A sense of humor, check. Does it stand out from the crowd of other vampire fiction, triple check! Eyes of the Sun hits every point on my like-o-meter and then some.

Vampires
So vampires are a thing here, yes, but they are not at all what you think they are. I'll leave the explanation to the author. But it's interesting because it's all influenced by biology and evolution. Run of the mill humans are more similar to vampires than one would think. Some humans have even evolved an enzyme inside of their blood that can prove harmful or even fatal to vampires as a biological deterrent to getting preyed upon. So when they're getting the life drained out of them by one of the bloodsuckers they can pull a Call of Duty 'Martyrdom' type move and drop the proverbial grenade on their vampiric foes to get the last laugh. Vampires also come in different breeds here. Some have been genetically modified to possess stronger vampire traits and some, the highest in the social order, are inbred from ancient families to achieve a purity in their bloodlines. Whatever form of vampire you have they're all stronger, faster, and more agile than humans.

But...

The humans have technology.
That reminds me of the awesome F2P multiplayer game Nosgoth which is based around this very concept. Vamps have the powers but humans have the tools. The humans in question here are members of the EJC, which I'll admit is a slight spoiler for like the first three chapters.

This was a well written story! Not your normal vampire story. And, the "romance" part of the story was kept to a minimum, so it wasn't overly "too much". I don't care for romance books at all!! I look forward to the next book which will continue the main character's new career path to see where it takes her.

This book started out somewhat exciting. Then it got bogged down with an info dump, world building, combat training and the introduction of a lot of characters. The action would pick up then more characters and a lengthy info dump.

I enjoyed this author's different take on vampires. The combination of genetic manipulation and the use of technology was also interesting and different.

The protagonists were likeable enough, and the villains wickedly evil. There was very little romance, no sex and some torture. The story wrapped up sufficiently, but also left room for a sequel. I didn't love this book, nor did I dislike it. I can't say that I was so invested in the story or characters that I would buy the sequel, but maybe.
