Book Description

New Orleans certainly has no shortage of vampire legends and Lucy Soriano was sure she had heard them all. But after a date with a handsome stranger takes a deadly turn, Lucy learns that the truth is more terrifying than fiction, and that the real monsters are not the creation of vivid imaginations, but evolutionary advantage.
After surviving the attack that should have killed her, Lucy is recruited into an elite organization of vampire hunters and learns that vampires are not the only ones with evolution on their side. But despite her own mysterious genetics, Lucy is not a soldier and vampire hunting does not come naturally. Her dangerous improvisations are quickly called out by Andre Garnier, a hunter who makes no secret of the fact that he is opposed to Lucy's recruitment. Adding to her worries is The Eyes of The Sun, the oldest and most dangerous collective of vampires, who are once again gaining ground and have infiltrated the very organization that is trying to stop them.
Now, Lucy and Andre are forced to work together. Not only to keep New Orleans safe, but to stay alive.
Unfortunately, The Eyes of The Sun have an agenda that no one was expecting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your grandma's vampire story December 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A different and interesting take on vampires December 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fangtastic! September 14, 2014
By Turhan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Different kind of vampire story! February 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cool Story January 2, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the story enough to finish it despite the typos and continuity errors, so that's really saying something. It moves quickly with things happening and being revealed left and right, so it kept my interest and I never once wondered it when it was going to be over. I liked the main character and all the other characters, with the exception of the love interest… that is a bit of a problem, but maybe it was just me. Most of the issues were small, like '"I'm off to check in at the office and then I'm going to bed." Miles worked third shift, so he had just come off of work.' Why is he going to check in when he just got off of work? There were a lot of things like this, and even some bigger ones like how does a person grow into adulthood without ever knowing she has super healing abilities to the point that a life threatening injury will heal in moments? The book really needs some good beta readers and a couple of revisions and it could easily be major publishing house quality book. It has all the elements of a main stream pop paranormal story, including romance that isn't too overwhelming.
I enjoyed it despite its unfinished state, so you might too, but don't expect something that feels like a polished novel.
Language: Mild to moderate.
Sexual Content: Just some kissing.
Violence: Lots of fighting and blood, even some torture.
Over-All Plot/Message: Lots of potential and a cool world that just needs some work to get it up to par.
