Format: Paperback
Okay, I am going to do a bit of gushing. I was first introduced to Kailin Gow's work with The Phantom Diaries, which I instantly fell in love with. I then went on to read Bitter Frost, which I greatly enjoyed and now with her newest series, The Stoker Sisters, Ms. Gow has won a place in my heart and library as one of my absolute favorite authors. Her ability to take a well-known classic story (in this case Bram Stoker's Dracula) and create an amazing story which includes bits and pieces of the original well-known stories, intertwining them with her own mind-blowing imagination and creating a "what-if" scenario that will leave the reader racing through pages to see what happens next, is magnificent.

The Stoker Sisters: Daughters of Dracula, is the first in a new series which focuses on two sisters, who are as different as night and day. There is the innocent and very "human" younger sister, Sadie, and then there is the bit older and very non-innocent and seductress-y sister, Alexis. Both are vampires, Sadie turned to saved her life, while Alexis turned on her own will. Sadie does everything in her power to lead a normal life, not becoming the monsterious stereotypical vampire by feeding and murdering, but choosing her food sources while trying to clean up the lesser desirables of the world - though never going as far as draining and killing them. Alexis, however, takes her feeding too far one night, draining a victim and becoming a vampire who must constantly feast, draining and leaving victims dead in her wake.

As if being a vampire isn't difficult enough, Sadie falls for a handsome boy in school, Keegan. She must deal with her sister trying to sink her fangs into Keegan, while at the same time watching as her sister tries everything in her power to seduce him.

Although the book is nothing new or original; I found it to be very enjoyable. The two sisters are unaware of their bloodline and are complete opposites as far as personalities go; yet, they can't be without eachother. The two sisters argue over just about everything...then when they find they have both fallen for a vampire hunter....then their boyfriend from the past returns it becomes rather interesting and the sisters must make some choices. I am looking forward to the next book.

Format: Paperback
Meet Sadie and Alexis. Two sisters who could not be more different. Sadie, the calm, rational one, longs to be as much like a human as she can. Alexis, on the other hand, is Sadie's completely opposite. She adores the fact that she has been turned and does everything to live in the moment... which usually ends up costing her.

Daughters of Dracula is a highly addictive novel that completely took me by surprise. With its references to Romanian mythology and Victorian society, readers are introduced to an completely different side of the typical Dracula vampire story. With Gow and her tale, everything seems more realistic... well, as realistic as it can get when you are discussing vampires. Sadie and Alexis are some of the best characters that I have seen in a while. And readers are sure to be picking sides in this sibling rivalry.

While there are some slower parts and questionable scenes for younger readers, Daughters of Dracula is a promising start to what I hope will be an outstanding series. Gow takes the old Dracula legend and completely turned it on its head.

Format: Paperback
I love the whole premise of this series. The sisters are the last remaining descendant of Vlad Dracule. This one really stood out, Although this isn't the first novel I've read about vampires, the story is definitely unique and well done. Plus it has that whole sible rivalry going on, which is something that I can't get enough of for some reason. Things definitely get heated when you add a cute guy.

I really like the elements in the story like in Vampire Academy the evil vamps are Strigios, and it's the same for The Stoker Sisters. Sadie and Alexis struggle to keep what's left of there humanity and lay low on the radar from Hunters...but with Sadie, it's pretty hard when you have a sister who is sometimes just evil! Lol

Sadie is a really well developed character and as a reader you can't help but get caught up in the emotional battle that she struggles with throughout this novel. Sadie's character has a very compelling and relatable voice, and I think readers will automatically like her. I know I did. Alexis spices up the novel...because the things she does just get on Sadie's nerves. And the boys in this novel, wow. They are definitely Mr. Darcy material...,and read Austen....hot right?

I enjoyed the story, it `s like the girl version of Vampire Diaries(Sadie is Stefan and Alexis is Damon) meets The Prophecy of the Sisters. It was excellently written and there were plenty of twists and turns to keep you on you toes. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!

Rating 4.5 of 5 stars
