Review

"Vampire Shift will leave you on the edge of your seat, gripping your Kindle." Paranormal Wasteland Book Reviews

"I recently read an article about Tim O'Rourke and how his books are said to rival Stephanie Meyer's work. The cover alone drew me in and after I began reading, I simply couldn't put the book down." Abibliophobic Book Reviews

"O'Rourke weaves together a story of horror and romance in this first book of the series, and I cannot wait for the sequel to release. I highly recommend this novel to all readers, both young and old alike. Five stars to this magnificent novel." Abookvaction Book Reviews

"The entire time while reading this I had goosebumps all over and many times nearly jumped out of my seat with fright. This book is not for the faint of heart I can assure you. Horror fans be warned, you will love this!" Books4Tomorrow Books Reviews

Let me start by saying that when I first read the synopsis for Vampire Shift I was a little leery. I mean it's talking about police work, crime scenes, murder investigations, the main chic is a cop...To say that my Urban Fantasy radar was going off is a bit of an understatement.

More like there was a four alarm siren in my head, bleeding my brain through my ears, screaming Don't do this to yourself!! You don't like Urban Fantasy/CSI type books!

But....I gave it a go anyways...and it was AWESOME!!

Ok so this is NOT another one of those UR genre books. Nope you don't find yourself sucked into a world of boring police paperwork, trying to solve a murder, while the big bad heroine chic runs around kicking butt, and saving the world. Don't ask me why but those kinds of book tend to bore me half to death...Chinese water torture might even be more preferable in those cases.

In fact this "big bad chic" gets her butt handed to her on more than one occasion;)

Vampire Shift will leave you on the edge of your seat, gripping your Kindle. No emotions are left behind here. Tim O'Rourke makes sure to paint a picture that will not only make you swoon for his characters, but leave you utterly TERRIFIED of the dark. Jumping every time the cats start stampeding through the house in the middle of the night. Even for the not-at-all-religious wishing you had a bottle of holy water & a crucifix to sleep with. Maybe even praying for one;)

Keira's character is well done and fleshed out. YES she has a tough girl facade. YES she is basically a mess with a death wish at times. But it works for her. I love that she is all snark and attitude slaps in the face, even after she finds out that she is up against things of nightmares, that can very well kill you.

Lately, I've hit a bit of a slump in finding books that appealed to me. I've been staring books that I end up stopping because they don't grab me, I don't feel I can relate, it's poorly written or all of the above. I recently read an article about Tim O'Rourke and how his books are said to rival Stephanie Meyer's work. Needless to say, I was pretty intrigued and decided to check out Vampire Shift, the first in the Kiera Hudson series by Tim O'Rourke. The cover alone drew me in and after I began reading, I simply couldn't put the book down.

Vampire Shift follows a 20-year-old Kiera who just graduated from the police academy. Upon graduation, she volunteers to be stationed in the small English town of The Ragged Cove. This costal town has a bad reputation for the number of murders that have been occurring over the past few years. Once she arrives in the town, she thinks that she may have gotten herself into a very strange situation. With her special gift of sight, she is a very thorough policewoman and sees clues that no one else seems to be able to see. After her run-in with a vampire at her second crime scene, Kiera begins to question her fellow policemen and her own past. Complete with crucifixes, graveyards and holy water, this story will definitely have you guessing!

I really loved reading this book. First and foremost, this was a very well written novel. O'Rourke did not over do his descriptions or introductions into his own, different vampire world. He gave you as a reader just enough to understand what was going on, but not enough to keep you from trying to figure out the mystery behind this little, seaside town and it's inhabitants. Also, O'Rourke didn't overplay the romance in this novel.

The mood is dark throughout this book, and the vampires are not the pretty kind that is popular today. Vampires are scary in this book.

We see Kiera trying to solve the murders that are occurring in a small remote town. Kiera is suppose to have an exceptional gift when it comes to seeing clues that normal people tends to dismiss as inconsequential and putting the pieces together in a flash of brilliance...very much like Sherlock Holmes. When Kiera first demonstrated her abilities at the first crime scene, I was actually pretty excited. I love Sherlock Holmes and to read about a female modern sleuth (in a supernatural setting) would be great.

This ability of Kiera is what should make the her a great new addition in the world of urban fantasy heroine, however, this is where the failing of the plot is most noticeable. I was rather disappointed that Kiera didn't exhibit her brilliant deduction skill and stumble around blindly throughout most of the case. In the end, she became just another damsel in distress, and her talent was left at the way side.

However, I can only assume the reason why Kiera made these rookie mistakes is because she is, after all, a rookie. So hopefully in the next installment she would actually utilize her skills more.

This is a great series! Finally a new original vampire idea! With each book the plot just gets better and better. Just when you think you have it figured out you realize you don't!

I really like this book! Kiera is a new cop who gets stationed in a small town that has a lot of weird things happening.
I enjoyed this book... The beginning was a little slow then it got really great but, then it just ended but, I won't be stopping on series. I have faith this series will be as great!!
