More About the Author

A military brat as a child, VJ Erickson has lived across the country, from Washington state to South Carolina and many places between. He spent a number of his elementary and middle school years riding his bike and playing make-believe in the woods surrounding a small village in Germany and now still feels the itch to travel abroad.

He loves hanging out with his dog Toby, watching the Food Network then trying (occasionally succeeding) to make up his own recipes, and urban gardening.

I started reading this with high hopes and expectations because it was recommended on Amazon as being similar to richelle meads vampire academy series, which, even as an adult, is still one of my favorite series ever.

Maybe that was the problem. I know how hard authors work and hate leaving poor reviews, but I have to be honest, my hopes were WAY too high.

While the story initially grabbed my attention, within a few chapters I was over it. I did finish it, just because I thought it might get better, but meh. The heroine, whose name I can't even remember is self centered and whiny. The two vampire brothers in a field reminded me too much if vampire diaries. The introduction of other magical creatures, like gargoyles and leprechauns was an interesting idea, but poorly executed. The story was pretty cliche. And the villain was ,completely obvious and almost non-existent until the anti-climatic showdown at the end.

It's clear the author has some raw talent and potential with interesting ideas, but this just didn't hit the mark for me, and I will not be continuing the series.

This is a great book that I could share with my 15 year old daughter too... It was refreshingly different to have the blood reverse the vampire disease ... My daughter loved it as well... It's a wonderful thing when a author can provide something a mother and daughter can both bond over ...

Did not even finish the book....very juvenile. Plot is very slow at first then, WAM out of no where one of the characters goes bonkers. Character development is mediocre. I usually finish every book I read, but could not bring myself to finish this one.

I picked Vampire University up as a kindle freebie from amazon a long while ago but only recently got around to reading it. Taylor lost both her parents when she was a child so growing up was tough now she’s ready to start her freshman year of college at VanCamp University. Her roommate is super outgoing and a little on the weird side but not in a bad way. She also right off the bat encounters the Evans brothers one is desperate to get to know other the other wants her to stay away from his brother.

When Taylor accepts a date with Eric she is surprised when he takes her for sandwiches in a secluded place at school. What should be a chance to know each other quickly turns dangerous when Eric’s sinister motives come out. When he kidnaps the RA it’s up to Taylor to save her but she learns that there is more going on at VanCamp that just trying to pass school. She also learns that her roommate knows more than she’s letting on. Will Taylor survive her first year of school or not make it to her first class.

I liked Taylor she’s an ok character but not my favorite of them all. I found myself liking Hannah there was just something about her that made me smile. I also liked Tom and Joseph even though they aren’t as key of players but I would hope to see more of them in the series. In the first book Taylor hasn’t had a lot of time to grow as a character but I see lots of potential for growth as she learns more about who she is.

I picked this one up as a kindle freebie a while back. The synopsis captured my attention right away. The concept is interesting it's just the story is a not boring. It all happened so far over a few days I felt that I didn’t have time to connect with the characters or for them to grow like I would have liked.

Ok book I was able to read through the whole thing, and it has a nice quick pace, so I didn't feel that it dragged or got boring, that said the storyline really didn't inspire me to want to bother with the rest of the series.

The story has some interesting details that just doesn't quite come together. The characters were a little flat. I started to like Taylor the main female role in the story but I just didn't get enough of her personality to tell if I actually liked her. She was the most developed character in the story. Because of some intriguing new twist on vampires and other magical creature I believe there is potential in a sequel to this book. There wasn't a good romance in this story that I felt was really lacking. I liked the twin brother Joseph right away for her but then there was nothing. After discovering Tom's secret he sounds like a potential boyfriend material. There wasn't a good connection between any of the characters, I just wouldn't care if any of these people saw each other again. The strongest relationship seemed to be the brothers but by the end that seemed one-sided. With a little more character development and some real relationship bonds the next story could be really good. Maybe if Taylor and Joseph have a stronger bond that will put a strain on the brothers relationship. Tom and her roommate could complete a set of four really close friends, with the possibility of her and Joseph getting together. One last thing a better villian, someone that actually strikes fear in everyone but is also very cleaver at manipulating people.

Not bad for a first book. I would read a sequel with the hopes of potential improvement.

Vampire University was short and quick. I expected a bit more from this novel, but nonetheless, it was good enough for a one-time read.

The story was interesting and the moment I started it, I was eager to read more. It had my full interest for a while but the pace was just so faaaaaaaaaaaast! One moment Taylor is entering the VanCamp University and in the next she has already started fighting the main villain of the story. It was good but I wish there was some more...material in it.

Taylor came off as a snob in the beginning, quite frankly. But later when she she developed her powers, I started liking her. Hannah was my favourite character in this book. She seemed to be the most sensible of all and I would definitely love to read about her story.

Though there was no romance in this book, the action was plenty. I didn't even realize I'd finished the book until I'd actually finished it. Overall, this would be enjoyed by vampire-lovers since it provides another fresh outlook on our dear blood-suckers but I would definitely not prefer to spend my money on such a short story, which is why I bought it for free on Amazon. :)
