I have to say I quite liked her writing style. It's witty and light and quite humorous. Her characters are delightful , well thought out and realistic. I started this book and by page two I was hooked and found myself turning page after page. My one and only complaint was the length . I am not one for short stories , for I think it takes a seriously talented author to pack a great story in so few pages. Now Ms. McMinimy has what it takes , the story although short did not lack in any area. I do believe if she combined a few of the books in the series that they would fare better. But as I am severely judgemental when it comes to short stories it just may be only me that feels this way.
On to the story and characters.....
First an foremost the story itself is an amazing one , add in amazing characters and BAM ! You have a phenomenal book. Sophia is an exceptional leading lady . I love that she has a fierce side and a playful side. She's quite quirky and cute. Then we have her background which I find absolutely intriguing . Throw in a hot steamy, totally swoonworty vampire named Dante and BOOM ! This story hits the next level.
From Beginning to end this story drags you in and doesn't want to let go. Your in for one heck of a ride with Magen McMinimy's Blood Claim.
Also, the characters all speak with one voice. There is really no difference in anyone's speaking parts.
However, I still enjoyed the book and am just assuming these things are because Ms. McMinimy is a novice self published author. I could be wrong but I liked another book of hers and intend to read more.
Sophia is not your normal vampire. She is the half blood princess, that most people don't think really exists. She is on the run from her brother and ex, while trying to save "the ancestor" from one of her brothers. I loved most of the characters, Irad and Kara, mostly. But every story needs someone to hate. I can't wait to read the other books in this series. Magen is becoming one of my new favorite authors, that I will buy anything she writes. I'm hooked!!
As I started reading this book I was intrigued by the way we learned about each individual character and the detail we were given. I instantly fell in love with Sophia and enjoyed the pop in the love scenes. I got so into the story that I was very upset when it just ended. I do not think that it ended well and I was glad that I had the other books to continue the story. There was plenty of action and love intermixed to make a wonderfully intriguing story. I would recommend this book but only if you have the first 4 books with it because in my opinion it didn't really end it just paused. I am glad to see that it was edited however there are still errors that are occasionally distracting.
Aparently I must have gotten this book when it was free but I was reading from a reviewer copy from the author.
