DiID follows the story of Edie Harker, the unlikely heir of a vampire hunting legacy. She was never meant to be the Harker, but here she is being it. She's a ticking time bomb, with only moments to live. She's got the help of her cousin Carl, and a broody vampire named Jude.
The story is well paced and eventful. There isn't a lull in the middle of the book like I find in a lot of other books. Edie is a likable character as is Jude. The world building is solid as well. I never once felt like I didn't get what was going on.
Damned if I Do is a dramatic, suspensful vampire novel. It's a paranormal romance, so if you're looking for more of a horror themed vampire read then this one isn't for you. The romance is done just right. In the first 30% of the book I felt a little peeved at Jude and Edie's love. They had five months of back story that we don't get to see. So that made the romance seem a little rushed to me. I also wasn't taking Edie's sickness very seriously at that point either, and I think in life or death situations emotions run a lot higher. As the book progressed and we got to see more moments on screen with Jude and Edie my annoyance definitely faded, and I got lost in their moments together.
All in all Damned if I Do is a solid read. One that I was surprised to find myself loving, considering I'm not really all that interested in vampires.
In my opinion, what Hayes has done here is revamped (hehe, get it?) a traditional vampire and slayer story, sucked all of the delicious hemoglobin out of the main arteries, and created a whole other creature that looks familiar to us, but it’s just different enough for us to accept it and not reject it as an imposter. The underlying traditional values, strengths, and weaknesses are there, but they have been modified to give this book its very own life, unlike anything else I’ve ever read. That is a good thing. A Vampire book that can stand out from the million other Vampire stories, that all seem to say the same thing, is a rare find and worth every minute spent reading it.
“The Harker” is a vampire slayer. In Damned if I Do, this is an inherited position, passed down through the women in the family. Erin Hayes did a great job of developing a modern and unique version of slayers, while incorporating the basic traditional values and heritage into her characters. Edie never expected to become The Harker. Vampires killed her sister and then infected her with a nasty kind of bug that is probably going to kill her. I like Edie’s character. She seems like someone who has a good head on her shoulders, and knows firsthand how important family values are. She seems a little impulsive, but I suppose she probably needs to be in her line of work.Read more ›
Vampire stories are always hit or miss for me, but this one was an instant hit! I like my horror/thriller to lean more towards the dark, and I can feel this series pulling that way. There's blood, death, deception and betrayal. There's love and hate. And there's so much pain. I feel as though this first book would be appropriate for mature teens, but I also suspect that this series is about to take a turn into more adult themes.
Edie is a most powerful, though reluctant, heroine. This wasn't supposed to be her future. Her sister was the Harker, not Edie. I felt that her discomfort was one of her strongest assets. It made me sympathize with her, while also rooting her on. It was exhilarating to see her slowly embrace her strength, and to anticipate her upcoming battle. The next book is going to be EPIC!

Damned If I Do is so different and original. The idea of a vampire hunter becoming infected with a deadly virus from the very creatures she must hunt, while becoming close and relying on one of these creatures to help her seek revenge on the evil vamp who changed her life forever. This story kept me glued to the pages and I continuously wondered what new twist would be thrown in. I loved every thrilling second of it.
One last key factor in my new obsession was Jude. A hot vampire with no memory of his past that wanted nothing more than to aid a gritty, no nonsense hunter named Edie. There was something attractive about the way he looked out for her and always had a come back line that made me snicker. I definitely haven't had my fill of him. Hurry up January!
