I read a description that this is “Percy Jackson meets Twilight” and I have to say this is true only in the most basics of senses...in that there is the elements of Greek God and vampires but not in the depth of the writing. (*Edit this does improve in the second book.) The story starts out awkward and on the nose with the introduction of the Protagonist. Without real spoilers.. She is a child of one of the wealthiest families in America, she likes to read and to post her status on Goodreads from her ereader, and the current book she is reading (Interview with a Vampire) just so happens to be about vampires. She just so happens to have a great fondness for Greek Gods and their lore along with Vampire lore. Funny enough she does not want to be in Greece at all, as much as she supposedly likes to read about it and how fake her “friends” in America are.
I do feel like the author forces Gerti to make the dumbest choices possible in trying to fix the problems she finds herself faced with, most of her own making. It would be like giving a seemingly bright person a knife to cut open a watermelon and they choose a sledge hammer and then wonders what went wrong. You then give them supplies to clean it up but they choose a a tea cup and fork. It makes no sense.
The redemption in the book is two fold. (1) The host family, including Hector, who takes care of Gerti. feel real, and they feel loving. When you get past the awkward beginning you do quickly come to feel the love from the family. The author does a great job with them. (2) The concept itself if of the origins of vampires within Greek mythology is awesome and seeing a few of the gods draws you in.
For some reason I feel as if the awkwardness of the this book was because the author's real story will happen in the second and third books and she just had to find away to get there.
But once she arrives in Athens and meets the family that she will be staying with and gets to know them as well as a friend of theirs Gertie falls in love with all of them and doesn’t ever want to leave. Gertie actually meets two guys, Jeno and Hector while in Athens that she really likes a lot and they both like her very much as well. The family that Gertie is staying with warns her away from Jeno though.
Athens has some secrets that they try to keep hidden from most humans. In the ancient city don’t be surprise if you run into a vampire or two or maybe even a Greek god or two as well. Jeno is a part of this secret world he is a vampire. And the family that she is staying with warns her away from Jeno for this reason. They think that vampires are nothing but tramps and if you hang with them then you must be just like them.
But Gertie likes Jeno very much and doesn’t want to lose her new friend but she doesn’t want to lose her new family either so what is a girl to do? Jeno is very addicting but she loves her new family very much. Can she have both? Her new family and Jeno? Will she have to choose between the two?
Yes Vampire Addiction is very addicting. Once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down. I think I read it in one setting. Vampire Addiction will grab you right on the first page and keep you enthralled the whole way through until the last page and beyond. I love me some vampires but throwing in Greek mythology was out of this world as I do love both. If you love vampires and Greek mythology then you are going to love this mixture of the two. Pick up your copy today and get started on this new series. I can’t wait to read the next book Vampire Affliction in The Vampires of Athens.
The main characters Gertie, Hector & all the family are completely sustain to be there.
They know where &how to move. Gertie's youngness & naive put her in some situations. For a book for YA, I fall for the story. This Indie Author is a follow her, will be better things.
I recommend the book to all ages. Shhhh. I will told you the end... NOT.
Ah, ah. Can't spoil a good book & told you everything. Jajajiji
I received this book for an honest review. You can check all my reviews & saw it. If it's good it is and this one needs a mention, put the book in the hands of your YA children, they love it.
It is bad, damn is bad, no matter what. I'm to honest as a reader & I look the same for other readers too.
Enter Jeno, a cute boy she meets upon her arrival in Athens. Her host family makes her feel more loved than her real parents ever did. Complicate matters with a hunky demigod, then finding out vampires are rampant in Athens.
I enjoyed the mix of Greek mythology, vampires and young romance/teen angst. There is a bit of a cliffhanger, but I expected that when I started this series.
A good addition to YA vampire books & much better than Twilight!
