Dale Mayer added the last chapter of Book 1, Vampire in Denial, to the beginning of Vampire in Distress. This allows the reader to remember where Book 1 left off if/he is not reading one right after the other. I think this is a very good strategy.
Book 2 transitioned very well from Book 1, picking up exactly where it left off. Where is Tessa? She is not where they left her. Where could she have gone? Thus, Book 2 starts out trying to find Tessa. The “team” delves further into the blood bank, trying to stay together, because they have found if they break off into smaller groups, people go missing. Will this start a war? Who is involved? Can they trust anyone?
At one point it appears everyone gets strung up to the machines. What they don’t know is that the bad guys, whoever they are, also have mind altering drugs. There are many battles which make the book a quick and easy read.
I downgraded Vampire in Distress one star is as there are some points of in the book where the scene is over described to the point of wanting to skim to see what is going to happen next. In my opinion, the writing style of Dale Mayer is YA(Young Adult).
I purchased Vampire in Distress.
Unfortunately, I bought this on my kindle (reading app) and wish I could get a refund. The editing needed a LOT of work. There were so many typos I had to figure things out for myself. And so many repeat lines - the same sentences over and over again.
Very poorly done - it felt like the whole story was rushed, as though the author had a deadline to meet or just wasn't that into the story by the end of it. And the conflicting emotions between the parents/children (vampire families) were too back-and-forth and easily smoothed over.
I want to get the 3rd in the series just to see how it plays out but I'm going to have to wait - I don't want to waste another $5. :( I really hate leaving bad reviews but I do it in the hopes the author will note the mistakes and go back for another rewrite, consider the issues and make improvements.
Now for the good. :) It was an easy read which I accomplished in less than two hours (okay, maybe not so good as I want a story with some depth and meat). I think that the flow went pretty well with only a few issues. The character development needs some work but the characters are likeable. ***spoilers*** I appreciate that the author has set up a "cliffhanger" of sorts and can't wait to read what happens with the missing vampire, the mom, and the "love triangle" between the main character and her 2 "love" interests. To be honest, I'm rooting for Cody. I realize that the vampire/human relationship thing is big in YA paranormal, especially since Twilight...but I'm still rooting for the vampire/vampire connection. Very cool. And I really feel for Cody - to see something that sweet and innocent (?) develop into something more - and the fact that Cody had his eyes suddenly opened like that and Tessa's becoming more and more aware of HIM, feeling safe and comforted and unsettled all at the same time...I'm just really crossing my fingers for Cody.
I have a feeling that Jared's vampire genetics will come back into play in book 3, but that's enough for the spoilers.
Again, a pretty decent read. I'm glad I read book 1 last night/this morning and was able to immediately follow up with book 2. Now just waiting for book 3 to be more financially feasible, since I'm reluctant to shell out any more on a book I'm just not sure about.
