Thanks for a really good, unusual book!
Vampire Love Story (#1)
"Vampire Love Story"-the initial book in the series, and also the title of the Series, is one of those page-turning, can't walk away from, stay up late stories (like the Urban Fantasy "Bad Blood," co-authored by H.T. Night with J. R. Rain and Scott Nicholson). I read it in a single-short-sitting, because I simply could not stop reading! This is a DO NOT MISS Series!
Although this novel is titled "Vampire," make no mistake: it is not exclusively, nor even fully vampire. As the later titles in the series illustrate, werewolves are welcome in this "society" too. Well, maybe not welcome, from the vampire point of view, but definitely real, alive, and present. So are humans-prey.
Professional Mixed Martial Arts Fighter Josiah Reign doesn't ask much out of life. He has thoroughly repressed the loss of his sister and parents some years earlier. He experiences his emotions, but only to a certain depth. He trains, and he considers himself dedicated to the profession; but compared to his best friend and roommate, Tommy, Josiah is almost a slacker. Tommy recognizes this, but for a long time, doesn't let on. Then the MMAF authority sets up a fight between Tommy, who is in line for the title in his weight division, and Josiah. Both hate it, but they determine to fight their best anyway-and may the best fighter win. If only were it that simple! By the end of that night, Josiah's life is upside down, and the world has he thought he knew it has once again turned itself inside out, and he will never be the same man he had been.
Beyond, behind, the structure of human society exists another culture-not quite underground, not quite unknown. This culture does touch humanity at certain points-humans, after all, are prey-and in some cases (such as that of the main werewolf in this story) interact closely and cleverly with humans. Also a certain cadre of vampires elect (inspired by what they believe is a shared prophecy) to select and to interact with certain humans, in order to propel their own long-standing plans. The Mani-a vampire culture; the Carni-werewolves-are sworn enemies, and both for the most part, are enemies of the puny humans, known as the Tandra.
Josiah is a young MMA fighter who, mid-training run, stumbles into the hidden world of vampires -- oh, I'm sorry -- "mani" that surrounds him. He is quickly sucked into their orbit. The love story seemed a bit tangential to the story and most of the plot is conveyed during a pillow talk info dump towards the end of the book, making it difficult for me to care.
The book isn't the worst written self-published paranormal out there, but there is certainly some room for improvement.
Overall, the author's world isn't really one that appeals to me that much. The details about the carni and the mani and the triat just seemed obviously contrived, as did the ending.
