About the Author

Jez Strider (1983-Present) is a native of Tennessee. For as long as she can remember, reading has been a big part of her life, taking her out of a sometimes harsh reality to wonderful new worlds. When she was in high school, writing became more prevalent. She worked for three years on the newspaper staff as the Arts and Entertainment editor. After graduation and a few bumps in the road, she enrolled at Penn Foster College with a focus in freelance writing. It took several years before she realized she wanted to give writing a book a shot. In 2011, she was diagnosed with cancer. That fight and becoming a survivor gave her new insight and motivations toward her goals. With the realization that none of us are guaranteed tomorrow, she started work on that elusive book. Vampire's Eve is her first publication. Today, Jez still resides in Tennessee with her boyfriend, cat, and dog. She is currently working on her next book.

Vampire's Eve (Vamp Life #1) by Jez Strider tells the tale of Evelyn Hart, a vampire who is having a good patch in her life. A man she might love, a job she enjoys, and a bit of peace. Then her past bursts in, and she's struggling for her life and all she holds dear.

I found the story difficult to plumb. Motivations were murky, actions taken often not to move the plot forward or tell the story, but merely to create conflict. A well-drawn character will not only entangle a reader emotionally, but their actions will be predictable within a certain range. Is Antonio a good guy? Why does he make a leering comment about a teenager? Is Marcus an alpha male or a doormat? No one does anything overtly stupid, just undermotivated. I'm still shaking my head as to why the presumed future bad guy was mad about something they already knew.

Passive voice and otherwise weak prose contribute to the confusion. The word "just" is used 162 times. Sentences needed to be strengthened and pared, commas needed adding, and entire sections needed cutting.

An "OBTW", or "Oh, By The Way," is when something is introduced too far along in the text, with no foreshadowing. Strider introduced a side character more than halfway through the book. Oh, by the way, her best friend's daughter is psychic, she needs help, and here she comes! I still can't figure out what she was doing there, except to create a little more unneeded conflict between the two lead males. In another OBTW, the lead male uses a catchphrase near the end of the book, which was not used previously. While catchphrases can be overdone, this is exactly the kind of detail that would have made his character a bit deeper. Introducing it at the end of the book was baffling.

I generally don't have time to sit down and enjoy a book very often due to work and the fact that my kids pull me in a million different directions. With that being said, once I picked up this book I could NOT put it down. The characters were relatable and the plot was interesting. My husband even read it and enjoyed it, and the cliffhanger is killing us! I am looking forward to reading the next book very soon, and hopefully many more titles from Jez

Thought I would try this since some of this genre have been
quite good. Not so in this case more like not even bad just
tepid and indifferent. Did not like the characters and the plot
was just some warmed up left overs from bad twilight series

Vampire’s Eve is a fun read. There’s action, romance, cute guys to fall in love with, bad guys to hate, the main heroine is real enough to sympathize with and worry about when she does risky things. And these are the stereotypical vampires (think Anne Rice vampires rather than the sparkly, melodramatic Twilight vampires who like going to high school for hundreds of years, though Antonio does share Edward’s knack for sneaking silently into places). Everything felt very typical vampire fare with nothing all that remarkable about it and no real deep emotional seeking, and it did remind me a bit of Twilight in that it had the heroine dithering between the two boyfriends. In all, if you’re looking for light vampire fare with some sexy scenes, this is for you.

This was one of those books that I was glad I didn't pay for. The time lost trying to get through it was cost enough.

The fact that Amazon allows authors to self-publish is a great thing and I have discovered many great authors from this medium. This, however, is not one of them. While I admire any author that is willing to make themselves vulnerable by publishing their work and allowing the public to read it, I cannot recommend that anyone read this book. This read like a high school student's final exam. If it were written by one of my students, the grade would have been a C -. Don't waste your time.

I thought the story was kind of interesting and it was a quick read. There were a few confusing parts. It would have been nice to have had more of a back story on Ash and Fate. What about Taya?? Now she hates Evelina? You're confused? So was I.

My major complaint was the editing or lack thereof. There were a number of incorrectly spelled words and words missing in sentences. I found myself making corrections in my head as I was reading (this was distracting).

This book is a great read. From the first page to the last I could not put this story down. The author has a great flair for keeping the story line fast paced, interesting to the reader and keeping you on the edge of your seat. Can't wait to read more from this author !

This was one of the better vampire books I've read in a while! I loved the characters....Evelyn and Marc made a great couple..the love they had was a good kind. I did feel bad for Antonio as he really did love her. The plot was good and the author did a very good job explaining the history of Eve 's past so you understand what the evil bad guy had done to her. Was a good read and I definitely recommend it!
