A Vampire’s Tale by Maya Tyler
I read many different genres of books but without a doubt one of my favourites is paranormal. Give me vampires, shifters and fae any day over a rock star or mafia boss.
A Vampire’s Tale is a unique type of romance. It is essentially a slow burn for most of the story, a deep and progressive tale of love between our intrepid heroine Marisa and the enigmatic vampire Corgan.
For me this book was reminiscent of Interview with a Vampire, a tiny smidge of Misery (you’ll get the reference once you read it), a little bit Twilight mixed with a whole lot of originality, romance and drama, with the intimate scenes being softer and more fade to black than vampire books often portray.
‘“I should’ve stayed away, but I couldn’t resist you. My first vision of you occurred about five years before I approached you at the library.”
“And disappeared before I could see you.”
“That was the plan. I only wanted to be close to you for a moment, I never intended on anything else.”’
It is very well written, both in the characterisation of Marisa and Dee and the different paranormal aspects, it felt fresh and different from any vampire book I’ve read, however there just seemed to be something missing from the story. It was interesting and the main heroine Marisa was intelligent, witty and engaging, but for me, the hero Corgan fell a little flat. Yes, he was mysterious, beautiful inside and out and facing his past brought Marisa into his life but his character seemed a little wooden to me rather than aloof and endearing. I wanted him to be more demonstrative in his emotions and gradually he learns to do this with Marisa’s help. This is my first time reading Maya’s work and from reading this one I would certainly read another one of her books.
Let me start by telling you that Vampire's tell is a standalone. Therefore, all of you that dislike series or cliffhangers, don't worry and enjoy the ride.
This novel is a paranormal romance unlike any other I have read before. I must confess I was a little worried about the writer-vampire relationship.
Probably because I thought the romance will be a little cheesy and not too much action or plot development into it, but I am glad I was wrong. The
story ended up being a sweet and heartwarming romance mixed with a good enough dose of action and mystery.
Our heroine Marisa was quite likable and easy to relate to. After all, we have all being in that spot where your job isn't one of your dreams. It frustrate us and
makes us wish for more. Well, our girl certainly got her more. I have to say the story was so well told that it made me picture almost every scene on my mind. It
felt real, which made it believable. That is a rare trait these days and for that I am grateful. I kind of wish the story hadn't been as fast paced, probably just my opinion
. Honestly, the pace of the plot development was good but I wish there was a bonus, something extra hidden between the climax and the ending because
I truly didn't want it to end.
Now, our hero. Corgan Halton is and isn't what I was expecting him to be. Yes, he is handsome and has some typical vampire traits. Nevertheless, I loved how the author presents
his view of the human misconceptions regarding his own kind. He was presented as someonw rational, intelligent, and sensitive. To some point, he
was even vulnerable and that is a real treasure. Not many authors present you a hero with vulnerabilities and make him still seem as strong and admirable. Probably that
was my favorite part of Corgan. I don't agree with his plans, most of the time, but I believe he has his heart on the right place.
This book is quite a specimen because it's worth isn't just in the romance development but in the stories behind our hero and heorine. I highly recommend this novel to those searching for something much fulfilling, interesting and enchanting than your typical romance.
