About this ebook

Blood doesn’t just make her who she is…it also makes her what she is. 

Like being a sixteen-year-old vampire isn’t hard enough, Tessa’s throwback human genes make her an outcast among her relatives. But try as she might, she can’t get a handle on the vampire lifestyle and all the…blood.

Turning her back on the vamp world, she embraces the human teenage lifestyle–high school, peer pressure and finding a boyfriend. Jared manages to stir something in her blood. He’s smart and fun and oh, so cute. But Tessa’s dream of a having the perfect boyfriend turns into a nightmare when vampires attack the movie theatre and kidnap her date.

Once again, Tessa finds herself torn between the human world and the vampire one.

Will blood own out? Can she make peace with who she is as well as what?

The plot is filled with cliff hangers, mysteries, and problems that keep replenishing every time another is knocked down. I had wanted to stop reading it, but every time the thought crossed my mind I would tell myself, "a couple minuites won't hurt..." or, "just this sentence..." with this book a minute turned into an hour, and a sentence turned into a chapter... All in all, I think this is a book that practically anyone would enjoy, excluding the last cliff hanger, that would make anyone hate the end...

This book is a TEASER! No decent author would chop off an ending just to sell more books. I do NOT recommend this book. Nor will I ever purchase a book by this author.

This is YA done right. Sure there is the occasional rogue grammar error and minor inconsistency, but the overall flow and style keeps the reader engaged and anticipatory over the course of the entire story. The story is engaging and well put together. There is an excellent blend of the normal teenage angst with supernatural teenage angst and the balance is great. The way young vampires are depicted in this tale is a refreshing way to fluff up a common story and make it fresh for the reader. There are enough similarities to make vampire fans happy and the differences are enough to spruce up the way we think of the common vampire without resorting to a generous coating of stripper dust. The maturity level of dialogue in the story is relatable to the target audience along with the everyday problems of a socially awkward teenager that doesn't quite fit in. The frank underlying message of finding your inner strength lends a respectable quality to this book that is a rare find in the Young Adult genre. The language and descriptions were reasonable and realistic and the settings are well described and easy to visualize. As with most initial books of a series this story does end on a serious cliffhanger that all but forces you to run out and grab the next book of the series, but I see no reason why it wouldn't be worth it.

About the author

Dale Mayer is a USA Today bestselling author who writes for the young, the old and those in-between – no matter what the age. Some of her books are hot, some are sweet. Some will keep you up at night with a light on to keep the boogie man away and some you’ll want to cuddle close.

She’s long given up on trying to fit a specific genre. Instead she honors the stories that come to her – and some of them are crazy, break all the rules and cross multiple genres!

And that’s okay too.

There is one guarantee with each book – it will be a great read – each and every time.
