REVIEW: BLOOD CALLING



BLOOD CALLING
BLOOD CALLING #1
JOSHUA GROVER-DAVID PATTERSON
GENRE: YA/PARANORMAL 
 

SYNOPSIS

When Lucy Leary turned 18, her life fell apart. She crashed her car, her best friend abandoned her, her parents divorced, and her grandfather passed away, leaving her a single possession: A vampire slaying kit with a note that said, “THEY’RE REAL. FIGHT THEM.”

Now Lucy must stop the oldest, most dangerous vampire in history, before it can kill her family.





MY TAKE

4 STARS

Blood Calling is aimed toward the YA audience, but that doesn't make it any less entertaining for adults. This story takes a very different stance on the overly-done vampire story.

This story is told as if Lucy (the main character) is sitting across the table from you—like an autobiography so-to-speak. There are many that hate stories written this way, but I found it refreshing and enjoyed it.

I found Lucy to be a well-fleshed out character that I truly enjoyed reading about. She has become somewhat of a pariah at her school after a drunk driving accident. Her home life isn't much better either. Her parents have divorced and they basically ignore her. As a result of her drunk driving she is sentenced to serve community service at a homeless shelter—where she meets her first vampire...then she tries to kill him.

What I really like about this story is how the vampires are portrayed with a very different and unique twist. I don't want to ruin the story for potential readers, but I will say this—these vampires are saviors of the nearly dead.

Overall, this was a very entertaining and unique story that I highly recommend.


*I got this e-book through the LibraryThing Member Giveaway program in exchange for an honest review.
