Authors/Publishers Book Description/Synopsis
All Tara Daston wanted was a fun night out dancing with her boyfriend. Getting killed was certainly the last thing she ever expected and waking back up three days later as a vampire was the last thing she ever wanted. And just when she finally begins adjusting to her new life, a friend is killed by a creature nobody can identify. At first, she tries to move on because, after all, she’s just a newly risen vampire who was still trying to learn about existing as the Undead. But despite it all, she can’t stop thinking about her friend. As more killings happen, she realizes that she can’t ignore it any longer. Deciding to investigate a little, she meets Tom Duncan, the lead agent of the Preternatural Investigation Agency, who is not amused at her interference. Whether it’s because they are both vampires or because he keeps treating her as if she’s five years old, but Tara really enjoys riling the agent. Also, now that she’s gotten involved, she doesn’t want to stop. And when the killer notices her and is intrigued, she no longer has any choice, forcing her to work together with Tom and the rest of the agency to stop the murders.
What Do I Think?
This new weaver of the vampire story (new to me anyway) Katrina Michaels has an innovative way in writing about the Undead and the conflict of the human and paranormal worlds that is both revitalizing and electrifying.
Her cast of characters has its eccentricities to provide the comedy that I think all books of this genre needs; the story has several distinctly scary occurrences, which only goes to prove that this story weaver is not afraid to get her hands dirty with all the unpleasant aspects related with genre.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone keen to try new authors, believe me you will enjoy the event.
