It has its moments, offering an interesting start to a new Vampire series, while switching up the vampire mythos. Not perfect, but not bad.
What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
If Jewel’s blood matches with a vampire, she loses her freedom as a donor and possibly her life. If not, her family dies.
When the Blood Hunger Plague decimated humanity, Donor Life Corp inoculated humans against vampirism and stopped the extinction of the human race. To ensure civility, all adult humans are required to donate blood to vampires.
After eighteen-year-old Jewel’s father goes missing, she applies to the Blood Match Program to save her siblings from a life on the streets. If she matches, she’ll become an exclusive lifetime donor to an elite vampire in exchange for her family’s safety. But the matching process turns out to be more than she anticipated. Jewel perfectly matches with Kingston, Diego, and Austin Divine, the three dangerously hot vampire heirs to Donor Life Corp, and they sweep her into a world where she turns into something she never imagined: An equal.
As powerful enemies arise to threaten her blood matching, Jewel must learn to survive in a world that would rather see her caged. If she can’t, she not only jeopardizes her family’s lives and the hearts of her three perfect vampires, she risks facing her final donation.
This book caught me right in the beginning and kept me engrossed….. till about 50%. Something happened there, either the writing style or the flow, but even with all the action and revelations, it slowed and almost lost me completely. It picked back up again around 80% and ended solidly, tempting me to grab book 2 to see what happens.
First Person, Single POV
PG (but will be R or NC-17 later in the series)
- Interesting world building.
- Many questions.
- Familial relationships are strong.
- Concepts are fresh.
- Gets confusing in places.
- Some parts are rushed while others need more speed or detail.
- Antagonist is revealed…. but…. guess we need book 2 to understand.
While this book has some issues, it offers enough stability to the story to offer a solid introduction to a new and interesting vampire saga. If the undead and the undying are your cup of tea, this Reverse Harem Novel may be right up your alley.
