Vampyre Kisses is the debut novel from Elizabeth Kolodziej. This book was epic on multiple levels. I read a lot of paranormal- there are no less than 4 series of vampire books on the shelf beside me as I type this- so I love to find an author who can create a world that isn't s cookie cutter replica of someone else's vampires/werewolves. Vampyre Kisses shows a great deal of research on Liz's part to make such a vibrant world that is so obviously entrenched in the myths and legends of real peoples. I really liked this book and am SO excited to know that it is part of a series and not a stand alone.
What would it be like to have a chance encounter change your life forever? Faith Scott is about to find out. When she goes out to a club with her ex turned best friend, Mac, Faith meets a man named Trent who is about to turn her world inside out. Trent is a vampire with a conscience. He doesn't want to force anyone into the life he leads and he doesn't like to kill anyone. Trent feels a bit like a monster, even if he does appreciate the vampire life. But he secretly hopes to one day find love and someone who will love him in return, even if he is a monster. When he meets Faith, he is so intrigued by her that he can not simply walk away from her, no matter how much his friends and maker might try to convince him that he should. Trent can sense that there is something different about her even if he doesn't know what it is. Meeting Trent is the catalyst that sends Faith on an epic journey, over the course of which, she learns many things about herself, her dearly departed father and her off-putting mother. Faith builds her own family of friends who love her and stand beside her, even in the face of the uncertain.
This book was a fun read that really hooked me after I got going. It was hard to step away from because the action was so fast and furious. The characters really drew me in and made me want to know what was going to happen and how would they make it through. I love Faith and Trent together. Their love and friendship was heart warming and sweet. I also love the other supporting characters like Morgan, Mac and ZT. Faith is lucky to have such a great group of friends! This book comes highly recommended so go check it out!! You can learn more on Liz's blog, follow her on Twitter, or on Facebook. You can also buy her book on Smashwords, Amazon and Barnes and Noble Online. It's less than $4.00 and worth every penny.
Vampyre Kisses earns 4 Fairies for a wonderfully different book about supernatural beings.
