New Blood: Vampire in the City

New Blood: Vampire in the City (Book One)

Synopsis of book from amazon.com:

Emma Hammond is a normal young woman living in New York City whose life changes forever when one misstep brings her very close to death. Luckily, Alex Thompson, a handsome stranger (who also happens to be a vampire), jumps in to save her, turning Emma into a vampire. She quickly discovers the numerous advantages (no more allergies, glasses, or acne) and slight drawbacks (wanting to eat her boyfriend) of joining the ranks of the creatures of the night. But Emma soon finds out her new undead life isn't all it's cracked up to be when she gets pulled in to an age-old dispute between two feuding vampire clans.

My Review

Right away I was hooked to this book, even though it is simply written and contains a plot that has been used by other authors in the past. Within my first sitting, I read the first nine chapters and really wished to continue, but my class schedule would not let me. Once returning home from classes, I was able to finish the book within two sittings. This two hundred page book will be a fast read for readers who enjoy vampire stories, and if you enjoyed New Blood you would be pleased to find out there is a second book to Emma’s story called Wild Blood. While the plot of the story is not unique, the characters within this book are very likable  At the end of New Blood you’ll want to read more just to know what will happen with Emma’s love life.  All in all, this book is a fantastic read for those who have a passion of books involving vampires. I would gladly suggest this author’s work to any of my fellow readers, as I look forward to reading book two.
