Blood Thirst by LA Freed

Published June 21, 2012 by Ema Volf

I just finished Blood Thirst by LA Freed, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

Angela was heading to her car when she was attacked by a vampire named Matthew. She managed to bite him in defense and swallowed some of his blood, but as a human, she was no match for him. She was knocked unconscious and thrown into a river. She managed to escape her sunken car and went back to ┬áher hotel. Near death and almost bloodless, she was visited by a vampire named Elijah, who offered to change her into a full vampire. If he didn’t, she would die. After much deliberation, she went to find him, and not a moment too soon.

There are countless coming-of-age human stories. This is somewhat of a coming-of-age vampire story. We follow Angela through her change from mortal to immortal, mistakes and lessons included. LA Freed really pulls you into the story to the point where, at times, you feel like you’re going through it yourself.

Much of this story is definitely not what it seems, not even Matthew and Elijah. Just when I thought I had things figured out, I was proven to have figured out absolutely nothing. It was unusual and welcome. With the countless vampire stories that have popped up recently, I’m happy to say that this is definitely not your average vampire story. It was positively captivating.

Oh my … I’m going to be busy busy …

So when I said I’m going to start doing longer, better reviews, I meant it. Every last word of it. And now, I have been given the opportunity to do 5 books. O.O I’m going to be a busy, busy girly over the next couple of weeks. And I must say they all look FANTASTIC! I can’t wait to finish them all! These, of course, are reviews in addition to finishing the editing work for The Rapture of Avery Maye (which is almost done).

Coming up (in this order):

  1. Midnight Hunter by Bonnie Bernard
  2. Dawn of the Hunter by Bonnie Bernard
  3. Blood Thirst by LA Freed
  4. Spellbound by Samantha Combs
  5. Everspell by Samantha Combs

Also, on July 13th, I will be sharing an interview with Cat Miller! I can’t wait! I love that woman to pieces! If you have any questions you would like me to ask (in addition to my own), the last day to get them to me is this Saturday!
