Cherry knew it wasn’t entirely a routine vampire hunt- not with family involved- but she never expected it to go so wrong. Now her father is dead, and she has to break the news to her family and somehow find a way to move on. Unfortunately, “moving on” has its own complications.
This was a “grab you by the seat of your pants” kind of story. It was engaging from the beginning, starting off with an action sequence that also had emotional depth. The characters felt like real people, and their reactions and relationships were genuine. Cherry’s life felt real to me, and I was rooting for her the whole way through.
The one thing I would’ve liked was more background information about the world and Cherry’s family in particular. I will definitely be keeping up with the rest of the series and I hope that more is revealed in due time! This is one of the most intriguing and well-written paranormal/urban fantasy stories I’ve read lately.
