Review: Blood Bonds by Kerry A. Campbell

 

Blood BondsLily Myers is living an ordinary life until she meets Quinn Carter. When Quinn turns out to be a century-old vampire, Lily is thrust into a reality where she’s an unwilling believer. But as her fear fades and her curiosity wins out, she finds herself falling for Quinn and learning more about this new world. From hunting down a vampire killer to meeting werewolves, Lily’s life has definitely taken a turn…but whether it’s for the worse or better, she’s still finding out.

 

A Paranormal Romance for Vampire Lovers

Lily is a lab tech with insomnia. Because of her late night walks in the town that she knows so well, she finds herself intertwined in the dark, hidden world of vampires and werewolves.

After she meets the mysterious, drop dead gorgeous Quinn in a dark alley, her life is changed forever. And, after a series of unusual events, Lily finds herself bonded to him for life.

The characters are awesome and relatable–people that you might meet any day on the street. Dimitri is all about appearances and wears nothing but the best designer clothing; Eric is a laid back, beer slugging, always hungry alpha werewolf.

Blood Bonds is Kerry’s first solo novel. Her writing style mixes the darkness of blood and vampires with a touch of light-heartedness and a twist of sarcasm on the side.

I’ve posted some excerpts from Blood Bonds in my Friday post. If you’d like to have a read, check it out here.

BookBeginningsFridays

Book Beginnings on Fridays is a meme hosted at Rose City Reader  You share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires

Book Beginning:

Lily pulled her coat closer against the crisp night air. Her cheeks stung, the skin tight from the cold.

Many people would feel uneasy walking alone after midnight down these streets. Lily did not. She knew her hometown well, and when her insomnia kept her awake, she hit the streets. After two years of these late-night walks, she felt comfortable walking alone.

What do you think of Lily so far? She’s braver that I am!

The Friday 56

Here’s the blurb from Page 56:

Lily felt paralysed. 

Eric got  up, flipped the man over and took the dagger out of his chest.

“That’s going to stain,” Dimitri said, as he watched blood pool onto the rug. “What a waste of perfect blood.” He sighed.

You gotta love that line “That’s going to stain”!

Here’s the blurb from Amazon:

Lily Myers is living an ordinary life until she meets Quinn Carter. When Quinn turns out to be a century-old vampire, Lily is thrust into a reality where she’s an unwilling believer. But as her fear fades and her curiosity wins out, she finds herself falling for Quinn and learning more about this new world. From hunting down a vampire killer to meeting werewolves, Lily’s life has definitely taken a turn…but whether it’s for the worse or better, she’s still finding out.

So far, I’ve only read to 24% of this book, and I have to say, I’m really enjoying it. Kerry brings her characters to life, and considering the subject matter, she has quite the knack for humour!

Thanks for reading and Happy Weekend!

I’m so excited to finally be able to purchase this book! Yay! It’s a long awaited compilation of short stories by my dear friend Kerry, the face behind the blog The Geeky Book Lady.

After discussions over numerous cups of coffee and in writer’s groups and workshops, I feel like I know these characters. I can’t wait to read Lily and Quinn’s story in print!

Kerry’s writing has always been top notch and she has worked hard to bring the stories that she is so passionate about into book form. 

Vampires, werewolves…if you enjoy reading paranormal or speculative fiction, it is definitely worth picking up a copy. It is a short story collection but all the stories are continuous and connected.

On Friday, I’ll will give a glimpse into Blood Bonds with Book Beginnings and the Friday 56. I’ll follow up next week with my review, so stay tuned!

I don’t post very often, but there’s lots going on lately, so I’ll just say that I also have another post coming up related to short stories. I’m super pumped about it, but you’ll just have to wait…

Till next time, I’d like to know…do you enjoy stories about vampires and werewolves? Leave a comment!
