I have been totally burned out by vampire novels. Glowing teenage vampires are the worst thing ever in this genre. So it has been a good couple of years since I have picked up any kind of vampire novel. I saw this book on a sale email from Amazon or one of the other sale emails I get weekly for books and authors. The book is a couple years old. The cover art is what grabbed my attention first. I read the synopsis and some reviews and I was hooked. I thought why not. Take a chance, get this book. You will not be disappointed.
This is a badass vampire story. This book is scary as hell. Don't read it at night. There was a couple passages that totally freaked me out. It is very creepy, the setting is perfect and the author has made a great set of characters. It takes place in small town USA. A great community to start a family, raise your kids, have a nice family farm or small business. But like all small towns there are ghost stories about one specific area of town. In this small town it is "the haunted forest". Stories about "the haunted forest" at the edge of town have always been around. No one really knows what hides in the forest but everyone talks about and feels that there is something evil about this forest. The storyline is fast paced with awesome twists and turns. I truly enjoyed this book. It has put faith back in the idea that there is still good vampire fiction out there.
