Yet another review request has come my way – I love it!
I am eternally grateful to be able to read this book and here’s why. Firstly, while it has a vampire plague spreading throughout the globe, it appears to treat it less as a paranormal entity and more as a dystopian. I love this take on viruses and outbreaks, as a huge fan of I Am Legend.
Secondly, it is short and while as a reader I don’t usually wish for books to be short, I have been snowed under with work lately and it’s made me worried about falling behind on my book reviews. I will read this book in one sitting and get a head start on the next one. It’s just what I need when things are getting busier and busier!
“What if saving humanity meant facing your deepest fears?
A deadly virus has ravaged the earth. Human survivors spend their days and nights fighting to stay alive in a world now owned by vampires.
Jett’s plans to get further off-grid fall apart when his woman suddenly disappears at the hands of the hawkers – the most deplorable and dangerous humans to survive the apocalypse.
Now, Jett is forced to confront evil head-on as he faces choices that he never dreamed possible.
Can he survive long enough to retrieve his woman before she is slaughtered? Or will he succumb to the bloody wrath of the Undead?”

I can’t wait to start this one. While we do love our formulas and enjoy reading the same kind of stories over again, it’s new twists and original takes on already popular and well-loved ideas that make us fall in love with reading all over again. I have to admit, I’m only getting this vibe from the blurb alone but I’m so sure that I’m right!
Kim Petersen is a new author on me but she writes in my genre (urban fantasy, yay!) and it’s awesome discovering new people who read and write the same things you do. Fandoms are built for obsessing over stuff.
So, I’m counting on this book for a few things: to flip the vampire tropes on their heads and to help me get a head start on my book reviewing. Both good things and both sorely needed. I’ll let you know what I think on Wednesday for the book review feature.
Thanks for reading!
