Review of ‘Secrets of a Vampire’

Posted on Updated on

A free-spirited type, Alexandra looks for love in all the wrong places. One night, while on a boring date, love comes looking for her in the form of a trio of vampires, Bronson, the alpha vamp, Dominic and Lisette, his followers, are drawn to her. Worse, she finds herself drawn to them. After absorbing the weirdness of discovering that vampires are not just urban legends, she learns that she is descended from a long line of powerful witches and these three, along with many others, seek her out because she can help them find something—a stone that will allow vampires to walk in daylight.

Secrets of a Vampire by Martha Woods is a young-adult paranormal romance that melds ancient legend with popular contemporary culture in a story that is part adventure, part tale of the attraction between unlikes. Lots of both adventure and romance as Alex learns to use her heritage, while trying to survive against those in the unhuman world who would do her harm.

I received a free copy of this book. It’s a nice story if you happen to be a fan of romance novels with an other-worldly theme, although it drags a bit in the middle, and for my taste, there could have been less romance and more adventure.

I still give it three and a half stars.
