I’ve been reluctant to read stories featuring vampires because lately they’ve all sounded the same. However, I’m glad I took a risk because Vampire State of Mind offers a whole new take on this sub-genre.
It’s part mystery, part paranormal romance with a dash of Sci-Fi. I loved the world Ms. Lovering created for this book. There’s been a war, a treaty was signed and now it seems like it’s back to normal but as you read further into the story you begin to wonder if that’s possible. The author did a great job putting me on the edge of my seat, wondering what was happening and what would happen next to disrupt the once peaceful society.
I found myself thrown into a world that on the one hand was very familiar, but yet foreign and unnerving. The dialogue was great and the interaction between everyone, even though it was paranormal, sounded realistic. The story is told in the first person that I felt added to the immediacy of both character and place.
And the icing on the cake was the sexual tension between Jessie and Sil. If like me you’ve been hesitant to read vampire stories, I’d say give this one a try because I think you’ll enjoy it.
