A must read for Paranormal Romance lovers

Val is a mix between Buffy and Anita Blake, so is the book. I really thought I wasn't going to enjoy this as much as I did, based on that fact alone. I love Buffy, and no one for me can compare. Anita, meh, not so much-but Val is a pretty cool girl. She has her own sarc...
Val is a mix between Buffy and Anita Blake, so is the book. I really thought I wasn't going to enjoy this as much as I did, based on that fact alone. I love Buffy, and no one for me can compare. Anita, meh, not so much-but Val is a pretty cool girl. She has her own sarcastic, tough-girl swagger and I really like how she handles herself. The description above is pretty accurate, this is not a YA. It's a crossover and leans more toward Adult Fantasy, but regardless, I found many things I enjoyed that will appeal to young adults as well. Val has some pretty difficult things to deal with. One, her mother kicks her out because she doesn't want her vampire hunting influence around her full human sister. Val's relationship with her mother is strained even before this, and treats her as if she's not even her daughter. Two, she begins working for the Special Crimes Unit and has a smoking hot partner that she has to reign in the succubus side of herself around. Not so easy. And when she feels everyone is against her, and she'll never be accepted, that's when Val starts to figure some things out for herself. I really enjoyed the self-discovery in this story, and Val is a strong female character that I find likable and relatable. The overall plot reads like your typical 'who did it' with her and her partner trying to discover the big bad in her city, but I really liked it. It kept my guessing till the very end and rooting for Val the whole time. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone who loves Paranormal Romance, strong, butt-kicking girls with attitude, and a fun fast read with mystery.

    Val Half-Succubus Vampire Slayer

    Valentine Shapiro is no ordinary 18 year old. She is half-succubus and a vampire slayer, yes like Buffy but minus the friends and school part. The eve of her 18th birthday her mother and step dad, somewhat kicked her out of the house, not only that they fired her at the bookstore (which they owned). They think her kid sister Jennifer is obsessed on what she can do and therefore branded as a bad influence so they ordered her to keep a distance for her safety. Hurt and feeling betrayed she decided to drive around in her Honda Valkyrie, she then met this cute little dog, he is half-hellhound, I'm telling you a Terrier that is half hell hound. Funny. And whatdya know they can talk telephatically. Anyway his name is Fang, they became friends right after Fang bit a vampire in his nether regions. In pursuit of job, home and money for everything else, she decided to call police detective Dan, who found her and Jennifer that fateful night with the body of a dead vampire. Apparently San Antonio have a special unit that deals with the paranormal. The chief hired her and knows of her nature. They both agreed that part has to be left as a secret. One night Val and Dan decided to check out this new group that calls themselves New Blood Movement. There they met Alejandro the leader who looks like he wanted peace among men and vampires by introducing the blood bank, voluntary donation and/or compensation by either pleasure or monetary. They also met Dan's ex-fiance. Lily who now turned Vamp. After doing their preliminary investigation on this organization, they did see impressive "intentions and standards" that seems to point that they really do consider human, not only equal but someone that they also need to respect and take care of, but after the meeting Val, Dan and Fang got aatacked by three vampires. Who is the real enemy here? Is the New Blood Movement only fronting?

    Fast-paced, with a fair amount of humor, unoriginal yes, but it was still entertaining. I am still willing to check out the sequel.
