Very Different Spin on Vampires and the like

I just finished this book last night and for a short book it was definately well worth the read. I thought it was cleverly written and the plot flowed nicely so that you were not only wrapped into the life of the main character but the issues that she was faced with. Admittedly I think this is more of a ladies book rather than a guys book. I also enjoyed the relationship that she had with William and I think this book although dark has a bright spot in it. I would recommend this book for those who are looking for a short book that is filled with adventure and a person (vampire) trying to develop a sense of self and how to function in our world.

I usually dislike stories with flashbacks outside of the linear time line, and this book made liberal use of flashbacks. The surviving characters are interesting and the situation has the potential to make a decent vampire series. The story is written in the first person viewpoint of a somewhat closeted vampire girl. So, If you really like vampires and don't mind the feminine perspective, then you might enjoy this tale which recounts the heroine's life story and the challenges she faces when circumstances change drastically. (Note, despite the feminine perspective, there's plenty of violence/killing throughout the book plus the stories of a telepath and other vampires are included.)

    Intriguing

    Little unsure at the beginning but after the first few pages I was hooked. I couldn't put it down. It's a bit slow in the beginning but keep going. In my opinion u will not regret it.

    BLOOD MEMORIES is a terrific vampire stand alone thriller

    Youthful looking beauty Eleisha Clevon seems vulnerable and helpless, but in reality she is a survivor being two hundred plus years old vampire. She easily lures human predators into being alone with her before ripping open their throats to dine on their blood. When she eats a mortal¿s blood she also sees their lives mentally flash passed her. Eleisha also is the prime caretaker for a senile vampire.----------- After being seen by cops when the vampire Edward killed himself, Eleisha accompanied by William flees Portland for Seattle. They move into the home of Maggie also a vampire. Meanwhile a vampire who has gone rogue is killing vampires with Eleisha and her friends on the undead death list.------------- BLOOD MEMORIES is a terrific vampire stand alone thriller that fans will enjoy but ironically when compared to the classic Barb and J.C. Hendee¿s Noble Dean saga it somewhat pales in fairness few supernatural novels attain that quality level. The story is filled with action, but also contains a strong cast who insure vampirism in the Northwest seems real as readers learn the back-story of several of them through the characters practicing mental telepathy. The heroine especially is an intriguing person she detests killing humans although she knows she must yet limits her attacks to the dregs of society. Still it is serial killing villain murdering his own kind who makes this a fine tale that the vampire crowd will appreciate.----------- Harriet Klausner

    This book is great

    I hope this will be a series, as I would read all Barb Hendee's books. I like paranormals where the otherworldly creatures are in our world, and this is how this is. It shows the vampires as the most normal as any book.
