In Reign of Blood, 17 year old April Tate – along with her mother and little brother -- is alone in the world. They are seemingly the only humans left in a world that has been ravaged by a epidemic that has either killed everyone else or turned them into vampires. It’s a little like the tales of zombie epidemics, but I truly love the twist through which they have become blood drinkers – not brain/body eaters.
Set in the post-apocalyptic city of what was once Las Vegas, April and her family has managed to find secure shelter and create a way of life for themselves – that is until one fateful day when her family is abducted. April’s retaliatory search for her family brings her face to face with a new breed of vampire unlike the ones she has come to know.
It is while she is with this new breed that April has to come to terms with how her world has changed – including a possible love story for the almost fearless young woman.
I absolutely LOVED this first in the Reign of Blood series. I have never been to Las Vegas but Purdy is so skilled at describing the world that I never once had to wonder what it was like. There were a few things that I saw coming – but hey, you read enough books by the same author and you start to understand their writing – and knowing it was probably going to happen only made me anticipate the coming pages more. I can’t wait to pick up Disarming (book 2).

It might be a good book, but I never got a chance to read it.
I NEVER RECEIVED THIS BOOK! If I don't receive free books, how can I actually spend money on one? I tried to get help, but I never did.
