I couldn't put this book down. It kept me up all night finishing it. S.J. Wright is an outstanding author. I highly recomend The Vampire's Warden.

This was a really good story! Sarah, who has no idea that vampires even exist, has the job of Vampire Warden fall into her lap after her father dies from cancer. Ok, so you would think that since this job falls to the next person in line in the family, the fact that vampire exist wouldn't have been kept from Sarah. Not only does Sarah have to deal with this whole new world she's been pushed into, she also has to deal with the recent death of her father, the fact that her mother isn't really dead - she just left, her sister being in danger, the regular family business to run, etc... She has a lot on her plate right now and you can't help but feel for her. A mysterious guy named Alex shows up at the Inn that Sarah now runs, saying that her mother sent him there to help her. She also is dealing with this attraction she is starting to feel toward Michael - the vampire she is supposed to guard who is equally as mysterious as Alex. There wasn't any romance in this book, which I was a little disappointed about, but I predict that will be coming in the next novella. I am sort of seeing a love triangle coming, but I guess I will just have to wait and see. There are also a lot of unanswered questions hanging, so I am definitely looking forward to finding out what happens next! I recommend this book to teen OR adult readers of the paranormal genre.

I found this book to be unique in its approach to the typical vampire story. It's far from typical it's very different. I'm not going to give a spoiler here other than its storyline of the sentinel concept is awesome and very different. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. Very Well Done. Buy it and read it now if you haven't yet.

This was a really great story. I fell in love with the characters and definitely had a hard time putting it down. I do wish that it was longer, but only because I couldn't get enough. I can't wait to find out what happens next!

Sarah Brightman has the unique task of being a Vampire's Warden. Only, according to Sarah, vampires don't exist. Sarah's life as an innkeeper is flipped upside down by the journal of her grandfather and the arrival of the Counsel of Vampires. As she learns more and more about Vampires she finds herself drawn to the very Vampire she is to keep imprisoned. When her sister is kidnapped by Vampires, Sarah has to make the ultimate choice: save her sister or keep the dangerous Vampire locked up. Lets Talk About It: The Vampire's Warden is a really good story that I gobbled up in one sitting. It pulls you in pretty quickly and before you know it you've read the whole dang thing. I enjoyed the story and the characters very much. I was a bit dissapointed with the ending, however. I felt it left the story open too much, almost as if this book, this story didn't have a conclusion. It was much like watching your favorite TV show only to have it end with a 'to be continued' flashing across the bottom. Now I have to anxiously wait for the next in the series to find out what happens, and the why's behind all that happened in the orginal book. If you enjoy cliffhangers.. pick this up now!

I am not a vampire reader but this book was one I could not put down. The begining grabbed me and did not let go until the end. then the excerpt from book 2 had me searching B&N for it and could not find it. Please, please, please make it available. I'm dying to know what happends with Micheal, Sarah and Alex.

I loved this book. Well worth the cost. I am hoping the next book is just as good or better.

I truly enjoyed this book. It was fresh and unique when it comes to vampires. I loved the premise of a "Vampire Warden", so cool. The characters were all likeable and Sarah was a good, strong female lead. I can't wait for the next book. S.J. Wright is an awesome up and coming author. She's certainly caught my attention and I'm impatiently awaiting her future adventures. Good job!!!

I really, really enjoyed reading this. Its not because of some Vampire love triangle or anything like that. The potential is there but the storyline is much more. Sarah and Katie have just lost their father. They don't know too much about their mother, only believing that she's been dead for years. The family doctor breaks the news that their mother is not dead after all. A mysterious stranger by the name of Alex suddenly makes an appearance. His reasons for being there are eventually revealed, throwing another wrench into the emotional upheaval that Sarah is experiencing. While reeling from this unexpected news, Sarah is given a mysterious journal that unlocks even more family secrets. Sarah finds herself the new, albeit unwilling, Warden over the Vampire "jail" and not a moment too soon. Unfortunately for her, its a position that's passed down through the generations. Should she refuse, it falls to Katie. To Sarah, this is unthinkable. Katie is in college, setting up her future. Sarah, as the eldest, shoulders this new responsibility. Just when she thinks she has it under control, Michael enters the scene bringing a whole lot of trouble. That's when it starts to get really interesting. Sarah is not an angst-filled young woman, but someone who cares deeply and is faced with unbelievable danger. She carries a heavy burden and is trying to work her way through it. Alex and Michael have a very deep history that I hope the author goes into more detail with in the next book. There are a lot of unanswered questions about Nelly, Dr. Fleming and the others but I guess it comes with the territory of writing a series. You are intrigued enough to get the next installment to find out what happens next. Ms. Wright has definitely achieved that. The writing is dark, delicious and fast-paced. I do hope that the next installment is longer than this one. I like novellas, don't get me wrong but this deserves a more thorough write. There are so many different ways the Vampire Warden could go and should be told in a longer book. Either way, I am definitely getting the next one.

The Vampire's Warden" is an incredibly different take on the vampire myth. Vampires still need to be invited in and they still only come out at night. However, a family originating from Pawnee roots have the ability to contain vampires on their property from generation to generation. Three months after the death of her father, Sarah a 23 year old woman discovers that the mother she believed to be dead for fourteen years is alive. He is livid, disappointed, betrayed and devastated. She is given a journal that her father left instruction to be given to her outlining the family legacy: They are vampire wardens. While Sarah attempts to come to grips with all of this, she also must find a way to run the family inn and find a way to tell her younger sister, Katie of the betrayal. A stranger comes to the inn, Alex who is sent by her mother to help her with the farm and her new duties. At first, she tries to send him away until she realizes she truly needs him. Then, she meets Michael, one of the vampires whose incarceration she is responsible for. He is dark, mysterious and sexy. Sarah is both attracted and fearful. I do not want to reveal any other details of the storyline because I do not want to spoil the read of this wonderful story. E. J. Wright creates a wonderful powerful read and I read it with zealous enthusiasm. My only complaint is that the story seemed rushed at time and the ending was just too abrupt. However, the author makes up for it by including more details into the first chapter of the next novel entitled, "The Vampire's Curse." I was able to pick up this e-book for 99 cents. Although I will tell you it is worth far more. Do not hesitant, beg, borrow, or steal (No, not really) this book!

This book was great. I like how she managed to break the vampire facade with the Vampires Warden. The characters are great and Sarah is a great character. However, I think the name changed I dont know if that was a typo or maybe I read it wrong. In the first book her name was Sarah Wood and in the excerpt from the new one her name is Sarah Brightman. Just might want to correct that. It could confuse some readers expecially when the new book comes out. Other than this mishap the book was a great read. I am looking foward to seeing what happens with Sarah and Alex and especially Michael.

I read the whole book so fast. I just love it and can't wait for the next book. I found out later I went to high school with the author. So very cool. Please keep writing.

I really enjoyed this short read. The characters are interesting and the concept very different from most vampire novels. There are some serious things happening between Sarah and Michael that leave you craving answers. Michael is an intriguing enigma. There are some complex things working under his surface and I want to know what makes him tick. I can't wait for the next book to see what happens. I would recommend this book to anyone that is looking for something new and fresh to read.
