The Anti-Vampire Tale

( 17 )

Overview

Simon is a vampire, prowling through the dark New Orleans streets that pulse with wild adventure and fangs gleaming in the shadows. He's spent the last few decades as a recluse, aching over a lost love. Now, he's put it behind him, thirsting to fulfill the raging inner need he's deprived himself for so long.

Overview

Simon is a vampire, prowling through the dark New Orleans streets that pulse with wild adventure and fangs gleaming in the shadows. He's spent the last few decades as a recluse, aching over a lost love. Now, he's put it behind him, thirsting to fulfill the raging inner need he's deprived himself for so long.

Ruby feels isolated and out of place-lonely, shy, but too strong-minded to go along with the crowd. All that changes when she is dragged out for her birthday and ends up dancing with Simon-mysterious, blue-eyed, and gorgeous. Her body tingles watching his muscled form move-so fast, so smooth, so powerful. His smile is otherworldly, and his kiss charges her with electric energy. All seems to be going well until three other vampires appear in the crowd, turning the dance floor into a horror show.

The other vampires, led by the vicious Roderick, are after a new fix-the new breed. It's a mix of blood and something secret that's driven them to a desperate addiction, making them reckless and willing to tear anyone apart to get to it, and Ruby's best friend, Ambrosia, has something they need to make it. When Ambrosia flees New Orleans for her life, they relentlessly hunt the one person who knows where she is: Ruby.

Stalked by ravenous vampires at every turn, Ruby's only hope for survival is her handsome new love. Through crowded dance floors, wild forests, high-speed car races, and even into Roderick's horrific dwelling filled with hostile vampires, Simon risks his life trying to keep her safe while being outnumbered at every turn and mesmerized by her every second-even while facing death, danger, and darkness.

The Anti-Vampire Tale is a fast-paced, thrilling vampire story of action, danger, and passion with teeth.

    fast-paced action and romance minus drama and angst = one great vampire story

    Ruby doesn't fit in with humans; Simon doesn't fit in with vampires. They meet; they dance - and then a psychotic vampire named Roderick with a taste for a sick new type of blood shows up a tries to kidnap Ruby's best friend. What started as a perfect evening turns into a nightmare, and the plot quickly turns from romance to action as Simon does everything he can to protect Ruby and her friend from certain death at the hands of Roderick and his blood-junkie goons.

    The timing is perfect; the balance between action and romance just right. The romance is sizzling but not sappy, without the unnecessary drama and angst that so many books in this genre succumb to. (There's a really funny moment when they're hiding in the woods and Ruby needs to answer nature's call.) The vampires are incredibly strong and fast, but they're not magical. Everything is explained scientifically, which makes the whole thing more believable and increases the fun. There are even a few good-natured pokes at other vampire lore, which made me laugh out loud.

    The Anti-Vampire Tale is fast-paced and exciting, sure to please both fans and critics of Twilight. Aleman's trademark style shines through, full of poetic descriptions and in-depth character analysis, yet the plot never drags. The first-person narration and changing point of view draw the reader further in. Simply put, anyone who enjoys a good vampire story will love The Anti-Vampire Tale.

    This is a great vampire book. In fact it's my favorite vampire novel I've read so far. I really liked that Ruby is a strong female character. I can't wait to read the next book.

    This is a fantastic vampire series. I'm a bit picky when it comes to vampire books, but I really like this one. The story is original and very exciting. I just love Ruby and Simon. They are my favorite couple in any vampire book or show I've read or watched. Most of all, the vampires in this series are dark and menacing. It's very refreshing to read about vampires that I'd actually be afraid of again. Somehow they've gotten cute and cuddly in other books, and that makes me want to gag. It's got a great story, an exciting relationship, and a lot of action.

    I love this series! Simon is my favorite vampire. This book pulled me right in and made me want to read the rest of the series. The action starts right away, and I was hooked from the beginning.

    Ok

    Sounds just like twilight. Edward tries to save Bella from James and Victoria. Then from newborn vampires to the Voltori. Eward also falls in love with bella in book one. Bella falls in love with Edward. They marry. Then they have a child. Edwards family tries to help her through it but she becomes a newborn vampire. It may happen to the girl in this book soon
