Overview

Zach and Rose had fallen in love during their sophomore year, their worlds completely changed and utterly belonging to each other's. It was the first time either had fallen in love, deeply, purely. Aiming for a future together, plans were interrupted when Zach went missing for three long months, leaving Rose distraught, heartbroken and depressed.

Zach awakens in the dark of a coffin, his memory erased, his life and feelings for Rose forgotten. A strange group of people who identify themselves as his family reveal he has become a vampire, one of the undead, and is now a being with incredible power and a thirst for blood.

However, during Zach's absence, Rose learns of her own secret heritage: she comes from a long line of vampire slayers, hellbent on eradicating the unholy threat of the undead from the face of the Earth. Now, not only does she need to try and get over the young man she loves, she must also come to terms with her new life and what that means for her future.

It is only when her path accidentally crosses with Zach's does lost love begin to surface again.

    Worth reading if you like YA vamp romance

    Plot summary: Zach awakes one day and discovers he's an amnesiac vampire. Rose, his former sweetheart, not only has to contend with losing Zach, but she learns she's a vampire slayer. Can love conquer all? Can they beat the odds?


    The good: The author is not a beginning writer. He knows not to start every sentence with "He"/"She," and he knows how to develop a plot. I really liked the sentimental sweetness.

    What needs work: I couldn't get into the heads of the characters. They don't have strong individual voices, and I couldn't feel anything the author told me they felt.

    All in all, a three-star book. It's a cute, Romeo and Juliet story that, if you like YA vamp stories, is worth adding to your kindle bookshelf.

    Okay

    An okay book, for a free one. Not good enough, as in interesting enough, for me read the rest of the series.
    Vampires vs vampire slayers along with young love, one from each side of the "war."

    Good story but,........

    The mistakes in editing &constant changes in font size make this book difficult to read. Still, it is a well written story, full of discriptive prose.

    Caspherakta, Book One In The Semi-Ari Saga, Prologue

    Blackness in imagination. That was before I found Tion. Tion, my only friend in Caspherakta, was the only survivor of a ruined world. After three centuries of war, Caspherakta was a cloud covered, rock planet. I traveled there often, and this is the story of that world. I didn't know what was happening, but I closed my eyes and found myself in a black clearing. Skeletons of half burned trees stood nearby. I froze, not knowing where I was. I had just been in my room, reading the first book of Left Behind. Now where was I? Something moved out of the corner of my eye. A figure dressed in black creeped along a line of shattered boulders. I slowly moved to a crouch, watching. Then suddenly a light hit the line of boulders, and I visibly jumped in surprise. Looking up, I traced the light back to the moon, shining through a thin layer of black clouds. That was when the mysterious person tackled me.

    Vampires in "ParaRom" done right

    BLOOD OF MY WORLD TRILOGY

    I enjoyed the pace of this trilogy of 3 novellas. One of the things I especially liked was the opening of each novella, which features cool, lyrical poetry that sets the tone for each installment!

    The content focuses on the love story between the characters (which isn't necessarily the same as trashy romance and/or romantic fluff, that's often heavily influenced by the aspect of lust and "how hot/desirable" the two guys involved in the formulaic love triangle are). I GREATLY appreciated that the vampires here did not sparkle, and were not "emo caricatures." The POV (point of view) is third-person, allowing us to view the characters' thoughts and motivations in an unbiased manner.

    The balanced combination of contemporary romance with a more traditional take (depiction of the vampires, the hint of old-school dramatic romantic elements) is maintained throughout all 3 novellas. The end was beautifully written (emotive without being sappy). It's vampires in the "paranormal romance" genre done right.

    BLOOD OF MY WORLD TRILOGY
    By A.P. Fuchs

    I'm not the biggest fan of paranormal romance, especially with the release of books such as THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and the TWILIGHT series (which I do not consider horror). However I was intrigued by a YA novella trilogy by A.P. Fuchs who is perhaps best known for writing about zombies.
    BLOOD OF MY WORLD consists of three novellas-DISCOVERY OF DEATH, MEMORIES OF DEATH, and LIFE OF DEATH-that tell the story of high school sweethearts Zach and Rose. Zach has unexpectedly disappeared, leaving Rose in a state of confusion and worry. Zach has become a vampire and has no memory of his former life, including Rose. One fateful night Zach is taken out to feed by his vampire mother Mira and kills Rose's mother. Experiencing his victim's memories, Zach is confused by the people he sees and what his connection to them may be. In the meantime, in the wake of her mother's death, Rose discovers that she comes from a long line of vampire slayers.
    While dealing with the funeral and her training Rose sees Zach and knows what he has become. Rose's father Marcus also knows what Zach has become and instructs his daughter to stay away from the cemetery. Marcus explains that vampires have no feelings or emotions for anyone in their former lives, which is what makes them such effective killers. Zach tries to understand what is happening to him and what Rose meant to him. Zach's vampire family seems ready to accept Rose, even though she's a human. Ultimately Zach will be forced to choose between his vampire family and Rose, and truths will come out that help Zach determine where his loyalties lie.
    Fuchs has written a very good story in BLOOD OF MY WORLD. The characters are well-developed and his vampires' characteristics are quite interesting. I enjoyed the Shakespeare-esque story of the young lovers from different and clashing worlds-vampire and slayer. What I also liked about this trilogy is that it doesn't have the creepiness that most other vampire romances targeting young girls have. Zach is only a vampire for a few weeks when he and Rose meet again, he's not a hundred-plus year old vampire "in love" with a teen girl. In other words, Zach isn't a dirty old man, he's still just a kid. The horror elements are really good, too. The vampires have ulterior motives that ultimately drive the story-they aren't an afterthought. The romance aspect is a bit intense at times, so if paranormal romance isn't your thing, then this is not the trilogy for you. Overall BLOOD OF MY WORLD is a really good read for its target audience.

    Fun Quick Read

    I will have to say that I enjoyed Blood of My World novella trilogy. It had enough differences to make it stand out as a paranormal romance read but also infused with some of the vampire traditions that we know already.

    In Discovery of Death, Zach Mohansen wakes up as a vampire and is engulfed in love from his "family" which includes his mom Mira (Morticia description), dad Rain, brother Wil and a sister named Cassandra aka Cassie. Because he is newly transformed he doesn't remember his human life right away. We are also introduced to Rose Jordan, Zach's love, who is the daughter of vampire slayers. Rose is emotionally torn with the disappearance of her love (think Twilight) but knows life must go one. At this time she doesn't know about the secret world of vampires and slayers.

    Memories of Death continues Zach's journey as he starts to remember all that he has lost. He remembers Rose and seeks her out. Rose has been introduced to the slayers life and now must take up the tradition. When the two meet again there is no denying what they had. Now they are torn between their two families. We also learn that Mira has a more sinister reason for turning Zach.

    Life of Death is the conclusion to this roller coaster of emotions. Zach has been betrayed by the family he thought loved him and Rose has lost everyone that she has loved except for Zach. Will their love see them through?

    Blood of My World compiles lots of aspects that I love in paranormal romance. It has the bloody fight scenes, the mushy love scenes and the shocking betrayals that we have grown to love of this genre. Fun quick read. I was able to finish all three stories in an afternoon.
