    Midnight: Century of Vampires by Ami Blackwelder is the first no

    Midnight: Century of Vampires by Ami Blackwelder is the first novella in the Century of Vampires Trilogy. It centres on Aura and Mark, two survivors fighting to keep it that way. 




    It's the year 2125 and vampires have taken over the world. They rule from 6pm to 6am and the only "safe" way to fight is bombing them as they sleep. No one is sure how vampires came to be, but some suspect there was a mutation to the human genome. Survivors are forced to hold down fort in abandoned buildings in small groups, hiding the twelve hours vampires hunt. 




    Our two protagonists have pretty similar backstories (as do all the survivors). Aura's mother was killed 5 years previously and her brother was taken and never seen again. She never knew her father. Mark's parents were killed when he was ten and his sister killed five years later.




    The vampires of this world are more like the original vampires literature used to create than the ones around nowadays, in that they are dangerous killers. They sleep like bats, living in caves and hanging from the ceiling. They only become "beautiful" and "celestial" at midnight, appearing hollow skinned and creature-like before then. Their flesh rots on their bones and their eyes glow red.




    Scattered throughout are a few illustrations, which are nice enough. Full-coloured illustrations for those interested.




    I did find this book a little confusing, nothing is really explained and it just felt a little rushed. I don't know if questions will be answered in later parts though. I still found the story interesting. It's not really anything new, but then it doesn't have to be. I fully intend on reading the next two parts and (as novellas) they'll be quick enough reads. 




    One final issue, if you buy the kindle version, do NOT read the book club questions at the end as they hold definite spoilers- though reading them I found a few points predictable, especially if you're familiar at all with this genre.




    If you like dystopian worlds, dangerous vampires and young adult books why not give this a try?

    Great Start to the Series - I can't wait for the next books

    It is 2125. Vampires have taken over the world. Most humans live between 6 am and 6 pm. Those that don’t are eaten. Mark and Aura are two people that are trying to survive but also kill as many vampires that they can. They have been together for a couple years and have become a good team. But there is something about Aura. She can sense the vampires, knows different tricks to keep them safe, and although she is petite, she packs one heck of a kick.

    There are also a couple humans in the Underground that are working to defeat the vampires. Aura discovered them and visits them regularly. She tends to get sick and they provide the medicine she needs. They also have a vampire repellant that Aura and Mark use every night to keep the vampires from breaching the doors and windows of their home.

    One night while Mark and Aura are out, they come across a vampire that has been hunting Aura for several years. Although they escape, they keep running into him. At one point several vampires attack them and Aura is taken. Now it is up to Mark to save her.

    I really liked this book. It is actually a collection of the first three novellas in the series. I loved the concept. Here are these two people that are trying to survive and kill the vampires any way that they can.

    I will admit that there are a couple things that kind of bothered me. Mark is rather whiney. When Aura is kidnapped he started acting like an emo brat. I do like a guy in the story really loving a woman and willing to fight for her. But I’m more into the strong guys, not the ones that become obsessed stalker types.

    Having said that, I really did enjoy the stories. I will be getting the next books as soon as they come out. This is a story that I think most paranormal romance readers will like.

    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
