Overview

Ravena & The Resurrected (R&R) features a likable but awkward young woman, a year out of college, whose technically inclined and works for the central library in computer repair. After work, she follows her dreams for meeting vampires, but when she becomes resurrected, she learns that being dead is very different from what she had imagined.

R&R is probably the only vampire novel that puts an entire lair of fang-bearers in the middle of a wooded forest where they must communicate with all sorts of wildlife. Ravena, learns to always remain alert because a highly motivated enemy constantly pursues her and all the resurrected.

NOTE: This book does have romantic yearning, one brief sex scene (not too descriptive) and violence appropriate for a werewolf/vampire novel. Because of these facts, R&R is not appropriate for young children. Bloggers are rating this book a "must read."

If you like the vampire genre then you need to check this out. Its a great book by a budding author who Im glad I found. I am always looking for another author to add to my collection and I do believe I found one! Its a seriously entertaining book and I read it in 3 days! It even has a few places where I had to laugh out loud and has a twist or two that will keep you guessing. Love the paranormal aspect and the intertwining of shape shifters and a little bit of magic thrown in! I say try it, you might just find a new author to follow too! Enjoy!

Ravena & The Resurrected is written by a great story teller. The wonderful journey through the emotions of the mind of a human who has just been turned into a vampire is captivating. Her strategic method of working with her new life as a vampire is exhilerating and refreshing at the same time. No longer does a reader have to wonder how a vampire becomes a vampire or not be aware of the struggle of transformation. The reader will explore a lot of Seattle's history and flavor. The story teller creates wonderful twists and turns in this tale of mythical beings who try to survive their environment. Ravena Doomlah is an inspiration of survival and cunning intelligence of a vampire. This is a must read. I am looking forward to the sequel of this novel.

As this book's author, I agree with the reviews that have already been been posted. What "Ravena & The Resurrected" presents is a variety of completely new adventures that don't just take the main character into Seattle's historic underground, where she hopes to escape her highly motivated enemy, but Ravena also dives deep into the cold waters of Puget Sound. Later, the new lair she joins must enter into the woods, on Mercer Island. That's where the clan of vampires and companion werewolves interact with the local wildlife. WORDS OF CAUTION: Because this is a vampire and werewolf book, there are some very dark elements. There is also one brief sex scene, coupled with a smattering of romantic yearnings. That means "Ravena & The Resurrected" is highly inappropriate for children. If you buy this book, I hope you laugh out loud through all the humorous places and really feel like you've escaped into all the creative paranormal aspects presented here.

Tami Jackson takes vampire pop fiction into an entirely new direction. (No sparkly vampires here!) She captures the true essence of vampire in this upbeat modern tale of vampires in Seattle. Ravena & The Resurrected spares no gory details in the bloodbath that is vampire life but it also captures the Seattle landscape in a meticulously detailed and exciting form! The adventure leaves you breathless right up to the end. This tale fits like a puzzle piece, building on older vampire mythologies. Tami Jackson is truly up there with famous modern vampire writers Darren Shan and Anne Rice. Tami paints a new portrait of the relationships between vampires and werewolves and goes into depth about the mythologies surrounding both. You will find yourself in a world of strict rules and taboos where mythical creatures roam city streets in the broad daylight trying to avoid detection. Fall into step with Ravena Doomlah as she discovers a complex community of fantastical beings, each more bizarre than the next, living right outside her front door. This unique e-book form is eco-friendly and easy to use. The numbering of lines makes it easy to find the spot where you left off, but that assumes you will be able to stop yourself from reading the whole book in one sitting! There is romance and spine-tingling, page-turning action takes place from cover to virtual cover. Tami Jackson's style is witty and charismatic making her in line to be the next R.K. Rowling with the proper publicity! Read the book and join up on the fan-site; this is one literary event you do not want to miss!
