Overview

Who you are on the inside is more important that what you are on the outside... But not when you?re fated to be a lab rat for the rest of your life.

Sixteen-year-old Tessa, a vampire with weird throwback human genes, is an outsider in both worlds. Always the odd one. Now, imprisoned in a blood farm, she fights to free herself and rejoin her family and friends. Especially one young male vamp.

Cody, eighteen and the youngest of the long line of ancient flyer vampires, wants Tessa back at his side where she belongs ? even as he struggles with conflicting emotions about his best friend's kid sister-turned-hottie.

Jared, the cute human who?d befriended Tessa, is relieved to be rescued and wants to see the trussed-up, drugged humans in the warehouse taken care of. Only he?s freaked that the people who rescued him are vampires...and then he finds out the truth about Tessa...

Thankfully, the rescue team comes to take over the warehouse and rescue the victims... or have they?

    [This review also appears on Andi's Young Adult Books. I received a
    complimentary ebook in exchange for my honest review.] I was grateful
    to have Book 2 on my hands, as Book 1 ended on such a cliffhanger. I
    didn't want to wait around to find out what was going to happen to Tessa
    and her friends and family. Book 2 felt slower to me. It seemed like a
    lot of the time the characters were just roaming around the mysterious
    building. They often separate and someone ends up going missing, so
    everyone has to go find that missing person. I had a hard time
    understanding how they got away with being there, with none of the bad
    guys being quickly alerted. Of course, you're never really sure who is a
    good guy and who is a bad guy. Those you think you can trust really are
    not trustworthy. Tessa continues to grow into her vampire side,
    surprising her friends and family. She has quickly developed a take
    charge kind of attitude that no one is used to seeing. She is also
    quickly honing her skills, as being thrust into a war situation has
    given her no other choice. It feels like the war is only just
    beginning, despite any resolutions made within this story. It again
    reads like watching a TV show or soap opera unfold on the screen. Each
    chapter consists of various scenes, illustrating a portion of each
    character's situation. Where the chapters break would be logical
    commercial breaks on the screen. This does keep the story flowing. It
    also ends again with a cliffhanger, making you want to read the next
    installment. It hasn't yet been published, but I look forward to having
    the chance to check it out when it is.

    This was a a wonderful, totally enthralling story. My only complaint was that I have to wait to find out what happens next.

    This is the second book in The Family Blood Ties series. I strongly suggest reading the first book before reading this one. This book picks up right where book one leaves off. Not to mention you'll miss an awesome story if you skip book one.

    There was so much action and intrigue! Every time I thought I knew what was going on, the plot twisted or turned. It left me gripping my seat in anticipation and I can not wait to read the next one.

    Tessa became more confident with herself in this book and I loved it.

    I recommend this to everyone who likes vampire books, YA paranormal books, or just wants to read an exciting story.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I honestly feel that this book was terrific!
