But when Kiera falls in love with Police officer Luke Bishop, not only is her mind and her heart opened to a terrifying new world, she comes to suspect that Luke might be involved in the killings.

    Great start to a new series! Highly Recommended!

    Vampire shift is the first book in the Kiera Hudson series by Tim O’Rourke. I was pleasantly surprised with the book and cannot wait to start Vampire Wake (#2 in the series). The book follows Kiera Hudson, a new police graduate, as she starts her first assignment at a post. She is sent to the secluded town The Ragged Cove. She accepts the assignment originally because she was drawn by the thrill of real action because of a serial killer that has plagued the area. She quickly realizes what a dangerous situation she has really put herself into. She is a great detective/constable and really knows her stuff however what she learns as she uses her “gift” and digs deeper changes her life forever. She doesn’t back down and really holds her own. I loved the way it was written; you really get a feel of being in the moment and there with her. I loved the different twist on vampires; it’s not just the typical blood sucking horror creatures or the romantic mind manipulators. There were many surprises while reading. Just when I thought I had followed clues and figured out things there would be a twist that blindsided me. I am anxious to start the next book and see where things go for Kiera. I would defiantly recommend the book. I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

    The next great Vampire type series. Please make this into a movie!!!

    Kiera is a brand new cop, with a brand new job at a place called Ragged Cove her mom vanished 3 years ago she proms her dad she would find her, but he died even before she got out of the academy . So when she gets to Rugged cove she knows after 20 plus murdered and even more missing people somthing is really wrong here. Kiera can see things or should i say she can see everything! Every little detail - the color of a dyed hair in the hand of a new victim in the dark in a open field. Not to mention the flying winged creatures she can't figure out what they are or that everyone says she will be working the "vampire shift" or first night. THIS IS A GREAT SERIES! I read the first one 400 plus pages in less than two days. This needs to be the next Twilight type movie GREAT STORY! Can't wait to read the next 3 cause i am already half way through the second one.

    An AMAZING Tale!

    O¿Rourke has done it again, creating an intriguing masterpiece, completely original and captivating. This vampire novel is not like anything I¿ve ever read before, and O¿Rourke¿s combination of police knowledge and vampire lore makes for a riveting new series starring Kiera Hudson, a young aspiring policewoman. Complete with suspense, mystery, and intrigue, Vampire Shift takes the reader on a journey into the depths of The Ragged Cove, a place where many have ventured, but few have returned.

    I love that Kiera is a strong female lead, possessing the gift of sight where so many others miss vital clues. An asset to any police force, Kiera comes on the scene in The Ragged Cove only to be met with disdain by the current police force. The fact that Kiera does not crumple and stays true to herself, trusting her instincts, makes her an outstanding, strong character that readers will quickly come to love.

    O¿Rourke weaves together a story of horror and romance in this first book of the series, and I cannot wait for the sequel to release. I highly recommend this novel to all readers, both young and old alike. Five stars to this magnificent novel.

    I absolutely recommend this book and really the entire series. It will keep you on the edge, you won't be able to get enough of the characters. The Author is amazing and knows how to capture his readers. LOVE IT!! There is also the uncut version that I can't wait to get my hands on. Reading again and just can't get enough of them. All of Tim's books are amazing, seriously just pick one up and you wont be disappointed.

    A Good Read

    With a twist on the traditional vampire story, this book has some surprisingly good deviations that will wrap you in the story until you can't put it down. There are plenty of curve balls thrown in to keep you guessing. Very well written although there were a few errors.

    I initially chose this book because the artwork cover caught my attention....I hate to say it but sometimes the cover sells the book. HOWEVER, if the book cant hold my attention after the first couple of chapters it either goes back to the store for a refund/exchange or it lands on the library donation pile. With this being said all I can say is that THIS was a GREAT read!! I think I finished it in 90 minutes and then I started right in on the 2nd book Vampire Wake. If you like paranormal and mystery books then you will really enjoy this one. It is well written, with a nice plot twist to it...I love to read and if Mr O'Rourke continues to write stories as interesting as this one, well then he has just picked up a fan for life.
