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.

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.

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 had some trouble getting into this book, but no trouble finishing it. Some of of the premise was a little hard to take, but the storyline wasn't bad.

Vampire Shift is the first in the Kiera Hudson Series that is written by Tim O’Rourke. Kiera is a newly graduated police constable who is sent to a small village on the coast of England to replace a constable that has disappeared. This tiny coastal town has no cell reception, no radio reception, and the phones lines are always down. And, there’s been a lot of people killed or gone missing over the years. Kiera has special abilities that allow her to notice little things that most people would not see. This gives her an advantage in investigative work and comes in helpful in determining what is happening to the people of this village. The action starts right away in this story with the death of a little boy. Bodies pile up quickly as Kiera stirs the pot. She’s a straightforward type of person who tells it like she sees it. The local police station is not impressive. The three constables there do not appear to be too concerned with the rules. Kiera is the most rounded character. The others are somewhat two-dimensional. This book comes across as a young adult romance. It’s an easy read and OK story. Once I started the story, I was able to finish it. I would recommend this for those who like vampire novels. Young adults will most likely love this story.
