I'm a sucker for vampire books, though don't care for stories with excessive gore or sexual content. Running Home was a fresh take on the good old fashioned vampire love story. The writing is fluid and magical, with hints of character humor (I laughed out loud a couple times). I love how Hutchings incorporates Japanese mythology/folklore as a twist. I can't wait to see where the sequel takes us! I enjoyed how flawed characters were combined with magical elements, feelings and desires. I swear every time Nicholas turned up, I could smell cookies in my house ;) I loved his powerful allure, and yet he was at times vulnerable. Ellie is such a wonderful MC. Throughout the story she grows as a character and I can't WAIT to see where we follow her in Running Away! Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book!

Full disclosure: Julie is my writing partner. Twice a week, she invades my house with a six pack of something. I feed her. Mayhem and foolishness ensues. Books are born. Like this one. I was the first person who ever got to read Running Home. I read it all in one sitting. I was so in awe that my friend that I've known since elementary school wrote a real book. It draws you in with it's layers and it's side characters. I love Kat, Ellie's roommate. And I love Chris Lynch. He's wonderfully horrible. But Running Home tricks you. It makes you think one thing, because that's what Ellie has convinced herself of. When you learn the truth, you are just as floored as Ellie. You feel her anxiety of trying to figure out how to fix the situation. This is why I love first person narration. You get to be surprised right along with the narrator. This is the first in a series. Julie's got a lot of work coming down the pike, and you want to keep your eye on her so like me, you can say you knew her when.
