Overview

Vampire Affliction: The Vampires of Athens, Book Two by Eva Pohler

Gertie has become friends, and has possibly fallen in love, with both a demigod and a vampire, who happen to be at war. Although she sympathizes with the vampire uprising and has even become a vampire herself, she distrusts the leaders, especially when they plan to kill humans to cull out the demigods before ambushing them. As the three unlikely friends discover that neither side is perfectly good or evil or right or wrong, they work together to try to bring about the best outcome; but, when their parents and the gods undermine their efforts and hang them out to dry, the three teens realize they're on their own and no one will save them.

This series just keeps getting better!!! This was an absolutely amazing continuation of the series, and I couldn't put it down. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me think, it showed that sometimes it isn't about good and evil, but perspective and communication, and it sated my need for more Greek mythology Pohler style! There were some major feels in this book, but it was definitely worth it. I absolutely can not wait for the next book!!!

*I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.  There is nothing that I don't love about Eva Pohler and her books!  This book is no exception!  We pick back up with our confused characters after Book One leaves off and we are on a roll.  All of the characters are fictional but Pohler is able to pull bits of history and Greek Mythology and intertwine all three! It's an amazing feat and her writing is flawless and pulls you right in!

Vampire Affliction picks up where book 1 left off with Gertie being a vampire and learning how to adapt these changes with the help of Jeno. The two of them along with Hector are trying to stop Jeno's dad from doing something real bad (not gonna tell ya, you'll need to read it to find out ;) ). Although Gertie is happy to be with Jeno and is adjusting to her new life, she is missing her family and will do anything to protect them from what is being planned by Jeno's dad. I absolutely love Eva's take on this with the combination of Greek Mythology and Vampirism. She takes two very different subjects and combines them effortlessly. The story flows very nice and just when you think things are going in one direction, there is a twist and you are pulled in another :) Great job!

Vampire Affliction by Eva Pohler is the second book in the Vampires of Athens series. It begins right where book 1 Vampire Addiction left off. So if you have not read Vampire Addiction, stop right now and go get that book and read it first. In this story Gertie is struggling to deal with her change to a vampire. She has Jeno to help her and support her, but she misses her human friends and family. When the vampires plan a rebellion she has to choose between her new vampire family and her human family. The story is very well written and the plot flows smoothly with lots of twists and turns and excitement. I love the characters that Ms. Pohler has created and I have become especially attached to Gertie, Hector, and Jeno. I like the love triangle between the three and I think it works very well in the story. I also like how all three of them have a friendship that works even with the love triangle. I am a huge fan of these books and I can't wait to read the next one. The ending of book 2 left me in shock yet again and I can't wait to see what happens next.

I love Eva Pohler's books, all ages can read them. They are not dirty in any way. I have even had my girls reading them. I love all things Greek and when you add Vampires to the Greek Gods you truly can't go wrong. Eva always tells a great story and keeps you wanting even more. She is an amazing story teller and this book proves it yet again. So make sure you pick up all of her books today

This is a story that will truly be enjoyed by readers of all ages. It is an easy, light read that really packs a punch. It is well written with an inviting flow that allows readers to delve deep into the story at hand. But it is also a series that needs to be read in order for context, especially since this novel picks up right where the last one left off. The plot is well thought out and excitingly upbeat. I’ve great a great deal of work by this author in the past, & enjoyed it all, but I must say that this may just be my favourite yet. Pohler’s mix of vampires, Greek mythology, and mythology is inescapable. She draws you into her world and holds you throughout. Pohler takes actual Greek mythology as her basis and shows readers what could happen if we still believed it were true today. She also gives it a paranormal twist to take it out of this world. Pohler’s unique vampires are very well developed. I love how she keeps the general concept of blood drinking vampires and makes them all her own. She does all this with an underlying message of anti-bullying and acceptance that really sticks with you. The well-developed characters in this novel are very approachable and easy to form opinions about. There were some that I loved, and others that I absolutely hated, but very few (if any) that I was ambivalent about. She continues to develop the individuals that we met in the first novel and introduces us to some unique new ones in a way that will catch your attention. No one is unimportant in this cast. It was the perfect cast for this novel. I really love how Gertie reads things, all available accounts of them, and combines those accounts to come up with her own conclusion like a true academic. Her chatterbox personality never failed to make me giggle. Also, the differing speech patterns for the characters speaking in Greek and those speaking in English make the translations and the contrast between the two really stand out. My final thoughts? The quest of the Demigods! Boo Yeah!!! Anyone who knows Greek mythology will understand and those who don’t just may learn a thing or two while having a blast with this unforgettable tale.
