THE TURNING {Blood Ties book One} by Jennifer Armintrout


I'm no coward. I want to make that perfectly clear. But after my life turned into a horror movie, I take fear a lot more seriously now. I finally became Dr. Carrie Ames just eight months ago. Then I was attacked in the hospital morgue by a vampire. Just my luck.
So now I'm a vampire, and it turns out I have a blood tie to the monster who sired me. The tie works like an invisible leash and I'm bound to him no matter what I do. And of course he's one of the most evil vampires on earth. With my sire hell-bent on turning me into a soulless killer and his sworn enemy set to exterminate me, things couldn't get much worse -- except I'm attracted to them both.
Drinking blood, living as an immortal demon and being a pawn between two warring vampire factions isn't exactly how I'd imagined my future. But as my father used to say, the only way to conquer fear is to face it. So that's what I'll do. Fangs bared.


  1. Ive read this before.. and I loved it. But to be fair in my blog I figured I would re-read it. =)

  2. ****
    I love how this book is from the Vamp's point of view. Shes torn between two men.. torn between good and evil. The book is written well. You can visualize very well what the author is creating. You feel as though you are there.
    One thing I did notice more the 2nd time reading was the face that the vampires in this series faces change. Not just fangs that drop but that their faces more or less have snouts and disfigure from their normal human look. Which in movies when they do that I'm instantly turned off. Seems unrealistic to me. I guess good thing bout reading books is that you kinda of create your own "look" to the characters. So I guess reading this I skip over that description. Overall I like this mini series. The author is local which also is cool.
