Want Some Vampire Action?? Get Shadow Allegiance by Lacy Yager **Review**

So my last post for today is a review of a fantastic vampire novel. I’ve been quite delayed in getting this review up but it’s up now.

Synopsis

A vampire hunter-turned-vampire seeks to destroy her enemies. Until she falls for one of them.

A Chaser born to kill vampires, sixteen-year-old Rachel Campton has grown up in her older brother’s shadow. Until she wakes up a vampire, her own mortal foe. She’s stronger, faster than her human self, but haunted by bloodlust and the loss of her beloved younger sister. Friendless and lost in enemy territory, Rachel must rely on Alex Wellington, a former nemesis and centuries old vampire who looks like a college football player.

As Rachel goes deep into vamp territory, she learns there is more to the vampire life than killing humans. She also discovers another side to Alex. He is more than a murderer, he is someone that she starts to fall for. Rachel faces the ultimate choice–her new life and unexpected love or the family she left behind, the family that may now want her dead.

My Review

Rating: 4 glasses of wine

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

I was so disappointed in myself when I started reading this book. Not because of the book, but because I’ve haven’t read the first book in the Unholy Alliance series. This was a vampire book of a completely different calibre than to those I’ve read before and I was taken aback at how much I enjoyed the book.

We have a Chaser (Vampire Hunter) who turns into the one thing she hates the most. A Vampire. We have Alex, the Vampire with a heart of gold, who’s been through what Rachel has been through quite a while back (200 years to be exact).

Despite the fact that I haven’t read the first of the books, the story flowed and grasped me and I didn’t expect that because the whole vampire thing hasn’t pulled me in for quite some time. But this book put it in a whole new perspective for me. It had so many angles that went well with the book. Family struggles, friendship struggles, some computer hacking as well as romance.

I enjoyed the fact that the story is told through so many different perspectives. I felt like I got to know each of the characters like they were right there in the room with me and nothing was left undiscovered. With all the twists and turns in this book, it’s hard to put it down and leaves you wanting more. I really can’t wait to read more of Yager’s writing because it is so magnificent. She pulled in another fan and I’m not going anywhere.
