Blood Sisters by Michelle Scott
Book description (from Goodreads) –
Starla had always imagined that becoming a vampire would make her popular, glamorous and wealthy. But after she and her best friend, Jordan, become undead, Starla realizes one thing: a vampire’s life sucks.
Since there’s no turning back, she tries to make the best of her situation, but it isn’t easy. Especially not after her friend abandons her to serve the oldest, most powerful vampire in the city. Or when she gets on the bad side of a gang of vampires who’ve taken over the zoo. Or when she meets a really cute boy and ends up falling in love, only to find out that there’s a major problem…she’s a vampire, and he’s a vampire killer.
When Starla gets her wish and is turned into a vampire, along with her best friend Jordan, she thinks that all her dreams have come true. Expecting wealth, power, beauty, talent and a fun filled glamorous life, Starla is ready to embrace her new life as a vampire.
There’s just one problem: being a vampire is not what Starla thought it would be. Homeless, hungry and deserted by her best friend, Starla is all alone and begins to think that she made a terrible mistake. Unsure whether to embrace her inner demon or try to hold on to her humanity, Starla is lost and confused. Then she meets Mercer, and even though he is vampire slayer, he may just be the one person, who can help her…if she will let him.
Michelle Scott creates a vampire story with a twist, in her novel Blood Sisters, one that I thoroughly enjoyed. In the majority of novels that feature vampires, their lifestyle in glamorised – power, beauty, wealth, talent, strength…the vampire has everything they could desire. In Blood Sisters, the life of a vampire is very different, one that I have not read before and I found it very interesting. It was great to read a story where I was surprised by how the majority of the vampires lived.
At first I found it hard to connect with the main character, Starla, but the more I read, the more I grew to like her character and by the end of the novel I was cheering for her. Blood Sisters is not just a novel about vampires, it’s about a girl who is trying to find out who she is and what she really wants in life.
Michelle Scott takes the world of vampires and gives it a new voice in her novel Blood Sisters. A unique and enjoyable read, one that I recommend to all vampire fans.
