BLOOD THIRST follows the transformation of Angela Trenton as she becomes a vampire. Attacked and left to die, she is faced with uncertainty and fear as her body begins to change. She is aided by another vampire named Elijah, and he becomes her mentor. He teaches her how to hunt, and quench her ever-demanding thirst for blood. He also reveals to her the name of her attacker – Matthew. She’s determined to hunt Matthew down and kill him. But when Elijah leaves her, she is forced to push her hatred of Matthew aside so that she can learn the real truth of why he committed her to everlasting darkness.
ARC for Review. OMGosh Thanks for the opportunity to Read-N-Review this first Installment of Charleston Vampire Chronicles – Blood Thirst by L. A. Freed. I does NOT disappoint.
First off I went into this blind, not knowing what to expect. WOW! I was drawn in from the start when Angela Trenton is attacked and left for dead. As she wonders what is happening to her, Elijah, an older vampire enters her world and the story takes off into an amazing journey through Angela’s vampiric transformation. Angela is dead and Ainjul is born, I think because Elijah is from a different time, his pronunciation is different, anyway, Ainjul is the name used for Angela from this point on.
As Ainjul goes through the 3 month transformation, the author’s writing describes what is happening in detail making this story uniquely different from all others I have read.. She has even a canine vampire, now that is an awesome twist, the name of this canine is, well let’s just say, fun. When Ainjul finally meets Matthew the story gets really intriguing, a real page turner for sure.
The world is very well described, consistent, full of intense emotions, mystery, suspense, terror, and a little of well placed humor. I enjoyed reading this immensely… The characters are well described bringing their victories and defeats to life.. Absolutely Amazing..
I would recommend this read for those 18+ and over due to its mature theme.
