Blood Drug

27 Jan

This book is like a drug. Powerful as if entering a different reality.  Only problem is you may never want to come back.  Blood Sisters draws you into a parallel world of mystery, violence, and eternity.  Much more gritty and thoughtful than most books in the Vampire genre.

GET Blood Sisters before the blood runs out

Michelle Scott has a way of almost injecting reality into the reader. When the main character, Starla, grabs the front of a moving car and lifts it off the ground, Michelle compares the act to grabbing a burning dragon by the throat.  I must confess, if Michelle creates ten more of these books in the series, I will be buying and reading every single one.

bookPumper chats with the maestro herself:

1 – Starla can’t accept being a vampire, but she can’t accept being human either. Where does she go from here?

What Starla doesn’t realize is that she’s an optimist. It was hope that kept her looking for Jordan, and hope that made her take on an army of vampires. After everything she went through, she values her friendships even more.

Now, her life is certainly different than it was when she was human, but it’s not all bad. She’s patching things up with her family and Jordan’s brother; she’s still trying to make vampire art; and she stuck to her promise and let Mabel drop a piano off her balcony.

The best part is that Starla realizes that life holds a lot of options for her. Even though she may never see the sun again, her life isn’t as dark as it used to be.

2 – Have you ever been, or are you now, a member of the Vampire Underground?

The first rule about the Vampire Underground is that you never talk about the Vampire Underground.

3 – If a vampire marries a human, are the babies little vampires?

Well, no, actually. Vampire/human offspring can be very nasty. You know that monster from Jeepers Creepers? Vampire baby.

4 – Is human blood the most powerful drug on the planet?

It falls somewhere between chocolate and aspirin. But, unfortunately, human blood is only effective if you’re a vampire. If a human tries it, well, it’s just nasty.

5 – Can you teach me to pick vampires out of a crowd?

The last time I attempted that, I barely escaped with my life, and the friend I’d taken with me now travels among the undead. So yeah, I probably could show you how to do it, but it’s a little risky.

Now GRAB It and get high HERE

    This book sounds like a depart from the regular vampire books. It sounds like it has more depth and thought out characters. Hopefully the book will have the same wit as the author displayed in this review ;P. Looking forward to reading this one.

    I am a bookworm and love mystery, suspense and action. This book looks interesting and going by the review promises to be a gripping story. I look forward to reading it.

    This book does sound very interesting. This isn’t my normal genre that I read However I must say I am interested and may try this book out. Vampire books have been around for so long but with all the new vampire movies and t.v. series many more people are becoming interested in this genre. Thanks for the review.

      Hey Heather, good point. The Vampire Genre is a bit saturated. But this book is unique. I think it stands above the competition.

    It’s too hard now to recognize between humans and vampire, when the man become more greedy and forget the main elements in his humanity then no matter to be vampire or human or anything else, great book anyway, it’s title is attractive…

      Mike, I’m not sure what you mean exactly. But it’s the thought that counts. ;)

    This book is really interesting because i like the subject of supernatural, paranormal, psychological. i’d like to know more about it.

    I must admit that what caught my attention was the response to the Vampire Underground. There’s nothing like a nice, covert society that keeps to itself. It sounds like this book would be a must for the Vampire cult lovers. It does show some intrigue.

      @Star Gal: We are on the same wavelength.

    I have to admit, I’m kind of sick of all the vampire novels that have been written lately. They generally lack substance, good writing style, etc. The dilemmas and plot points have grown tired and cliche. All that being said, this review was useful in that it told me that this book might be different. Thanks!

    If the book is as good as you say, it must be phenomenal indeed. But this review makes the book sound almost too good to be true. I’ve read many books with what Stephen King refers to as “the gotta”. As in, “I gotta finish this” or “I gotta find out what happens next!”

    But I have never read a book that hooked me like a DRUG. That’s strong phrasing indeed. I might have to look for this book based on your review, but I do fear it won’t live up the expectations you’ve created.

    • Editor January 28, 2011 at 4:21 am #

      Hey Jason, fair enough. But just read the sample to test it. That’s what I did before I asked the Author for a review copy.
