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.
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.
