Review - Blood and Light

Blood and Light
By Rue Volley

Enter into the world of 16 year old Rue Volley...who up until one fateful night at a party, thought she was "normal" or as "normal" as she could be. But "normal" does not include being a vampire...a truth about herself that she will soon discover.

Rue Volley lives in the quiet little town of Calvary, Minnesota...nestled in the thick woods lining the great lakes. Rue, along with her brother Kai have lived an otherwise calm life up until their Mother was committed into Rolling River Asylum, after she mysteriously stopped speaking to anyone. Rue is convinced by her brother to attend a party on her birthday and after she experiences something that she cannot explain, she and everyone in her world is thrown into madness. Join Rue on this epic journey, 6 books in all, as she struggles with grief, love, humor, old crushes, new found infatuations, hot boys AND vampires, lots and lots of them.

 This first book in the series starts you on a journey that you will find hard to ignore and once you start reading you will be hooked...or perhaps bitten.

My review:

The author has created an interesting new world of vampires and legends.  And I was really looking forward to reading it and finding out all about this new world of vampires and lore.  These are not your normal everyday vampires that drink blood, they absorb energy and can go out in the day and can use spells and wards and glamour.  They are really a very mixed race of creatures among many of the types of paranormal beings we are used too.  The author really has created a great and interesting new world.

However it is a very long book, which normally wouldn't bother me, but I had a lot of trouble getting into it.  I think its a great story and could make an excellent book and series.  But it started out slow and just ended up dragging a bit too much for me to really get into it and care about the characters.  I think that if the story was tightened up I would have loved it.
