Ward yourself, slayers, Promageddon is coming!
Morgan Taylor-Jackson can’t wait for high school to end. In six months she leaves for UCLA and says goodbye to La Jolla, California and her parents’ messy divorce. But when Morgan is bitten by a four-year-old boy, she becomes infected with a mysterious condition. Fever, insomnia, and a new bustline are only the beginning; Morgan morphs from nerd to bombshell.
As far as Van Xander is concerned, all vampires are evil, even the ones who reject human sacrifice and call themselves Puritans. When Helsing Incorporated sends Van to La Jolla to investigate the local coven, Morgan is his prime target. Pretending to be interested in her, Van asks Morgan out and puts her through a series of tests to determine her killer nature.
Morgan is thrilled to be dating a hot guy like Van and falls for him hard. As Van strings Morgan along, he grows increasingly guilty. Morgan is kind, compassionate, and a gooey romantic. Just as Van’s mind begins to change, evil forces threaten everything. When prom night arrives, there are only two ways out of the ballroom: death or immortality.
Review by Candy:
Bite me says it all. That was not what I was expecting but enjoyed it nonetheless. I would describe this read as a young adult and supernatural genre. A girl still in high school and vampires with slayers thrown in. The beginning of a love story on the side too.
One night Morgan has dinner at her mom’s boyfriend’s house when at some point doesn’t remember the evening at all just the school day leading to. She becomes ill with strange bite marks are her neck that seems to be the cause of her infection from an insect. Things begin to change for Morgan and she doesn’t understand why.
Van is a slayer on a mission to find out who’s been killing in the name of vampires in Carlsbad. His targets of interests are Lukas and Esma Siban but they are considered Puritan vampires (you know the type that doesn’t drink human blood), Van doesn’t believe it but keeps an eye on them anyway. He meets Morgan the newborn who is unaware and immediately likes her but he shouldn’t because he may have to end her life what there is of it. He puts here through a series off test will she pass or fail?
Louise I loved morgan and Van and the story that brings them together. It wasn’t what I thought it would be for a vampire story. You did a great job bringing this story to life and it flows from the two main characters with the background characters as well. Once I got started I didn’t want to put it down. It was intriguing with some suspense thrown in. A different tale for vampires this one, Puritans who don’t drink human blood and the blood addicts that do (the good vs the bad). A great start to this series can’t wait for Esma’s story that’s next. A must read and look forward to the rest of the series! 5 Stars!
