Amaranthine, by Lanie Jacobs
Will we ever get bored of vampires? After the huge success of The Twilight Saga, which book sales are estimated at 100 million copies, a big horde of blood-suckers hit stores and libraries all over the world.
Personally, I don’t mind reading about vampires and other night-crawling creature, but lately this unusual genre of literature not only suffers from a lack of originality but also from a lack of artistic quality.
Lanie Jacobs though doesn’t pass unnoticed, her fresh voice and creative style make Amaranthine an interesting debut novel.
Khalida’s life is turned upside down when she finds out she belongs to a rare breed of half-vampires with great powers. Her rareness puts her and everyone around in great danger, as long as the Ubils, evil vampires, will try to steal her powers and kill her in the end. At her side there will be Luke, a charming vampire who would take on the world to save her. Will Khalida be able to save herself?
Good dialogs, intriguing characters and a fast paced story make this book absolutely enjoyable, you’ll get in love with Miss Jacob’s writing style.
