Vampire Next Door
on 21 April 2014
I downloaded this title after reading the 'blurb' - which is unusual for two reasons. 1. I generally use the look inside feature for a new-to-me author and 2. This is a vampire story and... I was pretty sure I was 'off' those, after reading far too many of them in the past.
However, after coming across this author via twitter, then Facebook, and finally here on Amazon, and being impressed with the 'blurb', my gut was telling me to take a chance - which I suppose is a win for both me and social media?
Once I began to read, I found that this is rather more than just a vampire tale. It's actually a story about loss, the ability to love more than once in our lives, and the joy of rediscovery. Add in evil intent and obsession... and you have a little gem!
There were some points within the plot where I wanted to know 'more', and there are questions that I still feel I want answered--but as I'm hoping this won't be the last story I get to read about Sebastian and Jane, I'm willing to forgive the author on those points... and it certainly didn't stop me from enjoying this story.
Also, if this is one of the first books by this author, I have high hopes for the stories that her creativity and talent will produce in the future. The ability to write is the start of a journey for both the author and their readers - and this is a very good start! I look forward to reading more of Angela Snyder's work.
