She is then told the truth about her true parentage and the reason why she ages so slowly. She meets Alec, who is a vampire on the same night and is informed that he is her guardian. Despite the fact that she appears to accept most of the information, which is classed as myth, she also finds some of the implications hard to accept. After leading a normal life, she now finds that she is in danger if she doesn't abide by what is expected from her.
She is attracted to Alec as much as he is attracted to her but she is more intent on staying true to her boyfriend but once all is revealed, the sequence of events takes a turn for the worse.
This novel is not the usual vampire story and is full of mystery, suspense, love passion as well as betrayal. It is one of the books which is hard to put down. The story is beautifully written and just when you think nothing can go wrong, it does. I was totally engrossed in this tale and this novel would appeal to those who like reading about the paranormal. I look forward to read the next instalment in this series.
Alec is the vampire destined to protect Laura in exchange for the gift she bestows upon him. He has protected her mother for the last fifty years so why should this be different?
Bloodgifted is written in the 1st person from Laura and Alec's point of views. This subjective style allows the reader to be a fly on the wall and experience Laura's confusion and devastation when she discovers her true self. Alec is sexy and alpha but glimpsing his innermost thoughts reveals his kindness and unexpected attraction to Laura.
The plot is twisty and every conclusion throws up another question ensuring you keep turning the pages. I loved the apparent ordinariness of the heroine and the existence of a paranormal world operating in secret in mainstream human society.
Bloodgifted shares many qualities of the L. J Smith young adult series Nightworld which I loved. An enthralling mix of history, mystery, paranormal, romance and suspense I can't wait to read the next chapter in the story.
A refreshingly different take on Vampires, this book brimmed with action, adventure and romance, making it an exciting and entertaining read.I couldn't turn the pages fast enough, I was so invested in the lives of Laura and Alec.
Having read an excerpt from Bloodpledge,the continuation of The Dantonville Legacy, I am looking forward to reading the next in the series from this very talented Australian author.
Poor editing: The manuscript needs a thorough edit for grammatical and spelling errors/typos - I often found myself re-reading a sentence that didn't make sense due to a word addition or omission.
Inconsistencies in the plot: Due to her unusual heritage (which she only discovers at the age of 50) Laura ages very slowly and appears to be half her age - yet she was able to go travelling abroad in her 'youth' and purchase a house in her thirties. According to the plot, she would have seemed too young to achieve these things on her own...the 'suspicious looks at customs' isn't a satisfactory covering explanation for the reader.
In terms of the story, when Alec is first told he has to be Laura's guardian he is immediately resentful about several aspects of the deal that are forced upon him by Luc - his 'sire' to whom he still owes five more years of servitude - which had me rubbing my hands in glee at the prospect of a feisty relationship between himself and Laura (of course ending in true love) - except the fighting, resentful spirit fizzles out and is replaced by the mundane insta I-will-love-you-for-eternity stuff the second they meet. I felt cheated!
Despite all this, it was an easy read and the story was compelling enough to keep the pages turning. I may read another if the price is right!
NB I've called this a romance for 'grown-ups' as the human(ish) characters are too old for it to count as YA, like many other vampire romances.
