This novel is told in the present tense, something I usually dislike, but somehow it worked for me in Tegan's Blood. When we first meet her, Tegan is an emotional mess. Her boyfriend's suicide a couple of months ago has rendered her a prisoner in her own apartment. She is afraid to go outside, drinks too much, and is generally not looking after her physical or emotional wellbeing. Her good friend Nicky determines that enough is enough, and forces her out on a girls' night to the club Crimson, a Goth-type vampire bar. The vampire persona is not just a theme; the place is run by Ethan Cristescu "a beautiful bastard" in Tegan's words, and a powerful vamp of Romanian heritage, naturally. He quickly sets his sights on her, and not unlike Sookie Stackhouse from the Charlaine Harris books, Tegan suddenly finds herself immersed in the deadly world of vampire politics.
The setting is Tribane, a city divided by the Hawthorne River; I'm guessing this is a fictional place located in England given the references to Tesco and pounds. I loved Tegan's dark sense of humour and the major flirting and innuendos going on between her and Ethan. Tegan's down-to-earth nature and normality reeled me in straight away, and I sped through the novel. She's quite self-deprecating and unaware of what a cool woman she is. She's also brazen in her own way, like how she slyly nabs the job at the occult shop, Indigo.Read more ›
This book gripped me from start to finish and definitely left me wanting more. There are so many characters in this book that you feel for and some that you take an instant dislike to - which is not always an easy thing to accomplish for an author.
The pace of this book is continuous but with a build up to a big finale. The writing is excellent as already mentioned and the characters are well developed.
Definitely recommended to anyone who enjoys the Paranormal genre.
Ethan; like the other vampires Tegan meets, finds her fascinating. She may be human; however there is something irresistible about her. Tegan is also made aware of magic users when she applies for a job. Wizards are insisting that she has a powerful spell cast over her; yet is this a spell of protection or something to fear?
I enjoyed this book thoroughly. Tegan is a feisty character despite the circumstances she has faced and the new challenges ahead. It's clear from the start of this book that Tegan is something special (I was starting to think she may be a Sookie Stackhouse replica) but she is somewhat different. Although Tegan seems unaware of what she is; plus the magical creatures around her also remain in the dark, I couldn't understand her sudden knowledge of what makes her special and why she should stay away from anything magical or supernatural. Tegan certainly gives no indication as to knowing what she is but suddenly she is explaining to people she has got close to why she is different and why no-one must know. I don't know if I missed a vital scene, but Tegan's knowledge came completely out of the blue and made no sense considering her earlier actions.
This book features Vampires, Dhamphirs, Slayers, Warlocks and Witches. There are some great characters. I loved Rita the wannabe Witch!
Tegan is a great character. The story is told in first person by Tegan. The hero of the book is a handsome Vampire called Ethan. A lot happens in this book, other reviewers have given a good outline of the plot.
One thing I was puzzled over was where Tribane actually was! There is talk of Tesco and Pounds but when you get to the end of this book there is a preview of book 2 and Tegan is living in Manchester and says she flew halfway across the world to get there?!
I would have preferred more romance between Tegan and Ethan but maybe that happens in the second book. However, I did enjoy the end scene between them both.
I was taken out of my comfort zone with this style of book, but L H Cosway sucked me in with her brilliant writing style. I look forward to downloading book 2 and the release of book 3 later this year.
