100 Pages A Day...Stephanie's Book Reviews

I absolutely love historical fiction and read a lot of it; I love to learn history this way.  I also enjoy reading science fiction, fantasy, horror, thriller and non-fiction science.

The Vampires Next Door

The Vampires Next Door - Elle Klass

Dead Lands for Halloween Bingo!


Allison is the new girl in St. Augustine, she misses her friends in Virginia and hasn't had much luck in her new home except for swooning at the boy across the hall, Rodham. Allison's luck soon changes as noisy and strange neighbors move into the apartment complex; they party all night, aren't seen during the day and their arrival has sparked strange visions and a green glow that Rodham can't seem to resist. Rodham teams up with Allison to figure out just what these neighbors are up to. Together, Allison and Rodham open up a dangerous world that they have been fated to. As Slayers, they are two parts of a team that was created to destroy the Bloodseekers in a deadly game that has gone on for centuries.

A well-crafted, intense paranormal romance with vampires that packs a lot into a short book. Allison was a very easy character to relate to and I enjoyed her coming into her own as she became confident in her relationship with Rodham and discovered her gifts as the Garnet Slayer. I enjoyed learning all of the elaborate details and history of the Witches of darkness and light, Bloodseekers and Slayers. I appreciated the creation story as it gave a purpose to all of the different beings. The constant action and discovery of new magic and beings kept the story quick-paced. With a shorter story, there were a lot of lucky coincidences that brought people together rather quickly; however I was still easily wrapped into the story and can't wait to meet more Slayers.
