Review: The Whitcombe Legacy Book One: The Vampire Julian
The Whitcombe Legacy Book One: The Vampire Julian by Ann B. Morris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book managed to do something original and unique with what can be a very tired vampire genre. The setting, the characters, and the larger story all contributed to a book that had me coming back for more. I think there's some more books in the series that I should check out after this one.
Julian is a tired vampire. He's been living his life battling the evil type of vampires and sustaining himself on synthetic blood manufactured by his very own shifter life companion. Julian is holding out hope that the prophecy is real and one day a human woman will love him enough to risk her life for him, ridding him of this curse.
Simone appears to be just that woman when she shows up at Julian's bar looking for a job. She's been trapped in New Orleans since the hurricane and was separated from her sister (who is now missing). Out of money and desperate for a way to continue searching, Simone takes on a job working with Julian. The two of them have a spark almost immediately and it takes off from there. While their romance was pretty much a forgone conclusion, it was interesting to see how they would both try to handle the impending prophecy. While we get a lot of resolution in this book, I would be interested in checking out the rest of the series to see how the rest of the Whitcombe family ends up.
