Review: The Vampires' Last Lover
The Vampires' Last Lover by Aiden James
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I’m not exactly sure what I was expecting from this book based on the title and cover, but I was definitely surprised at how the story progressed.
Txema (yes, a really hard to get used to type of name) is a college student who is doing the usual college type things until one night when a quirky vampire shows up and takes her blood. Upon waking, she also does the typical thing, and assumes it was all a weird dream until two quirky vampires show up. Txema has been lucky enough to be deemed someone special by the vampire race. She has a vampire’s bite birthmark that indicates she is one of the few women in existence who can make vampires less yucky monster-y and more sexy sparkly. Throw in some murders of people who closely resemble her and you’ve got a very stressed out college girl.
Oh, and the story wouldn’t be complete without a love triangle or two, just to keep the romance elements alive. Overall, this story was a spin on your usual vampire tale but I kind of had some trouble with the POV and writing style in the beginning. I eventually got used to it, but it certainly slowed down my read. There was a lot of setup in this book that I assume gets more fleshed out in books to come. This was certainly an interesting start to a series.
