I'm no coward. I want to make that perfectly clear. But after my life turned into a horror movie, I take fear a lot more seriously now. I finally became Dr. Carrie Ames just eight months ago. Then I was attacked in the hospital morgue by a vampire. Just my luck.

So now I'm a vampire, and it turns out I have a blood tie to the monster who sired me. The tie works like an invisible leash and I'm bound to him no matter what I do. And of course he's one of the most evil vampires on earth. With my sire hell-bent on turning me into a soulless killer and his sworn enemy set to exterminate me, things couldn't get much worse--except I'm attracted to them both.

Drinking blood, living as an immortal demon and being a pawn between two warring vampire factions isn't exactly how I'd imagined my future. But as my father used to say, the only way to conquer fear is to face it. So that's what I'll do. Fangs bared.

Why did I add The Turning to my bookshelf?

I added this book to my Kindle account almost 11 years ago. For some reason, I haven’t picked it up yet even though I still think that it sounds really good. I still enjoy vampire romances from time to time and this book is the start of a short series of books. I do hope to work it into my reading schedule at some point.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it?

  1. Wow. That author’s name is very close to JLA’s. Coincidence? My daughter is on a vampire binge. When people say they are back, she says they never left.

  2. I’ve seen her books around and was curious. I’ll look forward to seeing what you think when you get the chance at it.

  3. I actually haven’t read this one but it does sound very interesting though. I am intrigued to see what you will end up thinking of it. Hope you enjoy picking it up.
