Without opening this book my first thoughts were, oh great, another new author, a very young one at that and in the urban fantasy genre. Two things I personally don’t normally look for or like. As I have said, I love all books but I am fickle and very loyal. I love the authors that I read and in the genre that I like. I am not normally a fan of urban fantasy as I have had a few bad reads (some very disturbing) and new authors are always a hit and miss, never mind one that could be my daughter.
With that in mind I settled in at my doctor’s appointment with this little gem and to my surprise, by the time they called my name, I was almost done this novella. It was that well written and that interesting. Well-done Miss Elisabeth!
This is a very cute story about a Vampire princess, Haddassah Chadwick, who is trying to help her brother Damian, save his human girlfriend, Madelyn, from being killed by their family because she is human. It is apparently a no-no to for these fanged creatures to fall in love with the human race and Haddie is all knowing in this department, as her Uncle Devon had already punished her for doing just that. Now it was up to Haddie to stop it from happening again to her brother.
Sadly, this was so well written I was done in hours and felt a little ripped off. What happens next? There are so many unanswered questions, will there be more? Will we get to know this Haddie girl better and find out what really happened to her when Uncle Devon punished her years before? Yes, you could say I want to see more. There are so many ways this book could go, and I for one would like to see how this young author has things planned out.
For now I wait, and hope that one-day I will get to see more of Miss Elisabeth. Am I a hypocrite for thinking what I did at first? Why yes, I believe so, but this author has proved to me that I should never judge a book or it’s author by it’s shortness, genre or age. Well played!
