The Vow

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

Summary:  The Vow

Finals are over, and twenty-year old Claire Matthews can hardly wait to begin summer break until… she arrives home to an army of police swarming her parents’ front lawn. Detective Reynolds delivers the dreadful news that the man and woman inside the home are dead, and Claire is forced to identify their mummified bloodless bodies.  Her world comes to a grinding halt when she learns that it is her mother and father who are the deceased, and her younger brother, JJ, is nowhere to be found. The predator accused…a vampire.

Claire is no stranger to vampires; in fact, these days’ vamps are a dime a dozen. One-hundred- thirty years ago a vow was made, combining the two worlds.  A vampire’s survival no longer required a human sacrifice. Vampire Centers were created, offering human blood through transfusion; yet, why were her parents bled dry? What changed? Could a rogue vampire be responsible? Was it possible vampires, Nate and Parker, JJ’s best friends, suddenly hungered for human blood?


This book catches you from the very first page; you’re intrigued to find out who the killer is, in this thrilling murder mystery.   I loved the new take on vampires, whom live in harmony with humans all because of a vow that was made over a century ago.  

When I read a book, I expect the editing to be done properly and thoroughly. As someone who dreams of being a writer, I look for the grammatical errors, which tell me if the publisher truly cares about the quality of books they are putting out on the market place. This book has many grammatical errors, which take away from the flow of the over-all book as well as the enjoyment level.

The over-all development of the plot and characters is well done.  You feel each of the emotions as well as being able to connect with the characters.

Is this book priced correctly? The e-book is right in line where I’d like to buy books, but the paperback is at the top end and if you’re a budget buyer it might be a little high.
