My Blood Runs Blue, Stacy Eaton


My Blood Runs Blue, Stacy Eaton
Genre: Paranormal/fantasy Romance
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
When I started reading this it felt familiar, and on checking I discovered I’d read it when it first came out. That’s a couple of years back, and I’ve read a couple of thousand books since then so I couldn’t remember all the story.
Its got some great characters, and an interesting storyline, along with a slightly different take on how vampires are created ( well the females anyway – I’m not sure if that applies to males too). I liked Kristin, independent and loyal, she loves her job and has a solid place in the small town where she works as a cop. Julian and Alexander were the two main vampires we meet, and had both known Kristin in a previous life. To them she’s the same person, she thinks they’re nuts though when they talk about vampires, but it seems she can’t keep her hands – or lips or other body parts – off either of them whenever opportunity arises!! She wonders what on earth is going on, and while she’s still trying to work it all out her life gets put in terrible danger.
Its a fun read, quite simplistic in plot and I can see openings for the next novel in the series. I enjoyed this book, as I did on first reading, but it’s not one for my keeper files, a one off read for me. I didn’t really get “into” the story, where I like to feel I’m there with the characters. I didn’t really get a proper sense of danger or of mystery about the human/vampire conundrum. It felt quite a superficial surface based read, but if you’re looking for one that’s complete in itself, and part of an on-going series that’s easy to read, and won’t take too much working out what’s going on this is perfect. I prefer a bit more depth and drama but not everyone does of course. I’m in two minds whether to continue with the series, part of me wants to see how the story develops but at the moment I’ve quite a long TBR list…( does it ever get shorter though for us real book lovers??)
Stars: Four, a fun light hearted read.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
