Solstice by Bryan W. Dull

Look for the author interview with Bryan W. Dull under the tab Author Interview at the top.
 



SolsticeIn Gavin Moxley's world, there is no thin line between right and wrong. In a personal crusade to help sever a line of disease carried by a clan of vampires; Gavin has no choice to be ruthless. The Vampires are purposely infecting the human population…waiting for humans to actively pass it on to each other. Gavin takes no chances and executes them one by one. Not strong or powerful, finding humans before they turn into full vampires is ideal and Gavin’s best bet.

Yes, this is Gavin’s life…

…And nothing ever changes it until a young half breed vampire with special abilities, Solstice, attaches and makes herself a fixture in his life when she asks for his help and protection and when a reluctant Gavin agrees he joins a dangerous game of cat and mouse. There is no safe place and the pair are constantly watching their backs. Torn between his hate and his love for Solstice Gavin is thrown into a moral dilemma that only he can figure out but two things are clear…

His faith and Humanity are being tested and the past is not always forgotten.

My review:

I received this book to give an honest review.
A very, very different vampire story, and I am glad someone thought outside of the box on this one and made this story different in every way. This is not your average vampire-packed action book this is something more. What do you get when you have half-breed vampires, AIDS, a young woman and a hunter? How does it all come together? Well you would have to read the book to find out, but let me tell you this. It is not your average vampire story!

It did take me a minute to actually get into the story, but once I did I did not want to put it down. The action was amazing, the characters great, the plot different.
I thought it was amazing that the author Bryan Dull started his novel as a screenplay, and with this being his first novel he did a pretty good job.
The opening part was AWESOME, I found myself saying "oh my gosh!" And wondering if this was how the book was going to turn out. But sadly no, it was not as intense as it was in the opening part.
Solstice is one of the main characters who is a half breed. Half-human, half-vampire, with her age she knows a lot and starts growing in way you can not believe.
Another main character and he is the one that starts the book off after the opening is Gavin.
He is a vampire hunter for reason you will find out later on in the book, he meets Solstice and he knows he should not get close to her. But he can not help himself. He has a feeling that he should protect her though she is one of the vampires that he has been hunting.
The way the two characters talked to each other had me laughing, especially when Gavin always had to try to be rude. She would reply with a witty comment. Just like a normal teenager, well not your average normal teenager.
I recommended this book for those who enjoy vampires, action, the paranormal all around. I would say this book is for mature YA on up.
I do hope there is a book two as I want to see what else is going to happen.

My Rating: 5 wine glasses
