THE DESCENDANT A Vampire Tale of Biblical Proportions


Excerpt

I knew I wasn’t dying. At least that was what the other doctors had said. But what I didn’t know, and neither did any of those other doctors, was the cause of my symptoms. In fact, those supposed specialists had all declared me to be perfectly healthy and viewed my symptoms with skepticism. But I knew they were mistaken; there was something wrong with me.'


I received this book to give an honest review.

I have never heard of this author, so when I reviewed the book after reading the blurb I was like okay new author lets see how good of a story teller she is. 
Let me say she BLEW me away!
I have to say I was sucked into this book from the very beginning! And the twist that was thrown in there was AWESOME! 
This is not some teenager who is a vampire no. This is a grown woman who has a very wonderful life that I would say most of us would love to have. She has a very loving and caring husband, has a job that pays her very well, toys that keep her and her husband busy. But then Allison's life is thrown upside down.
Things are happening in Allison's life that there is no explanation for or at least no one mortal can explain. Then the unthinkable happens to her and her husband, after a night out she is in a car wreck and remembers nothing. 
Now she has a new life and a new love, she now finds out what is wrong with her and why she is so "special". 
Now there is biblical references in this book, which I thought was woven in perfectly! The biblical references along with vampires, a twist that you are going oh wow! Made for a perfect vampire story. 
The ending was really amazing, as I can see there may be a book two hopefully soon. I can see myself reading more from this author in the future, as she is great at telling a story.




Book synopsis: 
The Search (Book 2 in The Descendant Vampire Series)
Allison Carmichael is thirsty for blood and hungry for answers.
Lured away from her illicit extracurricular activities by news about her kidnapped husband, Allison rejoins her adopted family that’s promised to help her find him. Allison's search is detoured, however, by sinister vampire politics, the seeming good will of her fanged family, and the return of her nemesis. Circumstances unfold that shatter the foundation of her world.
In order to successfully play the game she has been thrust into, Allison must battle loss and betrayal and accept unexpected love.
THE SEARCH is on for answers, but when answers are found, will they be what Allison was looking for?

Excerpt

“I’ve already told you once and I’m going to tell you again – no. Now please get off the property before I call the police.”
Gabriela tried closing the door again but my foot didn’t budge. I stared directly into her eyes. “You will let me into this house,” I commanded, but Gabriela’s eyes didn’t react to my persuasion. I was confused as to what was going on; this had worked on every human I had tried it on. “You will let me in this house.”
“No…I…won’t.”
I tilted my head in disbelief and Gabriela mockingly tilted her head back at me. I removed my foot from the doorway but had no intention of letting her shut me out. I was going to let her think for the slightest of moments that she had won this argument. I turned to walk away when I heard, “Ali-gator.”
I turned around and as Gabriela was shutting the door asked, “What did you just say?”
Gabriela rattled off something in Spanish before saying, “I didn’t say anything.”
“Yes you did. You whispered ‘Ali-gator.’”
“Um, no I didn’t.” “My husband used to call me that.”
“Okay lady, you’re losing your mind.” She twirled her finger next to her temple as she whistled cuckoo.
If I could have breathed fire I would have in that moment. I charged Gabriela but before I could reach her I felt like I had hit a brick wall. I placed my hands out in front of me but they couldn’t cross the threshold. Gabriela’s smirk irritated me.
“I told you I wouldn’t let you enter,” she taunted and slammed the door.

I received this book to give an honest review. 
AHHHH how do you write a review without giving anything away! It is so hard to do especially with this story. This is one book you have to read.
Man I thought I truly liked book one but in this one wow! You are swept away with this one. You leave off right where book 1 stopped. Allison has been on a spree trying to find answers to her husband's whereabouts but is she truly finding out anything?
When Allison "adopted" family tells her that they may know where Matt is, Allison is all for trying to find where he is, she wants to see the love of her life again. But at what cost? 
Vincent doesn't play too big a part within this book being as he comes and goes throughout the story, and of course he still loves Allison even though we all know she doesn't love him. 
I found myself on the seat of my chair wondering towards the end is the bad guys going to accomplish what they have set out to do? Or will Allison and the new characters stop them?
You get to meet new characters and lets just say there is a revelation that I really did not see coming and I loved that. This author has a way to keep you engaged in the story and wanting more of what is to come next. You get more of a depth within this story line with the new characters. They play a bigger role than you would have ever thought before which is great. Now I for sure can not wait to read book 3.
