    Paranormal Romance

    Sitting before her computer typing by candlelight one night an author thinks of her next vampire hero only to have him materialize from the darkness. A skeptic and unbeliever at first she is soon writing Corgan’s biography as he passes it on to her. Corgan fears for Marissa having seen a future for her he could not abide and hopes that by being nearby fate can be thwarted. Romance between Corgan and Marissa is a given but how the two will change her dire future requires a few wizard’s, Corgan’s vampire maker and a whole lot of planning, strength and cunning. I believe this is a story that will appeal to Young and New Adult readers who like books filled with fantasy, romance and action. I felt that there could have been a bit more description of some scenes but that all in all the story was well written and plotted and would like to thank the author for the ARC she provided. This is my honest review.

    Good for YA and Teens

    So, ‘A Vampire’s Tale’ the description alone in the beginning set an alarm ringing in my head, those who remember ‘Interview with the Vampire’ a bicentennial vampire who was eager to tell his past to a biographer. Corgan Halton also an ancient vampire wants his story to be told by Marisa Clements who is a struggling writer. Corgan can see the future and fears for Marisa life who he has grown to care for. Something else reminds me of another story of like Marisa, she is able to shut Corgan out of her head which no one else had the ability to do before. I heard of something like this before, I got my finger on it but will not push. I personally know the struggles of not wanting to give to much away but also tell the reader just enough so they will be interested but it doesn't always come out, per-say how we may wanted it to. So it took a lot of thought before reading the book and let me say, the description was entirely accurate but at the same time was not. It was though in its self an original story you will see in there as you read. Though description I feel discourages a reader from taking a chance if you are familiar with the classics and the new vampire story's. You will see a familiar rendering, but this reader took a chance.... Other than that it’s a action story with just enough romance that’s also filled with inventive imagination writing filled with fulfillment of mysterious events. Maya Tyler vampire book has at least ventured away from stupid original blood sucking sex and kept it a little humor. That I can enjoy a fresher perspective on are favorite supernatural creatures of the night. But this is sadly for me where it ends and starts to become another cliche and all to familiar sounding writers choice, Corgan swore to protect Marissa from harm, from the other evil vampires, another all to familiar plot choice. Anyway, it’s not that long to get through but besides the familiarities and if you can get your mind past it, its a easy read. It’s just not the book for me. I like to read something with fresh ideas, and it showed that it had potential but what ruins it for me is the time and again, age old story not told or spun much different. Like re-reading the same book(s) but different author for umpteenth time. For those who aren’t bothered reading with that in mind, see what Corgan past was like and where his future will take you. If you are fan of Twilight by Stephanie Meyer or The House of Night by P.C Cast and Kristin Cast you may enjoy Vampire's Tales. It's a chance I recommend if your fan of these series or anything similar as I mentioned above.

    A Vampire's Tale

    A Vampire's Tale initially reminded me of An Interview with a Vampire as the premise was similar - an old vampire with a story to tell, a young writer chosen and spoken to exclusively. However, as the story starts it is plain to see that this is a completely different story. Corgan wants to tell his story so that he can 'face the sun'. He's lived a long time and has had enough. Marisa is only 23-years-old and is scraping by on her living as a fiction writer. These two come together, but love and war make an appearance too, and Corgan hasn't been telling Marisa the whole truth. This book was well written, although I found it to be a bit disjointed at times. There are quite a few scenes where Marisa is monologuing, or describing her dreams, some of which seemed to have no bearing upon the story except to emphasise that she had strange dreams! It moves with a swift pace, and situations are sometimes upon you before you realise it. It is a different take on the vampire/virgin story, so I would recommend it for anyone wanting something that differs from the norm. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
