They killed my sister and infected me.
Now I have to pick up the pieces before I die.

I’ve spent the last five months trying to find the bastard who did this. Yet, even with the help of a hot amnesiac vampire named Jude, I’ve had zero luck.

Until now. And it could change everything. Even though I grew up in a family that hunted the supernatural, there were still things I didn’t believe in.

Now I have to hurry for the slim chance that I could save us all. Because when you fight against immortal vampires, you’re the one who’s running out of time.

~My Thoughts~

Note to self: never start a new book near my hubby when he's playing a really loud video game. Because of this I couldn't truly get into it and why I felt certain emotions towards it.

It was interesting from the very beginning but I just couldn't connect to any of the characters, which lead me to not really care about them. I couldn't fall into this world, actually every time I picked it up to read it would take a few chapters for me to get into it. But because I just wasn't really feeling this book I would literally try to avoid it. Pick up other reads or just do chores. 

Now, it wasn't the writing or the story that made me feel this way. It's got action, drama, and even a little bit of romance. This was all me, my doing.

Yeah, I did think about stopping, DNFing it but I thought it would get better. I mean, eventually I'll get into it, right? And like I said before, I eventually would after four or so chapters. Sigh, learned my lesson to never start a new book when hubby is playing his video games. And because I wasn't into it this read felt numbing to me, I could easily get distracted, and I felt like this would never end. Sadly, I read this book during a small reading slump. Most of the recent books I've been reading have only been 3 star books so it's got me down, scared the next book I pick up will be another 3 star rating. If I picked this book up another time, then I'm sure I would have enjoyed this. But it's too late now. 

Overall I did enjoy some parts, especially the last few chapters when we learn a little bit more about the very first vampire (in their generation). Will I read the next book, maybe. I just need to get out of this slump before I start it when it comes out.
