Once in a decade or two an author enlightens their readers and takes them on an astonishing journey that alters the course in character writing or story line as did author Anne Rice in the book "Interview with a Vampire" in 1979. Decades later Stephenie Meyer author of the "Twilight" started yet another blitz of Vampire authors, sending them all back to their keyboards. Now Sharon Ricklin Jones has accomplished yet a further in depth examination of characters and story. Everything about a character in a story that we once thought typical for that character in any related story at most remained concrete until this author once again alters the course of Vampire folklore. Sharon will surely entice all seasoned and new writers to go back to their scripts for a rewrite.
The moment of a vampire bite and transition will never be written the same. The title could have been Fifty Shades of Red as it had me turning pages frantically and wanting to be turned myself. Here is a vampire story from an author who is member of Romance Writers of America but here and now... a romance vampire story with a twist!
In a few words that come to mind about this story: romance, love, trust, vengeance, power, mystical, graphical, legends.
