American Vampire had me at “snatch magnet” on the first page. Jennifer Armintrout streams clever turns of phrase and dry humour with characters flawed enough to be real. Sophia and Marjorie steal their scenes, and Becky’s over-the-top trashiness is a delight.

From the cornfields to the high school, Penance is one freaky town, populated with spooky Baptists…and a monster. This romantic creature feature novel has suspense in spades, and though it’s best suited to Halloween, buy it now and read at night. A rollicking good time!

  2. I haven’t heard of this author before but I’m going to have to see if I can get something by her since this sounds so neat!

    • This is actually her 8th published novel, but I think it’s the best 🙂 Though I haven’t read the fae trilogy yet. All 8 books are in mass market in the US, so they should be well priced.

  3. I have not read this series, but I have the Blood Ties series on my to-read shelf. I invite you to check out my book blog at http://www.nightlyreading.wordpress.com
