[ARC Review] - Descended By Blood + Giveaway

Title: Descended by Blood  
Author: Angeline Kace
Series: Vampire Born Trilogy
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: August 26, 2011

I received this book for review from the author.

Summary:  Brooke Keller is a high school junior who has never spent much time living in one place. She is finally in a town long enough to almost snag the boy of her dreams, until her life is threatened after killing a fanged man in his attempt to kidnap her.

Brooke begins a dangerous journey in an effort to find out who is after her and how to stop them. Thrown into a world with powerful and prejudiced vampires, Brooke must tap into the side of her that she never knew existed at the risk of losing her life in order to save it.

Thoughts: Brooke hasn't had an easy life.  Her mom seems to always be moving her around. They have been in small town Virginia for two years and things seem to be going smoothly. She has a great BFF and just snagged the cutest guy in school. Brooke thinks nothing could be more perfect.  But when she learns that she is in danger and about her true heritage, everything is thrown up in the air.

I haven't been accepting a lot of self-published books lately. But this cover really caught my eye and I ended up really loving it and the characters. I was instantly sucked into the budding relationship between Jaren and Brooke. Of course as they do things take a turn of the paranormal variety.  I definitely loved that we don't get the paranormal twist until about nine chapters in.  The suspense was wonderful.  Descended by Blood was an engaging read, with romance and danger that will have your heart pumping. 

Descended By Blood comes out on August 26th and will be available in paperback and ebook formats.

Score: 4 Stars
