I am currently out of books to review from new authors and need some more reading material so the book submissions are now open. How do I submit my book for review, you ask? Click on the link called Review Me and fill out the form. Please, do not use the contact form, as this one is for other inquiries and does not have the specific information needed to make the process run smoothly. I've gotten so many inquiries from authors and publishers using the contact form and they don't even send me a summary or background on the book. Please do not do this.


Thank you,
Josie

Rules

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly book meme that I found on Addicted to Romance, started by MizB of Should Be Reading. Everyone is invited to join the fun! Here are the rules:

• Grab your current read.
• Open to a random page.
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences or quotes from somewhere on that page. (Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others! Share the title and author, too, so that other other participants can add the book to their To Be Read Lists if they like)

My Current Read

"Oh," he said, voice subdued. "You mean it's her."
In a thousand years of existence, Stefan had never been much for slang. He preferred precise speech to Mario's idioms that changed every decade. But Americans of this century had a phrase that he thought summed things up very well. He tossed back the rest of his vodka and slid the glass across the teakwood coffee table.
"Damn straight," he said.
This quote is from the first half of the book by the author Jennifer Ashley called Viva Las Vampires. So far, it is a very interesting read with a lot more sexual tension than I've been diving into...which isn't a bad thing. I'm really enjoying Ashley's writing style, it has made this book an easy read so far.

Summary

Man and monster are in his blood... His name is Jeremiah Fall. A soldier of fortune, he has been fighting his own war for 150 years--ever since the beast in him was born. Desperate to restore his lost humanity, Fall crosses the sands of Egypt, discovers a lost city off the coast of France, and finally arrives at the birthplace of all mankind. Shunning daylight and feeding only when he must, he battles the monster who transformed him forever. He can share his deepest secret with no one . . . not even the beautiful woman he starts to love, the only human who grasps the mysteries of an ebony stone as old as creation itself. Across the world, across time, Fall seeks the stone's secret. But has he found a cure for himself or unleashed a final curse on all mankind?

Review

I really loved Mr. Petrucha's writing style. The only reason the book received a 4.5/5 is because of the lack of romance it spun...but the romance-interest made for an awesome twist. However, Petrucha spins a great page-turning adventure in Blood Prophecy; it was really hard to put down the book. Petrucha puts together historical facts with his rendition of the Christian creation tale and merges it with the vampires' origin. The main character, Jeremiah Fall, an early Puritan for the early settlements in the United States, stumbles upon an old burial mound releasing an age old "beast". After this run in, he's infected by the vampire and travels across the world looking for a cure. The author's writing style is greatly descriptive, has plenty of action to keep the reader captivated, and combines historical information to make the book sound believable and real.
Another thing I really appreciated from this author was the fact that even though Jeremiah tries to stay human, he doesn't become a whinny...well, bitch. He kicks butt and continues on his journey even though he seems to be caught between a rock and a hard place. A whinny hero/heroine is one of my pet peeves and almost an instant deal breaker; I'm glad this didn't happen in this case.

Purely Vampiric Rating: Photobucket

Readers

The end of the semester draws so very near...I can almost see it. The semester ends Dec 9th (WOOOT!), so expect some reviews during my month long break. I also have a post in the workings called "Xmas for the Purely Vampiric"...title's a work in progress. :) It's going to feature some books/movies/shows/etc you might want to put on your wishlist...or get for another vampire lover in your life. I also have a review I will write about Stefan Petrucha's Blood Prophecy. It was such a great read; I highly recommend it. So watch out for those two posts coming soon.

Authors

Since I'll be off for a month startingDec 9th; I'll be getting back to authors as well, but notreopening my book submissions for the time being, I think I might remove the form until I'm caught up. I want to give all the authors a chance at a review if ya'll'd still take me.
Take care,
Josie
