My mom emailed me the other day, with a detailed review of a book she’d been reading. Unfortunately, it wasn’t her cup of tea, but oddly enough, she put a lot of effort into telling me about it.
So here it is, my mom’s first book review. Hopefully there will be more to come from her, maybe about books she DOES like (*hint hint*)
BTW – my mom’s a BIG fan of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series, and of course, Terrible and The Downside Ghosts. She has decided to start the Fever series next. I’m anxious to get her reactions! I just know she’ll LOVE it!
Already Dead: A Novel
Hi Sweetpea! What is the title of the book you wanted me to read? I finished the other one…Already Dead. If it’s free and there’s nothing else to read… why not… but otherwise…
It’s the story of a guy (Joe Pitt) who became a “vampyre” due to a vyrus that he was given through another person who had the vyrus (that is really how they spell Vampyre and Vyrus in the book ’cause of it’s functionality). This vyrus causes them to have to feed on human blood on a regular basis, otherwise the vyrus starts devouring them from the inside. They also become allergic to the sun the way vampires do, but they eat and drink like normal people, and this vyrus cleans their blood of any disease whatsoever, and heals them quickly when they get wounded.
When he was infected he should have died but another vampyre rescued him and pulled him through. Terry, the man who saved Joe Pitt, started to organize the vampyres in his part of the district and they became the “Society”. They gave Joe some odd jobs to do to try and keep the newly affected vampyres under control so they don’t turn rogue. Another guy “Predo” is the head of the “Coalition” in another part of town and they also give Joe Pitt (his real before the vyrus name is Simon – but he changed his name after being infected) some odd jobs to do for them to keep the order.
While investigating some mysterious deaths, he discovers that there is someone infecting people with another kind of virus which turns them into zombies for a few days. The newly turned zombies feed on human brains so they kill randomly to feed themselves, but they only live a very short time ’cause that kind of virus eats them from the inside and eventually they just cease to exist.
Joe Pitt is hired to find a young girl who ran away from home. The parents are very rich and were sent to him through Predo, the father being a pedophile doctor and the mother being a lush and a tramp. So Joe is hired to find this girl and while doing so he gets beaten a few times and almost killed a few more times….
SIDENOTE: My mom goes into a quick summary of the “end” result of his multiple investigations and a little “love story” part that left her somewhat indifferent… so I’ll leave those spoilers out…
So, in case you’re interested in putting a footnote somewhere about this book… not worth your time!
So there it is folks. Surprisingly enough, once I checked this out on Amazon, it appears it has a ton of good reviews, but and then,there are also quite a few like my mom’s, so who knows? Maybe you’ll like it? Let us know
