05/11/2012 Fantastic Friday!

Welcome back everyone, I hope your week has seen you well. Mine has been interesting, and I'm hoping for another relaxing day. Right now though, let's get right to business shall we?

Today I bring you 'Dark Heirloom' by J.D. Brown, it's the story if a young woman in her early twenties trying to figure out why and how she became a vampire. She isn't a member of the undead, and she was never bitten, but she is most definitely a vampire and doesn't know why. She's already had someone try to kill her, saying she should lead them to her nest, but she doesn't know what they're talking about. Not even her mother will give her answers, so it's up to Ema to figure things out for herself, and of course try not to be killed along the way.

This story is done in the first-person perspective, which is a narrative style I both like, and also fail at completely when trying to do it myself. So, whenever someone manages to actually handle it appropriately I do enjoy it. Now, I've said this also before I'm not the biggest fan of Vampires, but when someone takes them and does something interesting with them; like in this case it's a girl who's mysteriously a vampire. It's different, it's interesting, it has nothing to do with sparkles. (I'll probably catch hell for that, but that's fine.)

'Dark Heirloom' is available on Smashwords for $5.95, a bit pricey, but a good story. I believe the price is partially because it's published by a company, and they set the prices, not the author. I still recommend checking it out though!

Thanks everyone for coming by this week again. I look forward to seeing everyone back next week as well. Also remember 'The Light Rises' is still $1 when you use coupon code AW99C at Smashwords, so check that out as well! Have a good day!
