A unique and twisted tale of a vampire mother, who has children to protect. Just looking at the cover, Jenny appears locked and loaded. I wouldn’t want to take her on, would you?
Click on the cover to pick up your copy of Human No Longer, by Kathryn Meyer Griffith.
Jenny was a wife, a mother and a writer. She had put her writing on hold while she helped her husband start his business. Once they could afford a secretary, she went back to her writing. One of the books was about a gang of vampires whose home base was a renovated theater.
Now she was a part of the story.
She had to learn to live with her handicap, otherwise she would be sucking the blood from her own loved ones.
She was so soft-hearted she found it difficult to kill an animal. She had to eat and it was better than the alternative.
How was she supposed to survive and keep her secret?
5 STARS – Would Buy It For Them (lol)
I am so ticked off. I misplaced my notes and had all this great stuff I was going to tell you. I will do my best to remember, lol, all the things I wanted to say.
This was a unique twist on a familiar tale. A mother vampire can be vicious as she struggles to protect her family, not just from others, but from herself. I loved it.
Kathryn Meyer Griffith’s writing flows so smoothly I was carried through the pages and felt as if I was walking in Jenny’s shoes, not wanting to put the book down. The plot was so unique, I wasn’t sure how Kathryn was going to tell the tale. It’s nice to know not all vampires are so cold and blood thirty that they cannot control themselves, ripping, tearing, killing and slaughtering with no thought or remorse.
My heart went out to Jenny as she struggled to adjust and make ends meet. She still missed her husband, who had died in the attack that made her who she is now. Now she was alone AND a vampire. Would she be able to have a normal life, or as normal as it could be seeing she’s a vampire? Would she survive, seeing someone was out there with a plan that didn’t coincide with her own?
The characters drew me into their lives. At times I forgot Jenny was a vampire. Her flawed brother made me want to wrap my arms around him and tell him it will be all right. Joey was steadfast, loyal and in love with her. Would they have a future together?
I can see now that there could be another book. Is there going to be one? I would love to find out how Jenny fares in the future.
I received this book in return for a fair and unbiased review.
