This book I read sometime ago

Blurb: Ava Tanner finds herself in a world without satellite technology in a time of GPS, Smart Phones and Tablets. When she discovers that a corporation headed by vampires with a sinister motive is to blame, her world is turned upside-down. After a narrow escape, she learns a mystical secret about herself that could aide her in her fight against the vampires. Unfortunately, the vampires see her either as a valuable asset or a target for destruction.
When the world is on the brink of complete social and technological devastation, one must ask themselves: Would I give up my blood for the modern ideal way of life, or will I wage war with the overlords of chaos?


My Review: I really enjoyed this vampire book. So many of them that you read these days are so pat and tired that I have avoided reading them. Kayla Curry however puts a good spin on it. Taking place mainly in Hawaii she weaves in native lore that I had not encountered before. The vampire world seems much more complex. The fact that the century old vampires have gotten the tech jump on the humans is a good plot. The idea of making them slaves to their blackberries and other electronics is almost believable. Ava seems to be drawn to the immortals which works out great when she turns out to be immortal herself. There is lots of action to keep you on your toes in this book. It does end way to abruptly and the writing is rough at times. I am looking to more installments from MS. Curry and think she will evolve as a writer with each one. I give this book 4 stars.
