#Review: Amplified – Alexia Purdy
Still reeling from the loss of her mother, April Tate makes a decision that will change her life forever. She’s determined in finding answers to the questions she harbors inside, and refuses to settle for the life she’s been living. Deep inside, she knows there’s something more out there. Something that will help explain how the vampires came to be. She just needs to find exactly what she needs to know.
Knowing that her current decisions affect everyone she’s come across, most especially Jeremy, April knows that she can’t let things be. The thought of living in such a chaotic world is mind-boggling, and she refuses to sit still while everything changes around her. She will find the information she seeks, and she will make the necessary changes in her life once she does.
Determined in making sense of the situation, April sets off on a quest to right every wrong in the world. Granted, things don’t work out to her advantage, but she refuses to go down without a fight. What she’s looking for is just on the horizon, and she’ll do everything possible to come out on top. At least, that’s what she wants to believe.
When an unexpected adversary climbs out of the woodwork, April soon realizes there’s more to the situation than she knew. Part of her knows that she shouldn’t trust her instincts. That she should leave well enough alone. Yet the thought of finding a cure some day is the only thing that drives her on. Somehow, some way, she will find exactly what she’s looking for. Only then, will she be able to change the world as she knows it, and make it a better place for herself and those she loves.
Amplified picks up where Disarming leaves off, and does not disappoint. We’re thrown smack-dab in the middle of the chaos that surrounds April and her beloved family. She’s unsure of what she’s doing, and uncertain as to whether she’ll be able to make the world a better place. The girl is definitely full of determination as she strives to make sense of what’s going on around her. I have a feeling that there’s more to come for April and her friends. Truthfully, I can’t wait to see what happens next!
Who wants to be the prey in a world full of hunters?
In the aftermath of the end of her world, April Tate decides that it’s high time to leave the city that never sleeps, Las Vegas. After learning the origins of a Zompire Plague remedy, she risks her life to steal the antidote, makes the decision to separate from Jeremy for a while, and joins a small band of new and old comrades on a trip to the Pacific Coast. There they search out a legendary hive of vampires who are more than just wild, blood drinking creatures, they could be the very people she needs to help her.
On a mission to save the last of humanity, April will use the antidote to save some from eternal damnation, but will her decision bring hope for the future or create an ever bigger, unforeseen devastation?
