#Review: Vampire World – Rich Douglas
Waking up with no memory of who or what you are is a lesson Janice is learning well. She finds herself in an orphanage, and is forced to live a lifestyle she knows nothing about. To make matters worse, she discovers that she’s a vampire, and must conform to the new world’s customs. It’s either that, or suffer the consequences.
Telling herself that she can get the hang of things, Janice does her best to fit in. Granted, that’s not easy when you’re living in the midst of other vampires. All that changes when she’s adopted and sent to live with the intriguing Mr. FreeCut. Though she’s not sure as to what she should do, or how she should act, she tells herself that she’ll do everything to co-exist with those around her. Surely, it can’t be that difficult, right?
Immersing herself in her new environment, Janice soon realizes just how hard things can truly be. Things in this world are nothing like what she could have ever imagined them to be. Life is based on looks, money, and how much you can do for others. While that thought is daunting, she knows she needs to get herself together if she’s to survive from day to day. The question is, how can she do when she’s not exactly sure as to whom she can put her trust in from the get-go?
Vampire World is certainly a unique vampire story, though it’s chock full of many cliches. The author immerses us in Janice’s plight as she tries to discover the truth about herself. Life is hard, most especially for a vampire that doesn’t have much to her name. The premise of the book is interesting, though I confess that I had trouble getting into certain parts of the book. I think it’s because of the lack of necessary information in regards to Janice herself. Overall, the book is an intriguing read about a world full of vampires doing their best to co-exist amidst the chaos of their everyday lives.
Available for purchase via the following retailers: Amazon.
A popular teen is bitten by a vampire during a steamy night of making out with her boyfriend. After the bite, she wakes up in a cruel orphanage in Vampire World, with no memory of her past. She’s left with very little; only fangs, pale skin and a keen desire for blood.
Marissa, who’s named Janice in Vampire World, escapes the ghastly orphanage thanks to Mr. John FreeCut, an old, benevolent vampire who adopts Janice because he wants to foster children he could never have. He says her parents died in a crash. Beautiful, innocent and thrust into an enigmatic world she has no memory of, Janice must face many challenges. The grueling blood hostess job. The multiple stalkers and creepers who are hungry for her and her blood. The dizzying fireball competition. And most challenging, the fact that she doesn’t look or act like a vampire.
Janice is emotionally overwhelmed. Thankfully she makes some friends, including Brett BloodCut. Brett and Janice are immersed in a passionate romance, and Brett helps Janice adjust to her new world by giving her the love, confidence and knowledge she needs to survive as a vampire. Janice finds a way to succeed in such a problematic world. Things go well for Janice, though not for long. A stranger knows the truth about her past.
Slowly but surely Janice discovers the truth that she is being lied to by the ones she loves. She must learn the secret behind TriFang, and ultimately accept the stinging reality that things are not always what they seem. Could the truth ever be so bloody?
About The Author:
My new novel, Vampire World, is now available. If you enjoy reading paranormal YA fiction, please check this out now.
The Magical Tale of Eliza Felding, Book 1 of a trilogy, takes place in New Orleans one year after Hurricane Katrina. It involves teens, romance and tons of magic.
The Secret of the Dogs is a children’s book about four very different dogs (a Basenji, a Greyhound, a Pomeranian and an Airdale Terrier) who go on a quest to rescue a young boy that is being abused by his father.
I love writing, teaching, storm chasing, traveling and drinking orange soda.
