Cloudy and cool out there this morning, another dull day. Interesting shelf.
"This was an interesting take on the typical Dracula story, and I loved it. I am not a fan of this genre. The only other vampire tales that I've read was Twilight. And, let me tell you this is nothing like it. I was interested in the premise of a suicidal Dracula." L. Collins
Dracula: Hearts of Stone (Dracula is a good guy)
We start with a shiny new pot of boiling water and add too many evil vampires, and not enough of the good biters. Toss in one suicidal Dracula; add a cup of mayhem and a dash of romance. Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula: Hearts of Stone.
Please check out my author page for excerpts:
Unrealistic or not my writing gives me hope. But with something like 50 000 books published a month it is a little discouraging. I can just picture my book underneath that pile being crushed. I didn’t think there were that many writers out there. Must be a factory out there producing them like peanut butter cookies.
They are first person POV and I normally avoid those but I did like the first two books. I actually read them twice. I don't really watch TV so I never understood other readers complaints that the hero (Bones) was just like Spike(?) from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I thought it was funny and I laughed out loud often. I loved the interaction between Cat and Bones. The chemistry between them was fantastic. The subsequent books, not so much. I have enjoyed the spin off books though.

Hi Stonehawk! I like to read & review books written for both children & adults too. I have to admit that I like children's & YA books the best. You have a greatr selection of books on your shelf. I just love Harry Potter & can't wait until the 2nd half of #7 comes out (the movie)!
