Brinwood and First Love (Vampirica Book 1)

This time another two freebies, but appart from being at the time free they are as different as night and day. Brinwood is a rather brutal short story of a cult taking over a town in America. It feels post-apocaliptic in it's kill or be killed dark mood. Vampirica however is firmly in YA territory with a sweet and innocent romantic story line. Brinwood I gave 5 stars, mainly because I loved the ending. First Love (Vampirica Book 1) I gave 4 stars. It was well written, but frankly this genre has been done to death and it didn't surprise or blew me away.
Just click on the pictures to take you to Amazon;)



Brinwood by R.K.Gold
When Casper hears of his brother’s death, he is determined to return to Brinwood to save his mother and sister. He was banned from Brinwood by a religious cult that has taken over this town, and he knows his return will put him in mortal danger.
This is a great post- apocalyptic novella. It is only 77 pages but as I picked this up on a free download I didn’t mind it being short, it has everything it needs; a beginning, a cracking ending and plenty of action in the middle. It was well written and the writer managed to draw a convincing universe and some believable characters I cared for. Recommended.
 



First Love (Vampirica Book 1) by Aria Sparke
A young girl and her mother move to the town of Wicklow after her father’s death.  As she struggles with High school, her rapidly falling to bits mother and her own sadness, she finds that running is the only thing keeping her sane. One night whilst out for a run, she thinks she sees a woman being assaulted.  A very attractive boy; Flynn, comes to her aid and convinces her otherwise. Slowly Lily will discover that nothing seems as it appears in gloomy and rainy Wicklow and that she is surrounded by dangerous creatures that don’t like the light.
This is an entertaining paranormal young adult read. It will appeal to the fans of the twilight series and YA paranormal romance. It is a well written, exciting story that kept me entertained from start to finish. It is another different take on the vampire genre and a good introduction to the series.
