My review of A Blood Seduction by Pamela Palmer
Take me down to Vampire City…
Vampires live only for lust and pleasure in the eternal twilight of Vamp City. But the city’s magic is dying. The only person who can restore it? A beautiful woman from the mortal world…one who knows nothing of the power she wields.
Quinn Lennox is searching for a missing friend when she stumbles into a dark otherworld that only she can see—and finds herself at the mercy of Arturo Mazza, a dangerously handsome vampire whose wicked kiss will save her, enslave her, bewitch her, and betray her. What Arturo can’t do is forget about her—any more than Quinn can control her own feelings for him. Neither one can let desire get in the way of their mission—his to save his people, hers to save herself. But there is no escape from desire in a city built for seduction, where passion flows hot and blood-red.
Welcome to Vamp City…
I liked the book. It was fast paced and the concept was intriguing. Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance/erotica aren’t really my type of genre’s. The sex involved (and there was a lot compared to what I normally read) actually fit into the story fairly well, so it wasn’t a hindrance to the story and didn’t make me wonder why the heck they were suddenly all horny and stroking each other.
Quinn was the only well fleshed out character, though I liked Arturo and think he’s much deeper than what was presented. Arturo was also the only other character remotely built up. All the other characters were just sort of placeholders with no real background. The storyline of Quinn’s brother, Zack, I felt could have been left out completely. What we saw from his point of view (only about 2-3 pages for every 50 presented) with how sadistic the vampire guards were could have just as easily been shown in Quinn’s dealings with the vampires. I thought the world building was done pretty well and am looking forward to reading the next in the series. Hopefully it will also be a nice quick read.
The eBook was presented well with no obvious errors
