Blood Memories by Barb Hendee
ROR Spring Challenge
Eleisha Clevon has the face of a teen angel, but she is no angel. Unlike most vampires, she doesn’t like to kill, but self-preservation comes first. When an old friend destroys himself by walking into sunlight right in front of her, Eleisha is shocked. And what she finds afterwards points to how very sick of his existence her friend had become—piling drained corpses in the basement and keeping records of other vampires’ real names and addresses. That’s a problem. Because now, there are policemen on the case: two very special humans with some gifts of their own. They know who Eleisha is, and, even more dangerous, what she is.
An interesting Urban Fantasy/Vampire Novel-about average, started out fairly slow but got better later in the book. My only pet peeve is upon getting to the end, it's one of these books that's an obvious "getting to know characters who will be in subsequent novels in a series" more than an actual story with a beginning, middle and most importantly, end. It was definately not a stand alone book, as the characters get a big upheaval in their way of life near the end of the book.
I'll try book two, Hunting Memories (after all, isn't that what I was just forced to buy to learn anything that happens to these characters?) but that does irk me. 3.5 stars.
