Review: Blood Drunk, Faded Blue by Angela Lovell
Blood Drunk, Faded Blue is the first book in the Blood Drunk series by Angela Lovell from CreateSpace.
With summer waning quickly before the start of his senior year, a family emergency forces Blue Knightly to leave his small Midwest town and travel to New York City to locate his rebellious sister.
From the morgue to Central Park to the underbelly of New York, he quickly discovers the big city is the least of his concerns as he reluctantly takes sides within a warring faction of vampires to unravel the mystery of his sister’s disappearance.
In their underground world of abandoned subway tunnels, Blue finds himself falling for a femme fatale vampire whose vibe is seldom clear. Not knowing who to trust, Blue finds himself battling not only the undead, but his own heart, as the family crisis escalates and every decision could be his last.
Blue Knightly has shouldered the burden of being the ‘man of the house’ since his father’s unexpected death. But things have not been going well lately - his mother is sick and his sister is missing.
When Blue is called to New York to identify the body of a Jane Doe - he is fearful that he has finally found his sister. That fear goes unrealized - only to be replaced by a new one.
Now Blue and his sister are caught up in an age old drama that not only involves warring vampires - but their own ancestors as well.
Blood Drunk, Faded Blue is the first book I have read by Angela Lovell and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I was completely caught off guard by the ending of this book and can’t wait to read more.
I give Blood Drunk, Faded Blue 4 out of 5 stars.
