The new vampire-thrilled, Zara's Curse, is gaining some serious steam in the genre. |
Written by a basically unheard of Author, Andrew Domonkos, the book is a wonderful example of vampire books done right.
The book follows Zara Lane, who has just turned 21. Zara and her "friend" Abby Winters are going out for their usual birthday celebration. This year they decide to hit the hot new club simply called the Church: a former church that has been converted into a Goth-themed bar in downtown Denver. Abby is rather an annoying character, but Zara is highly likable. She is quick-witted and doesn't mope around like the usual Bella-clones that dominate these types of books.
When the two girls meet two handsome but very different young men at the bar, it sets off a series of events that throws Zara into a mysterious world of vampires and psychopaths.
The two guys: Drake and Micah, are different in every way. Drake is obnoxious (like Abby) and acts like the usual macho jerks Zara can't stand, while Micah is quiet, sensitive, and charming in every way.
As Zara falls deeper in love with her new crush, her hipster friend Twig--equipped with ironic mustache and everything--becomes agitated and suspicious of the new union, and threatens to thwart it, which only annoys Zara further.
When Twig and Zara attend Micah's family's party, Zara has no idea that Twig is hiding much more than he is admitting to.
Zara's Curse is the first book in the exciting new Empire of Fangs series. What really appealed to me about the novelette (117 pages) is that it never bores, and is always introducing you to some new twist or turn. It is funny when it wants to be, and often dramatic, with some intense fight scenes.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves the genre of vampire fiction or paranormal romance. It kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting more.
I think this series might give Twilight a run for its money. Or at least make a few ripples.
