Senior Year Bites by JA Campbell
Thanks to an innocent game of Truth or Dare, I wound up sleeping in a graveyard. Probably not the brightest thing I’ve ever done, but thanks to a couple of well-placed fangs, I’m here to tell the tale.
Vampires might stalk pop culture, but they’re just myths, right? Yeah. Not so much…
Everything seems a lot more difficult when you’re a nocturnal creature of the night, especially school. I was managing, but couldn’t keep it hidden from my friends. Steph decided that we should be cool, like superheroes, and fight crime.
I’m a vampire, not a hero. Living in a sleepy New England town, crime is a little harder to come by. At least it is until a serial killer moves into the area. He’s got the authorities stumped, but then again, the cops don’t have a teenage, blood-sucking, non-hero on their team. It doesn’t take long for me to discover the world is full of monsters. I may be one of them…but will I turn out to be the hero, or the killer everyone is looking for.[bctt tweet=”A Wild ride from first line to the last! #review #amreading @UntoldPress” username=”OurWriteSide”]

My rating: 5 stars!
Oooo! This is one book I won’t soon forget! The writing is flawless, engaging, and held me at the end of my seat page after page.
From the moment Meg awakes to the last period, JA Campbell took me on an adventure. Meg was a normal teen who is attacked when she answers a dare to sleep in the graveyard. What follows is an amazing journey as she grows into and learns her powers with a very unexpected tutor. I really enjoy vampires, and this particular novel wins the world for me simply because it doesn’t follow the regular cliches, and the humorous details of discovering if the books and movies are right is a delightful treat.
JA Campbell also gets high marks for combining otherworldly characters into this vampire tale. This is the true magic of the book for me as I am a huge fan of all things Celtic, most of all the fae.
This is just the first book in a series, but I know I will be waiting with bated breath for the next one. I will not soon forget any of the characters from this story.[bctt tweet=”This particular #novel wins the world. #amreading #review @untoldpress #ourwriteside” username=”OurWriteSide”]
