Dead, Undead or Somewhere in Between

Dead Undead or Somewhere in Between
by: J.A. Saare

One bad corpse can ruin your whole day.

No one knows that better than Rhiannon Murphy.
She left behind the flash and sass of Miami for the no-nonsense groove of New York City, eager for a clean slate, and a fresh start.  A bartender by trade, a loudmouth by choice, and a necromancer by chance; she managed to keep her nifty talent hidden from those around her - until now.
   The deliciously good looking vampire Disco knows her secret.  When he strolls into her bar to solicit help investigating the mysterious disappearances of his kind from the city, Rhiannon discovers he's not the kind of person that appreciates the significance of the word no.
But in a world where vampires peddle their blood as the latest and greatest drug of choice, it's only a matter of time before the next big thing hits the market.  Someone or something is killing vampires to steal their hearts, and unlike Rhiannon this isn't their first stroll around the undead block.

I love Rhiannon.  End of story.  She is so sassy, and loud mouthed, and sarcastic, it's hard to contain one's love for a character like her.

I liked how the plot of the story moved along, there was never a dull moment, and it was fun getting to know all the characters like Goose and Disco.

I know that vampires have been done to death (ha haha) in these recent years so obviously ideas from other books are going to make it to another persons book eventually, but the whole vampire blood drug industry really reminded me of the Sookie Stackhouse series.  But that is pretty much where the similarities end  :)

Disco was enjoyable, and their relationship was awwww (kind of sappy).

I can't wait to read the next book becauuusssseeee.......IT ENDED ON A CRAZY CLIFFHANGER!!!!   OMG!!!!!!!

Next book comes out August 23!

Oh, there is excessive amounts of swearing, and several bloody descriptions in this book.
(probably why I loved it so much)

It's been a while since I've actually picked up another vamp novel or urban/paranormal fantasy novel, but this one sounds interesting, especially the way you describe the main protagonist. I do love a sassy and sarcastic heroine - there are far too few of those in fiction :D
