At this time I will no longer be taking any new review requests or participating in any memes. There will still be author interviews, blasts, guest posts and occasionally reviews posted (as I climb through by TBR pile!!). Life is kind of hectic and I have to focus on a few other commitments before coming back full-time to my blog. Thank you to everyone that has supported me and I won't be gone forever. I will still be around on my social media sites!

Review: The Vampire's Warden by S.J. Wright

The Vampire's Warden (Volume 1)The Vampire's Warden
by S.J. Wright
Series: Undead in Brown County, Bk 1
Publisher: CreateSpace
Publication Date: February 15, 2011

Sarah Brightman has been in charge of running her family’s Inn since her father’s death. With the handyman, “Crazy Joe”, and the motherly Nelly, things seem to be running smoothly. There is an undercurrent of resentment that Sarah carries for her sister, Katie, who is able to attend college and pursue her dreams. But Sarah knows that duty must come first. One thing she didn’t bargain for was what all that duty includes.

Dr. Chester Fleming has brought Sarah a journal that belonged to her started by her grandfather. He feels that the time is right and Sarah must face her fate. That fate includes becoming the Warden for a vampire jail. Now, not all vampires are held in this containment field against their will. Some are there just for a nice long sleep. Sarah also discovers that her mother hasn’t died but abandoned them to become a vampire and was turned by none other than the bad boy himself, Michael, who has been imprisoned against his will. So since we have a bad boy, we now need a good boy. Enter Alex, who has a mysterious past himself, but is here to help Sarah and guide her.

I like the premise of this book. The problem I had is I didn’t feel that the story was complete. There seemed to be huge holes that needed to be filled and information that needed to be supplied. The characters weren’t as rounded as I would have liked them. This was a real quick read at 186 pages but I think it could have easily been double that and would have been fantastic.
