Buckle up my lovelies because you’re in for one Hell of a ride! “Vampire Girl” is the first in a series of novellas by a husband and wife team, Lux Kinrade and Dmytry Karpov. It follows an eighteen year-old girl named Arianna Spero as she discovers there’s been a contract on her soul made with the king of Hell and signed by her mother (there’s a good reason). Now she’s been whisked away to the realm of Hell where she has to spend time with the seven princes of Hell, in each of their kingdoms, in order to pick the new king of Hell since the old king has kicked the bucket….or was it murrrrrderrrrrr? *insert dramatic music here*
I actually stumbled across the trailer for this one while scrolling Facebook at 2 am because what the fuck else is there to do at that time of morning when you can’t sleep! I also had no idea that books now have live action trailers, which is slightly weird for me, but whatever works. The novella only has 153 pages so the pace is fast and there’s not a lot of room for in depth description, which was kind of a let down because I actually watched that live action trailer and it looked totally badass.
The relationships seem forced at times and thrown together. There’s nothing that irks me more than a forced, to the point of being as fake as Pamela Anderson’s boobs, relationship. If it’s going to happen at least make it feel believable! I will take this opportunity to say I have already read book two and I’m currently on book three, the review on book two is coming tomorrow.
“But, Heather, you’re ripping this book a new asshole why would you read the whole series?,” you may be asking yourself, or you could be talking to your mobile device I’m not going to judge you! The answer is, it really does have a good plot line and it’s an interesting read! You can get “Vampire Girl” by Karpov Kinrade for $0.99 on Amazon Kindle and in paperback on barnesandnoble.com for $10.29 (not gonna lie, I wouldn’t pay $10.29 for a 153 page novella when you can get it on your Kindle or download the Kindle app for free and then download the novella for $0.99).
Overall I’m going to rate this one a 5.5 out of 10 because the story line is really good it just needs more fluff to make it better!
