Length: 374 pages
Format: ebook , paperback
From NYT and USAT bestselling authors Denise Grover Swank and Shannon Mayer comes a new twist on the world of vampires . . . In the city that never sleeps, nightmares live in the darkness . . . A series of grisly murders begin to pile up in New York City, murders that have no rhyme or reason and no leads. Unless one chooses to believe that the supernatural is possible. The crimes have caught the attention of two very different women. A journalist fresh off the plane from covering the war in Iraq and a vampire who has chosen to hunt her own kind. Together they will form a reluctant yet unrelenting team. As they slowly begin to crack the fissures behind a government cover up and bioterrorism, they find a truth that neither of them could ever have suspected. And now it's too late for either of them to turn away. Even if it means their lives as they know them will never be the same.
Five (Huge) Boundless Stars
When this book came out back in October I was like, “meh” another vampire book and I had no interest in reading it. However, since then I have been accepted on Shannon’s ARC team and she provided the team with book 2 in the series Replica, for review. So me being the OCD freak I am, COULD NOT start on book 2, it just couldn’t happen!
I am going to stop now and slap myself. I should have NEVER doubted Shannon’s work! I have only read three of Denise’s book and all of those I rated at 4 stars, so I should never have doubted these superior authors, putting together something that is just, in no other words, BADASS! These two women that they created are the new EVERYTHING! The story sucks you in from the first page and it is just so completely action packed and full of suspense, ferocity and thrills you can’t put it down. I read the entire book in a matter of hours.
Take it from someone who is so completely done with vampire stories; there is no sparkly vampire crap here! Just two kickass chicks on a mission that sucks you in, leaving you wanting more. I am giving it 5 HUGE Boundless Stars, I absolutely LOVED it!
