I just had to make this a really big cover for my review.

BOOK REVIEW:

Tim..Tim...Tim...what can I say but another AWESOME instalment in the Kiera Hudson series. I am totally sucked into his books when I am reading them that I so want to be an extra if these books ever got made into movies. Like seriously, I don’t care if I get raised in the air and my neck ripped open and I get flung across a car bonnet, and that is all I get to do ( well a close up would be cool..), I just want a part as they are so entertaining.


Vampire Breed comes with the twists, turns, spontaneity, smexi, the tension, gorey moments ( like Tim wouldn’t have some of those..duh!), the smart ass remarks, a bit of cranky pants, jealousy, experiments, oh and some awesome ranting and raving...ha!....., a crossbow, beloved children’s books ( oh yeah, why not), werewolves, vampires, doctors, a cell, a zoo........that’s all I am going to say.


Kiera is in it up to her eyeballs. As the reader we get to spend a bit of time with her one on one and you really get to ‘feel’ her isolation and pain. Kiera has really grown as a character and is a lot fiercer. I can’t wait to read what happens to her character in Vampire Hollows, the 5th book. No pressure Tim.....ha!


Oh I love my quotes and Potter does not fail me...bless that boy. The yelling matches Kiera and Potter have are hilarious. Oh there is one quote I so want to put in this review, but it would be spoiling, so I must zip it.


Now it would be remiss of me not to drool over the guy that has always caught my eye. I just knew from Vampire Shift that I was going to love Potter..... Mr Sean Potter...Team Potter. I have been a fan from the start and you don’t disappoint.


For all his smart ass comments, his cranky pants moods, there is something special about him. In this instalment I saw another side to Potter, a worried side. The boy has it bad and he is no longer surrounded by the 2 guys that he trusts most to have his back and to keep Kiera safe. He has the newbies, Isidor and Kayla that he must work with, who he needs to be able to rely on, and that frightens him. Potter may wear his cranky T-shirt, but it’s for a reason. He has lost those he cares for, who could read him like a book, no need to explain your next move and it’s payback time and he needs back up that’s not booing and hooing.


Well doesn’t Kayla have a change of heart.......rather hilarious!


I’m trying to decide if I like Jack Seth or not. I ‘feel’ that he is trying but...hmmm....I’m not sure yet. Maybe if I had been around to watch what he used to do, I may not want to give him a second chance.


I am truly having a hard time deciding which book is my fave in this series to-date. I love them all, but Vampire Hunt was my fave. Now, I have to put Vampire Breed equal with VH. I am being sentimental as I miss my three boys being together and VH was the book that had them on the mad rollercoaster ride.

Tim is still weaving that bit of mystery through Vampire Breed that keep us wanting to know what the deal is with Kiera's mum. What part does she play in all this?


I shall slip in, Tim gave me a little teeny dedication. I was his chip supplier, nothing like a vegemite flavoured chip and a meat pie flavoured chip to munch on while writing.


Thanks Tim I feel all spesh. I do enjoy our conversations from one pond to another. I’ve never had a book dedicated to me before, so that’s pretty cool.


I must mention the book cover. How gorgeous and muscle packed is that bod? Potter just has that look on his face.....he is rather perfect! I love how Kiera is holding on tight to her guy. My fave cover next to Vampire Shift. 

I’m going to say it again....I highly recommend this series, Tim nailed it again. It’s the best .99c per ebook you will spend!


This is one self published author that breaks the mould.....



FAVE QUOTES:


“Look, I hate to be the one to break it to you, sweetheart, but some spottyfaced arsehole called Sparky killed your mum, your father has probably topped himself because he helped Phillips come up with the magic formula that is going to wipe the human race from the face of the planet, and the dude standing over here next to me with the Shaggy-Do beard is your brother.”



“I wonder what’s down there?” I whispered.

“Why are you whispering?” Potter whispered back.

“Dunno,” I shrugged, and followed him down into the pitch black.

( ha! I can't help giggling when I read that quote, like why are they whispering...hee..hee...)



“That was the biggest mistake of my life, because that one kiss from you drove me out of my tiny freaking mind!”
 

And I thought you were being a stroppy-cow because you were struggling with how you felt about me,” he smiled.
