Mel's review of Dark Heirloom by J.D. Brown

"You're a vampire" is so not what Ema Marx wants to hear when she wakes from a two-day coma in a
cryptic yet exquisite castle in northern Finland. Unfortunately, it explains a lot. Like why she's able to see
in the dark and walk through solid objects. What she doesn't understand is why the other vampires
expect her to have all the answers. It's their fault she turned into one of them... right?

Jalmari's hatred for his old-man intensifies when he's ordered to bring that troublesome girl to their castle. He has a clan to run, there's no time for babysitting newborn vampires no matter how they were converted to their culture. But when a two-thousand-year-old premonition threatens to take the crown and his life, Jalmari sees no other choice than to take out the catalyst. Ema Marx. Fortunately for Ema, she could also be the clan's only savior.

The race to figure out her vampiric origins is on. And maybe she'll get the hang of the blood-drinking gig along the way...

Mel's Review
I absolutely loved this book! It grabs you from the very first page and sweeps you through to the end. I
had a hard time breaking myself away from the story to do that pesky sleeping and working thing, and
could have easily read it through in one sitting. J.D. has invented an intriguing vampire history and it
certainly made me think of gypsies in an entirely new way. I adored her characters and with the open
ending I'm thrilled to know there will be a second book so that I can delve a little deeper into her world. I will certainly be buying a print copy of the second book to go with the first one because this series is a  keeper. In my opinion Highly Recommended!
