Review: Absolution - Angela Louise McGurk

Absolution (The Vampire Alliance, #1)Absolution by Angela Louise McGurk
Sarah-Jane's rating: 4 of 5 stars

I think I struggled at first with this book because it jumped about back and forth through time and didn't explain itself fully so often I had noticed I was frowning whilst reading. At around 37% though that changed as the pieces started to take form into what was a most enjoyable read I must say.

It had me laughing and hurting along with the characters and left a major storyline for a sequel. The characters are relatable but with deeper tragedy than normal people have and also doesn't explain certain threads of the story which you wonder about. This is enough to attract you to book two. I have it on my wishlist just now.

I have read plenty other vampire stories and this is definitely in my top 20.

Absolution (The Vampire Alliance #1)

"Every so often a vampire story comes along that changes the entire genre..." - Taken from a reader review.

Absolution is a new story of heartbreak, betrayal, seduction and re-finding love.

Eve Blakethorn can barely remember what it was like to be unaware of the vampire world around her. Many years have passed since she met the stranger, the man who saved her life, gave her the world and promised her immortality. Unfortunately for Eve someone in power had not wanted her to have the world. Within days of her marriage her life is shattered. Everyone Eve cares for, vampire and human, is taken from her and she is left alone to fend for herself in a world she neither understands nor fits into. How can she hope to survive her dark and lonely existence while still plagued by the horrors she witnessed when her husband died? How can she avoid becoming prey to the monster who stalks her footsteps, the devil she has long suspected to be the one who brought about her husband’s downfall?

Desperation drives her every move, leading her into the darkness where monsters wait. Can Eve discover the truth about how her world came to crumble and who was really responsible? Is there another stranger out there capable of bringing her some sense of peace? And just what is the vampire government, The Senate, hiding in the dark tunnels under the city?
