Killing Vampires? Easy. Tracking someone? Simple. Helping, and protecting a Vampire slayer . . . . Bloody hard work!
Thirteen years ago, Brendan Daniels made a deal with a psychic. In exchange for information on the whereabouts of a Rogue Werewolf, he promised to help and protect Sofia's granddaughter. Unfortunately, he had no idea what he was letting himself, or his Pack, in for.
Nothing about Heather is simple, from her weird dietary needs to her life’s mission. The girl can handle herself, but the promise to protect her soon becomes a need, and one that he can't fully understand.
Vampire Slayer. Born Infected. Blood addict . . . but not by choice.
Heather Ryan is the current Slayer in a long family line. Like all before her, she has spent her life searching for her ancestor, Marko Pavel, the Vampire her family has sworn to kill. If that isn't complicated enough, Heather is also a born "Infected" and to keep her from becoming insane or giving in to her darker side, she is on a very strict diet.
Now that her Grandmother Sofia has passed, it is up to Heather to take the family legacy into her own hands; Or at least, it would have been, if her Grandmother hadn't sent a Werewolf to help her.
What is the irritating Brendan supposed to help her with? Sofia never told either of them. Luckily, it doesn't take long for Heather and Brendan to find out that the Vampires have big plans, and that the Vamps have waited a long time for them both.
I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.
Heather Ryan is a slayer and has spent her whole life hunting a vampire that her family has sworn to kill. This rogue vampire is her ancestor, Marko Pavel. Heather is also a vampire she was born "infected". Which means she was not bitten by a vampire and then she turned into one. It means she was born a vampire. Heather is on a very strict diet of mixing animal blood in with her cranberry juice to keep her dark side under control. Heather does not like feeding from humans.
Brendan Daniels is a werewolf who made a promise to Heather's grandmother a long time ago upon her death to protect and keep Heather safe. Her grandmother Sofia had info on a rogue werewolf that Brendan was in need of at the time. So now after Sofia has died Brendan has entered into Heather's life and home to keep his end of their agreement. But Heather doesn't want him there. She is a tough girl and can take care of herself. But Heather soon finds out that she does need help and that she has to learn to trust people sometimes.
Heather and Brendan are kidnapped by the one vampire that she has been hunting for as long as she has been a slayer. Their kidnappers run experiments on both of them which causes them a lot of physical pain. How will they escape from their captors? What kind of experiments are they doing on them? Will Brendan's pack know he is in danger and need their help? How do they find out?
If you like reading about vampires and werewolves then I think you would really love reading Cranberry Blood with the new twist that Elizabeth has put on being born a vampire. I would like to take this opportunity now to thank Elizabeth for asking me to review Cranberry Blood. I look forward to reading more of her work.
