Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Veiled by Stacey Rourke @Rourkewrites @XpressoTours

Stacey Rourke
Publication date: November 7th 2017
Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy

Political propaganda would have us believe vampires are our friends. Fanged teddy bears misunderstood thanks to archaic lore. Activists picket for them to be welcomed into our society.

They claim vamps don’t kill.
They preach we are safe.
They … are dead wrong.

One year ago a hive slaughtered my family and left me for dead. Found by a team of scientists with their own agenda, I was forged into an unstoppable weapon.

I possess their strength, with none of their weaknesses.
I can move among them free from their crippling hunger.
I am their greatest threat.

Armed with this arsenal, vengeance will feed my desire to penetrate the seedy underbelly of their fetishized lifestyle and expose them for the monsters they truly are.

My Review:

While Veiled was kind of slow in the beginning with it going from the past to the present, back and forth. But once I figured out that she was having flash backs giving me her background I was like that is good. I got this. Once I figured that out it picked up and I zoomed right through it.

Imagine living in a world where vampires are real, vampires and humans living together in the same neighborhood or apartment building, working the same jobs. Well some humans are trying to do the right thing and get along with vampires and some are not of course but there are some vampires that only think of humans as food too.

Our main girl Vincenza, a human lost her family to a group of rogue vampires. When the vamps left they thought Vincenza was dead but she was saved and now she will stop at nothing to find the vamps that took her family away from her and make them pay if it is the last thing she does. Vincenza is not alone after losing her family she has the help of her best friend Micha to help her through it.

Veiled is not the first book by Stacey Rourke that I have read and it won’t be the last. The first book I read by Stacey was Rise of the Sea Witch and then TS901: Anomaly and loved them both. I can’t wait for book 2 Vlad. I can’t wait to read more of her work. I am patiently waiting for the second book of these series.

I loved the whole new twist on the vampires in Veiled and can’t wait to read more about them. Vincenza is a very strong girl considering what she has been through and living in a vampire world. I love this new vampire world that the author has created. I just loved Vincenza with all her witty come backs.

Pick up your copy of Veiled and find out more about Vincenza and the new twist on vampires and their world.

This sounds like a fun and unique vampire read! I haven't read a vampire book in a while, too! I should give it a try myself! :)
