Vampire Witch, Book One of the Vampire Witch Trilogy by Eileen Sheehan is set in a world devastated by nuclear war where resources are scarce, but monsters are aplenty. Casey Merker is trying to get by just like anybody else when a strange man appears, searching for her. The weirdest part is that he claims her mother sent him, the mother she presumed was dead. If only Casey knew that this wasn't the weirdest thing in store for her. And so begins Casey's dilemma. Add to that her mother has become a mutant vampire and has promised her in marriage to a wicked vampire king in order to unite the two kingdoms. Now, let’s combine that with the fact that the bearer of such news is a hot and sexy guy who turns out to be a vampire and he steals her heart. Then, to top it off she finds that he has an equally hot vampire brother vying for her love and who she just might have feelings for too.
Ready or not, Casey's life just took a turn for the strange.
Vampire Witch by Eileen Sheehan is a stunning example of how a vampire novel should be done, and I hung onto every page. The storyline and concepts are original, ensuring you’re always left surprised at one thing or another. Sheehan has such a way with words; she seamlessly adds the right amount of information into any given scenario, thus allowing the story to flow without awkward breaks. By this, I mean it often happens that while trying to explain certain concepts within the story’s world, the reader becomes disconnected from the actual scene in the book. This was never a problem; I was constantly immersed in the story and the characters, resulting in binge-reading. The drama and complexities left nothing to be desired, and by the end of the story, I was at the edge of my seat. Vampire Witch had me in a chokehold, and I cannot wait to check out the next book in the series.
