"A reader lives a thousand
lives before they die."
~George R. R. Martin
I adore paranormal novels and cut my reading-teeth on Anne Rice books back in the day. Then I moved on to Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series, followed by all the Sookie Stackhouse books.
I adored all of them, but I'd never quite found the book that I wanted to read-- one with a heroine more like myself. Not super-young and carefree, but a little more mature with a busy life and responsibilities.
A Vampire soccer-mom. A Witch with a crumbling marriage. A vulnerable Empath in a strip club. Crazy, I know. But fabulous fun to craft!
What readers are saying...
"Overall, a fun, indulgent novel that will appeal to any woman who has struggled with being a working mom and wished for secret powers." ~ Christine, Ensconced in YA
"I made time for this book. I wanted to know what was going to happen next." ~ Mark, Masquerade Crew
"Not your traditional, action-packed vampire tale, but it is one that's full of conflict - emotional, psychological, and (at times) extremely physical. Fast, fun, and . . . dare I say it, empowering . . . this is a wonderful story and one that will leave you anxious for more." ~Sally, Bending the Bookshelf Blog
"Vampires, Intrigue, Drama and a little bit of Spice. What I did not expect was the hilarious writing! A few pages into the book and it is crystal clear that Owen's strong suit is her ability to hit the funny bone every few sentences. " ~Aditi, READioactive Book Blog
"Big girl vampire book. That's right. No character as a role model in this book, the story line is not sugar coated, and Kill Me is definitely not the kind of book my mom used to read!" ~ Goodreads Reviewer
