It's Caitlin's first night in St. Troy. Her first night at college. Her first night away from home.

There are two great girls in her suite, and two cute guys across the hall.

And two vampires fighting over her.

Now she's all alone, locked up in an empty room in a monster's mansion. And there are screams coming from outside just outside the door...

I have to admit that I've grown a bit burned out on vampire books as of late, what with the recent flood of them on the market. But I'm glad to say that I was pleasantly surprised by Sire. The main female character is smart and non-annoying (YAY FINALLY!). The same goes for the other characters. I found myself rooting for secondary characters as much as the main guys. Galvin brought his wit and humor to the story and made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion. Another thing I really enjoye...more

We have one big, bad girl vampire who wants to feed on pretty teenagers and has a serious 'petty girlfriend' complex about guys who aren't her boyfriend. A.k.a "Mine, mine, mine, mine...MINE!"



A vampire who falls in love with a human girl and they have alot of these moments:



Plus, of course, the human girl has her little group of besties. She's all "Hey, my new boyfriend of 24 hours is a freaking vampire!" And they're all like..."Girl, say whaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!"



A love story like no other (well, ki...more

Four stars is generous. I would say 3.5 ish. It wasn't bad. It wasn't fantastic.

What I liked:
•The fast pace. You didn't have time to get bored with it.
•This is really an extension of bullet point number one, but it was definitely a page turner. I couldn't put it down. I wanted to see what happened next. How they were going to get out of this problem. And so on.
•I was genuinely on the edge of my seat for some of the scenes.
•Some of the fight descriptions made me cringe at the gore. Yes, this is...more

In case you didn't know already, I am a fan of the TV show The Vampire Diaries. It’s something that I have in common with the author of Sire, Thomas Galvin. I discovered his hilarious recaps early in the 2nd season of TVD and have been reading them weekly since. So when I heard that he was writing a book series about vampires, it shot to the top of my must-read list. I loved Sire nearly from start to finish. Since I read his recaps of supernatural/paranormal shows like The Vampire Diaries, True...more

I follow the the author,Thomas Galvin, Twitter and LOVE his Vampire Diaries recaps. I had been trying to get the book on my BN Nook for about 2 weeks and it wouldn't work. I tweeted to the author, Thomas Galvin, to let him know that I couldn't get the book and was bummed. Not even an hour later, he emailed me and sent me the book, free of charge! I was stoked. I started reading the book about 2 minutes after he sent it and was instantly hooked! Finished it in just a couple of days. It has my 3 f...more

I couldn’t stop reading Sire if I tried. I went to work with the thought process being, “I’m going to finish that damn book tonight.” Wondering what was going to happen next kept me from doing other things and I love when I read a book and that happens! It takes up my whole day and its worth it. I was surprised at how much I loved the action and how easy to follow it was. The characters are very interesting and there were scenes that were just so incredibly well written that displayed the villai...more

The first thing that came to mind while reading this book was that it was like reading a television show. Very exciting, fast paced, and dramatic. However some elements did not translate well.

It's Caitlin's freshman year of college and we meet her as she's being dropped off at campus (by a taxi) and meeting her roommates for the first time. The first thing that reminded me of a tv show was that there are virtually no adults in this book. No parents, no professors, just a group of attractive 18-1...more

It was a fast paced nod to popular vamp lore these days. I liked it. I loved that it was set in a college town as opposed to high school or just some random location. Great for a self published book. It basically gave me what I expected. Loved the writing style which was hilarious at times and almost a parody of modern vamp fic. Believe it or not I was shocked by the ending. Glad things weren't predictable.

I know Thomas Galvin from his blog featuring hilarious recaps of episodes of vampire shows, including two of my favorite shows, Vampire Diaries and True Blood. His sense of humor is also apparent in this book (and the mini-recaps he has been doing for his online Sire Book Club). It is also a treat to see elements in his vampire novel that he has commented on or made fun of in his past recaps. Overall, I found the book to be entertaining. I like the cold open of the book, I like the characters, I...more

Sire was definitely so much better then I expected it to be. It's very fast-paced, and such a lovely summer read. characters are likeable, at times shallow though. I hope there will be more character development in the upcoming books, because it's missing some kind of a depth to them, I especially hope we get to know Angelica better. LOVED the humor, little puns and sarcastic comments. And I also loved the way a romantic story wasn't necessairly forced into the story, but just kind of happened a...more

I discovered Thomas Galvin because of his hilarious recaps of The Vampire Diaries, so when I heard he wrote a book I was very curious about it. I'm Italian, so usually I don't buy books in english, but I bought this one. I started reading it on Friday night and I finished on Sunday. I simply couldn't stop. Maybe one of the best novels I've ever read, and I read a lot. I don't want to make any spoiler but I can say this: I found myself thinking "OMG, I can't believe it!" at least once. And I'm re...more

I read this book because I really liked the funny episode recaps the author does for one of my favorite guilty pleasure shows, the Vampire Diaries. I'm also happy to support the career of a North Country author (as a native of the area myself.) I believe this is his first novel, and while the character development could have been a bit better, I definitely enjoyed it—especially the snarky tone and the characters' tendencies to NOT do the stupid things that make you want to scream in frustration—...more

First off I would like to say I am usually not a huge fan of YA books.because lets face it I like some smexy in my books.I am however a huge fan of the author's blog and recaps. The beginning had me worried that it was gonna be another one of those teeny bopper vampire books,and it was, but I was pleasantly suprised with great one-liners and loads of sarcastic humor. I found myself laughing out loud a few times. All in all, I think he did a great job on his first book without an editor. Looking...more

When I first began reading Sire I wondered if it was going to be just like The Vampire Diaries, there were some similarities but it was different. The story definitely kept me intrigued and the character development was good. I would give the story a 4, but more editing was necessary. I know the the author explained this at the end. I hope that the book is successful and that there is more editing for the next book. All in all a good read.
Stacy
This book was very fast paced. I had a hard time putting it down because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. There wasn't a moment to get bored with the book. You don't expect any of the characters to be safe, which is a refreshing change. This is not a predictible book and that's what I liked best about it. I can't wait to read the sequel!
Pepca
Sire Sire is pretty much everything I look for in paranormal genre. I loved its action-packed plot, fantastic characters, and just enough romance to make a girl swoon.RECOMMENDATION: Sire is an amazing collage of a little bit of everything paranormal. It is a real page-turner and a must-read for the fans of the genre. 4.5 stars
Brittany
The book was great.

The characters in this story have a very real essence about them. And the action never stops. Not once was i bored having to read through unimportant information.

I'm on the edge of my seat to see what happens next.
Leslie
it's one hell of a good book! damn with its frustrating cliff-hanger! I felt like i'm screaming for more! Sire was one of the best vampire novel that I've ever read! praise for this excellent book! love it! <3
Misty
So disappointed in this. I was so bored by this. I normally expect to suspend belief when reading paranormal books, but at times this was ludicrous.
Dani
I really enjoyed this book. Loved the fast pace of the book. I read it so fast that now I am waiting for the second book to come out.

Thomas Galvin is many things: an attention whore, an arrogant jerk, a jaded cynic. But he's also an author who spends far too much time thinking about vampires and the teenage girls that love them.

He may also be a were-corgi-pire. No one is really sure, but the way he avoids the subject makes us think he's hiding something.

Thomas lives in the desolate middle of New York, along with The Lady of the...more

“He tossed back the last of the blood. "I'm going to be young forever. I can do anything I want. Drink as much as I want. Sleep with anyone. Live a life of debauchery. And I'll never change. I'm like Dorian Gray." His eyebrows knit together, and he thought for a moment. "Without all the homosexual undertones.” 4 likes
“Love triangles are a bitch," Angelica said.
"So are you," Caitlin murmured.
The vampire laughed. "I'm going to pretend I didn't hear that.”
