Can you answer me this?!

Why is it that I keep stumbling upon these stories (I don't really have a set process for picking books, I just pick up things that sound interesting) that are, not only brilliant, but thought provoking AND belong to a series that I simply MUST read?! It certainly doesn't help lighten my already massively over-sized 'to-read' shelf!

Blood Legacy: The Story of Ryan is one of those stories. It is NOT your typical Vampire tale, but takes a rather medical (tinged with some of

A friend gave me this book, saying it was a good read. My first thought: "Another vampire novel? Whatever..." But then I started reading and it was so much more.

Hawkins' writing style draws you in and holds you. The pacing lifts the reader and carries you from moment to moment in a world that is solidly familiar but, thankfully, is not (or is it?). It is wonderful thinking you know where the plot is headed, only to be surprised at where it is actually going. And the payoff of the details of Rya

Phenomenal! Saw this on facebook from a friend and can't believe I had never heard of it. Already bought the next two books and the graphic novels. If you're truly a vampire connoisseur this is a must read!

Fairly pulpy vampire book. Really interesting idea (goes into anatomy and biology of vampires) but badly written and with a terrible ending.

Ryan, a beautiful and dangerous vampire has somehow drawn the equally beautiful Dr. Ryerson into the deadly world of blood-drinking immortals. Ryan is vampire royalty and there are a lot of Old Ones that wish to either possess or destroy her.

Fantastic tale of Mystery. It felt like CSI meets vamp? A well respected research Dr. comes into contact with women/being that has some very odd test results, and brain waves a random heart beat but she's dead ? These test draw her into a world she could have never though possible before, challenging her every belief. The "women ?" has a long and dark past which she shares with Dr. the mystery gets deeper.....Written with intelligence with strong world building.
I can't wait for the next book in

Read this originally when I was in college. Re-read it. Still like the concept of the story. Will be continuing the series this time around.
