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

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.
Don't call it another vampire book...This is a unique story that will make you wonder what happens next!
