The current popularity of vampire and werewolf literature has brought forward many new writers to the genre, amongst which Elizabeth J. Kolodziej, whose debut novel Vampyre Kisses takes much inspiration from bestseller favourites.

Vampyre Kisses follows twenty-something Faith, whose boring working life is turned upside-down when the mysterious Trent sets his sights on her. Their budding relationship brings her into contact with the other side of New York—a world of vampires, werewolves, and witch

Ok stop me if you have heard this one before. Human girl meets mysterious guy who later turns out to be a vampire! Girl has some vague destiny, vampire has eating disorder, things get in their way of true happiness…lost you yet? Well none of this applies to “Vampyre Kisses”.

“Vampyre Kisses” is a new book from brand new author Elizabeth J. Kolodziej. Yes, Faith is a human girl with a destiny, but she is also a witch, the last of her kind. Trent is a vampire, but he is not your average brooding Ba

Vampyre Kisses is the first installment of "The Last Witch" series. This is a YA series that is suitable for teens.

I was asked to be a part of a tour for Book 2 so I figured I'd better read Book 1 *teehee* At first I thought that I had gotten in over my head, I didn't think I was going to like the book at all and I hate to give a bad review and I WON'T do a bad review as part of a tour! But I really didn't want to back out since the Author seems to be a genuinely nice person :)

I'm really glad

Vampyre Kisses took me by surprise. I was expecting the typical tale of forbidden love between a mortal and a vampire (Thanks a whole lot, Twilight, for bringing that flood upon us). What I actually got was an in-depth story with detailed characters and a rich history; a world filled with vampires, werewolves, gods, slayers...and a witch. That's right, one witch. Witches have been eliminated but families live on, and the power is in the bloodline. If certain circumstances unfold in just the ...more

Vampyre Kisses has been selected to join my list of favorite books. It's a wonderfull book that explains in detail the supernatural world of a witch, vampire, werewolf , shap-shifter and more. Elizabeth did an amazing job at painting a picture with words in her story. I loved the plot because it was funny, mysterious, and continued to surprise me. I loved Faith because of her sassy attitude and how she took control of situation although she has no idea why or how she has done so. I especially ...more

Wow this one was fun! The author is really good at creating her own mythology, and it's not the conventional human/vampire romance. And Oran, oh I loved that flying cat! Toward the last part of the book it got really hard to follow because of the amount of characters and their ~backstories~ but it was okay overall.

My Summary:

Faith really hasn’t been the same since the mysterious death of her father. She’s never felt comfortable around her mother so she avoids her. Living in her tiny apartment and not enjoying her job, Faith has lost sight of her dreams. Her father once told her she would cause others to have faith in her. He had such great dreams for her. Now all of that seems to have died with him. On a whim, she goes to a club with her best friend Mac. It’s not her normal thing but it’s been a while sin

*Received this book from the author for review

This book gets 2 gnomes and a gnome hat out of 5 gnomes for having great characters but a plot that is just all over the place.

The prologue is entertaining because it puts forth an interesting mythology about witches and introduces the reader to Circe a goddess who many people will know from having read The Odyssey by Homer in high school.

I do like the characters in the story but found myself wanting more from them. Would love to get more
Smash Attack Reads:

Last October, I participated in the Blog Tour for Vampyre Kisses. I had not yet read the book but I’m happy to help promote new authors. The book definitely sparked my interest due to the Irish lore and well, Irish vampires, of course! Also, Salt Whip is a kick ass term for a witch killer. If Elizabeth came up with that one on her own, kudos!

The characters are likeable in the story. Faith is so easy going and sweet. She stood up for oth

After rolling this novel around in my head for a couple of hours I have finally decided on 3 stars.

This novel is mostly about a woman named Faith who is bored with her life then she meets Trent and all sorts of interesting things start happening. First off being she learns of vampires and that she is a witch but not only that but the last witch.

When beginning this book I have to admit I had my doubts as it had a very rough start to me and the formal speech that we get from t

Vampyre Kisses is the debut novel from Elizabeth Kolodziej. This book was epic on multiple levels. I read a lot of paranormal- there are no less than 4 series of vampire books on the shelf beside me as I type this- so I love to find an author who can create a world that isn't s cookie cutter replica of someone else's vampires/werewolves. Vampyre Kisses shows a great deal of research on Liz's part to make such a vibrant world that is so obviously entrenched in the myths and legends of real ...more

It's been a while for me since my last book about witches and, so far, I think this is one of the bests. At the beginning of the story we have Faith, an average girl that was actually, quite bored of her life. A while ago she had lost her dad and, for some reason her mother seems to dislike her a lot (such a mother material here...). On top of that her job as a secretary is rather boring and the only light in her life is Mac, her best friend and old lover.

Faith and Trent meet at a bar. She doesn’t know he is a vampire and he realises that he cannot take her to his master to feed on because there is something unusual about her. It turns out Faith has been ‘kissed’ by a vampire which means she is under the protection of a powerful vampire so no-one can feed off her or kill her. Then Faith’s witchery ancestry emerges and she accepts this hidden part of her identity and tries to connect with it.

The premise for this story is quite interestin

From the title, I can directly guess there will be vampire in this book.I thought it would give me a same legend with what I have got in some book with same genre. But I was wrong. Elizabeth gave me many different things about vampire, werewolf, slayer even witch with her familiar. It looks like opening book which is totally new. I like all her ideas. She wrote the details very well. Nothing stopped me from reading it to the last pages, although in first few chapters, there are some disrupting ...more

I met Elizabeth J. Kolodziej at this year's Book Blogger Convention and while I didn't realize at first that she was a novelist, I was happily surprised when she told me about her book. I am grateful to her for loaning me her last physical copy (as I've mentioned before, I'm a little less than excited about ebooks.) I will be purchasing my own copy to add to my keeper shelves as I loved it so much the first time, I know I'll want to read it again and again.

Are you a fan of witches, vampires, immortals, werewolves, shape shifters, and all the other creatures that roam our planet, whether seen or unseen? If so, then join Faith and Trent as they search for two gems that have been stolen and that could cause war between vampires and werewolves, if the gems are not found.

I got this book yesterday and I started it today. Already love the beginning!

I finished this book on Nov 12th. It was a great book. I love the world that Elizabeth created. What a wonderful mix of all paranormal beings that we love so much. I love that Faith, the lead character, jummps right into the knowledge of the paranormal world around her. I would personally do the same thing and therefore love her even more for this. The characters are strong characters with greatly detailed personalities

I don't know about ya'll, but when I read a vampire/werewolf story I automatically begin comparing it to the Twilight series. Sorry fantasy authors ... blame Stephanie Meyers' success for this happening ... Vampyre Kisses was not immune to my comparisons.

I was pleasantly surprised in that the only similarity I noticed was the human-werewolf-vampire love-triangle. And, slight spoiler alert, yes, Faith chooses Trent, the vampire. But let's be honest, shall we? Who wouldn't choose a vampire over a

I read this book during a vampire/paranormal book marathon over the holidays. It was an enjoyable fast read. The main character was likeable and I enjoyed how she kind of got swept up into the whirlwind of the vampire and paranormal beings around her. It starts off with a foretelling of sorts (that's in the prologue), and then you delve into the first person dialogue of the main character named, Faith. Faith's voice was perky and entertaining and I must say I enjoyed reading her dialogue more ...more

This wasn't another "boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, boy is a vampire" kind of blah story. Kolodziej created a mystical tale full of magic and mystery. It's a fascinating world, completely unique compared to the cookie cutout worlds most vampire authors use.

The best part, Vampyre Kisses isn't just a simple story; it's a whole new universe. A universe full of not only humans and vampires, but werewolves, gods, witches and more. Kolodziej certainly did her research; she mixes fiction with real

This is a good first book. The author's writing improves dramatically as she settles into her story and characters. I found the story creative and engaging. And the sexy vampire, Trent, didn't hurt matters . The relationship between Faith and Trent seemed very natural and real. The author does a great job of building the romance and making it sexy, but sweet. Did I mention that Trent is swoon worthy ? There is a good plot, a lot of interesting secondary characters and you can see the development ...more

Wow! Vampyre Kisses is a gr8 book. It is adventuristic and has a fun mix of Greek Mythology, Vampires, Witches, and Werewolves. The two main characters are Trent, an Irish vampire, and Faith who is the LAST witch of her kind. That's right a WITCH named FAITH, how clever. Also, her witch "race" is about to go exctinct! The book contains mayhem and romance. If you never felt sorry for a witch, now is your time. Rob :)
