I received this book from the Good Reads giveaway, but this review is my own opinion.

I really enjoyed this book and the story of our main character. She's not your usual kick ass heroine, but she does learn to fight back and does so well. I loved the way the book swapped between the character's present life and her life before and after she was turned. I do enjoy finding out about how vampires became what they are and this book also gave me a different insight into how the very first vampires we

The story starts near the end and then goes back and forth which is a bit disconcerting as I found it did not flow as well because of this style of writing. Once I got further into the story, it did not seem to bother me as much. Tamson is being pursued by her soul mate and we garner an understanding of her life before Adam and then the chain of events that set her current journey into motion. I did not particularly like Adam though I did sort of understand his motives but his definition of love ...more

Received last night and hope to start soon. 4/22/11
Started and Finished Saturday 4/30/11

It is the late 1800's and Tamson is having her debut. She dances with a lot of different men and has a special connection with one, but keeps hearing a voice telling her she is his not anyone elses. She ends up a vampire later on seeking revenge on the one that made her that way.

This was a fun read. A totally different take on the whole vampire rage going on rig

Vampire Reborn differs from the typical vampire themed book. It has a unique plot that mixes in elements of vampire lore and the Genesis creation narrative. Although I found the plot to be captivating the overall structure of the story took away from my ability to enjoy it. There were many grammatical errors and sentence fragments, which created awkward sentences that disrupted the flow of the narrative. On the whole the book is a great start for a writer. Keep up the good work.

The only reason I finished this book was it was a First Reads win, and I felt an obligation to review it. Ms. Southee uses far too many sentence fragments, has difficulty with verb tenses and has problems with homophones. In addition, the characters are two-dimensional, and none of the situations make the reader care what happens to the characters.

This book was sent to me for review.

Because I'm very pleased about new author in the vampire genre, I was curious about this book. So the story begins similar with "Interview with a vampire", well, kind of. Because the female vampire Tamson wait for a victim. After she feed, she go to her apartment and begin to write down her past. Her maker, Adam, she wants to kill because he destroyed her life. Then you have a time gap and she talk about her life as human. So the story is written from the view of Tamson. That's very interesting ...more

This is the first book in the Tamson Huntress series, and the first book by author Emma Southee. Yes, it's "another" vampire story, but this has some twists that I've never heard before in relation to the vampire mythos. The story was short and to the point, but a perfect length for an introduction to the main character.

The story was very well written, if not for a few editing errors. But it's the kind of book that I thought about all the time when I wasn't reading it - even in my dreams. (I'm

I won this book for free from Goodreads First Reads Program.

It was a fast read - of course it's barely over 200 pages. I received an ARC version of the novel, which made it very hard to read as the novel was completely unedited. Also the author's style was a bit difficult with many fragments and unfinshed thoughts. The story has some potential and with heavy editing could be a decent read. However I don't think I will be reading the next installment in the Tamson Huntress series unless I'm desp

This is a great story, and I would recommend it to any fan of vampire novels or urban fantasy. A really well-written book, although in parts it still feels unpolished. However, this novel definitly provides a new twist on vampire-fiction.

I won this book in a good reads contest. From what I've heard about the book it resembles Interview with a vampire by Anne Rice. So I'm really looking forward to checking it out.

I was raised in Europe and America as an Air Force brat.
I began writing in the 80's with short stories I illustrated myself and poems on cards I made.

In 99 I moved from poetry and very short stories to trying my hand at novels. Life kept getting in the way. Marriage, deployment, moves, children, jobs, hard drive crashes ALL seemed to keep me away from the Keyboard.

I finally quit my day job and foc
