I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I would like to extend my thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley.

My Rating: 4.5 ☆☆☆☆
In one word: Amazing !

Detailed Review:

Alex: "Patience, then, is not a virtue of your kind."
Justin: "Just like mercy isn't one of yours."

First of all, I must say that I love the cover of the book and the little detailing at the beginning of each chapter.

4 stars!!!

I really enjoyed this book tremendously. I thought the concept was quite original. In the sense, that the story is set in a dystopian world but also has a kind of supernatural twist to it. I will get into this a bit more in detailed but first, I'll just summarise the plot a bit for you all. I would like to mention here that I think the cover doesn't really do this book justice. It is colourful but v

I was fortunate enough to receive an eArc copy of Endure in exchange for an honest review from Etopia Press, this will in no way effect my opinion on the book.

But guess which silly book blogger typed up the entire review and accidentally deleted it and has been too upset to tackle it again since then. Yeah that was me. I'm pretty annoyed by the whole experience but *sigh* what can you do.

Any how,

This was a very strange book, and I can’t say that I cared for it much. As happens so often in sci-fi books, or at least ones that I seem to have read lately, the premise was very intriguing, but things just didn’t pan out all that well.

I especially disliked the brutal and excessive violence that replayed itself in a myriad of different ways and scenes in the book. And particularly the way that Justin see

I think Endure is a really promising start to a series that will stand out in the YA crowd. The beginning starts out with an introduction to Justin and his younger sister Sammie. Like other Anemies, the siblings spend their days on the run and their nights in hiding, trying to survive and not get taken during Vie raids. Already in a weakened state due to his illness, Justin does his best to keep the two of them alive on food and water pellets distributed to all Anemies. When Sammie gets kidnappe ...more

I actually really and truly enjoyed this book which somewhat took me by surprise!

I teetered back and forth whether or not to give it a 3 or a 4 and so I'll go midway with a 3.5.

Imagine a world that was invaded by Aliens! Aliens that closely resemble that of the legend of vampires and these aliens call themselves Vie. They live off the blood of their prey and through some experiment eons ago gained immortality through a serum. The cost of immortality? Boredom which inevitably leads to chaos.

Sad to say, this book has been a big "no" for me. First of all, we are thrown into this world without much of an explanation. Some hints are being laid here and there, but for me I found the book was lacking some kind of introduction. I mean, it is somewhat clear that Vies are vampire aliens who come to the Earth and shape it as they like, enslaving humans for their blood and despising Anemies (I guess for lack of nutritional value?), but I would have appreciated some backstory: when they come a ...more

Dawn of the Vie (Immortal Aliens #1) by Laura Diamond is a book about aliens that are essentially vampires who have come to Earth and totally taken over humanity and the world. They took it over quickly and with minimal blood shed. The Vie are in control and shaping the world into how they want it to be. They have enslaved the humans who have normal blood and t

What if vampiric aliens came to Earth, enslaved the healthy human’s and cast out unhealthy humans to the slums? Well if that was to happen, then the future would be this book.

The Vie control everything, including free will and right down to feeding what the author calls “Anemies.”
Healthy humans are the slaves to the Vie. They are their food source and they take care of their homes. The Anem

Another book that I started and was so excited to read just to find that it’s a flop.
Justin won my heart the moment he talked about his little sister. That’s right, he’s a big brother trying to protect his baby sister?
The first 50 pages were amazing. Truly, I was completely in love with Justin and the storyline and the way things were progressing. Until it became everythi

I wavered a bit on how many stars to give this book. In the end, I would settle on 3.5 stars.

It was interesting to see a slightly unique take on the vampire myth, though I would have liked some more details about exactly why the Vie looked humanoid… especially considering what was revealed about them as the book went on.

I found Justin to be an intriguing character, even though I felt he was a bit cl

I liked the general idea of this book, with the Vie dominating an entire city ('New City') with humans and Anemies. It was an ok read but the main problem I have with this book is the characters. Ugh, I couldn't stand Cara, Margaret, or even Justin at times. And it also felt like the Vie were slaughtering everyone until no one was left.

Cara annoyed me so much I wanted to jump into the book and slap her. What happened to Justin's friends was a big part because of her. She could have just walk a

Nobody Mention the Bloodsucker in the Room!

As I write this review, there aren't very many other reviews on this book. And they seem to shy away from the dreaded V word and I'm not sure why. So, I'll say it.

This is a vampire novel!

Vie = Vampires. They aren't scary, but they're vampires nonetheless.

This is a solid vampire novel set in a dystopian world. While there isn't a whole lot that's startlingly original here, the writing style is good, the plot is interesting, and the book is an excellent a

Dawn of the Vie features a future is which the Earth is invaded by a predator Alien species that closely resembles vampires. They are in each and every sense superior to humans and even immortal, although I suppose they age as there are whole families of them. Vie and humans both despise the Anemies, people with a hereditary form of anemia, which makes them unsuitable for feeding.

This is a fairly good book. It has a few good points, good writing, good plot idea and good plot pace. In my opinion it could use some world building and history blended in to make reading it a much better experience. With a bit of polish this could easily be four stars. Overall it's a good read with a much better take on Vampires, and shows promise for further improvement. I'm very curious how the next books continue.
