Different View of Vampires!

Vampire: Origin of the Vampire is a new twist on how we look at vampires. This book views vampires in a different way as benign creatures but the bad ones are known as rogues.

The author has created a fascinating and action-packed story of intriguing characters with strong personalities. The main protagonist is Phoebe. She is strong willed and opinionated and is always questioning everything and everyone in her path. When she meets a real life vampire her world is turne

I found the author's take on the origin of the vampire myth to be an interesting one, and thought this book was a pretty good read for the most part.

A fabulous new take on the ancient vampire legend. The characters are beautifully woven through this tale and I at times felt sorry for the main character and at other times want to shake her. Sign of a good writer, that. The plot was full of twists and turns which surprises at the right moment. A well written and very enjoyable read.

Normally, I am not a fan of vampire or other “monster” genre stories, but when I read the book’s description along with Frisco’s idea for the book, I was intrigued. Plus, I am fascinated with the Viking myths. As I read this, it reminded me loosely of an old 70s movie, "Frankenstein: The True Story," which told the classic monster story from a psychological and scientific point of view.

Author Tina Frisco offers a compelling and realistic view of the origin of vampires. The characters in Vampyri
