So I've read this, and I didn't particularly like it. It felt kinda bland, the MC was not that interesting and the girls were beyond bitchy.

3 stars maybe 3.5, not a bad book for book one. It did have some interesting changes to the standard book of this type but nothing earth shattering. The MC was just okay and will have to grow on you. The story/plot was pretty fast paced so I did not get bored. The secondary characters can also be hard to like and have their own issues. The series does show some promise even with some plot holes but I think I will continue with it.

So it's ok.

Ok I thought that the idea for the book was good, but I wanted the women to get eaten by the vamps. They were way to controlling and grouchy.

Warning, minor spoilers. Nothing substantial or plot relevant!

Our MC, a recently divorced mid 40s office worker gets attacked by a vampire. He survives the encounter but does not turn into a vampire, instead he finds himself in a different state, a Ferin. He's picked up by people who are like him and show him the ropes. It's here he meets the first haremette.

The story itself isn't particularly original but written decently enough. Grammar, syntax and the general flow are overall quite good.

Quite bad. The writing seems like one of those A.I. attempts at prose, but with less originality. The characters are irrational and inconsistent. But worst of all, the dialogue is just painfully unbelievable. And graphic sex scenes are thrown in like anchovies in icecream.

The protagonist constantly complains about being kept ignorant, just reminding the reader that there is no reason for this information to be withheld. The occasional planning sessions we see them do are woefully illogical.

I read another book by this author and they both seem to suffer from the same problem of getting off to an excellent start before losing a lot of steam and becoming stagnant very quickly.

Have you ever played one of those big single player video games where the tutorial is so overbearing that you feel like you hand is being held far too long into the adventure?

This is basically what this book is, it's two 'hot' but fairly undeveloped females leading the MC around telling him what to do and how to

Started good but couldn't keep it up.

Premise was good but story became bogged down with the main character's libido. I would suggest author change the genre from urban fantasy to sexual fantasy.

A nice surprise

Many harem stories out now are heavy in erotica and light on plot. It was nice to read a story that was not overwhelmed by the harem aspect. Jason is a 48- year old divorced insurance manager who had the bad luck to use an abandoned gas station bathroom. Whilst there he was attacked by a vampire and left for dead. Saved by two women, he survived and transformed into an ageless 20-year old, called a Ferin and must leave his previous life forever. Ferin are a by-product of those

Not quite vampires, but have strange powers

Ferin, seem to happen when vampires don’t kill their food. They seem more powerful than vampires as they don’t have problems with sun and silver, and get a superpower.... maybe that’s why vampires like to kill off Ferin, they are jealous of these inferior beings. This was a good story with a prophcised killer of vampires trying to skill up and stay alive long enough to become dangerous to his enemies. The harem aspects are light in this book, he has

Exceptional Vampire Fantasy

This has to be the first bit of fantasy involving vampires that I have totally enjoyed. The characters are endearing and their interplay exceptional. The story itself is remarkable from start to finish. The concept is original to my reading experience and from that there is amazement that anyone could have dreamed it up. No politics, nothing but good fun and good reading. I wholly recommend this series, so far.

Not very good

Their was something off about the main character.. I could not get to like him or even understand him...the sex was not needed if the writer could he covered his lack of skill with porno..If I was a teenager I would have enjoy this book but I'm not I would not recommend this book

A new idea about vampires

I liked the ideas this author has about what happens to survivors of vampire bites. I just wish he had given a bit more history about them and their powers but overall a good read. Fewer editing errors them average in selfpublished books

A combination of adventures and acceptance of the change one goes through. Defiantly is worth the effort to read till the end, romance, adventures and supernatural what's not to like.

Absolutely love it!! I picked this up not really knowing what it was about. I've read the authors prior work so figured I'd give this series a shot and I was not disappointed! A well-written story with characters you'll enjoy. I read this book in less than a day and loved every minute of it!

You know?

3 different characters hundreds of years apart in age. All the talked and thought in the exact same way. I liked the story but the characters were almost indistinguishable from each other.

Very interesting story and great audiobook. I must say there seemed to be an unnecessary about of sexual content that, in my opinion, did not help move the story along it was just there. I will most likely pick up the next in the series.

i wanted to like despite the obvious issues.

immortality is a fascinating idea when well written.

This is not one of those occasions.

Great start

This was a great start to a series with great promise. The harem aspect is lighter than what I'm used to, but the story moves along well enough that I didn't notice.

Never heard of Ferin before. However, this book is a good read. Vampires having a natural enemy makes good of though, everything else seems to.

Wow. Just mind blowing. Who writes a harem fantasy lit with crazy SJW females as love interests.
That's just ridiculous.
