Title: Vampire Origins - Project Ichorous (The Strigoi #1)
Author: Riley Banks
Genre: YA Paranormal
Formats Available: All via Smashwords
Pages #: 374
Review Due Date: March 2/14


From the Christian Crusades to the war in Afghanistan, the Vampire Origins series seamlessly weaves historical fact with vampire fiction.

Exploring the origins of five very different vampire tribes - Strigoi, Cambion, Strix, Nosferatu and Bretonnian - the series opens with Book 1 of the Strigoi series; Project Ichorous.

He slaughtered 30,000 in one night in Jerusalem and impaled 100,000 more in Romania in the 1400s. Now Vlad has discovered a way to enslave humans and rule the world - and this time, the death toll will be catastrophic.

Only one thing can put an end to his plans - a Strigoi human. And Vlad will stop at nothing to eradicate every last one.

Scarlett Fraser has no idea she's the very thing Vlad is hunting, or that the castle her dad is renovating is ground zero for Vlad's Ichorous Project and his plans for world domination.

She can stop Vlad and save the world but she must stay human long enough to do so.

As Scarlett is about to discover, staying human is a lot easier said than done.

Laura smashwords is just another place where you can buy books. The great thing is you can download just about any format from there (well most of the time), they have the mobi (kindle), epub for nooks and ipads. even pdfs.

So if you go to smashwords and sign up for an account would be the first thing.

Then when I send you the email it will come with a link click on the link it will bring you right to the book. From here you basically click on buy on the right hand side. It will bring you to another page where you will see the price and under that it says coupon code, in the email I will send you a code. Inset the code and hit checkout and you will see the price now has turned to 0.00. Then download.

I hope that helps and you can understand it, I've only had one cup of coffee.

oh another thing is when your on smashwords make sure you have the adult content checked. It should be on the right hand side of your page. For some reason if this is on it doesn't show all the books.

Ryan Sand (ryan925) | 20 comments After reading Vampire Origins I must say that it was nice not reading an overly sappy story. The story is easy to follow and the book was easy to read.

My biggest issue with the story (This is strictly my personal preference And not fault with the author) is the involvement of children being attackedand turned.

Overall I would recomend the book.
