Book review: Vamps by Nancy A. Collins

One of another vampire stories that I have been hooked on recently. I realised that there are really a lot of vampire stories on the market recently. Probably due to the twilight saga?

Simply to put, this vampire story is a three-way fight among the Old Bloods, New Bloods and the Vampire Hunters. I like the way the plot twists and turns the situations but some of them are just way too cheesy for my liking.

Lilith is a bitch who cares more about her heritage than any other things, including her mother. As one of the distinguished family members of the Old Bloods, she is able to get her way most of the times and she intends to keep it that way. But all changes when her half-sister comes into the picture and turning everything upside down. Of course, she didn't know that Cally is her half-sister until they got into a fight and she tasted her blood. Before that, when Cally was transferred from the New Blood School to the Old Blood's, she tried to make Cally as uncomfortable she could so that Cally would transfer out of school of her own accord. However, there is a reason why Cally agreed to the transfer...

Now, she is afraid that she would lose all the fame and prestige that she covets and she plots to remove her sister. Also, her sister is a half-human, who inherits powers from both sides of the family and is a powerful half-vampire in her own right.

Story's not too bad. A little bitchy at times but then there are many interesting characters that caught my interest and I devoured the book in less than an hour. It's a perfect read while being on the train as you don't need much brains to figure out what is going on.
