Age of Vampires (series review)

Age of Vampires banner.png

I’ve read all of Peckham and Valenti’s books so I was thrilled when I found out that they would be teaming up to write a new series that blended their respective genres and even more excited when they sent me eARCs to review! Normally I’d write an individual post for each book as it’s released but since this will be a binge-release and I’d been given the opportunity to read them all at once I figured I’d save us all the time and give you my non-spoiler thoughts on the series as a whole! If you enjoy the dark allure of vampires, the thrill of unexpected romance, as well as the rush of dystopian rebels, then you really ought to check this one out. Keep reading for my review and more on each book plus the authors! Continue reading

Blurb:

“Since all of her hopes were dashed, Maya is struggling to adapt to her new life. Where dreams and wishes once kept her going now there is only the burning desire for revenge. She’s changing, hardening into the person she needs to be to hold it together but sometimes the cracks still show. She wants nothing more than to go back and become the person she used to be but sometimes she can’t even remember who that was. Nothing will be right again until she resets the balance. Blood will pay for blood and she won’t give up until the final drop has been spilled. Some say she’s taking it too far, others say it isn’t far enough.”
