Poison Blood, Book 1: Revelation (Poison Blood Series)

Rated 4.00/5 based on 5 reviews
"I don't know what blood tastes like to a human. I'd never even licked a tiny drop of it from a pricked finger, let alone suck on a bleeding cut. The shedding of blood, my own, or anyone else's, always made me scream or panic in fear and revulsion. Now it's my only food source." Ellie is not a typical teenaged vampire. She still has her humanity and conscience. And the same distaste for blood. More

I enjoyed this book. I have read so many free paranormal romance books and this one kept me reading. I found the whole slayer angle interesting and I am excited to read the third installment. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is the whole diamond sparkly skin thing which was too familiar to Twilight for me.

I've now read Poison Blood 1 and 2 - both of which I loved and read each in less than 24 hours. I was gripped and Neha had me turning the e-pages! I am definitely hooked on the Poison Blood Series and now eagerly awaiting Book 3!

So let's start with Poison Blood 1 - I'll be honest I wasn't sure what to expect. I had read Neha's first novel 'Chasing Pavements' which I loved so I thought I'd give Poison Blood a try even though part of me was unsure whether yet another vampire story was worth telling... It definitely was! Yes like another reviewer has mentioned Neha takes some inspiration from the Twilight saga in terms of Vampire mythology - Neha unashamedly embraces this and I knew what to expect as I has read it in her Author Q&A - yet that's really where the similarity ends. Let’s be clear this is not fan fiction. There is so much more to the Vampire world that she creates, and she really does create a 'world' - with its own rules and justice system. Obviously this is a world that (unknowingly to most humans) co-exists with our world - That becomes important later on, and I'm sure it will further develop in the Poison Blood Series, as the two worlds: human and vampire inevitably collide - but really this is a character driven story. In fact this is where the similarity to Chasing Pavements arises – of course the story is entirely different - but Neha's characters depths are what drive her stories, each with their hidden secrets of course.
This is the story of Ellie, a seemingly ordinary teenage girl - who fights with her parents and hangs out with her friends - until one day she is created as a vampire . Ellie is not a typical vampire - she hates the taste of blood and abhors the thought of harming human life. There is more to Ellie than even she knows … Book 1 of the Poison Blood series really is about the ‘Revelation’ (it’s good!).

Review by: Mary Powell on Oct. 05, 2012 :
The author can write. She has a good flow with words. BUT, I couldn't get past the 2nd chapter. As soon as she talked about her diamond skin that glitters in the sunlight, that was a big turn off. OK the Twilights were good books, but do all vampires have to have that skin now. I love Twilight but I don't like the skin attributes. I think it is as far fetched as a vampire should be. My opinion but when other authors copy that... Maybe I will pick it up at another time but for now, sorry.

Coming to terms with her new life is hard for Ellie. She is a moody seventeen year old, living rough on the streets of London. Still hurt from the revelation of her mother’s secret, Ellie longs for a childhood that she never had. Oh yeah, and did I mention she is a vampire?

I have to admit I was sceptical at first. Being a novel about vampires, my first thought was ‘I hope it’s not another Twilight knock-off!’ But actually I was pleasantly surprised. This is definitely not a soppy vampire romance novel! If anything, it is a coming-of-age story. It is her past that Ellie finds difficult to come to terms with, not her present. But if she wants to move on in her new life, her past is the very thing that she has to accept…

I don’t want to give too much away, but as usual with Neha Yazmin’s novels, things are never as they seem. Just as Ellie comes to terms with one secret, she finds out that her mother was hiding so much more. Much much more!

I really enjoyed reading this novel. I loved the way the puzzle pieces of Ellie’s life unfold. Just as you think you have a grip on what’s happening, Neha drops more bombshells to keep you guessing (and the pages turning!) If I have one complaint, it is that Book 1 ended just as I was really getting into it. I hope that Book 2 is released soon. I have a taste for blood - Poison Blood that is! Please publish the next book soon!
