The Thorns. A series, A trilogy all in one book. Loved it. I will not agree with the one and only review, because obviously, this person didn't give the series a chance. Bias. Oh yeah they love vampire stories, but did it even cross their minds that these vamps were different? Obviously not.
I will agree that 1894 and DNA did not match up, but hell it didn't take away from the series at all. It was mentioned 2 times in three novels. Really?
As I took it, the first of the three was the set up. It gave me why they did what they did, however, the second and third books continued. The boys grew up, and things went well beyond the Baby Farm.
Do all Vampire stories have to be the same? Do they all have to be traditional? Nope. I look for different in the Vamp stories I read. The Twilight series taught me that.
So, if you are looking for the traditional Vamp finds girl and seduces her to become his queen, forget it. This is much different. I will totally recommend this to all who are looking for something out of the ordinary.
Alec, and his sons are so not normal...Almost human.

I'm glad I didn't pay for this book. I absolutely love vampire stories, but this one is a bit much to take. I only finished the first book, and only because I wanted some resolution to the story. The book takes place in 1895 and the vampires are impregnating hundreds of human women with their babies. Not a single woman survives the birth. I'm surprised that they didn't run out of child bearing women by the end of the first story! And then they started talking about DNA... They also got into fights for the dumbest reasons! I could go on, but suffice it to say, this book was a disappointment to me.
