There are many vampire novels out there both by mainstream and indie authors but Jennifer Leigh manages to bring something a little different in her debut novella "Captive".
The opening chapter is intriguing and definitely leaves you wondering what will happen to these characters that seem so sad, so desolate, so different, and yet so the same all at the same time in just a couple of paragraphs.
The story continues with a little more familiarity for those versed in the vampire genre with bonded humans, familiars etc but the story itself never feels stale.
This writer could definitely use an editor to help with some of the common mistakes often found throughout indie style novels but this in no way detracts from a very compelling read.
I am excited to see how this author will develop as her writing matures and she gets more comfortable with her craft but I for one will be definitely looking for her next offering.
4 out of 5 stars, not perfect but a fantastic premier performance that I would recommend to any real vampire lovers.
*Note these are proper vampires and there is a fair amount of blood involved in this story, which I for one appreciate but the adult caution is supported*
