The Search ~ Review

The Search 
(Book 2 in The Descendant Vampire Series)

Allison Carmichael is thirsty for blood and hungry for answers.

Lured away from her illicit extracurricular activities by news about her kidnapped husband, Allison rejoins her adopted family that’s promised to help her find him. Allison's search is detoured, however, by sinister vampire politics, the seeming good will of her fanged family, and the return of her nemesis. Circumstances unfold that shatter the foundation of her world.

In order to successfully play the game she has been thrust into, Allison must battle loss and betrayal and accept unexpected love.

THE SEARCH is on for answers, but when answers are found, will they be what Allison was looking for?

My Review:
5 Stars
A completely different take on the vampire world!, September 11, 2013
A completely different take on the vampire world!
If you love your vamps as much as I do you will find this story intriguing! If you are looking for a whole new intense world to jump into grab a copy of this book now. Kelley Grealis takes us to a slightly darker side of the vampire world showing us many personalities from newborns to the ancients along with plenty of action, emotion, & suspense.
These vampires definitely don't sparkle, but they will have you entranced none the less! Bring on Book #3!!!

 Allison & Matt

I paced back and forth, my eyes fixated on the ground trying to suppress the anger building within me. I’d be damned if I was just going to let go of Matt because of what we each were and because others thought our kinds couldn’t be together. I stopped and faced him. “Since when did you ever give up on something you wanted, Matthew Carmichael? You still love me. I still love you. Nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing else matters.”

“I’ve already told you once and I’m going to tell you again – no. Now please get off the property before I call the police.”
Gabriela tried closing the door again but my foot didn’t budge. I stared directly into her eyes. “You will let me into this house,” I commanded, but Gabriela’s eyes didn’t react to my persuasion. I was confused as to what was going on; this had worked on every human I had tried it on. “You will let me in this house.”
I tilted my head in disbelief and Gabriela mockingly tilted her head back at me. I removed my foot from the doorway but had no intention of letting her shut me out. I was going to let her think for the slightest of moments that she had won this argument. I turned to walk away when I heard, “Ali-gator.”
I turned around and as Gabriela was shutting the door asked, “What did you just say?”
Gabriela rattled off something in Spanish before saying, “I didn’t say anything.”
“Yes you did. You whispered ‘Ali-gator.’”
“Um, no I didn’t.” “My husband used to call me that.”
“Okay lady, you’re losing your mind.” She twirled her finger next to her temple as she whistled cuckoo.
If I could have breathed fire I would have in that moment. I charged Gabriela but before I could reach her I felt like I had hit a brick wall. I placed my hands out in front of me but they couldn’t cross the threshold. Gabriela’s smirk irritated me.
“I told you I wouldn’t let you enter,” she taunted and slammed the door.
