Review/Giveaway of Dhampyr Heritage by E.G. Gaddess (CONTEST CLOSED)
Posted by cynthiashepp
***CONTEST CLOSED***WINNER: CHRISTINA REVELS***
Dhampyr Heritage is a old-school vampire book. These vampires are not the sexy and sweet ones that you find in novels these days. They are evil. This is also a YA book. It is set in the early 1900’s. It starts with Christian and Gideon as young boys of around 12. Christian has a secret to share with Gideon, a secret that he is not supposed to tell anyone. He tells Gideon because they are best friends and share everything, and tells him to meet him out by the pear tree. This is no juvenile secret though, as it has dire consequences. Gideon witnesses Christian being turned into vampire. In an effort to keep Gideon safe and twart the rumors that Gideon had something to do with Christians death, his family sends him away to his grandmothers.
Fast forward four years and the vampires have found Gideon. Gideon realizes that his family has known all along that vampires exist. His family is actually a family of vampire hunters! Deciding to journey home, Gideon meets a girl, Zola, on the boat that takes him home. Zola has many secrets of her own. (I know something you don’t know!) 🙂 Once home, Gideon realizes that Christian is indeed a vampire, and that he still looks twelve years old. Christian is trying to fight his vampire nature and it is an eternal struggle.
The book centers around a variety of secrets, lies and danger. Gideon is on a journey that no teenage boy should ever have to go through. At times funny and sweet, with a clean YA budding romance, it also has the added edge of page-turning anticpation to know what is going to happen next.. This is a new twist on vampires and is very well-written. I really enjoyed this book even though it is not my usual type of book. I prefer more modern books but this made me think I should give more books like this a chance. I give this book 4 stars!
Quotes from the Book:
“A man. A powerful man. He is going to share his power with me, and then I will share it with you.”
“Never be ashamed of those tears. To feel sorrow at another’s pain or death is not a weakness. What is weak is to let it pull you into your own despair. There is always hope. Remember that.”
“Because, yes, being with Zola made him feel like he could toss a pear core clear across the meadow and beyond.”
