The Descendant by Kelley Grealis

Goodreads Description:

Allison Carmichael wakes from a car wreck with no memory of the past three years. She doesn’t recall her husband’s death or how she alienated her friends, and she definitely doesn’t remember anything about her new boyfriend Vincent Drake – a charismatic man with a penchant for rare and unique possessions. In fact, the only things familiar to Allison are her seemingly common ailments – insomnia, lack of appetite, erratic body temperature – which have gone undiagnosed and are worsening. 

But Vincent knows exactly who, and what, Allison is – a mortal descendant of the first vampire. He is a vampire who has watched over Allison and her ancestors since the biblical times of Cain and Abel ensuring their secret is kept. Once he realizes Allison’s symptoms are accelerating and transforming her, he’ll stop at nothing to have her.

Allison discovers that she is a descendant and the first of her kind to exhibit signs of vampirism. She must decide between risking her mortal death if she cannot control her symptoms or fully transforming into a vampire and damning her soul for eternity. A decision made even more difficult when Allison discovers that Vincent has manipulated her life, and everyone in it, so that he can have the one thing no one else in the world has – the first descendant-turned-vampire.

THE DESCENDANT – A Vampire Tale of Biblical Proportions

Mary's Review:

I received this book from the author for a review.  Thank you Kelley for the book.

Best part of the book:  I enjoyed Allison's character very much.  Even though all this was happening to her she was able to process it with an adult perspective.  There was even (at times) that her humor broke up the tension.  I loved the Biblical part of the book.  To entwine the Bible and vampires made for a very interesting story line.  I enjoy story lines like this and Kelley did a very good job with it.  I have love/hate for Vincent.  Which means, I love to hate him!  His evil ways to creating this "world" for Allison.

Not so great about the book:  There is nothing that really sticks out that I didn't like about the book.  It flowed well and the story line was interesting.  The fight scenes were good, also.  Overall, this was a good book.
