#CQWeek2017: Dawn of the Vie (Immortal Aliens #1) by @DiamondLB #Giveaway #BookReview @CuriosityQuills

Welcome to this year's #CQWeek were so excited to share these titles with you!  Here is the first review for this week! We love this cover and the story was solid!  Check it out and don't forget to enter the giveaway and come back later for more! 


 
Since their Arrival, immortal alien Vie rule the planet. Enslaved humans are their servants, entertainment, and food. Anemies—humans with various types of anemia—are exterminated. Their nutritionally deficient blood is useless to the Vie. Or so it’s thought…

Alex, an Elite Vie, is part scientist, part Raid Specialist, and part drug addict. He knows Anemie blood is valuable—as a drug. Rather than blindly carrying out his boss’s kill order, he spares a few Anemies, not only for study, but also for his own private stock.

The more Anemie blood Alex drinks, the more he slips into delusion, and the more his double life threatens to crumble. But quitting Anemie blood is not an option. There’s no rehab for his condition.

When Alex tastes Justin’s blood, his hallucinations bleed into reality…

Anemie Justin knows he’s living past his expiration date. It becomes a guarantee when he’s bitten by Alex during a raid and infected with the Vie’s toxin. Alex adds insult to injury by promising Justin a second chance—a cure if he agrees to be a lab rat. And a mule…of his own blood.

The only leverage Justin has is a stake and a serious lack of self-preservation.

GAME ON.

This one was really good I haven't read anything about aliens in a while and well this one with its gorgeous cover fit that bill just fine. I liked how the alien's in this one would be closely considered vampires as they live off the blood of humans. It was interesting to see how these creatures blended together and the author did an amazing job!  I would have loved to see more world building in this one as all we really get is bits and pieces through the story.  The characters were great and fully formed.  I really liked that this one really makes you ask the question who is the real monster?
