#BookReview: Risen (Blood Eternal #1) by Cole Gibsen #Risen #NetGalley

About the Book:

Fans of Vampire Diaries and Twilight will be thirsting for this latest vampire addiction…

My aunt has been kidnapped by vampires, and it’s up to me to save her. Only…I had no idea vampires existed. None. Nada. I’m more of a reader than a fighter, and even though I’d been wishing to escape my boring existence in the middle of nowhere, I’d give anything to have it back now if it meant my aunt was safe. 

Then there’s the vampire Sebastian, who seems slightly nicer than most of the bloodsuckers I’ve run into so far. Yes, he’s the hottest being I’ve ever come across, but there’s no way I can trust him. He swears he’s helping me get answers, but there’s more to his story. Now I’m a key pawn in a raging vampire war, and I need to pick the right ally.

But my chances of surviving this war are slim at best, when the side I choose might be the one that wants me dead the most.

About the Author:
Growing up, Cole Gibsen couldn’t decide what she loved more―dogs or books. Rather than choose, she decided to devote her life to both! Dog trainer (wrangler) by day and author by night, she’s the author of more than ten books with more on the way. www.colegibsen.com

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: This one was full of cliches.

Notes and Opinions: This one could have been a lot better, it started out pretty well but once you got into it the writing just didn't work for me.  It was a very fast read with a little to much action sometimes. (Never thought I would say this). The romance was a little instalovey but not overly done, although it could have been better. For me the story and characters were well in hand but the writing style just lacked what I was looking for.  

Go Into This One Knowing: Cliffhanger
