Vampires, high school, and a love triangle to get your teeth into!
About the book:
Hannah Clark used to be an ordinary girl. She used to be a lot of things. Until she was bitten.
Five months ago, Hannah woke up in the middle of the woods as a vampire. She didn’t know how it happened or who turned her. She just knew she wasn’t safe in her hometown anymore.
Fort Wayne was supposed to be her fresh start. Her chance to finish high school without any other incidents. But then she met Jackson. Their attraction was instant and awakened something deep inside of her. Her thirst for blood.
Things only got worse when her maker, Lucas, came to town. He might have been sexy, but he was one dangerous vampire. And if Hannah wanted to keep Jackson safe, she had to protect him from Lucas’ ravenous ways. Even though she found herself excited by them.
But Lucas wasn’t there for her. Something sinister was happening in town. Vampires were going missing, and if Hannah didn’t want to be next, she had to work with Lucas to solve the mystery. But could she trust him? Or should she trust Jackson? She had to make a choice—and her life might just depend on it.
Review by Katy Haye:
I added My Maker’s Keeper to my Kindle when it was already overflowing and I didn’t, in truth, expect to get around to it any time soon. But then I thought I’d just dip in and see what I thought … and the rest is history!
Firstly, I loved the characters. I know everyone’s probably supposed to pick either Jackson or Lucas (in which case = Jackson), but I really liked Seth, and Emily for that matter. My Maker’s Keeper had a clever, subtle and sideways approach to some of the tropes of high school fiction that have become a bit tired (and a bit incomprehensible to non-Americans, to be frank). Everyone was lively and realistic rather than just being in the novel to fill a role.
I loved Hannah’s attraction to Jackson which was handled really confidently. And then the love triangle when Lucas came on the scene was also very well done. I’m normally shouting at characters to make up their minds and behave themselves, but I didn’t here.
And then there were all the twists where I thought I knew what was going to happen, but what did was slightly different (and better).
You might think there are enough vampires out there already, but I disagree. This is an entertaining addition to the genre.
