Evelyn Reads The Taste of Her Blood

I found The Taste of Her Blood: A Lesbian Vampire Tale by K.C. Bloom to be precious little find. It reminded me of a classic fairy tale complete with foreboding forests, a hunter, brigands, and some sort of creature.

The similarities end there because the author turns this story on its head! I found the main characters to be believable and fleshed out. Their intimate interactions flow beautifully into the prose such that these scenes compliment the story.

I love the details that were specific to vampirism including the curse inflicted upon those who thirst for blood. I’ve never encountered that twist before and it provided a unique way to drive the story forward.

While a quick read, you’ll find yourself yearning for more. Fortunately, K.C. Bloom has written another story in the same vein!

Perhaps she’d like to borrow my Evelyn for some inspiration?

Evelyn Reads QWERTY

QWERTY by Barbara Avon. The tale a grief stricken writer who inherits a typewriter that makes prose come to life. Is this a recipe for disaster, or the key to his salvation?

QWERTY by Barabra Avon

QWERTY by Barbara Avon

In this novella, the author weaves beautiful prose to make both her characters and the story feel real. The depths of emotion, the doubt, and scenes are all written to draw you in and often do.

This is a quick read that is easily consumed in one setting. Well worth the price of admission for this ride!

Evelyn Reads We Are Mars

We Are Mars, by Cheryl Lawson, is a story of what happens when scientific achievement and exploration meet the grim reality of the Twitter generation, one too distracted to pay attention to what the senior echelon is up to.

This story starts a little over fifty years after the settlement is established and is home to thousands of souls. Here, conditions are deteriorating because supplies from Earth are less bountiful than before.

From there, the author introduces a varied and memorable cast of players. A core group of characters get the spotlight giving you a unique insight into their thoughts and emotions, an aspect that I found to be compelling. As the story develops, alliances are made and broken as tensions reach critical.

Lawson really does an excellent job of mixing in theoretical and emerging science into the story, lending credibility to the tale and giving it an overall authentic feel.

Overall, if you are into series, I’d say that it’s worth reading!

Evelyn Reads Zero Gravity: Anna’s Affair

Zero Gravity: Anna’s Affair by author T.J. Conway is out of this world! This is a story about a lovers in space, and in one case an orgasm aided by a rocket sized vibrator.

It is clear that the author took a lot of time and care to research the subject. For me, that did a lot of lend credibility to the story, which in turn made it a hotter read. While a quick and easy read, this story offers more than just sex scenes. If you were ever curious about having sex in low Earth orbit, then this book is for you!

Highly recommended!
