BLOG TOUR (Review) - Legally Undead (Vampirarchy #1) by Margo Bond Collins

The Book
Release Date: 27 May 2014
Goodreads Link

A reluctant vampire hunter, stalking New York City as only a scorned bride can.

Elle Dupree has her life all figured out: first a wedding, then her Ph.D., then swank faculty parties where she’ll serve wine and cheese and introduce people to her husband the lawyer.

But those plans disintegrate when she walks in on a vampire sucking the blood from her fiancĂ©, Greg. Horrified, she screams and runs—not away from the vampire, but toward it, brandishing a wooden letter opener.

As she slams the improvised stake into the vampire’s heart, a team of black-clad men bursts into the apartment. Turning to face them, Elle realizes Greg’s body is gone—and her perfect life falls apart.

My Opinion  3 STARS

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is a book where the vampires really are the bad guys and they keep to the same idea that we are used to. They come out at night, they drink blood, their dead and they can be killed by stake or beheading.

Elle is a strong funny character and the action happens for her right from the beginning. Her fiancé is killed and turned in front of her before vampire hunters come and clear up.

Of course our girl gets herself mixed up and right up with the action endangering another civilian who is an almost new boyfriend.

This is more of a vampire action novel than a romance novel. No sparks fly, there is no sexual tension, you just wonder if or when its going to happen and with whom.

The ending with Malcolm just seemed added in and added nothing, unless it was just a release. It just seemed pointless and thrown in.

Otherwise it was a good vampire hunting novel.
