The Blood That Bonds - Buecheler, Christopher
The Blood That Bonds is the first book in the II AM Trilogy. Please ignore the terrible cover art on this book. The writing is much better than the cover would imply. My apologies to the illustrator, but that kind of image does nothing to attract me. This book is free. That's what attracted me, and it's a book I really enjoyed. Two Ashley Majors was known as Ashley for her first 14 years. Then she decided that Two fit her better. She split from home when she was 16 and hustled pool for a while. Then one night she was mugged and her life changed forever. Theroen is a vampire. He recognized Two as a good person trapped in a bad situation. Theroen "rescued" Two from a life she didn't want and couldn't escape. Some vampires you can love. Others you hate. Two deals with it in interesting ways. I look forward to reading the second book in this series, even if I have to pay for it. Highly recommended.
