Exsanguinate Book Review


Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

 
I have a new Horror/Urban Fantasy/Science Fiction type book to share with you today called Exsanguinate, Book 1 - World of Blood written by Killion Slade.
 
Synopsis:
They can’t touch you. What could possibly go wrong at Orlando’s beloved Global Studios Halloween Scream Nights theme park? Cheyenne O’Cuinn’s task is to study fear even though she is the biggest chicken on the planet. In order to carve out a slice of the billion dollar scare industry for her online role-play company, she researches what causes people to run screaming out of haunted attractions.

Determined to face her own fear of Oldhouseophobia, Cheyenne confronts her bloodcurdling obsession - the dreaded haunted house. Her worst nightmare manifested, Cheyenne is brutally attacked and left for dead by a rogue vampire. Splattered across the front page of the Orlando Sentinel, Cheyenne discovers her sisters are missing while she recovers in the hospital.

The ransom call from the kidnapper sets into motion the rabbit hole of a parallel supernatural reality she invades to rescue her family. In a race against the hourglass, Cheyenne confronts a double-agent vampire, a cyberchondriac werewolf, and a mafioso dragon. Can they be trusted to help her, or are they a part of the twisted scheme?

With her sister’s lives on the line, Cheyenne has no choice but to beat the kidnappers at their own game and ensnare them with her own brand of deception. 
Well, I have to say, this one goes beyond what I normally read as YA Fantasy/Paranormal. It is a little bit graphic so if you are squeamish, you might not like this book, but if you aren't, it's definitely entertaining. The writer has quite an imagination and you will not look at vampires the same after reading this book.
 
They have abilities and new traits that I haven't seen in movies, TV or other books but they also are lacking in a few that I thought that they could do also. So, it's different in that respect. Also, you will be introduced to some of the sister's friends who they did not know where werewolves and dragons. There is also a group of other vampires I had never heard about and a new type of demon that one of Cheyenne's sister becomes.
 
If you like a lot of action, lots of scary creatures and the things that go bump in the night, then this book is definitely for you! You won't get bored that's for sure. Every page gives you something to look forward to and I am just glad that none of this is real or I would be scared to death to go outside!
 
Happy Reading!
