5 out of 5 stars
The story Vampire State by Alexander Charalambides is a vampire/paranormal book. It is a story that hooked me in from the beginning and didn’t let me go until the final page. The author does an amazing job of world-building and the development of the characters. I loved reading about Rowena. She is smart, independent, and stubborn. She finds herself with a choice to accept “The Gift” and become a “pale” or vampire. The decision has to be made and as time goes by, she finds herself in the company of Vincenzo and Luka. She is drawn to both of them. What path will Rowena choose? What does her future hold? Read this book to find out. The story kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. It is a fast-paced journey that you are taking with twists and turns around every corner. I enjoyed the additional characters that are introduced. Some of them are helpful to Rowena and others have their own agenda. Then there are those who I wondered just what their motivations were. The story is written in such a way that I felt I was right there with the characters. I grew to care about Rowena with each chapter that I read. I have always loved vampire novels and this book is a good example of why. It will have you glued to the pages until you have read the last one. I highly recommend reading it.
