Synopsis

VAMPIRESS RISING (Born to Blood – Part 1)
Alyson used to think that vampires were almost human; that is, until she became one. Finally consenting to be lovingly turned by her boyfriend Mattie, Allie has come to possess traits and powers previously unknown among vampire kind. Now Allie seeks the help of the elder vampire Cain, to discover not only what she is capable of, but why.

***Melanie – #NerdGirlVamp’s  Review***
This is the first novella in book 2  of the Almost Human series by author Melanie Nowak and unlike the previous novella installments new readers could jump in here if they so desired.

I was THRILLED to get an ARC of this installment.  With the start of book 2 the characters are still the same but the focus has shifted so new readers I feel would be able to pick this series up here and enjoy without reading the previous book (set of novellas) in the series.  That being said I personally would recommend starting from the beginning just because the series is so excellent!

There is a fair amount of new world building in this installment, which is completely necessary for the story, but just took the edge off the 5 stars of the previous installment for me.  S o to be fair (and so my review fans know that I do rate each and every book in their own rights) I dropped half a star.  Don’t let that discourage you though as it still round up to a five and is by far my favorite vampires series this year.   My advice- start out with book 1 while you wait for this release ;)

4/12 out of 5 stars – and I can’t wait for part 2 of which I am excited to see there are 12 ….. TWELVE installments!!! *Grabby hands**
