A mysterious disease is encroaching on the human race, creating new vampiric hybrids. With a ban on reproduction, anyone giving birth to the new blue-skinned babies must hand over their offspring to the Government – or face dire consequences. For Freya, keeping her brother hidden is the only real option.
Billed as ‘A Vampire Dystopian Thriller’, this is the first book in the Blue Skin series and introduces us to a world where the only babies born are a mysterious breed of vampires. The premise is one I’ve seen before, though the idea is handled well and I liked the characters, especially the relationship between Freya and Sean. The cliff-hanger type ending isn’t my favourite tactic, as it forces the reader to read the next book to find out what happens – however, it’s good story and will appeal to lovers of modern-day vampires and the likely scenarios if the powers-that-be should ever have to face such a phenomenon.
