BOOK REVIEW- SURVIVOR (Novella) by Amanda Pillar
Billie Young is a city guard from Pinton with a troubled past – she was kidnapped, tortured and almost murdered by vampires. Though she managed to survive her attack, it’s left her scarred and damaged. Now, she wants revenge.
Vere Radcliffe is a vampire spy who answers directly to the king. Recently returned to the city, he’s stuck living with his family – a fate almost worse than death. But trouble is brewing in the streets of Pinton, and Vere is asked to investigate the abduction of a city guard and the murder of several other humans.
Can Vere and Billie work together to find the killers, before it’s too late? AMAZON 4.5 STARS
I really liked this story. I know it says its a Novella but it felt like a fuller book than that. Of course, I did read it quicker but in the process really ended up liking the main characters a lot. Billie, was a character that was easy for me to admire. Spunky, smart, outspoken, courageous, always trying to win. Vere was a surprise, a pleasant one. He was a "man" of honor, working for justice in his own way.
Now, I'm not saying that its a really deep book but it was enjoyable. Even looking at some of the injuries that Billie had to recover from; those where caused by some serious violence.
Was I happy in the way the story ended? Yes, I was.
