Pierce: A Vampire Series Novella 1 by Jolie du Pre


Pierce:  A Vampire Series

Novella 1
By Jolie du Pre

Alicia Johnson, a 24 year old waitress has a strong fear of Vampires. So much so she refuses to work the night shift. As with any job, we all know how they are, and that there are times when we are needed to cover one another shifts from time to time.

 Alicia whom is already deep in debt compliments of a cheating ex fiance, eventually realizes she needs to take the shift. So she decides to talk her boss into calling a cab, and paying the fare, so at the very least she doesn’t have to deal with the bus system, and will feel safer.

This is a whole new World, the CDC has signs posted everywhere, warning people to beware of vampires, and the humans live in fear of them.

With a crazy Vampire like Bess, whose only desire is to be with Dagon, she will get sloppy and make mistakes. Bess, Dagon and Vince are traveling around determined to make trouble where ever they go. Dagon is a sexy hunk that once everyone sees him, they can't stop looking at him.

This book was fast paced and totally enjoyable. I loved how easily it was to follow along and understand. I also enjoyed the fact the language, though to most may be considered foul and adult, in all honesty, this is how most people speak. I like books that are more real life, and not afraid to act like people truly do, rather than act fake. 

I give this book five stars, because it is realistic, and short and sweet, more for the modern day and age. I like how fast paced it is, and realistic. The book itself, seems more true to life than a lot of books I have read. People like to pretend they talk all prim and proper, when in fact they don’t. Jolie calls them like they are. The same way she speaks! I like that about her! She isn’t afraid to act like someone herself behind a book, the same character she is in real life, portrays through her books. I like that about her! Very open and honest and classy! You need to check this book out, it is an excellent Vampire story that will knock your socks off!

4. Any suggestions to anyone wanting to become a writer?
