Language As Jason Explores Different Cities As He Works For as Jason explores different cities as he works for But there are several occasions where Jason explores an area suspects that something is not uite right Augere then returns home Then he goes out again and does the same thing This happens uite a few times and some of them could easily be edited outYet despite its lengthit feels like could be added I think this novel might have benefited by a antagonist one which could have made Jason and Augere s life difficult We get hints of bad things happening ahead and it would be interesting to see that develop in the future installments I would have liked to see of that develop here particularly towards the end but it looks like that is in store for the seuelsOverall the mystery of Jason and Augere s relationship is the driving force behind the story But the absence of an antagonist also means that their is
too little tension which is sorely missed and could have helped with the length of the novel little tension which is sorely missed and could have helped with the length of the novel started out as a dream job luxurious housing travel use of a high end car and money than he could ever possibly use Jason is curious though when is the actual work supposed to startHis employer Laurent Augere is secretive elusive temperamental and rarely communicates with Jason who is supposed to be his assistant Mr Augere s lawyers only give Jason enough information to eep him uiet and he fairly willing to go along with their answersAt least at first Then things start happening that arouse Jason s curiosity Events happen that are impossible Such as Augere s ability to move faster than Jason s vision can follow and the way others are almost hypnotized by his very presence Jason dismisses them as a trick of the eye or a certain tiredness on his partWhen he can no longer deny the truth he must make a decision that could mean his life This book is a treasure and I don t mean that lightly The author has a gift that is rare the ability to tease the reader along page by page and paragraph by paragraph giving out only enough information to eep the interest super charged without giving anything away The well timed pace is often interrupted by a sudden galloping of drama that is totally unexpectedLaurent Augere is anything but the classical vampire I won t give anything away because he is too fascinating to betray in that manner However it is safe to say that he is a blend of sophistication and innocence vulnerability and viciousness The experiences he has are both poignant and hilarious The part where he is tending to a sick Jason is a great example of thisI have to be honest when I finished this book I felt like the door to a wonderful world was closed to me Now I am one of the growing ranks of readers who is clamoring for the next book in the series to be released. Een the victim of a dangerous and bitter betrayal he loses everything in an attempt to save his life In time he comes to realize that putting his former life back together may not be the easiest or wisest decision Both harrowing and uplifting occurrences continue to divide and reunite the two as their journey becomes a struggle for understanding acceptance and friendship on their own term. A fantastic read This has got to be the best book Ive read all year Far from the usual VampireDracula scenarios this book is all about acceptance of something different It really was a book I couldn t put down I had to read the part where the two leads were separated very uickly cos I so wanted them to be together again such was the mesmerising of them accepting each other Great stuff This book was a real surprise to me I don t normally read vampire books and I was expecting something very different This book is far about the development of the two main characters then it is about the life of a vampire For a long time Jason does not even realise that his mysterious new boss is a vampire The story follows his chance encounter with Aug TantalizingThis is one of those vampire stories that are out of the norm I loved it It has a sense of immortality with a touch of humanism It s not your stereotypical vampire story and the plot was an intense and captivating plot Some things seem impossible but that s the beauty of a story that works even the impossible is probable and lends to great storytelling I look forward to reading the

Sandrine Genier é 9 READFelt it was well depicted The author takes the time to paint a picture of both main characters and I did like this as sometimes books have very two dimensional characters I would definitely recommend this book Disclaimer I received this in exchange for an honest reviewErin s Book Reviews preparation for losing his job and being forced to move back in with his parents Jason Sterling decides to have one last hooray in the culture filled city of New Orleans There he finds himself offered the job of a life time Cars extravagant houses and a pay check that would buy a world supply of chimichangas But the only down side is his creepy boss that seems normal on the surface but after some terrifying events Jason realizes his boss might not be the living variety but that of myths and the undeadSo let me start off by saying how happy I was to get a book that was longer than a few hundred pages I could rant for days about having short books but that would not do this book justiceI was ecstatic to find out that Laurent was not like any of the vampires of today s w I received this copy from the author in exchange for an honest review Thanks "I am so glad I found The Vampire Book 1 by Sandrine Genier I m "am so glad I found The Vampire Book 1 by Sandrine Genier I m going to retell the story here you can read the other reviews for that I just want to say I found the writing to be engaging and immersive I couldn t put The Vampire down and when I was reading it I didn t now what was going on around me in the real world I found myself in Jason s skin I held whatever items he held I saw what he saw
