A Review of 'Vampire's Trill' by Lorelei Bell


Here is my very first book review!  I told you I'm a late bloomer...

Seriously folks, I truly enjoyed Lorelei's books - the first one I won, the second I bought - and am looking forward to reading more of Sabrina Strong's adventures. Without further ado...

    'Vampire's Trill' continues where 'Vampire Ascending' leaves off, but fear not, you need not have read the first book to follow the plot and understand what's at stake (pardon the pun) in Sabrina' s life -- though I highly recommend it.   'Vampire Ascending' was an exciting and fun read from beginning to end, and this book is no different.

    What's it like to be Sabrina Strong?  She's one tough cookie.   She's struggled all her life against the world's stereotypes of her -- you see, she's a Touch Clairvoyant -- but the predicament she finds herself in 'Vampire's Trill' really raises the bar.   And for someone who can't even get a date, Sabrina is awfully popular these days.  Everyone wants her, but why?   There's Bjorn Tremayne the handsome master Vampire who first hired Sabrina to uncover some nefarious goings-on in his organization, but who now desperately needs help of his own, and Vasyl, the Rogue Vampire who has been unknowingly lurking in Sabrina's life but will soon reveal his true intentions.  Sabrina finds that the fate of the world is in her hands.  Is she the sybil Bjorn's enemies fear?  The mystery deepens -- no one's life is safe from danger  -- and there's plenty of romance too, as the once untouchable Sabrina is suddenly in hot demand. 

    Lorelei Bell makes the incredible, credible - a mark of a great story teller - and what a world she's created:  Vampires, Shape Shifters, and Werewolves as they cohabitate with the human race, and sometimes it's difficult to tell who is the most  inhuman. 

    In short, 'Vampire's Trill' is fun, exciting and entertaining, filled with mysterious twists as Sabrina uncovers the evil plot afoot.  I am not into Vampire fiction as a rule, but Lorelei  Bell has made a believer out of me.  I love Lorelei's blend of mystery, romance and humor and most important, her inventiveness.  She has fashioned an incredible, fresh new world.  I can't wait for the next installment in the Sabrina Strong series.
