Blood Memories by Barb Hendee

Blood Memories (Vampire Memories, #1) Blood Memories by Barb Hendee

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Eleisha Clevon has the face of a teen angel, but she is no angel. Unlike most vampires, she doesn't like to kill, but self-preservation comes first.

When an old friend destroys himself by walking into sunlight right in front of her, Eleisha is shocked. And what she finds afterward points to how very sick of his existence her friend had become--piling drained corpses in the basement and keeping records of other vampires' real names and addresses. That's a problem.

Because now, there are policemen on the case: two very special humans with some gifts of their own. They know who Eleisha is, and, even more dangerous, what she is.

Blood Memories is the first book in the first book in the Vampire Memories series by Barb Hendee.Blood Memories is an amazing book. Once I started this book, I was hooked. Blood Memories is about a female vampire named Eleisha Clevon who has been around since the mid-nineteenth century. She was turned into a vampire by another vampie named Julian, who wanted her to take care of his crazed father, William Ashton. Julian turned his father, thinking the change would make him sane again. Then the following day he turned Elisha so she can take care of William for all eternity.
Julian didn't teach Elisha or William the way of life of vampires, he just sent them on their way for them to take care of themselves. More than 150 years later, Elisha still survives, still caring for her charge William but is suddenly thrust into danger. Things turn upside down for Elisha and she is pushed to new territory with new allies.

Personally, I loved this book. I love the characters and the plot. If I had to pick a favorite besides Elisha, I'd have to pick Phillip. He's strong headed and old fashioned but has great potential. I am a huge fan of this series, I'm currently reading the next book, Hunting Memories and I'm loving that as well.
Barb Hendee knows how to write a great story. The story is compelling and fast paced. If your a fan of Urban Fantsay and a bit of Dark Fantasy/Paranormal Romance you have to read this book! It's now in my top 10 books ever!
