Review: Vampire Seeker (Samantha Carter #1) by Tim O'Rourke + Giveaway [INT]

Thrilling, exhilarating and exciting
Title: Vampire Seeker
Series: Samantha Carter
Author: Tim O’Rourke
Publisher: Piatkus Books, UK  
My ratings: 5 out of 5 stars
Releases: 16th January, 2014
When offered the opportunity to try out Tim O’Rourke’s Vampire Seeker, I was reluctant as I have not read any male writers who have done this genre justice. I’m pleased to say that Tim proved me wrong many times over.

Samantha Carter is your regular student in London who is convinced that the recent vicious murders occurring in Whitechapel are the doings of a vampire and not some crazy criminal. Convinced of her theory, she follows the perpetrator into the London subway only to be ambushed and wakes up in 1888 Wild West America. There she meets a bunch of ‘vampire hunters’ and before she knows it, she is travelling with them, hunting and having an adventure of a life time.

I really really enjoyed Vampire Seeker. It was such an unexpected find for me that it brought back my mojo in reading. It was exhilarating and exciting. There was romance in the air with the mysterious Harry and the other fellow vampire hunters were such an enigmatic bunch. There were many mysteries to be uncovered and throughout book and I could not predict what was going to happen next.

It kept me on the edge of my seat and made me keep turning the pages late into the night. The world building was spot on and Samantha was a character that I could root for. Her bevy of companions had their own side stories and I adored the breath-taking imagery and action.

Just a warning; Vampire Seeker is an adult read and it has scenes unsuitable for a younger audience. Needless to say, I loved watching Sam and Harry turn circles around each other.

Rest assured Tim O’Rourke has found a new fan in me and after writing this review I’ll be running off to read Vampire Watchmen as I simple cannot wait.
