Blog Spot…Reign of Blood by Alexia Purdy Day 4

Reign of Blood Blog Tour Spot May 28-31

 Okay, I was not able to get the entire book read for a review before the blog tour ends; however here is my Review Preview…..

Alexia Purdy has an amazing way of writing where you feel right in the middle of the world she describes.  This read is creepy yet draws you in at the same time.  I am pleasantly surprised with it and not disappointed thus far.  I look forward to finishing it to give a full review.  At this rate it is looking to have a 4-5 out of 5 star rating. 

So, while you wait a few days on my review check below for the blurb and excerpts as well as more info on the author and how to connect to her.

Up for grabs:  Swag Packs and one lucky winner will get an E-Copy.
What do you have to do?  Comment on all four of the days (include your email in your post) and head over and “like” The Reign of Blood series on facebook.  Here is the link:
Good Luck and Happy Reading.

Thank you Alexia Purdy for allowing me to take part in your blog tour as well as an awesome read (can’t wait to finish to give a full review).

Blog Spot...Reign of Blood by Alexia Purdy Day 3

Reign of Blood Blog Tour Spot May 28-31 
"Never tease anything that wants to eat you. My name is April Tate and my blood is the new gold. Vampires and hybrids have overrun my world, once vibrant with life, but now a graveyard of death shrouded in shadows. I fight to survive; I fight for my mother and brother. The journey is full of turns that I am quite unprepared for. And I'm just hoping to make it to the next Vegas sunrise..."

In a post-apocalyptic world, a viral epidemic has wiped out most of the earth’s population, leaving behind few humans but untold numbers of mutated vampires. April is a seventeen-year-old girl who lives in the remains of Las Vegas one year after the outbreak. She has become a ferocious vampire killer and after her family is abducted, she goes searching for them. What she finds is a new breed of vampire, unlike any she has seen before. Unsure of whom she can trust, she discovers that her view of the world is not as black and white as she once thought, and she's willing to bend the rules to rescue her family. But in trying to save them, she may only succeed in bringing her fragile world crashing down around her.

Excerpt #3
I rounded the corner and came to dead stop. Before me stood a woman, dirtied and with wild hair. Her face was streaked with grime and rips ran through her clothing. Blood had dried in dark red and brown splats on her shirt and pants and the large Rambo-like knife that she fingered in front of me. She was ready to pounce, slowly shifting on her legs as she narrowed her eyes at me. Sucking in my breath, I instinctively reached for one of the machetes strapped to my side.

I was too slow.

Excerpt #2
My eyes fell on one thing that I had not noticed before. The driver’s side door was slightly cracked open. My stomach lurched for a moment as I slowly stepped around the front of the van to look at the door. A smear of blood ran along the handle and up to the edge of the window. A bloody handprint of dark brick red in color, painted the center of the door. I gasped as my heart jumped, immediately drawing my machete out. I crouched against the van as my eyes darted around, looking for anything that would lead me to where they were. I searched the ground for blood trails but none could be found. If scavengers were out here too, they could have snatched them and I’d have been none the wiser. Not that I had seen any for almost a year.

 Check back for Day 3 tomorrow!
