Blog Tour: My POV of Blood Born by Jamie Manning & Giveaway!!

Hardcover, 360 pages
Expected publication: April 24th 2012 by Pendrell Publishing
 Waking up in a coffin hungry for blood is only the beginning for sixteen-year-old Ava Blue. When Chance Caldon, the hottie who dug her up, tells her that she’s half vampire, Ava’s world really turns upside down.

Half vamp? Ava can’t believe it...she doesn't even know what that means! Not until Aldric, a thousand-year-old vampire, shows up and tells her it’s true--and that he’s the one who turned her. Then Ava truly begins to believe what she is. Now, she has to deal with a sudden and powerful bloodlust, the desire to see Aldric dead, and her growing crush for Chance. Ava knows she's a monster now, she can feel it; and her life is over.

But redemption isn’t lost. Aldric is giving her a chance to regain her humanity. The price? Kill a hundred vampires, or remain a bloodsucker forever.

So Ava sets out to get her life back. But killing vampires begins a battle that could destroy everything she is working toward. In the end, Ava's decisions will forever change her life and the lives of those she loves.--Goodreads


Ok this book left me hanging so bad. I have to see what happens next!

Blood Born has it's own unique take on Vampires. One that is more humanizing that others (that I've read) in the fact the they can go out during the day under sunlight(no sparkling;) and they live out in the open with the rest of humanity within communities (well some). Other than that we don't get too much more information about the vampires in this book. No history, no back ground, and no structure. But, what we do get is Ava and her journey to discover what she is. Because she is no ordinary vampire. She is a hybrid.

Avaline "Ava" Blue has awoken into a whole new world that she knows nothing about without any memory of who she was before which leaves her with a million question. Questions that can not and will not be answered right away as she would like. Thankfully she has someone to help her. Chance Caldon. The boy who dug her out of her grave. A human with a mysterious background and a more secretive ability. These two have great chemistry but the tension between them is pulled so tight at times it's nerve wrecking. As time goes on and they become more than just friends things take a turn for the worst. Vampires attack and take Chance hostage. Then Ava is left to make the hardest decision of her whole existence.

Full of adrenaline packed action and mystery this book left me with so many questions and such a powerful desire to find out what happens next that I was literately speechless for about an hour. I was trying to figure out if I should beg Jamie to give me a hint as to what happens next. But I took a walk and calmed down. That is when I came to the realizations that of course he will tell me nothing and SADLY I will just have to wait until next year for the next book..uuuhhgg! This was one of my most exciting reads so far this year.
