Vendetta is the first instalment in the Amaranthine Blood series by Elise Valente.

Book description:

“The odd scent she’d picked up earlier, combined with this girl’s unnatural speed, suddenly clicked in her mind. Rage flooded her when she realized what it meant.

They've turned her, she thought as she followed the girl into the woods. They turned a child and set her loose to hunt her. Sick.”

When the immortals have an eternity, the games they play become more macabre. It’s Sanaan’s job, and personal mission, to see the game’s masters annihilated. After all, they are the same people who destroyed her life and all her hopes for the future, creating a monster with an obsessive need for revenge.

Vendetta is the first book in Amaranthine Blood series—the tale of a vampire whose only desire is to annihilate the Xul, once and for all. Sanaan thinks she’s got it under control, until the arrival of a stranger finds her precariously balancing on a knife’s edge between change and a descent into darkness. And there’s more going on in the fight than she ever knew—things that could change the course of the world’s fate forever.

When my friend told me about this book I was a bit skeptical, not because I didn't think it wouldn't be good but because I've been staying away from vampire novels. I had read to many of them when I was in my Twilight faze :/. Honestly now I'm very very glad that I gave the book a chance, if I hadn't I would have been really missing out.

Vendetta was definitely different from any other vampire book I have read. As I have previously stated I have read a lot of them! While I read this book I thought it had the Underworld, Moonlight vibe going on, for those of you who have no idea what Moonlight is, its a vampire show that used to play on t.v, it was epic!!. Anyways back to the topic at hand, this book was beautifully written, it was both intriguing, sorrowful and vengefully delightful. Her characters have a way of sneaking into your heart and messing with your emotions. You can not help your self but to love all of her characters, well minus the bad guys, you will automatically hate them!!

You will be so bloodthirsty after reading the first book that you will rush to buy the second one if you haven't already. You will have a craving to know what will take place in the second novel, how the bond between certain characters will forge more depth and how the battle between good and evil will end. Honestly its been a while since  I've actually liked a female vampire in any series who's as spirited as Sanaan. She is so unbelievably epic and so kick ass!! Her mood swings entertains the crap out of me, I laughed so much. I really loved her snarky comments she would make, she is quite the handful that one, but love her never the less.

One of the other iconic characters that you will love or will swoon over is Damon, he's so...I don't even know if there are words to explain how Fangtastic he truly is. There are no words in the universe to explain he's kindness, or his sweetness or his uber sexiness!! You will just melt into a puddle thanks to him hahah.

I give Elise's book five stars, for a world wind of epic vampness!!Don't miss out on this book really read it!!! Look for her second book Insurrection and on that note keep a watch out for the third instalment coming out this year either by the end of March or early April.
