K.A. Poe's Nevermore Series

I won the first two books of K.A. Poe's Nevermore series from LibraryThing.

Seventeen year old Alexis finds herself on the eve of her eighteenth birthday. What generally means a step into adulthood instead opens its way to a terrifying truth about not only her family, but herself. She comes from a long line of vampire hunters, and her real dad wants her to carry on the family quest.  

At the same time, she is falling for a new boy at school who has his own secret. He is a vampire. 

Alexis is forced to make a decision from which there is no turning back – Will she deny this newly discovered heritage, or embrace it?

Available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

My Review
Twin Souls by K.A. Poe
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The narration is reminiscent of the Casts; this series may have strong appeal to fans of the House of Night series.

Alexis has come a long way since learning the truth about her vampire hunting lineage. If becoming a hunter wasn't bad enough, she discovered that she possessed a gift few hunters have ever been blessed with. The gift of the raven. But is this a gift or a curse?

When a mysterious new girl starts hanging around Alexis' friends and lurking around town, Alex suspects the worst. Is Claire more than she seems? One thing is certain, Alex needs to learn to control her new ability in order to make sure the ones she loves stay safe.

Available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble

My Review
Hybrid by K.A. Poe
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The first book in this series reminded me of the House of Night series by the Casts. The second book has a little more Twilight thrown in, while still being its own unique story.

The concept of the Raven-Hunter is cool - I haven't seen it a hundred times - but the romance throws me off (I'm not a romantic person).

This book ends with a very strong lead-in to third book in the series.

I received a free copy in exchange for review.
