For Lily Drake, slaying vampires is easy...
Dating them is the hard part.
Lily Drake is your everyday hard-working single mom…until a gorgeous vampire shows up on her front door who she mistakenly assumes is her blind date for the evening. As one crazy scenario after another unfolds, Lily finds herself falling in love with two vampires, slaying the evil ones, and being prophesied as the savior of the entire undead race.
Deciding between pizza and Chinese take-out will no longer be one of the hard decisions facing Lily Drake once she is immersed into vampire society. Humanity or immortality? That doesn't hold a candle against this question - which of the two handsome vampire cousins?
The Life and Death of Lily Drake is not your typical vampire love story. It’s a tale about the humorous mistakes a woman makes simply trying to survive not only life, but the dating scene. How will Lily manage working full-time, taking care of her young son and fighting the undead at every turn?
Lily will have to figure it out, but who better to save the world than a mom?
First I would like to Thank Author T. Michelle Nelson and Inkspell Publishing for allowing me to review the Life & Death of Lily Drake and be apart of this amazing book tour!
Now onto the review, Lily Drake is just trying to live her life with her son, she is divorced, working as a graphic designer and has a annoying yet amazing friend that pushes her to go out on blind dates as she thinks it time that Lily goes out and starts dating again. However, one night Lily’s “date” ends up being someone completely different, someone not human…and this is where the fun begins…
Though the beginning seems uninteresting once you get past the first few pages and get to the scene where Mathias reveals to Lily who he is, is when the interest will spike. I rather liked Lily’s character, the Author did a great job in creating the personality for Lily as it was believable though I do have to say Lily was rather stubborn and sometimes I got annoyed by her, but that is what made it great for me, because everything she did was something I could picture someone actually doing. Mathias and Valentine were swoon worthy, the description of them that the Author gives them leave the reader absolutely entranced by them along side of Lily…sadly they are works of fiction.
The overall plot of the story was interesting and kept me locked in the pages, though vampires are a widely loved and overdone genre right now, I found this one “a breathe of fresh air” to be exact. Though the ending does seem as if there is possibility for a sequel, I am unsure since I have no heard any news as of yet, but if there is I look forward to seeing how much more the Author will develop the characters and the next obstacle that will arise in their path. This is definitely a book that is more intended for a mature crowd, in my belief at least because of the content in this book, such as language and sexual content this wouldn’t be suitable for younger readers under the age of 17. Mature YA and Adult Audience suggested.
I give 5/5 bats to Lily Drake!
