Yes, I m the author of the Eternal Hunger series I had a great deal of fun writing this series because it is very loosely based on one of my favourite books of all time, Bram Stoker s Dracula See if you can pick the parallels the names are a dead give away I couldn t help being a bit snide with the character of Jasmina because Mina is so sickeningly perfect in the original.The series also delves into some heavy issues such as greed and poverty which I believe are very relevant in this post GFC world My vampires might glow a bit in the dark but they are not sparkly, and although this is a love story, it s not erotic vampire fiction.Everything I write tends to have a political edge to it, even when I set out to avoid this, because it s so much a part of who I am If you want to find out about my motivations for writing this series you can visit my blog, particularly my review of the vampire film Daybreakers.http francenecarroll13.blogspot.comI d love to hear your feedback on any aspect of the series.Fran I had the pleasure of reading Eternal Hunger, a novella from Francene Carrol The novella is a set of 5 mini stories based around the main character Lucia, a girl who in the first story is set to be married This is a vampire novel of sorts but is a little different from most other vampire novels that I have read I was immediately drawn in from the first chapter because let s face it, who doesn t love a bad boy Drake The plot was interesting and the characters were likeable This novella takes the reader on a very detailed adventure and explores worlds that Lucia has never experienced Ms Carroll has a vivid imagination and has a great way of putting the words together to create a fabulous experience for the reader This book has a great mix of romance, suspense, and thrills. It was so bad I sort of enjoyed myself, but it got to a point that it just got so bad I could not finish it All it needed were sparkles. Even though there seem to be quite a few typos throughout the book, it kept me interested and had a good ending. Just ok I ll admit it I am a vampire book virgin I haven t even read Twilight or gone to see any of the movies, and the last time I tried to read Dracula I gave up after only a few chapters Something about vampires creep me out and no matter how many sparkly new incantations they make, I still don t take a shine My cherry was popped with Francene Carroll s book Eternal Hunger Eternal Hunger starts out simply enough Lucia is out celebrating her bachelorette party when a sexy stranger asks her to dance and bites her on the neck Lucia is initially horrified with the amorality of the vampire life and vows to stay a human Her struggle to defend her position becomes increasingly difficult as it becomes clear she doesn t love her husband, she hates her dead end job, and she has no desire of living happily ever after in the burbs with two kids It is this struggle and the rest of the human struggles about our choices in life that give this book its heart and soul When Lucia gives into the allure of absolute freedom and becomes a vampire she is immediately filled with regret Much like the way anyone feels when a dream doesn t go their way Banal amorality is fun to watch, but being a willing perpetrator of monetary manipulation, murder, and oppression is too much for Lucia and she fights to regain her humanity and a new life ruled by her own will It is an interesting struggle to watch even when Lucia is portrayed realistically wayward and irritating.If you pick up this book looking for a new story with glittering, active prose then put it down and move on If you are looking for a feel good romance, with a vampire flair to spice up your afternoon on the beach this spring break then this is your book Don t expect a new twist or a love story akin to Romeo and Juliet but have fun, be entertained, enjoy a cute love story, and think a little bit about your happiness and freedom.
