Two friends decide to leave the big city and move to a small town–they are going to buy a Bed and Breakfast. They know it won’t be easy–but they both need a change of pace-so off they go to Blue Harbor, a small town in Maine.
Most small towns have their secrets but this one–yikes!! It doesn’t take long for Elizabeth and Scarlett to get involved in the curse of the town. They also meet some guys who they fall for immediately–well almost immediately. The sheriff in the town is always picking on them for no other reason than they are newcomers! They also happen to be where people are dying or disappearing–and there are a lot of them.
They do buy the Bed and Breakfast and all is going very well there—-until it doesn’t.
Just what is this curse–and who is the one who is causing it? Read this novel to find out! Lots of twists and turns and I found it a very fast and interesting read.
Author Susanne Leist weaves her magic in a story with all the elements to claim readers as her fan, enthralling them. Good and evil vampires battling for domination in Oasis.
Todd, a hybrid, born of a human and vampire love match, has a particular set of rules to follow. Linda, a girl from New York, has a traditional innocent who is ill prepare for the obstacles before her. Is the happy ending she craves outside of her reality? Early on in the meeting between the two, Linda and Todd, each fanned the embers of possibilities.
Taking a deep breath, she dashed to the boardwalk and banged headfirst into a hard chest. “Are you okay?” Todd steadied her, his hands grasping her shoulders. “I saw a shadow.” Linda gulped. “It was nothing.” “Let me walk you home.” As Linda strolled beside him to the boardwalk steps leading to the apartments, she glanced at his brooding face. “It’s quieter than usual this evening.” He took her hand as they descended the staircase. “Next time you work late, call me, and I’ll walk you home.” Her hand tingling from his touch, she nodded.
Author Leist develops this diverse cast of characters and their relationships masterfully. The story is engaging in every way if you are a fantasy fan. After reading The Dead Game, you may find yourself believing that vampires, hybrids, and humans coexist in your own town. Each page builds the story to the non-stop suspense ending that you won’t see coming. Recommended for young adults who adore fascinating stories. I added Book 2 to my reading list.
