Review: Pulse by Kailin Gow

If you've followed TCBL for a while you know that I'm a big fan of Kailin's. I've reviewed three of her other books so far and I've always thoroughly enjoyed each one.

Pulse was no exception to that. Kailin's writing is as usual, fast paced and captivating to me. Pulse's story pulled me in and kept me entertained through the end. It was over before I knew it...which makes me sad.

Overall, it was a great book and a great start to a series in my opinion. I certainly look forward to reading more about Kalina (the main character) and the trio of brothers who make up this whirlwind story.

About The Book:
(from Goodreads)

17 year-old Kalina didn't know her boyfriend was a vampire until the night he died of a freak accident. She didn't know he came from a long line of vampires until the night she was visited by his half-brothers Jaegar and Stuart Greystone. There were a lot of secrets her boyfriend didn't tell her. Now she must discover them in order to keep alive. But having two half-brothers vampires around had just gotten interesting.

Book 1 of 5 in the PULSE vampire series.
Book 2: Life's Blood is out October 2010.
Book 3: Blood Burned is out January 2011.

About The Author:

Kailin Gow is the author of over 40 books, a producer, an internet marketing executive, and a radio talk show host. She is also the founder of Women Who Write and 3As for Autism (Actors, Artists, and Authors for Autism). She is also an adventurer, having traveled all over the world. Some of the more interesting places she's been to has been Dracula's Castle in Transylvania where she was presented with a sketch of Dracula, The Stanley Hotel in Colorado where she saw something quite odd, the lost city of Pompeii where both her cameras were drained of battery, St. Petersburg where she held an hour-long conversation with a Russian soldier who didn't speak English and she didn't speak Russian, and the orphanages of Thailand where Kailin distributed toys to and hugged hundreds of disabled orphans.
