I'm back!! and R.I.P. Peril - Book two

Book Two in the Peril-The First in the R.I.P. Challenge!! I chose "The Becoming" by Jeanne C. Stein because it is about vampires, one of my favorite creepy subjects. The main character in this book is Anna Strong, and she is very similar to Laurel K. Hamilton's Anita Blake in that she is a tough, scrappy woman doing a job most would think was a men-only thing. Anna is a bounty hunter and is "turned" by a rogue vampire during a capture that went very wrong. The world Anna lives in is like ours in that everyone believes that vampires are not real, so it takes some adventures and more mishaps to convince her of her new nature.


All said, I enjoyed this book - very fun to read and I am sure there are more to come with Anna Strong as the protagonist. I recommend it for pre-Halloween-get-ready-for-vampires-and-things-that-go-bump-in-the-night reading! On to book three.....

Hey Becky -

I'm so glad you're feeling better, and that you loved the books so much. Since you brought up the subject of vampires, I have to ask: have you read the Twilight series? What did you think, if so?

Happy Autumn!

Becky, saw your post via the RIP III Reading Challenge. It sounds like a book I would probably like. I'm now reading the Mothman Chronicles and The Rest Falls Away. I'm also a quilter!

I love all things Vampire. I STILL am in mourning that Buffy and Angel are no longer on TV. I'll have to check these out.
