Review: Thirst: Blood of my Blood by RP Channing @rpchanning

240+ Pages

~ Kira Sutherland ~

After a near fatal accident (and getting cheated on by her 'boyfriend'), and beating up the lead cheerleader (with whom the boyfriend cheated...), and being labeled as having 'issues' in her school because she, uhm, sees ghosts, Kira is left with two choices:

1. Continue her 'therapy' (where she's told the ghost is a hallucination and also gets her legs ogled too often...)


2. Go to Starkfield Academy, a boarding school for "Crazies and Convicts" (as the social media sites call them.)

She chooses the latter...

~ Cory Rand ~

Cory Rand has not had an easy life. His mother died in a car accident when he was twelve, and so did his mother's best friend...sort of. You see, Janice made a promise to take care of Cory just before she died, and so she lingers. Undead. A ghost that watches out for him.

Brought up in an abusive home, Cory quickly falls into a life of disreputable behavior. After his third offense (which was prompted by a girl, as usual - he has a weakness) he's left with two choices:

1. Be tried as an adult and share a cell with a guy named Bubba (he thinks...)


2. Go to Starkfield Academy, which Cory is pretty sure is run by vampires. But, hey, at least he'll get an education.

He chooses the latter...

It's at Starkfield that Kira meets Cory Rand, a boy with an insatiable Rage who sees ghosts, too. As well as other things, other things from his past, things that confuse him, things like fire and witches and demons.

Things he's always ignored.

Until now.

At first I didn't mean to read the book. I don't have enough time for anything these days so I agreed to make book spotlight post about it. At leas, I can always do that. But then, I downloaded sample from Amazon. It's really wired cause I don't do that. Like ever. And I had to know what happened next so I ended up asking for the book and read it in three days :)
I mostly read it on my work (shhhss don't tell my boss) and managed it to finish fast.
Book is not so big and it's fast paced so if you are fast reader you'll just fly thru it.
The story was mysterious almost till the weary end. It was luring me to know more and more, to cast the light on the dark parts in my mind and to finally brighten the story.
From the beginning we know that Kira and Cory are destined to be together but we don't know why and it was interesting to reveal how they were part of history six hundred years long. 
They end up in the same private school where strange things begin to happen. 
I will leave this review spoiler free so it will be short, but in the end I'm giving it four star review cause it was fast, interesting and light read but I felt that some parts were a bit rushed and needed an extra work on it.

Oh, and I do like Brenda a lot ;)

Author Bio

R P Channing started writing three years ago, but never published anything even after churning out over a million words of fiction. Thirst: Blood of my Blood is the first book he dared to publish. When asked why, he said, “Because it’s the first thing I wrote that my wife actually enjoyed reading.” When not hammering away (most literally) at his keyboard, he can be found buried in a book, reading anything from romance to horror to young adult to non-fiction to comedy.
