Reign of Blood by Alexia Purdy

"Never tease anything that wants to eat you. My name is April Tate and my blood is the new gold. Vampires and hybrids have overrun my world, once vibrant with life, but now a graveyard of death shrouded in shadows. I fight to survive; I fight for my mother and brother. The journey is full of turns that I am quite unprepared for. And I'm just hoping to make it to the next Vegas sunrise..."

In a post-apocalyptic world, a viral epidemic has wiped out most of the earth’s population, leaving behind few humans but untold numbers of mutated vampires. April is a seventeen-year-old girl who lives in the remains of Las Vegas one year after the outbreak. She has become a ferocious vampire killer and after her family is abducted, she goes searching for them. What she finds is a new breed of vampire, unlike any she has seen before. Unsure of whom she can trust, she discovers that her view of the world is not as black and white as she once thought, and she's willing to bend the rules to rescue her family. But in trying to save them, she may only succeed in bringing her fragile world crashing down around her.

My Review

 April Tate lives in a post-apocalyptic world, a viral epidemic. It has killed most people, she only knows that her mother and brother are left. Once in awhile they have to go to Las Vegas to what ever they need. During one of these trips her mother and younger brother get taken. She search for them but has to return before the sun sets. She spends a few more days looking for them, but comes up empty handed. She has no clue what she is going to do until she meets a new friend.

This book is breath-taking! It's kept me reading until I was completely done! The whole time I wanted to know if she would get her family back, and if she is strong enough to fight what she wants. I am really happy with this book and cannot wait for more.  Alexia Purdy, you're like a Black Widow, you capture us in your web, and hold us tranquil until the end.. I highly recommend this book!!!
