Beauty, brains and spunk are only a few
of the traits that pass down through the genetics of Dr.
Derrickson’s family. What Carinian’s family doesn’t pass
along is the chance to live a long life. Having most of her
family die at young ages from one ailment or another has
turned Carinian’s sole focus in life to the research of gene
therapy and the chance to combat what she knows to be an early
demise in her future. Using the fables of vampire myths as
her guide, Carinian attempts to create the equivalent of
vampirism to save herself. In comes Jon Bixler, a Seeker for
the Vampire Council of Ethics, whose mission is to find a
rogue vampire by using Carinian any way he sees fit. Bix’s
uncontrollable emotions where she’s concerned soon leads to
another discovery; that the mouthy doctor is more than just a
ways to a means, she’s also his fated mate.
Talk about your untypical vampire story.
Using a little urban flair, with an off brand sense of humor,
T.J. Michaels creates a captivating story that had me
laughing all the way through. In Carinian’s Seeker,
Carin, a feisty female doctor that has more brains than brawn,
but enough heart to make up for her lack of physical power. I
almost spit out my milk when, in the heat of a battle, she
said how she wasn’t a “punk b*tch”. The last thing I
expected, but just the right attitude for a woman whose
vampire lover is pure alpha and all male. Bix, her vampire
assassin, was just the right blend of controlling yet loving
hero. Vulnerable when it comes to his woman, but still
invincible in the heat of battle.
I found Carinian’s Seeker
to be a light read with arousing sensuality and plenty of
action. I’m really looking forward to a follow-up story
featuring Bix’s best friend and a few of the other Seekers who
I’m sure will be just as exciting to read about.
