WHAT IF YOUR WHOLE LIFE WAS A LIE?
One Planet.
Two Worlds.
Population: Human … 7 billion.    Others … unknown.

When 14-year-old Char­lie Blake wakes up sweat­ing and gasp­ing for air in the mid­dle of the night, he knows it is hap­pen­ing again. This time he wit­nesses a bru­tal mur­der. He’s afraid to tell any­one. No one would believe him … because it was a dream. Just like the one he had four years ago – the day before his dad died.

Char­lie doesn’t know why this is hap­pen­ing. He would give any­thing to have an ordi­nary life. The prob­lem: he doesn’t belong in the world he knows as home.

He belongs with the others.

I found Talisman of El, by Alecia Stone, on NetGalley. Unfortunately I was skeptical because lately I have come across more than one young adult novel that just didn’t cut it. No I am not a young adult but I am young at heart so quite often I enjoy books in this genre. This book, thankfully, has put a major dent in my recent skepticism of new/unknown authors.

Meet Vivian. She’s a 580-year-old vampire who exudes sex, has a talent for drama, and is passionate about two things: her human husband, Rafe, and their resort for the undead. Her ability to project physical illusions has created the perfect vacation spot a dark, isolated Alaskan hideaway where visitors can have their wildest fantasies come true. 

Vivian knows the best performance requires perfect timing, but the powerful vamp is put to the test when she discovers a corpse in a locked guestroom minutes before the next arrivals. Always cool-headed, Rafe hides the body, convinced he and Vivian can find the culprit without disturbing their guests.

Juggling the increasingly outrageous demands of their customers while tracking a killer isn’t easy. Will their poking and prodding give them the answers they need, or will it uncover secrets Vivian would kill to protect?

I have to admit I didn’t have a lot of confidence in this book. The vampire genre has been over done of late, and I find myself getting tired of reading book after book about typical blood thirsty vampires. Then I started to read, and to my delight this is not your typical vampire story.

Levi’s job is to protect his human until it’s their time to go. That’s what a Guard does. He’s done it for years on end, and he’ll spend his eternity doing the same, mundane thing, following the same, mundane rules.
