Release Day Spotlight & Review: Anomaly by JC Emery



Anomaly
The Birthright Series Book One
by JC Emery 


Genre: YA (small amounts of Romance, History & Mystery)

Book Description:
How far would you go to save your sister? 

Life as a college senior is stressful enough. Between mid-terms, stupid boys, and a rare blood condition, Eliza Landry is just trying to figure out what normal is—whatever that means—when she discovers that vampires aren’t just a thing of legend.

In a matter of moments, her life changes forever when she and her older sister Kate suffer a vampire attack which leaves Eliza with two puncture wounds on her neck and an allergy to sunlight. But she’s still human, or at least she thinks she is. It doesn’t really matter—her main concern is that her sister is missing.

Sorrow turns to obsession, leading Eliza to piece together the puzzle of that terrifying night. Even stumbling upon a millennia-old vampire assassin named Luke Conrad who either wants to kiss her or kill her (she can't decide) cannot deter her.

When bodies start piling up and one of them is supposedly Kate, Eliza and Luke set out to discover who is behind the attacks. Soon, Eliza is drawn into the dark and dangerous world of the undead, with no guarantee she’ll make it out alive, and no doubt that she won’t like what she finds. 

A_TiffyFit's Review:
I liked how this book just jumped right in and started up right away, but that also created some issues for me as I felt like I was missing out on a whole bunch of history that I should know! I admired Kate as Eliza's sister; always looking out for her even if it seems a bit smothering. I found Luke intriguing even as I was a bit confused; I had doubted he was a vampire himself thinking he was just a vampire hunter! The stirrings of romance and lust between Eliza and Luke made me grin. Luke is definitely sexy and a tad mysterious (you so want to know all about his past) that I completely understand Eliza's pull towards him!  I cannot wait for the rest of the series to follow through with the story as we're left on a cliff hanger and I have a lot of unanswered questions!!!

About the Author:
As a child, JC was fascinated by things that went bump in the night. As they say, some things never change. Now, as an adult, she divides her time between the sexy law men, mythical creatures, and kick-ass heroines that live inside her head and pursuing her bachelor's degree in English. As it is for most writers, finding balance is a challenge. JC is a San Francisco Bay Area native, but has also called both Texas and Louisiana home. These days she rocks her flip flops year round in Northern California and can't imagine a climate more beautiful.
With the support and encouragement of her parents and sister, JC set out to figure out what she wanted to do when she grew up. Most days, the jury is still out; however the thing that stuck with her no matter what she pursued was her love of the written word.

JC writes adult, new adult, and young adult fiction. She dabbles in many different genres including science fiction, horror, chick lit, and murder mysteries, yet she is most enthralled by supernatural stories-- and everything has at least a splash of romance.
