Blood Memories by: Barb Hendee

Publication Date: October 2009

Synopsis: Eleisha, a vampire, is far older than she looks-and makes men yearn to care for her. Then she usually kills them, since self-preservation comes first. So when an old vampire friend kills himself, Eleisha is shocked. And what she finds in his home shows how world-weary he had become- hoarding corpses and keeping records of vampires' actual names and addresses. Now the police know who Eleisha is, and more alarmingly, what she is. But she soon realizes that being known may have its uses-even if it puts her and her kind at risk...

My thoughts: This book is very different from the rest of the vampire books you've read...I'm sure of it.
These vampires all work hard to acquire strong abilities they are mad with them.
Eleisha was made by Julian at 17 She left to care for Julian's fatherWilliam who is also a vampire, but suffers from a mental illness, one that they thought changing him into a vamp would solve.
When Eleisha's friend, Edward kills himself in front of 2 cops, she flees the area with William and runs to her friend Maggie
Maggie ends up getting killed by Dominick, one of the cops. Then Dom kills William, as well.
So Eleisha runs away with the good cop Wade until Philip another of her friends shows up to find out what's going on. in order to save Wade she runs with Philip and they kill Dom....YAY!!!
Julian the head vampire comes to kill Wade and punish them. Only Eleisha shows him she has power to control him. So Julian leaves them alive and tells them there are more vampire out in the world....when they thought there were none.

My rating: 3 stars
