Almost Human: The First Trilogy: Fatual Infatuation - Melanie Nowak


Synopsis:
In this witty paranormal adventure/romance, each chapter alternates perspective between an elder vampire and a young human girl as they navigate the difficulties of addiction and desire; the perils of zombies and vampires; and struggles with abuse, morality and... college.
Volume 1: FATAL INFATUATION -
Felicity is quiet, shy and prone to self doubt. Going away to college is an opportunity to mature into a confident young woman; but her new beginning turns out to be more of an adventure than she bargained for when she finds that her new school is plagued not by bullies, but vampires!
Cain is a man who displays quiet confidence and inner strength even as he struggles to overcome the sins of his past. Centuries ago he was reborn as a creature of the night - a vampire. Surprisingly he found that in losing his life he gained his faith and a purpose. His mission: find the hostile vampires who have settled in this small college town, and educate them to live in peace with humans. Their leader, Sindy is a wicked temptress who has set her sights on Felicity's new friend Ben, and will be difficult to control; but after meeting Felicity, Cain's most difficult task lies in controlling himself.

My Opinion:
For all you vampire lovers this is a book for you!
It has all the great elements of a great story, complete with romance, suspense and drama. It seemed to have the right touch of everything for me.
I liked the flow of the author's writing as well. Every page seemed connected and often that is not the case. This book is nicely done.
I am surely to recommend this one to all paranormal junkies, don't be put off by the cover. I wasn't fond of it either, but the cover doesn't make the story.


4/5

Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.
