Book Summary:

Seventeen year old Beck doesn’t consider herself a tree-hugger. With her multi-colored dreadlocks and her combat boots, she’s more at home working at Criminal Records Music than taking a stroll in the woods. That is, until she falls for Jordan, a handsome vampire activist who remembers Earth’s past and wants to save its future. But will Jordan’s friends accept Beck’s help? Or will they decide that humans are the problem – and the solution is wiping them out? A hopeful environmental message shines at the heart of this YA short story by Writers of the Future award winner Laura Bradley Rede, author of the YA paranormal series The Darkride Chronicles.

My Review:

I picked up this short story quit a while ago, but as with many things it had gotten lost in the vast mess of books that is my kindle.  Know that I have finally read it, I wish I had done it sooner.

Beck is your typical teenager of today. Jordan, although we don’t find out his exact age is obviously quit old.  He has a special connection to this particular forest from his childhood.  Without giving to much away, it is a short story, we find out that the vampires are out in the open to the human population and they are worried about the plant.  The environmental message is strong and the flow of the story is great.

I was hoping this was part of a bigger series.  But I can’t find anything.  All in all if your looking for paranormal and quick your heading in the right direction.temp-4
