Review: Blood Drive by Jeanne C. Stein

Publication Date: 5/8/2014
Series: Anna Strong #2
Rating: 5 Stars

Official Blurb:

My name is Anna Strong. I’m a woman caught between two worlds—my past as a bounty hunter, my present as a vampire. I do my best to hold on to what makes me human—my family, my job, my lover. But the pull of the undead is a siren song that’s becoming impossible to resist . . . 

Anna’s fragile grip on a normal life evaporates when she discovers that her long-dead brother had a child she never knew anything about. Now a young teen, that child—Trish—is caught up in the worst kind of human nightmare. In order to save her niece, Anna fears she might have to surrender to the animal side of her nature. 

As she stalks Trish’s predators, the lines between good and evil are no longer clearly defined. And before long, Anna has to ask herself who is the real monster, the humans who prey on their own kind or herself, the blood-thirsty vampire doing anything she has to in order to save them.

Anna continues to have her internal battle with her inner human and her outer vampire. She’s had to do terrible things in the last book to seek revenge on David’s unexpected captor as well as the vampire who made her. She has to face those demons when she finds out her long dead brother may have fathered a child. This child now a teenage girl has gone missing. Her rough around the edges mother insists she involved in a drug ring with favorite local teacher Daniel Frey. Yet, Anna finds out the story she’s been giving is far from the truth that she’ll have to protect Trish and seek revenge on her behalf. Throw in the fact that the FBI is now tailing her, and you’ve got a very pissed off vampire. Her outer blood thirsty vampire will be released in order to give her newly found niece Trish some peace.

Anna’s story just keeps getting better and better. Stein’s world development dives farther into the world of the supernatural by adding in shapeshifters. As Anna investigates, Stein throws in real world issues into Blood Drive. They aren’t always easy to read, but its not exactly a topic that needs to stay hidden either. Anna continues to battle her demons while trying to become the vampire she’s destined to be. She realizes at the end of the book that she cannot be both human and vampire. She has difficult decisions to make. Stein teases us with her decision in the last chapter of this book. I cannot wait to dive into the next book and discover what trouble and dangers lie ahead fo
