Our customer reviews

Kalina is grieving over the loss of her ex-boyfriend, Aaron. She broke up with him because he was an alcoholic and would not get help. He crashed his car and now he's gone. Little did she know that was as far from the truth as possible. The son of a vineyard owner, Aaron was actually a vampire. But Kalina doesn't learn about that until his step-brothers, Stuart and Jaegar, enter the picture. Stuart is the new student at her school. It turns out that the two brothers have come to Rutherford to protect Kalina. Kalina is the key to breaking the curse of the vampire. Her blood is rumored to be Life's Blood...able to turn a vampire human or to dark evil, depending on if the blood is given in love or resistance. Soon, vampires from all over are attempting to reach Kalina. Even Jaegar and Stuart's ancient leader, Octavius, has now shown an interest in Kalina. When Stuart is kidnapped by Octavius, Kalina and Jaegar travel to rescue him. It's at this point that the story throws a curve ball at the reader, and of course ends with a cliffhanger. Don't you hate when that happens? Well, don't fear, the story is continued in book two, LIFE'S BLOOD. I've wanted to read PULSE for a while now. I first saw it posted on GoodReads and was immediately entranced by the cover. What lies between the covers did not disappoint at all. A very fast-moving story, PULSE kept me on the edge of my seat until the final page. The story should be reserved for the older teen, though, due to sexual references. There is nothing overtly sexual, but the references are there, so the story may not be appropriate for the younger audience. But other than that, the story entertained and has made me want to run out for the next installment.show more
