You can read the Goodreads summary here.

Blood Drive is a paranormal police drama in which Cara finds her life turned upside down after her partner's murder.  She is soon thrown into a world of paranormal where she, along with her new group of friends, must hunt down her partner's murderer, an elusive vampire by the name of Christian who lures people into his way of life by convincing them he's the messiah.

If you like the paranormal, this is the book for you.  It's got everything: vampires, witches, gargoyles, gremlins, and the list goes on.  I'd never read a book with gargoyles or gremlins before, so that was an interesting turn in the plot that I enjoyed.  I also enjoyed the pace of the book - the short chapters led to a quick moving plot that left me turning the pages, eager to see what would happen next.

I thought the first chapter started out slow and was a little redundant, but as soon as Jonathan was introduced as Cara's love interest, the the book quickly got immensely more interesting.  The chemistry between Cara and Jonathan is great and I loved watching their romance develop through the novel.  (Just a note to my YA followers- this book is not YA, it has a few sex scenes.)

Four stars!  Minus one star for the redundant start and lack of character development, but other than that I thought this was a really good read.  The ending was something!  I don't want to ruin it, but let me just say I didn't know a vampire could do that!  Ha, now I've got you interested.  If you like paranormal books, you're definitely going to want to give this a read.  And lucky for you, I'm giving a copy of the book away!
