Brooke Keller is a high school junior who has never spent much time living in one place. She is finally in a town long enough to almost snag the boy of her dreams, until her life is threatened after killing a fanged man in his attempt to kidnap her. Brooke begins a dangerous journey in an effort to find out who is after her and how to stop them. In a world with powerful and prejudiced vampires, Brooke must tap into the side of her that she never knew existed at the risk of losing her life in order to save it.

My take...
Brooke Keller finally has been in one town long enough to have BFF Kaitlynn in her life and a date with cutie Jaren. After years of moving from one town to the next with her mom, this is huge that she has managed to stay in one place this long. Just when she thinks she might actually be able to lead a normal teenage life, in walks trouble. Unfortunately trouble is a shady-trench-coat-wearing-dude stalking Brooke. Once the guy tries and fails to kidnap Brooke, she learns she is not just a normal teen, but something more. Now her relationship with Jaren is taking a hit and she is forced to leave home to some where safe. Will Brooke get back to what she thought was a normal life or will things spiral out of control even more?
I found Kace’s view on vampires fascinating as well as the differences between the 2 types of vampires in the story. It really is an interesting and refreshing take she has on the world of vampires. You don’t leave feeling as if you have read it before. No sparkly vampires in this book!
I enjoyed the characters and the love triangle that emerges out of the story. I like that Brooke and Kaitlynn were so close. It took me back to my high school days and my best friends, and how I would have done anything for them. I did go into the book knowing beforehand that there would be a triangle. And once I started the story I figured I would be Team Jaren, then Mirko entered and all that changed. All I can say is whooo hellooo Mirko!
Descended by Blood is definitely a page turner filled with action, romance and twists you won’t see coming! There was so much goodness in this book you will not want to put it down.
