What Kills Me Review!

I stumbled across this book from one of my Facebook friends (which I can't even remember who it was now) and I saw the price was only 99 cents.  Well, being the day before pay day, I was broke, so 99 cents literally is a great price for me when I want to discover new books.  Plus, I read the reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, and it had a ton of great reviews.  Well, you can add this review to that pile, because I really liked this book!  I make it a point not to read too many books with vampires anymore, because a lot of what is out there is regurgitated Twilight with different names and settings.  What Kills Me is NOT like those books, and I could not be more glad.  This book was fresh and different, and really engaging!

I loved how Axelia was portrayed.  She actually was like a real teenage girl, which I don't really see that much anymore.  Usually you get the whole, "she's an old woman in a young person's body" but Axelia refreshingly acts young (novel I know).  Plus, her creation into the undead was pretty darn cool and different, as well as the drama in the story!  The hunt for Axelia is fast paced, and brutal, and we see her truly grow as a character.  I also can't wait to see what direction her and Lucas' relationship takes, because Lucas sounds pretty bad ass!  This book is a must read for anyone!  It's only 99 cents which is a bargain for a good book!  Plus the ending will totally throw you for a loop, because you don't see it coming!  Super good, and I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a fun and original read!  Can't wait for the next one Wynne!  (I still really wish you had called it Well!) 

What Kills Me Blurb:
An ancient prophecy warns of a girl destined to cause the extinction of the vampire race.

So when 17-year-old Axelia falls into a sacred well filled with blood and emerges a vampire, the immortal empire believes she is this legendary destroyer. Hunted by soldiers and mercenaries, Axelia and her reluctant ally, the vampire bladesmith Lucas, must battle to survive.

How will she convince the empire that she is just an innocent teenager-turned bloodsucker and not a creature of destruction? And if she cannot, can a vampire who is afraid of bugs summon the courage to fight a nation of immortals?
