Thirsty by Tracey Bateman

It was bound to happen - Christians had to jump on the vampire bandwagon sooner or later. And that is what we have with Tracey Bateman's Thirsty.

However, this book is not like your typical vampire novel. In fact, the vampire characters play a very small role.

This story is about an alcoholic named Nina. Her addiction has lost her her job, her family, and her self-respect.

She ends up moving back to the hometown in which she grew up. Little does she know that there is a vampire that has been waiting for her since she was a teenager.

Not only does Nina have a vampire after her love, but she has 2 other men in her life: her ex-husband, and the father of her daughter.

This, on top of her alcoholism, is bound to cause horrific trouble for her.

The author wanted to write a vampire story that brought glory to God and she believes she as achieved that with Thirsty. A book about the metaphor of vampires more than vampires themselves.

Having said that, this was a great book for people who have an itch for vampires and their lore.

This book was provided for review by WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.
