Vampire Addiction is advertised as a combination of Rick Riordan and Twilight for young teens and I'd have to agree. I enjoy both vampire stories and mythology, but this was written for a much younger audience as myself; therefore, I didn't enjoy it as much as I suspect its target audience does.
The author uses some of the oldest vampire myths and intermixes them with Greek mythology in a way that is refreshing and interesting. The book is well written, but I found a few plot holes and some of the action is incongruous. The rules seem to change as needed: a vampire can't enter until invited and then there's exceptions; a vampire can only take an ounce of blood from a human per month and then there's more exceptions. I suspect that teenagers are more caught up in the love triangle and the action though and that's fine; Vampire Addiction wasn't my cup of tea.
Eva Pohler is the Amazon bestselling author of The Mystery Book Collection and four series for young adults: The Gatekeeper's Saga, The Gatekeeper’s Saga Spin-Off Series, The Purgatorium Series, and The Vampires of Athens. Her books have been described as "thrilling" and "addictive." A Kirkus reviewer said of The Gatekeeper's Sons that it was "sure to thrill Hunger Games fans."
A reader herself, Eva writes in multiple genres, but all of her stories blur the line between reality and fantasy, truth and delusion, and draw from Eva's personal philosophy that a reader must be lured and abducted into complete captivity in order to enjoy the reading experience.
