I AM Alive: I am not my heart rate. I am not my skills. I am not how I look like. My name is Decca Tenderstone. I live in a future America where teenagers are ranked on a scale from 1 to 10 on graduation day. There has never been a 10. Those below the rank of 5 are considered Monsters, a liability to society. The system says I am a Monster. I will not let them kill me. I will survive.

Initiation: Being a Vampire is a crime punishable by eternal servitude in the arena as a Gladiator of the Iron Gate. Mira, a newly turned vampire, must prove she has what it takes to survive in the human’s world. It’s kill or be killed. Immortality is not guaranteed.

Dissension: In the aftermath of the great cataclysm, vampires are enslaved by humans and used for blood sport as gladiators in the arena. Mira is undefeated, uncompromising, and unbreakable, but when an escape attempt leads her into the path of the city’s Regent, her destiny is changed forever.

Finding Hope: After the death of the one person he called mother, Elei leaves the Trashlands of Ost for the city – looking for other people and for answers. But he soon finds out that people are complicated and answers hard to come by…

Rex Rising: In a world where parasites create new human races, Elei leads a peaceful life as aircar driver — until a mysterious attack on his boss sends him fleeing with a bullet in his side and the fleet at his heels.

Resonant: As the first days of the end of humanity tumble across the City of Las Vegas, turning everyone into vampire-like creatures, April Tate will find out what it really means to survive.

Reign of Blood: April Tate is a seventeen-year-old ferocious vampire killer who lives in the remains of Las Vegas one year after a viral epidemic has left the world decimated. After her family is abducted, her world tilts when she discovers they’re not truly alone.

Released: After a demon apocalypse kills everyone they know, 17-year old Abby Phillips, her brother and her friend Max flee their home to travel through the wastelands of America, chasing a radio transmissions of a resistance offering shelter. But soon enough Abby and her companions discover what awaits them is much worse they could have ever imagined.






I picked Reign Of Blood by Alexia Purdy to read in the Shades of Chaos box set. I had been wanting to read it for a while and now I know why. Immediately I was thrown into a world gone bad. A world with terrifying wild vampires called ferals and the more civilized vamps called hybrids. Feral vamps kill humans and can't come out during the day. Hybrids were a lot like humans but still need human blood but they get it from blood bags.

April, her mom and younger brother Jeremy live in the mountains around Las Vegas. Pretty much they were the only humans left and are immune to the vampire virus. On a supply run Aprils mom and brother go missing and it was up to her to find them. While searching she was taken in by a group of hybrids that had been watching her. Reign of Blood is her journey along with a group of hybrids to find her family in exchange they get to study her blood for her immunity.

April was a great main character. She was very easy to read and very realistic. I can see her love and determination to get her family back. She was definitely a kick butt kind of heroine. And the romance was precious. Even though I was hopping for more of Rye and April it was perfect - maybe next book?!?! :)

Speaking of next book I can't wait! I'm definitely going to read more books in this set.
