The Vampire Queen Reviews
I was drawn in from the very first page wondering who this countess and her subjects were. I had to turn the pages to find out what was going to be revealed. The countess herself had no memories; we learned them along with her. She turned out to be a vampire, the Ancient One, and there were also evil vampires (and you didn't always know for sure who they were) trying to manipulate her because they had goals of their own...evil goals.She had a difficult time wondering just who she could trust, and for a time she was deceived, but let me tell you she wises up and her powers, like flying and mind reading, come into play full force!Awesome story Jodie Pierce! Highly imaginative, well-written, and it leaves the reader wanting more!
A woman wakes up with amnesia and slowly discovers she’s an ancient, powerful vampire. The beginning opened strong with the mystery of who she is, who those around her are, and how she arrived where she is. This book is full of witchcraft with magic and spells, vampires, voodoo, and supernatural powers.The story seemed mechanically ok. The characters all had a purpose and the story flowed nicely. Its short chapters and simple story telling made it seem like a chapter book. However, with lesbian undertones, make no mistake. This is not a children’s book.The idea of an ancient being who has recurring amnesia is a great concept. I have not seen this before in vampire mythologies. I found this to be unique and intriguing.I love that the main character is a powerful woman but I ultimately did not like the Countess. I found her character contradictory and illogical at times. In the beginning, she couldn’t make out the creature lurking in the dark corner of her chamber, but later on she could see without needing to adjust her eyes. She did not trust the Count. Yet, she trusted every female who came her way. Shouldn’t she have been mistrustful of everyone? What was the moral stick by which she forgave some, tortured some, and killed others? And poor Count! He is with her, protecting her, century after century, so loyal and loving. And yet…well, it’s not enough? Let’s just say, I did not like the Countess.What really struck me, in the end, were the blurred lines between good and evil. What makes evil evil and good good? Was the Countess good because she drank “wine” and was not killing humans for food? Were the Others, the ones with so-called “tainted blood”, evil? What made one person good enough to be forgiven and another not? I could not tell if a philosophical question was lurking beneath the surface or if the writing was supposed to be ambiguous.As a paranormal reader, I was not crazy about this book. Yet, it did have a unique concept.This book is for mature audiences only.For more reviews such as this, please visit: http://ravenreviewer.tumblr.com
"The Vampire Queen" by Jodie Pierce is the first installment of The "Vampire Queen Trilogy". A must read for vampire fanatics who are looking for an interesting short story. The book centers around Countess Paulina de Lourdes, a vampire who has been awaken from a deep slumber by the Count, her benefactor. The Countess must learn who she is and who her allegiance lays with in a battle of good and evil. Along this journey she learns why her allegiance is so important in the vampire world and why. She finds friendship, love and betrayal in those who are close to her. I recommend this book if you are looking for a fast-paced, elegantly written short story. Each character is unique and plays a role in the outcome of this story. The Countess is, strong, powerful and determined if a little juvenile and petulant at times. She allows no one to step on her; therefore you end up admiring her for this. While I enjoyed reading this book, I would have liked more character depth. The Countess, being the main character, was a little hard to like at first. I would also have liked to know more about the Count and the relationship between the two. The ending leaves you with questions and well, I will certainly read the second book, and find out what adventure the Countess finds herself in next. Jodie Pierce is an excellent writer, she lures you into her world with few words and unique characters. I will admit, this is the first book that I have read from this author and it will not be the last.
I received this book from the author to write an honest review. I decided to review this as a trilogy instead of individually, so this is my take on all 3 books.First let me say that I enjoyed the story line. It was fun to follow, and the characters were easy enough to keep straight (some books’ characters so closely resemble the others that they do not seem individual).As for the writing itself, in my opinion the first book, The Vampire Queen, seemed almost to be written as a teenager might write. It seemed very stilted, and there was no flow. The second book, The Vampire Chronicles, was much better, but still did not read as well as I would have liked. The third, Demise of the Vampire Queen, definitely showed maturity of the author. In reading these, I could see how much she grew just in these three books. Book one seemed to be like the bare branches of a tree in the winter, but by the third book, I could see the leaves coming out as the tree was beginning to come alive.I was left with some unanswered questions by the time I was done. I don’t feel the story created enough strife and grief to the people to leave them wishing the demise of this queen. I would have liked to see her portrayed as a much more evil, self-serving wench. However it was decent enough.I would read more of this writer as she continues to grow and mature in her mission as an author.
The Countess awaks to find herself with no memory of who she is, where everyone is telling her she is not only The Vampire Queen, but also the first vampire - The 'Ancient One', yet the Count who is caring for and protecting her is slow to answer her questions.Overall, I did enjoy the book, but I found The Coutness's frustration at not knowing what is going on and the way she was told is was for her own protection and to keep her from being evil etc... a tad annoying after a while. And to be told that she chose this state -- getting bored and sleeping for years and then waking tabla rasa again seemed a bit childish. Yet I did enjoy the peek throughs of the Ancient One that came through as she tried to take back control of the situation. You could see glimmers of her evil side as she manipulated people around her. Then a bit of the childishness would come through and I would want to smack her. lol But overall, it kept me reading and interested but I wodner if a full sized novel would have been more satisfying?
The Vampire Queen is a fast paced story of self-discovery and intrigue. Jodie Pierce has a unique look at the world of vampires and her writing keeps you reading in order to discover what happens next. She keeps you guessing right until the end about who is good or evil. Each character seems to have their own agenda and secrets.With one turn after another, the suspense of mounting secrets makes the reader have to know more. Who is telling the truth? Who has more to hide? Who is manipulating whom? And what really is the truth? These questions only grow along with the story!While the characters are sexy and alluring, it seems to me more of a mystery/thriller. It isn't a long book, but that makes you want to know what will happen next, to know more about the characters -- begging Ms. Pierce for more!My only problem is that it is too short. ;)
I was given this series by the author for an honest review.I felt this was the start to an vampire series, it was short, butinteresting nonetheless and look forward to reading more books by the author.
I was disappointed in this book. It sounded interesting but it read like a high school project. The ideas seemed random and unplanned as the story went on.
