Dark Legacy by M.A. Anderson

Dark Legacy (Dark Legacy #1)Dark Legacy
by M.A. Anderson

My rating: 4.9 of 5 stars 
*If you've been reading my blog on book reviews long you will realize that I don't give 5's very often. Personally I hate the 5 point system because there is a wide range of books between 4 and 5.  Also, to me a 5 is perfect and I just don't think any book is perfect.**

In LA there is always crime and homicides, but the latest string has Detective Reese Daniels mystified. They are drained of blood, but no wounds. One would be victim didn't get fully drained and was found alive and rushed to the ER, where Doctor Andre Delacroix manages to save his life. When Reese calls his best friend Andre to ask a question about blood, Andre informs him about his patient. The thing that scares Andre is that this looks like a vampire to him, and he's not sure Reese will believe him. Dark Legacy is a tell of cops chasing after a killer always one step ahead of them, a doctor, who just happens to be a vampire, but not a killing one, teaming together with an unconventional priest and in the end the chief, to fight something they have no clue how to deal with. Author +M. A. Anderson   gives readers a tell that you can not put down. There are so many twists and turns, it becomes so complex as more and more people, who you originally think are just bit characters in the book become more and more involved in the story. You never know who will become important.

While there many be any number of Vampire novels on the shelf, this one is so different and wild. It's not your typical boy-girl romance/ human-vampire romance. This is crime, serial killer, detective novel mixed with a vampire and priest vampire hunter, a nightclub, and even a shifter thrown in for good measure. Author +M. A. Anderson  has really taken a great mystery novel and interwoven a vampire theme into it, and believe me it will keep you guessing until the very last page. To be honest, I think this is the first time I have read a crime novel that included vampires, and I really liked it. I hope to see more of this type now that the barrier has been broken. Definitely an adult book, although the sex scenes are only alluded to, and the violence is described tastefully. Young adults and teens would be a parent call. But this is definitely one you don't want to pass!
