Vampire world by Rich Douglas


A popular teen is bitten by a vampire during a steamy night of making out with her boyfriend. After the bite, she wakes up in a cruel orphanage in Vampire World, with no memory of her past. She’s left with very little; only fangs, pale skin and a keen desire for blood.

Marissa, who’s named Janice in Vampire World, escapes the ghastly orphanage thanks to Mr. John FreeCut, an old, benevolent vampire who adopts Janice because he wants to foster children he could never have. He says her parents died in a crash. Beautiful, innocent and thrust into an enigmatic world she has no memory of, Janice must face many challenges. The grueling blood hostess job. The multiple stalkers and creepers who are hungry for her and her blood. The dizzying fireball competition. And most challenging, the fact that she doesn’t look or act like a vampire.

Janice is emotionally overwhelmed. Thankfully she makes some friends, including Brett BloodCut. Brett and Janice are immersed in a passionate romance, and Brett helps Janice adjust to her new world by giving her the love, confidence and knowledge she needs to survive as a vampire. Janice finds a way to succeed in such a problematic world. Things go well for Janice, though not for long. A stranger knows the truth about her past.

Slowly but surely Janice discovers the truth that she is being lied to by the ones she loves. She must learn the secret behind TriFang, and ultimately accept the stinging reality that things are not always what they seem. Could the truth ever be so bloody?

My Review

 Vampire world is the story of Marisa, a normal teenage girl with good friends, and a hot boyfriend. Everything is great until she is in an accident and wakes up in a strange and terrifying place called Vampire World. She has no memories of her former life, not even her name, but for her the strangest part is that she is now a vampire!  As she acclimates to the frightening new home (and new name), she has to learn how to live and fit in and she slowly learns how to get along.  She has help in her adoptive father, and new friend she meets at her first job. Then in her super sweet and hot boyfriend, Bret. Things get scary when a secret person sends her messages and leads her on missions to find the truth about Vamipre world and her past.

I have very mixed feelings about this book. At times it seemed like a paranormal romance/mystery, but at other times it seemed like a political thriller set in a world of vampires. I enjoyed the story. The romance parts were sweet and I found it fascinating when she was learning to navigate her new life. But the strange clues and secret society weren't really my cup of tea. I can't say I loved this book, but I do feel strangely compelled to find out how the story concludes, so I suppose the author did a well enough job of intriguing me. I give it 3.5 stars. 

Author Bio

I am from New Orleans, Lousiana and I write young adult novels, fantasy and science fiction.

My new novel, Vampire World, is now available. If you enjoy reading paranormal YA fiction, 

please check this out now.

The Magical Tale of Eliza Felding, Book 1 of a trilogy, takes place in New Orleans one year 

after Hurricane Katrina. It involves teens, romance and tons of magic.

The Secret of the Dogs is a children's book about four very different dogs (a Basenji, a 

Greyhound, a Pomeranian and an Airdale Terrier) who go on a quest to rescue a young boy 

that is being abused by his father.

I love writing, teaching, storm chasing, traveling and drinking orange soda.
