Book review: Drain Me by Lana Sky

Drain Me
The Ellie Grey Chronicles #1
Author: Lana Sky
Reading Level: New Adult
Genre: Vampire
Released: October 7th 2014
Review Source: Purchased
When diagnosed with a fatal illness at the age of twenty six, Eleanor Gray is resigned to her fate—at least until the enigmatic Dublin Helos appears and makes her an offer she knows she should refuse:

Life or Death?

With a decision as harmless as checking the wrong box on a mysterious questionnaire, Ellie is plunged into a dangerous world where souls are sold to the highest bidder and pleasure is fueled by pain.

The rules of this new life are simple: submit everything—mind, body and soul. But the further Ellie falls under Dublin’s control, the more she comes to realize that it’s not just her sanity at stake, but her heart and a whole lot of blood too.

This is a New Adult  novel recommended for ages 18+ due to sexual content and mature subject matter

Ellie was dying. Her parents were dead and her sister was traveling the world, mooching off the money their parents left. She was alone and dying. The harmless question of 'would you choose life or death?' sent Ellie's life into shambles. Of course, she said yes. But she didn't actually anticipate to live.

Drain Me is a worldwind of emotions. It took two unusual characters, placed them together and the result was twists and turns. Nothing happened the way I expected and I finished the book with a kind of empty feeling. I want more on the unexpected things, more on the relationship (if I can even call it that) between Ellie and Dublin.

Ellie was an interesting character. She confuses me a lot, the things she says and does doesn't match up to the fact she wants to live. She chose to live, but it's the choices after that speak louder. Turns out she's just very stubborn and has very little to care about in the world. She wants to live but not as she knew life before. Truthfully, I don't understand Ellie. I like that I don't understand her because it makes her unpredictable. Unpredictable is nice change.

Vampires are 100% the way to my heart. The majority of my absolute favourites books/series are revolved around vampires so the bar is set really high for me. Lana Sky took vampires back to the good 'ole times to when they weren't nice. When they weren't good characters where everything wasn't easy and painless. It was a refreshing read and a credit to the paranormal genre.
