When Lucy Leary turned 18, her life fell apart. She crashed her car, her best friend abandoned her, her parents divorced, and her grandfather passed away, leaving her a single possession: A vampire slaying kit with a note that said, “THEY’RE REAL. FIGHT THEM.”
Now Lucy must stop the oldest, most dangerous vampire in history, before it can kill her family.
Blood Calling was an okay book. It didn't have a whole lot of depth to it, but I thought it was a very interesting story, with some humor as well. It's about Lucy, a girl whose whole world seems to be changing. Her parents are getting a divorce, she's turning 18, and she's a senior in high school. But things really start to change when her grandfather dies, and she finds a vampire hunting kit in his closet. She doesn't know if her grandfather really believed in vampires, or if it was part of him getting old. She soon finds out that maybe her grandfather wasn't so loony after all, maybe he was right and vampires are real. I did enjoy reading this story. It had a lot of humor, and it was pretty fast paced. The vampires are a little bit different than normal, so that added to the story as well. However the only thing lacking in the book was some major depth to it. It felt like everything was based on a superficial line, and didn't go any deeper. I may want to read more just to see what happens because I really like Lucy. So for a fast paced read about vampires, I do recommend this book.
