*[Blog Tour Review & Giveaway] What Kills Me by Wynne Channing


Summary:

The fight for survival begins.

An ancient prophecy warns of a girl destined to cause the extinction of the vampire race.

So when 17-year-old Axelia falls into a sacred well filled with blood and emerges a vampire, the immortal empire believes she is this legendary destroyer. Hunted by soldiers and mercenaries, Axelia and her reluctant ally, the vampire bladesmith Lucas, must battle to survive.

How will she convince the empire that she is just an innocent teenager-turned bloodsucker and not a creature of destruction? And if she cannot, can a vampire who is afraid of bugs summon the courage to fight a nation of immortals?

This book really impressed me. When I first got the tour invite I was drawn in by the stunning cover more so than the summary. What can I say? I love book covers. By the time I got around to reading the book summary I had already made up my mind to host a spot on the book's blog tour.

I'm very glad that I chose to take part in the blog tour for What Kills Me by Wynne Channing. Before this I had never heard of the author before so I'm happy that the I was able to try a new to me author out.

I really liked Axelia's (I LOVE her name!!) character. She was a normal teenager with normal wants and desires when she took off abroad but then a pesky ancient curse found her falling into a well and BAM! She got fangs and became a vampire. I actually thought the whole ancient curse thing was a nice touch. I thought it was really unique to find a vampire novel.

What really had me liking the book the most was that there was an adequate bit of romance but there was a nice amount of action. I loved Lucas and how he fit into the story because he was such a great match for Axelia.

Overall, the book was a really enjoyable read. I happened to read it in one sitting it was such a good read I just had to finish it it because I couldn't help but want to find out what was next. I highly recommend this book to all the YA paranormal romance lovers who are looking for a unique take on vampires.
