Review of Anomaly by J.C. Emery


How far would you go to save your sister?

Life as a college senior is stressful enough. Between mid-terms, stupid boys, and a rare blood condition, Eliza Landry is just trying to figure out what normal is—whatever that means—when she discovers that vampires aren’t just a thing of legend.

In a matter of moments, her life changes forever when she and her older sister Kate suffer a vampire attack which leaves Eliza with two puncture wounds on her neck and an allergy to sunlight. But she’s still human, or at least she thinks she is. It doesn’t really matter—her main concern is that her sister is missing.

Sorrow turns to obsession, leading Eliza to piece together the puzzle of that terrifying night. Even stumbling upon a millennia-old vampire assassin named Luke Conrad who either wants to kiss her or kill her (she can't decide) cannot deter her.

When bodies start piling up and one of them is supposedly Kate, Eliza and Luke set out to discover who is behind the attacks. Soon, Eliza is drawn into the dark and dangerous world of the undead, with no guarantee she’ll make it out alive, and no doubt that she won’t like what she finds.


This book was nothing like I expected.  The concept was different and fresh. 

I enjoyed Eliza's character a lot.  She went from someone who relied on others in the beginning to claiming her independence in the end.  She transformed throughout the story.  Luke on the other hand, I didn't care much for.  He was too wishy washy as a love interest and supporting character.   

I really wanted to see more romance in this book, but that was really the only thing I disliked.  As far as storyline, it flowed well.  The story was overall really good and left me ready for the next book.  It didn't tie up any loose ends, but just kind of stopped.  Now I have to know what happens.

This was a good new adult book overall and I give it four glittery stars for being original!
