Descripción del producto

Ava Delaney calls herself a hybrid - a living, breathing human who happens to have vampire poison running through her veins. The only thing greater than her thirst for human blood is her capacity for guilt. She does her best to avoid the human world, for everyone's sake.

When Ava accidentally enslaves a human while saving him from a vampire, she realises she has to look for help setting him free. Despite her misgivings, she expands her world but finds herself dragged into a possible vampire civil war. With the help of some new friends with ambiguous loyalties, she tries to find a way to keep her human, and herself, alive.

At approx. 45,000 words, Thirst is the first in a 6-book urban fantasy series. Now comes with preview chapters of Taunt (Ava Delaney #2).

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A cozy little bloodbath 3 de diciembre de 2010
Por Joseph - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle
Ava Delainey is not a vampire, she's a hybrid (a daywalker created when her pregnant mother was bitten by a vampire, like Blade). But one night she stumbles fully into the paranormal world of psychic enslavement, magic spells, and clan wars. And everyone wants a piece of her.

The novella is well-written with plenty of action and several interesting characters, but the story could use a bit more focus. Too often the characters stand around to recap what just happened and argue about what to do next.

Thirst ends on strong note. Ava has a dark and twisted future ahead of her. I think Thirst will read better in a compilation with its inevitable sequels.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas An Enjoyable Read: Old School Vampires with a Twist 13 de julio de 2011
Por Brown Thumb - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle|Compra verificada por Amazon
I'll admit it. I downloaded this book when it was a free read, but I purchased the next book in the series, Taunt, because I enjoyed Thirst so much. It's so much fun to read about "old school vampires" who have fangs and don't sparkle. The main character, Ava, is a troubled and flawed vampire hybrid who just wants to lead a "normal" human life. She comes from a dysfunctional family, something many of us can relate to, and tries very hard throughout both books to balance who and what she is, and still be a good person. I think Claire Farrell's work is a refreshing change from the typical vampire story that's out there. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

This was a surprisingly good story that I read in only a few hours; the kind where, after I finished, I immediately jumped on Amazon to buy the sequel (and leave a review). Unlike so many paranormal books these days, this didn't have even a hint of the Twilight taint. Well done, Claire Farrell! Ava is a believable character with a good sense of humor and a few quirks that make her unique, plus she isn't always A) the damsel in distress, or B) the supernaturally strong/brilliant/beautiful/wonderful/insert-fabulous-attribute-here, non-human arse-kicking heroine that makes men quiver with lust and bad guys quail in fear. Instead, she's a nice blend of the two, and that makes her a whole lot more relatable to us sort-of-brave average-looking people. The story itself is fast-paced, going back to days of yore by putting an unromantic spin on the whole vampire thing. Speaking of romance, if you're looking for sex, you won't find it here. Nary a lip-lock is found, which is refreshing for this genre. I highly recommend giving the book a go, particularly since it's currently free on Kindle.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Not Sure What to Say 24 de marzo de 2013
Por M. Anderson - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle|Compra verificada por Amazon
Overall, the story is 3-star worthy because of the combination of 4-star characters, the 2-star plot, and the 2-star literary structure.

Individually, I was very interested in the characters. I think Ava is well thought out, her relationship with Peter well defined, and her place in the story is made clear and precise: She's a danger to everyone, even herself because of her self-imposed isolation and, later, her sudden immersion into the very world she previously cringed from. I get it, and I appreciate it- to an extent. The heart strings are effectively tugged on with Ava's telling of her childhood trauma. The naivete is duly noted and understood. But I think because the story is written in first-person and Ava is so... innocent and conflicted?... It made it difficult for the story to keep my attention. It is such a very self-centered perspective we get from Ava it borders on esoteric.

Which brings me to the plot. Goodness me, the plot. Of course every story is going to have a "one thing led to another" type unfolding because that is how things happen in real life: Nothing happens unless something does, in which a ripple effect occurs and everything happens in all different directions. But the events that happen, one after the other, seem too staged, and in some places seem too far-fetched. A guy as heart-hardened and determined as Peter is not going to drop all his plans and go get so drunk he incapacitates himself, no matter how stressful things are. Just doesn't seem plausible for someone with a raging Type-A personality. But Peter goes and does it and I don't get it. The inconsistency between the character's personalities and their decisions and actions bother me enough that I gave the plot 2-stars.

The literary structure was another big issue with me. I've been an avid reader for close to 2/3rds of my 28 year-long life, and so I understand and appreciate authors who have their own voice, their own way of saying/expressing/wording things. I also understand not every author is going to write in the exact style or structure I prefer. With all this in mind, I have to say, I found myself more concerned with critiquing the structure and sometimes the word choice to stay focused on the story. I was so distracted by this, I had to stop several times and tell myself out loud to just keep reading-- because I wanted to know how the story goes. Uncomfortable and clunky wording and structure aside, the story was interesting enough I wanted to know how Ava managed to survive her first trip into the Vampire world, but not enough to gloss over the awkward structure and wording throughout the story.

Overall this is a good story and the characters are likable, even the creepy Eddie, but I would suggest to the author a better editing and peer review before I'd recommend this to anyone. I get that first books are sometimes awkward and only provide a glimmer of the author's true talent because even though there is talent, it is still raw and usually unrefined. But I cannot reconcile that knowledge with this short story enough to be willing to pass it on to a friend. Sorry.

2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Glad It Was Free.. 27 de mayo de 2012
Por Liz - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle
The book is about a twenty-five year old woman called Ava Delaney who was born as a human being with vampire poison inside her. She accidentally bonds an innocent man named Carl to her and he is forced to obey her every command. All she wants to do is break the bond and be free of him so she seeks help from her grandmother (who she hasn't talked to in seven years), who then gives her the name of a man called Peter who can help her. The trio go along on their journey into trying to find a way to break the connection between Ava and Carl but they come across a lot of nasty vampires along the way and get sucked into a world in which Ava was trying to stay away from for so long.

The main reason I downloaded this eBook was because of the cover. Obviously the summary drew me in too so I decided to give it a go. I'm not really sure how I feel about it yet. It was a very, very quick read. I finished it in about three hours (including taking a break for some food). The plot-line was interesting but I didn't really like the way the story was told. It seemed rushed as if the author just threw it together within a day.

Carl was most definitely the best thing about the entire book. He was freaking HILARIOUS! He didn't have any free will which made it funnier because he literally obeyed everything that Ava told him to do. Everyone was so cautious around him, especially when Ava gave him a stake when they were planning on going up against the other vampires. She had to speak very slowly and carefully to make sure he understood her. Apparently, he wasn't the brightest of men. But he was absolutely brilliant and I adored him. I'm not sure how I feel about Ava. For one, she is a crappy vampire. She had no clue about how they were originally made or how to kill them. A vampire hunter had to tell her for crying out loud. She was also very whiny a lot of the time which made me dislike her even more. The sexual tension between Ava and the said vampire hunter was annoying. I just wanted them to get together already. It was so obvious that they wanted each other.

Another thing that really annoyed me was when a vampire captured Ava. He needed to keep her alive for information but he basically tortured her constantly. She was literally on the brink of death and he wasn't planning on stopping any time soon. I had to stop reading for a few minutes because it was actually giving me a headache. It was just ridiculous.

It definitely wasn't the best story I have read but it wasn't the worse one I have come across either. If you're bored and want a very quick, cheesy, vampire read, this is certainly the thing for you. There's three more books in the series as far as I'm aware but I don't think I'll be jumping to read them anytime soon. Maybe if I'm bored on a rainy day?
