Why did I pick this book: The author asked if I would review his book. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)

Did I enjoy this book: 

There were vampires, but they sucked souls instead of blood, and we weren’t allowed to call them vampires.  There were teenagers with super powers, but instead of saving the world they killed people and blamed it all on genetics.  There were love affairs, but they were obviously sour from the start (as evidenced by the backhanded allusions to Twilight).

And the teaser for book 2?  Yeah.  Zombies.  …I bet we’re not allowed to call them zombies, either…


Would I recommend it: No.

Will I read it again: No.


About the book – from Goodreads: 
Fifteen-year old Alex Cronlord just met the boy of her dreams. Literally. Unfortunately, the dream involved him killing her. When she encounters him at her school the next morning, Alex understandably freaks out – and her mother’s bizarre behavior only makes it worse. What Alex doesn’t realize is that she can see the future – which will get her into a whole lot of trouble.

Across town, FBI Agent Moira McBain and her partner Andy Hall investigate a series of house burnings in Dallas, Texas. When a clue leads them to the Cronlords, Moira discovers a disturbing link between Alex’s family and her own – which opens an old wound Moira has spent years trying to ignore.

Something is rotten in Dallas, Texas – something involving a secret society, children with extraordinary powers, and human-looking creatures who might literally be out of this world ….
