Forget Me Not (book review)
Forget Me Not was written by Jaden Sinclair. It is book 1 in the Guardians series. This post was organized by N K Author Services. I was provided with a copy in exchange for my honest book review. All opinions are my own.
About the book:
Julian Marino has been searching for his Bloodmate forever. He is beginning to lose all hope of finding her. Without his other half Julian feels all alone not sure of his place in this world. Deciding to go see his best friend is a small comfort for him but his respite doesn't last long when an elder of their race asks Julian for help.
A war is brewing, a war which could destroy the entire vampire race if left unchecked. Julian is called to the battle so he must halt his search for the woman he can never forget. In order for him to live he must fight. But when he discovers a Guardian is following him, a protector of their kind, he learns how serious this war is and how dangerous making the wrong decision could be.
I loved the idea of Bloodmates in this novel. It was really different, a step beyond some other stories I've read. It's beyond the usual soul mate. Beyond that immediate feeling of connection. The vampire and their bloodmate have a real need for each other. Bloodmates are actually born to be mated to vampires, and produce additional blood to provide for their mate. They need their vampire mate in order to live a healthy life. The vampire never feels complete without finding their bloodmate to feed from... and the bloodmate will die if their vampire mate doesn't find them. It brought a twist to the vampire story that I felt was really interesting.
There was a lot of back story to this novel. A lot of history, and flashbacks, to catch you up to present story. And, there were a lot of character relationships. I don't know that I felt like I was able to make a real connection with anyone but Julian. But... he was the main character... so I guess it's best I felt for him.
