SNAP SERIES by Michele Drier: REVIEW of SNAP: THE WORLD UNFOLDS and Book Launch Celebration of SNAP: NEW TALENT



MY REVIEW:

Stephanie Meyer is not the only writer that is able to create a vampire story that is both compelling and addicting.  Drier creates a world where vampires and humans live and work alongside one another, but the humans are not always aware. 

Maxie enters a new job and a whole new world opens up as well.  Is she ready to face what she learns and enjoy the spoils that go with her new life? Will love trump danger?  And now you may want to read SNAP: New Talent!  I even had one woman who writes medieval romance (and said she never reads vampires) tell me that she got so hooked she was rooting for Jean-Louis to turn Maxie!  Does he? 
   
The story is fun, with an original love story that keep you turning pages!  I rate it 4 stars and recommend it to readers who love light vampire romance.   


ABOUT THE BOOK:

SNAP, a multinational celeb TV show and magazine, is the holy grail for Maxie Gwenoch. When she snags the job as managing editor, she's looking for fame, fortune and Jimmy Choos. What she finds is a media empire owned by Baron Kandesky and his family. A family of vampires. They're European, urbane, wealthy and mesmerizing. And when she meets Jean-Louis, vampire and co-worker, she's a goner.

The Kandesky vampire family rose in Hungary centuries ago. They gave up violence and killing to make a killing on the world's commodities markets and with that beginning they built SNAP, an international celebrity multimedia empire. Now cultured...and having found food substitutes for killing...they’ve cornered the world market for celebrity and gossip journalism.

They haven't fully left the past behind. Their Hungarian neighbors and rival vampire clan, the Huszars are starting to ramp up attacks, maybe looking to start a war to take over all the Kandeskys have built.

Maxie believes she's found her ultimate career. She doesn't realize that she's found a family feud like none other, a centuries-old rivalry between vampire families, with her as the linchpin. Bells ring with Jean-Louis, but she doesn’t realize they’re alarm sirens until she learns that Jean-Louis is second in command of the Kandeskys...but by then it's too late.

In the second book of the SNAP Kandesky vampire series, Maxie Gwenoch, media-savvy editor of the multinational celeb gossip magazine SNAP, is pummeled in Paris and kidnapped in Kiev as the Huszars ramp up the race to oust their centuries-old rivals, the Kandeskys.

SNAP’s owners, the Kandesky family of vampires, built the world’s most popular celeb coverage empire but this isn’t just a business take-over. These powerful vampire families lived with an uneasy peace for four centuries until Maxie came in to boost SNAP’s coverage and started making inroads into the Huszar’s traditional hunting territories.

Although Jean-Louis, Maxie’s lover, vampire and second-in-command of the Kandeskys, tries to keep her safe, Maxie is determined to do things her way, a way that may lose her her job, her love and her life.
