Vampires Rule has a concept you don’t see in the typical paranormal book: a young man turns from human to vampire, only to be turned mortal again.  This is an interesting and unusual twist to what we’re used to seeing.  Reading it, however, I was anticipating a little something more.  I would have liked to have seen a little more depth to the characters, such as more description about them and extended background information. It feels like the storyline is slightly rushed, but by the end, I was interested enough to wonder what happens next.

If you are not into the Young Adult genre, this may not be the book for you, but I do feel this book will appeal to young adults who like the genre.  It has things that go bump in the night, such as vampires, werewolves, wraiths and even a fairy.  It has the teenage couple brought together by destiny, and it has adventure.  This is the first book of the series and there is some room for improvement.  All of the elements are there for a great story, but it’s just a little rough around the edges.

They don’t call him Jackpot for nothing. Jack has always beaten the odds… until now. When a werewolf tried to kill him, vampires saved him. When he got tired of life as a vampire, another attack gave him back his mortality. Now Jack just wants to live a normal life, but what’s normal about having a hunter for a girlfriend, a brother who wants to stake him to be on the safe side, and a werewolf building an army to rule the world?
