Review: Spiral X

Spiral X by J. J. Westendarp

Published October 29th 2010
Kindle Edition 200 pages
Source: Received from the Author for a honest review.

"Cheryl Erikson is a Vampire Hunter with a problem. A dangerous new drug named Plast has found its way onto the streets of Dallas. She would prefer to let the DEA and local law enforcement handle everything, but since the dealers also happen to be vampires, she has no choice but to step in and put a stop to it.

With the help of her best friend Virgil and a fellow Hunter named Tank, Cheryl must work to eradicate Plast from the streets of Dallas. It's a task that becomes more difficult as she comes under the gun, quite literally, from a contract out on her head. Coupled with a nosy police detective looking to peg her for a triple homicide, and a sudden interest in her activities from a powerful vampire recently arrived in the area, it's enough to force her to accept help from the least likely of sources, a mysterious Hunter named Rev. Through him, everything she thinks she knows, and everything she stands for, is challenged in ways she never imagined.

- From Goodreads



Never has a book deserved the words "action packed" more! What a roller-coaster of events!

What I enjoyed about this novel was the fact that it played in my head like a movie. The characters were believable, mythology understandable and there were twists and turns around every corner.

The Author being male only helped this novel. He made fight scenes and car chasing scenes believable and understandable. How many times have I read a fight scene where you are not sure what is happening and just go through it to see the end result? Too many to mention. But not this one!

Definitely a must read if you are tired of paranormal romance and love triangles of which this book has none. Thank the heavens!

It has a kick-ass heroine that has lost some motivation along the way, which only makes her human. She makes mistakes which is always a welcome change from the "I am the perfect heroine" scenario. Each character has depth and they are all fascinating!

I can't wait to find out what happens to Cheryl and I hope we get to see more of Rev.

Keep an eye out for "Lauren and Lu's Review" on this novel.

I looked at him, and asked, "What have I gotten from you?"
Without missing a beat, he said, "A well defined fashion sense."

"I give to you the breath of life, so that you may live to fight on."
