Three siblings. An endless list of victims. A whole lot of time to kill.

* * *

With two specimens of the undead on either side of her, Juliana knew there was no escape. Kill the one they had selected for her, or be killed, and become one of them. What had the neighbours in the road called them, back when their childhood pranks were just that?

Oh yes, she remembered now. Murderous Little Darlings. They had the faces of angels, but possessed the very soul of the Devil.

Marcus had fully embraced his vampire side from the moment he was born. Rocco was the second eldest, and had fought the temptation all of his life. Then Marcus finally broke him.

That just left Juliana. Will she resist them, or join in the hunt?

(A Tale of Vampires #1)

Murderous Little Darlings (A Tale of Vampires, #1)I guess we can expect the unexpected from John Hennessy! Murderous Little Darlings had so many twists and sharp turns that I was left with my head spinning and this strange thirst for…more!

Three siblings, are they all vampires or not? Is Marcus, the oldest triplet truly a vampire from birth? Is Rocco fighting the urge? Is Juliana denying her heritage? Or is there something completely different going on that will change everything for these three?

You want a fresh look at YA vampires? Looking to avoid going over totally to the dark side of things that go bump in the night? This could be your next great read. John Hennessy has woven a plot that is intriguing, not too dark and to be honest, these kids act like real siblings, bickering among themselves, yet loyal to each other when danger threatens. How far will they go to keep each other safe? Will they embrace the vampiric lifestyle or is there something more ahead for them? Yep, I’m hooked on this little novella with the punch of a tome, thanks to the clever writing style of this author.
