Tracy Reviews ‘Apparitions’ by Julia Talbot. Published by Changeling Press February 5th 2015, 55 Pages

This book was provided free of charge for an honest review by the publisher. 😉

Why I read this book: My favourite genre is paranormal, I do read a lot of shifter/vampire books and I usually enjoy them.

2347

Synopsis:

Sean has no desire to find love again, not after a terrifying stalker incident ends with his lover, Thom, dead and haunting him as a ghost. Thom thinks Sean needs to start over, though, and places an ad for Sean to find a roommate.

What Sean gets is werewolf Elan, whose pack has sent him off to learn to live in the modern world. Thom doesn’t scare Elan, and neither does the threat of a stalker. Sean can’t help but admire Elan’s brave nature and hot, fuzzy body. One taste of Elan’s blood, and vampire Sean falls hard, but can they deal with an insane vampire and a jealous ghost, on top of being as different from each other as night and day?

*****

This short story starts 5 years before on the night that Seans stalker kills his lover Thom. Sean and the stalker are both vampires, it them jumps to present day.

Sean is lonely, he never goes out, the only person he talks to is a the Ghost of his dead lover. Thom thinks Sean should find a lodger/lover. Elan is a werewolf, alone in a new city, he has no friends knows no one. He receives an email offering him lodgings…

Sean and Elan become friends and lovers. Sean will do anything to keep him safe from his obsessive stalker.

This is rather a strange short story, there are three MC’s, A Vampire, a very jealous Ghost and a Werewolf. The ghost wants to watch, he can’t touch but he wants to. Then we have the Insane Vampire Stalker, who will do anything to have Sean. I didn’t quite get that part. He had only met Sean once, then killed his lover then stalked him for years.

I think my problem with this short story was the fact that it seemed very rushed, there wasn’t enough content within the story and that left me very confused. The cover of the book isn’t to my taste either, it doesn’t seem to fit the short story very well.

Overall an okay short story that I think would have been more enjoyable if there was more detail.

  1. I haven’t read a Julia Talbot book in a very long time. I do love shifter stories and don’t really get to read many books with vampires in it (even crazy stalker ones).

  2. I would think an insane vampire stalker wouldn’t wait five years to take Sean, especially if he killed his lover. Doesn’t make sense to me. Thanks for the review.
