Reign of Blood by Alexia Purdy

My name is April Tate and my blood is the new gold. Vampires and 
hybrids have overrun my world, once vibrant with life, but now a 
graveyard of death shrouded in shadows. I fight to survive; I fight for 
my mother and brother. The journey is full of turns that I am quite unprepared for. And I'm just hoping to make it to the next Vegas sunrise..."

In a post-apocalyptic world, a viral epidemic has wiped out most of the earth’s population, leaving behind few humans but untold numbers of mutated vampires. April is a seventeen-year-old girl who lives in the remains of Las Vegas one year after the outbreak. She has become a ferocious vampire killer and after her family is abducted, she goes searching for them. What she finds is a new breed of vampire, unlike any she has seen before. Unsure of whom she can trust, she discovers that her view of the world is not as black and white as she once thought, and she's willing to bend the rules to rescue her family. But in trying to save them, she may only succeed in bringing her fragile world crashing down around her.

My Review

In a world where vampires rule the earth, humans are few and far between. April is one of those few along with her mom and brother who has managed to stay alive.  Little does April know is that her blood is not normal and it is because of that she is still alive.   Over the year in which the vampires have taken over, she has become a great vampire killer.   Things are going well (or at least as well as it can go in the world) until her mom and brother go missing and April goes out looking for them.  It is now that she realizes that everything isn’t as it seems and her world isn’t as strong as she thought it was.

This is the start of a very interesting series.  April is a strong willed girl who will stand up to any vampire in order to survive.   Her family is what is left of her life and she will do anything to find them after they go missing.   April has learned a lot over the year since world changed however she is learning that there is a lot left to learn.  For a young girl April is a great character and I look forward to seeing her growth over the series as well as what is in store for her now that she knows that her blood is special.
