I was fornate to be part of the Blog Tour for Jennifer Malone Wright's The Birth Of Jaiden.
The Birth Of Jaiden is a epic not run of the mill vampire story, but one that keeps you on you edge of your seat wanting more!
Book Blurb- Long ago, a prophecy was foreseen. A child would be born, a child who held the power to destroy the world. Now, it is up to Alexander Lucas, a one-hundred-year-old vampire, to keep the baby girl safe from his arch enemy Malcolm. In order to save her, Alexander must raise the child as his own. Will he be able to resist his vampire tendencies to care for a human baby? With the help of the wisest of the supernatural, an organization called The Great Council, Alexander must face many battles to ensure the safety of this very special child.
When I read about the Birth of Jaiden, I knew that I just hads to read it for two reasons. One being that right now I am throughly enjoying Vampire themed books at the moment, The other was a more personal reason and that was because to of the characters where named after my nieces Jaiden (spelled Jadyn) and Isabella. I know this is a very kooky reason but it's true.
I feel that Jennifer Wright did a surperb job with her first novel and I actually can not wait to read more from her. As I started reading this book I naturally thought that it was going to be the typical vampire love story that that we all have come to know. I was surprised and glade that I was. The main character Alex was a vampire but he wasn't the typical teen vampire but was a adult who had been through life as a mortal and have lived. This to me was refreshing because although I do enjoy the teen vampire love story I always kinda feel sorry for the vampires that have not got out of their teen years. Another aspect of the book that is totality going against the traditional vampire story line ifs that Alex although he is a vampire he belives in God, and that belief in God is what gets him through what he knows he needs to do but he rather not. The one thing that made me fall in love with Alex ( and yes to me he would be the perfect guy, if there was such a thing, and I wouldn't even care that he was a vampire) was the fact that Alex really didn't care about killing and did it out of only neccasity.
That was one ofthe things that I liked about this book and probably the thing that I had most about the Birth Of Jadien that I dislike the most. Because there are sereval scenes that are really graphic when Alex makes his kill. Although at times I could have did without those graphic scences. I relize why Wright put them there. And without them in my opionion ther book would have really been lacking something.
I really enjoyed The Birth Of Jaiden by Jennifer Malone Wright and hope that we see more amazing novels from her.
