Reign of Blood by Alexia Purdy
"Reign of Blood" had so much promise and started off strong. The main character, April is a young teen age girl who lives with her mother and young brother. As, far as they know, they are the only humans, in their city that have survived the vampire plague.
On a trip to collect supplies, April's family goes missing. She makes it her mission to find them and along the way finds a hybrid vampire who can tolerate sunlight. He promises to help her get her family back and takes her to his underground home.
He of course has an alliterative motive --- and then this is where the book falls apart, however Purdy puts some twist into it that pull the storyline out of the shadows and just saves the book from complete failure.
There is a great deal of action but many of the connections between characters are weak and the storyline doesn't execute.
