Review of "The Descendant" by Kelley Grealis

"The Descendant" by Kelley Grealis
Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆

Allison knows that there is something wrong with her but she doesn't know what, her doctor has gone over everything and says that there is nothing wrong with her. Matt and Jenna are worried about Allison's omnipresent sour mood. A mysterious dream that some how imparted temporary serenity upon Allison, the dream is about a garden. Her doctor wants to know if there is something else bothering her, besides the symptoms that brought her here. When Allison was born the doctors told her parents that she was special. Her parents already knew that, it took them 15 years to conceive her. Her father died six years ago from a heart attack and her mother followed three weeks later. Allison and Matt go to Jordana's 16th birthday party, she is in a bad mood funk. When they left to go home they got into a car accident, when she wakes up she was told that Matt died three years ago. Her boyfriend Vincent tells her that she is part vampire, does she believe him?

Allison has had problems with conceiving, she is always really cold in the mornings and really hot at night. She is 32 years old. She always has a need to do something great and to leave it a better place. Matt is Allison's husband, was kidnapped by Vincent. Jenna is Allison's friend. Vincent is a vampire and Allison's boyfriend. Marlo is a vampire and Vincent's sister, tells Allison the truth. Felix is a vampire and Marlo and Vincent's brother. Lorenzo is a vampire and is Felix, Marlo and Vincent's Brother. Lucious is Allison's mortal enemy. Caz works for Lucious. 

I truly loved this book, its very creative and its an emotional roller coaster. I loved how the characters were well developed. This is my first book by Kelley Grealis and it definitely wont be my last. I couldn't put this book down. I loved Kelley's style of writing its a fast paced story. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
