Hive Trilogy, Tome 1 : Ash



Description ajoutée par ness86 2015-12-27T20:49:31+01:00

Résumé

Are you an Ash?

*Increased stamina

*Lack of appetite

*Anger outbursts

*Insatiable thirst

*Beauty & Strength

*Male

Call the hotline if these symptoms come on suddenly!

Turns out Charlie Bennet was all of those things except the last. Don’t let the name fool you, Charlie was all woman and she wanted nothing to do with the ash … until the day she found out she was one.

It all started when infected bats bit a small group of humans and created what are now called vampires. Then, the male vampires knocked up some female humans and the result was a gorgeous race of all male ash. Superhuman freaks that had looks to kill.

Charlie is the first female ash, aka unicorn of the Hive – the gated compound in Portland that the humans have designated to isolate vampires and ash from society.

Problem? The Hive is full and only a select few will be allowed to live there. To live at all, really. If Charlie wants to earn the right to become a citizen of the Hive, she will have to survive the culling – a series of fights to the death. And guess what? Just because she’s a girl doesn’t mean she’ll get special treatment.

Good thing there’s Ryder, the mysterious lead ash enforcer, who seems to always have her back. But when secrets bubble to the surface, it will take more than one guy to save her.

Chapter 1

Rounding the corner of the path, I pushed myself harder, red and gold fall trees blurring in my peripherals as my legs demolished the last mile of my run. I was totally going to break my record. My best time so far was five miles in thirty minutes. I was so beating that today.

I breathed deeply, finishing the last few yards at a slow jog, and as I glanced down at my watch, I had to stop for a second before looking closer.

Twenty-five minutes ... Okay, that's ridiculous.

I'd only started running a year ago ... after that night, the night when everything in my word changed. Since then - running, selfdefense, gun training - I wouldn't be a victim again, that was for damn sure. But to be smashing out five miles in twenty-five minutes - I wasn't even breathing hard. Not exactly normal.

As I jogged up the steps into my dorm building, a breeze ruffled my long black hair, refreshing against the light sweat I'd worked up. It was late September; the fall days were beautiful and it was just starting to get cool at night.

Pushing open the door, I crossed the common room quickly and hopped up the three sets of stairs to reach my room. My university, Portland State (PSU), was in northwest Portland, which happened to be my home town. I would have loved to have gone to college in New York or LA, but we couldn't afford it and I couldn't leave my mom. I was almost finished now though; this was my last year - four years of majoring in marketing. God knows why I chose that. I was twenty-one and still had no clue what I really wanted to be when I grew up. Everyone else I knew had the next ten to twenty years of theirs lives mapped out. Me? I had nothing. So for now, marketing seemed like a good ticket to an interesting job.

"...totally and ash. They were fucking gorgeous."

Two girls pushed past me going in the opposite direction, their voices loud and excited as they chatted about the newest batch of ashes at our university. Personally, the vampire/human hybrids didn't do ti for me, but I was in the minority there. The blond girl giggled, and I kind of wanted to bitch-slap her.

Une belle surprise !

Même si le sujet des vampires est vu et revu, Les personnages que présentent l'auteur équilibrent la banalité du sujet. L'histoire est bien écrite et nous donne envie de continuer sans nous arrêter. Je suis impatiente de lire la suite.

Ce roman est vraiment pas mal : une héroïne unique et pleine d'humour face à sa situation, des rebondissements et une histoire bien ficelée !
