The Vampire's Hope

Is there a place for hope in the world?

Ellie Smith, an emotionally stunted dancer, finds more than she bargains for after her human life is taken by the vampire, Master Liam.  Once inside the Vampire’s underground lair, the Keres Den, she meets Ian, an immortal Viking warrior, who is infiltrating the soulless prison.

As Ellie begins her training, she learns that the dark tunnels around her are filled with even darker secrets.  As the truth of her existence come to light, she is faced with a choice—does she let her past dictate her future, or can she begin to feel again?

The Vampire’s HopeOctober 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A short, very quick and different vampire read. It was very vivid, creative and for a short it was written very complete. There are no questions as to the why or how. It’s all in there within the 40 pages that are written. That takes a great amount of skill in my eyes.
Ellie is taken by complete surprise when trying for a job as a dancer. Thinking she just has to show what she’s made of then BAM! Her life is changed completely and forever. She’s strong, alone and does not feel emotions, but ends up finding out how and why in the long run. Basically being held captive to the master vampire that has turned her, she finds a friend of sorts. Someone she feels she can trust and trust is not something Ellie does.
Ian is doing his part as the master vampire’s servant. Little does anyone know that he’s really there to get information on the horde of vampires that live there so that they can be stopped from destroying human lives any longer. He meets Ellie the night she’s trying for a job and witnesses her attack by the master vampire Liam and is unable to do anything because of the importance of his position. He’s determined to keep Ellie on the side of good and have her as his, forever.
Ellie and Ian are an extremely sweet couple that I was glad to see matched. They each have a spark of hope due to the others presence and they go through a couple of very scary situations but always have one another’s back.
Anyone looking for a short and quick vampire read will enjoy this original work by Danica Winters :)

The Vampire’s Hope
Elpis or Ellie as she liked to be called has had a ruff life. Abandoned at birth and living in the foster care system, then dropping out of school living on her own. She has had to do untold things for scraps to get by and works from job to job where she can find any work. She notices two large men looking at her. The blond, who looks like a viking, approaches her and talks with her. Ellie knows what he wants. Her main problem is she feels she has no heart. She feels nothing, so when danger approached, she had no clue. The blond man introduces her the the big red head as Master Liam. Ian asked her is she would dance with him. She agrees knowing it will end with some kind of payment for something she will do, but again she could use the money. As the two of them dance, he slowly gets her into a dark corner and bites her. She struggles in vain, and dies. Waking up to a new life didn’t really change much. She was a lot stronger and faster but still felt nothing. After a short time learning how to be a vampire, Ian comes to her again. Ian makes her feel, something she has never felt. Does he actually care for her? Is this love? Hope? Ellie learns the true plans of both Master Liam and Ian. Can “hope” change her fate and save millions of innocents? Can just a short time with Ian change so much?
This is a story of a lost soul. Ellie comes from a bad background and is not really living, even when her heart is beating. It is ironic that she doesn’t learn how until she dies and becomes a vampire. Ian has a plan of his own. He has a mission to complete with or without Ellie. As Ian, Master Liam has a evil plan he is leading all his own. He just plans on using Ellie in a different way than Ian. The story is complex for a short book. You want to know how Ellie became so lost? And what draws Ian to Ellie so strongly? Overall the story is a good vampire romance. Lots of action and some blood and violence keep the pace moving very fast. So no sparking vamps here, just the ones that you do not want to meet in a dark alley. This book does contain adult content and violence but nothing too descriptive 16-18 and up depending on maturity.

A Vampires Hope is one of the most interesting vampire stories I’ve read recently. Ellie and Ian are a great couple. The take on the vampire legend is fresh and new. The story flows flawlessly and completely to a satisfying end. I highly recommend Ms. Winters story.

Danica Winters never fails to amaze and delight with her unusual perspectives, imaginative twists and captivating characters. Vampire’s Hope leaves a reader with wonderings and what-if’s and made me want the story to go on and on!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Vampire’s Hope Review,October 11, 2012
This review is from: The Vampire’s Hope (Kindle Edition)

The Vampire’s Hope is a short kind of story — very quick about this girl Ellie who gets turned into a vampire and is thrown into a unknown world where suddenly she is their most prized possession — even though she has no clue why. She meets Ian, there who also changes her perspective. Also, I know I do mostly young adult, but this is not young adult! Winters is a romance writer, and this is for the older side of the young adult spectrum.
Even though it was short, Danica Winters has such a way with words that it told a full story, and had a little bit of a message. It was beautifully written, and the characters were crafted nicely in so little words. I thought it was a great little read and is definitely worth checking out!

I had the chance to read an advance copy of this novella and I absolutely fell in love. It is just one of those books that you can’t get out of your mind long after you are done reading. The premise of this story from Greek mythology is fascinating. The characters are strong and written well. Another great book by Danica Winters! I loved this book!

I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Ms. Winter’s narrative description of the setting, the mythology behind the premise, and the characters is well drawn, clever, and filled with marvelous imagination. As with all her previous stories, Winters give the reader wonderfully complex and compelling protagonists and antagonists. Ian and Ellie are easy to care about and to cheer for. This has great potential for a series.
