The Descendant by Kellie Grealis

Turkey buzzards aren’t the only thing to keep an eye out for in the Hinckley Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks.

The DesendantLocal author, Kellie Grealis, tells the tale of a young woman who is haunted by strange visions, and plagued by physical symptoms that doctors can’t find.
Travel with Allison through the strange world in which she awakens following a devastating car crash.

Allison Carmichael is not satisfied with her mundane existence. She has been told by her parents that she is special and destined for greatness. Rising up the corporate ladder and a happy marriage just aren’t enough to satisfy her. She wants more.

Matt, her husband, cautions her to watch what she wishes for. He thinks she is dissatisfied with her life because they are childless. Allison is disappointed with her inability to have a baby, but that doesn’t explain her other symptoms. She goes to doctor after doctor, and all tell her she is normal. Allison decides she is having a midlife crisis, but she is barely past thirty.

Other forces are at work, which will be reveled in “The Descendant” the first book in Kelley’s vampire trilogy. Could all Allison’s problems be traced back to a biblical ancestor? Pick up a copy to find out.

I highly recommend this book to those who would like a twist on the old vampire tales. The Descendant rates a strong 4.3 on my Book-O-Meter. Age appropriate for readers 14 and up.
