5 stars for Another Sunny Day by @dkjanotta #paranormal #vampirethriller #bookreview

Title: Another Sunny Day (Fifty Percent Vampire series Book 2)

Author: D.K. Janotta

Genre: Young Adult Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Vampires

Book Blurb:


Transfigurations, condemnations, lamentations…

Astrid’s eccentric mother has disappeared without trace, abandoning her only daughter to negotiate miles and miles of dangerous forest to reach safety. Astrid and her new boyfriend Mike track runaway Mom from San Francisco to a spooky castle in deepest Transylvania, meeting several unexpected and mostly hostile relatives along the way. The castle holds a dark secret, too bloodcurdling to describe here. Suffice it to say that there are no longer any teenage girls in the village below the castle. Alive, that is. And to make matters even worse, civil war appears to have broken out, with foreign visitors at the top of everyone’s hit list. Incredibly suspenseful and romantic, full of surprising twists and turns, Another Sunny Day depicts the riveting continuation of Astrid’s epic struggle to find out who she really is and who she really wants to be.

D. K. Janotta has done it again – Another Sunny Day is a triumphant follow-up to Book One, Fifty Percent Vampire.

My Review:

Astrid’s mother, Ophelia, has vanished into thin air, which normally isn’t a big feat for a vampire but Astrid’s worried. She and her boyfriend, Mike, pick up the scent and leave sunny San Francisco for gloomy Transylvania. Astrid meets family members and relatives who warn her to turn around and go back home but she ignores them all. What do they know? She’s reckless and as a result, puts Mike’s life and others she cares about in danger. Greed, wealth, and power are at risk and those in charge don’t want to relinquish anything to a half-human, half-vampire girl. The only thing Astrid knows for sure is she must stop the king at the familial castle before he makes sure no human will ever see another sunny day.

Another Sunny Day is an edge of your seat vampire thriller. From the beginning, there’s an understated grittiness woven throughout the story, which was absent from the first book, Fifty Percent Vampire. Astrid’s growth from teen to a woman is impressive yet 100% believable. She learns some hard lessons which made for an exciting read. The plot moves at a good pace overall with plenty of suspense to keep you entertained. The plot twists surprised me, and I honestly didn’t see them coming. The action scenes captured my attention and I whipped through the pages so I could see what happened next. Who needs sleep when there’s more reading to do? I thoroughly enjoyed this sequel and actually prefer it to book one. If you’re like me and like your vampire stories dark and edgy, you’ll love Another Sunny Day. I look forward to reading more from D.K. Janotta. Highly recommend!
