Keisha is a neurobiology researcher determined to discover the secret to intelligence to save humanity from itself. What she learns leads her to realize a bigger threat comes from beyond the stars. Yuri is a Russian vampire whose long-dead feelings respond to the scientist whose brain he admires but whose curves he can't resist. Will his love reach the places in her heart that she has ignored for so long? And can they defeat the prophecy of the undead to find happiness sharing eternity?

Sexxy's Thoughts

I wasn't immediately enthralled with Prophecy of the Undead. There is however, enough of an story here to keep you interested.
One hundred and fourty-three pages on my NOOK and I thought it was an okay read. Keisha and Yuri were good enough characters, but I'm afraid this story didn't power out my NOOK. Ms. McGier's world buiilding is enough to keep you reading, but I'm afraid the characters in these pages were just as my rating indicated "Good Enough".
The thing with Novella's  is that they can have just enough to make you want to possibly keep reading more books from the author or there's that dreaded thing with novella's when the story is cut and you feel like you are missing out of something vital.
It's how I felt with this book. So while the characters where interesting enough and there's a plot that is exciting enough...there is just not enough of the story for me. I wanted more. This is not to knock Ms. McGire's work, I think she did a fantastic job. And my thoughts here may not necessarily reflects someone else's.
You do have the hot sexxy vampire and then there is the different female heroine  She's of color and shapely. It's just my opinion that all vamps do not have to pale and thin.

About Your Author
Fiona has always had stories in her head...voices telling her about their lives.  She used to think that everyone walked around being entertained by characters in romance novels.  When she started writing her novels, she found that finishing a book meant that those characters stopped talking...but then others started demanding their time.  She figures that in order to tell all of the stories, she'll need to live to about 150!

  1. Thanks for the kind words. I'm glad to hear that you want to read more, since there's a sequel that will be out in February. It will continue the action that started with this book.

  2. Hmm. Honest review, thanks :) I agree, with novella's, it's always a hit or miss. And usually it's a miss with me. But, I do gather my reins and push on to the next book. That's usually when I decide when I've had enough of it. lol.

  3. P.S. your rafflecopter so isn't working right now :( maybe it's just my page? *sigh*

  4. Your welcome Fiona & I'm looking forward to the new book :)

  5. was I too harsh? I hope not :) I feel the same way about novella's & I know they're like popular now...It really a a good book, but like I said too short.

    thanks for stopping by Ana

  6. it was me...I fixed it..not go enter...PLEASE :)

  7. Nope, I don't think you were harsh at all. It was a good review :) And very honest! I like that.... I have that problem with shorts. I mean 100+ is better than 50-60pages, but again, it can get too crowded and sometimes, hell, most of the time, I feel the characters are way underdeveloped. Doesn't mean the storyline is great, it's just the characters that bring the whole thing tumbling down for me.

    You're welcome girly. You know I love to stalk your salaciously sezzy page ;)


  8. awww..thanks for stalking me :)

    your are so right about Novellas's ..and your right, it's a hit or miss with them *sigh*
