In The Charmed—Book One of The Charmed Trilogy—Olivia Ann Greyson sees only one future for herself—to compose and perform the music she has loved since she was a child. But that future changes in an instant when a commuter train taking her to the city crashes and is attacked by, unbelievably, a coven of vampires! As the rabid creatures feed their thirst on the surviving passengers, Olivia is spared from an unthinkable fate because of the intervention of another vampire—Caleb Wolfe, a figure from her past who, for reasons he doesn’t understand himself, would do anything to protect her.
After one familiar touch, Olivia recognizes the man behind the vampire. Soon love, and a powerful supernatural connection, begins to grow between them. But with that connection Olivia starts to notice starling changes happening within herself, and violent events make it clear that the vampire coven which wanted her the night of the train crash won’t stop until they have her.
Time is running out for Olivia and Caleb to discover why all this is happening. And the answers they find may painfully tear their new love apart.

The Charmed was a really excellent read. I read somewhere that Vampires are no longer in…I say you to those folks, read this book….no, you probably should read this series. Christine Wenrick had me totally invested in her story of  Dhampir's, Vampires, Demons and more. Granted the story was a little long in the tooth in the beginning, as in...it took way too long to find out exactly what Olivia was and I also felt there was some over descriptions in the story . It still was an awesome read and Ms. Wenrick has a fan here.

I liked the relationship that was created between Olivia and Caleb (even though Olivia was a bratty brat at times), I still enjoyed the love that grew almost instantly between them...this is another book were insta-love just fits. Olivia finds her life is turned upside down when she discovers that Vampires exist and that her existence may turn out to be the end of them all…including the Vampire she has come to love with all her heart…Caleb. She soon discovers that her "normal" life isn't so exactly normal.

The world building was fun to read and the characters were an unexpected delight. I'm looking forward to see where Olivia & Caleb take me next.

So...borrowing a thought from my blogger buddy over at Herding Cats & Burning Soup, I decided to add a theme song or a song inspired thought to my reviews. I'm starting with this one & this song came to mind...



This is part of the Charmed Trilogy Tour...
