YA Review What Lies Inside by JL Myers

Amelia Lamont never asked to unleash her inner vampire

Amelia’s normal teen world is shattered when a terrifying nightmare awakens the monster inside her. A newfound, insatiable thirst for blood that leads her to drain the school quarterback is only the beginning; she’s horrified to discover that her family and best friend Kendrick have been harboring the secret all along. And is the strangely alluring boy who seems hell-bent on curbing her murderous, blood-filled desires a friend, or foe?

To escape detection Amelia and her twin brother Dorian are forced to move to a new town, and the challenge of a new, exclusive high school where nearly every classmate smells like prey. Including the irresistible Ty, who seems hauntingly familiar, yet darkly menacing …

Amelia’s disturbing dreams and entanglement in a web of forbidden romance render her increasingly powerless against the chilling lies and secrets of vampire power struggles. And, as she soon discovers, vampire politics mixed with outlawed love can be a lethal cocktail.

Falling in love may just cost Amelia everything: her friends, her family…even her life

WOW, a really good one!

How to describe it best? Maybe try this: take a a pint of starcrossed lovers (with the hero and heroine’s species being mortal enemies), a zest of Twillight (our vampire heroine hates the monster she is and fights her bloodlust) and add vampire royalties with an old way of life to the mix.
Shake it and you’ve got the receipt. And it works really, really good!

When Amelia turns sixteen, her unknown vampire legacy manifests itself strongly on one fateful night, deeply frightening her. From that moment on, she’ll try to master her bloodlust and avoid playing crazy killer in class full of classmates whose scents are sweeter than chocolate. Moving with her family, she soon meets Ty, the captain of the swim team whose blood compel her like nothing else. As their relationship evolve into strong feelings, they’ll have to face the animosity of their friends and families and struggle to live their love.

All the characters are interesting and secrets are unravelled throughout the book. The plot is ingenious and treason is present all along. And the end is so tricky you can’t see if our lovebirds will have a future together or not. It keeps you on your knees.

If you’re fans of paranormal novels, you HAVE to read it.

Enjoy!
