Wombstone Blog Tour

I am so excited to be a part of this blog tour. I loved this book so much and I can't wait to tell you all about it in my review. But first let's get to know more about the author Jessica first.

Jessica Roscoe is the author of Wombstone, a Young Adult paranormal novel. From a young age, she delighted in the written word and would often scare her poor parents with outlandish stories filled with the supernatural and macabre.
Jessica studied film and screenwriting at university before deciding that novels were her calling. The setting for Wombstone was inspired by a six-month stint in the U.S. where she worked as a lifeguard at a summer camp in Mt Freedom, New Jersey. She is currently working on the next book in the Vampireland series. Her other loves in life include good quality tea, delicious wine, reading and hanging out with her husband and baby girl.

Mia Blake wasn’t the first girl that was taken by the vampires.
She had heard all about the girls who were missing, and even though they were only “missing”, she knew in her heart that those girls were dead.
She felt sad for them, sure. But more than that, she felt glad that they had been strangers – not someone she knew, and certainly not her. Things like that didn’t happen to girls like her.
They always happened to someone else, and that’s why she barely blinked as she made her way across an empty football field, through a deserted parking lot, to meet a fate she had arrogantly assumed was reserved for other people.
She was a stupid girl.
She paid for it.

Wake up.

Those were the first words I ever heard.

I opened my eyes. Naked save for a bloodied white sheet, my tender skin covered in sticky red blood. My broken body somehow – impossibly – repairing itself.
I tried to turn my head to the side, to see where I was, and groaned in pain. Staying still felt better. I was sticky and bruised. My body was fighting hard to mend all the deep gashes and crushed bones. I lifted an arm and gently felt my eye where I had taken the impact of the unforgiving ground. It was excruciatingly painful to the touch – but it wasn't shattered anymore. It was in one unbroken piece, as if my fall had been a terrible dream. The oddly comforting metallic taste in my mouth told me otherwise, though.
I reached out with my hands, touching stiff sheets. I was hot, but I was shivering, goosebumps lining my arms.
It was so hard to keep my eyes open, but I fought to stay awake. I wasn't dead. I still had something left inside of me. I couldn't give up yet.
A face appeared above me. Something warm and coppery touched my lips.
I did.

My Review:
What a fresh new spin on vampire folklore. I was sucked in from page one and forgot about everything else until the very last page.
 Mia is just your average everyday normal girl. She has heard all about the girls who got taken but she never thought that would happen to her. That is until one night she was the girl who was taken. But her abduction is different with vampires Caleb and Ryan both having plans for her but one decision changes Mia’s whole world. Now she has to make a choice accept the help from the bad guy Ryan to learn all she can or take her chances with the biggest and meanest bad vampire of them all Caleb.
 I loved Mia she is so snarky and just plain awesome. She is defiantly a girl I could see myself friends with. Ryan is the bad guy we all love to hate. But is he really the bad guy? I found myself starting to route for him and wanting Mia to see there is more to him then just the guy who ruined her life. I won’t tell you much more except the ending broke my heart and I am impatiently waiting for book two now.
 With characters you will come to love and find yourself thinking of them as your friends Jessica has written a world  where you will get sucked in and enjoy every minute of it. 5/5 Bloody Fangs
