I want to say that this book has put a dynamic aspect to the world of vampires. Before reading this book I was used to the one dimensional "vampires" and that was it, just vampires. I haven't come across a book that dives into the different kinds of vampires. With Egyptian mythology, diverse characters, and a world-ending prophecy, The Vampire Wars is a rare gem in the world of Young Adult Fiction.
All Dea had to worry about was college and her mother. She had no idea that she was in the center of a vampire war that is brewing around her. She's been having dreams about her past and future, the end of man and a mysterious vampire that could possibly be the key to unlocking her past. One night she is saved by a group of vampires who are sworn to protect her from the Apophi, a ruthless race of vampires who want to end humanity. Dea's blood is the key to the success of the Apophi. But Dea will not give up her blood, her life, or those she loves to the Apophi The Vampire Wars puts a fresh perspective of what loyalty means.
All the characters have a personality. This might seem like a silly statement but I have read countless books where the major characters evolve and the minor characters are left out. But Katie Davies does a wonderful job giving life and personality to every character. Also, each character is diverse, all coming from different backgrounds: British, American, Japanese, Spanish, Indian and African. The differences are apparent with the character's actions and speech.
I really love how this book really dives into the subject of vampires. I love how Egyptian mythology was so intricately woven throughout the book. Dea's blood is really the key to the destruction of man because of the prophecy. *I won't go into depth about the prophecy, you must read the book to find out :)* There are so many magical elements and mythology that I'm so happy that I got the chance to read this book.
I highly recommend this book to those who want vampires and mythology intricately woven together with strong characters and a prophecy that could just possibly end humanity. The Vampire Wars is a rare find in the world of YA. I can't recommend it enough.
