My name is Bianka, and I live in a world a lot like yours. Or at least, I used to.
Then I got harvested.
Taken into eerie darkness underneath the surface of my world, I’ve learned that cities like mine – Hidden Oaks – are just places that the vampires keep humans until it’s time to drink their blood. Now it’s my turn. They’re harvesting me.
But I’m fighting hard, and the vampires have noticed. A sponsor is buying me. A handsome, mysterious vampire with piercing eyes, who wants me to fight other humans in The Vampire Games. If I lose, I’ll be harvested. If I win, I’ll join my sponsor, Phillip, as one of them.
I’ll be turned into a vampire.
All I must do to spend an eternity with Phillip is sell my soul.
The scary part? I’d do a lot worse for him than that.
Bianka is a normal girl, struggling with grades and all until one day, she comes home and her parents hand her off to this weird group of men. She is taken into this new community where humans are harvested and kept as blood bags for hungry vamps. Worst of all? They got her best friend, Marc too.
As Bianka fights to escape and rescue Marc, she is left with only to choices. Loose in the combats against other humans and become a reserve blood bag or win and become a vampire like her hot new sponsor.
The Vampire Games was a quick and easy read. The story wasn't overly complex and the principle was simple enough, it has a lot of The Hunger Games vibe in it.
I liked Phillip a lot, to me his character was the most developed, Bianka i didn't really know her enough to decide how i felt about her.,.the character development was pretty low and so was the world building. It was a good read, but lacked depth and it was quite predictable.
If you're not into insta-love then this book isn't for you, but if you're looking for a fast an easy YA vampire book then definitely check this out! Cause i don't know about you guys but sometimes when you're feeling low and sad, you just really need a cliche book!
