Sheep Thoughts: PULSE Vampire Series Omnibus Vol. 1 Books 1 – 4 by Kailin Gow

PULSE Vampire Series Omnibus Vol. 1 Books 1 – 4

Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult

This Omnibus contains 4 Full-length Novels in the PULSE Vampire Series, now in development as a Film starting with its Prequel, Mysterious Teacher.

17 year-old Kalina didn’t know her boyfriend was a vampire until the night he died of a freak accident. She didn t know he came from a long line of vampires until the night she was visited by his half-brothers Jaegar and Stuart Greystone. There were a lot of secrets her boyfriend didn t tell her. Now she must discover them in order to keep alive. But having two half-brothers vampires around had just gotten interesting….

Let me start off by coming clean that this is 100% a young adult book. I've read some YA that have a more "adult feel", but this one is way into the whole teen angst and weird teen emo moments. It was a bit much for me, but it might work better for the younger crowd or people who like to read about that age group. 

I only read book one in the series which is called Pulse. While I do love me some vampires, this whole world was just not my cup of tea. This author is going to have some movies hitting the world very soon and I'm sure she will find the right group to market. 

Check other reviews out there, I was not a fan. But that's due to the fact that I could not connect with any of the characters or dialog as a whole. Too much hot/cold teen moments had me rolling my eyes and wanting to end the story as soon as I could.

Pain seared Puck, shoving a roar past his lips. A demon had entered his body, and now tore into his organs. It bit and clawed, too, and yet he experienced no outward signs of injury. Frantic, he dropped his sword to rake his nails over his chest, slicing skin and muscle—to no avail. The creature remained inside him, a dark presence, howling with a toxic mix of hate and pleasure. The blood in Puck’s veins might as well have been fuel; every cell in his body seemed to catch fire, melting him from the inside out as he...changed? Two rings of fire erupted on the crown of his skull, as if circles had been burned into the bone. He reached up and felt...horns? Breath wheezed through clenched teeth as he yanked at hanks of brown fur sprouting on his legs. Next, a hard shell grew over his feet—hooves?—as his leather boots ripped apart at the seams. Changing shapes wasn’t new to him, but this transformation had control of him, not the other way around. He couldn’t stop it. Jagged black lines appeared on his chest, small rivers of lava burning as they spread. An image formed. A butterfly with wings as sharp as shattered glass. Different colors shimmered in the firelight, one after the other, altering as various emotions flooded him. Mostly, panic grabbed Puck by the neck and held firm, choking him. Was this a hallucination, caused by smoke? Or was he becoming a monster for good? His knees gave out, unable to support his weight. As he lay on the ground, panting, the panic died. His gaze landed on the sword, and the pride he’d experienced only moments before faded before disappearing altogether. The devotion he bore for his realm and people...gone. He felt nothing. The sword was a scrap of finely honed metal, the realm a meaningless lo- cation, its citizens a nonentity. Puck searched for emotion, any emotion, hidden anywhere. There! Love for Sin, a shining beacon. He would protect the younger male from this...whatever this was. But, as he attempted to reach for his brother, muscle locked on bone, holding him immobile, and panic returned. “Sin!” Sin wouldn’t meet his gaze. Something’s wrong... A terrible nothingness began to creep through Puck a second time—this one directed at his brother. Precious Sin. Treasured Sin. Puck’s reason for...everything. But an invisible dagger cut into his heart, affection draining out...draining... Still he fought. “Love you,” he rasped. Can’t lose Sin. Can’t... But even as he spoke, his heart emptied. One moment his love blazed, a light inextinguishable by war, persecution or travesty, the next it was nothing but a snuffed-out torch. Puck blinked up at Sin and felt...nothing. He hadn’t forgotten their past, or the many ways his brother had aided him throughout the centuries, or everything Sin had given up on his behalf, but he cared not at all. Muscles unlocking from bone at last, he stood. Silent, he backed away from his brother. He would go for a walk, think about what had happened and what he should do next. “Puck—” He strode out of the tent, never once glancing back.

  1. The books sound really good I've always adored Vampire stories so I'm added these to my wish list.

  2. Thanks for being on the tour! :)

  3. There's only 4 reviews for this set so I looked up the first book. PULSE is described as a Reverse Harem book. How is that possible when it's YA? Plus two males does not make a harem. Mixed messages....

  4. Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed reading the excerpt!

  5. I have always loved vampire books & movies. I believe they were the first paranormal books that I read when I was a much younger girl.
