In this story, you do have vampires, witches, and vampire hunters. There is even a love triangle with a few vamps, so it is sort of like a Peyton Place for the walking dead. It does have a newly turned vamp who needs to master the art of being a vampire and find who it is she can trust and not trust. It is written without the use of over descriptions, so it is an easy read. Books that are too flowery lose my attention, so this writing style suited me just fine. If you want every last detail and 50 pages to describe the curtains, this is not the book for you. There were a couple things I wanted to find out, so I look forward to the next book to hopefully give me the answers I seek. For a first time author, this is a fairly decent read.
I do not think the cover does this book justice, and perhaps not even the title. To me the cover looked a little cartoon-ish and has Egyptians symbols which has nothing to do with the story. Add that to the "Purple Dragon" title and it sounds rather childish. I think a more "frightening" cover would bring across the vampire feel.
A. Green grew up in New Mexico and Connecticut with her two sisters, father, and grandmother. Her father always read Stephen King books, which inspired her to also read them and she fell in love. In elementary school she began writing in her school notebooks. By the time she finished writing her story, it was seven notebooks long. After sharing it with her friends, the notebooks ended up lost. But she kept writing. In high school she was on the newspaper committee, one of the few freshman on the committee. By the time she was almost 25 she had written tons of short stories but none she was satisfied with until finally she wrote "Purple Dragon" with illustration help from Cordelia McLellan, her overseas friend. She is now working on the second book in the "Purple Dragon" series and hopes to get it out to the public as soon as she can
