Venomoid by J.A. Kossler


Night Code Saga #1

by J.A. Kossler

22521435In Book One of The Night Code Saga, Venomoid, paranormal creatures are governed by the IPO, a secret police force that ensures vampires, zombies, and others follow all required public safety regulations. Among the officers is 17 year-old Lorin, theIPO's most skilled cadet. His co-workers distrust him, however, and in extreme cases barely tolerate him. As a vampire, he must follow the rules -- including turning a blind eye to the IPO's practice of torturing prisoners -- or face death by sunlight exposure.

On one intense dragon-hunting mission, Lorin encounters Lex, a handsome but flesh-eating paranormal who is quickly intrigued by the young vampire. Lorin fears this hunter, but as an unexpected friendship unfolds between the two, an even more unlikely romance blossoms. The problem is Lex is on the IPO's radar, and when they capture him for scientific experimentation, Lorin must risk his life to overthrow the organization he's always feared in order to save his love.
The synopsis for this book was what pulled me in enough to give it a try.  Who wouldn't want to read a book about a romance between a vampire and a zombie?  Sounds awesome! 
Unfortunately it just didn't hold my interest at all and I kept kind of hoping it would be over soon.  The main characters, Lorin and Lex, didn't have much personality beyond the first few chapters.  I was hoping for more and I was disappointed. 

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for the free review copy.
