Blog Tour: Being Human by Patricia Lynne - Review & Giveaway


Thanks for stopping by the blog for my Tour Stop for
Being Human by Patricia Lynne hosted by Ever After PR!

You'll also have a chance to win an e-book of Being Human!

For Tommy, there is only one thing he needs to do: survive.

Only surviving isn't that easy. The hunt for blood can be tricky when humans know to fear the night. Desire sits on the edge of his mind, urging him to become the monster humans think he is. Vampire Forces, a special branch of police, is determined to turn every vampire to ash. Tommy included.

The only human Tommy can trust is his twin brother. A bond connects them, and with Danny's help, Tommy starts to understand the human world he struggles to survive in. He'll learn what friendships means and feel the sting of betrayal, find that sometimes the worst monsters are very human, and come to understand that family means more than blood.

Tommy just wants to survive and he knows what he needs to do. But with the number of humans that mean more to him than a meal growing, he'll learn there's more to life than simple survival. He'll discover being human doesn't mean being a human.

The review was done simply because we support and believe in the author's works**

I was not quite sure what to expect when I started reading this book.  Sure, I struggled along in the beginning…questioning what the author was doing, why the characters did what they did, acted the way they did, spoke the way they did…but that line of questioning sure didn’t last long!  I found myself completely immersed in this world!  A world where we see the world through the eyes of a newly made vampire, and let me tell you…it was pretty darn interesting!

Patricia Lynne gives us a very believable insight on the thought process of a new vampire by the name of Tommy, and how he struggles with the loss of his humanity.  The one person who is helping him in holding on to what little humanity he has left (if any) is his twin brother Danny.  What I really enjoyed about this book was how we see how much Tommy still care for his twin and what he would do, and just how far he would go save the only family he has left.
Lynne’s writing is fantastic, and provides the right amount of description and feeling that will capture the reader’s attention, and hold it.  There is so much emotion poured into the pages of Being Human that there are parts where readers may relate.   I did go through many emotions in this book, but the two that really came out strong was anger and sadness.  Reading about how the human’s felt about vampires and comparing that to the feelings of Tommy was simply heart breaking at times.
The book is divided up into 4 parts where we see the start of Tommy and his brother where we are introduced to the brothers and learn just how important they are to each other.  The second part shows us the struggles that Danny has in college with have a vampire for a brother, and Tommy’s struggles with understanding Danny’s need for a normal life.  The third part shows us more of what humanity Tommy has left in him, and his attempts in trying to understand what he’s feeling.  This part was the most intense for me, and you will see exactly why when you grab your own copy!  And the forth part, well, let’s just say that tears were shed…
Fans of the vampire genre will come to appreciate what Patricia Lynne has written and will get a firsthand glimpse of what the world looks like through the eyes of a vampire.

My first vampire story was Interview with a Vampire and for some reason while I was reading your review, it reminded me of that. It sounds good. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

I haven't finished reading this book and find myself having a hard time. It is not because of the writing, far from it. The book is haunting and disturbingly sad. I feel SO horrified for these two boys. Having read this I think I will be pushing on through. Thanks for posting this! I am about 65% of the way through.
