Book Review: Conversion by S.C. Stephens

Conversion  - S.C. Stephens

This is another vampire story (or perhaps maybe only “a little bit vampire” since Teren, the hero, is only “a little bit vampire”). Conversion by S.C. Stephens is an interesting take on vampires; one where humans and vampires can date and conceive. I must say I’m not a big vampire fan, even though I did read Twilight, but I did find the idea of this book interesting.

In Conversion, vampires generally live and look like humans. Well more so for the part vampires, like Teren. He lives in the city, San Francisco, after all. They just age slower and are a bit more pale apparently. Oh and they have enhanced physical abilities and don’t eat regular food either. The idea of a family of vampires owning a ranch was also very clever. I think it’s interesting how they can drink blood from their spouses and yet not kill or infect them. Apparently though not all humans are fond vampires as is apparent in their need to stay hidden and the unexpected twist at the end.

So the overall idea was very clever and the twist sure kept me on my toes. One thing I wasn’t fond of was Emma, the heroine. Some of her actions and thoughts were really not all that smart. I often had “she did not just do/say that” moments with her.

Overall it was an interesting and entertaining read. I’ll be considering whether or not to read the next book in the series. I’d like to see how Tegen and Emma’s life progresses considering their new circumstances. However, I don’t know if I can handle any more “she did not just do/say that” moments from Emma. We shall see.
