At Saltwater Vampires by Kirsty Eagar


June 13, 2014 by Heidi

I’ve been threatening to take Saltwater Vampires on my annual October trip to Miami for a couple of years now, but it was finally busted out as the first book of the summer when I was craving none other than some weird combo of beach reads and horror.  And why yes, Kirsty Eagar fit the bill nicely.

  1. I saw you post this on Instagram and immediately wanted it for the cover alone. So it was only so-so? Bummer. You must try vampires in a trashy regency romance novel next. I mean REALLY, Heidi.

      Isn’t the cover awesome?! I love it. But yeah, only so-so overall. I will try trashy vampire regency romance next. I swar!

  2. That makes me sad that this didn’t live up to expectations. I also totally did not know that you were writing at Tor! Yay!

    • Heidi says:

      I am! Yay indeed! But yeah, it didn’t live up to expectations for me. Others have enjoyed it more than I did though. I’m still curious about her contemporary work.
