Here's a book review from Jennifer Warrick Davis-Mystical World of Books and Reviews
Reign of Blood
Alexia Purdy

Book Blurb:"Never tease anything that wants to eat you. My name is April Tate and my blood is the new gold. Vampires and hybrids have overrun my world, once vibrant with life, but now a graveyard of death shrouded in shadows. I fight to survive; I fight for my mother and brother. The journey is full of turns that I am quite unprepared for. And I'm just hoping to make it to the next Vegas sunrise..."

In a post-apocalyptic world, a viral epidemic has wiped out most of the earth’s population, leaving behind few humans but untold numbers of mutated vampires. April is a seventeen-year-old girl who lives in the remains of Las Vegas one year after the outbreak. She has become a ferocious vampire killer and after her family is abducted, she goes searching for them. What she finds is a new breed of vampire, unlike any she has seen before. Unsure of whom she can trust, she discovers that her view of the world is not as black and white as she once thought, and she's willing to bend the rules to rescue her family. But in trying to save them, she may only succeed in bringing her fragile world crashing down around her.

Jen's Review: 5 Stars
I was given an e-copy from the author in exchange for my honest review. I have been wanting to read the book for some time now, I have heard great things and love the cover, but I tend to let requested reviews come before my personal tbr pile. I had a total squeal moment when I was asked to review it. A win win for me.

The story is about a vampire apocalypse. A epidemic wipes out most of the human population. April, her mother, and younger brother, are the last known, as far as they know of, human race in Las Vegas. April is seventeen and finds herself having to fight for herself and her family to survive in this world, what is left of it anyway. She stumbles into some major obstacles along the way, and has to learn to cope, even if it is against her better judgement. She finds out that with everything she has learned over the past year may not be enough, she is still in the dark about a lot of things, stuff that might just make or break her.

A great read! Full of action, suspense, a little romance, and there is always something around the corner you didn't expect. I loved April's kick butt, ask questions later survival attitude. The end was satisfying, but also seemed to be left where the author could pick up and start writing again. I am in high hopes that it means there will be a sequel. A must read! The author has caught my attention and she will be one that I will continue to follow.
