Book Blurb: 
Reality Bites 

Fortitude Scott’s life is a mess. A degree in film theory has left him with zero marketable skills, his job revolves around pouring coffee, his roommate hasn’t paid rent in four months, and he’s also a vampire. Well, sort of. He’s still mostly human.
But when a new vampire comes into his family’s territory and young girls start going missing, Fort can’t ignore his heritage anymore. His mother and his older, stronger siblings think he’s crazy for wanting to get involved. So it’s up to Fort to take action, with the assistance of Suzume Hollis, a dangerous and sexy shape-shifter. Fort is determined to find a way to outsmart the deadly vamp, even if he isn’t quite sure how.
But without having matured into full vampirehood and with Suzume ready to split if things get too risky, Fort’s rescue mission might just kill him.…
  My Review:

My oh my, what can I possibly say about Fortitude Scott? Fort’s life is a complete mess and the poor guy got a crappy deal in life but this kid has a freaking heart of gold. He’s the guy that never gives up even when he knows.. knows, that he is on the losing end. Fortitude is genuine and sincere and a complete push over in the beginning but watching him figure out who he wants to be and what he has to do to get there is worth the journey!

I truly enjoyed reading Generation V. It’s honestly a book that I probably never would have picked up had I seen it on a shelf and what a shame that would have been. Brennan has an entirely new take on Vampires and the super natural world as a whole that was really interesting and unique. The story is unlike anything I’ve come across and Suzume, well, she’s freaking amazing and I want her to be my friend. I highly recommend you give Generation V a shot. It will not disappoint and just wait till you get to the little fox and the bathroom. I’m not kidding when I say I read this part and laughed out loud suffering several, ‘that chick is crazy’ looks from the random strangers near by.

Generation V is a book I am extremely grateful I had the chance to read. The characters captivated my attention and the story kept me turning the page. I will admit to occasional lulls in the story but it was pretty awesome none the less! M.L. Brennan has generously provided me with a signed paperback copy for one of my lucky followers to win so I hope you all enter this amazing giveaway and I hope that the lucky winner loves meeting Fortitude Scott as much as I did.

   

 About the Author:

My first novel, Generation V, is coming out in May 2013 from ROC Books, and is a work of urban fantasy.
I cut my baby bibliophile teeth on my older brother’s collection of Isaac Asimov and Frank Herbert, but it was a chance encounter with Emma Bull’s War For The Oaks as a teenager that led to genre true love. Today, I’ll read everything from Mary Roach’s non-fiction to Brandon Sanderson’s epic fantasies, but I’ll still drop everything for vampires and werewolves in the big city.
I hold an advanced degree in the humanities, and I am work as an adjunct professor, teaching composition to first-year college students. I am currently hard at work on the second Fortitude Scott book, Iron Night, which will be published by Roc in January 2014.
