Review – Teeth by Chele Cooke

Teeth Tour Banner2

The 8th January 2015 marked the release day of the first book in a self published new vampire serial by Chele Cooke called Teeth!  I am very excited to have been sent a copy of Teeth!  I love anything to do with vampires and I couldn’t wait to sink my “Teeth” into this book! 🙂

I am over the moon to be part of the wonderful review only blog tour for this book!  I also had the privilege of hosting a guest post from the lovely Chele Cooke as part of an earlier blog tour which you can find here.

Details of all the tour stops will be at the bottom of this post.

Thank you to Faye Rogers and Chele Cooke for having me on this wonderful tour.

Medical intern Thomas awakes in a blood-drenched basement and the realisation that his life must change forever. After all, how can he practise medicine when the smell of blood turns him into a vicious killer? 

Spencer thinks being a vampire is better than any teen movie made it out to be. Now he must train Thomas and make his mentor proud. 

One mistake risks more than either are willing to lose, and a single broken law could turn them from predators to prey.

Wow! I love a good vampire book but Chele Cooke took the whole idea of vampires and their world to another level!  I really enjoyed Teeth so much!

Teeth begins with intern Thomas, a medical intern, waking up in a mysterious room in rather horrific circumstances which includes a lot of blood!  This opening really sets the pace and tone of what is to come for the rest of the book.  Why is he there?  What has happened to him?  What follows is we get a look into the lives of Spencer and August who have been vampires for many years living in a community that have too obide by the rules or pay the pay the ultimate price!

What I loved about this read was the fresh, modern setting of the world that Chele creates and also the detail which really gets you into the mind set, senses and feelings of a vampire.

One scene I particularly liked was vampires August and William who amongst all the rules and grief they were going through over something that happens in the book and pure hate for each other grief brings them to work together and be civil.  The relationships in the book were really interesting and I loved the whole idea of Sire bonds where you have a bind to your creator but you are not meant to know or acknowledge this bond.

The characters in the book came across exactly how the needed to and that is down to Chele Cookes writing style….I am actually wondering if she is an actual vampire herself as she knew SO much in so much detail *runs away scared* 🙂

This read is a short but gritty, dark, gruesome and very different from your usual vampire story but that’s what made it so refreshing to read.

I’m looking forward to the second book and where Chele will take us next!

I award this book 4 out of 5 Tales Of Yesterday Books!

Before long playing in other people’s worlds wasn’t enough and she started creating her own. Living in San Francisco at the time, she found a lot of inspiration in her favourite city, some of which can be found in her books.
