Samantha Carter believes that a vampire is responsible for the brutal deaths of four women in Whitechapel, London, England. Each murder is identical to those committed a hundred years before by a very different serial killer.

Desperate to prove the killer’s identity, Samantha follows him onto a late night tube train. But Samantha doesn’t reach the next station and finds herself on a very different journey, where she discovers vampires are very real and far more dangerous than she had ever imagined. To stay alive, Samantha needs to figure out why things have gone so terribly wrong for her – and more importantly, why she is out of time?

My Review:


A couple of months ago I read ‘Vampire Watchmen’, the second book in the Samantha Carter series by Tim O’Rourke. I really enjoyed the book but I was obviously missing some info from the first book. So when I got the opportunity to read the first book, I immediately agreed.

In ‘Vampire Seeker’ we meet Samantha Carter, a twenty year old with an obsession to prove vampires really do exist. When four woman get brutally murdered in London, Samantha is convinced this must be the work of a real vampire. Trying to prove her point Samantha follows a guy who’s been seen at the crime scene. But when Samantha gets on the London tube, everything changes. Soon Samantha finds herself in the Wild West of 1888. And danger is very close.

What I missed in the second book I definitely found in the first book of this series. I really enjoyed everything about this book. The introduction about Samantha’s life and the way she ended up in another time, the characters from 1888, but above all I truly enjoyed the mystery of this book. Tim O’Rourke definitely wrote a grabbing story filled with enjoyable characters which will make you want to keep reading.

Samantha is an awesome main character. She is tough, down to earth and just a little crazy. I loved the way she handled ending up in 1888. She freaked a little but most of all she just figured it was all a dream. I loved that about her.  
I also really enjoyed the Preacher and Harry. Everything about the Preacher was mysterious and I really just kept wondering what was his deal. He was kind to Samantha but was always on his guard. Harry was just very arrogant and not really nice most times. But still I really kept thinking this was just all an act.

‘Vampire Seeker’ is definitely a very awesome read. It’s fun, mysterious and not too long. I really enjoyed this book and the paranormal part. It just felt like everything is this book fit and I can’t wait to read more books in this series. This one definitely gets my recommendation.
