"A book to rival TWILIGHT and VAMPIRE DIARIES, and one that will have you wanting to keep reading until the very last page! If you are into adventure, love and vampires this book is the one for you!"
RESURRECTED is Book #9 in the #1 Bestselling series THE VAMPIRE JOURNALS, which begins with Book #1, TURNED!
In RESURRECTED (Book #9 of the Vampire Journals), 16 year old Scarlet Paine finds herself changing in mysterious ways. She is becoming sensitive to light, able to read peoples’ thoughts, and is faster and stronger than she’s ever been. She doesn’t understand what’s happening to her, and tries to ignore it. But she can only dismiss it for so long.
Caitlin Paine, her mom, knows too well what’s happening to her daughter. She underwent the same transformation to vampire once, centuries ago. But now, in the present day, as a mere human, she has no memory of it. All she has is the journal she found in the attic—her mysterious vampire journal—telling of her exploits in another time and place, and of the vampire race being eradicated. But was there one exception to the rule? Could it be that Scarlet, her daughter, is the last remaining vampire on earth?
As Scarlet tries to fight who she’s becoming, she also tries to fight her intense feelings for Blake, a boy in her grade who she has a crush on. She can’t tell, though, if he’s into her, and with the big Halloween dance just days away, the pressure is on. She would do anything for Blake to ask her. But Vivian, the meanest of the popular girls, is also on Blake’s radar, and she’ll do anything to make Blake hers—and to make Scarlet’s life a living hell.
Luckily Scarlet has her own clique of friends to back her up, including her best friends Maria and Jasmin. They, too, have guy troubles—but it isn’t until Sage appears, the mysterious new boy, that her friends become obsessed. Scarlet finds herself attracted to him, too—and is surprised when it is her, of all the girls in the school, that he pays attention to. But her mind is set on Blake, at least for now, and she continues to hope he’ll ask her to the dance.
Just when it seems that Scarlet has what she wants, her body changes. Soon it may be impossible for her to be near her fellow humans. Soon, she may have to choose between her desire to live and her desire for love.

I'm still here reading, and I wouldn't if I wasn't totally mesmerized by this series. It's wonderful reading, can't put it down. Great endings to all the books. Have been totally entertained.
Resurrected -- what would you do if your child was turning into a vampire?
First off let me say that if you haven't read the Vampire Journals series by Morgan Rice, you might want to before you start the Vampire Legacy series. Resurrected begins the spin-off series Vampire Legacy that came from Vampire Journals. However, Morgan Rice does a wonderful job at giving you the need-to-know information throughout Resurrected, if you choose not to read the Vampire Journals series first.
In Resurrected Morgan Rice starts out the book with it being Scarlet's 16th birthday. Her parents Caitlin and Caleb are thrilled to be hosting a surprise party for Scarlet, where Caitlin would hand down a necklace that had been in the family for generations. However, that was the last "normal" day any of them would have again. When Caitlin can't fall asleep she remembers the stack of old books her grandmother had given her years before. She heads up to the attic to find them, but Caitlin wishes she never would have. In that stack Caitlin finds her Vampire Journal. The problem is Caitlin cannot remember any of her time as a vampire. She is confused if it is real or not, why wouldn't she remember being a vampire, and are there really vampires? All of these questions and more start unraveling Caitlin, and when she seeks answers from a friend, Scarlet is struck ill. Caitlin arrives home to find Caleb sitting with Scarlet and then their world turns upside down. Between Scarlet throwing Caleb across the room hard enough to leave his imprint in the drywall and her just disappearing, Caitlin and Caleb aren't sure what to do. Caitlin realizes that Scarlet is becoming a vampire, but Caleb doesn't believe her. Poor Scarlet is still suffering through regular day to day teen drama, but on top of it is dealing with "the change" even though she has no idea what she is becoming.
I love the way Morgan Rice writes her books. Even though they are written in the third person, I still feel that I can create a great mental picture of the scenes. They are very fast paced and something is happening. This is the kind of book you think you will start at bedtime, only to find out that you didn't sleep and read the entire thing in one sitting!! Look for my book review on Craved, book #2 in the Vampire Legacy series, where we are introduced to Sage and poor Scarlet is being accused of having a drug problem. Poor confused parents :)
Love her storyline!!! Would love to be her proofreader! Little bit of everything...romance, suspension, and action! Couldn't put it down.
