Anya Millar had no memory of her life or an instruction manual on how to navigate the insane world of humans, biting, and reality. Instead, Anya has had to learn to navigate the world of love, life, and sanity while avoiding those that would see her dead or enslaved.
This is the ongoing journey of Anya and Nicholas, human loving vampires and the human they love, Declán. What makes it all more complicated is that they are abominations in their own world and Declán is a natural born vampire hunter called a Guardian. 
Anya must come to terms with who she is and her missing past, Nicholas must win back the object of his eternal love while dealing with new cravings in his silent heart, and Declán must learn to destroy the very creatures that his heart has unequivocally given his heart and blood too.

I must admit that before I started reading this book I thought it was like any other book about vampires…. maybe similar to Twilight, but in this case, the girl was the vampire and the boy was the human. But how wrong I was! Don't judge a book by it's cover! Because after reading several pages, I noticed that the story is more complex than that,  and that the similarities with Twilight disappear after a few pages.

Blood's Voice tells us the story of Anya, a young vampire who suffers from amnesia, and who decides to start in high school. She wants to experiment a "normal" teen vision, and also in that way she will be able to learn how to control her cravings and learn how to cope better in the human world. That is when she meets a nice looking boy named Declán…. But her mayor surprise is when she feels an unknown attraction for him ... Also, we need to add to the plot a handsome vampire, who alleges that he met Anya more than thirty years before she disappeared...

This book was a big surprise that I wasn't expecting. Specially because of the story, which is quite peculiar.  I had never read about a vampire with amnesia before, so I was a little bit skeptical at the beginning, but the story is really good. I wasn't expecting a story so full of mystery and twists.  Also there were really nice characters. I really liked Anya and Star…. and I loved Nicholas and Declán ... It's too difficult for me to choose only one of them! : D

I don't want to spoil too much about the plot…so, what can I say? It's a really easy book to read, I literally swallowed it in two days, and I really liked it!  I recommend this book to all those who love vampire stories with romance, and those who like to learn new languages and cultures… Yes? Why? Well, because the author will delight us with a sweet romance full of phrases and words in Irish. : )

Happy Reading!

A big surprise!
