Book Tour Review: Fallen Tears

Fallen Tears by Christina Channelle

First Published: January 25th 2013
Publisher: Christina Channelle
Series: Blood Crave #1.5

Synopsis: We left off from Dahlia with only a name–a name that is the next piece to the puzzle. A name that will eventually, “lead us to him.” But before we delve into the continuation of the Blood Crave Series, let’s answer the question that’s been on all our minds.
Who is Rowan?
This 21,000 word novella answers that question, and of how Rowan has come to know the vampire with pitch-black eyes..
Before the world, as she knows it, ceases to exist.
Review:
4 / 5 stars
Oh welp. So I reviewed Dahlia a few days ago, which is the first in this series, and Fallen Tears in the following novella which is kind of a teaser for the sequel and oh my god. I kind of just wished that this is the book that introduced us to the world, rather than Dahlia’s story. I felt Rowan’s story had so much more life too it! I mean yes I enjoyed the previous book but I just felt this was a lot better.
Fallen Tears is aptly named, its a novella that starts off by introducing us to 12 year old Rowan, homeless, alone, cold and hungry under a bridge until she realises she isn’t as alone as she thought, there’s someone else there with her, or should I say something. That something is Kaji, a vampire, or as you later find out the first vampire, and there’s almost an instant connection between himself and Rowan, they find themselves agreeing to be a part of each others lives, Rowan will teac Kaji how to be more human, to welcome his emotions and he in return will look after her and protect her. I think what I liked most about this is that we got more of insight to the vampires of this world, seeing as Dahlia was only half-vampire and that wasn’t even touched upon too much, here we get to meet at least two (hehe, does that count as a spoiler?) and you really get to emphasize with many of the characters introduced in this novella, its actually gotten me a lot more excited for the second book of the series and I’d really love to read it right now! We also get a closer look at some other fallen angels, ones that aren’t vampire hating murders and I’d love to see more of that family – again lack of names because I could touch upon a spoiler if I do! Anyway, I loved this so much more, it was a great read!
