I'm writing this in the corner of the room with trembling hands. The candle long since burned out, and I sit in darkness, yet I can see perfectly. I wanted to believe this was some parlor trick, that the man who found me was merely a magician or a doctor, but I'm unable to refute it any longer.
My name is Peter James Monroe, and I am a vampyre.
In My Blood Approves, Peter Townsend fell in love with Alice Bonham, but she wasn't his first love. In a new novella told through his letters, his history is revealed.

"A Stunning Prologue To The Series (Spoilers)"
I finally feel like I know this character, Peter. In the books that chronologically follow - the story of Alice and his brother (who he made), Jack. he comes across and angry, mean and agonized. In this book his humanity finally breathes.
Peter is the protagonist and I like him because he always acted with the best intention, but I'd favourite Elise. She is his first love, his friend and confidante beyond the grave, in many ways his moral compass.
I only gave 4 stars because I was hoping for a male narration. She did an excellent job.
I think my eyes got wet once or twice, when he went home to a dead Elise and when he spoke of Alice. If you're a hopeless romantic, you'll love this book.
I would like to read the entire Blood Approves story in Peter's words. As a more 'mature' reader his perspective is mature and refreshing. Hocking's prose finally flows fluidly when she writes in his character's words. He is her muse.
"Really explains alot about Peter."
It puts Peter in a much different light. Explains a lot. It kind of makes you understand why he did the things he did. Helps you understand Peter and softens the way you see him.
When Peter meet Elise & how different he was then.
She brings the book to life!
I can't pick one, there were so many.
GET THIS BOOK! You won't be sorry!
"Always my favorite"
Peter was always one of my favorite characters, even before I had a deeper look into his past. Now I really love and feel for him. I wish there could be a new series with a true love and some happiness for him.
"Poor, Poor Peter"
I Loved the honesty that flowed thru, yet I cried praying for it to end differently.
Hannah Friedman is 100% superb in bringing all the characters to life and I am unable to choose only 1.
It would be a GREAT loss to pass up the "My Blood Approves" series. I have personally listened to the series several times.
"Great background knowledge about Peter (and Ezra)!"
It was helpful to find out more information about Peter. This will help readers better understand his behavior in the My Blood Approves series.
yes, I would. It's short, easy to listen to and a great love story. I enjoyed it.
The love story was told very well. A pure romance.
She did a good job with the narration.
No....but it did make me happy and brought up memories.
I'm going to definitely going to check out other writing of this author!
