Vial Things
Vial Things is the first book in The Resurrectionist series. The book stars Allie, an eighteen-year-old with a unique trait. Allie has a genetic mutation that causes her blood to heal and bring back people to life. People have killed just to get a vial of the resurrectionist blood, and there is no doubt that this can happen again. To provide the blood needed, the Resurrectionists have been selling a portion of it, and this wholly turned Allie. Why profit from the blood if the aim is to help those in need?

Allie grew up under the care of her aunt since her parents were taken away. Throughout the years, she has been taught to be vigilant even though she doesn’t use her abilities. When she can no longer stand the blood trade, Allie chooses to live away from her family, but it soon becomes clear that danger will follow her wherever she goes. Fortunately, Allie has a sharp blade she can use against her attackers, and her fighting skills are way beyond average. To add to her security, Allie invites Ploy to work as a human shield between her and her attackers.

The Ploy is a gutter punk, but he has a heart of gold. He and Allie have a lot in common, and while they start out using each other to get what they want, a friendship develops over time. Ploy spends a few nights on Allie’s couch, and he alerts Allie in case there is an intruder. Their friendship continues to grow as the two get to know each other better, and you can only wish that they will make something out of their beautiful relationship. When resurrectionists start to be brutally killed for their blood, Allie and Ploy team up to find the killers before she becomes a statistic.
Allie is a lovable character. While she is a loner and doesn’t show much emotion, Allie is adorable and easy to relate to. Ploy is also easy to love, and it is admirable that he is willing to go to great lengths to protect Allie.

Vial Things is a thrilling, mysterious, and action-packed story. The story is about a teenage resurrectionist trying to escape only to find herself drawn back to the world she wants nothing to do with. This book is written in Allie and Ploy’s points of view, which helps the reader get to know the characters better. Both the main characters have secrets, but they come together to fight an enemy who threatens their existence, and their new-found friendship. The pacing here is just right, and the author will have you hooked from the first page. Definitely, a perfect read if you are into dark, scary, and morbid stories.
