Letters to Elise is a novella in the My Blood Approves series that spans the life of Peter Townsend from the very first moment he became a vampire. It is a beautifully told narrative in the form of letters written by Peter to the love of his life Elise, both before and after her death. This story can be read whether or not you’ve read the other books in the series.

In this story, author Amanda Hocking has really elevated the level of her writing. It is written with such eloquence and beauty and it truly captures and expresses the love Peter had for Elise. For those who have already read the other books in this series, this novella gives readers a better understanding of Peter’s reaction to and interaction with Alice. And for those who have yet to read the other books, it will put all his responses into perspective as they happen.

While it’s not yet clear if there is to be another book in the series, the ending to the story definitely leaves the door open.
