He is a vampire. Alexis is forced to make a decision from which there is no turning back. – Will she deny this newly discovered heritage, or embrace it.
Review: Well…I got through it and that feels like an accomplishment. It just wasn’t my cup of tea. I don’t know what it is about this book but, I just was not all that interested, even though there were some things that haven’t been in any of the other young adult vampire books I’ve read.
What’s strange for me is, I don’t even have any questions. I usually have questions that, when I write about the story in my book journal, I put in the little ‘notes’ section at the side. I didn’t have any of those, all of my questions that I would have had were answered and I think that’s one of the reasons that I’m not all that crazy about this book.
There’s no cliffhanger, no suspense, no wondering who this person is and what’s going to happen next. It feels like everything has been resolved.
The writing didn’t really impress me either, it was just…it didn’t capture me and I didn’t feel like I was watching a movie in my head. That’s one of the things I love about books, especially well-written ones. Describing something in such great detail that you can picture it and it makes the story come alive is one of the best things.
This book did not do that for me. It was an alright story but, it just didn’t do anything for me and while it was okay, I don’t think that I’ll be going back and re-reading this book or getting into the series.
Thank you for reading my review.
