This isn't your typical Teenage Vampire series. It's just not. The cover of my copy of the book says that fans of Twilight should pick this up...I am a fan of Twilight, but this is NOTHING like Twilight. First of all, vampires are definitely not romanticized in this series. They are the bad guy, no question about it. That's not where the differences end though...this book was intriguing and had some violence and mystery to it, much more than Twilight. Don't get me wrong, I'm not dissing on Twilight, but I find it refreshing to read a series that is so vastly different than others in the genre that I've read before. The whole idea surrounding this story (being vague on purpose to avoid spoilers) is something that just instantly drew me in and I wanted to know more. Be warned there is a HUGE cliffhanger, so be sure to have book 2 handy to start right away! ( )

15-Dec: I started reading the series late last night, and it is really good, I was surprised, and very compassionate with Claire. But there is one questions what is it with ALL the writers and the name "Claire" written in different ways but the same nevertheless! For God sake pick different names! Morganville seems like hell on earth!! If I was born there I would with no doubt flee!! and start all over again! Monica and the Monickettes seem like devils!!

20-Jan: I just finished the book and I am not sure I liked the ending. I don't get why Claire even stayed in that damned town in the first place. And please don't tell me because of love and friendship. No one is worth all that trouble. ( )

wasn't sure of the plot, or why things were happening. ( )

This book was super addicting! I discovered the books while watching the Geek and Sundry web series last October and I've had them on my mind for a while now. I loved the show and I wanted to read the book it was based on.

I really liked Claire as the main character. She was so rational and disbelieving of vampires, it was refreshing that she didn't immediately buy into their existence or fall in love with one immediately. She was as rational and level headed which was refreshing.

I loved Claire and Shane's relationship. There was no insta-love which was a nice change in young adult fiction. They sounded like teenagers when they talked, not adults trying to be "hip" or cool.

The cliff hanger ending was unexpected, but not unwelcome. I can't wait to see what will happen in the next book! Happy reading! ( )
