Nonostante sia improntato su note tristi e malinconiche l'ho trovato molto bello. E' la lotta di Zoe per ritovare equilibrio in una vita che stà andando a catafascio. E che infine trova in chi mai si sarebbe aspettata. E' la lotta di Simon che cerca di non perdere se stesso. E si ritrova in Zoe. ( )

When she meets Simon, a vampire, teenager Zoë finally meets someone who understands facing a mother’s death, and Simon finally finds someone who can give him the strength to face up to his evil brother. ( )

As much as I don't want to describe it as such, I can only really think of this book in terms of its similarity to Twilight. It's not nearly as corny - not by a long shot - but it's kind of the same idea. Zoe's going through big family changes, she doesn't feel like she belongs, and then a pale boy she's instinctively drawn to shows up and they connect on some weird, inexplicable level - despite his protests that he's not good for her. Poor Bella. I mean Zoe.

The fact that this isn't as superficially cheesy as Twilight is the only thing that saved this for me. The ending was a little weird, too. I'm not sure I really understood it, but I won't consider that so harshly. It was still an okay book. ( )

This book was on a regular reading schedule in high school, I have to remember to buy a copy so I can dip back into it from time to time. Not quite as beloved as COMPANIONS OF THE NIGHT, this was a great YA vampire book. ( )

I remember reading this book in Library School in a YA class and really liking it, so I came back again and reread it. With the vampire craze on this is good choice for those looking for a read-alike of the Twilight series. Romantic, mysterious, many of the same plot lines of the books by Meyer, but safe for teens to read. Instead of a absent mother (in Twilight series) Zoe has a dead Mother, and a mysterious boyfriend who has a secret (guess what it is?) Wonder if Stephenie Meyer read this book back in 1992 when it first came out? ( )
