No current Talk conversations about this book.
Mixed emotions about this book. While I enjoyed the storyline and addition of characters and appreciate series books, I felt the book length and some of the storyline dragged on. I know their is an index of the type of characters involved in the story and they were mentioned multiple times throughout the book, but I kept getting confused. It took me nearly to the end of the book before I finally had a handle on things. This is not to say it’s a bad book or I wouldn’t read the sequels because I did enjoy it. In fact I can’t wait to read another one to see what happens. I do feel however that maybe in your next book you should get to the point and not sting it along so much. I do commend you for the time you put into it. You have obviously done through planning and research.
There are a lot of people in this book but the way it was written it doesn't get confusing. There are times where I wanted to strangle Nicoleta for not listening (typical teenager) and I got frustrated that everyone forgave her right away for her mistakes. I also loved that not everyone who was bitten turned into a vampire.
That being said I enjoyed a satisfying ending and the promise of a book 2 which I look forward to.

I really wanted to like this book but I found myself unable to read the whole thing. I barely got halfway through. The story dragged to me and I kept getting confused by the terms used in the book despite the glossary because they were all so similar. I also found the way the characters talk to be flat and awkward. It did not feel like real conversations to me.
