College freshman Leesa Nyland has been fascinated by vampires since she was three years old. That’s when her mom started acting weird, refusing to go outside during the day and insisting the sunlight hurt her skin because she had been bitten by a one-fanged vampire…
But fascinated doesn’t mean Leesa believes—any more than she believes in blue fire, people who live for centuries, and kisses that can kill. When her beloved older brother suddenly disappears, she is forced to confront all these and more
On the coat tails of my previous post I decided to put my first semi-critical review on here:
This book was a little difficult for me. I had a hard time getting through it and the things that bothered me may not bother you. With that being said here’s what I have to say about this book.
I liked the idea behind it and the writing wasn’t bad, just a little too descriptive for me from time to time.
I have no problem with flawed Hero’s and Heroine’s; hell Zadist was may fav from BDB, but the constant description of Leesa limping was a little over kill for me, I get that she has a bum leg and all but it doesn’t need to be described nearly every time were told she’s walking somewhere.
I’m also not sure how accurate the conversations Lessa had with her friends were, I don’t remember talking like that, then again I am 29 now so maybe I’ve lost touch? :)
Leesa seemed a little unbelievable , I kept waiting for her to have an emotional response to something . . . anything.
Why didn’t Leesa focus more on her brother? I was to the impression that was why she was there in the first place. Why was she so comfortable with Stefan? She fell in love so fast with Rave and yet she wasn’t sure she believed in what he told her? It seemed a little confused and uneven at times.
I will say this . . . I DID NOT MAKE A TWILIGHT CONNECTION at all. I actually loved the twilight books . . . not sure about the movies, but the books were pretty good. I would say this book is nothing like them.
