More About the Author

I've been calling myself a writer since I was 8 yrs old. Born and raised in South Africa I've been living in New Zealand since 2008 with my husband and son, and in 2013 welcomed a baby daughter into my little world. I've had jobs in everything from banking to farming over the years, but in 2010 was finally able to fulfill my life-long ambition of being an almost full-time writer of Urban Fantasy (housewife, mother and cat slave are some of my other job titles). I'm an avid reader of epic fantasy, paranormal romance and urban fantasy as well as a passionate animal person. My life is always filled with animals of all shapes and sizes. I've owned cats, dogs, mice, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, horses, miniature horses, pigs, cows and sheep. I've worked on farms and petting zoos and have handled everything from porcupines and warthogs, to ferrets and hedgehogs. I've hand-raised kittens, lambs and an eagle owl. If I ever give up writing I think I'll study animal behaviour or start my own menagerie.

I find it HIGHLY suspect that such a terribly-written book has a 4.4 rating on Amazon.com.

One of the other reviewers mentioned this same suspicion, but I chose to ignore what appeared to be the one bad review and go with the majority. But I should have listened. What a God-awful book. I can't see any reason whatsoever to like this book, and this is strange coming from me, because I usually like pretty much anything readable and moderately entertaining. I have never, ever left a book review before, but I feel so cheated out of my $3.99 because of reviews that appear to be written by friends of the author that I want to give you my substantially more critical review. Then the choice is yours if you choose to waste your money...you can't say I didn't warn you.

First of all, the author appears to have the grammatical skill of a third-grader. Actually, that's probably insulting to third-graders. I'm not even kidding when I say that the spelling of the main character's name changed spelling for approximately ten pages, then changed back again for the remainder of the book. Ellipses have 3 periods, not eight, not nine, and not (in one exceptional case) sixteen. "Their" is not the same thing as "there" or "they're". No, you cannot use them interchangeably. Normally I can overlook things like this, because most e-books these days seem to have at least a few minor editing issues, but in this waste of my money and kindle space, the errors are literally on every single page. And often, there are more than one per page. This leads me to believe it's not simply an editing issue; the author just can't write in proper English.

Second, the frequent use of nicknames drove me insane. I don't speak Latin, but I assure you "Angeli Morte" is not Latin for anything.

I bought this book due to the reviews, the plot summary and the fact that I like to give writers a fair try. Also, sometimes I'm just in the mood for a vampy, campy, fun book - the writing may not be stellar but the book is fun, the characters engaging and some witty banter might be found.

Sadly, I did not get the vampy, campy fun book I was hoping for.

Mary-Sue:

Gabi is, without a doubt, a Mary-Sue. She is half-vampire. From birth. She has extra-special vampire speed and strength. She can sense all things supernat. She can talk to animals. She's the favorite almost-daughter of the head-honcho of the supernat super group she works with. She throws around tough language and has a couple tough-sounding nicknames. She's also a redhead - something that always makes me roll my eyes at (so many red-headed Mary-Sues out there). Honestly, I spent half my time going "of course" when I read about Gabi. She's so Mary-Sue that I deeply dislike her. She's not a strong female character - she's an author's personal fantasy about themselves. The fact that she gets beat-up occasionally doesn't make her less Mary-Sue. It just gives the author a plot device to allow the character to bemoan missing out on beating up bad vampires.

Which brings me to...The Vampire. I get it. Vamps can be sexy. They can be handsome. They can be charming. And I don't mind a little romance in a book. But there's no reason the book HAD to go that route. And the gratutious sex scene was...embarrassing. Not sexy. And as much as I hate the uber-master vampire "I will seduce you into being mine" routine, I found him LESS annoying than Gabi.

The plot - went on too long with too much backstory about the characters and not enough world building. Not Enough.

Bad writing - so very bad.

I was very disappointed with this book, I read a lot of Bit-lit and fantasy and this one was far below my usual standards.

The writing was really poor, too much of : "well let me explain this part of the story so you might understand the character better". So painful explanations tending to justifications in place of subtle clues letting the reader guess the heroes motivations and personnalities.
I'm still looking for the end of the story ? Never red before a book 1 of a serie ending so abruptly without warning... so bizarre.
The characters are so cliché that I just cannot stick with them : a sweet-marshmallow-hearted gentleman vampire Sire and a punky Lara Croft girl, an evil boss that dies in one paragraph...

I'm sorry to say I have the feeling I did waste my time on this book :(

Two chapters into the book and it was very clear how insubstantial this book is. I remind myself that I am trying to be fair.

Her main character is sassy like a 15 year old with a god complex (nobody likes that) and her leading man is as verbose and uncomplicated as that 15 year old's boyfriend. Their personalities are milky-thin and boring- no sort of character development. The author's descriptions are flaccid and brief.

I too am a fan of the early Anita Blake series and to compare this to it is like comparing a razor scooter to a Shelby Mustang. Nice try.

Wish I had tried to borrow from the library first. Please don't buy this book- you will never get those four dollars back.
