-Austin, Mary-Kate, and Gabe. I liked the secondary characters more than the main one and that’s never a good sign. I feel like this series should have been told from Austin or even Gabe’s point of view, and I can’t help but notice that Mary-Kate would have made a much more interesting heroine. Austin was more than just the stereotypical jock type, and I liked his relationship with Lexi. He was witty and just plain nice. Mary-Kate got judged quite a bit but I saw through the label of “slut” that Lexi plastered her with. Mary-Kate became one of my favorite characters, which is saying something since she gets almost zero development unless it deals with her being a “slut”.
-The ending. The final chapter was by far the best part of the book. It was interesting and a huge surprise and part of me is tempted to read the fourth book just to find out what happens. This final chapter was pretty much the only part of the book that really held my attention, and seeing as it was only about two pages of the story, that’s probably not a good thing.
What I disliked:
-Plot. I felt like not a lot happened in this book. The story doesn’t really go anywhere; it stays in the same place and the characters don’t really fight towards any specific goal. They just sit around talking or making out or planning, but nothing actually happens. And anything that does happen usually happens off screen and Lexi finds out about it later. These books are very boring, and they try way too hard to be a teen drama.
-Lexi. I grew to really dislike Lexi in this book. In the first book, I thought she was an annoying, whiny hypocrite. Then in the second book she matured and she stopped slut-shaming other girls, and I started to like her.Read more ›
The original premise of these books was interesting and I looked forward to reading them. Unfortunately the writing just doesn't measure to the other books I've read of the same genre. (I read a few paranormal YA books each week). The main character is not believable in her actions and emotions. She just doesn't react to situations in a way that makes sense. She is also VERY slow to figure out things, putting 2 and 2 together many chapters after it is obvious to the reader. She wants to run away at one point, but does little about it after she tries once and fails. A believable main character would keep trying instead of sitting home whining about it.
The main romance doesn't make sense, in that they fall in love after such a short period of time, with no significant interactions. I felt no chemistry between them either. The author also makes many factual as well as editing mistakes (e.g. writing "her" instead of "him" many times, sayings sentences that don't make any sense and condraticting herself). At one point she referenced San Francisco and stated that it was sunny there all the time....even if she has never been there, please do some research before you write things.
Overall I was very disappointed in these books ( though once I buy a book I have to finish it ). But I found myself angry having to finish it because it was so bad. One more thing: the books always end with giant cliff hangers, giving no partial resolution to the story, like so many other books series do.
The is the first negative book review I have ever written on Amazon, but feel it is warranted.
Lexi’s questions get answered in the book only to leave her with many other questions! She needs to find a way to escape Briar Creek and you won’t believe who it is to help her. She is having a hard time dealing with finding out who she can really trust and there are some very unlikely people who she can trust.
Lexi finds out that Austin was turned right before his parents tried to kill him. Gabe has been having a lot of visions and in most of them, he sees Lexi’s death at the hands of the vampires in Briar Creek.
As an attempt for Briar Creek to get Lexi back, she becomes the lead murder suspect. Since they don’t want the authorities to find Lexi, Gabe and Austin enroll at Huntington High which is a Vampire Hunter school in a town just outside of Briar Creek. This is when Lexi finds out she is a part of the “Hunters” through her bloodline. One person at this school Lexi doesn’t want to see is the slutty vampire who created Gabe. When Lexi finds the two of them in an interesting position, her heart breaks and she runs to an old flame of hers, Craig.
In this book, we learn more about the history behind Briar Creek.
