Book Description

Imagine living a human charade for fifteen years and never knowing it. Imagine being provided less than a week to learn and accept your family’s true heritage before it overtook you. Alexa Jackson, Lexi, is abruptly thrown onto this roller coaster and quickly learns that she can’t change fate, regardless of how many lifetimes she is given. She will be transformed into a vampeen on her sixteenth birthday, she will be called upon to fulfill a greater destiny within the dangerous world of vampires, and she will have to risk heartbreak and rejection if she ever wants a chance at love with Kellan, whether she likes it or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars So bad it's good October 19, 2011
By Katrina
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this book on the basis of it's negative reviews, and got everything I was hoping for. By the end I was literally holding my sides and howling with laughter. This could be a new cult classic.

Take the typical teen angst/Twilight rip-off setting that has become so popular. Check. High School girl with best friend, new boy, and issues. Check. Werewolves? Not this time. Vampires? Check. Angsty brooding, family secrets, inner turmiol, big transformation, confrontation, resolution? Check. Hot vampy love? Not so much.

The thing that makes this particular teen angst/Twilight rip-off special is the absolute incredible awfulness of the writing. If one descriptor would do, why not use two? If you know a word, use it. If you know a bigger, more awkward word to use in it's place, go with that one! And hey kids, it's spin the thesaurus, dig the dictionary time! It is as though the author was trying to get points for using the most big words possible in each page.

The book is clogged with moment-by-moment descriptions of the protagonist's apparel, with brand name everything from clothes, of course, to stores and transportation and even food. It's wierd, given the love/happiness/sharing end of the book. But part of what makes it so funny. And we go from teeny-bob passsing notes in class, texting, talking IRL that sounds almost authentic to these characters, to gobs of stuff that they are supposed to say spontaneously that has clearly been labored over, again and again, the author sweating and digging deep to get it just so horribly wrong.

As I type the typing of this sentence, in a manner to describe the description found in this book, I wonder whether this will be the newest latest hottest funny rock star punk book, and god I hope so. I hope the writer had just as much fun with it as I did, and that this is one big ironic wink for those who get it to get it. But somehow, I doubt it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Materialistic wish fulfillment fluff September 23, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Vampires, in the post-"Twilight" world, have become a real mix-and-match type of character for authors. If you don't like certain characteristics associated with vampires, just make up new ones. Have your vampires drink from animals, go outside (and sparkle), do whatever you feel. What do you do, however, if even new style best-of-all-possible-characteristics vampires aren't special enough for you? Enter the "vampeen," a rather unfortunate name that sounds more like something that Edward might pull out of his pants during a moment of passion than the vampire-human hybrid this book introduces us to.

Lexi is a "regular" teenage girl ("regular" in that her socio-economic status is way beyond that of the average teenager) who, Twilight-style, notices a mysterious but cute classmate. He turns out to know her family and quickly lets her know that her life is about to change forever. She's a vampire-human hybrid and all the non-human parts of her genetic code will turn on exactly at midnight on her sixteenth birthday, which - conveniently - is just a week away. Apparently her parents thought the less time she had to deal with this the better (they also felt like it was better for a near-total stranger to help guide her through this transition). They're really the ciphers in the book - they don't much guide her or help her at all. Their function is to fund all her activities and discourage her from having sex. I would figure that any person who is literally hunting humans can make her own decision about sex, but this book has the same weird anti-sex vibe that permeates the "Twilight" series.

As a "vampeen," Lexi is immortal and will gain superhuman strength and speed.

2.0 out of 5 stars I had good expectations until.. October 12, 2011
By Oddgirl
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had downloaded this book a bit ago, and had honestly forgotten exactly what the storyline was when I started reading it. I rather enjoyed the first half of the book. The storyline, while very Twilight-esque, had some interesting plot lines that I was excited to see developed, notably the vampire killer and the war between the vampires and vampeens. I also thought the premise of someone changing from human to vampeen was going to be interesting. However, after the main character's transformation into a vampeen, the book took a drastic turn for the worst. It was rife with pages and pages of descriptions of the hot new clothes she was able to buy that matched the hot new body that she had which she was going to use to impress/seduce her hot new boyfriend. It was more fluff than I could stand, and trust me I have a fairly high tolerance for fluff.

The other peeve I had about this book was the rampant laughable misspellings. I seriously would have given this book another star if it weren't for them. Here are a few examples: "I lied down on my bed" where "lied" was misused in this fashion at least a half a dozen times, "tourane" was used to describe the TERRAIN on the golf course, and while shopping an "empire wasted shirt" was purchased instead of an empire waist shirt. Come on. Tourane isn't even a WORD! I think the book would have been greatly improved if only someone would have paid attention to their spell check. It was incredibly painful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too Many Problems August 28, 2011
By Sandra
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book falls short on so many levels. The dialogue is not organic and outdated/unrealistic. Paired with the dialogue, the characters come across as cartoony that have no meaningful substance. I didn't like any of them, especially the main character.

The main girl's actions and thoughts weren't justified to me. She's overweight but it's not explained why. Her parents are in shape, she seems to eat right, she has not problems at home that would suggest she was "eating her feelings". She's just heavy for the sake of being different it seems. But, then it goes away when she becomes a vampire and thus, "perfect". This transformation falls completely flat and her behavior after it makes me dislike her more. There's nothing wrong with an anti-hero but I found nothing to like about her.

The romance was just plain predictable and I cringed as it unfolded.

The story is extremely slow. The author takes way too long to start up events and mentions details about the characters too late in the story. Why did you mention she wears tennis shoes later on? You need to sprinkle details ahead of time or else the reader is going to assume whatever they want and then be surprised (and irritated) when you finally decide to mention them. Similarly, there is too much of nothing going on to begin with. It's mostly riddled with the MC's thoughts over the two guys she "fawns" over, mixed with so much information that has no point in moving the character/story forward.

The writing is not pleasing either. It's first POV so granted, I don't expect much from a teenager, like elegant prose, but it was almost all tell and no show. The author also uses too many dialogue tags, which is a big no-no in standard writing.
