Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up–Lenah Beaudonte is an extremely powerful and ruthless vampire queen who is more than five centuries old. Unhappy with her vampire existence, she implores her vampire maker and lover Rhode to uncover an ancient ritual that can give her back her humanity. After hibernating for 100 years, Lenah wakes up as a human teenager enrolled at the exclusive Wickham Boarding School. Rhode has done everything to give her a new chance at life and in doing so has made the ultimate sacrifice–his own life. Mourning for him, Lenah seizes the chance to walk in the sunlight, have fun with friends, experience real emotions, and fall in love with a great guy. But Lenah knows that it is only a matter of time before her vicious coven opens her crypt and discovers her missing. Linked to her by dark magic, they will not rest until they find her, destroying the world she has come to love. Lenah is a unique and complex character whose emotions ring true. Her horrifying life as a vampire is revealed through a series of detailed and riveting flashbacks that are extremely effective in driving the plot and the decisions she makes. A promising start to a series, the story is filled with action, romance, longing, deception, and sacrifice. It will leave vampire fans thirsting for more.–Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

From Booklist

A vampire longs for humanity in this uneven first novel. After a ritual in which her coven lover sacrifices himself, centuries-old European vamp Lenah wakes up as a wealthy, mortal student at a swank New England boarding school. She acclimates quickly to her new life and is even drawn into a love triangle with sensitive artist Tony and hot jock Justin. But the clock is ticking as the rest of Lenah’s coven hunts for her, intent on bringing her back into the undead fold, whether she wants it or not. Maizel’s earnest, detailed prose leans toward the self-conscious, and her contemporary teen dialogue is occasionally awkward: “I’ve loved you for, like, ever so there’s no use in, like, convincing me it’s not true.” More compelling are the flashbacks of Lenah’s violent, romantic history, rich in vampire lore, even though the transitions are not always smooth. Nevertheless, Twilight fans looking for more fodder to satisfy their insatiable hunger for paranormal romance will find some sustenance here. Grades 8-12. --Jennifer Hubert

Format: Paperback
In Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel, a new young adult novel, everything works for me but the young adult part.

This is a question that nags at me whenever I read the premise of most young adult novels featuring powerful, charismatic, often-times centuries-old supernatural beings...showing up in high school, doing all the high school activities like going to Bio class and prom, and falling in love with high schoolers. The last part has the air of pedophilia to me, even if the said centuries-old supernatural being looks like a teenager; however, what I really don't get is why any being with so much experience and an array of gifted powers would ever think high school necessary or desirable in the first place. Wouldn't choosing to submit yourself to the mundane, as well as the company of mean, insecure, and immature children seem illogical?

Which is why half of Infinite Days, with scenes from the past life of Lenah Beaudonte, an almost 600-year-old vampire newly human, was enthralling, and the other half, where the an almost 600-year-old new human, goes to high school and falls in love with a 16-year-old...not so much.

It seemed to me that Maizel had written two books, one about the decadent and ruthless queen of a vampire coven and another about the odd new girl fitting into an exclusive boarding school - then put them together.

I know this is about vampires, so automatically, I have to suspend my disbelief; however, paranormal genres still have to have logic. I can believe that an almost 600-year-old vampire, weary of her tortured existence, would have an overwhelming desire to be human again.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
After reading the The Twilight Saga Collection series a couple of years ago, I have not really read much YA vampire stories, except for the Morganville Vampire series, preferring to read more grown-up vampire stories such as the St. Germain series by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, and re-tellings of Dracula (Penguin Classics). But when I came across this title on Vine, I was drawn by the unique premise and decided to give it a try. For the most part, I felt the author did a credible job in telling the story of Lenah Beaudonte, an immortal vampire queen turned mortal.

Lenah was a young teenager in England back in the 15th century when she crossed paths with vampire Rhode Lewin who promptly turns her into a vampire. The pair's relationship has its ups and downs but they are sort of soul mates. Fast forward to the present day, i.e. 2010 - Lenah awakens to find herself a mortal once more, after having slumbered (hibernated is the term used in the book) for almost a hundred years. Through flashbacks, readers are informed that Lenah had tired of ruling as vampire queen of a strong and ruthless coven of vampires for several hundred years and yearned to experience mortal life again. Rhode in a self-sacrificing act in conflict with most vampires' dispositions makes Lenah's dreams a reality.

Lenah must now live as a mortal in a boarding school in New England, and be careful not to draw too much attention to herself lest her ex-coven hunt her down (having no clue as to the true purpose of her going into hibernation).

Quick & Dirty: A highly original and truly extraordinary read.

Opening Sentence: Those were the last words I could remember.

The Review:

Lenah Beaudonte, a 592 year old vampire queen, awakens disoriented and shocked to find that, after more than five centuries, she's human again. She has wanted to be human again for so long, desperate to escape her brutal vampire existence. Lenah needed this, not only to save herself, but all of the innocent people who could cross her path. With help from her vampire sire and former lover, Rhode, Lenah's dream has been realized. Rhode discovered an ancient ritual to assist him in their endeavor. Unfortunately, Lenah had no way of knowing how her transition would affect the one who performs it. Forced to cope with her new reality, Lenah struggles to fit in. Rhode has enrolled her at the very secluded and exclusive Wickham Boarding School. He wants Lenah to have the life and experiences that he robbed her of when he decided to take her for himself. Rhode also gives her a crash course on technology and societal evolution. The modern world is a marvel to Lenah because she's been hibernating for the past century. Once her crypt is opened and her vampire coven discovers her missing, the hunt begins. Lenah knows that she's living on borrowed time because her deadly vampire coven is compelled to search for her, linked to her by dark magic. They want their queen back and now that she's human things are about to get ugly.

It's so hard for me to convey how much I loved this book. Infinite Days is unlike any other book that I've read in the vampire genre. I am pleased to say that Infinite Days more than exceeded my expectations. Ms. Maizel is a powerful and provocative new voice in the vampire genre.
