Book Description

Vampires and mortals, love and lust; these things usually don’t make good combinations. Though, in Luxuria, they all come together to make one enthralling and captivating story. Nicci Sefton creates a world between the living and the undead from which a love story unravels. Because Nicci was 17 when she wrote this literary work, she was better able to relate to her characters and draws from her own experiences to make the story more lifelike.

Review

"Outstanding Entertainment! From one book to the next is merely like waiting for the next chapter.  Nicci brings the characters to life, you can tell that she has put great thought into establishing each character."  --Kecia Hannah

Ms. Sefton's writing style gives the reader a good insight into this world and allows us truly feel as though we are part of the struggle that is taking place. --Leslie Dismukes

2.0 out of 5 stars Editing issue? January 30, 2013

Sometimes the story was hard to follow, but I believe the cause was poor editing. Overall it was a good book, but it doesn't compare to Twilight.

3.0 out of 5 stars Editing!! March 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This series was okay. Each of the three books had the same issues with just needing a good editor. With that being said, For a 17 year old writer it was a good use of imagination.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just good enough to keep me reading February 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was an okay quick read but if you are looking for something ground breaking there is nothing unexpected here. I haven't researched the author but this was on the cheap list for 1.99 or something like that. If this is a first attempt it was a good effort but not great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read, not only for YA. April 21, 2011
Format:Paperback
English is my second language so I can't really make statements about the editing, but the story is great and fun to read.
Reminds a bit of the Vampire Beach Series by Alex Duval, only better in my opinion.
I couldn't stop reading and I already ordered book 2.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great start for a high school sophomore February 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of the downsides to the online publishing options is that juvenile works make it to the public long before an author becomes famous. This work is probably going to embarrass Ms. Sefton if she becomes an adult writer. As other reviewers have noted, much of the book is derivative (unfortunately from other vampire romance works that, while popular, are not very good), the dialog is stilted, and the unedited version is apparently what made it to publication. It's an excellent book for Ms. Sefton's age and experience; I would give it an A for a high school creative writing class.

1.0 out of 5 stars Save your time and money February 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was appalling. It was as if you'd taken Twilight, swapped the genders, and stuck it in a blender with bad grammar, incorrect word usage, and poor sentence structure.

A great many plot points were directly stolen from Twilight. Seriously. The whole forest-tree-destruction to prove how "dangerous" you are was there. It followed the same format of a long "romance" and then a sudden "danger". Please note I am using both the words "romance" and "danger" /very/ loosely.

The actual writing was atrocious and has clearly never seen an editor. The author even used incorrect words! The grammar was awful and some of the sentences were so poorly written I couldn't even figure out what she meant to say.

Overall, save your time and money and read something else.

3.0 out of 5 stars Twilight it's night February 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The plot is ok, but I almost quit reading early on. The editor/proof reader allowed a "their" for a "they're", and allowed at least one word order reversal to be printed. Additionally, the author's fashionista bent when describing the Crystal's outfits seemed very amateurish. I did persevere, however, and the book did improve. This is no Twilight, but it Isn't a total waste of time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Written by a teenager February 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I first started reading this book, I didn't know that it was written by a teenager. It was very easy to read(almost too easy to read) and after a few chapters, I came back to Goodreads to find out more about the author. She wrote this while she was still in high school! I'm glad I found that out before I finished the book and dissed it in my review. This was a good story but it lacked depth. Some scenes made no sense but others really pulled me in. The dialogue was awkward at times, and the grammatical errors often made me have to read a sentence two or three times to understand what the author meant. Overall, I'd say this book was just ok...for a high school author.
