4.0 out of 5 stars mixed feelings August 25, 2011
By rhonda
Format:Kindle Edition
Its hard to rate some books. This one starts talking about this guy Bob what he looks like and talking to his misstress and it would take him an hour to get home.
Then she describes how fast vampires can walk. Then follow into his garage and kills him and how and why. I really did not like much of the first part of story.
But then she talks more about her life and when she met her co-worker on a film and they fell for each other.The rest of story got me caring about Jane and Steven.
I ended up shedding tears I was into the story. I would read more about Jane and see how much I liked that book if their is a next one.
I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great idea, not great execution July 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I got this book free from [...] in exchange for a review.

This really turned me off for the first half of the book. The character is talking to you, the audience not thinking to herself. I do not like the character including me in the story so blatantly.

However, looking past that, the story started fairly interestingly, as a vampire assassin.

And then turns 360 and becomes a love story and how she turned into a vampire. Which is fine and all, but the title is "vampire assassin" and doesn't mention a reason why she became one. It just ends with the tragic love story. So while the love story was unbelievably sweet and much more realistic than the Twilight series, the story only gets three stars because of the point of view and the fact that the assassin part is never explained in this first part.

I'd probably recommend you read it if you can get past the odd point of view just for the sweet love story, but don't expect too much. The love story is very two dimensional, though sweet, because it's a memory and not happening play-by-play. I think that if it was more of a flashback, where the character was "living" in the moment it would have done a whole lot better.

2.0 out of 5 stars By the way, I really love.... and other tangents November 21, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well I wanted to leave a review for this book. I bought this book to read while on a long road trip. By the way, I love road trips. There are roads everywhere. Did I mention I like roads..why? Because they are black. My favorite color is black. Sometimes I like black with gold....and on and on and on and on!!!!!!

Hopefully you were able to get through my example of what this author constantly did throughout the first twenty pages or so. I wasn't able to get past it and finish the book. I really liked the opening; it was an interesting, novel concept, at least some of the vampire aspects. It all began to crash and burn when she tried to fill in character details by using hundreds of unnecessary details in the most annoying places. It got to a point that I couldn't read one paragraph without being bombarded with details about the characters favorite sun tan lotion or type of throw bag. I understand this is a common way of introducing details about the character, but give me a break. It became so intrusive I just gave up. It could have been a great book, once you got filled in on every single detail of her life, but I never got to it. I thought the goal was to show, not tell.

For example, she mentions her favorite bag that is her favorite bag because of its color and how large it is. She also mentions how long she's had the bag and all the places it's been with her. She does this in an entire paragraph, in a jumble of brain numbing information. Why not just have her carry around the stupid bag? "On all my jobs I carry my old, roomy tote bag; it is perfect for my laptop". Done.

I gave this book a 2/5 instead of 1/5 because if you can actually ignore the random tangents and the fact that the supposed vampire has a copy of twilight on his shelf, it may be a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to the next one now! May 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
First off this was a very quick and easy read! I found myself laughing at Jane as she was narrating herself through the first several chapters. Quick wit played a big part in the beginnings of this book.

The author did a good job with the technical writing of the book. The language was easy to understand and flowed very nicely. The information that she shared was mostly necessary to portray her story and get you involved.

There are two main characters in this book, Jane and Steven. Both characters were well thought out and the history of how they came to be made sense and worked nicely.

My one thought through the book was why is she an assassin? Book one did not answer that exactly, and I would have liked to know, but it is very obvious that the reason will be showing up soon in book two. I am hoping that this reason makes me feel happier, not because I didn't like the story, but because I wanted to cry at the end of the book.

Enjoyable quick read that will have your laughing, thinking and close to tears with emotion. I'm looking forward to reading book two!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read June 25, 2011
By Pamela
Format:Kindle Edition
Vampire Assassin is the first novella in a series about a young woman called Jane. Or should I say a young vampire named Jane.

Book 1 starts off with a bang, showing us Jane's current job using her vampire abilities as a paid assassin. But Book 1 isn't really about Jane's job as an assassin or even WHY she became an assassin (Though there is some inkling as to what my drive her.). It's about how Jane became a vampire in the first place. It's her back story.

I found it to be a fast, fun read, and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

I like the writing and were the character is going. I'm assuming more violence is on the way to the story.
