Emma is freakin' awesome. She is a hunter, although since she is one of a kind I don't really know how everyone knows to call her the hunter, but the name isn't really too important. What is important is that she kicks butt! Although I would hate not sleeping or eating or drinking. I love food! (I would probably get way more done if I didn't have to sleep though) When Emma met Jake, I could feel the connection the two of them shared. It was so cool to watch them try and uncover the mystery surrounding them. Jake is pretty cool too. He really is a sweet heart. I knew right away that he was not like Emma, but I loved watching the story unfold the way it did. And their connection never wavered- that was what I liked the most about Violet Midnight.
Violet Midnight is an interesting take on vampires. I was riveted. The book is pretty brisk. The action just keeps moving alone. There are no dull moments or lags in the storyline. It took awhile before we got any sort of real answers but it was so worth it. The plot just kept building and building until there was an epic ending! I loved Violet Midnight and I can't wait to read the second book. I am a little curious as to the direction that it is going to take. I'm excited to find out!
*Disclaimer- I got a copy of this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. I did not receive any compensation for my review.
Emma and Jake are two similar characters who are attending the same college. When I say similar I mean eerily similar, but from the second they lay eyes on each other the attraction they share is impossible to resist. Ah but the kicker to the story you ask? They both are keeping secrets that hardly leave time for a relationship. Technically this story would classify as "insta love" but I think it was done right and not over the top.
I really like the character of Emma, she is kind of a bad *ss chick. I mean she is kicking butt left and right and having her butt kicked left and right. Yet she keeps going back for more, Emma is no damsel in distress and for that Lynn Rush I thank you. I also really enjoyed Jake and his development in this story. You literally see Jake's character form right before your very eyes. The fact that Jake is hot only adds to how much I enjoyed his character.
Oh! What? How dare I talk about a YA character that way? No worries cougars the characters in this story have an age range in their twenties, mid twenties to be exact. Which brings me to another part of this story I liked; I am an older college student so I really loved the fact that the characters were older. Although maturity wise they still seemed like younger characters.Read more ›
Emma knows nobody else like her. She has learned not to get close to others, fearing that they will find out about her. But when a public vampire attack takes place, Emma learns that she isn't alone. Jake claims to be just like her. Having a mysterious glowing tattoo and all to prove it, they decide to work together, with a beautiful relationship that we get to see form between the two.
The story behind Jake's past is a bit different, and when people start to resurface claiming things he never thought true, he learns that he needs to reevaluate things. His life in particular and his relationship with Emma. When you are told that you have no choice in a matter, do you just go along with it, or fight for what you believe in? Jake has some hard decisions to make, and he must make them fast.
