Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Amy lives with her husband Mack in Citrus Heights, California with their three children Arthur, Gwenyfar, and Gawain. She teaches English Literature, and although she has yet to meet a vampire or member of the sidhe in the Sierra Foothills, she remains hopeful.

More About the Author

Amy Lane has four children, two cats, a love starved Chi-who-what, a crumbling mortgage and an indulgent spouse. She also has too damned much yarn, a penchant for action adventure movies, and a need to know that somewhere in all the pain is a story of Wuv, Twu Wuv, which she continues to believe in to this day! She writes fantasy, urban fantasy, and m/m romance--and if you give her enough diet coke and chocolate, she'll bore you to tears with why those three genres go together. She'll also tell you that sacrifices, large and small, are worth the urge to write.

I loved this book. It sucked me into the NorCal universe of Corinne Carol-Anne Kirkpatrick, Adrian, and Green immediately, and I simply could not put it down. I, too, look with anticipation for the next installment of this story. That said, I found the typographical errors and poor editing jarring, and it lessened the total impact of the book. I would purchase this book again IF I could get a copy that was more polished --- I had to stop several times and try to figure out just what word the author had intended to write, and I found myself wishing for a pen in order to correct the blatant errors of punctuation and spelling. This story is just too good to stand in this sloppy edition!

I don't usually leave feedback/reviews on Amazon.com. I figure everyone needs to make up their own mind when it comes to reading. Writing is an art form and is appreciated/interpreted many different ways by many different people. And who am I to say something is good or bad? However, I feel compelled to write a review for this book.

I purchased this book after seeing all the rave reviews and because I'm a PNR lover. I didn't mind the price because I figured it was going to be a great read. I've been looking for a new PNR series after reading several more "mainstream" series such as Twilight Saga, Sookie Stackhouse, Mercy Thompson, Weather Warden, etc.

I was so excited when I read the description and reviews for this book and starting reading it as soon as I opened the box from Amazon. However my excitement was dead about three chapters into the book and my disillusion began soon after. The only character I somewhat enjoyed was Green, and that's only because he reminded me another tall, long haired blond from a different series. The others seem a little weak and somewhat absurd. But even more bothersome was the writing style of this book.

The writing doesn't seem to flow smoothly and is somewhat choppy in parts. Almost like reading something that was written by a non-English speaking person. You get the jest of it, but your left wondering what the writer was really trying to convey. I find myself having to read entire sections of the book over again in an attempt to understand certain conversations between characters. I love to read and would like to think I know HOW to read as well, but this book made me feel like a 5th grader trying to read and understand a college textbook.

Format: Paperback
Cory lives in rural America in the middle of nowhere. She comes from a poor working class family and as a result, not only do other people consider her white trash, but her own parents also can't understand why she would want to get a good education instead of finding a cheap job and a husband asap. But since she doesn't want to be stuck in this life and place, she takes a job as a night-shift clerk at a local gas station to finance a good education. Once she has passed her finals, she will get the hell out of here! She has learned to deal with the way people treat and see her by taking on a "tough-chick" persona, including died hair, heavy make-up, lots of earrings and a tough, often unfriendly behaviour. But underneath that exterior she's actually shy and feels that she's not worth much. She's not beautiful or thin or from a good family. Because of that, she's almost painfully shy around some of the more good-looking men who come to the gas station regularly. But one night, Arturo, one of those customers, won't accept that anymore. When he touches her hand and makes her look at him and talk to him, her life changes forever. Because Arturo is not a normal man, he's one of a large group of preternatural beings living in the surrounding foothills, and his touch opens her eyes to this world. Soon she makes friends with some of the sidhe, were-creatures and vampires she now sees as what they are. And she falls in love with Adrian, a vampire who's also second in command at the fae's hill. Things get complicated and dangerous when attacks on Adrian and the were-people start. Someone from the vampire's past obviously wants to harm or even kill him.Read more ›

Book 1. Vulnerable
Obviously a first book. You can see that the ideas were there, like a weaver faced with a loom and a mental idea of the clothe they want to weave, but its their first piece, so you end up with tightly woven sections and areas with a few holes and snags.

You are sort of dropped into the story with little preamble, the characters haven't grown into their full depth and personalities and the dialogue is a little stilted/forced and choppy. The plot flows but you are left with a few "what the..." moments, trying to figure out how you got to that point.
Having said that, I could see what Amy was going to achieve, the potential that was there and that the story WOULD evolve.

This book was a great effort for this first-time published author. The book tells the story of Cory, a young woman trying to find her place in her world. In doing so, she meets various supernatural beings, and finds that her place is not necessarily where she thought it was, and home is where you make it.

I enjoyed this book greatly, and it is an extremely refreshing change of pace from the usual "vampire" book which tends to be extremely violent and dark, with some quite sadistic. This book takes a more positive approach, although there is certainly enough action to satisfy traditionalists. The characters are complex and we get a glimpse into a three-dimensional culture of the supernatural beings-not just a one-dimensional, stereotypical description. In addition to creating a complex, vital world of the supernatural, Amy Lane also vividly portrays our own human world and paints a complex picture of our human heroine, so Cory too breaks out of the stereotypical hero/heroine role.

This certainly is a book that will please fans and readers of traditional "vampire" books, and people simply looking for an enjoyable book as well. I hope we see additional books from this author.
