Annalice is a very strong woman. I really liked her character and all she is willing to give up to make sure her daughter is safe. I kept hoping that Asa would do a turnaround from evil to good and that Annalice dreams for her future would come true. It is a story on survival, being strong and doing the best you can with what is given you. I really enjoyed it and thought it was well written. I am very much looking forward to reading the next book.
This is a Stockholm Syndrome with a twist. It's a cat-and-mouse game with a human and a vampire, a woman and a man. Will she be able to use her knowledge (his is a bit outdated after being alive so long and isolated from the rest of the world) to outwit him? Is there a way that she can win?
I found myself rooting for her against the odds. He is stronger, faster, and can read her thoughts. She is isolated as he has killed her dog and her only neighbor. The events unfold, and I found myself getting a bit fond of him, briefly forgetting that he's a monster. Mainly I wanted her to somehow find her way out of this impossible and dire situation. She was undergoing some changes during the process that I thought increased the element of suspense to the story. Then there is the climactic scene... Different from what I expected, yet satisfying.
I bought this as part of a 2-for-1 deal advertised on Fabulosity Reads blog. I'm glad I did. I noticed that on the author's Amazon page, she wrote that she's working on a sequel to this. I'd be interested in finding out about that.
While there are some lulls in the action during the days when the vampire sleeps, I didn't find these as problematic as other reviews have. I liked the attention to some of the everyday details and concerns and, often, these lulls only served to heighten the tension of waiting for the vampire to appear that night. Especially as the woman began plotting a way to turn the tables, the story took on a kind of Hitchcock style of suspense. This isn't a action-packed paranormal romance, it's a psychological thriller with a definite cat-and-mouse feel. What I respected the most was the author's use of her medical knowledge to bring a measure of realism to the vampire and her willingness to play the vampire for what he was: a predator. There's no angsty soul-searching creature of the night here, Asa is a unrepentant murderer, rapist, and savage, but still he is presented as a full character and not a stereotype.
All in all, while not a perfect novel, this is certainly a worthy entry in the genre by a new talent.
The reason for the three stars, is not so much for the book as a whole, but for certain scenes where I felt the author got carried away with a bit too much description for my personal tastes. Although well written and at times compelling, there were also places where I felt the novel hit a speed bump due to the exaggerated amount of descriptiveness used.
Overall, you could do much worse than this book. I enjoyed it for the most part and look forward to seeing what else this author has in store.
