Agree with another reviewer that the book cover isn't great. There are so many vampire books out there now that it's very hard to find one that's original. This book is highly original, and perfectly paced. The characters are unique (a heroin addicted prostitute that's not a cliche? Great job!), the author makes you care about them, and they're intriguing enough to hope there's a sequel. I want to find out more about the history of this line of vampires. Hope the author keeps up the good work.

I guess I'm a more discerning critic as compared to other reviewers. I thought this was a decent story, but not 5 star worthy! The plot was interesting and the characters well developed. What irritated me was that clearly no one proofread this before going to print. Typos and blatent inconsistencies. Enough to make you stumble as you read. Examples: Theroen (male character) references Samantha (another character) by name, but on the next page says he doesn't know her name. No, not part of the plot, simply poor attention to detail. Another example would be confused pronouns: Two's (female character) mind is referenced as "his mind." And I can only presume from the plot line when I read "I do now know [xyz], I do not know [abc], I do not know [lmn]" that "now" should've been "not"... It made more sense, at least. All in all, this is a light read for those looking for entertainment, just know that this is now...er, I mean, not worthy of 5 stars (IMHO).

Plain and simple, I picked this up as a freebie because it was a vampire book. All I can say is it is unassuming AND not the same predictible story! I love reading the tried and true series, but it is so nice to find a new author (well, new to me) with 'out of the norm' characters and a fresh storyline. I'm not going into the storyline because you can read it on the cover, but when you find yourself thinking about the characters three days after you finish the book - you know it made an impression on you. This was a really good book! Sure, there were a few narratives I hurried through, but overall the author did a great job of sucking me in (no pun intended) and wondering what would come next. I finished in one day and ran straight to the computer to search the author for more. I don't see one, but I hope there's a sequel coming soon!!

You will not be disappointed with this tale. The cover leaves much to be desired, but the story is well written. It is raw, captivating yet heart wrenching.

Sequel? Yes, please and thank you.

The beginning of this book reminded me of the movie Kiss of the Dragon (with Jet Li and Bridget Fonda). Though it started out as a familiar story, I have to say that it drew me in. I liked Two right off the bat and hated Darren immediately. This is big for me. I have to have a develop "relationship" with the characters right away and Buecheler did that well in this book.

After the first two chapters or so, I was just waiting for something to happen. There was a lot of character and relationship development in the first half of the book (which is great) but not much else going on. Once Theroen entered the picture the action seemed to stop. Sure, there was Two's transition into a vampire and the feeding that comes along with it, but I feel like there could have been more action to draw the reader further into the story. With character and relationship development and nothing else, it was hard to see what the whole plot of the story was aside from "handsome vampire rescues girl".

The second half (well, really about 2/3 into it) finally got into the "guts" of the story, the plot development, the action and (let's face it) the whole point of the book. With so much leading up to it, I was ready for some serious conflict, a really great fight scene or something along those lines. I feel like that never happened. Don't get me wrong, there were some great parts and some good ideas but I feel like the story fell flat. There was so much potential for it to be really great but it never quite made it. The best part was when Two returned to seek revenge (I'm not going to call that a spoiler because as soon as you start the book you know that's coming at some point in the book), but even that could have been better. I just feel like it left something to be desired.

i saw this book listed for free on kindle, so i figured what the heck? if i dont like it no big deal. but once again im glad my frugalness paid off. i couldnt put it down. i was sucked in from the very begining. starting with Two's sad lifestyle, then through the heart breaking and soul shattering events with Thereon. i admit that i might have had a few tears that were able to escape run down my cheeks. its a very good read, especially if you get it while its free. but even if you dont its worth the few bucks to pick it up. also according to the thank you at the end from the author there will be a sequel! cant wait

I like to make sure a book has over 100 reviews and at least 4 stars and up. I figure it's gotta be worth a shot.... oh i was wrong with this book.
Just like many of the reviewer said, this book was different and inventive.
It had the potential to be so much more, and I was utterly let down.
The book "peaked" too soon and then tried to build back up. EPIC FAIL.
I really like the opening of the story, I was hooked and thought.. "Wow this is gonna be a 'meaty' vampire book". I was wrong.
The only character with any amount of depth was "two"
I thought "Theroen" was shallow, as in fact were the rest of the characters.
I felt no emotional attachment to anyone else, so the the story just left me "empty"
I really really wanted to like this book... but just ended up really annoyed, and disappointed. I gave it two stars because started off with creative potential.
Save yourself and skip this book.
