Descendant: Chronicles of the Ipswich Witch Paperback – June 22, 2011
|New from||Used from|
Miranda Bachman has taken a different spin on a vampire story. It is not boy meets girl or vamp meets mortal kind of story, with a light hearted romp through life. Here we learn that vampires were created as a necessity by God to do what God cannot do.

By 8%, I had to stop. Was this book even edited at ALL? By 8%, the crazy use of punctuation, misspellings and just downright BAD writing got to me. The final straw was a sentence that said, "You'll also find it bazaar" (instead of "bizarre") ... things like this are just ridiculous. If the author didn't care enough about the story to at least have people read it for simple mistakes, why should I care enough to read it?
This is the first book in a series, and involves a good deal of scene setting to establish the primary characters of Raven and Alasdair. Alasdair has been watching over Raven since she was a child, but waits until she is nearly 80 before making her his companion. This action, of course, has unforeseen consequences and a significant part of the novel involves establishing the worlds in which Raven and Arcos live and some of the various rules involved.
While I mostly enjoyed the story being recounted in the novel, I have some concerns. The text needs to be edited. I kept finding errors. While most were relatively minor, they interrupted my reading flow and jerked me out of the story. Is this important? Well, to me it is. Any story is a combination of content and presentation. The presentation should enhance the content, and it's hard to do that without some judicious proof-reading and editing.
