This book was bad! It had the possibility to be pretty good but the execution wasn't there.
First of all it seemed like the author just took a little bit of vampire lore from every vampire story there is. Which wouldn't be bad in itself, except that I felt like it was almost a parody at times. Kinda like that movie "Vampire's Suck" that makes fun of all the vampire movies.
I REALLY, really, really, did not like the "heroine" of this story. I don't even like calling her that. She had no depth, and was a spoiled, self-centered, vapid young girl. She had no brains, and might as well have walked around with a sign on her neck saying, "Here I am come kill me!" Her character is really what made this book awful.
Here's the story:
Brian is a vampire and lives across the street from "the girl of his dreams". (I think this exact phrase was used at least 10 times in the story, although I really think it must have been nightmares!) Besides the usual vampire powers (strength, speed, agility, and mind control) he can dream walk and spirit walk. He's pretty obsessed with Heather (the girl across the street). He basically stalks her dreams and follows her around in a spirit walk. The book starts off where he is spirit walking and follows her to an abandoned home where she and her friends like to party. Heather leaves the party just as men in suits come to haul all of her friends off. (We don't know where.) Brian "suggests" that Heather come to his house so that he can keep her safe. Their journey begins as they try to escape the mysterious agents who have been tracking them down.Read more ›
Finding say, ten small mistakes or typos in a whole stry is fine. It doesnt really distract you from the point, but when you go noticeably over that it is somewhat annoying.
Therefore my oppinion is simple, beautiful cover-art, good story and characters but writting could be checked further.
Starting Fallen Blood, I was a little confused, but also still curious. Brian is a vampire, but not not in the sense as we've come to know vampires. He's in love with Heather, but she doesn't even really know he exists. Even though she lives across the street from him, and he visits her in her dreams. Well, Brian ends up inadvertently saving Heather when her friends and parents are taken by these men in suits and dark glasses. Think Mr. Smith in The Matrix.
I found the writing style ok, the story wasn't too bad. I actually want to read the next, Tainted Blood, to find out where this whole thing goes. I found Heather a little too unbelievable of a character. She was just such an idiot, constantly changing her mind about stuff, she reminded me of one of the bimbo's in a slasher flick. The only reason Heather didn't end up getting axed is because Brian's weird obsession with her. I was actually hoping someone would knife her. Aside from that, Brian was a little arrogant when he shouldn't have been, but then again, he's a 17yr old vampire. People that like the Vampire Kisses series will definitely like Fallen Blood.
