This is not a romance in the sense of the other vampire stories. It is more of a drama, the telling of an interesting life from the viewpoint of someone who has seen it all happen throughout the eons of time. As interesting as it was, I did find myself checking my kindle often to see how far I am in the book. It is fairly lengthy and the pacing is smooth and steady throughout the entire story. It did not pick up and so some sections felt as if they dragged while others felt as if they were rushed. That is the reason I give it only 3 stars, interesting, but not spellbinding.
The book is technically well-written and edited, nary a comma is out of place, and there is a story here, it’s just that there is not a lot of new under the hood and I’m not a huge fan of the whole somewhat dated twilight phenomenon—you know, conflicted, yet beautiful and hip tween vampires, but if you’re into that thing...,I agree with the other reviewers in that the pacing is slow and it took a dedicated effort to get through it, which is not something that is a strong selling point. It would have been better had the author edited the narrative to increase the pace and therein heighten the reader's sense of excitement. Still, it’s as good or better than the rest of the stuff out there, so give it a read.
In Forever, Natalie J Case gives us just that. Amara is half-human half-vampire. Her mother was Changed whilst Amara was still in the womb. Amara’s story is told in the first-person. We move chronologically through Amara’s life, from early childhood somewhere in the mountains of eastern-Europe across the continents of the world. Amara feeds, loves and fights for her life and her future.
Case writes a captivating story that drew me in. Her prose is excellent, revealing the forces that drive Amara. Her struggle to contain the vampire half of her being as she tries to live in a human world and the human half as she lives as a vampire.
