While the story starts out fairly simply, the details more than make up for it. Nina is a likable heroine--a normal teenager who doesn't shy from responsibilities and isn't afraid to jump into action when necessary. This is in stark contrast to the typical female often portrayed in the genre and allows for the story to pack quite a punch. The male lead, Gideon, is charming. While his character could still be better explored, his role in the novel is, again, a breath of fresh air within the genre.
I won't bore you with the details. This is a must-have within the genre and I'm excited to read any sequels that may come along.
One comment I have is that, maybe just in the copy of the book I got, but some of the words were blotched out from the printing. It didn't distract my reading, but it was quite noticeable.
I loved that this book had vampires that aren't what we are used to reading these days. They are more animalistic, primal, and true terrors of the night. Nina is a strong character with plenty of flaws. She must learn to compromise and allow others into her life to support her or she'll be as good as dead. My favorite character though was Gideon. I won't reveal what I liked about him as it would spoil the mystery but he is unlike any character I've read about thus far.
This book is definitely for mature readers, I'd suggest 18+. It contains lots of adult language, violence, and sexual scenes that younger readers may not be prepared for. The scenes that did contain graphic content were handled well and I'm sure many readers will appreciate it. Also, this was the only book listed on Goodreads and Amazon for this author so it may be a debut novel. If that is the case, kudos to the author for a job well done.
It is not m favorite of genres but I thought it would be an interesting read. I am old school and I have begun having issues with the way this genre has gone. I got a big surprise. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I am so glad I agreed to review it.
I try my best not to use a lot of spoilers in my reviews. I feel it defeats the purpose. If you give away too much information, it can make the possible reader feel they ahve alredy read the book so not buy it. With that in mind, if you love this genre , then this is a MUST READ.
You begin with a 17 year old girl, who is a student, one that is always on the outside. She is half witch and half werewolf. No one accepts her, she just does not belong in any group. She tries to make the best of life. She is a resiiant and responsible being. Upon her grandmother's deathbed she learns a secret. It is one that is both life changing and life threatening.
There is only one being that believes her and she does not know who to trust. Throughout the novel, the suspense and bone chilling story entwines itself into something you do not want to put down.
Although as I stated it is not written in my favorite genre, I will read anything this author writes. I enjoyed the noveel immensely.
I recommend this book to anyone that reads suspense, paranormal or fantasy fiction.
