The characters are solid and believable. The main heroine, Amanda, is one of my top two favorite female protagonists this year. Their relationship (sort of) is tense and done very well. Marco is an unstoppable machine of testosterone and rage. I would have liked to have seen him lose get taken down a peg or two here and there, he’s just so smug, but the author brings out that believable personality in vivid ways. The humor sprinkled through the story is used well and had me really laughing. The pace is usually blistering, rushing through at high speed. Action is mostly non-stop.
I had only two issues with this book. One is a few spots that get really bogged down in characters just discussing info, sort of a half-disguised info dump. It happened a couple times and had me itching to get through. I’m happy to chalk that up to inexperience on the author’s part. Everyone has to start somewhere.
The second issue was a character who pops up maybe halfway or more into the story. He gets introduced really late in the game and then we spend a bunch of time with him, without any answers about who he is or why he’s there. He’s cool and mysterious and all, but I kept wanting to get back to focusing on just the two core characters and their frustratingly tense pseudo-romance.
Other than those two mild issues, this book was great. It’s the first of a series and the author has convinced me to come back. I especially want to know more about Amanda and learn about her past. I don’t think there’s a better compliment to a book than to say, “Give me that sequel!”
All the while the reader is taken though bits of the history, folklore, physical, and metaphysical traits of vampirism that really flesh out its role in this world. And in the process, the relationship between Amanda and Marco takes gradually revealing turns.
The fight scenes are nicely detailed and thought out, both in the one-on-one encounters and in the larger planning phases. There are more graphic elements in some of the encounters and criminal elements as one would expect.
The variety of characters is fascinating--government officials, Vatican ninjas, gangs, vampire club goers, magic users, and a few that can't be identified (yet)!
If fantasy, science fiction, and action are your preferred genres, I definitely recommend this. And clearly, there is more to come!
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
It is going to be very interesting to see just how this story goes.
I plan on letting others know just what a fantastic author this Declan is and encourage everyone to READ THE BOOK!
