In the beginning of the story I had a really hard time keeping up with what was going on because so many characters kept showing up, and different things happening to them. Apparently, I'm easily confused. I will say on some stories that would probably work for me as long as I'm eased into it, and I can separate what's going on. Does that make sense? Don't feel bad it didn't to me either.
Once Lily was away from the person taking care of her, and at her new school that's when I started to enjoy the story a little more. I found myself being able to enjoy the characters. (at least some others I didn't like to much.) Lily was introduced to Xander and Drew who were the sons of Arthur an old friend of Lily's parents, and also Roxanne who came to find help for her parents. Like I said it was at times confusing, but I got use to it.
Part of the story consisted of The Goddess of Night, which you realize soon who she is. It's said that there's always just one and when a new one is born the other dies. Who vice versa I can't remember. I think this part intrigued because I've read different books that have used her as part of the storyline. (namely The house of Night series) So to me it was nice to see her used a little differently.
I think it has potential to be a lot more, and I was sad to just see it end so hopefully I'll be able to read more. There were errors throughout, but I'm not perfect, I'm not an editor. (I'm horrible at commas and punctuation. As you can probably tell.) so it didn't bother me as much as it did some people. I read because I enjoy the characters and the storybuilding.
This is a page turning read from start to finish! I loved it!
Lily Westbrook is an interesting character! She is aware that she is a half witch/half vampire, but she doesn't know the rest of it! She is a woman with a very powerful bloodline and a destiny to match; that of being the Goddess of Night. I liked her very much, and although I have only met her in print, she felt real to me!
This is an exciting novella! As I said, I found this book a page turner from the first page! This story is mainly told from Lily's point of view, but there are several characters in this short story that also have their say. This gives the story some depth to it. However, I did feel that I was literally dumped into the middle of a story. It was a bit of a shock, but that jolt gave me an insight into Lily's character I would have missed otherwise; She tends to be a risk taker and a bit hot headed. However, as she learns more of her destiny, she starts to think before leaping into dangerous situations. I liked seeing her mature in this way.
I also liked meeting the other characters in the book, especially Lily's Aunt Trudy, Arthur, Nathaniel, Xander and Drew. However, there are two characters that I didn't like. They were Samuel and Alexander. These two characters define the meaning of "bad guys". One's a witch, and the other is a vampire, but both of them made my skin crawl! There are more than a few twists in this short story, but the cliffhanger ending has me wanting to read the next novella as soon as possible!
Ley Mesina has written an amazing novella that captured my imagination, and brought the characters to life! Her story is fast paced, but not rushed, and full of danger and excitement!
I highly recommend this novella if you love YA, paranormal romances or stories about witches and vampires! - Lynn Worton
At the same time, a power full witch, Samuel, has been taking powerful witches and having vampire Nathaniel turns them into vampires. The idea is that they will be more powerful than the regular vampires and will make the perfect army to eradicate vampires. But something is going wrong and most of those turned don't survive.
Lily has gone to Kensington University where she meets Wendy, a girl from her dorm. But she starts seeing visions of Wendy being attacked by a vampire. She also stumbles upon her cousins that were waiting on their missing family that has been guarding Lily. Then Lily has a vision of her father, alive and in the cabin with the vampire that attacked Wendy.
I really liked this story. There was a great plot and action that sucked me right in. The only negative thing I can come up with is I wish it were longer. But no matter, I cannot wait to read other stories from Ley Mesina. This is a great young adult story.
