Aside from the blood hunger and lust for his mate, and Josephine's empathy, the entire story was remarkedly like any para-military/action romance. There was very little interaction with other people, or exploration of vampiric culture. In the prequel, I Burn For You, there is an excursion into vampire society, and getting to know other vampires and the culture.
In this book, they run and hide, hardly speaking to anyone else, meet one other vampire at the end, and that's it. In the epilogue, it's mentioned that the heroine was brought home to meet the rest of the vampire family, but apparently that wasn't interesting to actually let the reader read what happened. It wasn't until hundreds of pages in that the reader learns anything about the complex vampire culture, so the first few hundreds of pages is just like an action romance.
Also, the font was so large, it was very annoying, not unlike Johanna Lindsey novels, making it seem that the story was "blown up" to fill the requisate number of pages.
So I think the story did read quickly, had action, but it could have been better, if there had been more interesting supporting characters, more relationships, more insight into the complex vampiric culture we saw in I Burn For You, and smaller font/smaller spacing for the page typset.
It took half the book to get her to beleive he was a real vampire. Although he had already bit her neck and drank her blood. They had already shared nightmares and she had come to care for him. She still betrayed him to Gavin.
According to the book he is a prime. It seems all they do is think about, and have (...). I'm not complaining, I just knew from the first chapter that they would somehow wind up in the hands of his captors.
Why couldn't he get blood from someone else, if he was so determined not to suck on her neck, And he needed it so bad.
I finished the book and I will buy her next one. But I hope the capturing is out of her system. It seems that in every one of the last few vampire books I have read, someone wants Immortality. They think they only have to capture a vampire to get it.
She could have left out about 100 pages and still got the same book.
The first book concentrated on one faction of Vampire society, the Clans; this book features a representative of the Families. Each group sees the other through an ethnocentric point of view, which is refreshingly humanlike - - - I can't wait to see what she does with a member of the Tribes as a main charactor, or better yet, what the first-person view of a female vampire would be, considering their somewhat restricted biology. What I didn't like was the introduction of a paramilitary "DPI" like evil organization intent on developing immortality by experimenting on Vampires in a labratory. Hmm... read this elsewhere. She loves alpha males, fast pace, intricate personal relationships, and invests her writing with good background detail.
This was overall an engaging read, and you should read both this and "I BURN FOR YOU", if you haven't already.
