As it turns out, it’s a means to which the Immortal Lord Blake Night keeps the other immortals under his control. Helping the other immortals become free of that influence is not easy task. As it turns out, Julian is somehow linked to Blake—but how deep is that link?
Belinda Laj has created a wildly entertaining and unique new vampire world. I was hooked from the very beginning. Julian is interesting, angry, sexy, confused, and likable. This book was targeted toward teen readers, but I think adult vampire fans will love it, as well. I know I did!
Unmarked Vampire grabs your attention immediately from page one. I am a huge fan of paranormal novels especially Vampire ones and I love to see the different spins authors put on the Vampire lore. Belinda Laj totally gave the old Vampire myth a new, cool and very different background than the ones we fans have already seen, where Vampires can be part Angel and Demon as well. The main protagonist is Julian Laurent. A nineteen year old, very angry and confused Vampire who doesn't even know what he is and can't even remember what happened yesterday , save that he experienced unbearable pain writhing on the floor of his bedroom wishing to die before he found him self in a coffin hyperventilating in horror.
Belinda Laj has created a very multi dimensional character in Julian. She perfectly captures the angst, stubbornness and even the lack of common sense that most teens are prone to.The description of the academy for Immortals where the story takes place is spot on. I could visualize the wet dreary stones of the dungeon like room Julian wakes up in.
She did such a great job of revealing the plot of the story layer by layer. It kept me intrigued until the final page!
I also couldn't believe that it was translated from Italian. It was almost flawless and nothing was lost in the translation. I am happy to know that Unmarked Vampire is a series and can not wait to read more from Belinda Laj's wonderful imagination.
It certainly isn't easy, but it's something that Belinda Laj has managed to do in her Unmarked Vampire story.
I'm a supernatural junkie and love, more like adore the vampire genre; so I have pretty much read all of the classics and most popular books and series.
So when got the opportunity to read a book about vampires in exchange for my honest review, I basically jumped at it and started reading right away.
So what can I said about Unmarked Vampire other than the fact that I liked it, the book was fun and easy to read, with little to not typing mistakes and an excellent redaction; so I have to give kudos to the translator Jaqueline Skewes for a job well done.
As for the book itself, it was interesting reading this kind of story with a man as the protagonist; since the genre seems to have been mainly dominated by female heroes for the longest time.
That being said, I didn't find Julian that compelling or charming, whether the author planned for that to be the case all along, I do not know; half the time I found him kind of annoying and I couldn't well grasp why he reacted like he did to most of the things or people around him.
Julian's relationship with his sire, also reminded me a little of Anne Rice's works -which I love!- so there's that, and will surely be quite fascinated and entertained by it.
And while I truly enjoyed this book, it seems clear, at least to me that the author is gunning for a younger audience, what with the school setting, the romance that can be glimpsed at times and the overall feel that the book gives.
It's a very interesting, and entertaining vampire story, although it took me some chapters to get me hooked. Julian, the main character, was really annoying at the beginning and I think that was the reason. I wanted to beat him every two seconds. But at some point the story takes rhytm and you can't put it down.
It's good to see character developing and I think if you wake up in a coffin you will not be in a good mood. So you have to give him and this book the chance, specially for Hunter and other good secondary characters. And more specially because the story develops in a good way and in some twists you will not expect.
I dont'want to tell about the story, I prefer the reader to discover it.
For sure I recommend it!
