It's an interesting concept to begin with and I have to say that I welcomed the idea with open arms, NOT cause I am a hardcore fan of The Vampire Diaries *hangs her head and looks around*, frankly I have only watched season 1 *gasps* and that was it, so I'm far from being an actual fan...
BUT regarding this story, if you take it out of the background context and read it without knowing who these characters really are...then the story given here, shows a sequence in a time span, a fantasy adventure of a frozen time, magic powers and mystic creatures, namingly one demon that took over a small town of Westbrook and turning it into a ghost town, with all the people in it, turned either into the ghosts themselves by either violent or natural death, and when a witch Bonnie Bennett goes onto her improvised journey, she suddenly ends up right there, pulled in by the restless ghosts and their call, she's slowly realizing the past events of 1967, through flashes of their memories and visions...
and what truly happened to this town, its people and especially the crime that happened to end the lives of a young girl Abigail, and her mother, revealing their restless, yearning souls seeking justice for their tragically ended lives.
Through out the past timeline that Bonnie is experiencing, she calls in Damon Salvatore to help her, save the town, but they ended up trying to save their own lives...
This was fun, refreshing and entertaining. Regardless the fact that I was, in fact, familiar with the characters from the series, you don't have to watch the TV show to enjoy this story, cause other than the same names the characters have like in the show, this story offeres an alternate "reality/fantasy" independent of the mentioned series.
But as such, I needed just a little bit more deeper emotional development for Damon & Elena, (so I wouldn't rely on the notion of their epic love, known from the Vampire diaries series) other than that, I loved the action sequences, the imagination and description of the scenery and action are impeccable, but that's a known fact in JP's writing.
I did enjoy this book and it did keep me reading until the end, but I felt like there was too much going on and that it would have been best to have it kept simplified instead of trying to get the reaction out of you. By getting the reader’s attention, sometimes it’s best to just go with simple and by putting a small twist on it will gain that wow factor that you are aiming for with the readers. It doesn’t mean to say that this story wasn’t good, because I know for a fact that JP has a really good writing style and the story was there, it was just a little overcomplicated at times. However, I’m sure that others will think differently from me, but that’s okay.
J.P Uvalle has truly impressed me. Although I am a huge Vampire Diaries fan, I never really read any books in this genre. I think I will be reading a bunch more now, because she has really broadened my horizons!! I myself am such a fan of the characters and she wasn't just true to them, she made them shine off the pages!
Uvalle has a real talent for storytelling that had me hooked from the very first letter!
I don't want to give too much away, you will have to read it for yourself. BUT, trust me, you will thank me later!
