Maybe that was the problem. I know how hard authors work and hate leaving poor reviews, but I have to be honest, my hopes were WAY too high.
While the story initially grabbed my attention, within a few chapters I was over it. I did finish it, just because I thought it might get better, but meh. The heroine, whose name I can't even remember is self centered and whiny. The two vampire brothers in a field reminded me too much if vampire diaries. The introduction of other magical creatures, like gargoyles and leprechauns was an interesting idea, but poorly executed. The story was pretty cliche. And the villain was ,completely obvious and almost non-existent until the anti-climatic showdown at the end.
It's clear the author has some raw talent and potential with interesting ideas, but this just didn't hit the mark for me, and I will not be continuing the series.
All that aside, it was a cute, very quick and easy read. Character development was minimal and you need to figure out Taylor, Hannah and the Evans twins on your own. That however, is not difficult since there is little depth to any of them. The plot is also pretty simple, with a few twists and turns that you can see coming a mile away.
Finally, the ending (if you can call it that) does nothing more than set you up for book 2 and the rest of the series.
My rating: Just okay as a standalone book. Perhaps a good introduction to the series?
When Taylor accepts a date with Eric she is surprised when he takes her for sandwiches in a secluded place at school. What should be a chance to know each other quickly turns dangerous when Eric’s sinister motives come out. When he kidnaps the RA it’s up to Taylor to save her but she learns that there is more going on at VanCamp that just trying to pass school. She also learns that her roommate knows more than she’s letting on. Will Taylor survive her first year of school or not make it to her first class.
I liked Taylor she’s an ok character but not my favorite of them all. I found myself liking Hannah there was just something about her that made me smile. I also liked Tom and Joseph even though they aren’t as key of players but I would hope to see more of them in the series. In the first book Taylor hasn’t had a lot of time to grow as a character but I see lots of potential for growth as she learns more about who she is.
I picked this one up as a kindle freebie a while back. The synopsis captured my attention right away. The concept is interesting it's just the story is a not boring. It all happened so far over a few days I felt that I didn’t have time to connect with the characters or for them to grow like I would have liked. For as many pages as the book had not a lot happened, and I wanted more. The ending also fell short for me. I might just be on an action packed kick and it was missing something. That being said I think it has potential this is a debut book so maybe the next one will be better. I just really wanted to love it but I didn't. I don't think I would pay for the next one but if it was a freebie on kindle maybe.
It was an interesting book. I was able to read through it, but I felt like something was missing. Can't put my finger on it. That's why I gave it 4 stars. And as a bonus, I liked the idea of Leprechauns being part of society which isn't written often.
