Belens Audio Book Review

This is a Young Adult story that reads very young. Graham is thirteen, just figuring out he's gay, has no friends, is super small and "puny", and exceedingly lonely. After deciding to take his life one day he's stopped when he sees a wolf in the forest where he hangs out by his lonesome.

Certain reactions o ...more

Kill it, kill it with fire! All the worst pastiches of romantic vampire fiction can be found in this book. I have a feeling the author has read the vile 'Twilight' books and though "Mmm you know what the world needs, it needs a gay version; but filled with an even wetter main character and more clichéd filled dialogue..."

By the time I reached the 74% mark, I did the humane thing and burnt my kindle and scattered the ashes to the four corners of the world, in the hope that this book will never r

This was clearly not up to par of the previous books, I found it to be quite excessive at times to the point where I skipped over a lot of the text that had really not much to do with the actual story line.
