I don't particularly like vampire stories but I loved this book. In the end, all that matters is whether and to what extent a book gives you that "can't put it down" feeling. I love when a book grabs me by the brain and won't let me go and this book succeeded mightily at this. About 1/4 of the way through I started to get the itch to put reading it above pretty much all other activities.

This book contains brutal violence which could be triggering for some readers, but it is never exploitative.

2015 update- I changed my rating because I find myself thinking about this book all the time. So I can't deny the author a better rating. I'd give 5 stars if the sequel would ever come out. It's a forever cliff hanger but this book if still well worth the read. Just hope the rest of the trilogy comes out sooner rather then later.

Okay, I would like to 3star(I liked)this book but I have to say that it was ok because I just feel wrong to saying I liked it. The writer was no violently, disturbingly

The first vampire book I ever read was Dracula by Bram Stoker. Yes, the classic vampire tale. I found it thrilling and mesmerizing. Since then, I've managed to read a few other vampire tales, from Anne Rice's Louis and Lestat and Stephenie Meyer's Twilight to the monstrous creatures hiding among us in Jim Butcher's Dresden Files... none of them prepared me adequately for Morgan Gallagher's Changeling.

Morgan takes us to a place where vampires are cruel and sadistic. They have lost their humanity,

For many readers this will surely be something but not of the books to pick up if you don't exactly like reading about violent situations or abusive circumstances. Its shocking. Terrifying horrific even. If your ok with Horror novels with these circumstances then your in for a magnificent book. If not this isn't a book for you.

Wow. This book was amazing. The mixture of action and internal emotions worked very well, though I have to admit that there were a couple of times I had to skim over some of the internal monologue parts, because they were just too much to take. But that was because the truth in there was . . . just too true and too painful.

But, the story was engaging, and the action (though absolutely brutal!) kept the story moving and the pacing was spot on!

I was lucky enough to win this book, and I enjoyed it. This was the first vampire book I have read. While it took a little getting used to, it was overall really good. Some of the decribed scenes were a little disturbing, but it made me keep reading because I felt bad to Joanne the main character and wanted to see what she would do, if she would/could get away, etc. This book was very well written, and based on the ending I do see myself readng the whole Triology
This one was my own fault. There were scenes early on that weren’t . . . um, my cup of tea. But it was listed as a horror story, so I assumed the plot would develop a bit more. Unfortunately it didn’t, and in my opinion, this should be clearly listed as erotica with a strong focus on BDSM and power-play. I did manage to finish it, but the subject matter wasn’t for me and the writing was rather poor. It took over nine sentences to say “She found the lamp and turned it on” and so much time was was ...more

I really just could not get into this book past the sample and that says a lot since I ALWAYS finish a book no matter how horrible it may be. I love horror, don't mind gore but the personal violation that took place of the girl while unconscious just disturbed me.

Too much fluff. I kept wishing the author would just get to it! It could have been so much better. Having said that, I will give the next book a chance, hoping it can redeem itself.
