Recommends it for: Fans of supernatural fiction, esp. with a Christian orientation
This combination vampire/werewolf yarn (a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award) was the perfect read for the Halloween season! Set partly in Britain and partly in New York City, the story begins in early 19th-century Wales, where a preacher's wife, just impregnated in a rape, is scratched deeply by a werewolf. Long after, in the present, her daughter Ceese, bearing the werewolf curse (which carries with it strange telepathic powers) is "drawn' by her long-ago friend Penny to the castle owned by a ...more

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book through a giveaway. No stipulations were placed upon my receipt of the book, but I feel an honest review is appropriate in exchange.

Synopsis: What happens when a determined werewolf and a skeptical vampire join forces at the request of an aging friend? Will they succeed in finding a way to rid themselves of their respective curses in spite of their natural hatred for each other or will they suffer at the hands of a radical and evil stem cell resear

If I could give it 2 1/2 stars that's what it would get. I liked the story but Sue Dent is not the best writer. Sometimes her characters come across as immature. There is too much bickering amongst them. I had to constantly remind myself that these were adults I was reading about, not little kids.

Review by Jill Williamson

Penelope has a plan. She calls her dear friend Ceese, who happens to be a werewolf, to her castle home so that Ceese can help Penelope’s vampire friend Richard. Ceese and Richard instantly hate one another, but Penelope begs that they try to get along. She insists that they need each other to free themselves from their curses—vampire and werewolf—so that they may make it ti heaven someday. Ceese wants to be free very much, but Richard doesn’t believe it is possible. Pene

I have gotten to know the author from Shoutlife and had been meaning to get to buy the book, but had yet to get around to it. One day I was out with a friend who was an aspiring writer and I told her what I knew about this book (from the author and the many wonderful comments I read). It inspired her to not only finish her own book, but read this one as well. I was so inspired and blogged about it. I received the hardcover from the author herself a week later!

The problem with faith writers is th

First, some fun and facts:
When my office received this book, a handsome hardcover from Journey Stone Creations, and it found its way to my hands, I looked it over thoroughly and sent author Sue Dent an email confirming its receipt. On an odd note, the wolf on its cover was exactly the same wolf on my computer screen's wallpaper, and I held one up to the other amused. I'd been made aware of Sue's existence while browsing through that vast social bird's nest called Myspace, we corresponded a few

This was a very interesting read. A vampire/werewolf novel written from a Christian perspective. I did enjoy the book, but I will also confess that for about half the book, I literally hated the werewolf character, the girl the book is named after. She is an extremely difficult person to get along with. Granted she has little understanding of modern practices and customs, but she seems to work really hard at being difficult.

The other main character, Richard, seems rather arrogant at times, and

I adore this fantasy. Funny thing is that when I first went to read this, I had a strong bias against it and didn't read past the first paragraph. Two years later, I opened it up to give it another try...and was hooked. Although I found a few mistakes, the story was so good that it didn't matter.

Here's my Amazon review:

"At first? Reluctant. Next? Intrigued. By the second page? Thoroughly engaged. Sue has brought the urban mythos of vampires and werewolves to the spiritual plane. She causes her

This book gave me a strong feeling of religion mixed with the idea of the "Damed." Main character Ceese and Richard are damed, but in Ceese's lifetime she was a religious person, so now she tries to spend her time reading prayers and struggling through the Bible. These book is so unique and I looked every minute of it. Though the prologue was confusing I found that when I skipped it I had an easier time enjoying the book. Thank you so much Sue Dent for writing something so new and creative.

Author Sue Dent is by far one of the best writters that I have had a privilige of enjoying! Never Ceese takes you on a journey that is so in depth that you feel as though you are along for the ride! Her description of characters and places and situations provides you with excellent background so that you know and understand exactly what is happening in said time. A rollercoaster of emotions ensues as you read and you will keep reading!!
DeAnna Newsome
Not as fast-paced as many of the books I read, but it is very good. Sue Dent does a very good job of getting you emotionally involved with the characters. I found myself, even with my busy schedule, looking at the book and HAVING to give in and sit to read more.

UPDATE: I couldn't read past a few pages it was so poorly written. Very disappointed!
