Cristin This one looks interesting. How are you liking it? One of your Borders finds?


message 2: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN It's very good actually! Very similar to V.A. With gods and half-gods. You would like this Cristin! Actually not a border find but still a good deal, lol I downloaded it last night from B&N.

It's actual release date is October 18th but I was happy to see last night it was released early digitally and it's only $3.99.


message 3: by Mariya (new)

Mariya I think I heard that Amazon and other's are releasing it earlt b/c the release change was short notice and it wasn't registered into the system correctly or something. It was suppose to be released September something.


message 4: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Oh really? It still shows the paperback pre-order and the digital wasn't. Either way I was happy to read it early! I can totally see the similarities you and I spoke about after you read it. Call me nostalgic but I'm hoping to fill the V.A. Void LOL!

Aiden is swoon worthy ;) I don't think I've read about your flame yet though. So tell me; Who will I like, you should know?? I'm curious.


message 5: by Mariya (new)

Mariya Well, You know in Vampire Academy I loved both Dimitri and Adrian! I mean in lots other love triangles I sometimes could choose one of the other and dislike the other but in VA I loved them equally but thought it would make sense for Rose to be with Dimitri.

In Halfblood. I feel the same way, though I may be leaning towards Seth a bit more. Basically, Aiden is DImitri and Seth is Adrian. Hahaha.

So I have no idea who you'll love b/c in VA I LOVED THEM BOTH! Like in Nightshade it was different b/c you'd have to be insane not to choose Ren! But in Half-blood the men are both equally delicious! =DDDDD


message 6: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Well you know I loved both as well but just wanted Dimitri for Rose. So on that were equal. I bet I will probably feel the same way as you do because even when we rate certain series differently you and I always lust after the same gorgeous fictional males. ;-) lol.

You know what's crazy, is that I've actually came across reviews of Nightshade with sayings like "OMG I love Shay" ughhhh I wish their was a "dislike" button just for those rants!!! HAHA!!

Oh my beautifully arrogant Alpha-Licious Ren, who wouldn't want him??! ;-) Is January here yet?!;-)

P.s. Cristin I've been reading some excellent books lately and I don't think you have them added to your TBR list yet! :-)


message 7: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Mariya-And I just met Deacon.....Now, he reminds me of Adrian!;)


message 8: by Mariya (new)

Mariya I don't even remember who that is now. LOL
It must be Seth! At least I think so.


message 9: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Lol! Deacon is Aiden's promiscuous and very flirtatious brother.


message 10: by Mariya (new)

Mariya Oh! See how long ago I read this book? Too long. Hahaha.


message 11: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Lol! I'm the same way with books I read last month! LOL


message 12: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Okay Mariya, Seth (view spoiler) has made his first appearance. :-) he's described as incredibly hot!


message 13: by Mariya (new)

Mariya Hot and delicious! Hehehe. =DDDDDD


message 14: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Hehe totally!!! (view spoiler)


message 15: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Mariya-I loved it!! ;-) I love both Aiden and Seth, but I just can't get enough of that Apollyon bad boy! ;) hehe


message 16: by Anna (new)

Anna Glad you liked it so much!!!


message 17: by Merita (new)

Merita Seeing as though you compared it to VA i am definantly putting this in my "to read" pile :)


message 18: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Anna-You were right I absolutly loved it to pieces! ;-) Alex and Caleb were awesome. All of the men were delicious, but I'm so obsessed with Seth, I can't wait to see what happens with him. :)

Merita-It was awesome! As a huge V.A. Fan I find it easy to say that it was just as wonderful as V.A. except I think this first book may have even been more exciting than V.A. You will love it, an easy 5 stars for me.:-)


message 20: by Anna (new)

Anna Both Seth and Caleb are perfect!Well,I just can't wait to read the sequel!The waiting time is killing me!


message 21: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN I agree! I hate waiting. It's going to kill me as well as you! Lol. I imagine the next book will be even better but it's so difficult to imagine what will unfold with the next book because Half-Blood had plenty of action, adventure, and romance.....basically I just know I want more please!!!;-)


message 22: by Anna (new)

Anna And keep in mind I read this book sometime in summer...Ughhhhh!As soon as my pb copy comes I will do a re-read!
Oh well,one thing is for certain,there's more of Seth to come!


message 23: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN I know:) I remember when you read it. I barely read it a week ago and I'm already anxious to get my hands on this book. This book will be a fun re-read as well. I loved all the men in this book but just knowing that Seth has to be in this book has me giddy with excitement like a little school girl.;-)


message 24: by Anna (last edited Oct 03, 2011 06:14AM) (new)

Anna He he!I can see it from now,picking one between Caleb and Seth will be difficult!


message 25: by Roxanne (new)

Roxanne Instead of a 'like' button there should be a 'LOVE' button. Just reading your review has made me turn all fan girly and bounce up and down in my chair.

Great Review!!

HAHA I love it, best comment EVER Roxanne!! ;-) Thank you. I just loved this book, and I already know you did too! So it's awesome!

Hehehe! Good! You like them both! Seth is a total hottie but I guess Aiden is as well! AHHHHHHH! I CAN'T CHOOSE!!! This is just like VA! I love both the love interests! =DDDDDDDDDD


message 29: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Mariya-I liked them both, however Seth is my Obsession favorite!!!!!! ;-) I cannot wait to read Pure.;)

Do you like Aiden at all?"


If I remember the name correctly Aiden is Alex's friend right?In that case I loved him as well!


message 31: by Mariya (new)

Mariya Aiden is the the main love interest the guy who is training her to fight.


message 32: by Anna (new)

Anna I have all the names mixed up after so much time I'm afraid.I only remember Alex and Seth... for certain.A re-read is a must...


message 33: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Anna-Haha! You are mistaken...it has been a while for you.
Aiden is her Hermatoi trainer
Caleb is her best friend
Seth is The Apollyon!

Thanks for the clarification Mariya.:)


message 34: by Anna (new)

Anna Yeap,all sorted out now!I've never been good with names, I know,I'm ashamed!


message 35: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Haha! No need to be ashamed, it happens to me ALL the time! Lol. Of the men which is your favorite??


message 36: by Anna (new)

Anna I'm afraid Aiden...The whole "agapi mou" thing made me melt...Being Greek and that I just couldn't resist a guy who spoke that phrase!But Seth is seriously hot on the other hand...And we didn't get to know half about him yet...What a mix up!


message 37: by Mariya (new)

Mariya SETH, MY LOVE!!!!


message 38: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Anna-I was going to ask you if you loved this book so much more because it was based on Greek mythology and you being from Greece and all....

What does that phrase "agapi mou" mean?

Mariya & Anna-
I loved Aiden and Seth but I always fall for the mysterious bad boys...so Seth was a little more my type, however if I could I would choose both!!!!!!


message 39: by Anna (new)

Anna Well,I'd love it either way believe me!I don't think i'd love it any less if it was based on another universe.
Agapi mou means my love...!!!And it wasn't just the phrase,it was the way it was so casually used in the story and in the whole scene that made me swoon!It was completely unexpected!


message 40: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Haha! I'm going to go back later and re-read that scene now that I know what it means! Thanks for the info because I totally missed that phrase. Aiden Definitly was swoon worthy! :-)


message 41: by Roxanne (new)

Roxanne I didn't like Seth to begin with, he was too arrogant for my tastes but by the end of the book I was hanging on his every word. I think we'll see a completely different side to him in book two. Even his little gestures made me swoon, like when he kisses Alex on the forehead at the end of the book. *wistful sigh*

However I still adore Aiden, especially when he is glaring at Seth whenever he's with Alex :P I love jealous men! It'll be interesting to see how she copes with loving one of them and destined for the other.


message 42: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Unfortunately I'm a magnet for arrogant jealous mean in real life and fiction. Lol. It's like a magnet pulls us together so of course I loved both Aiden for his protective jealousy and Seth for being his arrogant mystical self. Lol. Both of these men had me fanning myself!!! Lol.

They're both awesome, like if I was going to rate them they're both 10's. But I love Seth!! :) but I love Aiden as well! Haha, I'm fickle....;-)

I'm really interested in the difference between loving who you love and and who your destined to be with! This series is going to be Awesome!! I just loved this book.


message 43: by ♥ Sarah ♥ (new)

♥ Sarah ♥ This sounds SO GOOD! I can't wait to read it. I'm also a huge VA fan. I read Daimon the other day and now I seriously need to get my hands on this asap! lol


message 44: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Oh yeah I have Daimon too, I usually read pre-quals after the first book so I haven't finished it yet, but Half Blood is excellent!!!! If you enjoyed Daimon then you will love Half Blood as I did! :)


message 45: by ♥ Sarah ♥ (new)

♥ Sarah ♥ Yeah with some prequels I almost wish I did that. But normally I'm a freak about reading everything in order! lol Plus, I didn't have the first book on hand and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. :-P


message 46: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN A lot of people read the pre-quel first with this series. For me I usually understand the pre-quel better after the first book is the only reason I do it. :) You should read Half-Blood soon, please let me know what you think of it?? Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!


message 47: by Wendy Darling (new)

Wendy Darling Ah. I'm glad to hear you still enjoyed it despite all the Vampire Academy talk! I've had an ARC for months and months and just never read it because of that, even though I really liked the prequel.

You've given me hope, Miss Vain. You've given me hope.


message 48: by Mariya (new)

Mariya The VA similarities did really bother me. I"m not gonna lie and I was like WTF?! TOtal copy! But it is a bit different once you get through the entire book and it is enjoyable. I'm hoping the sequel will be better though, actually I heard that it is awesome. I just have to read it now! Hahaha! I want more Seth! Totally!


message 49: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Wendy, I read it so long ago (September I think) and I was re-reading the male love interests in the book and clicked "edit" review instead of "read" review...So it's not super fresh on my memory, but I thought it was really good.

I actually felt this series might actually have the potential to be better than VA.

It does have some VA similarities but as you read further on in the story they no longer exist.

I really really truly hope I'm not giving you false hope Wendy!;)


message 50: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Mariya, once you're like 20% into the book I remember thinking those VA similarities fade.

Seth! Seth! Seth!!

Wendy you'll love Seth too;)
