The plot of this book was unique and refreshing. Two of my favourite things --- a dystopian setting and vampires!
Sloane, our main character was a human living in the safety of a protected community heads into the Red Sector in search of the brother she left behind 3 years before. She finds so much more then that. Aden a vampire in control of his mind and hunger finds Sloane looking for her brother and changes her. I wish Sloane would have been more hateful toward Aden. He made her into what she most feared, what she most hated. I wanted more development for them I liked their romance but it seemed too rushed.
The secondary characters were easy to love or hate. It didn't matter but I got a good idea of who everyone was and it is going to make the second book in the series so much more enjoyable. I'm looking forward to seeing more of the love triangle that was present in this book. I'm still on the fence about who I like more.
If there was one thing I could change about this book it would likely be the length. I wanted more form this story. I wanted to watch the relationship develop more between Aden and Sloane I wanted to feel more suspense leading up the that huge cliff hanger ending.
I will definitely check out the next book in the series... I have to know what is going to happen next!
This book was provided free to me by author! Thanks, I really enjoyed reading it! (less)

Especially the last half of it. It was so full of energy and emotions that I had a hard time dealing with it all.
I couldn't imagine losing everything I've ever known especially if the alternative is living in a tiny little ship filled with too many people or ending up in out space where you will die almost immediately.
I loved the romance between Trella and Riley. It was very sweet. It sort of reminded me of POison Study which is very welcome in my mind.
I'm looking forward to more from this author in the future. (less)

I feel almost as if this book has torn me to pieces inside and I am slowly putting the pieces back together.
A war between the Capitol and rebels is in full swing and Katniss and everyone she cares about has been thrown in the middle. We watch as Katniss struggles through the war and becomes the symbol that people look to for comfort. We watch as so many people that Katniss cares about have been tortured, maimed or killed.
We lose so many wonderful people in this book and it shows us just what war is really about. No one wins and everyone suffers.
I was pleased with the ending but by that time I was so twisted up about everything else that happened that I couldn't find myself being overly joyful. The part that really spoke to me was in the end when we see how Katniss is still living with the tortures she endured in both the Games and War.
This book really touched me and it was wonderful to read!
