What I liked about this book:
I am a big fan of vampire/horror books! I haven’t read one in a while, so this was quite a change in genre for me from what I have been reading lately!
The first few sentences in this book were shocking! Rose came home to find out that her father killed her mother and siblings by slashing their throats. Rose goes on to tell her story of what happens after that.
It seems like since Twilight there have been so many new vampire books. The House On Blackstone Moor really had it’s own unique style. It had a really gothic feel to it. I really had no idea what was going to happen next in the story either. It was not predictable at all. The end was quite a surprise!
What I didn’t like about this book:
The font was very small. I downloaded the pdf file to my Kindle, and I had to enlarge the text and turn my Kindle to landscape mode to read it. I did read part of it on my computer though, and the text was much easier to read there.
There were a few errors, but nothing that made the book hard to read.
Sometimes there was just so much going on with all of the vampires and demons. At other times, it was slow and I found my mind wandering. So for me, the book did not have a constant flow to it.
Would I recommend?
Yes. This is not at all like Twilight. Don’t get me wrong–I loved Twilight–but I don’t like reading books that are trying to be like Twilight. Carole Gill has her own writing style and you will not feel like you are reading something familiar. Even though I thought there could have been a little better flow to the book, I am still glad that I read it and look forward to reading the sequel. ...more

April found out that she isn't totally human and she found out some surprises about her parents as well. She fell in love with Robert who is a human, but had other ties with Arken that had to do more with was she is rather than her emotional feelings.
It was interesting because in the book there were maps of the militia headquarters. At the end of the book there were pictures of the characters, which I should have really skipped to before I read the book. Maybe This should have been in the beginning? There were many different characters and unusual names which were a little hard to keep track of. I concentrated on pretty much April, Robert and Arken. The rest got kind of fuzzy sometimes.
It did keep me wondering what was going to happen, and it had a good ending. Although, I have to say there could have been a little more romance. What happened between April and Arken that was revealed toward the end made me wonder how that could have happened....more

The way they spoke was really strange, but I read it. I started reading the second story and could not get into it at all. I kind of flipped through the rest and said forget it. When I originally got this book through MELCat, I thought it was a different book. I meant to get Lover Eternal. Oh well....more
