Unfortunately, I sat down with it 5 times, read some, then eventually never picked it back up. It was an ok book, I just found other books after this that were MUCH MORE interesting. I hate to give this book 2 stars considering I didn't finish it. I mean, the girl gets her blood mixed with demons blood and she gets all of it's powers! Then a hot sexy vampire comes along who's "involved" with this demon so his yummy self is on "no touchy touchy" limits, (it's against code 963423.24 to touch any other female)but finally the chemistry between the 2 of them is too much to ignore.... ... And the demon is out for avenges! yup, sounds pretty interesting to me! So why couldn't I finish this???? That's the million dollar question I want to know. Bc this author STILL could not keep my interest. She made me feel like I had ADHD. lol I just couldn't sit still long enough to focus all of my attention on this book. Sucks, cuz I had hopes for it!
I see now that this is book number 4 to a series. When I read it, I didn't know that. So maybe that has something to do with why I couldn't get into it???? Maybe I'll give the other books a go.. hmm...(less)

Any die hard fan of vampires needs to own this! I've only skimmed through this book but even SCANNING through it quickly is so much fun! The book has post cards, letters, fliers, maps, pull out poems, famous pictures/paintings, "newspaper" clippings, film strips, posters, stickers, autographs, a mini book, vampire bite tattoos, bumper stickers, even a vampire mask! etc!!!!
This book talks about vampires from the very beginning, all through history, to todays vampires. Don't open this and expect it just to be about Twilight and True Blood. This book goes allll the way back, ALL through history! Which makes me appreciate it.... almost cherishes it. You'll find it even talks about the life style, bands/musicians, movies, shows, paintings, etc. This book really is a piece of art! ;)
I myself will not be taking anything out or using anything that comes with the book. It feels like it could be worth a million bucks one day. lol

I understand parents wanting to protect their kids from these kinds of things but I hope any parent does not live by this book. Please do more research. A LOT!
I don’t know if it was just me but the way Mary worded some things, it came off as she blamed men for this problem. WHATEVER. This just reminds me of a joke that Katt Williams said about woman blaming their self esteem on men. As he said “It is called SELF esteem! It is the esteem of your M***** F***ing self!”
If it wasn’t that then it’s all about the media or peer pressure. Maybe I just don’t get this whole peer pressure and media thing bc growing up, I was too hard headed to be fooled by any of that. Everyone goes through peer pressure through all stages of life but there is a thing called personal responsibility. Being a girl does not give you a free pass at it. She also acts like girls can’t protect themselves or don’t have any inner strength or common sense. And as a parent, you don’t need a book like this to tell you that you should teach your child that. You don’t just pop out a kid and then that’s it. That is the role of being a parent! Giving them a safe, happy home to live in, helping them, guiding them and teaching them. That right there helps tremendously with giving your child good roots, confidence and a good head on their shoulders. And if you need ANY book to tell you that, then maybe you shouldn't be a parent.
NO parent is perfect and we all make mistakes, of course, and your child will deal with challenges through life (you can’t keep them safe forever) but that’s life! Blaming this kind of stuff on social trends, does not cut it. At all!!!! Parents need to pay attention and do some homework on this subject. And by SUBJECT, I mean= *raising a bright kid *how to be there for them *not raising an air head *and understanding that self-esteem issues stem from MUCH MORE than just what the author liked to point her fingers at. What I DON'T mean= is finding ways to blame everything else but your parenting skills and/or lack of self responsibility. (less)

It's about a witch who runs into her on again, off again for the past 300 years vampire lover looking for her help with a vampire serial murder case. She has a really witty && sarcastic sense of humor. It can be quiet funny. haha My favorite characters in the books were her bunny slippers Fluff n Puff. For a pair of slippers they get into a lot of trouble && have major anger management issues. lol But if they were to ever really exist I would SO own a pair! lol Then her car is haunted by a ghost who can be a little annoying. Her jobs are also VERY interesting! Lifting hexes && driving a limo for different creatures. One of the creatures being a Java The Hut look alike that produces a very foul odour && has a crush on her. (He's a bit perverted X_X) lol There are many very interesting characters/creatures in this book. I really recommend it if you're into books like this. :)(less)
