it was ok
Recommended to Chezon by: best friend
Recommended for: vampire fans
Read from August 04 to 12, 2011 — I own a copy , read count: 1

I really wish I could give this book 2.5 stars. I didn't hate it. It was just my least favorite of Pearl's books. (Let's just restate I am her biggest fan.)

What I realized is I was looking forward to catching up with the characters in the book. I'm well aware it's fiction. However, it's always had a touch of realism. However, with this novel, it was just too out there. I've not bought into the vampire phenomena-non that's overtaking the globe, so this felt a little forced on me. Of all of her novels, I'm eager to pass this one on. I'm already looking into what I can read next.

Sorry Pearl. I'll still remain a fan. I'll just have to wait for your next collective. This did NOT do it for me.

Wilhelmina Jenkins I really wonder why she went the route of vampires. She has such a solid fan base. I could challenge you for the "biggest fan" title, but I haven't read this one yet.
