After reading the synopsis for this book my first thoughts were that it sounded like a post-apocalyptic version of the film "Daybreakers".

My first thought upon seeing the cover for this book was 'Why is there a tear running down from the MIDDLE of her eye? And why does she have no expression on her face?"

After reading several friends' reviews and status updates I am a bit conflicted about if I even want to attempt to read this book. I am not a fan of Julie Kawagwa, the only thing I read from her was the short story from Valentine's of this year and I was not impressed by the plot or her writing style...but I do like vampires and I liek post-apocalyptic type stuff so maybe?

Yes, yes we do. Why the hell did I think it was called Daylighters? Editing now.

What freaked you out about it?

Amber J. I get that it was supposed to be beautiful and symbolic and everything (and I'm not squeamish) but it was even too much for me.

Because the vampires feed on him and they become human, but then more vampires come and feed on them and they become human, but then more vampires come and it was all teeth and blood and body parts and I was like, "Oh God, when is this going to stop!" lol

LOL (oops, I guess I meant not-quite-the-end end)

I have put it on hold for now as I am just not feeling it.


Katie I agree with Stargirl. The first part of the book is good, but the second half of the novel drags and takes the story in a different direction.

Mary I didn't enjoy her Iron Fey series but I have to recommend this book. The heroine is actually smart and thinks about her actions before she does them. I really am loving this book.
