it was ok
Read in January, 2012

The characters were likable enough and relate-able, the story was not bad, but there were a lot of clunky prose moments. I could not overlook the obvious Mother/daughter co-author tension. Too many times I felt like I had walked in on a fight. **Awkward** Nor was it enjoyable to be spoon fed SAT words.

The vampires in this book are not only vampires, they are also witches. Evangelical Christians were afraid that Harry Potter would be a corrupting influence on their children, as if it were a how to book instead of fiction, but this book includes a lot of detail rituals that appear to be based on Native American and Wiccan tradtions. I, personally, have no problem with that, but mention it because some parents might.

Also there are cats that are super smart (for cats) and also they are apparently familiars. I'm not saying there isn't room in literature for cats, but this was a little over the top cutesy for me.
