did not like it
Read in May, 2012

This is a terrible book. Absolutely awful. For one, new girl meets vampire boy, hmm sound familiar? The author ha clearly tried to change a few things to make it different from twilight but it's essentially The same. 

Stories where the main character keeps hinting at some terrible event that happened in the past are frustrating, and this is what happens repeatedly in this book. 

The main character is even more sullen and unlikeable than Bella, if that's possible, and it really seems like the author does not have enough experience with genuine human interactions. Ara gives David a long lingering look in the hallway after bumping into him, and he's embarrassed? The WHOLE SCHOOL is talking about it? In real life I doubt anyone would even notice, let alone care that she LOOKED at him. 

In all honesty this person has a flair for words, but there is just no realism to this story and no originality. I can only assume they are very young, in which case they have a huge potential and I encourage them to keep trying.

Konica Sh Totally agree with you. I don't want to sound rude but the writer outta have some real life first hand experience before creating such a pathetic teenage character. Come on! Are girls really that cheap? she looked so mentally retarded :(

Alicia Keeler If you even bothered to read it right you would have seen she went through a major trauma which in "real life" can alter your personality into something unhuman like and she was really messed up from it..but I'm sure both of you never even finished the's actually an amazing series completely different from twilight.

message 3: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Driscoll I've read the entire series and it is not a thing like twilight...Young girl falls for vampire the similarities pretty much end there. Dark secrets is much darker than twilight and an amazing series of books.

Kenna Roberts This may sound weird, but Ara reminded me of Anastasia Steele way more than Bella. I'm not a fan of either of those characters or series. I did finish the book, it wasn't my type of story line at all. I will not read the other books in the series. It reminded me of a mix between twilight and 50 Shades of Grey(without the whips).

I do think that the author is a good story teller though, and I would recommend it to my friends who were really into Twilight, 50 Shades, and the Sookie Stackhouse novels.
