Read from October 16 to 18, 2012

I made it 32% through this before I realized that no matter how much I wanted to like, it just wasn't going to happen. I really liked Drake's Nightwalker series, and love the premise of this one, but instead of reading a seasoned author (that I enjoyed) I felt like I was reading something I could have put out; which is to say it wasn't any good. Not a single moment had me living in the story, and I ended up just forwarding to the end to see if the guy lived or not. I still didn't care when I saw either. I didn't even know our protag was male until I think 4% into it. I thought it was a lesbian character (which would have been awesome!) but no. Instead we get the boy that reads like a girl. Why she chose to write from the male's perspective is beyond me, especially when she has a successful series under her belt with a female POV. Just lame.

Unfortunately I won't be recommending this to any of my friends.

Valerie Not to mention that there is no physical description of the main character... unless I missed it! Not finished reading the book yet, but I also didn't realize the main character was male for the first bit either... lol
