“What do you want from me?” I demanded.

Dean examined my eyes and looked disapointed in what he saw. “Do you remember anything?” He asked with hope.

“What are you talking about? I was with Shane, then I woke up here! He’ll kill you for this!” I warned.

Dean threw back his head and laughed. “That little mosquito can try.

After the heartbreak of book one I have been eagerly awaiting the release of Unattainable. The story started out much slower than I had anticipated, and it continued through much of the story. This second installment was much different from the first in that with the separation of Dean and Miranda we alternate chapters, and follow the two of them separately. It is a book long heartache to watch Miranda with her unknown past, and the slow by progressive deterioration of Dean knowing that he must ...more

Well well well what a ride. Two boys fighting over one girl and she betrays them both and even kills one of them. The ending was a cliff hanger and will have to go on with this series to find out what happens next.

Again she introduced new characters, vampires and slayers alike and it left me wanting. You know how at the end of a movie the characters come to this life changing moment and they move forward for the better. This wasn't it. Lina has killed two people and she should be dead.... but dean cant bring himself to do it. He goes the whole book trying to make her remember him, and she is jerking him around the whole time. talk about kicking a dog when he's down.... I feel sorry for the characters but ...more

Great Book! Loved it just as much as the first one. Have put this and Captivated on my favorites shelf. Sometimes, I feel like writers follow the path of least resistance and their stories are somewhat predictable in the end. Not so much that it ruined their story, but in a way that when you finished reading it, you realize that you thought or had hoped it was going to end that way and you were just fortunate enough to enjoy a few bumps in the road. That is not the case with this series. As I wa ...more

I was so excited to read this book, that once I started I refused to put it down until it was finished. I love how in this book you get to explore Markus' character more. The progression of the story was really good, but I was a little disappointed in the fact that you are never quite certain if Mindy has powers or not. You are certain of one but Shane takes credit for it. You are left wondering if she can actually control a slayer or not or if it is just Dean's love for her that makes him do th ...more

I enjoyed this book. As others have mentioned it is a bit short. The plot does stagnate at a few points, but the action makes up for it. My biggest complaint (aside from the length) is the numerous spelling errors. Nothing annoys me more than someone using you're instead of your. You're was used incorrectly at least twice. That aside I can't wait to find out what happens to everyone. (view spoiler) ...more

This is story is not what I expected. I did enjoy this one as much as the first, I love Markus (Doctor Watson of the Alliction Series world :) ) and Dean. Definitely not Twilight, true fans would know the difference, would say it is more of Vampire Diaries meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Can't wait for Alliction # 3 to see if Mindy and Dean can find their happy ending , and is there hope for Markus and Violet?

May give a spoiler.......

this book was frigin awesome, even better than the first. i felt so sorry for deam. its like his life was in turmoil all the time. poor lina she was so sweet and lost most of the time, and shane finally surprised me.

In my opinion if the author would have elabeated about what happeed when she went missing, like at school or how her mother and friends felt when it happened, the story would have been even better

Omg Deb Apodaca has done it again with the flip flop. Just when things get in Deans reach something else happens. In the second book of this series you can feel the pain and the longing Dean has for Mindy and it's heart wrenching. You feel every emotion felt by every character. It's powerful, it's intense, and emotion all wrapped up in one book that just explodes. Excellent book!!! Just excellent. I loved it and I will continue to follow Deb Apodaca's writing always.

Book 2 of the Affliction series, and totally worth the time. As I said about book 1, this is a new spin on vampires and slayers. It's not the same song and dance that other books are coming out as. Different points of view throughout the whole story. Makes you wonder who is the good guy and who is the bad guy. The last few pages of this book made me jump up off the couch and read them standing up. I need book 3!!!

This one isn't as cliche as the first in the series.. I greatly enjoyed it but almost quit reading it because of all the errors. Misspelled words, even wrong words... it annoys me.

Dean can't believe Mindy is what he hates most... and with no memory of her life, he means nothing to her. He's just another target, until they're both on deaths door - and the unthinkable happens ...

This was a good read. Although I flung myself mad at Mindy this time around. I did love the new characters and what they brought to the story. The turn of events made me teary-eyed and left my jaw on the floor. I did find it a tad slow, but I still can't wait on the next book to see what happens to Dean and the other characters.

So much emotions, sadness, fury and lots of fucked up ass shit. I feel so bad for Dean. And I wish I have a loyal friend like Markus. This book has left me sad esp after reading few books that made me feel happy. My heart goes out for Dean, so so sad

It's good, but it's a total set up for the third book. We gain a few characters and kind of loose a few characters. I guess I was looking for a little more drama with Dean and Lina. I can not tell anything from Shane

I greatly enjoyed this excellent Part 2, just as I was equally captivated by the first novel. She is an extremely talented writer. The tension is awesome, the romance is not overwhelming. I can't wait for her follow up novel!

I just loved this 2nd book. it sure sucked me into it just like the 1st book did. very good read. I was wondering if there is going to be a 3rd book out and when I should look for that one also.
your a wonderful Author.

The only thing i do not like about this book is that it was short and the way it ended, I waited months for this book to come out for it to just end so quickly..I can only hope there will be more to this series.

This book was even better than the first. I was pulling my hair out for most of the book! Twists and turns and ups and downs were amazing and I couldn't believe the ending!! I can't wait for the next book!

I love Dean and I can't help but feel for him. He's lost everyone he loves.

This book was pretty good, although it took me a while to get through it. I have lots of theories about what is going to happen, so I will read the next book when it comes out.
