I picked this book up back when it was released and somehow it never left the TBR section of my bookshelf. I pulled it out so I could read it for my October reading and I am glad that I did. This book is a different rendition of vampires and I am a sucker for vampire stories ( no pun intended).
I honestly cant think of another vampire book that I have read to date that describes how the vampires fly/transform to fly. This for me was a very nice additive ...more

I know the cover looks like more of a glamor shop and therefore the contents is probably all whack.There I go again with judging the cover. Vamps is nothing like that sure there's still high end New York fashion and high maintenance princess type characters, shallow big egos and selfish.
Lilith, Jules, Carmen, Sergei, Tanith, Melinda, and Oliver are among those vampire family they call ...more

i did not care for this book. that said, it's popular with my teens here at the library and i think it's important to read what they are reading.
i appreciated the vast vampire culture that collins created- lots of history and background, special lingo ...more

i dont know if i'll be reading the next book in this series unless i dont have anything better at the time.
though saying that i suggest you should ...more

But she hasn't fallen far. The first was meant for brooding goth boys. This series is for not so brooding girls and possibly boys.
I was all set not the like the book. All the designer name dropping is expected in chick lit but I was beginning to think that everyone in the book was going to be some sort of monster. ...more
