Finally, finally got around to it and found while the writing was good to okay, the characters were well, the same way. Either okay or good I guess? I like the cover.
Near the ending there it was kind of cute. Though I was reminded of the Ghost and the Goth books for some reason. Basically, an okay to good quick read and will try ...more
I just can't get through this book. I think if I was still a teenager I could get through but I can't. I used to be obsessed with Amelia's books but as I've gotten older, I've realized how basic they are and it's pretty disappointing when there's authors like Rowling and Maas who write amazing young adult novels at an adult level.
The concept here is something of a switch for Atwater-Rhodes' Den of Shadows books, in that it doesn't focus on that predator-prey dynamic between a human and a vampire, or the vampires and the ...more

Honestly, I don't know if I just outgrew AAR or if this book is so much worse than her other books but it was a pain to finish. There is not one character in it that's actually likable or that you find any reason to ...more

This is a quick read, not quite reaching 200 pages. It's something I would have sat down to start and finish on a Saturday afternoon as a teenager. As an adult with stuff getting in the way I had to put it down a few times.
Idk why but I guess it’s just something about the writing maybe I always enjoy these books when I read them
And I just realized that she has another series out starting with Bloodwitch that is supposed to include my favorite Jaguar so ...more
Very few YA Fantasy books are able to break the mold and become something more than just a YA Fantasy book. Token of Darkness is no exception. Generally, it is fairly conventional in terms of plot and pacing, but it did do several things I appreciated, things that
I remember first coming across Amelia’s books in my high school library. I wasn’t as big a reader back then as I am now, but I remember reading every one of her books I could find. I really enjoyed her Den of Shadows series and I even think I read a few of the books from the Kiesha’ra series as well. I don’t recall much from the books but Amelia’s name stayed with me as I started to become a more avid reader. So I was pretty confident I would enjoy Token of Darkness despite ...more
