** spoiler alert ** I usually feel bad giving terrible reviews, because I realise a lot of effort goes into writing the book, and a lot of the time it's just not my kind of book. This, however, should have been my kind of book and I still thought it was terrible. There's a lot of competition on the market right now with regards to YA vampire novels, and I have enjoyed a lot of what's out there. This book had a very clever base idea, and certainly had potential. It turned out to be a disaster, though.

The characters are all bland, with no sign of character development anywhere in the book. Lenah is a five hundred year old vampire who somehow becomes human again through some vague ritual which involved her soulmate killing himself. She becomes human, is enrolled into a private school, and has seemingly no problem adjusting to her new life. She's supposed to be five hundred years old, yet she still thinks like a sixteen year old. She wasn't human five minutes when she was complaining about it, and how she should have 'thought it through' more. Even though, clearly, she had five hundred years to decide if this was what she really wanted.

Two guys instantly fall for her, for no apparent reason. One boy is a sweet, kind and artistic, while the other is self-obsessed and the signature popular kid in the school. So of course Lenah goes and 'falls in love' with the popular kid, despite the fact that they've never had an actual conversation.

Nothing really happens. Lenah tells Justin she was a vampire, and on the next page tells us she can't tell Tony because she has to keep 'silent' and can't tell 'anyone.' Lenah gets made a vampire again and for more vague, unexplained reasons gets to keep all her human characteristics. There's no concrete plot, no strong character, and no evident structure. Definitely a massive let down.
