it was amazing
bookshelves: 101-in-1001, 2012, fantasty, young-adult, vampires

I absolutely loved this book. This might be my favorite YA vampire book (and hopefully series) to date...heck, maybe even may favorite vampire book period.

First of all, I absolutely love, love, love Zoey. I don't care how much that makes me sound like a tween fan girl. Bella Swan she is not!

Second, really liked how authentic the characters felt. They felt like they were real teenagers not just dumbed down adults. I think this probably has a lot to do with the book being co-authored by an actual teenager, but I felt like they did an excellent job.

The third thing I really loved about this book was all the elements of paganism and ritual that was brought into the book. I felt like this gave the book an extra dimension that I haven't seen in other YA vampire books.

I finished this book and immediately left for the ilbrary to greab the next three. I'm really excited to dig into the series.
