Surprised I haven't seen any discussion on this series (or maybe I just overlooked it).

This series is my new guilty pleasure. The first book did bother me a bit for the first half (the heroine was such a pushover), but I love how it's picking up.

These books are not your usual YA vampire series. It's a bit grittier, and I love how the vampires run the town and make the humans fall under their rule. I also like the house dynamics between the two couples.

Anyone else reading this series?

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I like this series because it's a different take on the normal vamps that you see a lot of in YA PNR.

However, the first half of the first book I wanted to throw the book at the wall. The heroine is constantly getting tormented and beat up at her new college (she's 16 - or about to turn 16?, can't remember - and is there on early admittance). As I kept reading, I realized that the author made the character so spineless and unaware in order to show over the course of the series how strong she will become.

Book 1 has the character leave the dorms in which she's being harrassed at and move into a vampire protected house with a ghost, a wanna be goth girl (she dresses like this to mock the vampires) and a cute 18 year old that likes her back but considers her jailbait.

By the end of the book, she has vampires out to get her. Book 2 picks up from there and gets even better.

I'm really liking the series so far. It's very interesting to imagine what it would be to live in a town where the vampires completely control and run the town like a mafia.

im glad you like it!


Jean Valjean (OG 2010) (courfeyrack) I really need to get around to reading this. I read the first book, and I unfortunately wasn't too impressed. =[


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Claire in book 1 really isn't very likeable. If she was the only thing that bothered you, I'd consider giving it another shot, since the series gets better with each book. If it was something else, well...eh. Not sure then. We all have different tastes, and I wouldn't worry about it. :)


Jean Valjean (OG 2010) (courfeyrack) I didn't really feel as much of a bond with the characters in the first book. The only problem is, I have this thing about series.. once I read the first book, I HAVE to read all of them. It's a really weird thing about me. I know that I'll be pleasantly surprised, I mean this series wouldn't have as much of a following as it does if the series wasn't good. I just need to get around to it. I've started wayyyyy too many books recently. Lol.

If I remember right, book five hadn't come out & I just never thought to start back up until it had been so long that I didn't remember books one - four enough to not have to re-read them.

I notice really weird things in movies and books.

You probably can't see on this book cover, but the chick has her hand stuck in her pants. I stared at the cover for 10 minutes wondering why.
