5.0 out of 5 stars Full of plot twists and turns… (Amazon.com)
I’m not often a reader of vampire tales, but this one sucked me in (pun not intended). The story was good, the characters engaging, and the plot was full of twists and turns that kept me turning the pages.
Excellent job by Carlie of fleshing out the characters.
Remy’s character was never pathetic–although her situation entitled her to it. I admired her tenacity as her search dragged on.
Josh–and the coven he lives with? So well-written. They were the real entertainment in this book. The dynamics of the vampires were quite fascinating. And I loved how Carlie wrote their predatory nature. Simply indifferent to what they must do to humans to survive, yet their emotional response to each other were very strong.
A lot of well placed foreshadowing lent an air of impending conflict, pain, or change.
And (spoiler alert) the end is a zinger! But, it’s set up nicely for the sequel.
Hope you’re working on that, Carlie! 🙂
