Okay....so i am going to write down my opinion and i have some pros and cons as well.....
i am swooning . like actually SWOONING with the whole damn word in capital. This is a good book .....nowadays surprisingly i am getting to read many books which i like .Whatever...the book has an original plot. i mean i have NOT read about any device which injects holy water into the vampire's body if there is a rise in the body temperature ....until this book. well ms. white.....nice imagination and creation. the female protagonist is:-
3)has sheballs (she has guts)(there is a difference between stupidity and braveness.....jumping in a mucky shallow quicksand swirl to save your girl???that is brave.....nose diving into a shallow pond because of some bet you make is STUPID)
eveie is not the stereotype that other author make the females in these kinds of books .....airhead. stupid (wandering-into-dark-alleys-alone kind of stupid)
I thoroughly enjoyed the relationship between Evie and Lend. Not only did they have some witty and fun banter. There’s also that rare feeling that I have when I read novels, that these two could actually make it. I’m serious in that I could actually see these two getting married and the whole happily ever after too. They really make a lovely couple.
Unlike some people…
Anita and Jean Claude know how to have a good time together… no really!
The plot and pacing move nicely throughout the story and whilst it was easy to guess who the bad guy was and what the eventual outcome would be, it didn’t annoy me like it has in other novels. Can I help it if I’m, like, practically a genius or something?
No, no I can’t!
So over all this novel was a breath of fresh air. I completely enjoyed it and I absolutely can’t wait to read the sequel! I highly recommend it to most people, except for anyone named Bob and I think that out of most of the other YA paranormal lit out there, this one is definitely the best.
The only part that bothered me was the bleeping : 'bleep ' . that was kind of stupid ...maybe? and yeah....yeah....the name of the male protagonist bothered me to no end ......come on .....LEND???? as in hey baby lend me your body!!! that is immature ....to the eyes of a sixteen year old (me).
i personally do not approve of the use of the word LOVE in the first damn book ....i mean you do not know the guy enough to love him in the first book. this was no different. Evie is lonely and when a PRISONER who is about the same age comes in ...she goes to him and spends time with him.....that is quite unreal and unusual behavior.
i mean any random guy who has VIOLATED the laws of the place that practically raised her is supposed to generate some kind of repulsive feeling.But it is totally the opposite here,even if you are working out in a gym and a random unknown guy comes up to you and tries to talk to you a normal person would give him a 'who are you ?? weirdo' kind of look. but if a guy who works out there regularly and you have seen him there comes up to you to start a conversation , you would smile and be polite. that is normal human behavior.
here, lend is a total random guy and there is no way evie can get so comfy with him.there should have been more building of the relationship ...like the kate daniel series by ilona andrews..... kate and curran do not have a relationship until the third book.....three books of anticipation....and anticipation is GOOD...then suddenly BAM!!!!! that is how a book should go.evie also runs off with lend ....IN THE FIRST BOOK!!!! heights of unreal....she ditches her HOME and goes away with lend??? in the first book??? do i need to say how unrealistic that is ???
on the whole? i liked the book not LOVED it it takes me some time to LOVE a book....three books later ...lets see if it manages to make me fall for it....
suggestion to everybody : "books are like guys.....you cannot fall in love with them at he first sight or reading the first book of the series..... and as i said ANTICIPATION IS GOOD" no pun intended
