A cool concept, actually. Though only for people who can read vamp fan fiction with straight faces. Q: The night is full of mystery.
Even when the moon is brightest, secrets hide everywhere. Then the sun rises and its rays cast so many shadows that the day creates more illusion than all the veiled truth of the night. Q: His face could have been modeled after the portrait on a Roman coin. Hair the color of raven feathers contrasted with his fair skin, and when he turned a bit she saw that a few strands had fallen across his eyes, shading them.
How else would the main protagonist look like? Q: "You live to make trouble, don't you? Jan 10, Brittany rated it did not like it. I didn't like Amelia Atwater Rhode's writing, though a lot of people would disagree with me. I could tell through her words that she was a young girl, though many people praise her for her literary skill.
That's not to say I didn't enjoy her writing or her story one little bit, I did, I just thought it could've been a lot better from all the hype I had heard. I didn't like the main character, Jessica, at all. I found her stereotypical View all 6 comments. Apr 13, Kim rated it it was ok. This book was written when the author was only fifteen. I want to get that out in the open to begin with, and yes, I admit that it is indeed impressive to have a book published while one is still in one's teens.
There are certainly good aspects to the story, including some exciting fight scenes and a This book was written when the author was only fifteen. There are certainly good aspects to the story, including some exciting fight scenes and a sexy "hero," and I think that the vampire and witch societies Atwater-Rhodes has created show a lot of promise.
The two biggest problems are a heroine who isn't particularly appealing, and the author's tendency towards over-exposition. In my creative writing courses, we constantly had the phrase "show me, don't tell me" drummed into our brains. This is clearly a lesson Atwater-Rhodes never learned.
She at least avoids the pitfalls of having her characters explain things unnecessarily, but there are other ways to provide necessary details than stopping the narrative to do so.
This novel is only pages longwith more of the explanatory bits dramatized than narrated, it could be brought to pages, still a short novel, but more fleshed out. I do think Atwater-Rhodes has writerly promise; she simply has a few more lessons to learn.
Katie, what the hell did I just read? View 1 comment. Mar 30, Lacee Pilgrim rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Vampire lovers. Aubrey is supposed to be hunting Jessica. Instead, he finds himself fascinated by her unexplainable knowledge and obvious ignorance about the world she writes about without a missing a single detail. But when the attacks start on her life, both Jessica and Aubrey are forced to make some tough decisions — and along the way discover a few new things about both themselves and the past.
Judgement: I owe a lot of credit to this book; I first read it when I was thirteen, when I was only beginning to discover my book-worm-ish nature, and have since read it several more times. There are a few poems in the book that were fun and interesting to read and attempt to comprehend, which makes me smile. The story is a mystery, the puzzle coming together piece by piece as the story progresses, so your mind is continuously flitting around the information to try and figure it out before the author wants you to which is at the end.
The characters have very strong personalities, and there is a bit of development and change by the end. Sep 15, Caroline rated it it was amazing Shelves: book-club. The main charaters are Jessica and Adurey. Jessica is strange but a very good write. Adurey is a high classed vampire who has been tracking Jessica for some time. Only when he finaly meets her deos things change. Adurey has to find away to save Jessica from the trouble her books got her into.
If you like vamipers, whitches, and fights this is the book for you to read! You will not want to put the book down when you frist start to read! Mar 01, Josie rated it did not like it Shelves: young-adult , horror-supernatural , vampires-werewolves. The writing and execution of this book was terrible. Characterization once again pretty non-existent, plot very ho-hum.
Also felt like 'Jessica' was really 'Amelia Atwater-Rhodes', who then tried to make her come across as strong, beautiful and aloof, when in fact I found her incredibly rude and stupid. And of course Jessica is the only human Aubrey the thousand year old, cruel vampire randomly falls for. Basically this is Atwater's year-old fantasy.
Nov 10, Jennifer rated it did not like it Shelves: terrible-with-raisins , reads , teen-young-adult-whathaveyou. As the dust-jacket constantly reminds us, Atwater-Rhodes wrote this "gem" at the age of fifteen. I wrote bad fanfic at the age of fifteen, too, but at least I had the courtesy not to inflict it on other people. Frankly, the only thing that surprises me about the work is that the author isn't male, as it's got a very distinct year-old-boy-in-the-backseat bouquet: no rhythm, no poetry, and no payoff.
Girls, stay home and wash your hair instead. Jun 27, David rated it did not like it Shelves: books , yabc , youngadult. Random House I am disappointed in everyone from the author to the publisher.
If somehow you read this review and are considering reading it, please don't read this book. There's nothing about it that merits the time or effort. View 2 comments. I saw this title on the shelf and just had to have this book. You see, Poe's poem "Alone" is one of my all-time favorites, probably second only to Baudelaire's "Les Chats.
And it didn't. But I have a hard time blaming Miss Atwater-Rhodes for this. You see, when this book came out, the author was a year-old girl.
