Excellent! Sure, there were some parts that revealed a bit of stupidity in the characters' actions, but overall the plot made up for it. Loved the twist at the ending and can't wait to read the next book!

cant get into it at all

It started off as an interesting storyline and Dawn seemed like a neat character. But, about half-way through the book (maybe even sooner), it got really cheesy and the story became so lame. I won't give away any spoilers, but the ending had me laughing at the stupidity of all the main characters.

This sounds really good and I can't wait for it to come out!

An excellent fantasy book dealing with vampires and a complicated relationship. The author portrays the main character, Dawn as a strong figure in a dangerous feud between tyrannical vampires and angered humans.
