it’s time for a book review!
I both loved & hated this book.
The characters are incredibly one dimensional, very flat, and for the most part, you can’t like any of them. I loved the premise – the main character, Meena, is psychic & knows when people are going to die, and she ends up meeting up with the Prince of Darkness. I loved the little bits tying in history & real places. I did like the pop culture references, though I wish there weren’t quite so many of them. There is some attempts at humor throughout the book, though the jokes were mainly as flat as the characters.
All of that being said, I couldn’t put the book down & read the book pretty quickly, lugging my library hardcover copy back & forth to work every day just so I could read a few minutes every day at lunch time. I wish I had realized that there is an intended sequel, because the book was very much written like it was setting you up for a sequel but that drove me nuts at the time because I didn’t know that. I felt like there were all these open storylines. And the book leaves you with a cliffhanger which made me so mad I threw the book across the room (sorry, library).
Will I read the sequel? yes, probably. I’m addicted to vampire books of all kinds, even the badly written ones. Will I be impatiently waiting for it to come out? Probably not. Will I pay money for the sequel? No, probably not, I’ll wait for a library copy. But I will recommend this book to other vampire lovers, especially other modern-day vampire lovers.
