Read full description of the books:
Fasten your seatbelts ‘cause I’m going to give this book the review it deserves. Probably a shady one. I don’t know what to say first, I usually start by saying the good aspects of a book but in this one there is none. Sorry fans.
The protagonist is Alisa a 5.000 year old vampire who is extremely beautiful and unique, which is something she constantly reminds the reader. We get it sunshine you are a special snowflake in a world full of flames. WE GET IT.
She is the most annoying and arrogant character I’ve ever read in a YA novel at least. She is also cocky, but oh God, look I can like a cocky character, honestly, like Damon Salvatore, but why am I even comparing those two? There is absolutely no level of comparison.
There is a grey line between confident and arrogant and Alisa here crosses that line waaay toο many times. Anyway, my strong dislike for her grew even from the first two chapters. See she never forgets to tell (if not brag) about her abilities, once or twice could be okay but I lost count. Either dedicate a chapter telling what her nature is or lose it. What am I even saying? She is a vampire who can’t compel others, who can easily walk in sunlight but are you ready people? SHE CAN HOLD HER BREATH FOR AN HOUR.
The YA novels are doomed because they are all similar to one another. Not just the writing or the plot or the same characters that are reproduced all the time but even by the font of the book you guys! They all have this specific font and cover and even clichés. Gladly I mentioned clichés ‘cause I have to pin- point a few.
When the nerd guy is revealed to have AIDS this is what our sassy and badass female protagonist has to say: “How did you catch it? You don’t seem gay.” Yes, only gays have AIDS, look I get that it’s not recently written but what the fuck?
Another time Ray wants to call the police and blah blah so she thinks “I hesitate. It is not easy for me to lie to those I love.” Love? LOVE??? HOW CAN IN YOUNG ADULT BOOKS PEOPLE LOVE A PERSON WHOΜ THE BARELY EVEN KNOW? THEY HAVE KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR TWO DAYS AND SHE LOVES HIM ALREADY!
Then Alisa tells Ray she killed his father so probably he will get mad, he might want to seek for revenge he might even want to kill her right? NO! NO! NO! She said and I quote “I killed him without mercy. I have killed thousands over the last five thousand years. I am a monster” So Ray should be in shock and I don’t know scream? GET FRUSTRATED maybe? Helll to the fucking no!
“But you would not do anything to hurt me. You want me to leave you now because you do not want me to get hurt. You love me, I love you.” Yes people this is an actual representation of how a sane person would react to hearing his father’s killer. Yes seems legit.
Then the super dooper original vampire shows up and he says “I have watched you particularly close the last three days. You love this boy. You would not want to see him die” And later “you love him. You love him more than your own life”. I’m done, honestly, I can’t see why people liked it or even praised it.
I had to stop so many times to stare at the wall and question myself “why do people like this?”
I realize that this is a YA book but oh boy give those youths a chance. I know than this is not Dostoevsky’s level literature but GOD try a little harder. How do you expect a teenager to love to read if this is the material he has to work with before he moves on to classics and stuff?
Anyway, I think I’ve said way too much, but as you probably can tell I disliked the book from the first page to the last. Now that I think about it the only good chapter was the third one, but other than that there’s nothing else.
