Not Another Vampire Story

Faced with the daunting prospect of yet another high school, seventeen-year-old Emily Johnston is fully prepared to cope as she always does-by keeping a low profile. She, however, quickly finds herself surrounded by a group of friendly students, and strangely drawn to Link, the new mysterious stranger in town.

S.L. Baum quickly draws us into the intriguing life of Emily and her family. Why do they keep moving every few years? The story unfolds at a pace that allows the characters to be fully developed. The intense relationship between Emily and Link unfolds to divulge ... I won't tell! S.L. Baum's style is elegant and easy to follow. I enjoyed reading this book, as did my ten-year-old daughter. We are looking forward to the sequel!

Boy does this book start slow... and progress slowly. The narrator keeps giving hints that something is unique about the main character-- oh you guessed it! She's immortal (already picked that up from the cover). You don't get the full story until about 2/3 the way in. But leading up to it nearly NOTHING happens. By the time the climax happens, it's predictable but does give the book some redeeming qualities. Charity is annoying, at best. She falls too quickly in love and acts way younger than she is. Also, sometimes it seems like a bunch of supernatural characters are tossed in just because they're "hot" in literature right now. The end is left open for a sequel, but I doubt I'll read it just because I can't imagine the story line can get much more trite.

    Free

    This book is free on Kobo, although it has a different cover, so if you are unsure about buying the whole series you can get it through Kobo and see if you like it. I am actually friends with the author's daughter and think they are really great :-).

    Good Read

    This is a good book for reading over the week-end. It's entertaining, although I found myself thinking it was another 'not really a teen-ager, but stuck in high school again' theme. It is a good stand alone book. I have no desire to go any farther with the series, though.

    All right, this was cute, fun, fast and a nice change of pace from immortal teen looking person in angst and whining all the time to some crazy characters, big secrets and happy ending. That whole happy ending thing, that always makes me smile! Thinking the rest of the series is going to be worth reading if they are as easy and fun as this first one was.
