Buffy fans have to read this! Loved it!

My daughter recommended this book to me. She kept on me, week after week, asking if I had read it, or if I had even started it, and I would just put it off. I had finished reading the Vampire Academy series and thought that this looked like it would be to similar and wouldn't stand out for me after devouring the VA books.
I was wrong (shakes head). This book was great. From the beginning of the first chapter, Crusade grabs your attention. It played with your senses, of needing to hide to live, of needing to be quiet to not be found. Holder and Viguie paint a believable dark time and place. Their attention to detail leaves the reader wanting . . .wanting to know what is going to happen, are Jenn and Antonio ever going to be together, will Jenn ever be safe and who can she trust? Their descriptions of the fight scenes are perfectly done, enveloping you deeper into the world of the Salamanca. The introductions with the other characters in the book were done really well, developed as the book progressed.
Another one for fans of the vampire, supernatural genre. You get alittle bit of wolf, a little bit of vamp, and everything else in between. Buffy & Angel enthusiasts will love this book. I mean, hellooooo! A girl who can kick butt - check, a moody, weight of the world on his shoulder attitude vampire - check.
Betrayal + romance + action = must read! I was pleasantly surprised.

    This is by far one of the worst books I've ever read. The vampir

    This is by far one of the worst books I've ever read.
    The vampire/forbidden love romance thing is one thing.
    But the bad writing is what put me off.  It changed from first person to third person pretty constantly. I would gauge it at about every three sentences or so. I simply could not continue reading it. I tried up to chapter three, thinking it would get better. I mean, these ladies wrote Wicked, which is really good! Along with Buffy books. This, however, is not good. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.
    I'm just glad that I checked it out of the library and I didn't waste money on it.

    Lame!!!!

    This book was such a disappointment. It was boring and a complete waste of money. I read all the time and was surprised that this book was written by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie. Give me a break and come up with original plots or stop writing at all. This book destroyed your reputation and I will have to think twice before I purchase books written from these authors again. Very sloppy work girls!!! It does not even deserve a rating.

    I was annoyed

    I made it to chapter 12 before putting this book down. I'll admit that I had extremely high hopes because the story seemed unique and different. However, at the half-way point I wasn't connected to any of the characters. None of them seemed real yet. Maybe it was because of the constant set up of the world and the story. There was also A LOT of explaining. A lot of it just seemed forced. I wanted to like it, but I just couldn't really get with it.
