Someone please tell me I'm not the only one who was miserably disappointed with this novel!!! What happened to character growth??? I swear, after 300 pages, all I can remember from him at all is his referring to his lover as ¿my sweet one.¿ There was absolutely no drawn out description of his character, or really where he came from, who he was, how he felt¿ I think that¿s what really bothered me. All I got out of his character was his puppy-dog like names for his lover. The only real emotion we, the reader ever get from him is towards the end of the novel, when he bangs his fist against the wall as he thinks of his lover w/another man!!! And then the female lead ¿ what was wrong with her? She drops everything just to be with him, as a vampire? And that¿s it. Why did they even bring her family into the novel [phone calls to them] because its not like the audience ever really grows to know them at all, right?! Am I right??? Plus, the author made the female lead so simplistic and so ¿traditional¿ 1800s woman, that I seriously got angry just raeding what this girl was thinking half the time. And Battista¿s pet names for her really drove me wild too- like how he said she was like a child, crying one minute, happy the next? What¿s up with that?? What century are we in? I understand the vamp was pretty old and all that, but with the female lead just accepting the comments and back and forth, I just found it to be a really dated, really anti-feminist (if that makes sense) upsetting novel. Plus the character plots seem to have a similar vein or routine to them. Duncan sounds like every other vampire slayer she's ever included in her novels and I was just like what? but if you all want to disregard that, all in all, it was an ok book. but i gotta say i was so disappointed with this one. seriously.
