I have just finished the book and must say I am mildly disappointed in it. The two main characters Zin and Nicole aka raven. As I read it I felt it was a cheap knock off the Twilight series. You have an immortal group with one person who can turn people into immortals on their deathbed. Unfortunately the ending sucks. Though some people in the story do die, I found that it was as not as emotionally moving to me like other books I have read. The school days really had no relevance and at times I really hated the plot, because it was I hate him, no wait I love him, and then no wait I hate him, and so on throughout the book. One of my main problems with this book, was the relevance of certain facts, and how they were so brief, if you blinked you would miss it. Especially the last chapter, it was like two pages that tried to sum up everything but not only left gaps, but ended on such sharp note i felt like I was jolted out of the story. So though my critique may seem harsh if you have read the Twilight series then you understand, if you haven't read twilight I recommend reading that instead of this but its your choice not mine.

    Not Bad!!

    Picked this book up at random. Thought that the downtown club/breakdancing scene was unique. The plot is so, so. It does keep you interested but it's not the best book I've read. I thought it was too short and a lot of what happens is rushed.

    a quick, fun, easy read

    for me it was ok. teens between 10-14 will really like this book. older readers, well it depends. there are some similarities between this book and twilight. like they are immortals BUT NOT VAMPIRES!!!, there is a whole group of them kinda like a family, and raven is saved from death by zin. raven is not in any way almost killed by a van!!! so other than those things this book has no similarities with twilight. which is refreshing. the story is original for the most part. although some things could have been done better like describing the heng te, but all in all this is a quick and easy read. this is good for a rainy day or if you're just bored.

    The story turned out to be more about Nicole's drug-addict brother and the depression it was causing her and her family, than anything supernatural.
