I just couldn't relate with the bisexuall thing because i am strait.the whole time i was ruting for he guy.i get that she learns to be herself but... i just could not imagene feeling that way for the oppasit sex. When i say this i DO NOT mean to sound homophobic,or jugementle. Its just when i read i imagne i am the main haracter, and get lost in the book,and with his book i could not do that. But overall it was a well written book.

    Wow

    I got this book thinking it was going to be great. I was disappointed to find that it was super similar to the House of Night books which were previously written. I still pushed to give it a try, but I found the writing stylr to be more immature and just plain lost interest. Maybe others will enjoy it, but I did not

    Ok

    I like strong female charaters and vampire books but i didnt like that the author adds a bisexual aspect to the main charater. I could not finish reading it as that life style choice isnt one i follow.
