A great addition to the vamprie genre

I really enjoyed this book. It did a great job of holding my attention and I loved the characters from the good guys to the bad guys. Can't wait to read the next book :)

Bland and Irritating

The first book in this new vampire series is a disappointing read. There's too much internal dialogue and debate and not enough action. The protagonist unconvincingly wavers between being too tough and too sensitive. She's simply not believable or sympathetic. The plot ...
The first book in this new vampire series is a disappointing read. There's too much internal dialogue and debate and not enough action. The protagonist unconvincingly wavers between being too tough and too sensitive. She's simply not believable or sympathetic. The plot is a thin, basic tale of a woman accidentally turned vampire. It does not hold reader attention and becomes downright irritating when the heroine flounders into an awkward/ill-defined relationship and flails about trying to locate her abducted partner. The plot's outcome and climax are also underwhelming and unsatisfying. I can't recommend this book.

    Get past the first few chapters and it's not bad.

    "...All in all, I know most of what I have said seems negative, but once the book got past the rape and the smut, it really started to pick up and I didn't want to put it down - I was very interested to know what was going to happen next, who was behind certain things, when she was going to realize who she could or couldn't trust - and I'm definitely going to pick up the next in the series! If the rest of them continue the way The Becoming left off, they should be full of action, which is what I expected from a series about a bounty hunter-turned-vampire."

    a bit slow

    I really didn't like this book. I thought it was slow and really didn't hold my attention. I thought it could have been better. I doubt im going to read the rest of the series.
