    Great Read!

    Maggie Shayne's Twilight Fulfilled (Children of Twilight) is an incredible story! This was my first book from Maggie Shayne and after finishing the book I couldn't help but want more. I loved the idea of there being the Chosen those who vampires are sworn to protect. I found it extremely interesting that there was a gothic, scientific element to Shayne's story. The characters within Twilight Fulfilled are interesting to say the least. The main character Brigit Poe is a smart, strong and sexy female leading lady. The chemistry between her and Utana is undeniably irresistible.

    Shayne's story is unique, fast paced and easily draws you in from the start to finish. Although I have not read all of the previous books in this series I am eager to go back and start the series from the beginning. I would highly recommend reading the previous books because a lot of history is touched on and current/past relationships are mention but I also think Twilight Fulfilled is a fantastic book on its own. Shayne does a fantastic job re-introducing previous characters as well as new.

    Maggie Shayne did a wonderful job with her villain character Nash Gravenham-Bail. He was just so easy to hate. I despised him because he was always one foot a head of the game. I couldn't help but want Utana to just tear him to shreds. I found it extremely engaging and realistic to the story that Brigit struggled with her family about her relationship with Utana. With so much previous history it would've been silly if there was no struggle.

    Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed Maggie Shayne's Twilight Fulfilled. I would highly recommend this book to vampire series lovers everywhere! This is a wonderful and exciting end to a FANTASTIC series!

    GraveTells review: a hip paranormal romance in a much beloved series

    TLDR recap: Utana, father of the vampire race, and an immortal who has been trapped inside the ashes of his body for thousands of years, is on a crusade to purge his sin against the gods by obliterating the origination of that sin... his vampire children, all of them. Brigit Poe, one of the prophecied Twins, the "evil" twin who has been trained to fight and kill with her laser-eyebeams-o-death, has been given a terrible task: kill Utana before he kills all of them. This second offering in the Children of Twilight series by Maggie Shayne starts off slow, but really takes off about halfway through, before barrelling non-stop toward a heart-breaking, explosive conclusion. A GraveTells recommended read! Thoughts: Brigit is modern, spunky, irreverent, tender, and intelligent, and she doesn't need a man to save her... usually. Utana is old-fashioned (duh, thousands of years old!), has been a king, a priest, and (considered to some) a god, can shoot crazy lasers of destruction from his own eyes, and is working some major mojo in that big sculpted (and apparently revivable) body of his. Needless to say, he doesn't think he needs a woman to save him either, but he hasn't met Brigit yet. Over the last few years, Harlequin has really been busting out of its staid, rusty old ravishing-innocents-and-bodice-rippers stereotype, and Twilight Fulfilled is an engaging contemporary, hip paranormal romance in a much beloved series. This story is told in third-person, but the characterization of the voices is so well done, it reads like first-person. It starts off as a composite cast story, with several storylines weaving in and out; that's probably what made the first half of the book feel slow for me, and the main reason for the 4.0 rating (would have otherwise been higher). We should take into account that I read Twilight Fulfilled without first reading Twilight Prophecy (the first book in the Children of Twilight series) or any of the numerous Wings in the Night books, so my observations are from the point of a true newbie to this universe. That will be helpful for readers who, like me, are starting fresh with this one, and probably annoying to readers who are long-time fans of Maggie Shayne's vampires. Something else that was both a positive and a negative for me was Utana's obvious initial trouble with the English language. His stumbling pronunciations and word misuse made for a few fun comedic moments (which, IMO, could have been played on a little more heavily), but also made it difficult for me to identify with him as a character. Ms. Shayne does a great job, though, of progressing his language skills at a believable pace; he may be highly intelligent, but he's no virtuoso and I like that - it makes him more real and he needs it. I mean, seriously, this dude is the original Noah, the father of the vampire race, an ancient Sumerian king and priest, and can wipe out entire blocks with his mega Cyclops gaze... he definitely isn't your average easily-relatable hero-next-door type!

    Epic!

    First things first. This is the first book I have ever read by Maggie Shayne, and I loved it!! I now want to go back and read the whole series! Second, I am very glad that my humanities class I took last year forced me to read Gilgamesh. Knowing the information I did, I felt like I knew the whole background on the type of world that Utana had "died" in. If the only world I had known had drastically changed I would be a little on the crazy side as well. But although his complete existence has been changed, he does listen to reason. Kinda. But I loved how this book seemed to pick up from the last book. I didn't read the previous, but it seemed like it was a continuation. You are introduced to Utana as he is destroying those around him. Then you encounter Bridgit, the "bad twin" whose sole mission is to destroy Utana before he kills the rest of the vampire race. But how can she kill someone she is drawn to so passionately??? I really did like this book. I liked the writing style, characters, and the fact that I was able to read this without knowing any previous knowledge of the series.

    worth the wait

    Friday, July 22, 2011Review: Twilight Fulfilled by Maggie Shayne 4 STARS I really enjoy Maggie Shayne series twilight. I think I have read all of them. The last two are of Children of Twilight. The only child to be born of vampire was Amber lee and she had twins J.W. (James) and Brigit. Who were born with special powers. J.w. right after birth healed Brigit who was born not breathing. Brigit has power to destroy shoots a lazer from her eyes. She is known as the bad twin. James had raised up from ashes the imortale Utana who was trapped for 5000 years, thinking he was the one to save the vampires from being wiped out. Utana actually thought he was supposed to kill all of his children the vampire because he was not supposed to share his power. Utana stole James power to heal. He also killed many vampires. At same time it was made known about the vampire race and a lot of vampires houses and some humans were burned and died. Brigit knew that her power was the only one that could stop Utana and she battled him till they both could not fight any more that night. Utana was wounded but stole her power. Brigit was drawn to know more about Utana and was attracted to him. Nashmum was head of the goverment agency that has been for years killing and torchering the vampires and expermenting on them which is how Amber Lee was born. He was tricking Utana and wanted to help him kill all the vampires and the chosen people his agency had rounded up to trap the vampires. The only problem that I had with the story is Utana was supposed to be the flood survior who took his family and animals on a boat. I was a little touchy about that.Decided to not think he was Noah just someone made up from that time frame. I enjoyed the story and wonder if Maggie has finshed this series or where would it take them next book. I was given the ebook in exchange of honest review. Its release sept. 29, 2011 from Mira Books

    Amazing finale to an amazing series!!!!

    I started reading this book with a heavy heart. Knowing that it was to be the last in the series, I tried my best to pace myself and make it last as long as possible. The idea of having to say goodbye to characters I have known half my life was a little depressing. That said, I still couldn't put the book down and I found myself at the climactic ending far too soon. Brigit and J.W. (like their father Jameson) grew up before our eyes and their story, their destiny, was so fitting. I love all the books in this series and truly hope that this will not be the end.
