Ended very sad but was a great read! Read in two days, with interruptions. Engaging. Looking forward to reading more from this author and hope there's a sequel! Can't go wrong with this free book!

The depth of feelings that was portrayed with the main characters kept me guessing and I did not want to put the book down.

Not at all what I expected. Throughout the entire storyline, I did not know what was giing to happen next. It kept me guessing until the end. It was a bit somber, but more so somberly victorious? Overall, it wasn't the now trending vampire read of a sex depraved main character who falls for a mind readinng vampire. I liked it, and I would read other works from this author.

Alone is a nice suspenseful book. I recommend this book highly though I wasn't pleased with the ending. It is a worthwhile book overall and a must read!

Don't expect a happy ending; this isn't that kind of book -- However, this is an excellent portrayal of a broken, battered wife who kicks her way free. Her path is bumpy, she has setbacks, and ultimately she does not run but crawls into a new life. The power of this book is the emotional journey our "heroine" and her vampire "friend" take as they both find that they have lots to learn about themselves. I found several uniquely British terms used here, but my NookColor looked them up straight away and I was not taken out of the story for long! In case you're wondering, this is a full-length Novel of about 600 pages.

This book was a pleasure from the first few paragraphs. Less predictable than imagined with a unique vampire character type. You'll find likeable characters with flawless writing that doesn't attempt to wow (bore?) the reader with seldom used, ill-fitting words. Well done, thank you!

I read Anne Rice and her vampires of New Orleans and then Twilight and was so disappointed at the wishy washy characters of Twilight and then I read Alone and was not disappointed. The characters and plot had real depth and didn´t just cover the usual swooning girl in love with the handsome vampire scenario which seems to be more and more the case these days. This was much darker and the pace faster. I did have a favourite character though and it wasn´t the two main characters but the female vampire with real attitude and a penchant for handbags. A girl after my own heart. Just waiting for the sequel now.

The realism of the violence in this book was disturbing - in a good way! It made me want to jump into the book and beat the main characters husband! Although it is a urban fantasy/romance, there was much about it that was very real and I read the book within a couple of sittings. Great novel.
