    This book contains a lot of satanism so if you are not into that

    This book contains a lot of satanism so if you are not into that stuff do NOT read this book. I would have liked to know this information before I got the book because if i had known I would never have read it.

    okay

    I kept waiting to find out the big secret and when I finally did, it was a big let down. From there, it just got worse as the characters sunk deeper and deeper into a situation that seems hopeless. I have no desire to read the sequels.

    AMAZINGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!

    This book is like a movie. It keeps you on the edge of your seat. Once you read book 1 you have to read books 2 & 3. Its a great romance/thriller/action/religion and even part Sci-Fi. JUST AWESOME I LOVE IT!

    2 1/2 stars

    2 1/2 - 3 stars. While I liked this; it needs more work. I don't know how eBooks come about; however, if they are derived directly from the hard copy with no additional typing, copying, or pasting then the editing/proofreading staff needs to be fired. This book was littered with punctuation errors, missing words, phrases that shouldn't have been there, etc. It was awful, annoying, and distracting.

    Now to the actual writing. The author failed to make me really care about her characters and what they were going through. She told me everything without the details that would have the reader connect with the characters, their surroundings, and what is happening to them. However, my interest was slightly peaked at the end of the story so that I might just look into reading the second and third installments.

    I understand that the point of view is limited to that of a naive, overprotected, relatively innocent 17-year-old girl; however, most of the time Zaza sounded like she was 13 or 14 which was a little hard to take or believe. Plus living with a house filled with that many boys would take some of the naivete out of her...she'd be more brash. Not saying that the very opening scene doesn't show her as brash...

    This is most definitely a story that should NOT be labeled YA, unless bookstores create new categories for Tween YA and Older Teen YA. This is the latter all the way - rated R or NC-17 if it were a movie.

    [Spoiler alert]
    Let's get to the nitty gritty, shall we. I was completely floored by the main focus of the story being sex. It might be appropriate to call that part of the book 17 Shades of Grey.

    The plot twist...I found it neither disgusting nor appalling mostly because I picked up on the HUGE clues 1) the main character is named after a demon, 2) her best friend's name is the same as the mother of all demons, 3) the texts and emails included the "number of the beast" and mentioned "the vessel," 4) her parents mentioned Samhain (sp?), 5) Homecoming was on Halloween [which is way too late for a high school homecoming], 6) there are no churches in town, 7) Zaza chose to be a Vestal Virgin for Halloween, and 8) Zaza's mother gave her a pentagram necklace to wear. All that adds up to no good.

    A town full of Satanists is not a new plot point. I think there a few horror movies out there like that. And the main scene could have been so much worse than black rose petals, candles, and "black mass" rituals. Not to mention that the violence that follows Zaza and Jason's escape is the same as any R-rated chase or gangster movie (thinking Pulp Fiction, The Godfather, etc.).

    What I found most disturbing were the clues Hallam was putting together with regards to Jason's conception...I started thinking that the two were brother and sister. That would truly have been icky. I know people who have thrown books where that allegation was made a plot point.

    Will I read it again? No. Was it a waste of time? Meh, not really. Will I read the remaining two books? Maybe if the eBooks get to $.99.

    Great book!

    I thought this was great. I found it on myspace and i fell in love with this book from the start! I didn't want to stop reading it. The plot is very good. I was so intrigue with Jason i want to find out his secret and i understood why Azazel was so interested in him. I was really surprised that the whole town was worshiping Azazel like the demon and wanted the girl Azazel to fill his shoes to KILL Jason and the Son Brother are after him. I love this book i think whoever like drama and romances should read this.

    Great Read

    Really enjoyed the storyline with this book! I was engaged almost immediately and didn't want to put the book down. The author did a good job with her character development as well as "world building." I am looking forward to reading the other two books in the trilogy. VJ Chamber's books are definitely worth your time and a good way to spend that extra time!

    Good read...

    I downloaded this book because it got good reviews and it's free, and I wasn't disappointed. I couldn't put the book down! There are a few typos but hey not too many to be distracting. I would recommend for sure!

    Disappointing

    This first book is pretty good but the series overall gets worse and worse until i just could not read anymore...and i never give up on a story until i know how it ends....until now. It isnt a trilogy but just keeps going apparently and the fourth book is inconclusive and beyond gross...no way could i stomach any more. I will never trust this author again

    Unsure what I had gotten into

    I thought this would be a different kind of read. It was a bit surprising when I got into a few of the chapters--I'm glad I obtained the book on a special deal. However, as it goes with series and me, I feel like I need to read the two other titles in the trilogy. The characters seemed a little awkward and there wasn't a lot of development--perhaps by design given the enigmatic lives Jason and Azazel had lead before coming together. I don't want to spoil the read for anyone interested.

    Dark Star

    When I fisrt disovered this book it was by accident I didnt know that i would enjoy it. I read this book on my kindle fire but also have it on my nook. This book is very original in the begining it has to thinking this is just another book about a teen making out with her boyfriend and somehow they have to save the world together. You never think why doesn't toby want to do it. When Jason comes he is a mystery he is very noce and kind hes a little paranoid but then you wonder why she has second thought on toby you won
