Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - Audio
Gr 9 Up—This novella by Amanda Hocking gives background to one of the characters in Amanda Hocking's "My Blood Approves" series. Written in letter form, Peter Townsend describes the events of his life before meeting Alice. The description of his human life, his transformation into a vampire, his great love affair with Elise, and the story of her death are all detailed in his letters, written to Elise. Fans of the series will be interested in this latest addition, but they may be disappointed. While details of the story provide interest, Peter's melodramatic proclamations of love become repetitive. The narration also switches between talking directly to Elise and describing details that we can assume she would already know. The audio version does a fair job in delivering the story, but listeners may be thrown off by a female narrator reading Peter's words. Purchase only where there is heavy interest in this series.–Rebecca Flannery, Lyman Memorial High School, Lebanon, CT

Peter's story is truly a tragedy, it seems no matter how happy he wants to be, he's always doomed for tragedy, and from his last entry, it seems like he's willing to break that streak and find the happiness that he truly deserves, though, possibly not with Alice. Anyone who feels that there wasn't enough of Peter in the previous 4 books should read this. He's really a funny, thoughtful, romantic, and all around good guy (I'd like to see Jack write something like this). If only Alice had given him a chance. So definitely read this book if you're a Peter fan, you won't regret it. He's really a lovable character.

Letters to Elise is just the perfect compliment to My Blood Approves Series. Letters to Elise gave a different way of feeling and seeing to My Blood Approves through Peters emerald eyes. I am waiting for a 5th book!!

First, let me say that I absolutely love Amanda's writing; so few authors can make you literally giggle while reading alone in your bedroom and cause you to fall in love with the characters as if you knew them yourself. I am a big fan of My Blood Approves and always rooted for Peter, but I was a bit hesitant to pick up a compilation of letters. Oftentimes I find this format takes away from the flow of the story and I prefer a femal POV. However, this book flowed so well and I finished it in about 2 1/2 hours! I could not put it down and the length was perfect: not too long that it dragged but not too short that there were too many loose ends. This really felt like a real compilation of letters and Hocking gavce each writer their own tone and style. This novella leaves you wishing for the next installment in the My Blood Approves series and really gives insight into Peter's character. It is a great afternoon read. P.S. if you haven't picked up Hocking's Trylle Trilogy, it is a must read!!!! So funny and original and I cannot wait for the final installment (Hocking is phenomenal about publishing her books in a timely manner!)

A very satisfying addition to the My Blood Approves series. In this novella, everything is explained as to why Peter is the way it is. It explains everything about him that wasn't explained before. In this stunningly heart-felt book we see through the cover of lies Peter has hidden himself in, we see him in his purest form, we see the real him. The great thing about this book was that it gave a sense of closure to the whole series without giving everything away and at the same time it felt like its own story, Peter's story. At points, I wanted to weep and at others I felt so terribly happy. The ending wasn't really an ending though, for immortality never is. Definitely something to read while waiting for the next addition to the My Blood Approves series.
