Overview

In SAVED (Book #1 of the Shadow Vampires), Keira and Amanda, twins, move with their family to a new town, and start their senior year at a new high school. But though they are twins, the girls have different fates. Amanda, beautiful, popular, is sought out by everyone. Keira, who has always lived in Amanda’s shadow, is smaller, awkward, different. Even her mother, who is so close to Amanda, doesn’t know what to make of her other daughter. Keira turns to books, and to her journal, for solace, and to find out about other worlds.

Amanda makes friends easily at the new school, and quickly finds a boyfriend, while Keira is left alone, an outsider. But very quickly, it is clear that something strange is going on in Everstock. The town and the school are very divided. The popular, rich kids act as if they own the school and have nothing to do with the other kids, who are poorer and live in a different part of town. Not only are the kids meaner here, but an unknown infection has gripped the town, with more and more people going to the hospital. Something here is terribly wrong.

But things change suddenly, as there is a terrible accident involving the twins. Not only are Keira and Amanda’s lives changed forever, but a new dimension of life begins to open to Keira.

As Keira recovers, she begins to change in ways she can’t expect, receiving new and mysterious powers that no one can possibly understand. At the same time, a gorgeous, mysterious new boy, Cooper, appears at the school, who grips her imagination, and who refuses to tell her what secret he is hiding.

As Keira and Cooper grow closer to each other, it soon becomes apparent that destiny has brought them together—and that they may each have to sacrifice it all if they want to stay together…

    Seriously?? That was terrible...

    When I read the summary I got really excited about this book... right up until I got about 4 chapters in. This book is filled with really annoying contradictions, underdeveloped characters, teen melodrama that was excessively cliche, and in the end it left way too many thing unanswered for me to even be interested in the sequel. Also, the main characters love interest was a complete bore, and the whole 4 second relationship was unexplained and way too abrupt. Overall: it should have been free...

    Very Badly Written

    This book is not a good read...it's like the author just decided to write and not prof read what she just wrote. It has tooo many conflicting sentences. How can she write that Keira is wearing a dress and at the same time she is wearing pants and a sweater...also how could she fall asleep fully clothe and get up and get dressed...this book is just not making any sense. Im sorry I bought it and I will not get the next book if there is one. There shouldn't be because the plot is stupid too. IT DON'T EVEN DESERVE THE ONE STAR I GAVE IT.

    Not worth the money or time.

    I read alot of these types of books, I love Twilight,Blue blood series,Vampire Academy,Fever Series, House of nighg even the Turned series and this book is NOTHING like those books.This is poorly written and not even worth the money or time. If you are an adult you are not really going to care for this book.

    Poorly edited

    I like the story line, but it was so contradictory... first they spent the night fully clothed, then she put her clothes on. Then she showered and put in slacks, but then suddenly was in a dress. It definitely needs to be reworked.

    Awsome

    The book is really good could not put it down at first think your reading an imitation of twilight but then you relize that the main character has a reason to be the way she is and has a lot of spunk. It was a really good book.

    LOL!!!

    I agree with the one star reviews. I gave it a chance because it was .99 but yes, it should have been free, or better yet - I should get paid for the few hours of my life that I wasted reading it. The hospital was a five story building yet, wait for it, wait for it, she took the elevator to the 17th floor! So was it a magical elevator or maybe an enchanted building? She washed her hair and put on the dress then for some reason she washed her hair again and put on a sweater? The characters were shallow, the storyline was weak, Cooper was no Edward Cullen (not by a longshot), and the writing itself was very elementary. I wanted to like it but I'm sorry, the teen angst and pitiful love story were just not good enough. My 5 year old niece could have written a better novel.
