Overview

From the bestselling author of 33 A.D.

New York City, 1986.

The name of the beautiful woman in the red dress is Raine, and Vincent Walker has no idea she's about to change his life forever - by ending it.

Now, impossible as it is to believe, Vincent is turning into a vampire. He sets out to find the woman who changed him, hoping she can take it back. Instead, he finds himself at the mercy of the infamous Council of Thirteen. Not wanting to risk any of its more valuable servants, The Council assigns him the task of bringing her back to be punished for turning him without permission. If he succeeds, the woman he loves will be no more. If he refuses, the Council will take out its anger on him, instead.

But Vincent is not the only one looking. Something driven by a century-old vendetta hunts them both, and it won't stop until they are destroyed. If Vincent can find Raine first, the two may be able to disappear together. But he is beginning to like the growing evil inside him. Already he wonders if he will save her, or kill her himself.

    Interesting take on becoming a vampire

    ** spoiler alert ** I really wasn't sure whether I was going to like this book or not, up until the very end. I had seen this story described as a sort of vampire romance, which is initially what drew me to it. It's not though, at least not by any definition of romance I have. I never believed that Vincent really loved Raine; he barely knew her. Obsessed with her? Sure. In lust with her? Absolutely. Affected by vampire attraction mind control or something? Yeah.

I had seen this story described as a sort of vampire romance, which is initially what drew me to it. It's not though, at least not by any definition of romance I have. I never believed that Vincent really loved Raine; he barely knew her. Obsessed with her? Sure. In lust with her? Absolutely. Affected by vampire attraction mind control or something? Yeah. In love with her? Not by my definition of the word. I'm one of those party poopers who think love at first sight is a crock of $#!7. Not believing that he loved her, I'm not sure the ending had quite the emotional impact it might have otherwise, but I do really like how we see that Vincent, as a vampire, is a monster. He's not the man he was when he was a alive. I love vampires with souls on occasion (Angel, Spike...NOT Edward Cullen though), but it was refreshing to see the process as Vincent changes from the man he was into the monster he is. I had some problems with the storytelling in places, but for me, the ending made up for them. Side note: The story is told in first person. I know that really turns some people off, so be forewarned. I'm not usually a first person kind of girl, but it didn't bother me in this case. I know other people really love that, so, if you're one who loves it, this book might be right up your alley. Technical notes: I had some formatting weirdness, but it was limited to a handful of places in the book.

    This is okay.

    I did not enjoy this book. I will probably not buy any more of David McAfee books. I did not like his writing, the premise was okay.

    A good vampire book.

    A different take on the vampire story. There are a few formatting issues,but only a few. This was an interesting story and I look forward to reading more by this author.

    Terrible writing

    A plodding, boring, cliched story.

    Saying goodbye

    If you've read 33AD, you'll recognize some of the names when you read this book. If you haven't, don't worry, this book is just fine as a stand alone story. Follow the story of a man, your average joe, who happens into the wrong bar on the wrong night. Follow him on his journey into the darkness as he falls in love with the mysterious and beautiful Raine and becomes one of The Chosen. Watch as he struggles with what is right and the hunger that won't be ignored.

    While I very much enjoyed Saying Goodbye to the Sun, I think I enjoyed 33AD more. I liked the rapid pace and nonstop action. That said, I'd recommend Saying Goodbye to the Sun to those who enjoy a good bloody vampire book. David McAfee is one to watch.
