    Somewhat tedious, Interesting plot

    The concept was interesting, but the author felt that he had to brow-beat you into drawing the right conclusions about his characters. Long-winded explanations broke up any type of pace or tension that he had set. The main action in the book only took about 4 hours, so it almost felt like watching unedited home movies.

    .

    Though the charactors were interesting there was way too much backstory... they might as well have been the name of this book. I found myself skipping alot simply because at a certain point i got very bored of every charactors life history.

    Good

    I wouldnt say this book was great but it is good. Hate how it ended, think the book has a little too much unneccesary details. Could've left out alot and completed the whole book and not had to have a part 2. At times it will bombard you with too many characters which you can easily mix up and forget who was who.

    I was really impressed with this book - good story, nasty villai

    I was really impressed with this book - good story, nasty villains, sympathetic and flawed characters, and no glaring grammatical errors. Unlike many reviewers, I enjoyed the backstory of each character, since understanding motivation made the action that much more important. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

    Excellent book!!!!!!!!

    Love this series! It is one of my favorites & is brilliantly written. The author brings each character to life and it will keep you on edge the whole way through! The only downside is, I am dying to read the next one & it's not finished yet..of course, I'm not one to have pacience!lol

    Could not hold intrest

    Over 150 pages of back story that should have been shortened. It read like it was going to be a good story, once it got to it but got tired of waiting and quit reading it.

    Quite good

    A bit implausible in places, but a good, quick read, and way above most free book fare. Will definitely read the sequel. Y

    This book was different (in a good way) from other vampire type books. The world is a much different place where the leaders and the richest of our society are controlled by small vampire clans. The setting is a private school where during their senior year one girl will be chosen by a series of contests to become an immortal. They are called the girls in black and it is their choice to enter. Win and a world of power and wealth is yours. If you lose...you die. This year one of the contestants is not who she seems to be. This series is a great read, however it's written for girls...sorry guys. Jp

    Blah blah blah!

    This book has way to much going on.... The story is okay but I don't think I've ever skipped so much of a book in my life. I'm about to give up...

    N Meh

    I hope this book was self published, otherwise the agent/editor needs more practice. This isn't the worst book, but it spends way too much time getting to the plot. The world isn't complex enough to warrant an entire book just setting it up. Got it for free, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered.

    Pbbbbth

    The idea had so much promise- billionaire teenagers engaged in high school battle for true immortality. All wrapped up with vampires and conspiracy theories. Mean girls with fangs. Unfortunately, the briefing is better than the novel. The writing is dull and unartistic, the characters are all morally craven and the vamps just not sexy or horrendous enough. The concept is excellent, but the execution literally killed the story.

    Great book for teenagers

    I read the book passing the time until a book I had been waiting for came out. It really is a great book for teenagers.

    Great start to a potentially good series! (Knock on wood)

    This book is great! Great potential. First book I've read by this author. About to by book 2. Hopefully it's everything this book is and more :)
    NOTE: I personally thought some parts of the book paid a little too much attention to detail almost to the point where it seemed irrelevant to the story.
