This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review and after having read it. I feel this is a good book for young adults or people who don't like explicit sexual content in the books they read. Though the protagonist is twenty she definitely comes off as younger because of a lack of life experience and seems naive, I think this book is the first in a series because of the way it ended. This story takes place in a post- apocalyptic world after vampires fought with humans for control and after a virus and some weapons of mass destruction were unleashed. The author did a good job of explaining how the world became the way it is and also how a young girl got caught up in a cryogenics experiment only to wake up an a world ruled by vampires and where humans are slaves. This was a good light read. Where the protagonist finds herself attracted to one of the ruling vampires and he is attracted to her in return. I don't want to give away spoilers about why the protagonist Meryl was chosen for the experiment or what makes her so special but it is revealed towards the end of the book and we find out that it will be very important in the second book. A good light read suitable for young adults or those who aren't focused on a lot of sex in their books. There is hardly any sexual content. This book is more about setting up the world and explaining what is going on with the characters, vampire vs. human.. I think that the second book will be much more action oriented.
This is a very difficult book for me to review; it’s one of the first books that I’m completely torn between the good and bad. I was very impressed with the author’s story idea. It’s a completely unique and fascinating take on vampires in a futuristic world where they have usurped humans’ control of the world. The sudden change in the world that the main character, Meryl, wakes up to drove home the plot. I was pretty crazy over the hierarchy, the division of the world, and the conspiracies wound into the story. This story and series has the potential to be an amazing blockbuster, both on the pages and on a premium cable channel. And the artwork is absolutely gorgeous and amazing! Now for some of the bad, the author is from Spain and I don’t know if this is the reason behind some of the issues in the book. The story NEEDS an editor. There are multiple levels of editing issues that need attention. Overall, the story is really good and although there were a few times I wasn’t sure if I could read through the editing problems, I did and I’m glad I finished.
