This, this is one ultimate vampire themed book. It’s one of the best Young Adult books I’ve read so far. It gives an extraordinary twist to the mythological nature of vampire. I love the plot, it’s quite amazing and every scene is unpredictable. The writing is exceptional, and every detail was finely described. I love how the flashback parts get coordinated with the present scenes and it doesn’t jumble up and made me wonder on what’s going on.
The romantic moments of Lenah and Rhode are very interesting even though it was emphasized in the flashbacks. It’s sad and yet it’s really romantic that Rhode sacrificed himself just so Lenah could attain her human body once again. Rhode is a very noble and a man of his words. I’m just disappointed that I only saw glimpses of him in this book. Lenah is one of the best female protagonists that I’ve known and come to love. She’s smart, brave and she could easily fit in with her environment even though the time she remembers has long been gone. The other characters are also exceptional with different sort of personalities that I can’t help not to notice. I’m just a little sceptical with Justin and Lenah’s relationship due to its rush.
The climax part made my heart jump and I never foresee the events that’s about to happen. I’m just a little disappointed to meet the ending in a very fast rate although it’s an ending that made me crave for the sequel and I hope I could see more of Rhode in the rest of the series.
