Brittany felt empty. This thing was going to turn her into a stone — inside and out. Petrified organs and stone-cold emotions. “Where are we getting our next boost from?” E.V. asked. Brittany rolled her eyes. Boost – like she was an addict looking to score her next hit. (Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review courtesy of the publisher.
This was a book that I have mixed thoughts on. On the pro side, the book was completely unique and certainly an interesting take on the “vampire” story. Additionally, it was incredibly refreshing to have a story that is not a teaser for a new series that you’re going to be sucked into. The concept and purpose of E.V. was also a creepy reveal to me.
The flip side to me is that I found the story somewhat repetitive at times. I think the book could have been shortened quite a bit and it still would have been an equally compelling book. My other complaint is that everything was wrapped up in the final 15% of the book and everything leading up to that was of the form “this happened, then this happened”. Despite those critiques, this was still a solid book and I would certainly read future books from the author.
Warning: Contains frequent violence.
Rating: 3 stars!
Who should read it? Paranormal fans looking for something a little unusual.
