    Totally engrossing and well-written

    As an adult who reads too many YA novels, I was very excited to try out a new series from a brand new author - and the book did not disappoint! If you're feeling "vampire fatigue" from all the contributions to this genre recently, I strongly suggest you give this one a try. It follows the lives of both the vampires and the vampire-hunters, which creates an interesting situation where you find yourself sympathizing with, and even cheering for, people who are trying to kill each other. Another plus - the book is very well-written. The story pulled me in right from the start, and I never lost focus due to the writing style. This is uncommon in the world of YA, and a lot of books written for this age group sacrifice writing style, which is a huge detriment to young adults (and the many adults who read this genre). To give a brief synopsis, the book follows the lives of 3 very different characters – Duncan (a vampire), Lucy (a vampire hunter), and a totally normal teenager named Grace. Each character has a separate story that develops independently, and each story is extremely engaging. While Duncan and Lucy struggle with a world of kill or be killed, Grace stresses about grades, friends and boys. It isn’t until almost the end that you learn how the stories are related - and the climax had me totally engrossed, unable to stop reading. Finally, a sure sign of a good book – I like to read before bed, and reading this book made me stay up past my bedtime on multiple occasions. The book left me hungry for more and I can’t wait to read the next books in the series!! Also, although I myself am an adult, I would definitely recommend this book for readers as young as pre-teens. It has no more violence or "scariness" than the Harry Potter books, and honestly it is so refreshing to see quality writing for this age group. Just a note for parents out there!
