"Because I don't believe you are a slave to what you've become. I don't believe that you simply can't."
First of all the ending of this book totally saved it from me giving it two stars. I liked this book well enough if I look to the whole book. The story was quite original and I did like this type of vampires. They were like I would expact vampires to act. Dark, gritty and wanting blood. Though some of them actually have also feelings. So points for that. What I didn't like however sometimes was the writing. It just didn't flow well with me I guess. And also some of the characters. I was frustrated by Sofia which is a bad thing since she's one of the main characters but damn the girl was kind of annoying. Derek I didn't like as much as I wanted too. At some points he was okay but mostly he was such a lame, whiney guy, and for a vampire that just won't do for me. She had become my one remaining link to humanity and t was clear to me that her ruin would be my ruin.
But I have to admit that I was a little intrigued by Sofia and Derek's relationship. There were times were they were seriously cute together. He always managed – in one way or another – to take my breath away.
There were also some unexpected twists like Ben showing up and totally ruining whatever Sofia and Derek had going on. Damn it!
. So that made me like it a little more.
The ending definitely turned this into a 3 star read because it was really cute and kind of heartbreaking. I'm a sucker for ending like those. As for the other characters. There were some I actually liked like Corinne and Vivienne. There were also a great villain. Because every story needs one. Lucas. He was definitely a psychopath and being also a vampire that makes him totally nuts. But like I said every story needs a good villain.
So overall this was an okay, even a likable book that has some flaws here and there. But I am curious how this story will continue and definitely interested in reading the sequel to see what's going to happen now.
