But if you didn't believe in monsters, then how were you going to be able to keep safe from them? 3.5/5 stars
It's been a while since I've read a book about vampires and it felt good when this book held my attention. I mean, I'm not fond of them but this was a good read. In a creepy sort of way.
I'm quite horrified at someone thinking it would be nice to be a vampire. Well according to the book, being a vampire has it's perks but wishing to be one doesn't make any sense. Do you hate your life so much? Living forever might actually sound enticing but that will be so tedious. I mean, you would see the people you loved grow old and die. And why am I really focusing on this? It's not as if there's a way to really live forever.
I liked the heroine, Tana. I think she's very brave. About the hero.Gavriel. What are you? Sometimes I think you're cute and other times I felt horrified at the things you do. I mean you we're pretty awesome. Just stay away from blood and all those gory things.
Okay. The kiss (was that kissing?) between Tana and Gavriel was definitely worthy of feels. It's freaky,yes but I find it very amusing.
I'm absolutely horrified when Tana was bitten by Midnight. I mean, I think I saw it coming, but I was still shocked and freaked out when that happen. I'm like "omg omg omg" and then she killed her. She killed Midnight.
And that's why you should get away from me as fast as you can and keep going. Even my love is monstrous, Tana..
I felt kind of weird when Tana and Gavriel were drinking each others's blood. It does have a sensual and intimate appeal to them but it just kind of gross me out a little bit. I mean, I ship the two of them together but please, I don't want to read about those things again. I wonder though, will vampires in a relationship do that if they were real?The plot twist:
It was awesome! I didn't saw that coming.
I feel quite unsatisfied at the ending though. Is Tana going to be a vampire? What will happen with Tana and Gavriel's relationship? I actually want to read about Tana when she'll be like screaming and begging to be let out.
Overall, it was a great read. I'd recommend it to anyone who didn't want to get invested in a series at some time and prefer some stand alone novels.
