So, you know about me and my aversion to all things vamper… Welllll, NOT HERE! First, the main part of the story is about the Bruxa, who are the witches. And, as everyone should know, there are good and bad in everything! Some witches are good, some bad. And as we read this story, you find out some Vamps are good, some bad. They have names for them even. Lampires… Interesting. I will not go into detail as you should read the story to find out, but you are getting my drift. And I will also say this. Sometimes, I get bored with love triangles… ALSO, NOT HERE… LAWD! I am quite taken with BOTH boys… But I HAVE picked a side… hehehe don’t we all
Gabby is an interesting girl. She’s a Bruxa, which is a strong witch. And there are different types of witches, which we also learn as we read. Gabby’s life has been pretty sheltered. But her mother has decided that she needs to experience the real world. So off she goes to public school. I REALLY like her new friends, especially Allison. I have strong hopes for her in the coming stories She sees Joey on her first day of school, and of course he is GORGEOUS but, he seems to think she has leprosy hahahaha it’s quite funny how their story starts out. And she begins to learn some things about herself as well. THEN, she finds out some not so good news about herself… Boy, this one was a whiplash moment… Way to totally thicken the plot! LOL
And then comes Alvero…. I can’t believe I am saying this… but for ONCE, I AM SO TEAM ALVERO!!! ANNND he’s a vamper. and to make matters worse- for me anyways- Joey is a favorite type of supernatural of mine… But it gets really complicated here. If you grew up, and were taught ONE THING… HATE THE VAMPS! And your whole life was conditioned in this way, it’s really hard to think outside of that box. This is the complication with Joey and Gabby, especially since Gabby has a compasionate side. And as much as I like them as a couple, even with that TOTALLY SURPRISING NEWS AT THE END, I am still going to side with Alvero. so…. GO TEAM ALVERO. I know there will be some people who take Joey’s team. But I have more doubts about him and his personality. And I have A BIG FEELING that there is a big gaping HOLE with the story about what happened to Gabby’s dad…. and I will make an early prediction…. it will have something to do with Joey, not himself, but his family, or his new “leader”… blah! See, it’s all crazy! hahahaha
I loved the writing. I read this in two sittings, only because I literally fell asleep from exhaustion, not because of anything else. This is one of those stories that will keep you guessing and staying up WAY TOO LATE! lots and lots of secrets, some come out, and some are yet to be revealed. And poor Gabby, everyone lies to her, in some way. Except Allison, which is why I LIKE HER SO MUCH! As a human, she has a little something special within herself, and I hope it gets explored deeper.
I am on a whirlwind ride, as I have NO idea where this story is going to continue. I am VERY hopeful that it will be to my extreme liking. I am seriously wanting book 2, real bad… I am anxious to see what Gabby is going to find out. I JUST KNOW it’s gunna be another earth shattering bomb to be dropped on her. I’ll say this poor girl can take some crap. I dunno how I would handle all the things she handles. Well, I can think of two ways… a straight jacket, or a total killing spree. hahahaha
Fun, Fast paced, intriguing new twists on witches versus vampires! I found a new author to stalk and some new favorite characters! I’m ready for my next thrill ride! gimme gimme book 2, in a hurry please hahaha! 4.5 PAWS from me!
