Review by: Sadie S. Forsythe on Dec. 12, 2014 : (no rating)
I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from this book. The synopsis is pretty vague. But I'm sure I didn't dare hope to find such good writing, interesting characters and quite so much action.

Admittedly, I noticed a few missing words and editorial mistakes and it takes quite a while for the reader to figure out what is going on (though to be fair, it takes the main character a while too, so that's perhaps forgivable). The main character's wilful ignorance or denial last longer than seems otherwise tenable, there is quite a lot of seemingly aimless running about, and the help that arrived at the end was awful convenient. But despite that, I really enjoyed the psychology (for lack of a better description) of discovering yourself changing into an impossibility. I liked the diametric natures of Roth and John. There are enough twists to keep the reader engaged, but not so many that you start to feel manipulated. And while there is apparently a sequel, Phoenix, coming out the book ends satisfactorily. No precipitous cliffhanger.

I quite enjoyed this one and have no qualms recommending it to fans of vampire (of the not quite sparkly, though not quite gothic sort) fiction.
