Jack a.k.a. Jackpot, a 17 year old teenager is attacked by a werewolf leaving him for dead but is saved by a vampire, by transforming him into one. Ten years later, while visiting his graveyard, vampire Jackpot tries to save a beautiful girl from a werewolf, although he knows that even a scratch from the creature means death. Miracles of miracles, Jack instead of dyeing turns into what he always wanted to be … a human, a 'normal' human that can go to school and have a normal life.
He meets Silver, a strong, beautiful, soul-sucker werewolf hunter, and she tells him that he has a destiny to fulfill. If that wasn’t enough for Jackpot to hear she also tells him that everything paranormal wants him dead. So, a normal life, huh? Not a chance when wraiths, vampires, werewolves, fairies, hunters, protective girlfriend’s parents or single minded brothers want to tear you to pieces.
The characters were wonderful; my favorite character was Jersey Clifford (the teacher). I liked how he was refined and calculating, I wish there was more info about him because he is such an interesting character…maybe in the next book we’ll see more.
What I didn’t like in the book were the warnings like ‘if it’s too dangerous don’t do it’ or ‘ today we’ve done a lot, let’s leave it for tomorrow’, the way some characters were introduced, distance and time related measurements, things seem to be repeated, the plot was a bit too predictable, some grammar and typo errors.
The story line is fresh at least I haven't read a vamp/were book like this. The world is a unique one, has a great background history, I love it when an author questions the stereo types put on the supernatural and makes up their own rules it makes for a more interesting read if you have a whole new set of rules to play by.
Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
