Review by: Ellu Saisio on Nov. 26, 2015 :
A long time ago, I was looking for more SanSan fics on AO3 and found Sansa the Vampire Slayer. Finding it cute, if a bit OOC for the main character, I clicked on subscribed and promptly forgot because I like high fantasy better than teenage bit lit...

So imagine my surprise when I found out this fic was abandoned and turned out to become a story on its own! I thoroughly enjoyed this read ! I spotted a few typos during my reading that made like three sentences in the whole book make no sense, but this is not my main problem with the book :

I find that it lacks a true antagonist. I wished for Aeron Armstrong to truly become that antagonist and he was endlessly being glossed over, appearing only a handful of times in favour of some family fluff, which is far from bad, don't get me wrong. I hope the second book improves on that, though in the end, it didn't make my read bad, just lacking in an aspect I like as a reader. Writers aren't always there to please their crowd.

Also, Simon is underdeveloped. Seriously, hurry with these sequels or I swear I'll write fanfictions of your work ! *FULL CIRCLE* *MIND BLOWN* *END OF THE INTERWEBZ*
