review 1: This book is classified as a young adult but it seems like a hard written book for young adults unless they are avid readers. It has a smooth beginning but you are dropped into a story line with only a bare history. I prefer to know where the main character is coming from and why I am following her story. The characters did grab my attention but I kept wondering why I was following along with them. [return][return]The main character comes across as an adult however she is only 19 and fully independent, but for living on her own it does not give a clear picture of how hard it is for a young girl to get along on her own cross country. I didn't get a feeling or a good description of what was around her at all. The author kept teasing with little phrases on the past but never ... morefully clarified even in the end which leaves me with alot of questions. I understand this will be a series however it doesn't give me much anticipation for the next one because it is so blase about everything except the main character. There was enough interaction with other characters however they never really got a chance to become a connection through the book.[return][return]On the flip side I did like the spin on vampires that was mentioned, as well as the focus on running. It made me want to go out and start running every morning. For as bland as most of the book was the descriptions and emotions really came alive when she described the main character and how she was connected to her surrounding while running. [return][return]The other topic I really enjoyed was the mysterious beings in the woods and mountains. I hope she can go further into detail in the next book on them.
review 2: Wow! I loved this book. I received it as an ARC from Librarything.com and I am so glad that I did! I had a very hard time putting this book down. I love the characters. David and Alex are probably my favorites. I was really enthralled with the book when it came down to the last 50 or so pages. Big twists and turns. The ending leaves a few unanswered questions so I am highly anticipating the next book. I know I will have to wait a while, but it will sure be worth it! less

The publisher sent this to me for review on Vegansaurus; that review is forthcoming, hey all right.
I'm on the fence with this book. I'm not sure if I liked it or didn't like it.
