review 1: An interesting take on the typical vampire storylineWarning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS. Rating: 8/10PROS: - As is usually the case with this author, the world is fascinating. Its basic premise is familiar, but a number of unique details are included that throw it out into its own category. I was hooked from the first scene.- The narrator’s mind is full of endearing little musings (example: “I’m not sure why her oral hygiene was so poor. Other bodily odors I could understand, given the shortness of her arms relative to the size of her body. But it looked to me as if her hands should be able to reach her mouth just fine, especially since a toothbrush would add three, maybe four inches to her range”). These musings take the reader of... moref on fun little tangents and create a sense that Mark is always about two steps away from madness in this hellish world he lives in.CON:- I found the conclusion to be a bit disappointing. Not the *way* it ends, but rather *where* it ends. I wanted to see more of the resolution. I can enjoy a romance with or without sex, but this one has a decent amount of buildup on that account and not much payoff.Overall comments: The story has a macabre tone that I found both funny and slightly disturbing. However, I had heard the book described as “romantic horror, heavy on the horror,” and I found it less gross/disturbing than most of the other JCP books I’ve read.
review 2: Amazing book. This is what Twilight should have striven to be! The characters were lovable and intense. The "science" of vampirism is well explained and once the pace picks up it is well maintained. The only thing I would have liked to have seen was one good satisfying romp in the sack between the two protagonists. We wait until nearly the end of the book for their first kiss (well worth it though)but we never get to read about them actually making love. The only other thing I have to say about the book? Sexy, moody, Hungarian, gay vampire. What the hell are you waiting for??? less
