“A vampire story with a twist. The book wasn't too bad, interesting characters, like the romance between Dean and Mindy and an interesting concept. It would a been a solid four star rating for me if it wasn't for the direction the story took. Mindy and Dean's relationship took some time to get started, when it did he tries keeping her at a distance for her safety, and in the end they didn't have that much time together before everything went to crap. The ending was depressing, not sure if the story is going to get any easier for me to read with the way the book ended, it was just too sad. Oh yeah, in more than half the book we heard from Mindy's POV and later back and forth from Dean's POV. Dean's POV was the same in tone as Mindy's there was not much variation from Mindy's POV for me except that Dean comes across as a lot older, like a grown man and not a high school kid. Dean's nickname for Mindy was Lina, from her middle name Melina, and he was always "my Lina", it was a bit off-putting since by then the secret of who he his was revealed and it didn't make any sense for him to have the narrator voice written for him.
Shane, the villain of the story, I actually like him in the few interactions he had with Mindy.
The paranormal part wasn't too bad but the romance was a let down.”
