    The beginning of the story was intriguing a one fanged vampire The one fanged vampire phenomenon was a great way to catch a paranormal reader s attention I mean, who gets bitten by a one fanged vampire It s unusual, not unheard of, and definitely not an angle that is used very often in vampire stories so it gives off the impression of some originality A disabled vampire seems most certainly on the right side of originality But, then the rest of the story needs to display the same kind of cr The beginning of the story was intriguing a one fanged vampire The one fanged vampire phenomenon was a great way to catch a paranormal reader s attention I mean, who gets bitten by a one fanged vampire It s unusual, not unheard of, and definitely not an angle that is used very often in vampire stories so it gives off the impression of some originality A disabled vampire seems most certainly on the right side of originality But, then the rest of the story needs to display the same kind of creativity.And, in walks disappointment For starters, the book was excruciatingly slow and overly redundant There were a whole bunch of issues that took this book from having a unique angle towhat the hell is going on hereI found the plot pattern a little erratic and problematic on a number of levels I understand that this is the first book in the series and maybe the author was trying to set up for future books but, there was a distinct disunity in how the story was presented Because the book felt disorganized to me, the best method I have to explain is a detailed list and explanation.1 There were chronological errors I was so confused when Leesa spoke to Rave of a cure professor Clerval had mentioned which might help her mother Page 103 on the Nook version I kept wondering and searching my thoughts for this phantom conversation I had apparently missed or been too tired to comprehend I gave up perusing my thoughts because I wasn t getting anywhere and decided to keep going and see where I ended up Several pages later page 110 , I got my answer when the conversation actually did take place Thank goodness I wasn t crazy after all When Leesa had mentioned the conversation about a possible cure and I was confused, it was because the conversation hadn t actually occurred yet For me, this was a significant authorial oversight 2 Rave and Leesa s relationship Rave and Leesa s characters were by no stretch of the imagination great They were okay at best mainly because they seemed so underdeveloped Their relationship seemed incredibly flimsy and rushed And they each spent a revolting amount of time kissing or recounting their kissing I like romance but this was the kind of nonsense people go through in early teenage years it was difficult to read without lots of eye rolling, lip curling, and some internal commentary on the ridiculousness of the whole thing They didn t really know each other at all yet, by the third date I use quotes because I m not sure you can classify their meetings as dates, really they re trading secrets and not just any secrets, supernatural secrets There should have beenapprehension and anxiety behind the reveals but both characters seemed instantly at ease with the knowledge about the other and very willing to accept itUmmmm.whatIf you, a human, found out on the third date that your boyfriend was a vampire hunter who killed using a strange internal heat, that by the way, could kill you if he lost control kissing you, wouldn t you be a little concerned There was an attempt later in the book to acknowledge such apprehensions but they were so quickly dismissed that it didn t feel like the characters took it too seriously 3 Plot Disunity The individual aspects Leesa s mother being bitten by a one fanged vampire before she was born, her brother and her fascination with vampires because of their mother s story, her brother s disappearance, Leesa s need to seek answers regarding her brother s disappearance, etc were all necessary pieces of the story However, these points didn t unify very well The initial plot seemed to have been Leesa s need to search out her brother and what happened to him However, after 75 80% of the book had gone by, her brother had only been mentioned a handful of times which was odd The plot changed from finding her brother to a cure for her mother to the impending Destiratu phenomenon that would create an irresistible need to feed for the vampires and likewise, an irresistible need for the Volcaane to hunt These were all great ideas for a complex plot but they weren t balanced well and the transitions from one idea to another felt awkward There just didn t seem to be a smooth flow of events It was disconcerting I definitely don t feel the need to continue the series There are just too many detracting factors

    Hi y all Anne here I ve just finished reading Breathless, I enjoyed this book The first few chapters give you a well detailed view and introduction to all the characters that will play a main role in the book The characters are beautifully flawed like real people they don t project a perfect life or life style They truly are realistic with their struggles in life with a paranormal twist tossed in.

Leesa a shy and loving girl recalls past stories her mother told of a one fanged vampire who attack her while pregnant While Leesa is faced with special circumstances she never slowed her life down she took her hurddles in life and ran with them Her brother, also her role model went away to college keeping his promise to always communicate Leesa became distressed when his emails took a dramatic turn and she stopped hearing from him after his last depressing email On her way to the same college where her brother disappeared, Leesa discovers a whole world she had only heard about in her mothers out ragious tales Rave is a guy unlike any other but so is Stefan. Both of these guys take an immediate intrest in Leesa which she finds obserd given both guys are gorgeous After being hurled into a world where not only vampires exsist but there are other new races of paranormal she never could have imagined Rave or Stefan, who should she choose when both are equally deadly Leesa sets goals for herself to find out all she can about her missing brother and finds all her answers in all the wrong places She is forced to make a decision that will save her brother but will break her heart at the same time. When all is said and done a twist of fate brings the end to a staggering conclusion no one could have seen coming and leaves the budding relationships and family wide open for a mind blowing sequel I recommend this book for all vampire lovers who wanna new and crazy taste of breeds never presented in any other series. Well done with Breathless I can t wait for the next book to come out and see where we go next

    It was okay It was slow in some parts and a little TOO descriptive in others The first thought in my head during one part was This isnt some Twilight wannabe, is it The stories kinda paralleled for a bit there Pretty and shy girl goes to school, meets a handsome auburn haired stranger, they feel an instant and undeniable attraction and pull to each other It does make fun of Twilight for a bit there, but mostly in just a couple paragraphs.To tell you the truth, it was kinda difficult It was okay It was slow in some parts and a little TOO descriptive in others The first thought in my head during one part was This isnt some Twilight wannabe, is it The stories kinda paralleled for a bit there Pretty and shy girl goes to school, meets a handsome auburn haired stranger, they feel an instant and undeniable attraction and pull to each other It does make fun of Twilight for a bit there, but mostly in just a couple paragraphs.To tell you the truth, it was kinda difficult to read Usually when I read a book, I read and lose track of time OMG, its 4am already This time I kept urging myself to just keep turning the page, because as soon as I was finished, I could get to another book I gave it a three because the end of the book was a littleinteresting Did she or didnt she I must admit, if you are a teenage girl, you will EAT this up Sweet and sappy romance, first kiss, and all that jazz But as a near middle age lady, it was a cute read, but nothing that will make me go out and buy the sequels Nothing fleshy and incredibly predictable I also gave it a three star because of the interesting use of characters aka bad dudes The history of the vampires and the originality of the hunters was amusing and I liked it Would like to see it in aadult setting Not sexual, butdrama All in all, a decent read if you are waiting for the good book to be released on kindle or in the bookstore

    This was an easy and well written read It could have gotten pretty complicated with all of the various supernatural creatures and terms, but the author did a good job explaining everything and reminding the reader of the various details, which I appreciated This is also a great book for Fall reading, because it is set in Connecticut in the Fall And there is a Halloween party too The author really put a lot of details into descriptions of clothing and food Sometimes too many clothing d This was an easy and well written read It could have gotten pretty complicated with all of the various supernatural creatures and terms, but the author did a good job explaining everything and reminding the reader of the various details, which I appreciated This is also a great book for Fall reading, because it is set in Connecticut in the Fall And there is a Halloween party too The author really put a lot of details into descriptions of clothing and food Sometimes too many clothing details, in my opinion The color shirt, hair scrunchie, the brands, etc The main character, Leesa, was a sweet young person The kind of girl I would want my own daughter to hang out with This was a pretty clean story with little to no swearing, and nothingthan kissing Sometimes it did seem a little childish that a college freshman was so obsessed with kissing but it did not really detract from the story My favorite aspects were the spooky setting and the writing style I am not sure if I will read the next book in the series, but I am going to keep it in mind

    I have a few problems concerning this book It is not that I did not like the plot In fact, I think that the plot is really unique and quite interesting There were twists and turns that I never saw coming in this book The plot and story deserve 5 stars all by itself, but the problems that I encounter in this book pegs it down to two stars making it a series that I will never finish I will read different books by this author, if I think it is interesting, but I will never finish this series I have a few problems concerning this book It is not that I did not like the plot In fact, I think that the plot is really unique and quite interesting There were twists and turns that I never saw coming in this book The plot and story deserve 5 stars all by itself, but the problems that I encounter in this book pegs it down to two stars making it a series that I will never finish I will read different books by this author, if I think it is interesting, but I will never finish this series I have too many books to read including series and I do not have enough time to take a second chance on this one Getting back to why this novel has been downgraded, one of my problems with this book is its slow pace It is hard t get into a book that has potential, when the pace is as slow as a snail I want to enjoy a novel that does not drag endlessly by, but one that keeps me engaged and always asking questions aout what will happen next I also was annoyed throughout the novel wondering when the main femal character was going to look into her brother s disappearance I kept on waiting and nothing happened, until the last few chapters of the book I wish there wasaction and effort put into his rescue There is a lot of could hae beens in my mind, which makes this book lacking I wish it was better, but it isn t The characters at times were unbelievable and lacking definition It sterotypes college girls as partiers and sluts, which makes me angry Not every girl is like that I get it Leesa is a littleconservative, bt if she truely was, she wouldn t be hanging out with those kinds of people Just saying
