First of all... *sigh*. Second... Talk about guilty pleasure! And
third... Well, if you thought you liked Sam, wait til you meet Cole...
um, yeah, Sam who?

I wish I could come up with enough praise to complement her writing. But
I'm not Maggie, so if you want to find out how fantastically inspiring
she writes you're gonna have to read her books. Look, seriously, she
could write about aliens who become vampires but in fact are fallen
angels, and I would loyally read without hesitation. And the fact that
she writes about Cole just makes it all the better.

If you read Shiver (which you should because this one cannot stand
alone) you might be wondering what else could happen in Sam and Grace's
dramatic existence. They meet Cole. Cole St. Clair is the hottest, most
famous teen rock-star of the decade (drugs included) and was just bitten
by Beck.

This time the story alternates between four points of view: Sam, Grace,
Isabel and Cole, which was a little confusing but really enjoyable. It
allows the reader to get to know these new characters thus becoming main
parts of the story. While Grace and Sam are somewhat plain and boring
characters (I love them, but they are), Isabel and Cole are the spark or
the malice that was necessary for this book to be interesting. While I
did love Shiver I knew that if she wanted to keep her slow poetic
pace she needed someone like Isabel to step up and inject some fun into
it. It totally worked, and even though the story lacked action and the
pace was slow, the character development and again, the writing, kept me
involved the whole time. I highly recommend this series.

Overall, a wonderful sequel to a wonderful book. I cannot wait for the
next one!
