                    This book is a very well written book and I would tell any one who liked twilight saga to read this book it has a good vampire lover theme to it. It is riveting and suspenseful. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and I found it hard to put down every night so I could go to bed. I read it during all of my classes. I stayed up many nights past 2 am just because I had to find out what happened next. I give these book 5 stars. M.T Anderson is a vary talented writer I love her work.


                             This book is a chilling story that tells a story of a boy who has an average life until he begins to feel a thirst that can not be filled with any liquid that he tries. Soon he becomes moody and can no longer see his reflection. The smell of blood begins to call to him and make his throat burn. When he meets a costal being named Chet who tells him he is becoming a vampire. The only way he can stop the transformation is to stop the vampire king from escaping from the underworld the humans put him in to save them and their family. But soon he finds out that Chet might not be who he told him he was and is faced with the difficult choice to trust the man who seems to have all the answers or to trust the rest of the world and his gut. Which will he trust?

This book was ok, but it wasn't great. I didn't like the ending at all, it was really stupid to me. The rest of the book was interesting and you wanted to know what would happen, but it wasn't very exciting. I would recommend this book only if you have nothing else to read.

An interesting take on the whole vampire legend. In Chris's world, vampires have always existed. People are wary of vampires, and lynch them when they find them. As his hometown prepares for the annual Sad Festival of Vampires with an ancient ritual (held in a Whitehen Pantry) that keeps Tch'muchgar, the Vampire Lord locked into a prison world, Chris seems to be turning into a vampire. Can he trust his friends and family NOT to lynch him, if that happens? Should he trust Chet a self described celestial being?
to help him not become a blood sucking freak?

While this was a good idea of a new approach to the old I-was-a-teenage-vampire novel, it was ultimately unsatisfying. It was amusing at points, but it just seemed like the author has a good idea that drove him about half way through the novel, and then he had no idea where to go. It meanders to an unconvincing end. It's quite bloody and violent, so if you prefer the more stylized vampire novel, (like the Eclipse Saga) beware.

Unless you feel a need to read every vampire novel available, skip this one.

Chris often hears of vampire murders and lynchings on TV and knows how much people despise them. But one day, Chris learns that he is turning into a vampire himself. An agent from the Forces of Light, Chet, makes a deal with Chris, saying that he'll make him human again if he delivers the Arm into the parallel world where the Vampire Lord is trapped, to keep him from entering their world and taking over. Should he trust him and do as he says, or should he give in to his vampiric urges?

This is an unusual vampire story to me because people already believe vampires exist, even showing vampire lynchings on TV. That's not something we would ever see. Another interesting thing is the plot :there being a Forces of Light, like celestial beings, who try to prevent the Vampire Lord from taking over the world. I think this is a haunting story any vampire-lover will enjoy.

This book is one of the best vampire books I have ever read. The last line is whats makes it and what tears your heart. the whole story held suspense, but you have to read it just for that last line.
