Raven was an emotional roller coaster since the very beginning. Its a never ending ride that wont leave you bored.

What I greatly found enjoyable about Raven was the history of the characters. I found how they came to be interesting and captivating. Not only that, but how that defined them later on.

The dancing was fabulous! The battling was entertaining to read especially if the reader was able to visualize the stunts and tricks. Impressive terminology of the various moves to breaking and the description as well! While I was able to get the gist of many of the dances, after many television shows previously watched, I found that it might be a bit hard to understand for others. A glossary in the back going into further details would have been a bit helpful.

In addition there were some areas where I felt that it faltered. Throughout the entire novel, spells were mentioned but never in detail. I wanted to know more about it, the concept, the way it was used, how it was used!

The ending itself was another issue for me. What happened to the others characters after the group split up? Did they travel somewhere else, did they die?

Overall: An addicting read from start to finish no matter the flaws. A 24 episode drama compacted into a simple 300 or so paged book.

I actually am struggling with how to describe this book. First off,
it's one I couldn't put down. And although it kept me interested, there
was a bit missing from it. I couldn't connect with the main character.
Not always crucial, but it made me feel a little bit empty when I
finished it.

But that's just me, so here's what I loved about
it: the romance, the intrigue, the way it ended in a different way than
usual, and the street-ness about it. I love the break dancing, though
it definitely spared the violence that usual comes with it. What
violence there was seemed to start and end just as quickly and had more
to do with supernatural elements. I liked the different kind of
paranormal - the way they had to survive. It made the book a bit
darker, but more honest too.

I guess this book felt like it was over too fast. I wanted more.

Raven....minor working at the hottest club in NY. She's in love with Zin, the sexy man who serves as a work friend, crush, dance group leader, and vampire in her life. Yup, here comes another vampire love story.

- The story felt rushed.
   - Learning Zin's secret.
   - The very end felt really rushed. A good book should not be rushed through.

- A new type of vampires.

- Raven is the main character but I did not like her. Or anyone for that fact.

-I would read a sequel to see if it is any betterr than the first one.

- I'm done now.
