Lately, I've found the books I've been reading to be average at best. They contained twists that broke literary rules, the plots were mediocre, etcetera. I was wondering if I'd seen and heard everything this genre had to offer. This one broke that streak. It captured my attention. It sounds like it's actually being narrated by a teenager, but still contains the occasional big word. It was descriptive without letting discription get in the way of the action. It was romantic enough, and not obscene. And the end contained some surprises, but they didn't uproot the plot. In addition, I've heard about all there is to hear about vampires, werewolves, faeries and angels, so this business about bean sidhes is new and interesting. This is one of the first books I've read in a while that I actually do recommend.

I thought Nash's and Kaylee's relationship took off waaaay too quickly. The plot moved very quickly, and most of the time, the author wrote scenes re-explaining things that have already been discussed, and I feel like that took up most of the 'space' in the story. I feel like we didn't really get an idea on what Nash's character was like, and the transitions could've been better. I liked Todd, though :)

A love story that seems realistic and not cringe-worthy gooey for once! There are 3D characters from all supporting characters. And the ending is shock! shock! shock!

The novel started off fast and every single chapter ended with a cliffhanger. I was planning on rating this book four stars most of the way through because it was great -- just didn't have that extra umph like some of the other bestsellers. Then the climax creeps up on you and everything falls into place. It feels like a jumbo jet going past when you feel the rush of air afterwards.

I can't wait to read the next books in the series and from Rachel Vincent because I have so much trust in what she does. For the record, I'm almost twenty-one and I still loved this YA novel.

For all those who scanned straight to the bottom: read "My Soul to Take".

Vincent is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors. I loved this series opening, the whole concept feels unique and different even though it really isn't. Gotta love authors that can take a concept and make it fresh and new.

This book starts off with best friends Emma & Kaylee sneaking into a club. I like that while Kaylee isn't an 'it' girl she also isn't a social leper either. I enjoy that she sneaks into clubs and does thing that your average teen does. I found her character to be one that I easily related to and that made this book highly addictive. Yet despite the normalcy I loved that she had a tortured and battered past. That her life wasn't fully average. I do think that considering her stint in a ward that there would be more damage. I found her softness towards her Aunt & Uncle at certain moments in the book to be off, or perhaps I'm just cold-hearted but I wanted to see more of her rage, hopefully in the second book we get more of it. Anger at her father for allowing it and now swooping in. (Yes I realize there is a prequel to this series but I'd still like some backlash.)

Hottie, Nash Hudson is just that a hottie. I naturally liked him and he did some unexpected things that I enjoyed. My biggest issue with him is that for someone with such a play-boy reputation he didn't really act like it. Again, Vincent could be doing her trade-mark zig when I think she'll zag but I do hope we get more back-history on him. Was he that much of a play-boy and if so are his intentions with Kaylee fully honest or is he hoping for something in return??

I love that Vincent does that. That her writing style isn't predictable and that really, she could totally change things. I love that I have another few books to eat through before I'm caught up, because her writing is such an addiction for me! I cannot wait!
