This book was GREAT!
I got sucked right into this book.
What I love about Vampire books are the different ways people view Vampires. Smith's version is pretty good. The way they can age if they were "born" a Vamp was very interesting. The sunlight only taking away their Vampire abilities, and not killing them was very interesting as well.
It's a great Romeo and Juliet sort of book. One that gets you really sucked into their relationship.
Though I loved being able to experience the "change" with Poppy, it wasn't like I would have thought. It seems too easy, non-painful, and too fast. Though that is just me.
I still adored this book and cannot wait to read the next one. It's gotten me hooked and I cannot wait to find out what happens next!
A friend recommended this book and I immediately requested it from Paperbackswap.com.
Interesting story. On the very first day of summer vacation, 16-year-old Poppy was told she was going to die. And die painfully. She had an incurable cancer. But James, her very best friend in the world could save Poppy. First, he has to break a few rules, like telling her that he wasn't an average teenager, but a vampire, a member of the Night World. Then he wants to turn her into a vampire. While it will save her life, it will mean giving up her family.
A very typical teenage romance, sprinkled with supernatural beings. Some pieces of dialogue seem to make no sense whatsoever but other than that, it was a pretty typical story; an easy read. I like the aspects of it well enough that I plan on reading the second book.
