I received this book by the author for an honnest review.

Short description

Attacks by groups of boys targeting girls Jazz's age are becoming noticed by the media. Eyewitnesses to the attacks state that these youths seem to possess abilities no normal human would be capable of. Is it drugs or is it something else?

A fantasy novel revolving around a love story between two young people, who should not by rights, come together. Crossing the dimensions of two worlds, this story embarks on a journey of love, duty and togetherness as the two young lovers fight to be together and keep each other safe. Overcoming many obstacles while fighting to protect one another this story will leave the reader intrigued and wondering what will happen next!

My opinion

First of all I liked that this book had a another view on vampires than all the other vampire books that I have ever read. They come from a planet different than the one we live on and I would have loved to learn more about it. When this planet was described in the book I found it fascinating. Also the vampires were different, they didn’t need to drink human blood to survive. I also liked that the book was written in Jezz point of view as well as in Sebs point of view. It’s always interesting to know what both characters think about a situation. Another plus point was that the book was set in Australia. It was nice to have a different setting, because most books I read are set in the US.

But other than that the book was just ok. The story seemed a bit rushed, the book could have been better if it was longer. Also I couldn’t feel the chemistry between Jezz and Seb. And at the end Seb lost some points, what he did, even if he thought it was for the best, is unforgivable. The secondary characters were nothing special, they just didn’t appear enough in the book. So you never really got to know them. It seemed that they were only there to fill up the book.
And then the lead character Jezz. I couldn’t connect with her, believe me I tried. Maybe it was because I couldn’t follow her thoughts, they kept rambling on, or maybe it was because the story was to rushed. She also made some wrong choses, I mean I get that people make mistakes all the time but in this case some of them were just odd.

But I do recommend this book to people who are looking for a vampire book with a different setting and to people who want a quick, light read.
