Run time: 6 hrs and 49 mins
A rich girl who doesn’t think her parents love her goes to Athens to stay with a family. She asks a hot vampire to bite her and take a little blood so she can receive the temporary superpowers
- The main character: Gerty kind of just wants to fit in but keeps screwing things up and making it worse.
- Plot: Runs the line between general teen drama (love triangle) and mini-mystery (why is the little girl silent?).
- Vampire stories always have their own brand of ridiculousness. You either embrace that or have a bad time.
- This one weaves in a love of mythology.
- Worldbuilding is decent: These vampires are somewhere in between sparkles-in-sunlight and will-rip-your-face-off.
- Not much Closure: It might as well have a big “to be continued” sign on it. If you intend to read the rest of the series, that’s no problem. If you’re looking for self-contained completeness, this probably isn’t the right book for you.
If you enjoy vampire stories, it’s a decent one to check out.
