A SHADE OF VAMPIRE is the first book in the A Shade of Vampire series by Bella Forrest. CA SHADE OF VAMPIRE was provided to me by the author for an honest review.
See previous blog installment for synopsis here: http://frannymiller.blogspot.com/2013/03/book-review-to-come-shade-of-vampire.html
Overall, A Shade of Vampire was good. The writing was good and the story drew me in and kept me reading. Why did I give it 3 stars then? Even after several days of ruminating on A Shade of Vampire, there were 2 major things that really bothered me, the first being the parallels to Twilight. The whole time I read, I had this little niggling sensation in the back of my brain pulsing Twilight, Twilight, Twilight. The second thing that bothered me was... nothing really happened. I knew going in the story would be short. I also don't hold a grudge on cliff hangers, but in a cliff hanger, something is usually resolved.
Back again to what I liked. I can honestly say even knowing the story was short and the parallels to Twilight, I couldn't put the book down once I started. I was pleasantly surprised by it's effect on me. Again, if you enjoy a good YA PNR, go for it. You won't be disappointed. In fact, after the completion of this review, I've decided to bump up the star count to 3.5 stars. Bella Forrest, I look forward to the next installment.
