Let me first say, I LOVED THIS BOOK! There are so many vampire books out there today, now don't get me wrong I love vampire books, but they tend to be overdone and predictable. This book is NOT predictable; I love how it not like anything else I have read. I think that when people read vampire books they always have this habit of comparing it to Twilight. Let me say that THIS BOOK IS IN NO WAY LIKE TWILIGHT! The sappy girl meets boy, boy turns out to be a vampire thing is kind of overdone. Yes, I fell into the Twilight trap prepared for this to be something similar. This book is SO MUCH MORE & SO MUCH BETTER than anything I was expecting. Ari is not some weak little human girl she is a bad a**! I am hooked and starting the 2nd book now, I can't get enough!
