Book Description

Eren Anderson is a freak among freaks. At 17 years old, he doesn’t fit in with his peers in the tiny town of All Hallows and despite being born into it, he most certainly doesn’t fit in among The Order of Our Mother, the secret nature worshipping society that has harnessed the ability cast spells and believes vampires are not only real, but their deadliest enemies. Eren is turned into a vampire after an attack by the local coven master, but that is the least of his worries...

In a post-Twilight world, “The Red Sun Rises” is a YA novel intended to give vampires their bite back but it should not be read as simply another vampire novel. “The Red Sun Rises” is a story about growing up, responsibility, falling in love, facing your fears and taking fate into your own hands.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Author rising - forget Red Suns! 12 July 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I thoroughly enjoyed this debut book from Victoria Kinnaird. It's a refreshing touch on the YA vampires that dominate our popular culture. It's very well written, flowing seamlessly from chapter to chapter, viewpoint to viewpoint.

    The novel follows outsider Eren, as he begins to learn more about his family, his life, and the entire world surrounding, as he makes his decisions, learns new things and falls in love with a beautiful boy, Corbijn. Whilst characters are flawed, they re believable and that's what gives it sparkle.

    I've already got the next book in the series - can't wait to jump in!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book! Worth every penny!!! 17 Sept. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Some stories are gripping. They hook you in and drag you along and you don't know where you'll end up!
    This book isn't like that at all. It glides along effortlessly, sweeping you up in its wake. It's a bit like riding a slide, you just let gravity do the work `til suddenly you run out of chute and hit the ground with a gentle bump.
    For those interested in a quick review, you should read this book because it is refreshingly direct, challenging, witty, and an honest reflection of the challenges we each face growing up. The plot is streamlined and engaging and at no point do the characters feel contrived to nudge you to any conclusion. You aren't talked down to or expected to accept any moral imperatives. What you take from the book is yours alone.

    To go into more detail, and I won't fawn or gush, this book is brilliant simply because every page is awash with honesty. The language is refreshingly grounded and people actually sound like people. Gone are the clichéd pre-watershed aphorisms or idioms that are constantly substituted for the way teenagers speak. The "screw yous" and "ticked offs" are, when appropriate, abandoned for something much more likely.
    The main character, Eren, is a brat at times, as teenagers often can be, and it is a fantastic idea switching to first person every time he is featured. This lends a certain colour to the way you interpret everything, from his relationships with his friends to the very nature of the world the reader is being welcomed into. His descriptions of Corbijn, for instance, inhabit the distinct position of being seen through the rose tinted eyes of a hormone ravaged teenager experiencing love for the first time. Is he (so sickeningly?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 18 Nov. 2013
    By T ann
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I agree this is a story about coming of age but it's also a great vampires/ witches tale. If you like paranormal rather than teenage tales of angst it's still worth a read - it's full of prophecies, magic, vampires and even reincarnation features somewhere. It's a clever tale of good v evil with the obligatory battle to end the war of course. For such a small price it's excellent and I think I have added another author to my worth looking out for list

    3.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't that impressed. 9 Jan. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I would say for me, this book was slightly above average, hence the 3/5 stars.

    I can't really discuss my main issues without talking about the plot, so warning, spoilers ahead.

    I felt the pace of the book was very strange. Nothing of consequence seemed to happen until around 40% of the way through, with the real meaningful bulk happening at 50% onwards. For me, the start of the book seemed to drag on and on, and then everything happened at once, to the point of a new plot point being developed every few pages. Many of the new plot points being introduced seemed out of the blue.
    For instance, the magic. Within two lines, the character is manipulating the wind. I understand that he is instinctually good at magic, but the way it was written allowed for no progression or development in my mind.
    Another one - finding the paper in the desk drawer.
    Similarly, the main character acted very mature at times, and extremely childish at other times, which was a bit jarring to read.

    I think the plot of the book was interesting, and it was a decent book, but nothing mind-blowing.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A great Read 30 Sept. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I am pretty sure that The Red Sun Rises is not aimed at me as its core audience. Teenage vampires mixed with sexual tensions and a decent dose of self doubt is not aimed at a married man in his 30s. And yet I have to say I enjoyed the read, this is simply because the story is a brilliant one. I am not going to give any of it away, just suffice it to say the story will keep you reading and wishing it hadn't ended.

    I hope that in future editions Kinnaird gets the chance to give more of the background to her characters and story. I felt that as I read I wanted to learn more about the history of the main characters and of the town All Hallows. This is not a criticism but a serious plea for more!!

    The descriptive power of Kinnaird is undeniable, this adds to the depth of the book and brings the story and its locations alive. I am looking forward to the next instalment of the lives in All Hallows.
