VERY SHORT INTRO TO SERIES
on 8 January 2012
I downloaded this for free thinking I was getting the first book in a series entitled, "Bitten;" however, it is not Book One (as advertised) but more of a couple of chapters to a full length story. A straight forward description would help since it left me feeling cheated with the hurried pace and forced ending.
This story started off with great promise as we are introduced to Ally, a confident young woman (25) who is looking forward to celebrating Halloween as a newly single girl. She finds herself attracted to a mysterious male at the club she attends with her two best friends. I found Ally to be interesting but was not feeling the love between the 3 friends. Ally spent more time complaining about them then bonding. Also, the eternal love felt by Ally and Ben was too quick and unbelievable, especially for Ally who didn't miss a single beat after breaking up with a boyfriend of 8 months. Perhaps this brief sample didn't allow for any other option but it felt too hurried to be a good story.
Will I read the Bitten Series? I might give it a try if the price was right and the author fulfills the flashes of promise offered here. There were several interesting threads (did Ally know Ben prior to this night? How does transformation take place? etc) but please, pretty please, stop telling us how vampire marriages are like being married to a sibling!
