Easy somewhat enjoyable read but little depth,
This review is from: The Blood That Bonds (The II AM Trilogy Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I started reading vampire fiction, along with a lot of other girls, in my teenage years. I'm in my early 20s now and have ripped through a fair few of the genre. These stories can quickly become samey and therefore boring.
To the author's credit there are some novel ideas. However, it lacked the level of depth that makes books of this genre stand apart. I felt it hard to identify with, or even like, the female lead at times. Never jealous when your boyfriend is telling you his happy memories of the woman he'd be with if you weren't around? Not even questioning a lack of jealousy? Nutter. Unquestioning devotion to a man isn't romantic, it's creepy.
Also "Two had never been a heavy girl to begin with, but now vampirism had shaped her form to its absolute peak. Clothes that would have fit the Two that Darren had known were now a little loose" Wait, you're saying that a woman's physical peak is skinnier than when she is hooked on smack? Nice to know. Need to change my diet.
It's free and quite short, so if you're at a loose end I would recommend it. Otherwise, not so much.
