In terms of the plot aside from the initial action the core plot until at least 80% of the way through was simply a progressive reveal of the protagonist's back-story. The authors maintained the suspense by having characters refuse to tell the protagonist what was going on i.e. scene one, a character tells the protagonist something, but refuses to tell her more; scene two, move to another location and another character tells the protagonist something, but holds back on something else; scene three, move to a new location and first character tells protagonist a bit more, but still holds something back etc. Three quarters of the way through the book I was still wondering when the actual story was going to start and I'd say the vast majority of the novel was simply characters explaining the protagonist's situation.
The second issue was that few of the characters were fully developed. The protagonist was merely shaped by the events that happened around her and I had no sense of what she was like as a person. As she holds the story together the book really suffered from this weak characterisation and it she has not piqued my interest enough to want to read on in the series. Another main character, her grandmother, was confusing, seeming to flit between personalities in the way she responded to events. A further irritation was that whenever a character was surprised or scared they started to stammer, so throughout the book at least four different characters stammered in very unnatural-sounding dialogue.
By the end of the book I realised that this book was actually simply a set-up for the series and the back-story to pave the way for being able to now start the action. It's a shame because I do feel there are elements here that lend themselves to a promising series and with further editing this could have been a great book, but I'm afraid I'm not invested enough in the characters or this world to want to read on.
FOR THOSE WHO DON'T LIKE SPOILERS, DO NOT READ FURTHER
Anastasia is a girl who has been forced to be dragged around places with her mother running away from who knows what. Then one night, a vampire breaks into her house searching for her. As he reaches out for her, an unknown saviour dragshim out. Her mother gives orders to a house. There Ana finds out she's a witch who is heir to the throne. When Ana goes to Brighton she finds out odd things and meets lots of people. Apparently she was reincarnated for around seven lives and each one she spend with her vampire sweetheart Tristan. Ana meets Derek who captures her heart. She has to choose between the two and faces more difficulties along the way.
What I kind of disliked was Ana's decision of choosing Darren over Tristan. Darren: Knows barely anything about him and doesn't know him for a long time. Tristan: Someone she has know for hundreds of years who let himself be tortured for her..
What I also dislike was that the author didn't really describe Ana's feeling that well when she was about to be burned! I mean in just a few paragraphs the author described what its like to have people who only a few days ago worshiped you, turned against you and wanted to burn you alive! And then she was saved by the love of her (multiple lives)and then her family hugs her and they are all LAUGHING!!
Although I really enjoyed the first book I will not buy the sequel as I just like to leave the story were is says 'He took me into his arms and we disappeared into the night. A simple romantic ending what else could I ask for? I will leave the Forever Trilogy at that.
