It's taken me some time to read this ebook, reading it in chunks over the past nine months when the opportunity has arisen and I've not had any dead-tree books to occupy myself with. I was surprised to find though that this didn't impede my enjoyment of the story, and my memories of the story so far hadn't faded as much as I thought they might.
The novel is an interesting take on the vampire meme and Peter David certainly shows that he's able to think outside the box with his storylines. From what sounds like a simple premise he's created a rich world inhabited by deep and varied characters with a complex set of storylines.
Probably the best vampire story I've read, and definitely a world with plenty of possibilities for more stories to come.

I knew from the moment I started this one (after previously devouring the first part), how it was going to end. I fought it hard and kept looking for something else in the narrative that would surprise me. The villain, the love interest, the final conclusion of it all... entirely see-through in regards to the plot development. I was again surprised with how much some of the wit and sarcasm snuck up on me... but it got old really fast, and overplayed. I went from liking the nonchalant attitude of Vinnie, to just kind of thinking he was an immature douche in his mid-20's who liked to whine. Amber, his minor love interest, felt more like 17 and sassy, instead of the 21-year-old killer she was supposed to be. I really didn't care for Hannah at all.
However, as "bad" as the love story, repetitive dialogue, and lack of surprises were... I wouldn't say I didn't like this book. It isn't one of my favorites for the genre (of horror, satire, parody, or tween-drama... whatever you want to call this), but I was satisfied with it. While you won't find rave reviews about it at your local book club, and I doubt they'll ever turn it into the next Twilight-esque motion picture... you could find worse ways to spend $3 and a rainy day.
Worth a chance, but perhaps not a second read.
