(I was given this book for free on a read-to-review basis.)
Sarah is half-human, half-vampire. She hates her vampire side, and takes serums to hide her vampire qualities. She's also been searching for a serum that will turn her 100% human.

William is also half-human, half vampire, and is Sarah's other half - they can't live without each other.

Sarah and William meet and are on the run from `seekers' - demons who want to kill them, as there is some kind of prophecy about Sarah and William ending the war between the vampires and demons in the underworld.

I really struggled with this book. It was slow, I didn't find it interesting, and it really didn't hold my attention, which was disappointing as I thought blurb sounded so good.
I forced myself to keep reading just because I hate not knowing how a book ends, but I kept having to put it down for lack of motivation, and ended up skim-reading the majority of the book.

I think one of the main problems was the amount of information constantly being presented which was just information overload for me. I was a bit confused in places - the characters are driving a hummer, then they take a plane to Brazil, and then the hummer is waiting for them when they land. How did that happen? There was also a bit of an `as if!' moment when the main characters took the hummer on a raft, which was just ridiculous.

Overall; I'm glad that other people have enjoyed this book, but it just didn't do it for me.
2 out of 10.

So when I read the description of the book and was so lucky to get a review copy, I was thrilled. I was kind of dissappointed for the following reasons: It was hard to get into the story, for I found the characters very hard to relate to. Maybe I missed it, but I didn't even know the hair colour of the female protagonist until somewhere in the middle of the book - not to speak of other features (except for her oh-so-important-tattoo), or the male protagonist. However, the villains and bad guys were described in detail. The turns in the plot were kind of silly and I kind of knew what would happen next. Also, many things aren't really described properly (especially events that are only talked about and haven't been in the book) or the characters suddenly move from A to B without any sentence that says so. For example Sarah hides behind a door, because she hears people talking behind it. Then the door is suddenly half opened so she can put her hand outside and then suddenly she stands outside and is able to look into the other character's eyes.
Sarah's love interest William is kind of shallow. He is Mr. Know-it-all and treats Sarah like she's a baby. [SPOILER]And then he doesn't even realize that the evil witch Xela changed bodies with Sarah. Now with Xela's soul inside Sarah's body, she behaves really strange and a lot different than the real Sarah. If he really loved her, wouldn't he have realized? Who wants a boyfriend like him??? .
And what happened to the ghost of Sarah's mum and aunt? They appeared somewhere in the end of the book and it sounded like they needed to be taken care of, too. But nothing happened.[/SPOILER]

However, I finished the book and there were also some reasons to like it. The idea, the whole world this books takes place in, is very interesting!

Unusual concept for a paranormal book that the vampire race needs saving by two half breeds destined to fall in love. Sarah finally meets William, literally the man from her dreams when her life is threatened. Little does she know that it always has been but those who love her have done their utmost to protect her, even lost their lives.
You journey through with Sarah as slowly the secrets are revealed.

It had a good flow and was well written but it didn't immediately grab my attention but I think that may be more down to personal choice.

Well worth the read if you prefer YA

A great read for young adults who like paranormal.Many teens will be able to identify with Sarah,who feels different than the average person (because she is) and does everything she can to be a normal human. But forces of nature and her instincs take her on an adventure she would have never expected.Sarah grows through the story immensely and is a stronger and more confidant vampire who finally feels like she belongs in this world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Action Packed Urban Fantasy / Paranormal Romance 30 May 2012
By VanillaOrchids - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Sarah is young woman who was raised by her aunt Helen when her mother died after childbirth. She's always known that she was different. She's had to inject a serum her entire life to suppress the vampire nature, to seem more normal though she was never normal. Sarah has always looked younger than she really is, so she was always teased or made fun of, but with two unwavering best friends, Mira and Xander, she's lived a relatively normal life. But what Sarah doesn't know is that Mira and Xander are demons who were charged with protecting her since she was a baby. They could shape-shift their appearance so that they too could appear as if they grew up with Sarah.

William is the only other half-breed, and Sarah has had dreams of him her entire life. She's felt this strong connection and love for him that she couldn't explain. William knew all about her and knew that the two of them together were apart of a prophecy that would save both the humans and the vampires from the likes of a power hungry demon lord.

Although I think the book started out a little slow, it definitely picked up. It was kind of like an action movie in terms of everything that was going on. Sarah and William are on the run from seekers who do the demon lords bidding. They can't always trust those around them as they might be shape-shifters. In this book, shape-shifters doesn't necessarily refer to a man or woman that can change in to an animal such as a wolf. It just means that they can change their appearance. I found the story to be a rather exciting ride, and I couldn't wait to see what happened next.

Since I'm such a fan of romance, I was a little bummed out about the fact that Sarah and William could hardly touch each other without causing themselves pain. There was a spell put on them to keep them apart. But I still enjoyed their journey to try to find a way to be together. And Sarah would flash back to dreams where her and William could be together without the pain, so it wasn't as if there was no romance between them.

Now, although I don't mind a book that is written from different perspectives, I found Two Halves to be a bit confusing at times because of it. That's only because when the perspective would change to someone other than Sarah, it was almost always clearly marked who's perspective I was now reading. However, when it would switch back to Sarah's perspective, it wasn't stated. So I found that kind of annoying because I'd be thinking about whether I was still reading the previous person's perspective or did it change back to Sarah's, and I shouldn't have had to wonder about it. It should have been stated at the beginning of the chapter or even at the break if in the middle of a chapter.

Over-all I did enjoy Two Halves and wished that it hadn't ended where it did. I would have loved more of Sarah and William's story. But as I mentioned before, it is rather action packed with demons, vampires, witches and warlocks.
