I was recommended this book by Amazon as it fits in with my usual kindle purchases. It starts off promising with the requisite drama and blood-shed followed by the devastatingly handsome hero meeting the spunky heroine. However, after this it goes down-hill, don't get me wrong it was enjoyable and there are some good emotional moments as well as some hot(ish) scenes, but I feel the overall book was ruined by the 'preachyness' of the organics and environmental content.
Although the environmental issues brought up are important, personally I read to escape the real world and don't want to have to worry about the 'greenness' of washing-up-up liquid when I'm reading about Vampiric escapades. Oh yes, and really, a sexy alpha hero driving a Prius? I laughed at that one!
As to characters and plot, while nothing was wrong with them they simply failed to connect or present much depth. The same with the plot, it felt rather convoluted and slow to unfold, as well as the seemingly major hurdles that were brought up were all overcome almost immediately with no real effort.
Overall I found this book to be OK but nothing special, if you're looking for entertainment with depth of characters, a well developed and coherent world containing some sexy lead characters and scenes, I'd look elsewhere.
However, if you want something fairly light and don't mind being preached to a bit then try it, you may well like it.
